Creepy Dave calls Mike and tells him he has a busted pipe at his house. He blames it on pranksters. As soon as Mike says he'll be there in an hour, though, Creepy Dave takes a baseball bat to the pipe, busting it wide open. Maybe he should have waited closer to when Mike would actually arrive, to avoid wasting all that water? It's just a thought. When Mike shows up later, Creepy Dave asks him why he can't be in the band. Mike says he lives too far away and only comes over here for his son. He can't afford to live in the neighborhood. And a light bulb goes off over Creepy Dave's head.
Carlos and Gaby are explaining to Bethany's parents why they had to tell Juanita the truth instead of letting her think Carlos would hurt Gaby. Peggy's still annoyed, but her husband thinks the explanation's okay, so they let them back into the playdate. Bethany's parents just want her to be innocent as long as they can. Carlos and Gaby agree, and Carlos has to use an example, saying he wants his girls to believe in Santa Claus for as long as they can, before finding out it's all a lie. Right then, Bethany walks in and hears that last part. She runs off crying that there's no Santa Claus. And that's pretty much the last we'll see of that storyline, folks, so I hope you weren't wondering if that was the end of the playdates or if Gaby and Carlos ever will get to have sex again. Of course you weren't wondering those things, though, because the show has relegated Gaby to the completely irrelevant storyline every episode this season. Can't they somehow tie her into the season's larger issues, other than having her show up at a couple of events? If she turns out to be at the center of the mystery, though, I guess all of this irrelevant stuff would be a great red herring.
Lynette is telling Katherine, Gaby and Susan how terrible Bree's marketing plan is while they're sitting at her Businesswoman of the Year luncheon. They're all like, "Um, yes, you have told us that 700 times already; would you please shut up?" Bree walks up and introduces a kid named Stu, who knows Lynette. Turns out he was her old assistant. She totally makes him look like a fool by saying how great he was to schlep across town to get her Chinese food back in the day. Although, come to think of it, that makes her look worse than him, because what kind of person sends an assistant across town to get her Chinese food? The entitled kind, I think. If Stu did feel any humiliation, it goes away when Bree explains Stu's own company is doing her advertising. When he finds out Lynette runs a pizzeria, the tables quickly turn and he gets in a retaliatory dig by saying they'll order pizza from her sometime when they're working late, though it might be a bit of a schlep, since they're all the way across the town. I can't totally read the faces on the other women when Bree and Stu leave, but I feel like they all look pleased that it went this way for Lynette. Given their jealousy of Bree and now their apparent delight at Lynette's humiliation, I am thinking there might be better friends than these.
