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.
Creepy Dave comes home to Edie, who's still upset he yelled at her. He apologizes, and says he'll make it up to her by buying Mrs. Hudson's house. She can't believe he'd cave this easily, but he says he thought about what a great investment opportunity it would be to buy it and rent it out. She's thrilled and promises to charge top dollar for rent. He's not worried about that and would rather do someone a favor. I wonder if this "favor" is actually some sort of evil plan he's concocting, or if Creepy Dave really is just that into having a garage band. Given that we've never seen him go to work, maybe that's the case, since he's probably extremely bored when he's not planning vengeance or whatever on whomever it is he's out to get.
Bree calls Orson to ask why he's not at her party. He says he's preparing for his job interview and can't make it. She's upset, but he just tells her to enjoy her luncheon, and that she's earned it. Over at the friends' table, Lynette's well on her way to drunk. Katherine's not happy that their designated driver would take her role so lightly. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that they'd need a designated driver at a luncheon, but somehow I am. I just cannot imagine what carful of women would think enough of them would need to drink so much that they'd have to designate a sober driver. Oh, wait, I can imagine it, and it's totally these people. [I just can't picture these women carpooling, despite the fact that they live on the same street. I'm sure they each drove their own car here. - Z] Lynette's still upset that Stu is doing the campaign, so she gets up to go offer Bree some advice. She interrupts Stu and Bree to tell Bree to offer coupons. Not exactly the type of classy marketing I'm thinking Bree was looking for, Lynette. Bree takes Lynette away from the table, and tells her she can't deal with her right now. Lynette says that she never looked down on Bree when she had the high-powered career and Bree was just the housewife. The guy at the podium says it's time to present the award, so Bree asks Lynette to leave. Lynette does, but through an emergency exit door, setting off an alarm and ruining Bree's not-even-close-to-perfect day.
