Mike shows up at Susan's to tell her that he's moved across the street. He says Mrs. Hudson sold the house, and Edie told him the new owner wants to rent it. Susan looks a little worried about this new situation, but says it's great that they'll be "one big happy, divorced family." She admits it's a little weird, but she's happy for MJ and Mike's relationship. Edie and Creepy Dave are out for a stalk/walk, watching Mike as he leaves Susan's. Edie doesn't understand why Creepy Dave won't let her tell Mike they're the owners. He says Mike has too much pride, and Creepy Dave wants him to think of him as a friend and neighbor, not a landlord. Edie says with the rent they're charging, "landlord" isn't accurate. It's more like fairy godmother. She's mostly just upset that she's finally done something nice in the neighborhood and, being a gossip by nature, she wants to be able to tell everyone. Creepy Dave spouts a platitude about how if you're silent in your good deeds, you reap the greatest reward. I'm guessing the reward he's going for is not exactly the same one that Edie hopes to receive by telling people that she's done this one nice thing in her life.
Bree's cooking when Lynette walks in and attempts to grovel. Bree isn't angry, though. She's just sorry that Lynette felt this way. Lynette's like, "Which way? Drunk? Jealous?" Bree says Lynette has nothing to be jealous of and that she doesn't look down on Lynette. Lynette says she looks down on herself because of Bree's success, which is why she wanted to hitch a ride on her old-fashioned cookbook train. Bree wants Lynette to stop calling her a success, since it's not exactly successful to have friends who don't think you'll stick with them, a business partner who resents you and a husband living in the guest room. Lynette talks her up, telling her it's worth it, and that she'll be there cheering her on from here on out. She says all of Bree's friends are bitterly jealous, but proud. Lynette's sheer goodness and humanity here seems to have turned Bree into a human, because she cries as Lynette leaves and I have to admit to feeling a little bit sorry for her. It must be difficult being so robotic that you push everyone away.
This leads to our Mary Alice voiceover. She says you can see the jealousy in the faces of those around you if you look closely. Bree walks outside for some reason, and watches Katherine tossing out her trash. She doesn't see, but we do, that Katherine's throwing out the cookbook Bree gave her. Gaby's envy is about someone's love life. But it's not even clear who it is. Just a couple making out across the street from her, but I don't know who they are. That's how unimportant Gaby is: They can't even make her part of the group during the Mary Alice voiceover wrap-up. Mike's jealous when he looks across the street and sees Jackson in the house with MJ. Bree finds a way to deal with Orson's jealousy by giving him a chef's hat, as Mary Alice says the best way to deal with others' jealousy is to simply share what you have. (When did this turn into an after-school special?) Orson crawls into bed with Bree and she asks him to promise never to leave again. I would like to say her face looks resigned, or happy, or sad, or relieved. But, honestly, Marcia Cross has had so much botox or something that I cannot even tell what her face is saying to me anymore.
