Susan is wearing rubber gloves and scrubbing out the garbage can from underneath the sink, when she finds a beer can. Julie, wearing a very pretty blue top layered over a red tank, wanders in at just that moment to report that Susan's "totally out of toothpaste" and offers to go get another tube. Susan asks Julie to explain the beer can. Julie shrugs and tells her that Austin brought it over the night she tutored him, and she told him to throw it out, "end of story." Susan, suddenly in mom mode (perhaps for the first time ever), asks Julie in a very accusing tone if she had any of the beer. Julie rolls her eyes and stomps off. Susan follows her, bitching about Julie's terrible timing: Susan's all set to leave for Paris and now it turns out that Julie has been inviting boys over for "Octoberfest." Um, Susan? It's one beer can. And one can of beer does not an Octoberfest make. Also, was it not you who got yourself barfing, blackout drunk last week? Julie orders hypocrite Susan to her room to go finish her packing. They bicker about which one of them is the parent in this situation. Julie: "Don't play the parent card with me; I just finished packing your suitcase, doing your laundry, and balancing your checkbook. And now I'm going to the store to buy your toothpaste." Julie clomps off, and the "Finally, A Spark of Rebellion" music swells.
Bree is walking down the Lane carrying a bump-masking basket full of flowers. Off to grandmother's house she goes? Jackie rolls up beside her in a convertible, wondering why Bree hasn't returned any of her calls. "Have you told the wife beater you're leaving him, yet?" Jackie asks. Bree gives her the brush off; Orson explained everything. Jackie scolds that "there's never a good reason for hitting a woman." Bree, brightly: "I used to think that, too, and then I met you." Jackie, with faux concern, tells Bree that she's living in a "fool's paradise." Bree: "I guess that makes us neighbors." Jackie falters, "What's that supposed to mean?" Bree: "It means you should stop worrying about my marriage and stop worrying about your own." Jackie gets out of her car and they square off, and now we're back in the scene we saw at the beginning of the episode. Bree asks Jackie whether the name "Monique" rings any bells, and Jackie's face gets that clubbed-baby-seal heart look that we saw already. Bree sure does delight in telling wives about their husband's cheating ways, doesn't she?
