Back at the Christmas party, Karl shows up and tries to kiss Bree. She tells him they can't be seen together, because she told Orson about the affair, but not that it was Karl. She asks him to leave, since she promised Orson there would be no scenes today. Orson approaches them, and Karl tries to small talk, but Orson says to save it; he's not an idiot. He says Karl obviously heard they were divorcing and, being a vulture, came to be her lawyer. Karl admits it, but Orson says soliciting business at a Christmas party is tacky, even for him. Orson tells Bree if she wants Karl representing her that's fine, but he thought she had higher standards. Bree tells Karl to go before he figures it out. Karl's like, "Uh, yeah, about that." He tells her that her Christmas present is being delivered by air. He has to make one quick call. Back in the air, Daphne's trying to call someone on a radio, because she doesn't know how to fly. Not a great co-pilot, then, is she?
After commercials, she's talking to someone on the radio. The voice is talking her through it. First, he has her release the banner, and then tells her to look for a place to land: a field or large parking lot. She says she only sees neighborhoods, but the guy tells her a street landing is too dangerous. She screams that's all there is, and he tells her to calm down and keep the plane steady. On the ground, Karl's reached Jeff's answering machine back at work, which isn't doing him much good, since Jeff's in the air and dead. Karl asks him not to fly over Wisteria Park with that banner, and Bree hears and wonders what's up. He tells her, explaining he thought it was romantic. She wonders if he knows what discreet means: "No sky writing!" She says she has to warn Orson, but Karl says he'll tell Orson.
Karl approaches Orson and asks to talk to him. Orson wonders if it can't wait, and Karl says it really can't. They go inside Santa's workshop. [Which is incredibly spacious and well-decorated for a street festival.- Z] Orson says if it's about the settlement, he told Bree there's very little he wants. Karl says it's about what he wants: Bree. Orson says Karl's too late, since she already has a boyfriend, so Karl lets him catch up. Orson, "So, wait, you are having sex with my wife?" Karl goes on that they don't want to make this hard on Orson, but he wants to warn him. Orson calmly punches Karl in the face. Karl gives him that one, but keeps talking. Orson punches him again. It's so awesome. But then Karl decides to fight back. He tells Orson he's proposing to Bree with an airplane banner, which will be the highlight of his day. He pushes him down. Then Orson stands up behind Karl, politely says, "One moment please," and hits Karl upside the head with a giant candy cane. I love Orson.
