Bree calls the fighters backstage and tells them everyone realizes they're having a problem now, so a) they're fired and b) work it out. She storms off, and Lynette tries again to apologize and says how hard losing her job has been for her. Gaby "Boo-hoo"s her, and Lynette can't believe she doesn't care about anyone but herself. Gaby says she does care about her friends, but Lynette's not one of them anymore. She storms off and throws her hat down. It lands at Lee's feet, and he picks it up and giddily says, "I'm in!"
Bolens'. Instead of joining in the Christmas fun, they're arguing about Mona. Nick thinks they can't let a stupid housewife shake them down, but Angie says they have to make this go away. They only have $10,000 in their emergency fund (which you'd think they'd have spent on a hospital visit), but that's not close to $67,000. Angie takes off her wedding ring and says that will get them closer. They both look sad but resigned.
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.
