Street fair. The Scavoria tent is going great guns. There's a line of customers and Lynette and Tom are cranking out the pizzas. Tom: "This restaurant is going to be a big, fat hit." Could a more jinx-tempting statement ever have been uttered?
House of Brats. Mrs. McCluskey is babysitting Kayla -- the P-kids are at the street fair. Mrs. McC brings Kayla a plate of cookies and tries to talk to her about how her refusing to go to the fair hurt Lynette's feelings. Kayla just keeps...drawing on her stuffed animal with a pen? What the hell? Is this some sort of new trend? Kids today love the Doobie Brothers and draw on their stuffed animals? Apparently so. (Note: Link not safe for work due to an incredibly loud auto-play song -- "I'm A Doodle Bear," to the tune of "I'm a Wanderer" -- that blasts your chi out of alignment the second you arrive at the site.) The doorbell rings, and Kayla turns, and with evil calm, just says, "Doorbell." Like a command. Mrs. McC gets up to answer the door, "Someone should be left on a hillside to rot," she whispers to herself. So it's Ed at the door, and he's brought Lynette a can of something...cookies? Mrs. McC covers by saying Lynette's at the doctor's. Over on the couch, Kayla shoots Mrs. McC a dirty look. Ed tells Mrs. McC to tell Lynette that she doesn't need to come back until she's really feeling better.
As Ed's leaving, Kayla sneaks out the back and meets him out front. "Excuse me, mister? I just wanted to tell you that my babysitter gets mixed up sometimes. Lynette's not at the doctor's." I wonder if spanking still legal in the Eagle State?
Street fair. Lynette tells Tom to fill her up a tray full of pizza so she can go "poach customers from that sausage-on-a-stick guy." O right, I forgot: Lynette is a bitch. So when the tipped-off Ed finds her, not only is she not barfing and screaming in pain like she's supposed to be, but she's actually carrying a huge pan of pizza with her bad arm. Lynette winces guiltily and tells him that she'll be there "bright and early on Monday morning," so the street fair IS on the weekend, which means she would have had the day off anyway. Why the big lie, then? Ed fires her, Lynette begs and pleads. Ed agrees to take her back, but only if she promises to work mega overtime, even if it means missing her kid's baseball game. Unfortunately, the non-twin boy P (Sensitive P) overhears her promise, and his face does its patented crumple. But he isn't even playing baseball anymore.
