Gaby asks the girls to pick up their toys and they won't. They're also snotty about it. Gaby asks why Juanita's being such a brat; when Carlos asks her to do something, she just does it. Juanita says, "That's because I love Daddy more." Sad music plays as realization creeps across Gaby's face. And as much as their story has had little to nothing to do with anything that matters this season, Eva Longoria is really acting the hell out of all of this -- playing so far against type that I actually forget how hot she can be until she shows up all smokin' at something like the Golden Globes. She says, "Fine," and throws the toy on the floor in front of Juanita, then goes out to the front porch to cry. The gardener comes by and asks if she's okay, and she says her kids know how to push her buttons, and they're not afraid of her. He tells her to practice her big voice. When he demonstrates, she asks if he has an extra 15 minutes. Inside, he's telling them to clean, and they're listening in fear. Gaby says she knows how much the girls love Carlos, but he's the one who sent Reggie over.
Edie's making Susan guess which month various magazines in the boxes that fell on her are from. It's really a silly game that would be nearly impossible, and it's clearly making Susan miserable because when she misses one, Edie throws it at her. I say it's a silly game, but then my sister and I used to go through every magazine that had a big list of people with biographical information (such as the "50 Most Beautiful People" issue of People) and guess how old each person in it was. I'm telling you: It's a fun game. Then again, it might not be quite as fun now that I'm not 9 years old. But I do tend to know how much older than me most celebrities are, so see! It made me smart. (Or maybe dumb?) A guy walks in and they tell him they've been locked in there all night. He says it's a good thing he came in to check the rat traps then. Edie's glad she didn't remember those until just now. She also tells Susan to forget everything they talked about, because she will deny it if she ever tells anyone. And then she adds she'll bring Susan's mail over.
Lynette's back at Stella's. She came by to tell her that the judge threw out Porter's case. Stella just looks sad. Lynette says she didn't put her in her to punish her; she didn't have a choice. She explains that after Glen died, Stella was out of control: gambling in Vegas and drinking. She brought Stella here because she loves her. Stella asks why she doesn't come visit then? Lynette says it's not pleasant. Stella says she's angry, but can't help it. Lynette asks her to try to be less angry, but Stella says anger's all she has left that's keeping her alive. Lynette tells her she will die someday either way. She says she'd like to be there with Stella, but things have to change for that to happen. She'll come at least twice a week, and she'll bring the kids sometimes. Stella would like that, and tells Lynette how good the kids turned out. She asks how Lynette learned to be such a good mom, and Lynette says she has no idea. Stella asks Lynette to get her flask for her, and Lynette looks scoldingly at her. Stella says she can't be nice, forgiving, and sober.
