Travers and Carlos are sitting on Edie's living room floor, gluing the model plane together as Edie -- sipping wine and wearing a very hott dress, her hair tucked back into a loose fuck-me twist -- hovers overhead, sucking up all those glue fumes but good. Edie tick-tocks that it's time for Travers to hit the hay, and Carlos volunteers to take the kid upstairs. While he's busy tucking Travers in upstairs (literally!), Edie busts a wing flap off the plane. When Carlos returns, Edie damsels about the broken plane, and Carlos gamely offers to fix it. But as soon as he gets started, Edie starts rubbing herself all up him. Weirdly enough, he pushes her away, saying that he's actually looking for a woman he can have a future with, not someone whose house is a revolving man door, and not someone who'd use her own son as "sex bait." Oh really, Carlos? Is that why you were trolling the worldwides for quality women like crzydncr206? And if that really is what you're looking for, didn't Edie's long haul with Karl adequately demonstrate her ability to settle down? Or maybe Edie's really, really been slutting it up as of late, but the camera's been too busy with Bree's storyline for us to see it? Is possible. Edie, offended by the "sex bait" comment, shows Carlos the serious hand, and then the serious door.
Lynette is on the phone, leaving a message for Tom, who's apparently a half-hour late coming home. Susan and Gabby are there, sipping beers and doing some lady-supporting about the Battle of the Tee. Gabby: "What kind of orange is this shirt, like a salmon or a coral?" Ha. Lynette whips out her shirt, and Gabby scowls: "Oh. Cheese Doodle." Ha again. Susan consoles that it's still not as bad as the "eye patch" and "stuffed parrot" she had to wear at the fish and chip place where she used to work. She lecher-winks one eye and growls, "Would you like to hear ARRRRRRR specials?" Which would be funny, if pirates weren't so totally 2004. (Actually, why do pirates even say "ARRRR" like that? Is it the rum? The salt? The missing limbs? Seriously, I want to know.) Lynette mercy-laughs at Susan's pirate impersonation, and then gives an emotional little speech about how the fight isn't about t-shirts anymore, it's about her entire working relationship with Tom. And their marriage. Lynette gets so worked up, she decides to go down to the restaurant this very second and tell Tom that she needs to "step back," and to maybe "hire a manager" to replace her. Lynette leaves, and Susan and Gabby sit there for a few beats, sipping their beers. Susan: "So I guess this means we're babysitting the kids, huh?"
