According to MAVO, everyone knew that Mrs. Kravitz was dead by the next morning. Shouldn't you be more concerned with your poor kid, MAVO? Seeing as he is totally deranged and all? I guess not. Anyway, over at Lynette's, she uses gum to bribe Parboiled, Parchment, and Parsimonious to keep quiet while she's downstairs playing cards with the girls.
Downstairs, KimberBree deals. "What the odds, first Mary Alice and now Mrs. Kravitz?" she wonders. Gabrielle points out that she's talking apples and oranges, since Mrs. Kravitz was murdered. Lynette says that she talked to Mrs. Kravitz right before she was murdered. "What did you talk about?" Susan asks. "Oh, she yelled at me for not bringing my garbage cans in," Lynette admits, "I'm going to miss her," KimberBree says smoothly. That was an amusing exchange. Edie rings the bell. Lynette lets her in, and all the other women look at anything other than their bereaved neighbor. "Oh, you're all here," Edie says sadly. Lynette explains that Tuesday is poker day. "Really? You know, I love poker," Edie offers. Everyone is silent. Bitches. ["And if they're playing poker, why do they each have different-coloured chips? It's not roulette." -- Wing Chun] "Okay, then," Edie says, and then tells them that since "the Ice Queen" isn't having a memorial service for Mrs. Kravitz, Edie is going to take Mrs. Kravitz's ashes up to Torch Lake and scatter them. She thought maybe the neighbors would like to caravan, and have a little ceremony. She hands out flyers, and tells the 4H that she's printed out maps if anyone needs them. "The dress is semi-formal," she says, and that's when the excuses begin to fly. Gabrielle has to work! Lynette doesn't have a sitter! KimberBree has to take Rex to his angiogram! (Naturally, KimberBree's excuse is the best one.) Finally, everyone looks over at Susan. "Well, Mayer? What's your excuse?" Edie asks. Susan stammers that she's...busy. With...you know....stuff. Edie cocks a brow. "Your friends are much better liars," Edie says, and storms out.
