CreePaul rolls up at Edie's party, and Edie warmly greets him and his nice gift. He thanks her for the invitation, "considering how people in this neighborhood feel" about him. Edie tells him how inclusiveness is her personal policy, and then coos over the weight of his gift. Edie turns around, and there's Susan, who's hobbling on her stupid cane and carrying a tray, and wow, she looks like shit. Edie tells Susan that her champagne is flat, and she wants Susan to make her a "Rusty Nail" instead. Edie doesn't know what's in it, but she happily tells Susan that "it sounds obscure and complicated. So chop-chop!" Susan staggers off, and behind her, we see Carlos hanging up his cell phone: Libby's gone into labor! Lynette squeals in excitement, but Gabby looks like she's going to have a heart attack: "She promised me the baby wasn't due for four more weeks!" Gabby starts blubbering that she doesn't have diapers, or "the stuff babies drink." "Formula?" Lynette suggests. Gabby: "This is a total inconvenience." Lynette: "Welcome to parenthood." Hey Lynette, where's Tom? Does he not attend parties with you anymore?
Gabby and Lynette leave, and the camera pans back to Susan, who's behind the bar. Susan hands Julie Karl's drink recipe book and tells her to look up a Rusty Nail. Julie opens the book, and out pops the photo of Susan and Karl, which he hid there back in the episode where he and Susan had phenomenal sex. Susan is all confused. Why would Karl keep a photo of them together? And yet, the very fact of the photo isn't necessarily that incriminating. How often do people actually crack open their bartender bibles? Ostensibly, that photo could be a remnant from when they were married. Julie does some more eye-rolling, which seems to be her main purpose in this episode.
