Meanwhile, over on the set of Fried Green Tomatoes, Susan is waiting for a parking spot when a guy zips in and steals it right out from under her. She honks and screeches, but he dickishly blows her off, so she stomps out of her car, yelling that she waited while the guy leaving the spot "made three phone calls and flossed his teeth," which means the spot clearly belongs to her. Are parking spots really this scarce in Fairview? That seems just utterly unimaginable. The fight escalates and, and by the time the police arrive, with guns drawn, Susan's stolen the guy's keys and locked herself inside his car, and she's crushing his trachea in the crack of the electric window.
Edie "She Puts the Ex in Sex" Britt. Wearing an insanely patriotic red, white, and blue dress that's so form-fitting that it looks like a bathing suit, but a bathing suit with a long, knee-length skirt, she peers out her front curtains at Lynette, who's getting into her car across the street. In a scene lifted directly from Veronica Mars, Edie suspects that Lynette's been avoiding her calls, and she confirms it by dialing Lynette on her cell and watching as Lynette screens her straight to voicemail. Since when did Edie and Lynette's friendship escalate to just-calling-to-chat levels, anyway? Edie rants, she raves, but Carlos tells her to relax: Lynette's probably just "busy" or whatevs. Carlos, the by way, is fully dressed and lounging on Edie's couch and reading the paper, so I guess they've graduated past the "sex every second of the day" stage of the relationship and are now onto "established couple" activities like hanging out and reading the paper? Though why Edie's selected a crazy Lycra dress for Couple's Casual Day I can't really figure. Edie seethes that Lynette's cold-shouldering has Gabby's frosty prints all over it, and Carlos tsks Edie for telling Gabby about their affair in the first place. But Edie is fighting mad now, and she stomps outside to deal with the Lynette problem.
Lynette, spying Miss American Edie stomping her way over, sets her face in a funny robot clench that's supposed to read like she can't see Edie, no, not at all. Does not compute, etc.! But Edie totally has Lynette's ticket, and she delivers a blow to the one spot Lynette's incapable of ignoring: Her Money Maker. As Edie so-sweetly informs her, it's Travers's birthday this weekend and hey, maybe the Scavoria would like to cater? There'll be a lot of pizza-partying kids there -- kids who'll almost surely want to hire the Scavoria for their own birthdays, too...? And just like that, Lynette caves.
