Gabby wants Carlos to come along with her to run some errands. He says he doesn't want to be a burden, but she insists he get out and live his life. Cue the montage of Gabby driving all over, parking in handicapped spots using Carlos like one of those dummies people get so they can drive in the carpool lane. Until she comes out of the beauty salon to find the car empty. Turns out Carlos got hungry and asked a kid to take him to get a burger. After Gabby finds him and starts leading him back to the car, Carlos hears someone yelling at Gabby about whether that's her car parked in the handicapped spot. He's rapidly and righteously pissed that Gabby is using him to get good parking, and she gets all emotional as she says that if she's always going to have to be worried about stuff like leaving the toothpaste in the right spot for Carlos to find for the rest of her life (which I don't believe for a minute -- this show will cure him, mark my words, even if it has to jump five years into the future to do it), then she's taking the sweet parking spots. So there.
This must be the Founder's Ball. The banquet hall is all dressed up, and so are Bree and Katherine as final preparations are being made. But all is not well, as Katherine has taken over all the food stuff. She even told the chef that nothing is to leave the kitchen without being tasted by Katherine, because people say stuff like that for lots of reasons having nothing to do with setting up plot points for later.
While Gabby helps Carlos with his cufflinks, he apologizes for what he's putting her through. Her response is almost sweet: "If it were anybody but you it wouldn't be worth it." She says he looks good, and he tells her she looks more beautiful than ever. "Just a hunch," he explains. He shouldn't follow his hunches so much, because her hair looks like flat-ironed ass.
Back at the banquet hall, Bree is just about to throw out some dodgy spinach dip when she receives a final humiliation: she gets word that Katherine is going to be presenting the big award that Bree usually gets to give. Bree picks up the dip and is about to head to the dumpster, but Katherine stops her, reminding her that nothing leaves the kitchen without her tasting it. Bree manages a smile. "Dig in," says our serial poisoner.
When the party starts, Bree goes up to a table of her friends, who are surprised that she and Katherine pulled it off. "We were sure one of you would end up killing the other," Lynette says. And as Katherine rushes by in the background on her way to the bathroom, Bree says, "You should really have more faith in people." With that, she excuses herself to follow Katherine.
