Creepy Dave shows up at Lynette's. He tells her he heard about the accident and bought Tom a new bass. Lynette says they can't accept it. Creepy Dave says it's a selfish gift because he was having too much fun to give it up. Lynette tells him she's sorry, but maybe he should try skateboarding with Orson. They really are making her out to be the death of fun this episode, aren't they? And right after she was all cool on Silverfizz, just like all the other kids (only in a mom-flirting-with-son way), last week. Creepy Dave says that Tom actually needs this. Lynette asks how he thinks he knows her husband better than she does. He talks about how she made him get rid of all of his things, and she obliviously says, "You mean his junk?" Yeah, I hate to side with Creepy Dave, but you're helping him make his point here, Lynette. Creepy Dave asks if Lynette knows what a midlife crisis is? She says her husband has a red convertible so, yeah, she gets it. But Creepy Dave tells her how it happens: A guy gets a certain age and realizes he'll really die someday and he's everything he'll ever be. He's never going to be rich, or climb a mountain. He tells her some guys do bad things with those thoughts, and that playing in a garage band is pretty harmless. Lynette asks if Creepy Dave plans to save her marriage by giving Tom a bass. He says he's not going to; she is. And then he gives her the bass with a creepy pat on her shoulder. And he leaves. Lynette, for the first time in possibly ever is speechless.
