Lynette walks in on Tom and Creepy Dave's jam session. Tom's very excited, telling Lynette that in addition to him on bass and Creepy Dave on drums, Mike plays guitar and he thinks Orson plays keyboards. "Do you see where I'm going with this?" Lynette says she does, but is hoping she's wrong. Tom says they're going to start a garage band. Lynette, "...And I wasn't." Tom says they could even get some gigs if they're good enough. Creepy Dave says all they need is practice time: a few nights a week and some weekends. Lynette reminds Tom of his current gigs: running a restaurant, being a husband and a father. She thought he wanted to spend more time with his family. Tom can muster no response other than, "But we could play clubs." Creepy Dave jumps in, saying guys need to blow off steam. Lynette asks Creepy Dave to stay out of it, then tells Tom he knows she's right because he's far too busy. She starts to walk off, but he stops her and says she can't tell him what to do and he will play bass if he wants to. He's not hurting anyone. She stoops to a new low, saying that those with hearing would beg to differ. He asks her to please leave their rehearsal space. She tries to argue, but he and Creepy Dave play over her and she turns and leaves. I know I said last week that I love Tom and Lynette's relationship and I still do. I think it's the most realistic of any couple on the show, by a landslide. That said, I don't like that she argues with him publicly like this, making him look like a fool in front of his friends. On the other hand, it's Creepy Dave, who I would not call a "friend" of Tom's or anyone's, so I also want Lynette to stand up to Creepy Dave's bad influence. Anyway, I still love them, and the fact that they have these real-life issues and arguments is probably part of that.
Gaby's driving the new car, with the girls fighting in the back. Gaby asks them to knock it off, and then her car starts rattling and comes to a stop. Some jerk goes speeding by her, honking. Can I take a moment to talk about how much I HATE drivers who do that? I really hate people who drive by someone who is breaking down or in an accident and honk or flip them off, as if this other person's misfortune is an inconvenience to them. Which, maybe it is, but shut the hell up. The person who is broken down or in an accident did not choose for that to happen and is feeling way more inconvenienced and stressed than you. People who do this really should be sent to live on the same island with people who talk (or otherwise make noise) at the theater, and people who have LOUD cell phone conversations in crowded public places. These are all people who think about no one but themselves. Anyway, smoke is coming out of Gaby's hood. So she goes to see Andrew. She says he sold her a lemon. A mechanic told her the radiator's shot. He tells her he's had trouble with it for years, and she should use the jug in the trunk to fill it up with water when it's hot. Oh, and try to avoid hills and stay in the shade as much as possible. Gaby tells him she can't drive around avoiding gravity and the sun. He says she should buy a new car if she wants one without flaws. Gaby would rather take what's behind Door Number 3: Get the radiator fixed. But it's $300 and he's paying for it. He insists he's not because he already told her it was a piece of crap. She says she wants to talk to his mother, and he says Bree's in a meeting but he'll let her know, adding, "May I ask what it's regarding?"
