Mary Alice shocks us by speaking up in the middle of the episode to fill us in on Bree's "problem" with her boyfriend's exhausting sexual appetite. Then Bree comes up with a plan: Overwhelm Hot Handyman with pressing construction needs around the house. He thinks he can finish by Friday, but she says she needs it all done by tonight. She walks away satisfied with herself.
At the Scavo home, Tom's heading out for the day with "his favorite cookies" from his mom. But they're not his favorite (macaroons); they're his dad's favorite (oatmeal raisin). Lynette makes fun, but also admits Allison's been great with the baby. She says he was right and she was wrong. Tom says that if those were macaroons, this would be the best day of his life. Lynette joins the family for a meal in the kitchen, where Allison tells Lynette she doesn't understand her going back to work. Lynette says that's okay, and does a much better job ignoring it than I would be able to. Then one of twins taps on his milk glass, and his grandma hustles to get him some milk. Lynette asks what he's doing, and he's all, "I was out of milk." Then the other boys do the same with their soda glasses, so Grandma asks Penny to get soda for the boys, while she finishes the meal. Penny asks why, and Allison says it's important to "take care of our men." Lynette tells Penny to stay seated; if the boys want a drink, they can get up and get it. Allison tells Lynette about the boys' long day, with classes and after-school sports. Lynette tells Allison that women don't wait on men in this house, so Allison calls Lynette a modern woman who just plops out a baby and can't wait to get back to work. She goes on that she took care of her husband and boys. Lynette asks how that worked out, since her husband had an affair and left. Allison looks devastated, and Lynette's face quickly changes from self-satisfaction to regret. As Allison leaves the room, Lynette musters a "Dammit."
Bree's reading in bed when Hot Handyman comes in to tell her he's finally finished all of her work and needs to go home and slip into a coma. She tells him that he should just sleep here, as long as he is, in fact, totally exhausted. He says he is, then hops into bed and immediately starts trying to sex her up. She jumps out of bed, and just admits it: She's old and can't keep up. He thinks it's ridiculous, because he can't keep up with a woman who talks to waiters in French and discusses the symbolism of plays. He says he's not as smart as her, so he's sexing her up to keep her interested. She says she is interested, and loves that he notices the wires while she's prattling on. She says he's fun and down-to-earth -- everything she's not. He hadn't thought of her actually liking him how he is, but she says she does, very much. "Now put that thing away and let's get some rest."
