Cut to the two cops bodily lifting Gabby, feet first, into the back of the police car while she screams "police brutality!" Carlos sips her iced coffee in the background.
Lynette is over at Parker's coach's house, trying to convince him that he shouldn't boot Parker from the team just because of her insanely inappropriate behavior. All Lynette wants is one more game, just long enough for Parker to see that he's a failure and quit the team on his own! Coach says something suggestive about how the team needs new "batting helmets," and Lynette reaches for her checkbook.
Bree surprises Dr. Keck's wife, Vera, by arriving on her doorstep with a basket of "shortbread biscuits." And that's not all she's brought!
Cut to Vera looking profoundly shocked, with Bree sitting on the couch across from her. So I guess Bree opted to tell the wife about Doctor NAMBLA's dalliance with Andrew after all. Bree tries to comfort Vera by confessing that the news wasn't easy for her to hear, either. Vera, with ominous restraint, asks Bree why she felt the need to tell her about this whole thing? Bree says something about how knowledge is power or whatever, but unfortunately it turns out that Vera -- who has always known that the Doctor had some very special patients -- was infinitely happier not knowing any details. Bree sincerely apologizes, explaining that if the cheating husband were on the other foot, she would have wanted to know about it. Well then, the timing on this one couldn't be better for Vera, because it turns out that she has a little news about the Van de Hodge family that perhaps Bree would enjoy learning: "Danielle is sleeping with her history teacher." Wow, Danielle sure got over Matthew pretty quickly. Ah, teen love. Vera, with honey-dipped sarcasm: "But where are my manners. I should have brought some biscuits with that." Oh, I like Vera.
Back to the tainted baseball diamond. Parker is once again at bat. Tom and Lynette are in the stands, having a cute heart-to-heart about how she doesn't actually think of him as a quitter, thought she'll admit that she does resent him, just a touch, because he gets to pursue his still-ominously-undefined dreams while Lynette is stuck supporting the family. What about her dreams? You know, Lynette might want to "write a book or start a magazine" someday. Modern Bribe, maybe? Bad Mommy? Tom nobly volunteers to take that crappy PR job Lynette's been pushing on him, but she tells him to stick to his dreams. They kiss. And just then? Parker hits one deep into outer field, all on his own, without Lynette paying anyone to do anything to make it happen. Imagine that! As Parker rounds the bases, Lynette whines that he's never going to quit baseball now. Wow, could she be a shittier mom? "Luckily" Parker trips on his way into home and hurts his ankle.
