At the doctor's office, Bree's telling the doctor that Orson's agreed to the procedure. She's very animated and says that any time the doctor wants to get in there and "start hacking away" is great. She turns to Orson and says, "Right, love?" He replies with a curt, "Yes dear." The doctor asks if two weeks from Friday works and Bree says Friday is Orson's golf day, so that's perfect, "right, Orson?" He manages, "Right ... dear." The doctor tells Orson he senses he's apprehensive about the surgery, and Bree says he's not apprehensive, but actually completely terrified. She doesn't care, though, because he owes her a big one. That's what she said! What on Earth has Michael Scott done to me? The doctor asks what's going on here, and Bree asks if he's married. He says he's not, but he just moved in with someone. Bree tells him that he'll learn over time about the balance of power in relationships and that if his beloved ever pulls a nasty trick on him like, "say, drugging you into a stupor, then the balance of power shifts to you; and you can demand they prove their love by, say, undergoing surgery." The doctor still doesn't get it, but Bree says he will. The Hodges get up to leave, and the doctor calls his said beloved and says, "Hey hon, can you promise me something? Tell me we'll never grow into one of those insane couples that just lives to make each other crazy." On the other end is Andrew (!!!), who tells him not to worry because he already makes him crazy. Oh, and he picked up their new end tables. How is it possible that Bree and Orson don't know their doctor is Andrew's live-in boyfriend?
Mary Alice's voiceover brings us back to the hospital hallway with talk of all of the recovery going on: A husband licks his marital wounds after a battle. That would be Orson, whom Bree smiles at slyly. Two parents rally after an attack of doubt (not to be confused with an attack of "gout," which is much more painful. This would be Tom and Lynette, back at the hospital to check on Tom's stitches, with Porter in tow. A wife has been cured of low self-esteem. That's Gaby, watching as the doctor checks Carlos's eyes. A pair of lovers find honesty to be the best medicine. Katherine and Mike walk arm in arm, and Edie rubbernecks as they walk by her. Sadly, Mary Alice says, some people suffer from an affliction they'll never recover from. Creepy Dave walks in, and approaches the detectives, who are still at the hospital. How much time passed in this episode, anyway? Creepy Dave tells them that he remembered something he should have told them. He was back by the storage room before the fire. Oh, good, he's going to tell the truth, right? Oh, wait, the season's not even close to over, so no; not happening. Instead he says he saw a kid from his neighborhood, Porter Scavo, in the storage room.
