Mary Alice uses the overly precious framing device of describing "the incident" as witnessed by an old woman (Mrs. McCluskey), a blind man (Carlos), and a young boy (one of the Ps). Since all that nonsense is little more than padding to draw the moment out to teaser length, I'm not omitting much when I simply say that the incident in question consists of Bree confronting Edie on the street over her kiss with Orson, Edie calling Bree a bitch, and Bree eventually slapping Edie. As the camera pans down to the boy's toy soldiers, Mary Alice obviouses that the battle lines have been drawn.
It's Mother's Day, and Mike's southern-accented mom shows up for a visit. She's got a gift for Susan: a book of recipes, some of which have been in Momma's family since before "the War of Northern Aggression." Okay, I'm trying to picture any kind of scenario in which this drawling Southern belle ever wandered off the plantation long enough to meet the elder Delfino played by Robert Forster, let alone marry him, and it's giving me the vapors. Of course, she's not so much a character as a walking, talking agenda: she's there to make Susan a better wife, at least in the traditional sense. And since Momma sees that goal as being "a chef in the kitchen, a maid in the house, and a whore in the bedroom," she intends to help with two of them. Susan desperately hopes that that last item isn't one of them.
Tom and Lynette seem to have arrived at a compromise regarding the question of a shrink for Kayla: they've decided to have a psychologist visit the family. He seems fairly cool, and as the kids head upstairs, Lynette sits the family therapist down and basically instructs him to focus his efforts on Kayla: "Tell her to stop being so evil." Right on cue, Kayla, who overheard the beginning of the conversation, comes skipping down the stairs with a picture she drew for mommy and leaps into Lynette's arms. Over Kayla's shoulder, Lynette makes it clear that she's not fooled, and they shouldn't be either.
Gabby and Carlos are sitting down to lunch, gushing about how great it is to have Ellie there. She helps out around the house, she gets Carlos out of the house once in a while, and her presence prevents the two of them from arguing as much. Speaking of Ellie, she's just now showing out a "customer." There's some allegedly hilarious misunderstanding where Gabby asks the customer if she can "see it," which Ellie avoids by saying that it's "down south." "Ellie gave me something for the pain," the customer assures Gabby. Oh, the drug-dealing hilarity.
