The party's over. Bree shows a couple to the door, breathes a huge, satisfied sigh, and then turns spies something shocking: apparently someone has tipped a wineglass over on one of the side tables! MAVO: "After every party comes the time for cleaning. We attend to the champagne that was spilled [Bree sponges up the spilled wine], the knick-knacks that got broken [Edie sweeps up some broken china], the food that went uneaten [Lynette clears some trays from the table and brings them into the kitchen], and whatever other messes need...cleaning up." Gabby, who's washing dishes, tells Lynette just to hand over the trays, and Lynette, with a huge and tense smile, says, "So, Gabby? You know that...thing you and Tom did tonight, that...kiss?" Gabby, with eyes shining bright: "Wasn't that hysterical? The look on Tom's face!" Lynette totally fake-laughs, and then sort of tries to walk away, but...no, she just can't leave it alone. Lynette grabs a tiered tray of food (oh my god, the princess cake is not even half eaten!) and walks back to the sink. Lynette, with a kind of off-putting, syrupy, "no biggie" kind of smile: "I know this sounds silly, but...it kind of bugged me." And at "bugged," Lynette kind of scrunches up her nose. Gabby looks startled and asks Lynette if she's serious, and Lynette confesses that she really kind of is, but that she doesn't want to make a "big deal out of it." Except...could Gabby "maybe not do that again?" Gabby, looking totally befuddled, smiles and gives Lynette an "okay." Lynette thanks her and pats her arm, and Gabby turns back to the dishes.
