Later, Zana is out in front of his house, strumming away on his guitar, when a car full of kids pulls up in front of Julie's house and Julie hops out. Zana yells, "JULIE!" and she turns and walks over. Zana is sad to inform her that his dad found out about the bowling, so they're not going to be doing that again any time soon. (The news about the body in the trunk would have been a punchier lead, Zana, just FYI.) Julie, who really is very nice, seems genuinely sad for Zana, and she tells him how very sorry she is about the lack of bowling in their future. Zana rushes to tell her how glad he is that they went, though: "I haven't felt like part of a family in a long time. Thanks." Zana turns to go back inside, and Julie grabs his arm and gives him a kiss on his cheek. Oh, Julie. I understand the sentiment, but I hope you realize that you're playing with fire putting your lips anywhere near that buttoned-up boy. It seems that Sophie's and Susan's penchant for creating trouble has been passed down to Julie, after all!
And then MAVO kicks in with her summary (which, I feel compelled to point out, ties in rather delightfully to both the opening MAVO as well as the overall "consequences of kissing" theme, which wends its way throughout this particular show...I say this only because far too often the MAVO "theme" is completely divorced from the rest of the show, and I really do like how nicely everything gelled together this week): "The act itself never varies, but each kiss carries with it a meaning all its own. It can convey a husband's eternal devotion..." Lynette and Tom kiss in bed. "...Or a wife's enormous regret..." Gabby puts her arms around Carlos and kisses him forlornly. "It can symbolize a mother's growing concern..." Betty kisses Matthew on the forehead. "...Or a lover's growing passion..." Justin necks with Andrew under the gazebo. "But whatever its meaning --" Karl and Edie make out on the couch "-- each kiss reflects a basic human need..." Alberta the Cat Lady kisses her cat. "The need to connect to another human being." Bree kisses a photo of Rex. "This desire is so strong, it's always amazing when some people don't understand it." Zana and Julia stand out in front of Zana's house as CreePaul looks on ominously from the window. Uh oh. Who's CreePaul going to brain with a appliance next?
NEXT WEEK: Susan meets a younger man, Gabby flashes the gardeners, and Lynette wants Tom to get a vasectomy.
