At a bar with a big buffet of what looks like corndogs, chicken nuggets, and breadsticks, Billy Ocean's "Caribbean Queen" plays while Edie and Susan lounge at the bar. Edie and her beer and shot try to pick out men for Susan and her glass of wine. It's not really working because Susan hates them all. "Look at them leering at us, all cocky because they know they have the upper hand," Susan says blearily. Edie doesn't know what she's talking about: "We have the upper hand -- without us, they have nothing." Except their hands. And their cocky. Susan wails, "Maybe fifteen years ago. Not anymore. Now we're just lonely and desperate and they know it. And they just sit there ready to pounce. Waiting for us just to take any crumb they're willing to throw our way. I don't want crumbs, I want Mike!" She slumps her head on the bar. Edie calls the bartender over and gestures with her shot glass: "I'm going to be spending the whole night with her, so I'm going to be needing a lot more of these." Susan apologizes and says that she knows in her heart that Mike didn't kill Mrs. Huber. Edie wants to know who did, then. Susan suggests Creepy Paul, which totally confuddles Edie because she hasn't been privy to all the gossip and conspiracy fests of the past fifteen episodes. Susan quickly brings Edie up to speed with what the klatsch knows: dead Dana, killer Zach, and the blackmail. Edie straightens up and wonders, "What the hell kind of street do we live on?" They both drink. Even though it's all for the sake of exposition, there's something so great about seeing all the facts filtered through Edie's eyes and her "holy crap"ping at them. Edie recalls Paul's insistence on Mike's guilt, and also that Paul and Zach are out of town. She suggests breaking into the house and nosing around. "Oh, my god, yes -- we should do that!" Susan gasps, gripping Edie's arm. Edie's a bit taken aback and says she was just kidding. You know you're nuts when Edie's the one taken aback. Susan reminds Edie that Mrs. Huber was Edie's best friend, and that finding her killer is worth breaking and entering.
