At her cookbook dinner, Bruce drags Bree out of the kitchen and asks her to drink, but she won't because... you know, the alcoholism. Bruce tells her he really put his neck on the line for this, because no one likes the idea. She promises him they'll love the food, and he says they'd better, or she won't be publishing another book of any kind. Back in the kitchen, Sam tastes the food and practically gags. He smells the sherry and when Bree comes back, he shows her it's vinegar. She tastes at least three plates of food, and they're all... ruined! She tells the waiter to go get the plates they've already taken out, then she wonders who could have changed the sherry for vinegar. Sam asks if she gave Andrew's keys to anyone after she fired him, but he never returned his keys. Sam: "Oh, Bree." The waiter comes back and says they won't give back the food, so Bree uses a crème Brule torch to set off the sprinklers in the whole place. Then she comes in screaming, "We're serving cobbler in the parking lot!"
Later, Bree's depressed, so Orson makes her real hot chocolate. He asks if that isn't worth a smile. She tells him her son tried to ruin her career, so she doesn't think she'll ever smile again. He doesn't think Andrew had anything to do with it, since too much planning went into it. He tells her to think about it: The sherry had to be substituted after she'd planned the recipe and sampled it, but before the event. AND it had to be an ingredient she wouldn't sample. He tells her, "Come on, Andrew's not clever enough to pull that off. He can't even steal a case of wine without getting caught." She asks who did it, and he says it would have to be someone smart enough to get an MBA. She asks why Sam would want to hurt her, and Orson says Andrew's the one taking this fall. She wonders what he stands to gain, and Orson says, "Hmm. What a good question. Enjoy your chocolate." And wheels away, letting her think.
