Mrs. McCluskey knocks on Edie's door, and apologizes about the crack she made about her boobs. Edie says that's nice of her, and then asks, "Are you okay?" Mrs. McCluskey says she actually isn't because her cat's been missing for two days, and he's never been out this long. Edie says she's so sorry, but is sure Toby's fine. I don't know whether Nicolette Sheridan is a good actress or her botox is just working wonders, but I honestly cannot tell if she's lying or not, she has such a good poker face here. Mrs. McCluskey asks Edie to please tell Dave she apologized. Edie doesn't understand, but guesses she could.
Carlos can't believe Gaby's stunt. She says she's just trying to salvage what's left of their social lives. He needs to let it go and think about where to move. He says it's humiliating because he has to see these people at work. She says what's humiliating is being invisible -- waking up and realizing you've lost everything. Carlos is hurt: "Everything?" She says: Money, figure, social standing. Yep, that's everything. He points out that they haven't lost anything other than hanging out with unhappy snobs. She doesn't think they're unhappy, but he says she doesn't rub them. He says they're just as miserable as he was when he was rich and chasing their lives. He says they have everything: each other, a home, a job that supports them, and two little girls who love them. He's never been happier, and could only be happier if she would realize how good they have it.
Tom's reading Lynette's letter, which he says is the best "Dear John" letter ever, except for the part where she signed it "Love, Mom." Too late. She hit send as soon as he said how good it was. He's like, "What? You sent it?" She wonders why he couldn't have led with the bad news. They hear Porter's door shut, and Tom turns to run. She grabs his shirt to make him stay, and he's like, "One of us needs to live to take care of the other ones." She concedes this and lets him go. God, I love their marriage. I know some people think she emasculates him, but I actually think they both emasculate and empower each other pretty equally, or at least pretty realistically -- especially for this show. Lynette sits there horrified, but Porter just walks in and leaves her Yeats book on the desk next to her. Poor kid.
