Meanwhile, back at Susan's, she and Julie have concocted a plan to steal back the measuring cup from Mrs. Kravitz. Said plan involves both a Frisbee and Mrs. Kravitz's doggie door. That's all you really need to know.
As soon as Mrs. Kravitz leaves, the girls move into action, playing Frisbee across the street until it sails into her backyard. Julie then scampers into the yard, as Susan stands guard awkwardly. And it's all going so well until Mike shows up. And then Edie shows up. And then Edie wants to go in the house. And Julie is still in the house, stealing the measuring cup back. And so Susan -- because although she is sweet, she is not so clever -- stalls for time to get Julie back out of the house, and decides to do so by GIVING A WHOLE NEW MOVIE-RELATED DATE WITH MIKE TO EDIE. Susan. What are we going to do with you? Everyone looks disappointed and cranky except Edie. And Julie, who doesn't know anything about this debacle and only knows that she managed to snag the cup back.
House of Cable Guy. He's all trussed up in slings and bandages. There's a knock at the door. It's Carlos, who promptly beats the crap out of him. While Cable Guy lolls, moaning, on the ground, Carlos looks around the room. It's full of Homosexual Paraphernalia: a poster of Gypsy, lots of black and white photos of bare-chested men, a framed photo of Cable Guy with his arms around another man, bottled water. "Are you gay?" Carlos asks. "Is that why you're doing this?" Cable Guy moans. Carlos thinks. He is unable to admit that he is wrong, so he says, "Um. Yeah." And puts down the photos and leave. Tee hee. Is it wrong that I laughed at that?
Gabrielle and Lynette are coming out of Lynette's house, when Creepy Paul comes over. He wants to apologize for "the outburst." The ladies assure him that they understand. He then spins this crazy-ass story about how poor Mary Alice was "troubled," and used to leave terrible, mean hurtful notes all over the house. Notes for herself. Post-It notes of hate, if you will. Like I am so sure she wrote herself a mean note, then addressed an envelope, put a stamp on it, went to the post office, mailed it to herself, came back, waited to get it in the mail, opened it, read it, and killed herself. Lynette and Gabrielle listen kindly to this retarded explanation. They are so sorry for his pain! Had no idea! What a shock! Oh, poor Paul! He says that he hopes they can keep this Tragic Secret to themselves. You know, for Zack. They agree, and he walks off. The girls exchange a look. "Wow," Gabrielle says. "Yeah," Lynette says. "I think he's lying," says Gabrielle. "So do I," Lynette responds.
