Mary Alice would like you to know that Victor isn't above using deception to get what he wants. Which makes him different from other politicians...how, exactly? Well, what Victor wants this week is revenge for Gabby's affair with Carlos. So he's going to take her on a "romantic" little boat ride without telling anyone. And that film-noir lighting on his face does not bode well for anyone concerned.
After the credits, we're at Lynette's, where Bree has brought a swaddled, screeching Oompa-Loompa to wave around at her friends. Lynette, Gabby, and Susan all do their best to holler their congratulations over the baby's howling, until Orson has mercy on the women and brings the kid back home. Tom comes in and brings up the additional good news of Lynette's cancer being gone. Great news all around! Even Lynette's mom Stella gets into the act, as she comes downstairs in a bathrobe -- as does a heavyset, older man named Stan, also in a robe. Tom's robe, in fact. Apparently Stella met him at the card club last night. So Bree has a baby, Lynette's cancer-free, and Stella got some. So why is everyone suddenly acting like somebody died?
Later, Susan is trying to light a fire under Mike to go over to Bree's for dinner. She has to do it through the bathroom door, because Mike's locked himself in there with his new best friend, his pill bottle. He says he's too tired, but Susan says there's no way out of it. "This is what we do in the suburbs," she says. "The suburbs," Mike growls.
Dinner ends up being even less enjoyable for Mike than he anticipated, as he finds himself in a conversation about $10,000-a-year preschools, even though their baby "still looks like a seahorse." And speaking of other couples with babies, Bree mentions to Orson that they're invited to a friend's kid's bris that weekend. Orson begs off, pleasantly saying, "I just don't care to watch them ritually mutilate their child." It quickly comes out that Bree is pro-circumcision, and Orson is strongly anti-. Probably because he didn't enjoy it much himself when his mom took him to have it done when he was FIVE. Yikes. I wouldn't be a fan myself.
Later, Mike is taking yet another pill in Bree's kitchen when she catches him at it. He downplays it, saying it's just aspirin that he takes for aftereffects from his accident. But after he leaves, he seems to have dropped one of his pills on the floor. Bree picks up the tablet and holds it up to the light, looking distinctly unhappy that a guest would trash her kitchen this way.
