The next day (on her lunch break, I guess), Lynette sneaks back home with a box full of rat and sets it free into the "promised land" of her family's kitchen. The floor is covered with crumbs, which does a good job of reminding us why she's resorted to these lengths, but it still seems like a very bad idea. As the movie she watched the previous night so graphically illustrated, rats multiply (though I guess that would take two rats, unless this rat, like Gabby, is mistakenly knocked up?). Also, you would think that a mother might be slightly leery of setting a rat loose around her children. I know rats make nice pets, but even if this one is friendly and clean and rabies-free, it's still going to scare the kids, and there's probably going to be lots of screaming and mayhem, and who knows what the animal's going to do in that situation? Though knowing Lynette's children, it's probably the rat that should be afraid. In any case: bad idea!
