Back at the Solis home, Carlos has cooked a lunch that consists of melted cheese over Brussels sprouts. Disgusting. He's trying to make vegetables more fun, but Gaby wants to start watching their daughter's weight. He says she'll grow out of her weight, but Gaby says not if the "sea lions" in his family photos are any indication. He calls her relative "stick-thin drunks." She says the sooner they can admit their daughter has a weight problem, the better. (I'm a little confused, because weren't there two little girls at the end of last season? Did they downgrade to just one chubby one over the hiatus?)
Lynette's sick of the twins, and leans on Tom's newly waxed car. She wants him to talk to them, because she's sick of being bad cop. He says he can handle it, because boys that age are more likely to listen to their dad. Next thing we see is Tom talking to the twins, but not in any sort of reprimanding way. He's more of a friend, listening to their funny stories about their pranks. Lynette calls Tom and tells him he's sending the wrong message. He admits he thinks starting a casino was sort of genius, and she calls him out for thinking the twins are cool. She says he's a former high school nerd living vicariously through his cool kids. He says he was cool, and she's like, "You played the trombone!" He says she's overreacting and that they're high-spirited, but he trusts them. He ungrounded them for the homecoming dance since she gave him the leeway to handle this. And then he storms off with, "Oh, and by the way, it was a tuba. Know your brass." I love Tom.
Now we're at the princess party, and Gaby's upset because Juanita is eating a second gigantic piece of cake. Gaby overhears two mean moms talking about what a shame it is that Gaby can't say no and lets her daughter eat until she's fat. Again, Gaby, the solution here is to PUNCH THEM.
Susan walks in on Gale/Brian painting. He then strips and they start making out. Lynette knocks on the door and Gale escapes out the window. Bob and Lee see him, and snap a cameraphone photo (that's going to come back later, I think). Gale's back in his painting jumpsuit and coming in the backdoor. Susan offers up a new rule: Sex only in the bedroom between the hours of 7 and 10 PM. He says it would be easier to follow the rules if he knew why they existed. But, really, he should be running in the opposite direction. I mean, he's a hot guy and there is no reason to put up with this level of crazy this early on, is there? She just doesn't want her friends to know, because it's complicated. But he says he's just a simple guy and can't be her dirty little secret. He needs more. She freaks out and says she can't give that to him, and storms off.
