Katherine seems to have come around on Dylan's father. She tells Dylan that she' written down his mother's name, date of birth, and last known address. In short, everything Dylan needs to find him. But before Katherine gives it to Dylan, she makes her promise not to bring her father there or tell him where she is. Apparently he nearly killed her last time she saw him, when she said she was leaving and taking Dylan. Katherine really works it as she tells the story. Finally, all teary, she holds out the folded piece of stationery. And suddenly it's not all that important to Dylan after all. Try to act surprised that as soon as Dylan leaves, Katherine unfolds the paper to show us that it's blank.
Lynette is out front haranguing her kids about not keeping their treehouse clean when her sisters squeal up in Lucy's car, trying to ditch their mom back at her house. This turns into what looks like it could become a big ugly row over who wants their mom the least, until Lydia suggests they bring it inside while Stella herself stands there looking thoughtful next to Lucy's car. Thoughtful and unwanted and wondering if a homeless shelter could really be that much worse than dealing with these assholes who hate her so much.
While Orson is napping, Bree sneaks out with the baby to go to her friend's bris. And after the ceremony, Bree approaches the rabbi to ask if he can do hers too, and even claims to be Jewish. The rabbi's surprised to hear that this tall, red-haired, fair-skinned woman was born with the surname Rabinowitz. "I should only have a nickel for every time I've heard that," she says. Bree keeps up the Yiddish syntax as she explains to the rabbi about her "big stubborn goy" husband who's against the circumcision. Finally he gets her to promise, "I swear to you before God that his child will be as devout a Jew as I am." Good enough for the rabbi.
So when she goes home and tells Orson that Benjamin's been circumcised, he's rather piqued. Actually, no, he's pissed off. She claims that he considered his feelings, but since the baby has her blood, the decision was really up to her. And now Orson is enraged. "So who am I to Benjamin?" he demands angrily. "A friendly uncle? A male nanny?" Chastened, Bree says she has to remember it's love that makes them a family and not blood. So she hands the boy over to him. "Your son would like you hold him. By the way, his Hebrew name is Simkha." Okay, all better.
