    TEASER

    1. Mary Alice begins to talk about how numerous women come together at Maxine Bennett’s house for a meal. But Bree’s convinced that Maxine is lying about her ability to put together something like this herself. When Bree wonders this, Maxine insists she did it all herself -- a 6 course meal for 10 women. Bree’s angry about this as she’s still sure Maxine is lying, and notes the pudding takes too long for Maxine to have done this all herself.
    Just then, there’s noise at the door -- it’s the FBI, and they come in with a warrant to look around. They burst into a side room and find a Chinese woman there: it’s Maxine’s slave! As Maxine is led away by the FBI, one of the other women is stunned by the revelation, but Mary Alice tells us Bree wasn’t surprised at all -- as the proof was in the pudding.

    ACT ONE

    1. Mary Alice talks about unlikely friendships, and we see several of them -- including a well-to-do woman and a tattooed man, a mailman who kisses a pit bull, etc. And then we see Edie and Susan as they approach Bree outside, wanting to know why she’s become friends with Betty. Bree tries to push away this talk but Edie questions whether this has something to do with Danielle and Matthew dating, as she was told Matthew and Danielle were kissing in the park. Bree insists she knows what she’s doing…
    2. At work, Lynette’s a bit annoyed as Tom kisses her. He wants her help with their boss, Ed. But Lynette can’t protect her husband at work, she insists. He needs to find his own way to bond wth him.
    3. Tom’s pitch for their client about bacon is bombing badly, and the only one laughing is Lynette. Lynette steers Tom towards his other proposed pitch, which involves a fraternity. And Tom and Ed begin to bond over experiences with fraternities. They agree to talk about the pitch over lunch . . .
    4. Carlos is outside his home with Father Crowley when Gabrielle approaches. They’re introduced to Xiao-Mei, the newly freed slave, and Gabrielle learns Carlos agreed to let her stay in the guest room. Gabrielle pulls Carlos aside and complains about this.
    5. Bree comes into Danielle’s bedroom and they end up arguing over how Danielle told Matthew the truth about Andrew’s secrets. Doesn’t she know that Andrew could go to prison if the truth goes out? Danielle encourages Bree to be nice to Betty, and everything will work out. Bree tells Danielle a story about how her stepmother once told Bree she had beauty, wit, cunning, and insight for her weapons. Bree urges her daughter to take care of her looks, as she doesn’t have any other weapons at her disposal…
    6. Susan’s at Karl’s door. She doesn’t have medical insurance, and wonders if there’s someone she can sue about that.
    7. A bit later, Susan’s inside with Karl and Edie. She doesn’t have medical insurance thanks to her former agent Lonnie. And she needs the operation for her wandering spleen as soon as possible. Desperate, Susan even says a small prayer. Edie has a solution: if Susan marries someone with insurance, all her problems will be solved. Susan likes the idea. But who to marry? Edie decides that maybe prayer wouldn’t be a bad idea after all . . .

    ACT TWO

    1. At work, Tom tosses some food into his mouth, and Ed says he’ll give him $200 if he can catch food like that 3 times in a row. Tom agrees, but there’s a catch: Ed’s going to throw the food to Tom! Lynette appears to think this is all stupid. Tom catches the first, and the second, but for the third Ed throws it badly and hits Tom. Ed gives Tom the money anyway.
    2. Gabrielle comes home to find Xiao-Mei doing something with her clothing. At first she’s mad, until she realizes Xiao-Mei fixed the outfit perfectly. Xiao-Mei takes her to the next room where she’s got food for her. And Gabrielle loves it!
    3. Later, Carlos is trying to kiss Gabrielle, but she seems to prefer the food. As they start to kiss and she gets undressed, she questions whether they should send Xiao-Mei back to China, given that people in China are sent to camps if they speak out against the government. Wouldn’t it be better for her to stay in America and learn about freedom? But Carlos knows she just wants her as their maid. When they argue a bit, Gabrielle walks off, telling Carlos she’s mad for him not helping spread freedom and democracy.
    4. At a restaurant, Edie’s with a man named Gary, and Susan approaches. Edie has to leave. Susan’s a bit taken aback to learn Gary wants to marry her because he’s gay and hasn’t come out to his mother, who’s said she won’t die until he’s married. They shake hands and agree to the marriage.
