Last night's ep was great. The mom I love the most is Susan. I wouldn't compare her with Lorelai, as she is a couple years older and not such a quick wit. I still find her character hilarious. Teri Hatcher's physical humor ability is just awesome.

The most scary lines in the episode? "Not if I outlive you" and Carlos's line about how no woman of his would survive humiliating him in such a fashion. Yowza!

I love the chemistry between Lynette and her husband. It's sweet. And I can't believe how tame those boys were last night!

Yeah, there is something between Lynette and her husband that really seems like a genuine love. They obviously have some issues, but I think they are going to be fine.

How old is Gabrielle's gardener supposed to be? Algebra is late middle-school/early high school. And track practice after school seems to clearly be a high school activity (the key words in my mind being "after school"). Can he possibly be that young? Ew.

I don't know why, but I've got it in my head he is about 17 years old. In an early episode, she said something about him being "too young to smoke," which made me think he is under 18.

Which, yeah. How very Mary Kay Letourneau.

My sister swears he is 17, that she read it somewhere. I'm sorry, but that actor is barely believable as being college-age. Give me a break!

BigGayMatt is driving me six ways of crazy. I don't have kids...don't plan on having them...and still wanted to slap him silly the majority of the episode. Good for Lynette for doping her kids up on sugar. "Rex cries after he ejaculates." If you've ever wondered how to get party guests to leave...those are the magic words. I'll tuck that phrase away to use at JUST the right moment. The husband won't care, 'cause he'll get the joke.

Stacy at October 18, 2004 01:46 PM

Totally agree, Stacy. I now know how to get those pesky guests who stay too late at parties to put on their coats and back out of the house.

I was thinking the exact same thing when Gabrielle bought the bike. Any mom would be alarmed by that kind of gift from a near-stranger.
Maybe the writers need to spend more time developing their younger characters. Susan's daughter and the neighbor girl are way too savvy to be believable. How old was the neighbor, maybe 10? Do 10 year olds really know when a kiss is an about-to-get-it-on, cheating kiss?

I think it's wrong how much I love this show. Last night when Bree so clearly and matter-of-factly stated that line, I screamed...and then my phone rang immediately and a scream matching mine from my friend Mandy confirmed it, best line ever heard on TV.

"They obviously have some issues, but I think they are going to be fine."

That is a hilarious and disturbing observation.

Mike at October 18, 2004 06:33 PM

Maybe my view is skewed because I don't have kids. :)

freakgirl at October 18, 2004 07:10 PM

I missed this ep! Are there reruns?

Joy at October 19, 2004 06:01 AM

Usually on Saturday nights at 10:00pm, I think. Check your listings.

freakgirl at October 19, 2004 06:45 AM

Thank you!

Joy at October 20, 2004 10:30 AM

I think it's completely within the realm of possibility for a 10 year old to understand that a married woman who is kissing a man other than her husband is up to summat.

I think the show will deal with the girl getting inappropriate gifts from the neighbour woman...just not right away.

Elizabeth, you think the gardener looks old enough to be in college? I don't...I think he looks really young. I can totally believe he's in high school.

What is on that tape? What what what? It's killing me.

Maggie at October 20, 2004 10:42 AM

Entertainment weekly listed the gardner's age as 17.

gunther at October 20, 2004 11:30 AM

he's definitely in high school, although answering his cell phone "in class" was pretty disturbing to me. and he's definitely not looking like any 17 year olds I ever knew.
