Plus de détails

Susan garde le chat d’une voisine quand elle se rend compte que quelqu’un est entré par effraction chez elle. La jeune femme donne un tournevis qu’elle a retrouvé sur le lieu du crime à un séduisant policier lors d’un rassemblement de voisinage. Il l’invite à sortir. Elle décide alors de demander la permission à Mike qui lui répond qu’il n’a pas d’opinion.
Susan ne le sait pas mais Mike est le responsable de l’intrusion. Il rencontre un vieil homme dans le parc et il discutent de l’avancement de ses investigations à Wisteria Lane. Quand, au retour de sa sortie avec le policier, Susan retrouve le tournevis qu’il était censé remettre aux inspecteurs comme pièce à conviction, la jeune femme réalise qu’il ne vaut pas mieux que son ex, Karl, et s’en va seule, dans un quartier mal fréquenté de la ville.
Elle emprunte le téléphone portable d’une prostituée pour appeler Julie et lui demander de trouver quelqu’un pour venir la chercher. C’est Mike qui arrive à son secours, et il est secrètement ravi de découvrir que ce tournevis n’ira pas au labo. Quand il la dépose chez elle, elle répond qu’elle est frustrée de ne pas mieux le connaître. Il se penche alors pour l’embrasser.


Lynette postule dans une école privée qui serait parfaite pour ses enfants turbulents, elle doit pour se faire amener une Bree peu convaincue à faire une lettre de recommandation. Pour être sûre qu’ils auront un bon comportement dans leur entretien, la mère désespérée les force à se dépenser pour les fatiguer, et ainsi duper l’école en leur faisant croire qu’ils sont « dociles ». Mais il y a une autre famille en compétition avec eux, et faire une donation de 15.000$ est le seul moyen pour avoir la place à l’école. Refusant de considérer la proposition de Tom au sujet de la scolarisation à domicile, Lynette le convainc de vendre son bateau qu’il aime tant.


Gabrielle est alarmée quand sa belle-mère, Juanita, arrive à l’improviste pour leur rendre visite. C’est Carlos qui l’a invitée parce qu’il suspecte Gabrielle de le tromper. La sulfureuse épouse essaye de s’échapper pour rencontrer John, mais Mama Solis insiste pour l’accompagner. Résignée, Gabrielle l’emmène dans un magasin de lingerie. Pendant que Juanita regarde son soap, Gabrielle planifie un autre rendez-vous avec John. Pour se débarrasser de sa belle-mère lors d’une autre sortie shopping, Gabrielle glisse un tee-shirt non payé dans le sac de la vieille femme ; elle est de ce fait arrêtée pour vol. Plus tard, Mama Solis raconte à Gabrielle comment elle a tué son ex-mari abusif pour protéger Carlos. La menace est claire.


Bree s’est rendue chez les Young et y a trouvé Zach en train de nettoyer le sol taché du sang de sa mère. Se sentant désolée pour lui, elle l’invite à goûter quelques mets de Noël qu’elle a concoctés. Ils se font de sombres confidences : la mère de Bree a été heurtée par une voiture le jour de Noël et l’orpheline a dû laver le bitume du sang de la défunte. Zach répond qu’il sait pourquoi sa mère s’est tuée, c’est à cause de quelque chose de mal qu’il a fait étant enfant. Avant de lui révéler ce que c’était, il devient terriblement énervé et s’en va. Déterminée à en savoir davantage, Bree l’invite à dîner. Quand Rex l’appelle soudainement et lui demande de l’accompagner au restaurant, elle annule son rendez-vous avec Zach.

Lorsqu’elle retourne chez elle, elle découvre que quelqu’un s’est introduit dans sa maison… et l'a remplie de décorations de Noël ! Sur la cheminée une guirlande dit « Paul, Mary-Alice et Zach ». Quand Paul, furieux arrive pour réprimander son fils, l’adolescent tend la main pour prendre celle de Bree.

Bree s’arrête chez les Young plus tard pour s’assurer que tout va bien. Elle entend une forte dispute mais Zach lui dit que tout est ok. Mais à ce moment, la caméra révèle Paul, étalé sur le sol avec une lèvre sanglante. Le jour suivant, Paul et Zach s’en vont, donnant ce qui ressemble à un dernier regard au voisinage.

Susan: HeyMike

Mike: Hey,hows it going?

Susan: GoodI just came by to say hello

Mike:(joking) Hello

(Susan gives a little laugh, thenlaunches into why she really came over)

Susan: Youremember that cop from the neighbourhood watch meeting the other night? Heagreed to run a fingerprint check on the screwdriver I found at Mrs Fome’shouse.

Mike: Hedid? (he puts the box down) Nothing was taken

Susan: Stillsomebody broke in, it is a crime. So the weird thing is, the cop asked me out.On a date.

Mike: Oh?

Susan: And Isort of said…yes. I was sort of curious what you thought about that

(Mike looks confused and uncomfortable tobe talking about this. He goes back to working under the bonnet of his car, sohe doesn’t have to face her)

Mike: You’reasking my permission to go out with him?

Susan: No.no. I just uh, was wondering your opinion

Mike: Idon’t really have one

Mike: Susan,wait. Wait. I’m sorry. My life its just ah, really complicated right now-

Susan: Youdon’t have to explain

(she walks away)

Mike: Susan!

Susan: (overher shoulder) Its complicated. I get it



(Mike is angry at himself. He throws hisrag down. He goes into the garage and moves the box again. Behind it we see arack of tools. One of his set of screwdrivers is missing.)



[INT – Young House – Living Room – Day]

(Bree knocks on the door)

Bree: Paul?

(The door is open, so she enters and seesZach sitting on the floor with his back to her, moving a scrubbing brushrepeatedly over the same spot)

Bree: Oh, hiZachery. I’m sorry. The door was open and…

Zach:(quietly, without turning around) Its okay. You can come in

Bree: Isyour father here? We were scheduled to do a patrol today

Zach: He hadto go out of town. Again

Bree: Oh.Um, I guess I can do it by myself

(she stops and looks around the room)

Bree: Wow,this place is just immaculate.

Zach: My momliked things clean

Bree: Zach,she would be very proud of you. (gasps when she sees what Zach is scrubbing at)what happened to your varnish?

Zach: Itswhere my mother died. They messed up the floor trying to get the blood out

Bree: Oh

(Bree can’t believe what she’s seeing)

Zach: I’lllet my dad know you stopped by.

(Bree is really heartbroken by what shesees)

Bree: Zach,do you have any plans for dinner?



[INT – Lingerie Store – Day]

(Gabrielle is wandering around thestore, not really shopping, looking at her watch. Mama Solis is behind her)

Mama Solis:So you shop a lot, huh?

(Gabrielle looks through a display ofknickers)

Gabrielle: Yeah.So?

Mama Solis:Most women that shop a lot, its because they don’t have anything better to do.

Gabrielle: Whatsyour point?

Mama Solis:Well, if you had children…

Gabrielle:(walks off) Here we go

Mama Solis: I’mjust saying that children give your life purpose. You get so busy taking careof them that you don’t have any time to wonder if you’re happy.

Gabrielle:You know, Juanita, this is so like you. I take you on a nice shopping trip andyou find ways to upset me

Mama Solis:Oh, you didn’t invite me. I invited myself

(Gabrielle looks at the time again)

Mama Solis: Youkeep looking at your watch. Is there someplace you have to be?

Gabrielle: (abit too loudly and forcefully) NO

(They get some strange looks off otherwomen shoppers)

Gabrielle:And for the record, I am not one of those women who has a hole in her heartthat can only be filled by a baby. I like my life. A lot. Its very fulfilling

(she slams a set of lingerie back on therack and storms off)

Mama Solis (toother shoppers who were watching the argument): Excuse my daughter in law,she’s very ‘fulfilled’

(They nod understandingly)



[EXT – Wisteria Lane – Outside Scavo House– Day]

(Lynette is refilling the hole the boysdug the previous day)

Lynette: Sohe just blew you off?

Susan: Itold him another man asked me out, it was the perfect opportunity for Mike tobe jealous. And nothing

Lynette: Well,did you bat your eyes? You know, it doesn’t work if you don’t bat your eyes

Susan:Honey, I batted everything that wasn’t nailed down. I’m telling you …nothing.

(Susan offers Lynette a bottle of water)

Lynette: Ohthanks.

Susan: Sowhat’s going on there? (points to the hole Lynette is filling in)

Lynette: Um(looks at her boys sleeping in two seats in the garden)….gophers

Susan: Wow

Lynette:Listen, I’m sorry about Mike. I know how much you like him

Susan: Aw,maybe its my fault. Maybe I just imagined an entire relationship with this manthat didn’t exist.

Lynette:There has been flirting

Susan: Yes,and the flirting made me think that he was kind and trustworthy and honest…andhygienic. That’s how it is with me. A guy just smiles at me and I’m picking outwedding china. I’m a mess

Lynette: Butto be fair, that is part of your charm

Susan:That’s what happened with Carl. I only dated him a couple of months. I filledin the blanks; I married him. It was a disaster!

Lynette: You think Mike is a Carl in disguise?

Susan: Idunno. What does that mean anyway? “My life is complicated”?



[EXT – Park – Day]

(we see a man’s shoes walking throughthe park. The shot pans up and we see its Mike. He’s walking towards a man(Noah) sat on a park bench, watching children play football (aka soccer to allthe Americans) )

Noah: If Iwanted to sit around and wait for nothing I could do it on the can. (looks athis watch). You’re late. Whats with the face?

Mike: Iscrewed up. I broke into the Fome house and almost got caught.

Noah: What’s‘almost’?

Mike: Iaccidentally left something behind with my prints on it

Noah: Don’tyou own a pair of gloves?

Mike: It’sthe suburbs. I didn’t think it would matter. Anyway, the police are running acheck, and I’m in the system. I’ve got to pull up sticks before they comelooking for me

Noah: That’sa sweet sound (re the noise of children playing) laughter like that, huh? Itpisses me off. If and when your cover is blown, you disappear. Until then, youkeep fixing the neighbourhood pipes

Mike: Themore time I spend in this town, the more I think we’re making a mistake. Theseare nice people

Noah: Mymoney says one of them isn’t

(A kid’s ball rolls up to where they aresitting. Noah stops the ball, and hands it back to the boy who comes to collectit. he’s all smiles, acting like a granddad helping his grandson)

Kid: Thanks

(As the kid runs back to his game, Noahturns back to Mike and his smile disappears)

Noah: Nomore screw ups

(He leaves, leaving Mike watching himgo)



[INT – Solis House – Living Room – Day]

(A south American TV show is on – a manand woman are sharing a kiss. We see Mama Solis is captivated by the show,whilst Gabrielle is watching her mother in law’s enthrallment with disbelief)

Gabrielle:I’m getting something to drink. Do you want something?

(Mama Solis shushes Gabrielle and wavesher out of the room. As Gabrielle leaves, she suddenly realises her mother inlaw won’t notice if she leaves to see John. A smile breaks out on her face asshe plans to see him)

(We see Gabrielle sneaking around theside of the house until she reaches a garage where John is working. John looksup as he hears Mrs Solis enter. He looks angry when he sees its her)

Gabrielle:Now don’t be mad

John: Iwaited at that motel for three hours for you. I had to use a month’s worth oflunch money to pay for that room

Gabrielle:Its not my fault. Juanita hasn’t let me out of her sight since she got here

John: Really?Well I don’t see her now

Gabrielle:She’s watching her Mexican soap opera. The reverend’s virgin daughter is aboutto be seduced by the escaped desperado. So until she puts out Juanita won’teven know that I’m gone.

(Gabrielle has been moving closer to Johnduring this. She runs her hand over his chest – but he moves away, still mad)

Gabrielle:Come on! I said I was sorry

John: Yeah.Just so you know, I’ve turned down half the pep squad for you

Gabrielle: (Laughs)You can’t be serious

John: Well,you know, I’m starting to think that maybe I should be with someone my own age

Gabrielle:But I thought teenage girls bored you, John? I thought what we had was beyondthat

John: So didI

Gabrielle:So why do you want to go back to something you don’t want?

John: Idon’t know

Gabrielle:Maybe you’re tired of me

John: No. Iwanna be with you

Gabrielle:So why are we arguing?

(Just as they’re about to kiss, there’sa voice calling from outside)

Mama Solis:(off screen) Gabrielle!

Gabrielle:Dammit! (looks at her watch. She’s confused) The virgin gave it up already?

John: I wantyou so bad. When can I see you again?

Gabrielle:Tomorrow. Meet me at the front entrance of the mall after school

John: Whatabout your mother in law?

Gabrielle:Don’t worry. I’ll think of something. (they kiss)

Mama Solis:(off screen) Gabrielle! Gabrielle!

Gabrielle: (screams)Coming!



[INT – Scavo House – Living Room – Night]

(Tom and Lynette are relaxing at the end ofthe day. Tom brings them drinks from the kitchen. They are sitting on the sofa)

Tom: Adonation? Now Barcliff wants a donation

Lynette:Apparently we’re in competition with one other family. A generous donation willensure our kids beat them out.

Tom: Howgenerous?

Lynette:(from behind her coffee mug) fifteen thousand

Tom: pff! Wedon’t have that!

Lynette: Andthat’s what I told them

Tom: So whatdo we do? Well, public school is out, unless we move to a new district

Lynette:We’re not moving

Tom: Maybeits time that we look into home schooling?

Lynette:(swallows the drink she just took) I know you did not just say that

Tom: Honey,its got its advantages. Kids who are home schooled do better in their lateryears

Lynette:(seriously) They won’t make it to their later years if I have to spend all daywith them.

Tom: Honey,sometimes you’ve just got to make the sacrifice. Its probably the best thingfor the kids

Lynette:(sarcastically) Why don’t we just put them back in me and cook them untilthey’re civilised?

Tom: You’dbe cool with that?

(They both laugh)



[INT – Van Der Kamp House – Dining Room –Night]

(Bree and Zach are sitting down fordinner)

Zach: I’venever had plum pudding before

Bree: I’mserving it this year for Christmas. I like to try out new recipes before theactual holiday. That way, if the cook book has gotten it wrong, I can fix it.

Zach: Youmust really like Christmas. You and Mr Van Der Kamp always have the bestdecorations on your lawn

Bree: Iadore the holidays. I never get depressed if theres a beautifully decoratedtree to look at

Zach: My momand I would always decorate our tree together

(Bree looks heartbroken for him)

Zach: ThisChristmas is going to be weird.

Bree: Oh,Zach. You know, my mother died when I was young. She was hit by a car

Zach: Oh!

Bree: It wasright before Christmas as a matter of fact. We were all singing carols and thedog was howling, because everyone in my family sings off key except for me.Anyway, it was just a terrible ruckus…so no-one noticed when my mother wentacross the street to give the neighbour their gift. The next thing we heardwere brakes screeching

Zach: Wow

Bree: Mostof my family went to the hospital, but I stayed home because I was so young.When I looked out the window I saw all my mother’s blood on the street andnobody was doing anything about it. So I got a hose and I washed it off. Andonce it was clean, I felt so much better.

(She shakes her head, to clear herthoughts)

Bree: I’venever told anyone that story before

Zach: Well,those are the most interesting ones…the stories that we never tell anyone

Bree: Yes,you’re probably right

Zach: I haveone. Its more of a secret really


(Bree leans forward, conspiratorially, really interested in what Zach’s aboutto say)

Bree: Ooooh

Zach: I knowwhy my mom killed herself

(This wasn’t what Bree was expecting tohear. She leans back, aghast)

Bree: Youdo?

Zach: It wassomething I did. Something bad

(they both lean back. Bree is totallyshocked, Zach realises he shouldn’t have told)

Bree: Whatdid you do??? Zach? Sweetheart?

(Zach grabs a hold of the full drinkingglass in front of him – he’s grabbing it really hard and Bree’s afraid he’llbreak it and hurt himself)

Zach: No!No, I’d better not. I shouldn’t have said anything. I shouldn’t have done this

(He gets up from his chair, and tries toleave. Bree tries to calm him down and stop him leaving)

Zach: If mydad found out..

Bree: Zach,calm down

Zach: No,please. I …

Bree: Zach,I won’t tell your father

Zach: Ican’t get you involved…

Bree:Zachery, its alright!

(She finally has to give up and watch himleave)

Susan: Youcouldn’t get any more out of him?

Bree: Oh, Itried. But he was so nervous he actually started shaking and then he just left

Gabrielle:Okay, this is getting really weird. I think we should go to the police

Bree: Andtell them what? We don’t even have the note anymore, we gave it to Paul

Susan: Thenyou’re going to have to get Zach to tell you something, so we have more to goon

Bree: Girlsyou don’t understand. This poor kid is scared out of his mind

Gabrielle:Oh, for gods sake Bree, you’re a woman. Manipulate him. Its what we do!

Lynette:Well you know how we both agree that one of us needs to stay home and parentthe kids and one of us needs to go off and make a living. And then I suddenlyremembered, when I was working I made a little more than you

(Tom looks scared out of his mind, ashe’s figured out where this conversation is going)

Tom: Whatare you doing?

Lynette: Youtossed out that little ‘sacrifice’ comment a while ago and it occurred to me,I’ve made sacrifices over the past six years. I gave up my career! If anothersacrifice has to be made I think its your turn on the merry-go-round.

Tom:L-L-Lynette?

Lynette: Soif I went back to work, then you could stay home and take care of the kids

Tom: I can’tdo that. The kids all day? I’d loose my mind!

Lynette:Ah-ha!

Susan: Hey,I thought this went to the lab?

(he realises he’s been caught out)

Officer Thompson: Alright. You got me.

Susan: Andthat means what?

Officer Thompson: Look, Susan, no one would authorise lab time or a computer searchfor a case like this. Its just not a priority.

Susan: Sowhy couldn’t you just tell me that?

Officer Thompson: Well, I thought we were clicking. Does this need to be a big deal?

Susan: Wellif you’d only lied to me about it once it wouldn’t be

Officer Thompson: Alright, I get it. You want me to beg. Okay, look at me (He goesdown on his knees) I’m begging. (He’s laughing, like its just a joke but Susandoesn’t see it that way). C’mon, don’t be such a girl about this
