Then she goes to bank where Carolyn Bigsby works and asks her about Alma. She says to Susan that Orson, after Alma disappeared, completely cleaned the house.

Quotes: Edit

Mary Alice: "Brides are sensitive creatures. And no one knows this better than the bridesmaids who have to deal with them. But the one area where bridesmaids' tact is most required involves the dress she's required to wear. Yes, a bridesmaid can question many of the bride's choices, but the groom isn't one of them."

Gabrielle: "You heard me. And I want the bedroom stereo. want the marble console and that painting of Saint Augustine."

Carlos: "You don't even know who he is!"

Gabrielle: "I know he matches the drapes!"

Gabrielle: "Stop eating my fries!"

Carlos: "I'm hungry."

Gabrielle: "You know what the doctor said." (to Mr. Portsmith) "You should see his cholesterol. This man bleeds bacon grease."

Mr. Portsmith: "Enough! You two are gonna have to find a way to deal with each other because you are about to bring a child into this world. And divorced or not, once that child arrives, you will be bound together for as long as you live."

Gabrielle: "Well, in that case, have some more fries."

Nora: "I'm like, whoa, get a load of Mr. Two Strikes trying to tell me how to act in public. And then he called me a whore! We're done."

Lynette: "Okay, whoa, whoa, take a deep breath. You don't wanna break up with a guy because, in a weak moment, he calls you a whore."

Nora: "And then on the way out, he threatened to hit me."

Lynette: "Okay, but he didn't, he didn't, and you know until..."

Nora: "Oh jeez, Lynette, whose side are you on?"

Lynette: "I'm on the side of love. You guys seem like such a perfect couple."

Nora: "I know."

Lynette: "I just, I, I, you know, you don't wanna throw that all away 'cause of a little fight with no hitting."

Edie: "Oh, wait. You're eighteen, right?"

Mary Alice: "Have you met the perfect couple? The two soul mates whose love never dies? The two lovers whose relationship is never threatened. The husband and wife who trust each other completely. If you haven't met the perfect couple, let me introduce you. They stand atop a layer of butter cream frosting. The secret of their success? Well, for starters, they don't have to look at each other."
