Synopsis Susan Mayer plans a charades get-together for her neighbors. Her girlfriends are not too thrilled to attend, and make up excuses to get out of the evening. Bree Hodge later changes her friends minds when she informs them about the fight she overheard in the Mayfair home. (See Smiles of a Summer Night.) They call Susan to accept the invite and all insist that she invite the new neighbors. Susan sees Bree across the street and runs over to her so she can get the name of Brees gynecologist. Bree is hesitant, trying to keep Susan at bay from hugging her (for fear of Susan learning about her false pregnancy), and pretends not to remember the name of her gynecologist. Susan remains persistant, so Bree walks into the house, opens the telephone book to "gynecologists", blindly picks a doctors name and gave it to Susan.When Susan goes to her appointment the day of her party, she discovers that the doctors office is not only in a terrible neighborhood, but also the office itself is filthy, and there are prostitutes in the waiting room. One even openly admits to being there to get "clean urine. Later she confronts Bree about it at the party, and while Bree was horrified and incredibly apologetic, she could not give Susan an explaination for fear her secret would become known. Meanwhile, Bree spreads the word to the other wives about Katherine Mayfair slapping her daughter Dylan and the conversation she had overheard in her house. They decide to try to get Katherine very drunk at the party to see if they could coax any kind of information out of her. Earlier in the episode, we see her husband Adam outside washing his car when a random young blonde woman jogs by and asks to drink from his garden hose. They flirt with each other and she jogs away. Katherine then bitterly confronts him, eluding to the fact that this might be a recurring character trait with Adam.Carlos Solis begs Gabrielle to give him just two more weeks to dump Edie, and she reluctantly agrees. However, when getting ready for Susans party, Edie tells Carlos that she plans on announcing their engagement. Carlos is completely against this, for fear of angering Gabrielle, and asks Edie to not tell anyone yet. Edie agrees, but had secretly purchased an engagement ring for herself to wear so people would happen to see it and figure out Edie and Carlos plans. She pulls it out at the party and pretends to have her contact lens slip so everyone could look at her hand. Gabrielle sees the ring, and angrily pulls Carlos aside. He explains that it will be taken care of, and he needs more time. Gabrielle is not satisfied with this, so she goes into the house and decides to flirt with Katherines husband, Adam, to make Carlos jealous. Carlos breaks a glass in his fury and walks away. Gabrielle keeps this act up with Adam, not realizing how mad Katherine is getting. Edie sees that Katherine is not happy about this, and pulls her aside to explain Gabrielles reputation around Wisteria Lane, and tells her about Gabrielles secret affair with her teenage gardener, John Rowland a few years ago.Later in the party, Gabrielle accidentally spills her drink all over Adam. As shes cleaning it off of him, Katherine finally has enough and confronts Gabrielle in front of everyone, citing her reputation. Gabrielle is indignant and demands that she explain herself, and Katherine tells her in front of everyone at the party that she knows about her affair with her teenage gardener. Gabrielle, in her blind fury, spills the secret that Bree saw her slap Dylan when she asked about her father. Katherine keeps her already cool composure and admits that while she did lose her temper with Dylan, Dylans father had done the most horrible thing a father could possibly do to his daughter.Lynette Scavos mom, fed up with seeing her daughter too sick to eat from her chemotherapy, decides to sneak off and buy marijuana from Brees son Andrew, bake them into brownies, and have Lynettes son Parker tell her he made them in order to get Lynette to eat them. Lynette, originally too weak and sick to make it to Susans party, suddenly feels great unknowingly thanks to the brownies and shows up to the charades party stoned and acting goofy.Gabrielle sees Victor in a bedroom at Susan's house crunching poll numbers. She tries to console him and attempts to reassure him that her affair with John Rowland was a long time ago and not a big deal. Victor says that he's not jealous at all, he just wants to figure out how it will affect his poll numbers when he's running for Governor. After that, Gabrielle catches Carlos in Susan's bathroom and kisses him, then hits him over the head. Carlos, needless to say, is pretty confused. Gabrielle explains that the slap in the head was for letting Edie think that they were engaged, and that she not only loves him, but she loves the way that he loves her. She cites that when Carlos saw her with another man, he broke a glass in a jealous rage, whereas Victor just crunched poll numbers when he found out about her affair with John Rowland.Just before Gabrielle and Victor leave the party, Victor has a moment alone with Carlos, asking how he could have not killed John Rowland for sleeping with his wife. Carlos says that as much as he wanted to, it wasn't worth going to jail over. Victor chuckles and states that, if you're rich, you can make anybody disappear. Gabrielle then comes down the stairs, and she and Victor leave together.Meanwhile, while the adults are at the party, Dylan and Julie are studying together at the Mayfair house. Dylan tells Julie about her mother freaking out at her over asking about her father, and says that there is alot of old stuff stored in the bedroom upstairs, but its locked. Julie picked the lock and the girls started going through the boxes. Julie informs Dylan that this was, in fact, her old bedroom, and not the one she is in now like her mother said. Katherine then walks in and catches them, sends Julie home and forbids Dylan to hang out with her ever again.Orson Hodge gets a call from the convent where her pregnant daughter, Danielle, is staying. Danielle tried to rollerblade and fell, causing possible complications with her pregnancy. Bree and Orson are ready to rush out the door to see Danielle when the doctor calls and says Danielle's pregnancy is fine.At the end, Adam and Katherine are in the third floor bedroom getting it ready for Dylan to move in, in order to stifle her curiosity. Adam asks why Katherine had described Dylans father to everyone as doing "the worst possible thing a father could do to a child". Katherine said that it made people feel uncomfortable, and uncomfortable people don't ask questions. In the end, we see Katherine lift up the rug, kneel down to touch a dent in the hardwood floor, and cry.
