Season one of Desperate Housewives had the core plotline of uncovering the truth behind the show's narrator, Mary Alice Young's suicide.
However, the season did much more than that, introducing us to the lovely ladies of Wisteria Lane and their various joys and troubles in suburban paradise.
During the first season, Susan fell for a man with a secret life, Lynette had to deal with troublesome twins, Bree was barely able to hold on to her marriage until her husband's death, and Gabrielle had to hide her affair with the gardener.
So what's the best way to relive this fantastic season besides rewatching it over and over again? With classic Desperate Housewives quotes from the epiosdes, of course!
Here's some of our favorites.
