We first meet Mary Alice Young on Desperate Housewives just moments before she blows her brains out.  The first season of the show was about the mystery of why this seemingly happy housewife commited suicide.  As we delved into her and the neighborhood's secrets we learned why.  Althougth not alive, Mary Alice serves as the show's narrator and is  thus stilla  very prevalent character.

Mary Alice Young Quotes

It was at that moment it occurred to Ida, God may work in mysterious ways, but he isn't particularly subtle.

It had been one year since my suicide and a lot had changed on Wisteria Lane. There were new flowers, new houses and new neighbors, the kind anyone would want living right next door.

Desperate Housewives Quotes

I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.

Mike

There is a prayer intended to give strength to people faced with circumstances they don't want to accept. The power of the prayer comes from it's insight into human nature. Because so many of us rage against the hand that life has dealt us. Because so many of us are cowardly. And afraid to stand up for what is right. Because so many of us give into despair when faced with an impossible choice. The good news for those who utter these words is that God will hear you and answer your prayer. The bad news is that sometimes the answer is no.
