Control. It's extraordinary the tactics people employ to obtain it. Some rely on deception. While others engage in outright trickery. Then there are those who resort to extortion. Why do we fight so hard for control? Because we know to lose it is to put our fate in the hands of others. And what could be more dangerous?

Mary Alice

Beautiful lawns, spacious homes, happy families. These are the hallmarks of suburbia. But if you look beneath the veneer of gracious living... you will see a battle raging, a battle for control. You see the combatants everywhere, engaged in their routine skirmishes...fighting fiercely to have dominion over the world around them, all the while knowing... it's a battle they will lose.

Mary Alice: The remarkable thing about Danny Farrell was that he had only been a paperboy for six months. And in that time, he had become the enemy of every woman on Wisteria Lane. If there was a puddle on someone's property, he found it. If a new rosebush had just been planted, he destroyed it. If a cat was enjoying a moment in the sun, he ended it. People wondered if Danny would ever change. They should have talked to Susan Mayer. She could have told them: obnoxious boys tend to become obnoxious men. Just like the one she had been married to. Yes, the women of Wisteria Lane believe Danny Farrell to be the enemy. They also believed the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

(talking to the dead rat) Hey, little guy. I just wanted to say I'm really sorry about what happened with the shovel, neither one of us saw that coming, I know it's not much consolation, but you really helped my marriage. That's a lot for a little rat to accomplish in one lifetime. Well it's getting late, so, hats off to ya!


Edie: You don't have the guts.
Susan: In five seconds, I'm gonna punch it.
Edie: (holds up a set of keys) Yeah? I'll key your car!
Susan: Not if you're sucking my exhaust, you won't.
Edie: Take back what you said!
Susan: No, I won't!
Edie: Admit it, you'd do anything to destroy my happiness!
Susan: Edie, for God's sake. Why would I care if you end up with a man I despise?
Edie: 'Cause you and Mike are finished. Yeah, word's out. And now that you can't be happy, you don't want anyone else to be, period.

Susan: Edie, what are you doing?
Edie: You are a lying liar.
Susan: We're in the middle of the street. Would you get out of here?
Edie: Karl never said that!
Susan: Okay, Karl asked me to get back together the day after Julie's birthday. I said no, which I'm guessing is the reason for the now legendary tequila bra-popping incident. Please let go.
Edie: Oh, no. We're not finished here.
Susan: Well, yes, we are. I'm gonna go.

Julie: He asked her out.
Susan: You lie.
Julie: It's true. He called her for a date six months ago. The day after my birthday party.
Susan: The one at the piano bar?
Julie: Yeah. What is it?
Susan: Oh, um, your father just came over that day and told me some stuff. You know, some stuff that I haven't and can't tell you.
Julie: Wait. Whatever happened to we share everything? Isn't that our thing, what we're known for?
Susan: Um, actually, I think what we're known for is sharing clothes. Yeah. I think that's our thing.

Gabrielle: I've just realized Rita and I have a lot in common. Carlos: Please don't tell me you have low self-esteem, because if I laugh now I'm gonna crack the one good rib that I have left.
