Over the years, Bree Van de Kamp had grown increasingly concerned over her mother-in-law's forgetfulness. Her lapses had become more frequent, more glaring, and more dangerous. Yes, Bree was worried about Phyllis' faulty memory, but she was more than happy to remind her, especially when it came to the important things. It was in that moment Bree could finally see the truth. Her mother-in-law's memory was fine. It was her soul that was faulty.

Lynette: I've got this thing...
Nina: Good God, this is not about your kids again, is it?
Lynette: I know, I promised I wouldn't do this, but Parker really needs me to be there on his first day of kindergarten. He's so freaked out I can't be there.
Nina: I'm sorry. How is this my problem?
Lynette: Because we can't escape the fact that I have kids. I love my job, but to be fair, there's gotta be some balance.
Nina: Okay, how about the people that don't have the kids? Did you ever consider that they might need a little more balance in their lives, hmm? Like, maybe they want to go see a matinee or perhaps they want to come in a little late after a big crazy night out or maybe they just want to get a haircut, which I, myself, have not been able to do for two months. So, no, this is about fairness to the people who are childless by choice, okay?
Lynette: Okay. Good point. And I'm sorry about your hair. I can see why you're upset.

George: I don't understand. We're just friends. Why would the police assume that people in a platonic relationship would want to murder someone?
Bree: Um, um, during the test, they asked me some questions about you and, um, us and whether we had a relationship and I said yes, because it's true. And then they asked me about something else, something I hadn't considered.
George: Which was?
Bree: They asked me if I loved you.
George: What did you say?
Bree: I said no.
George: Oh.
Bree: But according to the polygraph, that wasn't exactly true.
George: Well, I don't, I don't know if that means anything. Polygraphs aren't completely reliable.
Bree: I think perhaps the machine picked up on something, something that I wasn't aware of.
George: Wow.
Bree: That's why I need you to take the test and answer the detective's questions, because I'm not going to know exactly how I feel until we put this behind us, but then, once we do...
George: We can move on.

Susan: Well, I don't mean to be technical here, but this show, I mean, it really is supposed to be a family thing, and I hate to point out you're not family.
Edie: No, but I have talent, and to most audiences, talent trumps family.

(narrating) Everyone enjoys a game of make-believe now and then. Of course, the ways we can play can vary greatly.(Shot of Chloe Pendgergrass and her tea party) Some tell ourselves that work won't interfere with our family life (shot of Lynette looking at a picture of Parker.) Sometimes, we imagine relationships as more meaningful then they actually are. (Shot of John and Gabrielle passing each other) Occasionally, we put on a show, as if to tell ourselves our secrets aren't really that terrible. (Shot of Betty and Matthew preparing food of their prisoner downstairs.) Yes, the game of make-believe is a simple one (Shot of Bree looking at George taking a polygraph) You start by lying to yourself, and if you get others to believe you, you win. (George states he did not poison Rex, and the polygraph reveals that to be true)

Mike: I'm trying to find Zach before he gets into anymore trouble. Do you know any friends that he might have? Anywhere he might be hold up? I know you were close to him.
Felicia: Funny thing... since he beat me and threw me down the stairs, we just don't stay in touch like we should.

Carlos: You never even apologized.
Gabrielle: I apologized a million times.
Carlos: Yeah, but you always followed it up with an excuse: "I was lonely; You weren't home enough; A woman needs to be loved."
Gabrielle: A woman does need to be loved! And since you didn't give it to me, I had to find it elsewhere. (brief pause)
Carlos: So that's what the teenager was doing in our bedroom? Filling you with love?
