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

(narrating) Orson Hodge had always assumed that the moment before he died, his entire life would flash before his eyes. But as he fell from the roof of the Fairview Memorial Hospital, it wasn't his life he saw. It was one night in particular (flashback to the night Monique Polier got killed).

(narrating) In every housewife's closet there's an article of clothing that tells you more about its owner than she would want you to know. It might be a shirt that she despises, but wears without complaint. Perhaps, it's some lingerie, she knows isn't hers, but refuses to discuss. Or a dress she once loved, that she can no longer bare to look at. Yes, you can learn a lot about women from what they choose to wear. You can learn even more by what they choose to take off, and who they take it off for.
