Of course, if I don't start getting some sleep pretty soon, I'll be forced to move back upstairs out of sheer exhaustion.
Bree: My back hand is improving immensely, but you're still having problems with your serve.
[watching an S&M video demonstration with Rex] Rex: Well?
Bree Van De Kamp: Um, all this, um, wine is, uh, giving me a headache.
I remember the easy confidence of her smile, the gentle elegance of her hands, the refined warmth of her voice... Mary Alice Young: [voice over narration] ..the look of fear in her eyes. Bree: Well, why don't you move back upstairs, and sleep in my bed.
But what I remember most about Bree..., Bree: Rex, wasn't that a lovely...? Susan Mayer: How could we have all forgotten about this? It's just that usually when the hostess dies, the party is off. Lynette Scavo: I'm not being flip, I'm just pointing out a reality.
[first lines] Mary Alice Young: [voice over narration] After I died, I began to surrender the parts of myself that were no longer necessary.
I discovered, when moving through eternity, it helps to travel lightly. You're this, this plastic suburban housewife, with her pearls and her spatula, who says things like, "we owe the Hendersons a dinner." Where's the woman I fell in love with? Bree: Danielle, there is nothing abnormal about basil puree. How do you think it makes me feel when you say "it's okay" in that sullen tone? Danielle Van De Kamp: [turns to Andrew] Apologize now, I am begging. That certainly would explain why you're always locked in the bathroom. He said something happened to someone named Dana, and that he could never ever talk about it. Lynette Scavo: So somebody found out Mary Alice's secret... Bree Van De Kamp: Rex, this was practically assault. Stark, what Andrew did was clearly wrong, but in his defense, his mother and I are going through severe marital problems. I'm sick of you making our bed in the morning before I've even used the bathroom. Danielle Van De Kamp: Why can't we ever have normal soup? Bree: Change in behavior is one of the warning signs and you have been as fresh as paint for the last six months. Susan Mayer: I figure Dana has something to do with what Mary Alice was trying to hide. Rex Van De Kamp: You're going to ruin his whole future over a little rough housing? You're gonna to be served with divorce papers later today. Rex Van De Kamp: Bree, I've gone to an attorney. Bree Van De Kamp: But whatever problems your father and I have, it doesn't change the fact that we love you very, very much. If one of us says it, the other backs off immediately. It's astonishing to look back on the world I left behind. And for a woman who despised loose ends, that was unacceptable...
