Clutch those pearls

I'm heading over to Ruben and Mark's house shortly to watch Desperate Housewives. I know it's cliche and trashy, but that's what makes it so much fun. DHW is best enjoyed with friends by your side and a glass of wine in your hand. That's how Ruben, Mark, and I prefer to watch the show. Tonight I'm bringing the wine and some chocolate chip cookies. When one of those soap opera *shocking* moments occur, we gasp in unison and exclaim "ooooh!" Mark calls those "pearl clutching moments," since a proper woman would clutch her pearls upon hearing such improper words.

Gabrielle has had some of the best lines so far this season. We loved it when, after finding out that her husband cheated on her with the maid who was also their surrogate, Gabrielle told the maid that four hours after she had the baby, she'd be back in China on all fours in a rice paddy. We also loved it when she said "this dress looks like something Ike Turner would hit." Our favorite character, however, is Edie. She had a classic line recently when she told Susan that she had eleven condoms but could only account for eight of them. And it was fantastic when she told Julie Mayer that she was behaving like a good girl just before she became a bad girl. DHW always seems better when the three of us watch it together.

As an aside, I think it would be quite nice if Austin Britt played by Josh Henderson had a fling with Andrew Van de Kemp played by Shawn Pyfrom.
