"Desperate Housewives: Remember Paul? (#7.1)" (2010)
Lynette Scavo: Susan, Bree, Gaby, this is my old college roomate Renee.
Bree Van De Kamp: Hi! It's so nice to finally meet you. Lynette has talked so much about her friend in college.
Renee Perry: Oh yes. You know how in school the pretty girls always hang out together? Well I refused to go along with that.

Lynette Scavo: Renee comes off a little stuck-up when you first meet her. Which is a real time-saver.

Renee Perry: Lynette, why so mean? I worked on these compliments all the way from the airport.
Lynette Scavo: Drive slower next time.

Susan Delfino: So Renee, you have to tell us, what was Lynette like in college?
Renee Perry: Absolutely fearless. She just kept wearing those parachute pants, lesbian rumours be damned.
Lynette Scavo: Yes, Renee was always the one with the fashion sense. Before I met her, I'd never even heard of Gucci or Prada or Chlamydia.

Lynette Scavo: Well, of course you can stay here as long as you want.
Renee Perry: Thanks. And to show you my appreciation, I would like to pay for your first face-lift.
Lynette Scavo: That is so generous. Although, now that you've had nine, you probably get the next one free.

Gabrielle Solis: Wow, you guys play rough.
Lynette Scavo: No, it's just what we do. It's fun. I tease her about being all botulism from the nose up...
Renee Perry: ...and I tease her about being all cottage cheese from the waist down.

Renee Perry: I gotta say Lynette, this place is adorable. It's so cosy and intimate and...
Lynette Scavo: Pay attention kids. You're learning a lot of new words for "small".

Lynette Scavo: Hi...
Renee Perry: I'm back Rodolfo. Please tell Signor Cipriani I always stay at that suite when I visit Venice and if it's not available, I will be very unhappy. Now, if you'll excuse me, there's someone more important I need to speak with.
Lynette Scavo: Hi...
Renee Perry: Hey Jose. Thanks for holding. Look, I can't do Thursday, so...
Lynette Scavo: Jose, she'll call you back.
Renee Perry: Lynette, you haven't changed.
Lynette Scavo: Neither have you.


"Desperate Housewives: We're So Happy You're So Happy (#5.2)" (2008)
[Porter finds out he's been flirting with his mother online, when she signs a 'Dear John' letter to him 'Love Mom']
[He comes down to where she is at her computer, he has a very sad and betrayed look on his face, and he places a book of poetry in front of her and walks away, leaving her looking ashamed]
Lynette Scavo: [Porter is sitting at the table eating a sandwich] Hi, mind if I join you?
[he ignores her]
Lynette Scavo: OK, I know what I did was unforgivable and I am not trying to make excuses, but we used to talk all the time, and then one day it just stopped, and it killed me. I felt like I lost you and then I was Sarah J and I had you back and we where talking again and you where telling me things.
Porter Scavo: [Mad at her] I wasn't telling you anything, I was telling her.
Lynette Scavo: [Porter looks sad] Well, for what it's worth, I loved our conversations and I'm going to miss them.
[She walks off]
Porter Scavo: [Whispers] Me too.

Tom Scavo: [Lynette is sitting at her computer] What're you doing?
Lynette Scavo: I'm just talking to Porter on Silverfizz.
Tom Scavo: Who is Sarah J from MacArthur High School?
Lynette Scavo: Me! I'm sixteen, cute, I like graphic novels and Tokyo Police Club.
Tom Scavo: Oh my God! You're pretending to be somebody else!
Lynette Scavo: Our brooding son has a classmate who got arrested for selling drugs, I really think the ends justify the means.
Tom Scavo: We'll address you major ethical breach in a moment. What did you find out?
Lynette Scavo: The good news is he really doesn't hang out with that guy, but I am a little worried about 'Anita47' who told him cherry fruit pops are an aphordesiac.
Tom Scavo: OK, you got what you came for, you know who he hangs around with, now time to stop.
Lynette Scavo: You're probably right, it's just, did you know Porter writes poetry?
Tom Scavo: Seriously?
Lynette Scavo: Yeah, our Porter, the kid who communicates with grunts and shrugs, writes this beautiful, heartwrenching poetry.

[Lynette, not satisfied with Porter's unwillingness to discuss a possible frienship with a drug dealer at school,enters Parker's room]
Lynette Scavo: Hey Parker, can I ask you something? Just between us, does Porter hang out with Jimmy Kimrado?
Parker Scavo: I don't know, I could check his friends list on Silverfizz.
Lynette Scavo: His what on what?
Parker Scavo: [logs on to Porter's page] It's like MySpace, you have a webpage. It shows your hobbies, your favorite music, and you can talk to people.
Lynette Scavo: Really? Can anyone talk to him?
Parker Scavo: Yeah, he just has to invite you.
Lynette Scavo: And, uh, how would somebody make that happen?
[Parker looks at her curiously]

[Porter is listening to music on his headphones, when Lynette walks into his room, he removes them]
Lynette Scavo: Hey, got a sec?
Porter Scavo: Not really.
Lynette Scavo: So, I assume you know what happened to Jimmy Kimrado?
Porter Scavo: I guess.
Lynette Scavo: Your friend gets busted for dealing drugs at school and all you have to say is 'I guess'?
Porter Scavo: He's not my friend.
[implying that he doesn't associate with people who sell drugs]
Lynette Scavo: What are you talking about, you where on the same little league team?
Porter Scavo: Yeah, a million years ago, anything else?
Lynette Scavo: No, not really.

Tom Scavo: You told a teenage boy you liked his poetry? Geez Lynette why not just flash him a boob?
Lynette Scavo: shh he'll here you...

Tom Scavo: Dear Porter really like you but I wanna see other offspring...
Lynette Scavo: Go away...

Lynette Scavo: Tom don't you dare!
Tom Scavo: Hey one of us needs to live to take care of the other ones!

Parker Scavo: [Brings a check and money] Hey mom, this is for table 5.
Lynette Scavo: Ok, thanks. Uh, you didn't give them enough change.
Parker Scavo: Yeah, I know. i figured this out, you can short people one percent and they won't even notice. If they've got a buzz on, three percent.
Lynette Scavo: Ok, you make the salads, I'll handle the register.
Lynette Scavo: [the twins are fighting over who will wait on a hot lady] Well since I'm the only one who can wait on that table without knocking over the drink with my pants, how 'bout I take it?

Preston Scavo: Those kids go to our school.
Porter Scavo: And you know who that big guy is? Kevin McDurmot, the guy called me 'Jesus' for a year cause I wore sandals for one day! If he sees me wearing this, I'll never hear the end of it.

Preston Scavo: When we got here you said we could go in the pool.
Lynette: I said you could go by the pool. Do you have your swimsuits on?
Preston Scavo: Yeah, we put them on under our clothes before we left.

Lynette: [to Parker] Not now, honey, Mommy's threatening Daddy.

Tom Scavo: Patty gave me a ride home and for some reason Gabby's making a big deal about it.

[a motorcycle cop pulls Lynette over]
Officer Hayes: License and registration, please.
[she hands them to him]
Officer Hayes: Ma'am, you know why I pulled you over?
[she looks at the kids in the back]
Lynette Scavo: I have a theory.
Officer Hayes: The kids were jumping up and down. They should be sitting, wearing their seatbelts.
Lynette Scavo: I yelled at them. They never listen to me. It's very frustrating.
Officer Hayes: Well, you have to find a way to control them. After all, that's your job.
[he hands her the ticket and walks off]
Mary Alice Young: [narrating] Though he'd been a policeman for six years, Officer Hayes had never found himself in a truly dangerous situation. Then again, he had never before told a woman how to raise her children.
[Lynette furiously gets out of her car and slowly approaches Officer Hayes]
Lynette Scavo: Are you saying I'm a bad mother?
Officer Hayes: Ma'am, you need to get back in your car, please.
Lynette Scavo: I have no help. My husband's always away on business.
Officer Hayes: I'm gonna have to ask you to step back now.
Lynette Scavo: My babysitter joined the Witness Relocation Program! I haven't slept through the night...
[Officer Hayes slowly reaches for his gun]
Officer Hayes: Ma'am.
Lynette Scavo: ...in six years. And for you to stand there and judge me...
[she stands in front of Officer Hayes, who's terrified. He looks at the children, who are acting terrible]
Officer Hayes: Okay. I'm not gonna give you a ticket. I'm just gonna let you off with a warning.
Lynette Scavo: I accept your apology.
[she takes the warning, sighs, and gets back in the car]
Officer Hayes: Buckle up.

Susan: I think we should give it to Paul.
Gabrielle Solis: He's still mourning Susan. He'll probably freak out.
Susan: It doesn't matter. She was his wife. He deserves to have all the facts.
Bree Van De Kamp: Well, we could do it gently. We could tell him about it over coffee and pastry.
Lynette Scavo: That'll be fun. "Paul, we have proof your wife killed herself over some deep dark secret. Another bear claw".

Beefy Middle-Aged Woman: Listen, it seems to me that you have some anger management issues.
Lynette Scavo: I have four kids under the age of six. I absolutely have anger management issues.


"Desperate Housewives: Anything You Can Do (#1.7)" (2004)
Bree Van De Kamp: God, I couldn't wait to get rid of them! So, Lynette said that you found Zack.
Susan Mayer: He's at a rehabilitation center. Julie snuck in and actually talked to him.
Lynette Scavo: Did he say anything about his mother's suicide?
Susan Mayer: There wasn't enough time. He did say one thing that was kind of mysterious. He said something happened to someone named Dana, and that he could never ever talk about it.
Gabrielle Solis: Who the hell's Dana?
Lynette Scavo: That's the mystery part.
Susan Mayer: I figure Dana has something to do with what Mary Alice was trying to hide.
Lynette Scavo: So somebody found out Mary Alice's secret...
Bree Van De Kamp: ...and sent the note.
Gabrielle Solis: So who the hell is that?

Tom Scavo: Wow, honey, look, this place looks spotless!
Lynette Scavo: Thanks.
Tom Scavo: Listen, I have come up with this killer idea for the Spotless Scrub campaign.
Lynette Scavo: Great! You wanna run it by me?
Tom Scavo: No. I'm good. But, thanks.
Lynette Scavo: Okay.
Tom Scavo: Well, that's the thing. You know how whenever I pitch in the boardroom at work, how Kennesey always tears my ideas down in front of the partners?
Lynette Scavo: Yeah?
Tom Scavo: I invited the partners and their wives over so I could pitch to them here. And I thought we could make a formal dinner for six. We could sit, we could...
Lynette Scavo: And when exactly would this formal dinner take place?
Tom Scavo: Uh... day after tomorrow!
Lynette Scavo: Tom!
Tom Scavo: Yeah, I know, I know, I know, I know I know it's short notice.
Lynette Scavo: You think? How am I supposed to pull off a formal dinner with no warning?
Tom Scavo: I don't know. Bree Van de Kamp does this kind of thing all the time...

Lynette Scavo: What did you say?
Tom Scavo: Well, I'm sorry, I didn't mean it like that. That's - you know what, forget it. I'll call and I'll cancel. Don't worry about it.
Lynette Scavo: No, no. Let's, let's do it.
Tom Scavo: Really?
Lynette Scavo: Yeah, it's good for your career. I'll pull it off.

Lynette Scavo: Hey, Jordana!
Jordana Geist: Hey Lynette, how are you? You look a little tired. Is everything okay?
Lynette Scavo: Actually, I'm getting ready for a dinner party tomorrow night. Six people.
Jordana Geist: Sounds fun.
Lynette Scavo: Big fun. Say, you wouldn't have any of your kids ADD medication that you could spare just to get me over the hump?
Jordana Geist: Tina! Don't push your sister. Gosh Lynette, I'm really running low. I need all my energy I can get. My sister, Elaine, and her kids are flying in town for a week.
Lynette Scavo: Yeah, that's exciting. I wish my sister would visit more often.
Jordana Geist: Yeah, sisters are great.
Lynette Scavo: Yeah. Just three or four pills, I'm really hitting a wall here.
Jordana Geist: Yeah, the come down can be a real bitch. I wish I could help.
Lynette Scavo: I'm not going to forget about this, Jordana.
Jordana Geist: What's that supposed to mean?
Lynette Scavo: It means come Girl Scout Cookie time, don't bother bringing little Tina, because we won't be home!


"Desperate Housewives: Don't Look at Me (#2.19)" (2006)
Mrs. Pate: Yesterday afternoon, Parker offered a cookie to Cindy Lou Peeples if she would show him her vagina.
Lynette: What kind of cookie?
Mrs. Pate: What does that matter?
Lynette: Oh, it doesn't. I'm just stalling because I am completely mortified.

Karen McCluskey: Here's the big news. Parker offered me a fudgesicle if I would show him my vagina. Oh, good god, Lynette, relax. I didn't do it. I just got this out of the freezer a second ago.
Lynette: Uh, yeah. Of course, no, sorry.
Karen McCluskey: Apparently, Parker wanted to put a sunflower seed inside me and see if a baby would grow. Where do kids get this stuff?
Lynette: Oh, that was me. He was asking about the birds and the bees and I fudged a few of the details. Well, he's only seven years old. I don't think he needs to know everything yet. I don't wanna rob him of his innocence.
Karen McCluskey: Well, now, that's where you're wrong. You get 'em when they're young. Give 'em all the gory details. And then when they're good and disgusted, you shame 'em.
Lynette: Excuse me?
Karen McCluskey: You tell them sex is dirty and wrong and he shouldn't talk about it and if he does, he's going straight to hell.
Lynette: That is ridiculous.
Karen McCluskey: Spoken like a true liberal idiot.
Lynette: No, I am not going to shame my son.
Karen McCluskey: Mm, I'm telling ya, it works. It keeps people in their place, it keeps parents from being humiliated, and it keeps me from having to spend the afternoon talking about my woo-woo.

Lynette: [Parker is coloring] Sweety could you put the crayons down for a second, we need to talk. I talked to your teacher today and she told me about the cookie deal you made with Cindy Lou.
Parker Scavo: Oh, are you mad?
Lynette: [laughs uncomfortably] No, not exactly, I'm trying to understand why you did that.
Parker Scavo: [Innocently] Tommy Keenan told me babies come from down there, that doesn't sound right to me.
Lynette: Well, actually he's kinda right, he's got the concept down.
Parker Scavo: [Innocently confused] That's weird! How does a baby get in there?
Lynette: Daddy will be home from his business trip in a few days, why don't you wait for him?
Parker Scavo: OK. Or I can ask Tommy's brother. He's fourteen and he knows everything!
Lynette: [Parker looks skeptical as Lynette draws a picture] ... And then the mommy and the dadd because they love each other so much, they hug real tight, and a seed is magically implanted and nine months later a baby is born.
Parker Scavo: What kind of seed?
Lynette: Oh, that's not important.
Parker Scavo: I don't believe you!
Lynette: Parker I'm your mother. Mother's don't lie to their sons. Now go wash your hands or Santa's not gonna bring you anything for Christmas.

Lynette: I talked to Mrs. McCuskey and for God sakes Parker, you can't ask people things like that.
Parker Scavo: Why?
Lynette: [Grasping for straws] Because, it's rude.
Parker Scavo: I said please!
Lynette: That doesn't matter. You gotta quit talking to people about their bodies, and about where babies come from.
Parker Scavo: Why?
Lynette: Because it's not an appropriate subject.
Parker Scavo: Why?

Felicia Tilman: Dentures. They were my dear sister, Martha's. I'm sure none of you knew, but she had orthodontic issues from the time she was a child.
Edie: Oh. Thank you.
Felicia Tilman: I know it's an unconventional gift for an engagement party, but you and Martha were such close friends, Edie. I wanted you to have something truly personal to remember her by since she left us so abruptly. You know, when Paul Young strangled her, crushed her windpipe, and buried her alive next to a garbage-strewn hiking trail.

Bree Van De Kamp: Uh Gabby... before we learn what Edie tastes like.
Gabrielle Solis: I got it...
Bree Van De Kamp: I think a little more reverence for the dead is in order.
Lynette Scavo: Oh please we're talking about Edie. A little more irreverence is what we need.

Susan Mayer: What do you mean 'you two' were the hottest chicks on the lane?

Lynette Scavo: [the twins give Lynette 'What gives?' looks, Parker crosses his arms] Ok, ok, I know what you're thinking, but Kayla's going through a hard time right now, come and sit down. Letting her watch TV is like me letting you eat ice cream when you're sick.

Lynette Scavo: Don't give him a name, he's not gonna be around much longer.
Parker Scavo: [concerned] You're not gonna hurt him are you?
Lynette Scavo: Honey, I put up a fence and he burrowed right under it. The man at the garden center said these are crafty creatures and there's only one way to stop 'em.
Parker Scavo: So you're gonna kill him?
Lynette Scavo: Sweaty let me ask you something. If you had to choose between mommy's beautiful garden and a gross, mean, dirty possum, what would you pick?
Parker Scavo: Scruffles!
Lynette Scavo: Ok, we're done talkin' here.
[she grabs the bags from him, leaving him looking a little upset]

Tom Scavo: Ok, now you're scaring me.
Lynette Scavo: Why?

Bree: [Pause] No, he did not say.

[the twins put gum in Parker's hair, so Lynette is trying to scrape it out, the entire time he is in pain]
Lynette Scavo: Well, yeah I know it hurts, but that's what you get when you let your brothers put bubble gum in your hair, pain and misery.
Parker Scavo: Are you mad at me?
Lynette Scavo: Yes, yes, I am mad at you. And I'm also cranky. You know how you get when you haven't taken a nap? Well mommies are the same way, we need our down time and if we don't get it, we end up saying and doing things which we don't normally do. And it's frustrating for me too because I do wanna be the best mommy I can be.
Parker Scavo: I think you're the best mommy in the world!
Lynette Scavo: That's sweet of you but it's not exactly true.

[Lynette and Tom aren't talking at all at breakfast]
Parker Scavo: Are you mad at daddy?

Parker Scavo: Cause you're not talking to him.
Lynette Scavo: Well you know two people who have known each other as long as mommy and daddy ahve, they don't have to always talk, in fact a sign of a good relationship is being comfortable in silence.
Tom Scavo: That's true, although mommy ignoring me last night at work wasn't exactly what I call comfortable.
Lynette Scavo: Well daddy probably didn't notice that I was unloading twenty-pound bags of flour cause he still can't lift them, so mommy didn't exactly have time to sit around and chew the fat.
Tom Scavo: Well you haven't wanted to chew that fat for five days now. Come on Lynette something is obviously bugging you.
Lynette Scavo: You wanna know what's bugging me? I'm trying to have a lovely breakfast with my family and you're picking a fight.

Parker Scavo: Every hour counts. I miss you all day long.
Lynette Scavo: [She hugs him, kisses and rubs him on the head] Aww, honey, geez. Do you really mean that, or are you manipulating mommy into feeling incredibly guilty?

Ed Ferrara: So, the pig actually eats the bacon?
Tom Scavo: Uh, huh, yeah.
Ed Ferrara: I don't see the client doing a happy dance over the whole cannibalism theme.
Lynette Scavo: Well, Tom, why don't you pitch him the other idea you came up with last night. You know the one where people love bacon so much they want to keep it a secret.
Ed Ferrara: What like a secret underground society of bacon eaters?
Tom Scavo: More like my college fraternity, where, you know, everybody wanted in, but we only took the coolest guys.
Ed Ferrara: You were Greek?
Tom Scavo: Alpha Tau Omega.
Ed Ferrara: I was Phi Kap.
Tom Scavo: You?
Ed Ferrara: And I don't remember you having to be that cool to pledge ATO.

Parker Scavo: Hm-hmm.
Rodney Scavo: Only a little girl would be afraid to come down the ladder. Now, you're not a little girl, are you?
[Lynette looks askance at Rodney]

Bree Van De Kamp: Zach said Mary Alice killed herself because of something that he had done, something bad. Is there anyone else who'd know what he was talking about?

Lynette Scavo: Well daddy should've checked with mommy so she could have a chance to tell him why he's wrong. Hey, you're playing!
Parker Scavo: But mom, I suck! Everybody says so! That's why they made up a fake position for me!

Susan Mayer: Do you think she actually killed him?
Gabrielle Solis: Uh, yeah. Why else would she have hid the body?
Lynette Scavo: Well so far all they've charged her with is improper disposal of a corpse.

Lynette Scavo: Well that sorta depends on daddy.
