Xiao-Mei would never be able to be a surrogate without having a child of her own first. All reputable surrogacy agencies in the US require their surrogates to have had at least one full-term, live birth before becoming a surrogate. See more »
[Bree has told Dr. Goldfine that she's going to ignore all her problems with Rex and stay with him]
Bree, how does this reconciliation have a chance if the two of you can't be honest about the innermost parts of your lives?
We're, um, WASPs, Dr. Goldfine. Not acknowledging the elephant in the room is what we do best.
You'd settle for that - a life filled with repression and denial?
And dinner parties. Don't forget the dinner parties.

All I can say about this show is: You gotta love the dirty laundry!
At first when I saw the pilots, it was like: What the heck? Are they serious that they were going to make a show about a bunch of shallow people living on a street having sex and complaining about not having enough sex? But at the end, I was wrong.
This is a show about misunderstood and troubled people who really cares about each other and shows it. They are human and they hurt people like everyday-people do. I love this show and it is so humane and the characters are so likable in every single way.
The desperate housewives are portrayed by Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman, and Eva Longoria. As much I hate the character Gabrielle, I have to say, I have to love Eva Logoria's charm because she is delightful to watch as a person in interviews. I love the character Bree. She is so stunning to watch as this perfectionist with a family that is nothing but 'perfect.' Felicity Huffman plays the real everyday-mom who's stressed - Lynette, who's also an great character. There's Teri Hatcher's character, Susan, which I liked at first but she gets boring but she does have a great cheerleader, her daughter Julie, who is probably much more likable than her.
And there's Edie Britt ... the 'slut' of the neighborhood. I hated her at first, but then, slowly, loved her.
What makes this show so creative is that it is narrated by a housewife that committed suicide on episode one. It is an extremely nice turn in television.
This is my favorite show ... next to Lost. ABC is doing very well this season.
