Trivia

Lynette's husband is pitching a sale on how to advertise a product to his clients and they are not very interested in his idea. Lynette suggests advertising on dry-cleaning bags because "they sit in your closet for months and are constant advertising". The clients loved her idea. To promote this show, ABC did just this, putting the slogan "Everyone has a little dirty laundry" on thousands of bags. See more »

Goofs

When Bree sees the presents that Rex has bought for the children, she walks up to the car. As she stops walking you can see her hair particularly on her left side is being blown gently by the wind and continues to be blown through most of the shot. In the following shot her hair is now sitting perfectly without any wind blowing it. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Mary Alice: Competition. It means different things to different people. In suburbia, it means keeping up with the Joneses. On Wisteria Lane, that means keeping up with Bree Van De Kamp. Everyone knew Bree had the nicest lawn in the neighborhood, and no one begrudged her this. No one, that is, except Martha Hoover, whose own lawn paled in comparison. No matter how carefully she trimmed, or how lovingly she watered, or how generously she fertilized, the grass was always greener on the other side...

Bree's Disappointment
23 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Susan is miffed when Mike's unexpected - and very sexy - house guest Kendra forces him to postpone their first official "date." Susan and Edie decide to follow him and Kendra on their night out together. Lynette becomes steadily more dependent on the twins' ADD medication. Gabrielle becomes jealous of the "other" woman, Danielle Van De Kamp in John's life. Meanwhile, Bree's kids mutiny when they learn their dad has moved out. Tom is not happy when Lynette tries to take over his concept of new "Spotless Scrubs" to his clients.

A man has a heart attack while jogging and lands on Mrs. Huber's lawn, but she dumps him on Bree's lawn so that she'll call the paramedics and they will ruin her lawn instead of hers. Andrew gets into a serious car accident that puts Mama Solis in the hospital, right after she finally busts Gabrielle and John having their affair in Carlos' house. Bree and Rex are called to Andrew's school after he shoves a kid into a locker. Bree learns Rex is serving her with divorce papers. Lastly, the enigmatic Mr. Shaw comes closer to solving one of Wisteria Lane's big mysteries.

All of these events happen in Anything You Can Do.One can definitely feel for Bree considering that her husband divorces her and what's worse,her children wants to stay with her husband.Any mother would really find that extremely difficult.Aside from that,we get to see how Gabi realize how her husband would feel considering that John has a girlfriend of his own.This only adds to her disappointment considering that she finds herself in a peculiar situation.Also,we get to see Lynette's disappointment with her children.Finally,there is some humor in it with Edie and Susan,both of whom followed Mike's guest.Truly great combination of drama and comedy.
