Gabrielle and Carlos are surprised when their temporarily custody-awarded adoptive baby Lily's biological teenage father, quarterback Dale Helms, turns up and wants to lay claims to his infant daughter, inspired by his elder brother Frank Helm, the mother's cuckolded fiancé. The Solis want Dale to sign away his rights, but the dumb jock doesn't seem to see it their way, until a little intimidation from Gabrielle in his high-school makes him do just that. But on the other front, Edie is heartbroken after Karl breaks off their engagement, and has him followed by P.I. Oliver Weston. Susan becomes very worried that Edie might find out about hers and Karl's fling. This leads to Edie going out drinking with Susan where she gets so drunk that she attacks a waitress. When Lynette's boss, Ed, has her work late to forget his marital problems, intimate e-mails get crosses; she tries to coach his on-line love-life back to health, but it backfires badly with Tom getting blamed for their lies.

At least you and Tom have a love life.
Well, we do the best we can. Given the circumstances.
Better than Fran and I. We're dead in that apartment. Ah, I don't wanna bore you with the details.
I appreciate that. You know, Ed. I don't want to pry into your personal business, but if you are having problems in that area, you don't have to be resigned to it.
What are you suggesting, hookers? No, Ed Ferrara doesn't pay for sex.
