Parker Scavo: How long will daddy be gone?
Lynette Scavo: Well that sorta depends on daddy.
Porter Scavo: Are you two mad at each other?
Lynette Scavo: Yeah, a little, but that's okay. We still love each other very much, but like kids, sometimes grown-ups throw tantrums and need a time-out.
Preston Scavo: Why can't he take a time-out in his room?
Lynette Scavo: Cause he decided to take it in his pizza place.

The Third Season Episodes Become Funnier
8 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sweetheart, I Have to Confess is the episode that features Susan trying to relate her true feelings for Ian.As she does this,we get to witness Gabrielle and Carlos make an effort to rekindle their romantic feelings towards each other after their divorce and separation.Added to that,we get to see Lynette still bothered that Nora is making a move towards her husband after Tom buys a restaurant.Finally,we get to see Bree gets confronted with the issue of the past action of her new husband,Orson particularly with the suspicion of murder.

This episode provides more laughter especially with the jealousy that Lynette is feeling towards Nora since it got to a point that she was trying to kill her in front of her daughter.Also,it was funny too to see Edie trying to have sexual relations with Mike at the hospital and Susan catches them.The anger that both women felt with one another was a funny scene that is comparable to that between Lynette and Nora.Aside from that,the rekindling of romance between Carlos and Gaby would definitely elicit laughter as both aren't interested with each other but with each other's finances especially Carlos,who as a $2 million job on his hand.As for Bree,we get to see her once again in a relationship with a sociopath as she learns more about her new husband? Is there something new to that considering that she always ends up with a nut case? LOL
