Did You Know?


The on-screen credit for Marcia Cross during the opening credits was mistakenly omitted for the original airing of this episode. As a part of the main cast, on-screen credit is according to contract obligated to be present, regardless if the actor is present in the actual episode or not, thus, although by mistake, this error was a breach of Marcia Cross's contract by the production company. The credit has been re-inserted during re-editing of the episode for the DVD-release and subsequent syndication, in between Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria. See more »


Mary Alice Young: [VOICE OVER] At 5:15 Edie called to tell the girls her husband came home. She never got through to anyone though. Gaby didn't pick up because she was watching the girls take their orders. Lynette was out with Stella laughing and sharing stories and enjoying it. Bree was outside showing her future son-in-law color samples for the house and smiling politely when they disagreed. And Susan didn't answer because she was enjoying a cup of tea and what it was like to be alone.

Unlike the previous episode,"Connect! Connect!" provide us unexpected connections among characters that were seen before both in the fifth season and the previous ones.

In it,we get to see Susan and Edie are forced to spend time together alone after they both accidentally locked themselves in the basement.They talked to each other about their childhood and their respective fathers.I think that is was wonderful to see both characters together sharing some funny as well as touching scenes.

As for other story lines,Bree feels uncomfortable when Alex is trying to emasculate her husband.The barbecue scene was funny and the scene where they were bonding was rather emotional and well written.

Meanwhile,Gabrielle is asking her husband Carlos for help when her children got out of control.It just feels somewhat funny considering that the kids love Carlos a lot more in spite of shouting to them a lot which made Gabrielle somewhat uncomfortable.

Finally,Lynette unexpectedly met her mother,Stella while busy searching for her son,Porter.This provided lots of drama and emotion considering that they aren't really that close and have a lot of issues between them.

Overall,it was a good episode particularly with the connections I have mentioned previously.Also,the drama and humor in it were not disappointing.
