Desperate Housewives (2004–2012): Season 5, Episode 6 - There's Always a Woman - full transcript

Gabrielle has a fit when one of Carlos's wealthy massage clients, Virginia Hildebrand, makes them an offer they can't refuse, but a startling discovery leaves Gabby second guessing. Meanwhile, Lynette grows suspicious that Tom is cheating on her with the sultry Anne Schilling, a promoter who wants to book Tom's new garage band for a show. One of the Scavo twins, Porter, gets grounded for getting into trouble with the law... again. Susan and Jackson break up when she wants to continue to keep their tryst casual, while he wants to move forward with their romance. Later, when Susan shows up at his house to tries to surprise him, the surprise is on her as she finds a naked woman in his shower. Elsewhere, the bond between Bree and Katherine grows, when Bree meets Orson's old college roommate, Peter, and she tries to set him up with the lonely Katherine. Also, Mrs. McCluskey enlists the help of her shady younger sister, Roberta, to dig up dirt on Dave and to find out what his plans are for the entire neighborhood, while the superficial Edie continues to be in denial to Dave's temper and the secrets he is hiding when he contradicts his life story to her.

Desperate Housewives S05E06 There's Always a Woman (Prédatrices) (VO&VF+STFR&EN)

We had an agreement
to keep things casual.

Susan made her feelings clear.

So if I was with another woman,
that wouldn't bother you?

You work here?

I'm great with food.
I understand business.

Bree made Orson a partner.

- Is she still asking you questions?
- A few.

And Dave took steps to get
Karen Mccluskey out of the way.

You think you can screw with me?

Stop doing that.

As a masseur for the
Fairview country club,

Carlos Solis had become an expert

on how to make women happy.

That's why he always
had scented candles

waiting for Sue Bridges...

New age music for Betsy Daniel...

And apple Schnapps
for Shannon Glenn.

Yes, Carlos had made
a lot of women happy

over the years.

But on one very unusual
wednesday afternoon...

He made Mrs. Virginia Hildebrand

a little happier...

than he intended.

Helen said your last
reservation just canceled.

- Do you want a ride home?
- Thanks, Clay. That'd be great.

Can I ask you something?
How long you been a masseur?

14 years.

And in all those years...

Have you ever accidentally
given a woman...

An orgasm?

Keep your voice down.
You want to get me fired?

How do you accidentally
give a woman an orgasm?

I don't know.

I can barely give my girlfriend one,
and I try

really hard.

All I did was touch her back.

Are you sure?

Some of these old broads,
their bodies drop.

Not everything's where
it's supposed to be.

I may be blind,
but my sense of touch is just fine.

Maybe she just really
liked the massage.

You wouldn't believe
the moaners I get on my table.

I'm telling you, her body was quivering
and she could barely breathe.

There's one sure-firway to find out.
Where's your tip envelope?

On the counter.

How much?

Enough for two orgasms.

Yes, Carlos Solis was an expert

on how to make women happy.

I'm about to go get groceries.
Where are your tips?

Oh, my god! How did you get so much?

And he knew the best
way to keep his wife happy...

Just... Good at my job.

Was to lie.

There are
dangerous women in this world,

Devious predators waiting to strike.

You can spot them
by the lipstick they use,

the shoes they wear

and the perfume they choose.

But the easiest
way to spot a dangerous woman

is to see how she behaves...

I am about to make you so happy.

With another woman's husband.

don't worry about the lunch specials.

I am only two blocks
away. I'll take care of it once I...

Actually, you do them.
I'm gonna be a while.

- What are you doing here?
- So funny.

I was gonna ask you the same question.
But I was gonna start with

"What the hell?"

You remember Anne, right?
Anne Schilling.

Kirby's mom.

We were room
parents together in the third grade.



What the hell?

Why don't we just show her?

It's for my band.

Anne has been
helping us find a rehearsal space.

That's right. You're a realtor.

I know what you're thinking.
It seems like a waste of money.

But I just got them to reduce the rent
and throw in the utilities.

And you're always complaining about the
noise when we practice, so...

What do you think?

It's great.

You do?


I have to be somewhere by 10:00, so,

why don't we sign a lease right now?

I was convinced that you
would think it was a dumb idea.

It's a little dumb, but,
compared to what I was thinking...

What were you thinking?

It's just...

I saw you two together...

I didn't know
that you were... And she looks so...

For god sakes, the woman has to be
somewhere. Just sign the damn lease.

Out of nowhere,
Jackson says, "let's move in together."

Of course I was stunned.

And then when I said no,
he just broke up with me.

Does he
really expect me to be in love

after just five months?
That's crazy.

I guess, although
his work on these moldings is amazing.

You really want me
to repaint these, Suzanne?

It's Susan.
And he was the first one

to say he didn't want to get serious.
Which is why I was happy.

- We were just having fun.
- Maybe you should call him.

How do you like this color?

Not so much.
Frank, how can I call him?

He's the one that ended it with me.

The guy makes you happy.

He says he loves you.

You gonna let pride stop you from
finding out where this thing could go?

Come on.

Don't be stupid.

How much am I paying you?

$14 an hour.

That's not enough.

No, ma'am, it's not.

Carlos, what are you doing home?

Virginia insisted
on giving me a ride.

You must be Gabrielle.

has told me so much about you.

I'm Virginia Hildebrand.

You are the Mrs. Hildebrand.

You're Carlos' favorite client.

Mine, anyway.

I bought this
top with that crazy tip you gave him.

Your Carlos has helped my back problems
like no masseur I have ever had.

I'm pain-free
for the first time in years.

That's Carlos for you.
Mr. Magic hands.

He hits the ol'
sweet spot every time.

I should go now,

but promise you'll
at least consider my little proposal.

What proposal?

I hate to stop when we're
making so much progress,

but I need to go to Europe
for two months, mostly London and Rome.

I'd be so grateful if Carlos were
to accompany me as my personal masseur.

Two whole months?

I told you.
It's too long, and Gaby has the girls...

I know it's a lot to ask,

which is why I'm
offering Carlos $50,000.


Per month.

Pip-pip and arrivederci!

- I'll leave you two to discuss it.
- What's to discuss?

For that kind of money, you can
lock him in a cage and feed him peanuts.

I'll see you Tomorrow, Carlos.
Lovely meeting you, Gaby.

Don't even think
about saying no to this!

She is not my only client.
I'll be letting down the rest if I go.

Mr. Banks could even fire me.

Don't worry about Mr.
Banks. I'll take care of him

And so what if he fires you?

Once Virginia tells all of her rich
lady friends about what you did for her,

they'll be lining
up around the block.


Great news.

I just got a call from my old friend,
Peter Hickey.

I don't recall ever
hearing that name before.

He's a friend from college.

He mentioned that his parents'
50th anniversary was next month,

and I convinced him to let us cater it.
Dinner for 80.

- 80?!
- He shoots, he scores!

You are amazing!

One week on the job, and he's
already bringing in huge accounts.

That's great.

Better go marinate those
scallops for the lunch Tomorrow.

Scallops? Done.


I also made the pesto mayonnaise,

and I put the individual
cobblers in their ramekins.

It looks like we're all
set until the morning then.

Why don't you take
the afternoon off?

- And do what?
- Read, relax, give yourself a pedicure.


What do you bet I take my socks off
and see Orson's already done it for me?

What are you doing?

Refrigerator needs cleaning.

No, it doesn't.

And besides, I gave you the day off.
Now go home.

I'm thinking about
moving to Maryland.

Dylan's there with her husband,
and the baby's coming soon.

Maybe it's time to go inflict
myself on them.

You can't just up and move
You have a life here.

I don't. I have a job, period.

No kids to raise,
no husband, no boyfriend.

Might as well throw in the towel and...
Go be a grandma.

You are a vibrant,
attractive woman...

Who hasn't had sex in two years.

That spells "grandma" to me.

I haven't made up my mind yet.
Just let me think about it.

And help keep me busy.

When you're done with that, the
oven could use a really good scrubbing.

Bless you.

Those must've set you back a chunk.

Yes, they did...

Not that you deserve them.

I don't blame you for being mad.

I'm not mad.

I'm furious.

What the hell were you thinking,

coming at my husband
with a baseball bat?

I know. I'm really sorry.

The doctor had me on these new meds,
and it made me loopy.

I thought Dave was
messing with my head,

and all the time,
it was the damn pills.

I hope you stopped taking them.

You bet.

I had to get my marbles back.

I know you just got here,
but I am so sleepy and...

Of course.
I'll see you when you get home.

Actually, I'm gonna call my sister and
see if I can stay with her for a while.

I don't think I should
be on my own just yet.

Then I'll see you whenever.

Be sure and tell
Dave how sorry I am.

He will be so glad.

He's really fond of you, you know.

Hey, sis. It's Karen.

Do me a favor and get your sorry ass
over to Fairview memorial hospital ASAP.

I need you, big time, kido.

Come in.

Hi. I'm looking for Orson Hodge.
I'm Peter Hickey.

Yes, of course. I'm his wife Bree.

I'm afraid he's out running errands,
but he's told me all about you.

He said you were
roommates back in college.

Yes, we were.

Have a seat.

My parents' 50th
anniversary is coming up,

and I thought I'd surprise
them with a family reunion.

What a thoughtful son you are.


have you given any
thought to the venue?

Yes, I have a summer
place up in Lake Pleasant.

Pretty sure the terrace
fits eight tables of ten.

That's a nice little terrace.

We will throw you a party so special

that you'll want us to
cater your anniversary, too.

Actually, I'm not married.

Let's talk about food.

With a new client, what I
usually do is discuss possible menus,

and then I have my very best chef

prepare a sample dinner.

"Sample dinner"?

We don't do sample dinners.

But this is Orson's
college roommate.

And... He's quite the catch!

Wait a minute. Is this a setup?
Because I loathe blind dates.

That's what's so great about it.
Technically, it's a business dinner.

It has all the potential
upside of a date

while still being tax-deductible.

Fine. I will cook for the man.

But I am not going
to get dressed up,

I'm not going to put on makeup,
and I am not going to flirt.

He came while Orson was out.

I let him record
a message on my phone.

Orson, sorry I missed you buddy,

catch you next time, okay?

You realize you could've just led with
this and saved us this whole discussion?

Jeez, Roberta!

Put that damn thing out.
You're not in a corner saloon.

Then how come there's
bourbon in my coffee?

Do I have to call a nurse?

Fine. I drove 80 miles to see you.

You better be dying,
or you're gonna pay for my gas.

I'm not dying, but there's
someone who sure wishes I was.

Son of a bitch landed me in here.

You tell me where to find him.
I'll clean his damn clock.

No, we've got to be careful
with this guy. He's dangerous.

That's what you said
about that biker in Florida

who now has to puree all his food.

Nearly forgot about him.

That was a fun vacation.

What do you need me to do?

Let me come stay with
you when I get outta here.

This guy thinks I'm out of commission,
and I want to keep it that way.

And you can help me do some digging.

You still work for
that cell phone company?

Teleshore. Yes, god help me.


Pull his records and see what turns up.
The name is Dave williams.

- How do you know he's with Teleshore?
- I went through his mail.

You remind me of mom.

What else you need?

Could you smuggle
me in a cold Brewski?

No one knows you like family.

Jackson? It's me.

That'll work.

Are you ok?

I think so.


Who the hell are you?


- Who the hell are you?
- Susan.

Jackson's girlfriend.

He never said anything about a
girlfriend when we hooked up in the club.

When guys go slut hunting,

they tend not to play
the girlfriend card.

You just call me a slut?

You met the guy in night, then you're
in a shower. I'm just doing the math.

Got the pizza.


We break up, and 15 minutes
later you're with someone else?

You got over me fast.

- I'm surprised it took 15 minutes.
- Stay out of this.

Why are you here?

I wanted to talk about our future.

You said you didn't want a future.

I was starting to change my mind,

and then I show up and find

5 feet of lip gloss in the shower.

I brought hot wings.
You're not getting any.

What's that for?

I was gonna use it to wash
down a bottle of sleeping pills

the next time your husband's "band"
defiled another rock classic.

But since you got them a rehearsal space,
I thought we could share it over ice.

Come on in.

We're taking off. Remember,
I'm spending the night at Kirby's house.

Right. And,
Kirby, tell your mom thanks.

That place she found
is already paying off.

She said she was there yesterday
and said it was looking pretty cool.

She was there? Why?

She was just dropping off
some old furniture for Mr. Scavo,

a couple chairs, lamp, futon.

See you Tomorrow.

Drive safely.

- Neat or rocks?
- Rocks.

Why does Tom need a
bed in his rehearsal space?

Not a bed, a futon, like a couch.

- That folds out to a bed.
- What are you saying?

If it's just a couch,
why didn't Tom tell you about it

How do you know he didn't?

I don't. Did he?

Good for you.

For not worrying about
your husband's bachelor pad.

You are not the teeniest bit paranoid,
and I say brava.

Why aren't we drinking?

Not bad!
We were really cookin' there.

Tom, you got any beer in the fridge?

I got nothing but
beer in the fridge.

Everyone, go grab a cold one.
You earned it. You sounded great.

Do we blow.

Not you, though.

You got the heart
of a real blues guy.

That's what five years
in prison'll do to ya.

I heard about that.


- It's fun, isn't it?
- Highlight of my week.

You know,

maybe we should bump
up our rehearsal schedule,

to start working the kinks out.

Twice a week's about
all I can handle.

What are you doing that's
more important than this?

Let's see. My job, my son.

Also, I just... Met this woman.

Dude, not blowing us off for a girl.

I just started seeing her.
It's kind of important for the whole

"getting back on the horse" thing.

What about saturday afternoon?

Come on, man. We gotta do this.


You're putting a lot of time and effort
into a neighborhood garage band.

Why is it such a big deal to you?

It's not.

I'm just having a real good time.

Boys! What do you say?

We gonna drink beer or
we gonna play some rock 'n' roll?

Tom, where are you?

We just really got
into a groove at rehearsal,

and I think we're gonna
play for a couple more hours.

I just wanna say don't wait up for me.
I'll see you in the morning, okay?

Oh, my god.

You said you were rehearsing.

I know.

The guys left,
and I just figured I'd...

Hang out for a little bit.

Why can't you do that at home?

What the hell is this?

You moving out on me?

Why would I move out?

So you can have your affair.

The one that follows the sports car

and the garage band

and wanting to quit your job,

the final stage of
your midlife crisis.

And then...

When I hear Anne Schilling
has been dropping by...

She had a bunch of old
crappy furniture in her garage.

I bought it for 50 bucks.
You don't really think that...

These past few months, when we've been
fighting about the car and the road trip,

Part of me thought that you
were just complaining to complain,

trying to ruin my fun.

But if it's affecting you like this,

if it's making you actually think
that I would hurt you in that way,

I'm done with all of this.

So you'll come home?

Of course.

Let me just square all this stuff away.
And then I will see you there.


Maybe when you come home, you could
teach me how to play that video game.

That'd be great.

- Is Mr. Banks around?
- He's not back from lunch yet. What's up?

I need to sweet-talk him
into giving Carlos two months off.

- You two going away somewhere?
- No, just Carlos.

Mrs. Hildebrand is taking him to Europe
as her personal massage therapist.

Personal massage therapist?

Paying him a fortune.

But he's worth it.
What he's done for that woman,

no one else has been able to do.


He told you about that?

They both did.
You should have seen the woman,

looking at Carlos,
gushing like crazy.

And you're okay with
them going away together?

Why should I be jealous?
The woman's, like, 60.

If she gets off on Carlos'
magical touch, what do I care?

You're broad-minded.
If my girlfriend knew

that my massages were
giving a woman orgasms,

no matter how old she was...

Nobody used the "o" word.

He didn't mention that?

- He's giving her orgasms?!
- Not deliberately!

He swears he's only been
doing his standard massage.

I bet he does! Where is he?

Where is he? Is she here now?

She prefers her place,
so she's been sending a car for him.

Where? Where does she live?

It's that big house
on the corner of Lake and Pinehurst.

I'm sorry.
Is there anything I can do?

When the time comes,
an alibi would be nice.

We need to talk.

Sorry, bad time.
I have the mailman upstairs in my tub.

You know what?

You have no right to be mad at me.

I don't?

I try to commit to you,
and you push me away.

I try to move on, and I'm a shallow
jerk. What the hell are you doing?

I have been married twice,

and both times that's imploded,

so really, I feel like...

Love is not my friend.

I wish that I could say
it was just rotten luck, but...

I just am thinking that...

I can't do this.

You can't?

I never even had a real girlfriend
before I met you. I didn't want one.

And the first time I try to commit,
I get smacked.

I don't even know
where we are anymore.

We really messed this up, didn't we?

Pretty much.

We just have so much baggage.

I wish we could start over.

Can we start over?

Is Susan Mayer there?

May I ask who's calling?

This is Jackson... Braddock.

We met once. I don't know if
you remember me. I have brown hair.

I think I remember you.

I thought we really clicked,
so I was wondering

if you might wanna
have dinner with me.



I know this great mexican...

French place.

Sounds great.

Pick me up at 7:00.


Where do you live?

May I help you? Excuse me.

I am gabrielle Solis.

Perhaps you know my husband?

He "rubs" your boss.

Where are they?

I am under strict instructions
not to disturb Mrs. Hildebrand.

You can wait here.


When the cops bust up this brothel,
I'm gonna tell them you're the madame.

That's it, right there.

You sure this isn't too rough?

No way.

Go deeper. I can take it.

Hold on.

I've got a crick...

I just remembered I had an
important business call to make.

Could you give me
the room for a minute?


Mrs. Solis, what are you doing here?

I know what you've been up to,
and shame on you.

- What are you talking about?
- I know about The big "o."

Dear. He could tell?

I'm beyond mortified.

I understand your concern,

but I assure you it
was only that one time.

- It's never happened again.
- And it never will,

because if you think I'm gonna let you
drag Carlos off to Europe, you're nuts.

I suppose I should be flattered that
a woman as young and beautiful as you

should see me as a threat.

But it would be a shame
to let it end a friendship

that's come to mean so much to me.

Maybe a little too much.

My husband's gone.
I'm estranged from my family.

If you live with loneliness long enough,
it becomes an ache inside you,

an actual physical pain.

I thought I'd live with
that pain the rest of my life.

Then your husband healed me.

Can you blame me for being grateful?

No, but I just think
we should end things

before they get any weirder.

Carlos tells me you
used to be a fashion model.

I've always had
a passion for clothes.

I'm going to Europe is to see the
couture collections in Paris and Milan.

Lucky you.

It's not so much fun going alone.

But if I had a knowledgeable
companion like you

to be my guide...

In fact,
you could be my personal shopper.

That is,

if you don't mind
being paid in dresses.


A hell of a sweet offer,

But I've... Got the girls, and...

We'll bring them along.

Think what fun we'll
have dressing them up.

What the hell? You're never
too young to see Paris, right?

I'm so glad!

I can see we're going
to be great friends.

I'm done with my call.

Hey, hon. Check this out.

If it's the cat eating spaghetti,
I've already seen it.

It's our band logo.

We're thinking of
getting t-shirts made up.

"Blue odyssey",
who came up with that?

This was the name of my brother's band
when he was in high school.

You have a brother?

Had. He died.

You never told me about him.

What happened?

His name was Steve.

He was a great guy...

Just kinda got caught up
in drugs and couldn't get out.

He went to prison,
and when he was there,

he was killed... By another inmate.

What happened to
the guy who killed him?

The court ruled it self-defense,

so the guy finished his time,
and he got out.

I can't believe you've
never told me about him.

It might help you to
talk about stuff like that.

I have my own way
of dealing with it.

Sorry I'm late.

That rehearsal was awesome.

They're letting me sing lead vocal
on "Hotel California."

That's nice.

Was there a blue convertible
parked in front of Katherine's?

Yes. Nice one.

- My god, he's still there.
- Who's still there?

Kat's been lonely,
so I set her up with a client,

and he's been there for over four hours,
so you know it's going well!

Good for you!
My clever little matchmaker.

You deserve some credit, too.
You brought us Peter's business.

- Peter Hickey?
- Yes.

- You set him up with Katherine?
- Is that bad?

- Potentially.
- Is he gay?

I knew he had too
much product in his hair.

It's just that when I
booked the anniversary party,

I didn't want you
to be uncomfortable,

so I said we'd met in college,
which is not actually the case.

- Where did you meet?
- Prison.

Peter's a felon?

But he's so refined, so handsome.

Two qualities that did
not serve him well behind bars.

What kind of criminal is he?
A killer or a rapist?

Nothing like that.

They got him for organ trafficking.

- What?!
- He was a surgeon,

and it seems that when
the opportunity presented itself,

he'd harvest the odd liver or kidney
from a deceased patient

and then sell it
on the black market.

Are you telling me that I set Katherine
up with a convicted graverobber?!

You said yourself
women over 40 can only be so choosy.

That is not funny!
I have to go warn Katherine.

Is everything all right over there?

Yes, everything's fine.

Then why are you whispering?

Peter just fell asleep.
I don't want to wake him.

Oh, my god.

You slept with him?

You can wag
that finger all you like.

I've got just six words for you,
Bree Hodge...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I just really wish you'd
taken things more slowly.

You have given me the most magical
night I've had since I don't know when.

Are you gonna make
me feel bad about it now?

No, I'm not.

He is just so wonderful.

I tell you, if I'm not careful,
this guy could steal my heart.

If he tries,
just promise you'll call.

Sorry I'm late.

I was sleeping so soundly.

Peter didn't want to wake me.

What's this?

A cosmopolitan.
That's your favorite, isn't it?

It's 10:00 AM, I don't want a drink.

You will.

But... These homeless
people whose kidneys he bought,

he at least paid them well, right?

I am so, so sorry.

It's not your fault.
You didn't know.

I have no one but myself to blame.

That's it. I'm going to Maryland.

You can't just move
because of one bad date.

You don't get it.

When we started this,
you were just as lonely as I was.

Orson in jail, Benjy gone.

And I felt bad for you, but, was it
nice to have somebody in the same boat.

And then Orson got out,
and now he's here all the time.

I feel like you're this...

Fun, happy power couple,

And I'm just this needy,
pathetic idiot...

Who hops into bed with the first

pancreas thief who kisses her.

I should be with family.

And I'm not family?

All my life, I wanted a sister.

And now I feel like
I finally have one.

But we're always fighting
and competing with each other.

What could be more
sisterly than that?

I know I'm not the most...

Demonstrative, person.

But I care about you deeply,
and if you were to just,

walk out of my life,
I would be very...

Very unhappy.

I wouldn't want that.


Now that that's settled,
let's make some pies.

Can I have another cosmo?

Is Porter still at Kirby's?

What's wrong with you?
You've been antsy all night.

Nothing. I'm fine.

I know what it is. I have had this nagging
feeling that I've forgotten something,

and then I just realized I think
I left the freezer door at scavo's open.

- You sure?
- No.

That's why it's
gonna drive me crazy.

I better go down there and check.

Hurry back.

I'm so glad you
were able to get away.

I didn't think you'd make it.

I'm glad my parents still think
I'm young enough for sleepovers.

Crap! It's my dad!

I was just...

I know what you were "just."

When I found this, I thought, great!

One of the guys in the
band is having an affair.

And then it hit me.

Porter has a key.

Where is she?


Don't. She isn't wearing anything.

Who is she?

Just some girl from english class.
You don't know her.

I'm gonna go in the bathroom. You
got 60 seconds to get her out of here.

Look at you all dressed up.

I was kind of on a date.

How did it go?

Pretty bad.

she just grilled me all through dinner:

What do I think about this?
What would I do if that?

I barely even know her.
I felt like I was on trial for my life.

I'm sorry.

I wanted somebody nice
to have a cup of coffee with.

I guess that's too much to ask.

It's kinda late for coffee, but...

I do have lemonade.

I'd settle for lemonade.

I know it seems like
I am being hard on you,

but like I told you before,

I don't think
that you're emotionally ready for sex.

I know what you said.

Just making sure you heard me.

Now go to bed.

It's late.

Want me to,
put the car cover on for you first?

Sure. Thanks.

You shouldn't be here.
Someone might recognize your car.

Is everything okay?

My dad doesn't suspect anything.

I'm sorry if I got
you in any trouble.

It's okay.

You're worth it.

There are dangerous
women in this world.

Some are lovers,

blind to the consequences
of their actions.

Some are wives enraged
by the betrayal

of those they trusted.

Others are predators,

deviously setting traps
to get what they want.

If you're unlucky
enough to come upon

one of these dangerous creatures,

The safest thing to do...

I pulled those
records you asked for.

Looks like your Mr.
Williams is keeping a little secret.

Is run the other way.
