Mary Alice Voiceover:Family dinner. There was a time when that phrase meant something on Wisteria Lane.Of course, this was back when meals were lovingly prepared…by wives who loved to cook…for children who remembered their manners. But family dinners, like the times, had changed, and there was only one house in the neighborhood where dinner remained a family occasion…and attendance was not optional.
Orson:I don’t know when I’ve tasted such tender spring lamb.
Bree:Thank you, dear. Danielle, you haven’t touched your dinner.
Andrew:She doesn’t like spring lamb. She prefers old goat.
Danielle:I’m glad you guys think it’s so funny that my life is over.
Orson:Your mother was right to end that relationship. The man was your teacher and married.
Danielle:He’s getting a divorce.
Orson:Well, that hardly bolsters his suitability. Danielle, please, eat something.
Bree: Don’t worry, dear. Hunger strikes demand self-control, and as we’ve seen, that’s hardly her strong suit.
Danielle:When are you gonna take me seriously?
Bree:When you start acting like an adult.
Andrew:Well, she sleeps with them. That’s a start.
Danielle:I hate you! I hate all of you!
Bree:Remind me to buy paper plates. We’ll need them till a certain someone can be trusted with china again.
