"Renee and Ben, your wedding is one of the best days of your life, because it's the day you realise:"I finally have the thing I need to be happy". And then you forget. So, then, what happens is, instead of waking up every morning and shouting:"Somebody loves me!", you start looking around and thinking:"What do I want now? What's the next thing I need to be happy?". So you look and you look and you keep thinking you've found it, but nothing works, and the reason that nothing works, is because that hole in your heart that you're trying to fill, is already filled. You just forgot. Don't, ever forget, always remember how much you wanted to be loved and how much you ARE loved. And I think if you can do that - and it isn't easy - you'll stop looking and realise, you already are happy. To Renee and Ben, and to remembering!"
I'm Silvia, I'm 16, from Italy and Desperate Housewives is my favourite show ever; it makes me laugh a lot and also cry (especially the last season). I've loved it from the very first scene but I discovered it quite recently: I started watching it more or less a year ago and saw each and every episode. I used to watch it almost every day and it really became a sort of drug!
It is the only show that makes me laugh so hard and has also taught me so many things. Every time I think about it I can't help smiling and feeling happy. For me it isn't just a show, it's a way of living, thinking and solving problems (it really works by the way!!!). It is the thing I think of when I'm sad, tired, desperate, and every time it helps me putting the pieces back together, sometimes thanks to Katherine deceiving smile or Gaby's way of solving problems or Lynette's desperation or even Susan's funny moments, it helps. That's why I owe so much to this show, from the moment it entered into my routine, it made my life better.
That's why I love them
Lynette and Tom
Katherine and Bree
My favorite quotes
Bree: The photographer's asking if he can get shots of the two of us.
Katherine:Wait. I need to talk to you first.
Bree: [Chuckles] I misunderstood the situation, that's all. Can we just leave it at that?
Katherine: No, we can't. And do you know why? Because I thought things were going well. I was having fun with you. Obviously... *I* misunderstood. So tell me, was there a straw that broke the camel's back? Or were you planning on killing me all along?
Bree: Here's the thing you need to understand about me and my friends. We each have our niche. Gabrielle's the glamorous one, Susan's the adorable one, Lynette's smart, Edie's... Edie, and I am the domestic one, the organizer, the one that knows that there are three tines on a dessert fork. I'm the one who gets teased for that. That's who *I* am. And that's also who you are.
Bree: So... I don't really know HOW to be friends with you.
Katherine: That's a shame, because I understand you better than all those other women do. I know how following the rules and all observing those little graces make you feel like you're in control. We've both had days where it was either set a beautiful table or curl up in a ball and die.
[Tears welling in her eyes]
Katherine: We're the SAME, Bree. And if you think that means we can't be friends, then I'm sorry. But it might also mean we could be BEST friends.
Edie: Maybe we should take a break, you know, see other people. Mike: You're telling me this on a day when I'm put in a man's prison?
Edie: Well I said the timing was bad.
Lynette: My favorite game is counting all the things I'm dying to say to you, but I don't! Like... "pipe down, you annoying nutjob!" I could NEVER say that.
Mary Alice: Trust is a fragile thing. Once earned, it affords us tremendous freedom. But once trust is lost, it can be impossible to recover. Of course the truth is, we never know who we can trust. Those we're closest to can betray us, and total strangers can come to our rescue. In the end, most people decide to trust only themselves. It really is the simplest way to keep from getting burned.
Gabrielle: I don't even know who to be angry at.
Father Crowley:Don't be angry, be thankful, children are a gift.
Gabrielle: I don't have time for this crap.
Gabrielle: The only person more self-centred than me is Carlos, he's so self-centred he doesn't even know how self-centred I am.
Danielle: Why can't we ever have normal soups? Like French Onion, or Navy Bean?
Bree: Well, Danielle, your father is deathly allergic to onions, and I won't even dignify your *navy bean* suggestion with a response.
Rex: So, these "tennis lessons" we're taking, how are we doing?
Bree: My backhand is improving greatly, but you're still having problems with your serve.
[Bree has told Dr. Goldfine that she's going to ignore all her problems with Rex and stay with him]
Dr. Goldfine: Bree, how does this reconciliation have a chance if the two of you can't be honest about the innermost parts of your lives?
Bree: We're, um, WASPs, Dr. Goldfine. Not acknowledging the elephant in the room is what we do best.
Dr. Goldfine: You'd settle for that - a life filled with repression and denial?
Bree: And dinner parties. Don't forget the dinner parties.
Rex: Look at you... going out?
Bree: Not that it's any of your business, but I have a date.
Rex: A date... what kind of date?
Bree: Rex, I don't want to say anything that might upset you. The doctor said any more stress could cause another heart attack.
Bree: It's a romantic date with a single, attractive man and I intend to french the hell out of him.
George Williams: Well... I'll see you, Dr. Van De Kamp.
Rex: Please, you're dating my wife. Call me Rex.
[Rex has asked for a divorce in a family restaurant]
Rex: Are we gonna talk about what I said?
Bree: If you think I'm gonna discuss the dissolution of my marriage in a place where the restrooms are labeled Chicks and Dudes, you are out of your mind.
Bree: Girls, you don't understand. This poor kid is scared out of his mind.
Gabrielle: Oh, for God's sake, Bree. You're a woman. Manipulate him. That's what we do.
Bree: But how?
Gabrielle: I don't know. How did you usually manipulate Rex?
[Bree thinks about it, and smiles]
Tom: I love you because you did the right thing, and I admire your bravery.
Lynette:And I love you because you find ways to compliment me when you could just say, "I told you so."
[They kiss, then Tom says something in sign language]
Lynette: You just signed "I told you so", didn't you?
Tom: You'll never prove it.
Gabrielle: "Do you know how bored I was today? I came this close to actually cleaning the house."
Carl: "The heart wants what it wants."
Susan: "Well, my heart wants to hurt you, but I can control myself!"
Yao Lin: "I hate lying."Gabrielle: "Yeah, well, I hate your ironing, so there."
