Gabrielle: I feel a wave of morning sickness coming on, and I want to be standing on your mother's grave when it hits.
When Lynette and Tom are talking, Tom says "Really I got the job?" and puts down the newspaper he was just reading. In the next shot we see Lynette and you can see Tom is still holding the paper and puts it down again. See more...

Desperate Housewives (2004) - 10 questions
The "questions" section is for any random questions that occurred to you while watching this film, or anything you didn't entirely understand, and which Google or the IMDb can't help with. Submit them as a question, and hopefully someone will answer (the bold comments in brackets) - check back regularly. If the answer is wrong, or missing information, please use the "clarify answer" option. Don't feel limited - want to know what music played in a certain scene? Whether this was the first film to use a certain effect? Here's the place to ask!
Across whole show
Question: What are Betty Applewhite and her son holding Caleb prisoner in their house and why won't they allow him to be incarcerated?
Answer: The clues so far point to the fact that Caleb was accused of killing a teenaged girl. Betty could be hiding him because she knows that he will not be treated fairly or properly because of his learning disability. The exact reasons will most likely be revealed as the season progresses.
Question: What are the numbers for the Wisteria Lane houses, and who lives in which?
Answer: 4349: Gabby Solis (was also in the Jimmy Stewart film "Harvey"). 4353: Susan Mayer (was also in The Hardy Boys and Deep Impact). 4355: Lynette Scavo (was also in Bedtime for Bonzo). 4350: Martha Huber. 4352: Mary Alice Young (also in Leave it to Beaver). 4354: Bree Van DeCamp (also in The 'Burbs and Providence). 4356: Mike Delfino.
Question: Before Nora dies, was there ever actually any chance at all that Tom and Lynette would get full custody of Kayla? I mean, she hasn't exactly known them for a very long time, and there was nothing suggesting Nora didn't take good care of her.
Answer: Full custody was always going to be a stretch simply because Nora was the mother and generally courts favour mothers except in certain conditions. Perhaps the only thing that might have given them full custody was the fact that Nora was moving Kayla with her to Mexico and because that would hamper Tom's visitations. However as you have stated there really wasn't much to suggest they could get full custody.
Question: I am watching a re-run of Desperate Housewives (not sure of which season) And I see that Edie has a son (Trevor) I did not know that. Here's my question(s) . Where was he this whole time? Who is his father? How did he come to live with Edie? And I don't see him on the current shows so Where is he now? Thanks.
Answer: Her son is Travers - they've mentioned in previous seasons that she had a son but you never seen him until now. he was staying with Edie because his father had to go out of the country for four weeks with "doctors without borders". Edie knew she couldn't give him the life he deserved and she never really wanted kids so she gave full custody to his dad. he's not in the current seasons because his dad's four week tour ended.
