Desperate Housewives

Across Season 4: Two Lois Lanes appear together in this season: Teri Hatcher played Lois Lane in The Adventures of Lois and Clark and Dana Delaney voiced Lois Lane in Superman: The Animated Series and its follow-ups.

City on Fire - S5-E8

The person playing "Jackson" in this episode is a stand in for the entire episode, as the actor who normally plays him was unavailable for filming due to a severe motorcycle accident.

Before being cast as Katherine Mayfair, Dana Delany auditioned for the role of Bree van der Kamp and was offered the part. But after much thought she decided to turn down the role, saying it was too similar to her role in Pasadena.

"Trip", the lawyer played by Scott Bakula in series 8, is the nickname of the chief engineer Charles Tucker III in "Star Trek: Enterprise", which Bakula also appeared in.

Before being cast as Edie Britt, Nicollette Sheridan auditioned for the role of Bree van der Kamp.

Ricardo Antonio Chavira was almost replaced as Carlos Solis because the producers felt his acting was stiff in the Pilot.

Teri Hatcher (Susan), Felicity Huffman (Lynette) and Eva Longoria (Gabrielle) are the only cast members to appear in every single episode of the series.

There are only two episodes of the show not to be narrated by Brenda Strong. They are "My Husband, The Pig" (Steven Culp) and "Look Into Their Eyes and You See What They Know" (Nicollette Sheridan).

Come in, Stranger - S1-E5

Teri Hatcher cracked a rib whilst filming the scene where Susan falls on a wedding cake.

Season 3 Episode 18: Kenneth Kimmins and Teri Hatcher had both previously starred in "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman", in which Hatcher played Lois Lane and Kimmins had a recurring role as Dr. Klein, Superman's physician.

Series 3 Episode 5: During the opening scenes while Mary Alice is narrating "a cable cut just as the husband's friends arrive," Chris Walters ("Major Victory" from the Sci-Fi channel's reality show Who Wants To Be A Super Hero?) can be seen as one of the "husband's friends".

Season 3 Episode 1: At the beginning of this episode when Carolyn walks in on Orson cleaning up, and asks where Alma is, the parrot replies, "Orson no, Orson no!" This is a reference to Kyle MacLachlan's former role in the series "Twin Peaks" when during a murder investigation, a clue is given by a bird named Waldo screeching, "Leo no, Leo no!"

Series 6 Episode 10: When Lynette is in the surgery, the doctor who sees her is played by Jane Leeves, Daphne in "Frasier". Felicity Huffman had previously appeared with Leeves in eight episodes of the show.

Almost all of the series' episode titles are either a line from or the title of a Stephen Sondheim song.

Season 3 Episode 21: Although Edie's ex-husband is called "Charles McLain", his name is never mentioned in the episode.

Season 1 generally

In series 1, Richard Roundtree appears as Mr Shaw, who works for the Hafts Detective Agency. "Hafts" is an anagram of "Shaft" who was played by Roundtree in the 1971 film of the same name.

Kathryn Joosten died on 2 June 2012, twenty days after the on-screen death from cancer of her character, Karen McCluskey, on the final episode of the show.

In Episode 3.20(Gossip), during Traver's birthday party, when Gaby is talking to Lynette and Susan, you can see Edie's house. It usually has a bay window upstairs above the porch, but in this view has instead got two small sash windows in its place.

Mistakes

As Carlos is giving his speech at the barbecue, Julie sees Zach and says to Susan "Oh God". After cutting to a shot of Zach and his father it shows Julie and Susan again. If you look to the right of the shot you will see Carlos' face is just looking in front of him and not speaking, but you can still hear him giving his speech whilst he is in shot.
