Desperate Housewives

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Mary Alice commits suicide at the start of the episode, she shoots herself in the right side of her head, but when Martha looks through the window and sees Mary Alice dead, she is lying on the floor and blood is coming out of the left side of her head.

Correction: So the bullet entered the right side and exited the left side.

There Won't Be Trumpets - S1-E17

Corrected entry: When Bree and Lynette are walking to Juanita's funeral, Bree says "You have to hand it to Gabi and Carlos. They do grief better than anyone." However, her mouth doesn't say Gabi and Carlos. This is because they originally said "You have to hand it to Catholics. They do grief better than anyone." But due to the death of the pope it was dubbed.

Correction: I do believe this only happens in some versions of it - maybe certain places/times that it was aired. The version I have, she still says "the Catholics".

There Won't Be Trumpets - S1-E17

Corrected entry: In episode 1-17: "There Won't Be Trumpets," Bree and Lynette are walking to Juanita's funeral. Bree says, "You have to hand it to Gabi and Carlos. They do grief better than anyone." However, her mouth doesn't say "Gabi and Carlos," but rather a shorter word, and the audio has a noticeable change at that point. Also, the closed captioning just says "them" at that point. It seems that the line was changed in post-production with an overdub.


Correction: Bree says "You have to hand it to the Catholics." The line exists in this form on the DVD, and was aired in the original form in Europe. Likely it was only changed for the original broadcast, possibly due to the Pope dying around the same time.

Every Day a Little Death - S1-E12

Corrected entry: Lynette's children are at home during the poker game, which we later learn takes place every week on Tuesday at lunch. So the three school-age children should be at school. Even if there's a good reason for one school to have a day off, the twins are at a different school from their brother, and the two schools coincidentally having the same random day off is so unlikely as to be impossible, unless commented on in the script.


Correction: It is not impossible for the two schools to have the same day off. It could either be early dismissal for parent-teacher conferences, or a teachers in service day, which coincide for the whole district because of the bussing system. It could even be spring break.

Love Is in the Air (a.k.a. What I Did for Love) - S1-E14

Corrected entry: Remember in the earlier episodes where Paul destroys the pool to retrieve the toy chest? Since the pool is now destroyed and barely fixable, how did Zach have the pool party? And we can see on other episodes the pool is perfectly fine.

Correction: The pool wasn't completely destroyed, he just broke into the bottom of the pool to get the chest. To keep up the appearance that nothing unusual happened, Paul would have to fix the pool so that no one would notice a difference.


Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: Mrs. Huber's "missing" posters state she died in Mid-December 2004. In the episode where she dies, the trees have green leaves, and the flowerbeds are full of colourful flowers.

Correction: Wisteria Lane is obviously in a part of the country that does not get cold in the winter.

Gabrielle: I feel a wave of morning sickness coming on, and I want to be standing on your mother's grave when it hits.



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.
