Trivia: Ricardo Antonio Chavira was almost replaced as Carlos Solis because the producers felt his acting was stiff in the Pilot.
Trivia: Bree and Lynette are walking to Juanita's funeral. In the original broadcast Bree said, "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 "the Catholics", and the audio has a noticeable change at that point. Also, the closed captioning just says "them". It seems that the line was changed in post-production with an overdub, possibly due to the Pope dying around the same time. The correct version is on the DVD.
Trivia: 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.
Trivia: 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".
Trivia: 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!"
Trivia: Almost all of the series' episode titles are either a line from or the title of a Stephen Sondheim song.
Trivia: Season 3 Episode 21: Although Edie's ex-husband is called "Charles McLain", his name is never mentioned in the episode.
