  • Doubling with Tear Jerker is Mary Alice's ending narration for "Bang!" Normally, she acts as a detattached omnicisent narrator. In this instance, she says that this would be the last time Lynette would dream of her, and that she is glad for it, a rare gesture of emotion on Mary Alice's part.
  • Again doubling with Tear Jerker, in 'Welcome to Kanagawa' when the Scavos are pulled out of the rubble and Ida Greenberg is nowhere to be found, Edie reaches out with a silent gesture of friendship as she slips her hand into Karen's moments after biting her head off.

  • A very sweet touching scene comes in Season 8, at the funeral of Chuck Vance. Bree tells Renee that she will always be her closest friend, even if she's known the other girls longer, simply because she was there to save her life.
  • In Season 8, Gabby is trying to keep Carlos' boss from finding out Carlos is drunk. He does but rather than be upset, he shows his own sober chip, revealing he's been in AA for years. He tells Carlos he knows exactly what he's going through and is giving him the same chance someone once gave the boss by letting him get himself cleaned up rather than just fire him and make things worse.
