Ah, But Underneath
Season 1 | Episode 2 | Aired 10/10/04
Susan is horrified when she runs into Mike while she's throwing out her garbage in her bathrobe, sans makeup. She asks him to dinner anyway, but since she's a terrible cook, he offers to host. Edie stops by as Mike and Susan are unloading groceries and Susan has no choice but to invite her. Susan is discouraged when Mike's dog, Bongo, doesn't seem to like Susan, but adores Edie. To get Bongo to like her, Susan dabs gravy on her ear. All goes well, until Bongo starts choking -- he's swallowed her long, dangly earring! The evening is over as Mike rushes Bongo to the vet. Mike tells Susan he was so upset because Bongo was his late wife's dog. Susan is relieved Mike isn't mad, but she realizes he's still not over his wife. What she doesn't know yet is that he's keeping a gun, a pile of money, and a map of Wisteria Lane in his kitchen cabinet.
