She Needs Me
Season 8 | Episode 815 | Aired 03/03/2012

Porter gets a decent-paying job at a restaurant with health benefits for him and the baby. The only problem is that he needs someone to watch the kid while he's at work. Lynette assures him that the full-time babysitter he seeks will not be her. That's too bad because Porter was thinking of naming his little girl Lynette. When Susan gets wind of what's going on, she offers to be his daycare provider and suggests Sophie for a baby name.

Lynette reluctantly lets Porter have the bassinet she used for all five of her kids. She also gets a surprise when Tom says he'll take the kids for an entire week. It's his way of giving her a break for all the times she flew solo while he was away on business. As far as the Porter situation, Lynette thinks Susan is trying to steal her grandchild away. That's why she swipes back the bassinet.

Tom has a talk with Susan while Mike chats with Lynette. The men try to explain the reasons why the ladies in their lives do what they do. Susan is acting the way she is because she's planning for this baby without Julie. As for Lynette, she's the type of person who needs to be needed. That's why she works together with Susan to fix up the new nursery just right.
