Trivia
Bree's response when her son tells her he's gay is, "I'd love you even if you were a murderer," the same quote that Marc Cherry's mother told him when he came out.

Sheryl Lee was originally cast as Mary Alice Young and actually shot the pilot but at the last minute Brenda Strong was cast in the role and Mary Alice's scenes had to be re-shot.

Calista Flockhart, Heather Locklear, and Mary-Louise Parker were considered for the role of Susan. Courteney Cox was also considered for the role of Susan. Marc Cherry didn't ask her because at the time she was pregnant with her daughter Coco and had expressed interest in taking some time off to raise the baby.

Goofs
Xiao-Mei would never be able to be a surrogate without having a child of her own first. All reputable surrogacy agencies in the US require their surrogates to have had at least one full-term, live birth before becoming a surrogate.

Although the creators of the show keep the location of Wisteria Lane a secret, several clues have been given that contradict each other. For example, in the first season the restaurant Saddle Ranch is featured once, suggesting that the mystery location is either in California or Arizona, where the restaurant has locations. However, two families, the Applewhites and the Mayfairs had moved from Chicago suggesting that Fairview is near there. Those two cities are very far from each other. When Renee (Vanessa Williams) arrives she tells Lynette that she flew all the way across the country to see her. Renee lives in NYC so that would suggest Fairview is on the west coast of the United States. There is also a scene where Suzy is looking for her ex-husband's grandmother's ring. You can see a sign for US Highway 7 which runs from Norwalk, CT, to just south of the Canadian border in Vermont.

Several times through out the seasons, when the camera is filming from the outside of a house into the front door, it can be noticed that the interior that is visible from the shot is different from the interior when filming on the inside of the house.

Q
What happened to Gabrielle & Carlos' baby?
A
Xiao-Mei, their surrogate, gives birth to a black child and the Doctor confirmed that there had been a mix-up with embryos. Presumably, that baby was returned to his correct parents, though this is not specified on the show. Carlos and Gaby's embryo did not successfully implant into the surrogate of the other couple. Despite being informed that it was highly unlikely Gaby would be able to conceive children, by season six, Carlos and Gaby are the parents of two daughters - Juanita and Celia. Gaby was pregnant with both children and carried both to term.
Q
How much time has passed in total?
A
Approximately 11 years and 9 months pass from the beginning of season one until the beginning of season seven. There have been 6 seasons, so about "6 years" worth of time, plus the 5 year time jump, that makes 11 years. There have also been three other short jumps in time over the seasons that make up the other 9 months. No time passes between season one and season two. 6 months pass between season two and season three. 1 month passes between season three and season four. 5 years pass between season four and season five. 2 months pass between season five and season six.One may argue that each season is not exactly one year, as it's not an entire year for us in "real time" either. While this is a very valid argument, the considerable age jump in the Scavo children at the beginning of season 5 is consistent with a 9 year and some month increase from the beginning of season 1.
