Secrets and truths unfold through the lives of female friends in one suburban neighborhood, after the mysterious suicide of a neighbor.
4351 Wisteria Lane, the house in which Betty Applewhite lived with her family, was originally the house at 1313 Mockingbird Lane, in which The Munsters (1964) lived, and was the address for Elwood P. Dowd (Harvey's friend) in Harvey (1950).
I want a sexy little convertible! And I want to buy one, right now!
Maserati Saleswoman: I'll go start the paperwork.
Gabrielle: Well, not this one. I... vomited in this one.
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.
In the second season the shortened version of the credits was shown from episode 2.07 to episode 2.11.
