Nat: On Wisteria Lane at Susan and Mike's house; Susan was in the middle of putting up decorations for Julie's homecoming from University.
Mike: Don't you think you are over doing it?
Susan: No way, Julie deserves it!
(Susan looks at Mike as she continued to fix a banner to the wall)
Susan: Julie loved to come home and see that decorations had been put up for her, she used to come running in and would say in her most cheery voice…..
(Susan let's go off the banner and holds her arms out)
Susan: …..'Mummy, I'm home, did you miss me'?
(Susan put her arms down and starting looking off into the distance)
Mike: How old was she then?
(Susan looks back at Mike with a smile on her face)
Susan: She did that every day until she was about 12, but the mummy changed to mum after she was about 5 or 6. She would jump about singing...
(Susan starting looking around and then back to Mike again)
Susan: Oh we must get the karaoke machine out.
(Mike just stared at Susan)
Mike: Karaoke machine!
Susan: Yes, it's in the garage.
Mike: Do you really think she'll feel like singing?
(Susan went back to putting up the banner as the door opened and Julie Meyer walked in)
(Susan turned around so quickly she knocked over the box with the decorations in and they fell at Julie's feet)
Julie: Mum, what are you trying to do?
(Susan bent down and started picking them up)
Susan: I wanted to have these all up before you came home.
Julie: Is it someone's birthday?
(Susan picked the box back up and placed it back on the table)
Susan: You used to love coming home to decorations.
Julie: That was when I was little.
(Susan looked hurt)
Susan: I just wanted to give you a good homecoming.
(Julie smiled at her mum)
Julie: And it's lovely mum, thank you!
(Julie hugged her mum)
Susan: Welcome home hunny!
(Julie looked over at Mike)
Julie: Hi Mike!
Mike: Hey there kiddo!
(Susan leaned back away from Julie)
Susan: Are you putting on weight or is there something poking out in your pocket?
(Julie looked down at her belly where her oversized coat was covering)
Julie: I suppose I should just come right out and show you.
(Susan took a step back and looked really worried)
Susan: Show us what?
(As Julie took off her coat Susan turned to face Mike and saw his eyebrows shoot up as he continued to look at Julie. Susan slowly turned back to look at Julie's face who had a smug look on her face, Susan trailed her eyes downwards to Julie's belly and saw a small bump there.
Susan: Oh my god!
(Susan took a couple of steps back and bumped right up against Mike and he placed his hands on her shoulders as she continued to stare at Julie's bump and then slowly her eyes travelled back to Julie's face.
Susan: You're pregnant!
(Julie smiled a little)
Julie: Yes, it looks like I am.
(Susan leaned further back against Mike)
Mike: Maybe you should sit down.
(Mike guided Susan over to a chair)
Mike: Before you fall over!
(Susan sat down and Mike stood behind her)
Susan: I didn't even know you were in a relationship.
(Julie hung her coat up)
Julie: Well, that's the thing….
Susan: …. You're not in a relationship, are you?
(Julie sat down next to her mum)
Julie: No, I'm not!
Susan: Who's the father?
(Julie looks down at her feet)
Susan: I'm not going to like the guy, am I?
(Mike placed his hand back on Susan's shoulder)
Susan: Is he a boy from school?
(Julie continued to stare at her feet and didn't answer)
Susan: Come on; at least tell me who he is?
Mike: Patience, I'm sure Julie will tell us in her own time.
(Julie slowly looked back at her mum again)
Julie: I doubt I'll ever see him again…
(Julie looked back at her feet again)
Julie: ….. I hope not anyway!
Susan: Does he know about the baby?
(Julie looked back at her mum again)
Julie: It doesn't matter…..I'm giving it up for an adoption anyway.
(Susan stared back at Julie)
(Julie looked up at Mike and then back to her mum again)
Julie: I'll just take my stuff upstairs.
(Julie stood up and grabbed her bag and walked straight upstairs as Susan stared after her)
(Julie didn't turn back around and Susan slowly trailed her eyes up to Mike as he looked down at her)
Mike: I don't think any of us is in the mood for that karaoke machine.
(Susan just trailed her eyes back to the stairs)
Susan: What has happened to my little girl?
Mike: Looks like she is growing up fast.
Susan: Too fast!
