Desperate Housewives is over. For longtime fans of the ABC comedy-drama, the two-hour finale flew by.
The first half concluded the preposterous murder trial against Bree (Marcia Cross). It was sad to see Bree led off to the death chamber manacled and in an unflattering orange jumper. Am I kidding? As narrator Mary Alice would say: Yesssssss …
The second half saw the death of one of the best-loved residents of Wisteria Lane, plus a wedding and a birth. If you're at all up on the season you know who did what of which. In other words, it was sweet, it was pat, it was all a bit anticlimactic – but why wouldn't it be after all this time?
Here are some moments – none of them spoilers – that made the farewell classically Desperate.

He hit her with his open hand, she testified in court Thursday.
"It was a nice wallop to my head," the actress said in her multimillion-dollar wrongful termination trial in a Los Angeles courtroom.

They're milking it ... together!
William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman are the latest in a long line of celebrities to show off their milk mustaches for the "got milk?" campaign.
Their ad marks the first time the couple has posed together professionally. Macy and Huffman are expected to unveil the ad together at Scholastic Parent & Child magazine's Family of the Year event in Los Angeles on Monday.
They teamed up in order to set a positive example for their daughters and to promote good nutrition at a young age, according to a press release.

Felicity Huffman found herself in a Desperate predicament when a fellow driver was leering at her – but it turns he only had eyes for her new dog.
The Desperate Housewives actress, who was in New York City Monday to kick off the Iams Home 4 the Holidays campaign to encourage pet adoptions, shared the frisky tale about her family's recently adopted Labrador mix, Tucker.
While driving in L.A. recently, "I pulled up to a stop sign," said Huffman, who is North American Ambassador for the pet adoption campaign. "This guy pulls up next to me and says, 'Hey' and makes kissing noises. I ignored it. Then he said 'Hey' and made the kissing noises again. The third time he did it, I thought, 'I'm tired of being bullied and I'm not going to be frightened' – and I turned to him."

When Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman made her Broadway debut in David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow in 1988, she made an interesting discovery in her dressing room: A thong belonging to Madonna.
"I was like, 'This is Madonna's underwear," she tells More Magazine in its September issue.
So what did she do? She promptly tried it on! "Of course, it didn't fit me," she says.
