Desperate Housewives Word Confusion

On last night's episode of Desperate Housewives the character Gabrielle (while talking about drinking cocktails) referred to an item that she called a "swivel stick." I had to hit the rewind button a couple of time to be sure I heard this correctly, and I'm afraid I did. I wonder if Eva Longoria misspoke or if the writers of the episode don't know that the small stick used to stir cocktails is called a "swizzle stick."

Ooh, great catch! I watched that episode and didn't even notice that! :)

Or perhaps she'd ha done too many cocktails!

Oops... let me try that again:
Perhaps she'd had one too many cocktails

I thought I heard that, but didn't have the motivation to pick up the remote and rewind!
