Luke has called Lorelai, who is always walking into her house when the phone rings, even though she has a cell phone that he probably should have called instead. Lorelai: "Well! Huzzah, and prithee, aren't thou--" Luke: "Stop." Heh. Lorelai whines that Luke wasn't home yesterday like he said he'd be. Luke says he's coming home today. Lorelai: "Oh, what's that, Lucy? A football for me to kick?" Luke says he means it this time. In the background, T.J. complains about the screwdriver. Luike promises he's leaving right away, but needed to call Lorelai right now to tell her the scuttlebutt about Haybale Bill and Annie the grog girl. No new news, just letting us know that Lorelai's been keeping up the gossip over the weeks. Rory's letter has arrived, so who knows what day it is supposed to be. Lorelai moans that she's got a little assignment she has to do. Lorelai asks Luke what lie he's going to tell her now about coming home. Luke says he's coming home today. Lorelai wonders if that means this week, this month, or this year. Luke: "Today." Lorelai: "See you when Hillary's president."
Luke hangs up and looks for a piece of jewelry to bring Lorelai. Liz asks if he needs help. Luke asks for something to match the earrings he already gave her. When Liz finds out that it's Lorelai who's getting the jewelry, she's ecstatic for her brother. "Huzzah!" she shouts. "Huzzah!" shouts T.J.. "Huzzah!" shouts the rest of the Renaissance Faire. It's the funniest moment of the episode, even though it's a totally cheap Monty Python joke. It works. Luke admits he never got the whole "Huzzah" thing. Liz says she's so happy for her brother: "You found your T.J.!" "Please don't put it like that," Luke requests. "You're not going to be alone," Liz says to Luke. What's with everyone happy for these two not because they like each other, but because it means they won't die alone? Is that what happens when people fall in love later in life? Because that's depressing. Liz and Luke hug goodbye. T.J. says that his spine could snap if he hugs anyone. Luke settles for a handshake and a "Good morrow, buddy."
