We next see Luke and Lorelai waking up in the morning, both saying that they slept better last night than they had in months. Lorelai puts on her robe, saying she's going to go check on Logan and Rory, and finds that they've left breakfast for them on a tray outside the room. "Breakfast Santa," Lorelai says. "The service here is so excellent." They sit in bed eating breakfast, sharing stories about their childhood trips to Harvey's Beach. It is one of the most natural moments Luke and Lorelai have ever shared onscreen, and I really like it. Lorelai tells a story about having a crush on the guy who ran the snack stand. "We used to do cartwheels to get his attention," she says. Luke says it's possible that they could have been there at the same time, on the same day. "Nah," Lorelai says. "We never were. 'Cause you would have distracted me from the snack stand guy, and no guy ever did." Luke laughs. "What about eloping?" he asks. They talk about eloping -- which is the kind of wedding I would have though these two characters would have had all along -- and Luke says they can even come back to the Vineyard for a few weeks in the summer, to celebrate. Lorelai is thrilled with that idea, I've completely made up with Luke, Lorelai is happy, all is right with the world, and this scene is so sweet, I wish it would never end.
