Anyway, back to this painful scene. Lorelai is still rocking her fact sheet: the first people on Martha's Vineyard were members of an Indian tribe, the descendants of which still make up the town, originally called Gay Head. Insert what should be a snicker, here, but what instead turns into yet another irritating joke. "Figures," Lorelai says. "The Indians survive poverty and disease, and then get stuck living in a place called Gay Head." Luke is over it, sighing and harrumphing like he's getting a root canal. "Do you think," Lorelai goes on, painfully, "that there's any connection between Gay Head and spermaceti?" I...am I being too whatever about this? Because it just isn't funny. Luke isn't amused either, but more because he is humorless in general. It occurs to him that since the Vineyard is an island, they'll have to take a ferry over. "Augh!" Lorelai says. "There is a ferry to Gay Head? That is just too easy." Yes, exactly. It IS. That is what I am SAYING.
