In the hallway, Lorelai asks a random doctor about pregnancy tests. Specifically, how soon after the possible conception they can detect anything. Doctor Random says two weeks. Lorelai says that's a long time to worry, and asks if there is perhaps a "machine" she can use that will immediately tell her whether or not she's pregnant. Why is Lorelai so completely stupid sometimes? A Rube Goldbergian Pregnancy Detector Machine, would have been funny as hell, though. If you're pregnant, a rope lowers a boot onto a bike pedal, which then moves a chain attached to a match so that it ignites and burns through a thin rope that, once broken, releases a bowling ball and goes down a chute and hits a watering can that fills up a bowl so that a small boat floats to the top of the bowl, and the boat is the U.S.S. You're Pregnant. A small dog is also somehow involved. Doctor Random says that there is no such machine, and that Lorelai will just have to wait and take the stupid test. Lorelai says she's worried because she was craving an apple today, which she hasn't done since she was pregnant with her first child. Doctor Random's like, "You've had a kid before, and you're still this uninformed about the process? You need more help than I can give you, sister." As for the apple craving thing, if your pregnancy is so early that it can't be detected by a test, I would think it's too early to give you apple cravings as well.
