Rory asks Lorelai where her sudden over-interest in her daughter's safe sex life is coming from, and Lorelai slowly admits that she thinks she might be pregnant. "Oh," says Rory. Lorelai says that this could have been avoided if only Emily'd had the protection talk with her, or even Miss Driscoll, who spent every PTA meeting talking about golf instead of safe sex. I have to think that a safe sex talk from Emily would be more damaging than it would be helpful. And that the rest of the PTA preferred Miss Driscoll's golf chat to her safe sex lecture. Rory stupidly asks for the details, and Lorelai says that she and Luke got drunk at the party and then came home and had sex with "all roadblocks down." This is unusual for her, Lorelai says, as the last time she had "all roadblocks down" was when Rory was conceived. Surprisingly, Rory doesn't have the "MOM! EW! GROSS!" reaction that most daughters would have if their mother started discussing her sex life, but lends a sympathetic ear and says that just because Lorelai had unprotected sex doesn't automatically mean she's pregnant. It does if you're on 7th Heaven! Lorelai says she ate an apple today. And she liked it. Rory says that's not a good sign, but maybe Lorelai's body just wants her to have the government's recommended daily allowance of fruit and vegetables. And, Rory adds, if worse comes to worst, Lorelai is having a baby with Luke! Silence. "It is Luke?" asks Rory, as disturbing images of half-sibling that looks like Kirk or Taylor flash through her head. Lorelai says it's definitely Luke. But she doesn't want to be a mother again -- at least not now. This is the first time in her life when she's been able to be a "single, grown-up woman," and she wants to enjoy it. Interesting that Lorelai considers herself to be single. Rory says Lorelai may very well not be pregnant, but asks what Lorelai will do if she is. Lorelai doesn't have an answer for that.
