Oh, it's Michel! I love Michel. I've only seen him in one episode, but that was enough to make me love him. He has taken a call from Sookie, and passes it to Lorelai. Lorelai asks Michel whether Sookie said how her doctor's appointment went. Michel says he's sure Sookie would have told him if he had actually cared enough to ask. Ha! He's great. Lorelai picks up the phone, and Sookie tells her that her doctor ordered her on immediate bed rest, which means she won't be cooking for a while. Lorelai asks what needs to be done for tonight's dinner in Sookie's absence, and Sookie starts to rattle off a long list of instructions that Lorelai quickly says she doesn't understand. She tries to a crack joke about it in her Lorelai way, but Sookie is not in the mood. I guess she won't be watching any Comedy Central Presents... during her time in bed. Lorelai tells Sookie that everything will be fine, and pretty much hangs up on her. Lorelai has no patience for people who don't enjoy her particular brand of humor. Why is she with Luke?
Lorelai and Michel make their way to the kitchen, and Lorelai asks Michel what they need to get tonight's dinner ready. Michel says they need Sookie. Lorelai says that there is no Sookie, so they'll have to go to Plan B. "That involves Sookie's clone, also named 'Sookie,'" Michel responds. I love how Sookie's clone also has to be named Sookie. I love Michel. Lorelai asks Michel for a rundown of the kitchen staff and what their jobs are, which you'd think she would know herself, being the owner or whatever of the Inn. I guess she's hands-off when it comes to aspects of Inn management that involve actual management. Michel says that they have a guy who does salads, a guy who does desserts, a guy who dresses the plates, a guy who cleans, a guy who uses tongs, and a guy whose role in the kitchen besides sitting around looking creepy is unknown. Michel advises checking the last guy's trunk before he leaves. Sookie takes care of everything else. Lorelai asks who is going to cook the ducks. "It will not be me," Michel non-volunteers. Lorelai asks what they should do. Michel suggests ordering pizza, Chinese food, or perhaps "one of those hoagies that you cut into a million pieces." His accent makes this line, too. Lorelai calls an end to suggestion time.
The phone rings at Luke's. It's Lorelai, freaking out about the Sookie situation. "I'll be right there," says Luke, whose backwards hat gives him the power to read minds.
Logan and Rory have finished lunch and make plans to see a movie. Don't they have, like, classes? Or, if it's still the weekend, work to do? Actually, now that I think about it, I never woke up before 3 in the afternoon on weekends during my college years. They enter Logan's dorm room, only to find a blonde woman sitting on his couch. Yale really needs to crack down on their dorm security. Strangers walk in and out of other people's rooms seemingly at will. Logan is extremely happy to see the girl. Rory is not. She thinks it's another one of Logan's easy women, an easy assumption to make given how affectionate he is with her. "Maybe I should go," says Rory. When did her self-esteem get so low? Logan laughs and introduces Rory to his sister, Honor. Rory smiles geekily at this, which I liked, but would have liked a lot more if Rory hadn't just been so ready to get dumped on her ass. Honor shows Logan her new engagement ring, and Logan congratulates her and they hug again. Honor adds that she's going to tell their parents about the engagement at dinner tomorrow, and begs Logan to come "for support." Logan reluctantly agrees to go, and places his hand on the inside of his sister's thigh. Um...I think I'm starting to figure out why Logan never had a girlfriend before.
