Lorelai confronts Rory outside, between the Gilmore homes, asking why she has to get her Rory gossip from her dad. Rory tells Lorelai she's not dating Logan, and that they're just friends. Lorelai wants to know if he's cute. Rory says she's not dating anyone, and since Dean, she's on a "boy break." She promises to tell Lorelai if that changes. Lorelai says she only has two things she does better than Richard, and that's having information about Rory and looking good in chiffon. Wait. I saw The Cat's Meow. She's wrong. Lorelai adds, "Oh, and my pole dance is way hotter." They head over to Emily's.
Lorelai struts around Luke's apartment wearing nothing but one of his flannels, bragging that one of the best things about dating a diner owner is that she's never too far away from pie. She carries an entire pie and then, I think, crawls into Luke's bed. Luke thought the benefit was that he always smells faintly of meat. Ugh. Lorelai says he's like Willy Wonka, but hotter. Luke says he's not hotter than Willy Wonka. He's got that right. Luke crawls into bed beside Lorelai. She says, "This is nice." He agrees. Don't you think one of them should have said "I love you" by now? I mean, I guess they're waiting until the end of the season, but it's a terribly stunted emotional relationship when they're not even talking about how they're not talking about it. And by that, I mean that a woman like Lorelai would normally be obsessing about how Luke feels about her, if he really loves her or not. Maybe she wouldn't be wondering if she loves him enough, but she'd surely worry that he didn't love her as much as she needs him to, particularly since Luke's such a quiet guy who doesn't profess his feelings too often. Instead, she'd rather know about his mysterious Dark Day, which isn't a mystery to anybody and would be pretty easy to figure out if Lorelai just walked down the street to his sister's house and asked her. Not that Lorelai's a fan of either logic or reason. I want some pie. Lorelai says she thinks their relationship is going well. Luke says he has very few complaints. Lorelai asks what complaints he does have, and Luke just laughs. Maybe it's the fact that Lorelai eats pie out of the tin in his bed. Lorelai gets sneaky and invites Luke to the party she knows he can't attend and acts all surprised and hurt when he says he's not going to go with her because he's got something to do that day. He says he has to go out of town on business. Lorelai asks when he turned into Willy Loman. Also: is Luke still in business with Richard? Is Lorelai ever going to confront her parents for being assholes to her boyfriend? Luke gives Lorelai a peck on the cheek and turns out the lamp, leaving her in the dark with her pie.
