Town Meeting. Sookie, Michel, and Lorelai patiently wait for their turn to make their proposal. Taylor is discussing landscaping to the town square. Rory notes that it's been a very long meeting. Michel keeps almost puking because the man sitting next to him has body odor. "Michel, you're French. How can you even tell?" Lorelai asks. Taylor scolds the girls for making so much noise. Lorelai says they're just patiently waiting their turn. Taylor's next item is to announce fourth-grader Donny Pass's recent runner-up award in a Connecticut writing competition. His story was called "The Happiest Doughnut," and from the cover we can see that Donny clearly had some help from a design department or paid for some serious clip art. Sookie threatens to give birth out of boredom, and of course she's sitting directly in front of Donny's mother, who then stands to take the crowd's praise. Don't cry, Donny. Your mom obviously did all the work, anyway. Lorelai says she's sure Taylor's doing this on purpose. Taylor describes the story as funny and a little sad, adding that the dunking scene is a little intense for young kids. Gypsy asks how a "stupid doughnut" can be happy. Rory says that the genius of Donny Pass is how he makes you think. Gypsy hands Rory her mail. Rory hands Gyspy some of her mail, and asks her to pass another handful back to Al. I can't believe it's not a pancake catalog. Gypsy has another pack of mail for Andrew (I thought Babette had his mail!). The rest of the townies in attendance stand and swap their mail. Lorelai tells Michel she can't smell a thing. Michel says he's breathing it all in, so it's not reaching her. Taylor asks for order. Andrew asks Gypsy why the letter from his girlfriend is open. Gypsy apologizes, and says it must have fallen open accidentally. Andrew accuses Gypsy of reading his private mail. Gypsy says the only thing private in that letter was about some medical stuff. Miss Patty hands Taylor his Pennysaver and his "girly magazines." Taylor corrects her, saying they are "lifestyle" magazines. He adjourns the meeting, and tells everyone to pick up a free copy of "The Happiest Doughnut" on their way out.
