Lorelai then notices that Kirk is in the back, which leads me to think she doesn't actually look at her employees, or she might have noticed the extra one staring at her -- the one she sees every day in Stars Hollow. Kirk is thinking about going into hotel management (Note to Kirk: run away! Get out while you still have your sanity!), and he's sort of surveying the staff meeting, taking notes for himself. Lorelai tells him he can't crash a staff meeting, which Kirk immediately notes into his notebook. "I'm learning so much," he says to a nameless Dragonfly worker. (Marilyn Manson: Mechanical Animals.)
Michel takes the floor to tell everyone that someone is breaking into the rooms and stealing bars of Toblerone. Sookie immediately looks guilty. I'm not being mean; she's totally the thief. You'll see. (Spoiler alert!) Lorelai's all, "I bet it's the guests!" Michel says that not only do they have thieves, but it's an inside job. Sookie's all, "THAT'S CRAZY! HAS ANYBODY SEEN RORY? SHE SLEPT WITH DEAN! LOOK OVER THERE! IS THAT CLETUS?" Michel suggests surveillance cameras, fingerprinting and FBI involvement. Lorelai tells everyone to drop their pants for Michel as they leave, and adjourns the meeting. Kirk complains that the break room spread isn't as good as some of the other companies he's been surveying.
Luke's. Lane is waiting tables when Kyong enters. Kyong hands Lane her Sam Ash catalogs (which were in the trash with old fish and bok choy) and her Madonna t-shirt (which Lane insists she wore """"Ironically"""" (Note irony-appropriate quotation marks. And also: hey!)) MamaLane was using the t-shirt as a rag, noting that the "whore's face" really gets the grime off. Kyong tells Lane that MamaLane expects her daughter to come to the Lunar New Year party. Lane says this is unbelievable, given the way MamaLane damned my friend Todd Lowe to both the fires of hell and hungry carnivorous dogs. (Kinky: Kinky.) Lane is furious with her mother for just expecting her to come to Lunar New Year like nothing ever happened. Kyong says, "Unh! I'm not your sounding board. I deliver scoop; you deliver Monte Cristo sandwich." Hee.
