Lorelai and Luke walk back to the diner. Lorelai asks Luke if he thinks Louie's in Heaven. Luke says he hopes so, if only so that his father can kick Louie around. Lorelai wonders if you can still kick when you're in Heaven, since you should be ghost-like and see-thru.
The diner has turned into a wake. Rory tells Lorelai she thought that she set it up. Lorelai says she didn't. Rory's all dressed for a wake, so I'm wondering why she didn't go to the funeral. She says people came by and set it up. Lorelai tells Luke that it's really a wake for Luke's benefit and not Louie's. She tells Luke that people like him. Luke tells her to shut up. Lorelai says she doesn't know how people could resist liking him, with charm like that. Naked Trucker compliments Cardigan Man on his war outfit. "Very 'One If By Land'," he says. Cardigan Man isn't happy and gets even grumpier when he finds out he's helping himself to some of Naked Trucker's veggies. He dumps them and tells Naked Trucker to tend to his stand. Naked Trucker says the stand is all packed up and he's done. He just grows the veggies in his back yard, and when he's sold out he's done. He plans on doing some traveling, going down to Israel, and planting some peace. Cardigan Man tells him to shut up. He asks why he went thought all that "hoo-ha" for nothing. Naked Trucker tells Cardigan Man twice that Cardigan Man put himself through it.
Rory tells Jess that he did a good thing by unlocking the door to the diner and letting people set up the wake. With one turn of the wrist he became an official member of the Stars Hollow community. Jess thinks it's as much bullshit as I do. He's done nothing but complain like a mini-Louie. He didn't set anything up or help. He unlocked a door. That's it. Miss Patty set it all up. Rory, you're creating your own dysfunctional relationship.
The corner table is sharing stories about Louie. With every story, the crowd roars louder and gets mistier. The first guy tells a story about Louie stealing candy from a kid on Halloween. "I never trick-or-treated again," Kirk says. Miss Patty tells about the time Louie pushed ahead of her in line, told her to kiss his ass, and dropped his pants. Babette warbles about the time that Louie stole her parking space. Sounds like a real winner, that Louie.
Next time someone seems to call Lorelai on her shit. Let's hope.
