It retells, by use of the most modern stage techniques, the strange, appealing and utterly fascinating story of two mentally-disturbed adolescents: David, only son of wealthy parents, over-protected by a dominating mother, who is tortured by his mania against being touched; and Lisa, the waif who has never known parental love, who has developed a split personality and is in effect two different girls, one of whom will speak only in childish rhymes and insists upon being spoken to in the same manner.
We learn something new every day. Cardigan Man asks Naked Trucker why he opened a produce stand across the street from Cardigan Man's market. Naked Trucker compliments Cardigan Man's tissues. He likes to say everything twice, with the emphasis on the second repetition. Miss Patty asks if the parsley is priced by bunch or pound. Naked Trucker calls Miss Patty beautiful and tells her it's by pound. I'll leave that joke alone. She tells him it's a very good deal. Cardigan Man moans to Patty about the knife sticking in his back. Miss Patty blows him off. Cardigan Man says this can't be right. Naked Trucker says he has all the proper permits and he followed the rules just like his father taught him. His dad was a cop for twenty years, who got shot in the butt. "Good man. Tips over sometimes when he sits, but good man." The woman we saw in the store earlier tells Naked Trucker that he has beautiful sprouts. "For a beautiful lady," he answers. Cardigan Man says he feels sick.
Independence Inn. Michel asks about the nine rooms set aside without a name or a credit card to hold. He asks if it's a mistake. Lorelai says they are for Luke. Michel asks if there's a French fry convention or a Milkshake Symposium. Lorelai says it's a personal thing for Luke, and that she's covering it. "Soda Pop Seminar?" Lorelai tells him to stop. Michel counts to three internally and then asks, "Pickle Party?" Lorelai turns around to see Emily walk into the Inn. She panics, wondering why Emily would be showing up. Did she miss an appointment? Is it somehow Tuesday already? Wasn't that just yesterday? Emily asks if they have to make appointments to see each other. Lorelai says they don't. Emily says she isn't there to see Lorelai, she's there for Sookie. Emily excuses herself. Lorelai follows.
