Luke runs after the re-enactment actors. He says the funeral is the next day and that he hasn't heard back from any of them. He calls them "freaks." They sigh and confess that they don't want to go to the funeral. They didn't like Uncle Louie. He was mean to them. They hated him, they say. He was a scowling, cigar-smoking spitter. He kicked dogs, hit on wives, and did terrible things. Kirk and some guy reading cue cards banter for a very long time about their own woes with dogs and wives. Luke says they're exaggerating. When Louie left town, they threw a party. The guy with the wife made love to her like he never had before. Kirk's dog barked a quiet bark and then died. Luke says he can't believe this. Bad Actor Townie says, "Come on, Luke! You knew the guy!" Yeah, he was related. Maybe you'd like to stop calling him an asshole in front of family. Luke says that Louie deserves a war hero's funeral. Luke calls the guys lazy. Cardigan Man says that Louie was the lazy one. He used to come by and throw rocks at them when they did their re-enactments. And small tools. Luke says he's heard enough. Another man interjects that Louie only got meaner as he got older. Never had kids. A loner. "To hell with you guys! Who needs you?" Luke storms off threatening to throw rocks and small tools. "A defensive hothead," Cardigan Man says. "Just like Louie!"
Sookie is using an iBook, squealing about how high-tech everything is. She's in the kitchen, not working. Lorelai asks what she's doing. Michel looks over Sookie's shoulder. Sookie says she's downloading wedding stuff from Prague. "Oh, you're kidding," Lorelai moans. Sookie says it's streaming in right now. She boasts about her newfound 'net knowledge: "That's internet talk. 'Streaming.' Did you know that?" Then she tells Lorelai that it's not Czechoslovakia anymore. It's Czech Republic. I know. I'm part Slovak. Lorelai asks what Sookie's downloading. "Oh, this will much amuse you," Michel Frenches. It's samples of the big ceramic stands for the giant papier-mâché mushrooms for the midgets dressed like angels to dance under. Sookie says their mushroom maker in Paris is so much better than the Belgian guy. Lorelai closes the iBook and tells Sookie that they need to talk. Michel pleads with Lorelai to not talk Sookie out of these things. He doesn't want to die without having seen midgets dancing under paper mushrooms. Lorelai tells him to stay out of it. Michel pouts off, telling Lorelai that she's no fun.
