Lorelai is going through her big giant Wal-Mart book at the front desk of the Inn. She starts throwing a temper tantrum and says to Michel, "I give up." Insert gigantic pout. "That's the spirit," Michel says to her. He says that perhaps she isn't cut out to be her own boss, and is more of a "worker bee, a follower." He compares her to the people in parking lots who wave orange glowsticks at you and tell you where to park. "You're baiting me, aren't you?" Lorelai squints. "No!" Michel says. "I seriously have no faith in your aptitude." Hee.
Sookie giggles in saying that Jackson called and said he'd love to have dinner with her. The problem is his cousin's in town and staying with him for the week. Lorelai says that Sookie will just have to have the date on another day. Sookie giggles and says that would have been a good thing to say, but instead she had suggested a double date with Jackson's cousin, and that Lorelai would go. Michel smiles from the side. Lorelai says she hates blind dates. Sookie says this isn't a blind date, but rather Lorelai keeping Jackson's cousin company while she has her date. Sookie clasps her hands and says, "Lorelai, please! I'll be your best friend." "You are my best friend," Lorelai drones. Sookie: "And you're mine." Lorelai: "I know I am." Sookie: "So, what are best friends for?" Lorelai pouts and shakes her head a few times while saying she'll go. Sookie thanks her and says, "You will not regret this." "Pick another phrase," Lorelai says. "You will not have to pay," Sookie smiles. Lorelai sighs, and tells the laughing Michel to shut up.
