Luke asks Lorelai what that was all about. Lorelai says that they're going to check out this old inn Rachel found. Luke looks like he ate something that didn't agree with him. Lorelai asks him what's wrong. He says he didn't imagine that Lorelai and Rachel would be friends. Lorelai says that they aren't really friends, adding that Rachel seems really great. Luke says that Rachel is really great, but that he just didn't think that they'd get along because they're so different from each other. "'Cause I'm not really great?" Lorelai teases. Luke stammers around that Lorelai is great, but in a different way. Luke says that they're both great people, and that he's just surprised that their "different types of greatness" are getting along. Lorelai asks whether this is bothering him. "This conversation, yes," Luke says. Lorelai asks whether it's a problem for him that she's seeing Rachel. "Why would it be?" Luke asks. Lorelai says that she can't think of a reason. Luke says then it's not weird. She asks Luke to pour her coffee. As she says she's glad it's not weird for him, Luke accidentally pours coffee all over the table.
Lorelai is talking to a group of Japanese businessmen as their translator translates over her. It goes on way too long as Lorelai winds her way down to Michel. She's about to tell the businessmen to ask Michel if they have any problems, but Michel drones a "no" before she gets a chance. Somehow they've hired my friend Jeff to be the other desk clerk in this scene and it's just strange. It can't be him, but it really looks like him. And he's a desk clerk right now in New York, so it's all very strange. Lorelai points at the new guy and pegs him as Roger. Roger now turns towards us and gives a smile. Jeff Long, is that you? How did you get on Gilmore Girls and you didn't tell me? Bastard. Lorelai stumbles back through the lobby without the tour group, pauses, hides her head behind her folder, and sighs off. The camera follows her gaze to Rune sitting on the couch. He checks a centerfold.
Lorelai slams into the kitchen and over to Sookie. Sookie starts gushing about all of the great food she made for Lorelai that she likes so much.
