Independence Inn. Lorelai carries baskets of flowers to the front desk. Michel is preparing to leave, telling Lorelai that the piano movers and the chair people will be there soon. The rooms are made up and ready, and he'll be in at ten tomorrow. He says he's going home now unless she wants him to stay. She says she does want him to stay. Michel repeats that he's going home unless she wants him to stay. She says she does want him to stay. This goes on even longer than you could ever expect it to until Michel just yells that he's leaving. Lorelai's top is incredibly ugly. Lorelai asks Mystery Desk Clerk for her bag so she can go change in the back. Sookie walks over and coos that she went for the sugar daffodils for the top tier and they look great. She even had to make her own cake. Poor Sookie. Lorelai asks what Sookie's still doing there. Sookie says she just wanted to make one last check on everything, but now she's off to bed. Lorelai says that it's Sookie's last night as a single woman, and that she still looks good. Wait, so it's Saturday now? What happened with the election? What happened at Emily's? Are they coming to the wedding? Sookie says she feels good, too. Lorelai says that as of tomorrow, Sookie can start wearing cold cream to bed and stop shaving her legs. Sookie sings that she's got herself a man. Lorelai tells her to go to sleep. Sookie says she'll see her tomorrow. They're all sleeping at the Inn? How does this place make any money?
Lorelai half-assedly fixes a decoration and stares at it. Christopher walks down the stairs and notes, "Well, look who's got Martha Stewart locked in a basement!" He asks if Lorelai did all of these decorations. She says she did, but I can't see any decorations in the shot, so it's hard to be impressed. And when did Christopher get a room at the Inn? Lorelai asks what he's doing up. Christopher says he can't sleep because he sweet-talked the maid into leaving him a thousand pillow mints and then he ate them all. Lorelai sits on a couch and says she's exhausted. "Need some help?" he asks her. "No, I'm almost done," she says. Story of their lives. She plops into his arms and says she's so happy for Sookie. She says she saw Sookie's entire love story happen. She acts like she's the reason Sookie and Jackson are together because she hired Jackson and watched him and Sookie argue for so long. "I watched them fall in love," Lorelai says. My cable flips out and the next thing that I can see is Lorelai staring deep into Christopher's eyes. It's like something got censored because it appears no time has passed, but suddenly they're kissing. Just like that. More kissing. Kissing again. Lorelai pulls away and says they shouldn't do this: "You and I. We." That's how she summed that up. "Never been in the same place at the same time," he says. Except for all those times your penis has been in her vagina at the same time her vagina was around your penis. This seems like the perfect time to get together with Christopher, right? While he's still in a relationship with a woman and Rory's still trying to figure out if she can trust her father, just a few months after they almost got together, a few months after they sort of slept together at Lorelai's mom's house. Christopher and Lorelai kiss some more. Lorelai says her head is spinning. Christopher says it's all the plants in the room making too much oxygen. Lorelai asks what they do now. Christopher says he has a room upstairs and that he never dreamed he'd get this lucky. Ew. Won't Rory notice when Lorelai doesn't come to bed tonight? Lorelai's charmed anyway, cues the strummy music, stands up, and leads Christopher back up to his room for casual, condom-free sex. I refuse to get involved in Lorelai's crappy decisions anymore. I love how she can't even let Sookie have her own wedding without turning it around and making it all about her. Amazing.
