Lane opens her door. MamaLane thanks her for having her. She gives Lane multi-grain soy pudding. Lane invites her in and introduces her to (mf) Todd Lowe and Brian, who are currently dressed like John Cusack's friends in Sixteen Candles. They are a sweaty kind of nervous, and MamaLane is shocked, disturbed, and horrified to find out that Lane is living with boys. The boys leave to get MamaLane a cup of uncomfy tea. Lane gives MamaLane a tour. MamaLane runs out of the house.
I've been recapping this episode my entire life. I think I might have missed my wedding to Stee.
At the reception, one of Carrie's friends realizes that they have turkey legs. This is odd, given that she watched Luke make them. Lorelai tells Luke she was born four hundred years too late, and that this is how she was meant to be. Right. They didn't have coffeemakers in these days of yore, Lor. MamaLane runs up to Lorelai and says that there were two boys: "One with hair." And boys and broken furniture and dirt and a broken window and boys. And a tiny fridge and guitars and boys. Two boys: "She stood in that room with two boys. I didn't stand alone in a room with two boys until I was...I've never done that. She's dirty," MamaLane says. Lorelai says that Lane isn't dirty; she was trying to be honest with her mother, which is good. She could have hidden the boys, but instead she wanted to be honest with her mom and introduce her to her bandmates and roommates: "I've met those boys. They're innocent. As innocent as if she was living with two girls. So think of them that way." MamaLane says she doesn't like girls either. "You like them better than boys," Lorelai says. MamaLane: "True." Lorelai says that Lane is trying really hard, so she advises MamaLane to think of the boys as two tall, gawky, sometimes unwashed, caring girls who watch out for Lane's safety. MamaLane walks off repeating, "Girls." Lorelai tells Luke that MamaLane will be okay. She points out Jess, who has made a friend.
