Luke's. Luke's got some helper who sure isn't Jess and I've never seen him before. Rory and Lorelai walk in. Lorelai remarks that it's busy. Rory says that Luke gets good word-of-mouth. Lorelai says that they have to start spreading bad word-of-mouth if they want to keep getting a table. They debate briefly what kind of bad rumours they should spread, including vermin. Lorelai sees Luke talking to a customer and comments that it's strange to see him laughing and conversing with someone, since he's usually the "master of the monosyllable." Lorelai comments that Luke never flirts with any of the women. Rory says that he's flirted with Lorelai on more than one occasion, and tells her to flirt with him now so they can get some coffee. Lorelai flails a napkin in the air and "yoohoo"s for Luke to be attentive to their needs. Luke yells for Lorelai to cram it and sit on it until he's ready to serve them. Rory says she found a CD under the front seat of the car and was wondering whether Lorelai lost one. Lorelai says she didn't. Rory accuses Lorelai of hiding this particular CD. Lorelai asks why she would hide a CD. "I don't know," Rory says. "Bay City Rollers?" Lorelai says that it's not a Bay City Rollers CD and Rory traps Lorelai in her lie. She's been hiding Barry Manilow underneath the front seat of the car because he's her guilty pleasure. This CD has a live medley of all the commercials he's written. Rory says that Lorelai doesn't have to justify her Manilove to Rory. Lorelai says that's very diplomatic, considering Rory had a Bryan Adams poster over her bed. ["My sister and I argued for about five minutes at this point over whether Rory's too young to care about Bryan Adams or even know who he is. Ultimately we decided she might be." -- Wing Chun] Rory calls Lorelai a "fink." Lorelai tries to engage Luke in the conversation, but he's back to being monosyllabic. Rory orders breakfast, and Luke leaves. Lorelai asks whether Luke has dated anyone since Rachel. Rory says she doesn't know where Luke would have met any women anyway, since he's always in the diner or his apartment. Lorelai fantasizes that Luke's got a "little chippy" stowed away somewhere that he keeps on the side. Lorelai predicts that Luke's going to be a bachelor for life. Rory says there's someone out there for everyone. Rory starts laughing and admits she's thinking about Barry Manilow. She starts singing "Looks Like We Made It." Lorelai: "Oh, yeah? Spice Girls." Rory: "Duran Duran." Lorelai: "Dido." Rory: "Olivia Newton-John." Lorelai reminds Rory that she and Lane were doing the Macarena for hours and hours for weeks on end. Rory says they were mocking the Macarena and you can't mock the mocking. They decide to stop fighting and be friends again. They clink coffee mugs. Rory giggles and Lorelai yells for her to stop.
