Morning. Lorelai walks into the kitchen and tells Rory that the car's dead. She imitates the horrible sound it's making, adding that the actual sound is "less feminine." Rory diagnoses the problem as the battery. Lorelai asks what she ever did to make the battery so angry. Rory reminds Lorelai of the time she left the radio on in the car all night, killing the battery, and the time she left the lights on in the car all night, killing the battery, and the many times she's kept the door open all night thus leaving the overhead light on, killing the battery. Lorelai admits that she's done multiple things to make the battery mad. Rory asks whether Lorelai is going to walk. Lorelai says she's wearing heels. Rory tells her to change her shoes. Lorelai says she would have to change her outfit. To change her outfit, she'd have to walk upstairs. Rory says that it's like living with Zsa Zsa Gabor. Lorelai gets on the phone to call Michel as Rory complains that her backpack is too small to hold all of her books. Michel picks up the phone at the Independence Inn and Lorelai puts him on hold to tell Rory that her backpack isn't too small -- she's just got too many books. Michel has to stay on hold as Lorelai has a long conversation about Rory's many books. Rory has three different books for reading on the bus depending on her mood, books to read at lunch, essays, biographies, short stories and novels. Michel is losing his patience as Lorelai continues a conversation that doesn't involve him. ["I realized I was getting too involved in the show when I was getting vicariously furious on Michel's behalf because Lorelai was being so inconsiderate." -- Wing Chun] Lorelai tells Michel to come pick her up. Michel says he's already at work. She tells him to put Carol on the desk and to come pick her up. Michel Frenches that he's not speaking to Carol because she ate his low-fat cheese. Hee. Lorelai promises to buy Michel more low-fat American cheese if he comes and picks her up. Michel adds a cookie to that contract, and it's a deal. Rory brags that she fit all of her books in her bag. Lorelai shows her that she forgot her French book. Rory says she was planning on carrying her French book, anyway. Lorelai jokes that Rory's going to fall over backwards from the weight of the book, and Rory says goodbye.
