Luke's. Lorelai can hardly eat her food, because she can't stop thinking about a boy. Luke walks over to fill her coffee cup and Lorelai asks if he has any good stories. He says he doesn't. Lorelai gives some suggestions of good stories (fans of GG trivia take note: Luke's best friend is named Jeff Smith), and Luke remarks that Lorelai doesn't do very well when Rory's running late. Rory enters, asking if Luke kept her company. "Oh, he tried," Lorelai says, "but really he's got nothing." Luke thanks her and walks away. Rory has brought a stack of books about fishing to teach Lorelai everything she needs to know. Lorelai reads a chapter on deep-water fishing, something I'm pretty sure she won't be doing on Saturday, but whatever. Lorelai and I both learn that an "angler" is the person fishing. Next door, it appears Taylor is renovating my neighbor's house, and is using nineteen loud tools to do it. On the other side, I just saw they are testing paint colors. I will never know what silence sounds like ever again. Lorelai wonders if her sequined top will be an appropriate lure. They miss out on making both a "bottom feeder" and a "Sisqo" joke. Why read it without making the jokes? I don't know. They just read it. It makes no sense. She's talking about lures. The one fish needs a flashy lure, like a sequined top. The bottom feeders aren't really into lures and will latch onto anything, and Sisqo needs a thong. I'm not getting paid to fix their scripts, so we'll just move on. Lorelai says instead that the larger, flashy baits are just going to make her look cheap. Luke wanders over and asks what's going on. They tell him. Lorelai lies to Luke and says that some friends of hers want to fish, so she's decided she can do it, too. She says that she might be a really good fisher, and she wouldn't know. Luke calls them "Thelma" and "Louise" without a good reason, and then says there's a better way to learn to fish. As the girls debate the finer points of the Fishing Channel, Luke says he knows how to fish. They avoid a "wader/waiter" joke. Luke offers to teach Lorelai how to fish "tomorrow after work." When does Luke ever stop working? Anyway, I believe the old saying goes, "If you give Lorelai a fish, she'll eat it. If you teach her how to fish, she'll ask when you're making her dinner." Lorelai points at a page we can't see and tells Luke she doesn't want to learn "that." Too bad we can't join in on what's going on. Rory also doesn't want to look at whatever it is we can't see. And since there's no joke, and we're completely lost, they end the scene.
