Rory and Lorelai are at Sookie's house. You'd think smart Rory would have figured that one out about half a block ago. Rory tells Sookie that she didn't have to do all of this. Sookie's just happy to cook, since it affords her the precious few screen minutes she gets. She says she loves feeding her girls and making them happy. I'm eating a frosted fake Pop-Tart this morning, which not only goes really well with Gilmore Girls but is exactly what I'd imagine Rory and Lorelai would have on mornings when Lorelai and Luke are giving each other the cold shoulder. And you know what? Some of my Pop-Tart burned in the toaster. I don't have any more fake Pop-Tarts. This is all I get. This is my lot in life. Burned fake Pop-Tarts as I furiously finish my Gilmore Girls recap because I was sick earlier after a horrible day of plumbers when my downstairs bathroom decided to run all water the wrong direction. But do you see me demanding that my friends get up hours early to fix food for my daughter and me? I'm sure Chilton has a breakfast hour, as well. Too bad Rory can't get to school on time since she no longer has a car of her own. Rory comments that she feels guilty. Lorelai tells her that eating drowns the guilt. Lorelai asks what's wrong with "Narcoleptic Nate." It's Jackson, asleep on his hand, exhausted from having to get up early to entertain his fiancée's needy friends. All Jackson can do is make a moaning noise. Sookie says that Jackson isn't a morning person. Jackson moans again. Sookie says it takes about an hour for Jackson to become Jackson. Lorelai says it sounds like Jackson's suffering from some indigestion. Lorelai says she has an idea about the wedding. Instead of tiny wrapped Jordan Almonds at every place setting (I've never heard of such a custom), she suggests tiny packages of aspirin for the morning-after hangover. Sookie laughs and says it's funny. "'Cause Jordan Almonds are sodone," Lorelai says. Hey, Lorelai, why don't you plan your own wedding? Oh, you already did it but we didn't see any of it and then you dropped it at the last minute? I keep forgetting. Lorelai asks Jackson if he's into the aspirin idea. Jackson only moans. She asks if that's a yes. Sookie says that everything takes time to register with Jackson, and that he'll finally chime in his opinion in a few days. My favorite line of the episode goes to Lorelai only three minutes in: "Hey, is Jackson in the house? Lemme hear ya say, 'Unnnh!'" Jackson moans in reply. Lorelai is happy about her new toy. Rory half-scolds her mother yet again, and we go to opening credits.
