Back at the house, Lorelai moans and rubs her feet. She's now in some sort of ice-skating outfit with her feet in a tub of water. Sookie stands over the stove with a kettle, and asks Lorelai how her feet feel. Lorelai moans and complains about the state of her feet and how silly she feels that she thought she could still skate. Sookie asks what Lorelai's plans are for this evening. Lorelai says she's going to do some line dancing, then run a 10K, and then just jump up and down really hard for about an hour. Sookie asks if she's going to see Max this evening. Lorelai gets defensive and says that she doesn't see him every single night. Sookie says he sounds like a great guy. "He is," Lorelai tosses out. Sookie says that Lorelai doesn't sound very convincing. Lorelai says that Max is a great guy. "For someone," she adds. "Someone else," Sookie adds to that. "Yes." Sookie asks how long they've been dating. It's somehow already been two months. Lorelai asks for the point. Sookie says that Lorelai is right on schedule. Lorelai says she has no idea what Sookie is talking about. "This is about the time you start to do your little getaway dance," Sookie says. "Two months. Right on the nose. You're good." Lorelai says she doesn't do any sort of dance. "You're cha-cha-cha-ing right now," Sookie says. Lorelai says she's just being practical. She says she's seeing Rory get attached to Max and that's not a good thing. "Oh, Rory's getting attached?" Sookie teases.
Lorelai says that since she's decided that Max isn't right for her, she should break it off before Rory gets hurt. Sookie asks if she can say something. "Of course you can," Lorelai eye-rolls. "Cha-cha-cha." Lorelai: "Stop that." Sookie: "Livin' la vida loca!" Sookie continues to sing more Ricky Martin songs to Lorelai. Lorelai says that this isn't a pattern. Sookie agrees and says that Lorelai usually doesn't get so upset and defensive during the getaway dance. "You must really like this guy," Sookie says. Lorelai frowns and says, "When did you become a relationship expert? You haven't been in a relationship in years." Sookie stops and stares at the wall. Lorelai pauses for a second before she says, "Wow. Zero to jackass in three point two seconds." She apologizes and Sookie tells her that she's only talking that way because her feet hurt. Lorelai says there's no excuse for the way she just talked to her and apologizes again. Sookie says she understands. "You know, it's not like I don't want a relationship," Sookie says. Lorelai says she knows and says she didn't mean anything by it. Sookie says it's hard with her hours, since she's always at the Inn. Lorelai apologizes again and asks if Sookie wants to sing more Ricky Martin to her. "No," Sookie pouts. Lorelai says that Sookie can and that she deserves to have to hear the Ricky Martin. Sookie slowly eases back into some Ricky Martin until she's dancing around the room. Lorelai puts up with it, but is clearly in more pain than her feet.
