It's Mary Lynn Rajskub, who I understand plays Chloe on 24. Of all the troubadours, she is definitely my favorite. Her song, which she plays and sings live, is about losing her '89 Volvo and having to retrace her steps to the bar where she left it. It's fantastic and sadly interrupted by Taylor, who rushes outside to give a town-wide lecture. He tells all the would-be troubadours that they'll have to beat it. He says that he is a music lover, like anyone else, but they have got to go and will be forcibly removed "with water hoses and canine units if necessary." I wish the troubadors would attack him with their musical instruments, but they don't.
We cut away to Lorelai, who is arriving back at home. She notices that her phone has a missed call from Rory, and she calls her back. "You're grounded," Rory says. "Sorry, mom!" Lorelai jokes. "Kimmie saw this cute guy at the mall who was a total Chachi, and he bought us a Slurpie, and we totally lost track of time." Lorelai apologizes to Rory, saying that she just had fallen asleep at Sookie's during a girl's night. "I won't be ignored, Dan," Rory jokes, and Lorelai assures her -- while shaking her head vehemently to the contrary -- that everything is fine. Rory tells her about the graduation and how it went well, and that she may have to leave the FND after drinks tonight because she has plans with her man:"I made reservations at this really crappy Italian restaurant with chianti bottles hanging from the ceiling. The husband and wife who own the place always wind up screaming at each other after eight o'clock. We love it." Though she is disappointed she won't have any Rory time that night, Lorelai smiles, and says it sounds like fun.
