First of all, this title might just be a shout-out. I'm not saying anything about anything, but a few months ago I got the following phone call:
She: Okay, so we were on the phone and we were hanging up like we always do and I said something that made him laugh and then he goes, "I lo...mmm."
She: Yeah. And then I totally dork out and I go, "That's okay! Bye!" and hang up like it's the seventh grade.
Pamie: Look outside your window and see if he's riding his bike by your house.
She: He lo...mmm's me.
Pamie: That's wonderful!
She: Do you think?
Pamie: Hold on. I got another call. Hello?
He: Hi. I was hanging up the phone with her and I was all...
Pamie: I know. She told me.
He: I didn't quite say it, but I started saying it and now I don't know if I should finish saying it because she said it was okay and then hung up on me.
Pamie: I don't really have any advice, but I'd like to interject here that you two are officially the cutest couple in the world. This is the major problem in y'all's relationship. Consider yourselves very lucky.
Pamie: You really lo...mmm her?
He: I do.
Pamie: I'm hanging up with both of you. Call each other.
So, when they found out the title of this episode, they're wondering who over at the WB has been listening to their phone calls.
Previously on Gilmore Girls: despite all of our wishes, Lorelai went back to Mustang Max's house and did the mug-down. CuteDean took Rory out for dinner and then made her a car and then told her that he loves her and Rory just sat there and did nothing and so they broke up. I've missed him every second since.
We open at Luke's. Lorelai is finishing a story as Luke walks around tables, filling coffee mugs. She says that a magician ripped up her twenty-dollar bill while she was waiting in line for something, and he couldn't put it back together again, so he had to give her her money back in quarters. Rory yawns and says that was a great story. She says that she hasn't been sleeping well lately. Lorelai suggests that they play a game to wake Rory up; it's called "One, Two, Three." Lorelai decides to go first. Lorelai and Rory look out the diner window. "And...one!" Rory says. Close-up on an elderly man strolling by the window, looking back at Lorelai and Rory.
