The tea party (what time is this tea party? Good God, let the children sleep!) is a total bust because Lorelai hasn't shown up with anything. It's confusing that Lorelai would be supplying everything needed for a tea party the morning (evening?) of the tea party (is it Sunday?), and that there's nothing -- including food -- for these girls. Michel is staying out of the way. Sookie tells him to go entertain the girls. "Like I'm SpongeBoy BigPants or something? I do not entertain children." Sookie says Lorelai left yesterday to run an errand, and then never came back. And that's different than her managerial style any other day...how? Michel suggests a parlor game: poke out all the dolls' eyes and let the girls try to match the eyeballs up with the dolls. Sookie leaves to check Lorelai's house. One of the little girls asks Michel to kiss her doll's boo-boo. Michel asks which part of the doll is the boo-boo.
Rory's asleep on Logan's couch. The game is still going on, although I'm not sure if it's afternoon, what with the tea going on...aw, forget it. Rory answers her boxy cell phone. It's Sookie, with an alarming tone, telling Rory to come home right away because Lorelai's in bad shape. It's not like Lorelai got into a car accident, but Sookie makes it sound that way. Rory immediately sets to leave, but she doesn't have her car because it's in the shop at the dealer, even though they rip you off, so Logan gives her access to his driver, Frank. These kids really have a lot of money.
Rory runs into the house. Sookie's resting on the couch. Rory: "Where is she?" Sookie: "Upstairs." Rory: "Okay, I got it from here, Sookie." Fuck off, Sookie. Don't let the door hit your pregnant ass on the way out. See ya. Thanks for nothing. Bye. Get out. Leave. She's Just Not a Good Friend: Dealing With a Gilmore Girl.
Rory finds Lorelai crying in bed. "Luke," Lorelai says. "He's gone. He hates me. I blew it. I blew everything." She says she should have told him about Christopher. Rory says that was innocent. Lorelai: "But I should have told him. I hid it. I shouldn't have hid it." She then blames Emily, and says that the town all hates her and they're putting up ribbons because they hate her. She says she pushed Luke and now he's gone. Rory: "He waited forever for you. He's not just going to walk away." Man, these girls think highly of themselves. The whole town hates her. Luke would never leave after wasting his entire life, including a marriage waiting on Lorelai to finally have the time for him. "It's over," Lorelai says. Rory says it isn't like Lorelai to lie in bed crying like this. Lorelai tells her to go back to school. Rory says she's staying. Lorelai cries and says she screwed up. Rory tries to soothe her. "He could have been the one," Lorelai says. Rory tells her that Luke will come around, and that Lorelai should try to sleep.
