Meanwhile, Kirk has finished setting up a movie screen and projector for the evening's movie entertainment, and Lorelai gives the big introduction: "All right, girls. You're about to meet someone very special to me." She explains that Molly Ringwald was her generation's Audrey Hepburn, and that she knows they will love her. With that, they start Pretty in Pink, no doubt changing their lives forever.
Later, as Luke falls asleep on a cot downstairs, he hears the girls upstairs, playing light as a feather/stiff as a board.
The next day at the Dragonfly, Lorelai tells Sookie all about the party. They reminisce about the wonders of makeup at age thirteen. "Whatever happened to the questionably attractive glories of Wet 'n Wild blue eye shadow," Lorelai says, "or crimping irons?" Sookie runs down her favorites as well, remembering with special fondness the delicious taste of Bonne Belle Lipsmackers. "Well," Lorelai asks, "who doesn't love a lip gloss that doubles as a necklace? And they smelled so great." Sookie tells the horrible tale of a kid in her class who ate her chocolate fudge-flavored lipsmacker and then barfed it up all over her copy of The Red Badge Of Courage. Lorelai tells Sookie that she and April bonded over the great party, and that she hopes this means Luke will stop hiding her away from April. She says that Luke must really have needed all that time and space to get to know April and that, in hindsight, it was good for him: "And I'm really glad that I let him have it." Sookie says that Lorelai has been incredibly patient about the whole thing. "I was," Lorelai agrees. "Incredibly patient, while at the same time being incredibly impatient." Sookie: "You're a complicated woman." Lorelai admits that this is true, and hands off some leftover Lipsmackers, to Sookie's great delight. "I feel like I'm fifteen again," Sookie says, smearing it on. "Jackson is totally getting under my bra tonight!"
At the diner, Luke is dusting stray glitter off a customer's pancakes when Anna rages through the door. Luke takes her into the back, where she really lays into him, saying that he's betrayed her trust: he said he was going to throw April a party, and his girlfriend was the one who threw it. Luke is flabbergasted. He explains that Lorelai was just there to help out, but Anna is furious that Lorelai slept upstairs with the girls, and goes on and on, all "she's my kid" this, "I can't trust you" that, and Sherilynn Finn is so over-the-top I'd like to punch her in the neck. My favorite part is where she rants that April is not a sweater Luke is borrowing, and that he can't just treat her like one. Stupid, especially since it makes no sense, but if they'd write Luke any balls, he could have easily and calmly said that neither is April a sweater Anna is loaning. But Luke is nearly speechless, swearing that Anna can trust him, and she drama-queens all over the place, saying that she's too mad even to look at him right now, and stomping out. Ugh. Put Anna, Babette, Emily, and Taylor in a boxing ring and see how long it takes for one of them to outshrew the rest. Then take the winner and drown him or her in a sack in the lake.
