Later, still at the diner, April is having a blast opening her presents, and soon gets to Luke's. He bites his nails, now worrying about the toiletry kit, but when April opens the present, it's a copy of this book, with a gift certificate to a store she likes. She is thrilled, and jumps up to hug Luke, telling him she loves it. He happily thanks Lorelai for pulling one over on him. Lorelai suggests kicking the party up yet another notch -- turning it into a sleepover -- and when he puts the question to April, she squeals with delight all over again. All the girls leap onto their cell phones to get permission before Luke can even organize a single-file line for the landline. In all the activity, Lorelai says she's going to take off, but Luke begs her to stay: "April would want that." Lorelai looks happy, and agrees.
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!"
