Sookie and her merry pack of extras surround a table in her kitchen. Sookie is "beyond offended" that someone has sent back an entire order of food. Lorelai asks what's going on. Sookie says they need a better screening system for customers. Lorelai says that any system would be better, since they currently don't screen customers at all. Sookie can't believe her four-star food was sent back. One was too salty, one was too hot, and one was "too sewery." Lorelai concludes that some people are just stupid. Sookie agrees: "And stupid people have stupid friends and they all have to come here and be stupid together." Lorelai asks if there's anything wrong with the food. Sookie is outraged, saying that everybody has tasted everything and everything is absolutely fine. The extra over Sookie's shoulder gives it away by practically looking away and whistling. The other extras all start hemming and hawing, all eyeballs and shoulder shrugs, until Lorelai takes the food, which is indeed too sewery. She tells the waiter to send the table out free desserts ("Too bacon-y!") and then pulls Sookie aside. Lorelai tells Sookie that she loves her and loves her food, but she just tasted one of the worst things she's ever tasted. "And I've tasted some very bad things," she adds. She asks if Sookie accidentally dropped strychnine or manure into the food. Sookie says that she tasted everything at every step of the way. Lorelai asks if Sookie's sick, since a cold or flu can throw off your tastebuds. Sookie says she had a bug last week, but she's fine today. Lorelai tells Sookie to get a check-up: "Maybe it was more than a little bug." Sookie asks if the food was really that bad. Lorelai says it was and tells her to have Manuel help her with tasting for the rest of the night. Rory pouts in, complaining that Paris is driving her insane. "Ooh, that looks good!" she says, walking towards the sewery concoction. "NO!" the entire crowd of extras says en masse, lurching forward to stop Stars Hollow's Princess from accidentally suffering for a nanosecond. "Be happy you're loved, hon," Lorelai says, holding Rory protectively and backing her away from the food, promising a Kit Kat in her purse.
