The following forced dialogue follows. Rory: "What's up?" Lorelai: "I don't know. Sookie must be sick or something." Rory: "Sookie never gets sick." Lorelai: "She'll be fine." Lorelai asks what's going on with Paris, and Rory gives her a recap. She says that with the way Paris is acting, Rory now wants to enter the contest, win, and then dance around Paris chanting, "I win! I win! I win!" Lorelai tells Rory she's getting more and more like Lorelai every day. She hands Rory the Kit Kat. Rory says she knows she's being stupid and that she should probably just ignore Paris. Lorelai says that's what she should do. She asks why Rory isn't entering the contest, when she loves doing school things. Rory goes completely out of character to say she doesn't love doing school things when it involves having the entire school stare at her while she talks. We've only seen her give speeches and debates every season since year one, right? Lorelai reminds Rory that a person who wants to be a foreign correspondent for a living should probably feel comfortable speaking in public. Rory says she was with her until Lorelai called them "speechin' skillz." Rory says she'll do the speech, and if she gets to do the dance, it'll be even better. Alexis Bledel keeps taking a breath in the middle of her lines during this scene. In a moment that proves I'm just not girly enough, Lorelai types a few keys on her keyboard, stops for a second, stares into the air. She places a hand on Rory and says, "Oh, my God." She then runs from behind the desk towards the kitchen, where Sookie is already standing. "You're pregnant!" Lorelai screeches. Sookie screeches "Pregnant" at the same time. They jump in place and celebrate. I have no idea how they did that. At first, I figured Sookie had emailed it to Lorelai, and she had checked her email and Sookie was keeping it a surprise until Lorelai read the doctor's something-or-other. Then I thought maybe Sookie and Lorelai had some strange way to send each other messages. But I never put the food thing with the pregnant thing, and I still don't know how they both figured it out at the same time. This is because I'm not very good at being a girl. The three girls screech and squeal until crows swoop down, cawing in response.
