Luke's. Lorelai enters and asks what's going on. Luke pulls out a pile of messages that he's taken for Lorelai while she was gone. Insanely rude, I know. But that's our Lorelai. Luke screams that he's not taking messages for Lorelai anymore. Lorelai begins quietly apologizing. Luke asks if she has business cards printed up. Lorelai says that people know she's there a lot. It's called a cell phone, Lor. Use it. Luke says he missed a call from his meat guy because he was on the phone discussing a particular horse's deviated septum. Lorelai says she'll call all of those people today and tell them to never call her at Luke's ever again. Lorelai asks if a package arrived for her today. "Wha-- what?" Luke scoffs, and Lorelai quickly apologizes. Some guy named Ed leans in and politely tells Luke that he's "cutting it kinda close." Luke flips out on poor Ed, saying he had no idea how close Ed was cutting it today. He yells for everyone to drop everything, since Ed is cutting it kind of close. He tosses some tickets at Ed. "You seem mad," Ed says. Luke tells Ed to enjoy the game, and to choke on a hot dog while he's at it. Ed: "I have to tell you, Luke. I am never accepting anything free from you again." Hee. Luke follows Ed to the door, calling him a real master of fear. He screams out the door for Jason and Freddy to look out, now that ol' Ed is on the loose.
Luke slams the door, and Lorelai asks what is wrong with him. "Ed bugs me," Luke grumps. "Ed cries!" Lorelai says. Luke says he's having a bad day.
