Michel's done extensive research on designers, and presents Lorelai with a list of names. Lorelai skips a thank you and instead says she hopefully won't need them, as she thinks she just found the designer she wants. Michel says, "Well, good. I love doing research just for the sake of doing research. I live to grow." I love Michel. Burger Extra Boy update: he's seated just behind Michel, and has yet to take a bite out of that burger he's gesticulating with. Michel asks if Lorelai is still buying him lunch. Lorelai says she is, but she should probably take him somewhere else. Luke interrupts here to ask why. Lorelai says that Michel has very strict dietary needs. Michel says normally that's true, but every six months he gives himself a crazy day where he can eat anything he wants, and today's Crazy Day. He asks Luke about his chocolate cake. "Is it Mexican?" Luke: "Is what Mexican?" Michel: "The chocolate." Luke: "How would I know?" Michel: "It would say so on the wrapper. You could go look." Luke doesn't. (Burger Extra Boy just borrowed mustard for his bun!) Luke tells Lorelai to take Michel somewhere else. As Luke leaves, Michel asks him to bring back a donut, with sprinkles. Lorelai answers her cell phone. It's Emily, asking Lorelai if she knows about one of life's greatest mysteries -- if Lorelai will be coming for dinner each Friday night. As Emily nags Lorelai about not knowing the four letters R. S. V. and P, Lorelai desperately tries to get Luke's attention. Here you can see that Luke's got a wet, greasy spot on his back from the earlier attempts at this scene. Lorelai makes a noise, and Emily asks if that noise means that she's coming to dinner or that she's reading while Emily's talking. Lorelai grabs a napkin and bunches it, staring at Luke's back, while she tells Emily to just plan on Lorelai coming, and if she doesn't, then there will just be more food for everybody else. Oh, doesn't that solve everything? Lorelai tosses the napkin at Luke, but it just flitters off to the side. Luke's deep in a discussion with Caesar. The real Caesar, not that Spanish kid they had for one day. Lorelai picks up a butter knife and briefly debates tossing it at Luke. Heh. Emily says there's careful planning and preparation that goes into every meal. Not that Emily does any of it. Lorelai picks up some kind of muffin or sandwich and hurls it at Luke's back. Luke turns around to yell at Lorelai, who shoots him that winning smile to brag that she's on her cell phone in the diner. "Get off that phone!" Luke yells, pointing his finger. Lorelai tells Emily that she can't talk on the phone in the diner and has to go. She hangs up rudely, and then complains that Luke took too long when she needed him. Luke does a bit of a double take.
