Luke's. Lorelai's sitting with the designer, so it's Friday now. She's pulled together four tables to chat with Traci Elizabeth Lords, who starts the scene with her mouth open, and then proceeds to over-enunciate her way right out of your heart. But man, she had to have known that they were starting her out with a joke. She hands Lorelai a book about castles of Ireland and says, "There's a room in here that I've always wanted to do." Hee! Luke walks over and asks what they're doing. He's just now noticed them? Luke's only has about ten tables. Lorelai brags that she's looking at Anaglypta wallpaper. Lorelai introduces Traci Elizabeth Lords as Natalie Zimmerman. It's not really a shout-out that she shares my sister's name, right? Great. Lorelai tells Luke that she's so excited that the inn is going to have horses. "The property already has stables," Traci Lords informs us, "so why not?" Because it's a hotel? Lorelai blabbers on about how much she loves horses and has always wanted them since she was a little girl. She says she finally has an excuse to buy a pony. Traci Lords flashes a scary smile. Luke calls Lorelai "National Velvet" and tells her she's got to get out of there, because people can't sit at the table. "This is business!" Lorelai scolds. Luke informs her that she's actually seated inside his business, and his business would like its seats back. Lorelai waves him away and apologizes to Traci Lords, saying that Luke is trying to steal the "World's Grumpiest Diner Guy" title away from Mel. There's some unimportant chatter here about Anaglypta wallpaper. Traci Lords says that Emily has some in her upstairs guest bathroom. Sound of needle scratching record. Lorelai turns into some kind of fairy tale wicked witch, wanting to know who should utter that woman's name in her presence. As much as she knew that Traci Lords had done a lot of people, she really hates the fact that Traci Lords has already done her mom. Traci Lords smiles and says it's a small world. Lorelai says the world is about as small as the box they threw McCain in. I said she was a wicked witch; the jokes, they simply agree with me. But the best is the look that Traci Lords gives Lorelai after the joke, pausing for a really long time because she's sure it's a joke but she doesn't get it, so she's not sure what kind of face to register, so she opts for a frozen half-grin that looks mostly terrified, but you can see in her eyes she's counting to three.
