Sookie asks what Lorelai is doing. Lorelai starts going through the freezer, hoping there's something to tide the kids over for a little while. "I'm talking here!" Sookie yells, and Lorelai patronizes her, saying it's all going to be okay. Sookie says she knows it'll be fine, since she's been cooking all week long, made four different cakes before choosing this one, and is tired of Lorelai acting like she's an idiot: "You are supposed to plan the party and I'm supposed to do the cooking. That's the arrangement." Sookie says that the cake is incredible. "Not if you're an eight-year-old," Lorelai says. Sookie asks how she knows that. Lorelai says that she had an eight-year-old who knew other eight-year-olds, and that her taste right now is about the level of an eight-year-old's. Mine too. Sookie tells Lorelai that she can't just come in here and take over; that wasn't the arrangement. Sookie says that Lorelai is not the boss of her, and that they're supposed to be partners. She says she's a great chef, and that great chefs don't have kids decorate cupcakes. ["Dude, that's totally what I'm doing for my birthday this year." -- Wing Chun] A little girl walks in at this point and asks for a juice box. "Hey, we're talking here!" Sookie screams at her. Close-up on the little girl's face as her mouth points down and she starts to cry. Three episodes this season, and two of them have had this same shot. "Oh, yeah," Lorelai says, rushing to the fridge. "What's the matter with her?" Sookie asks. "Is she sick? Why is her mouth open?" Lorelai hands the little girl a juice box and talks to her about grape flavoring. I'm surprised she doesn't mention bikini waxes again, or perhaps dildos. The little girl, placated, goes back to join her friends. Sookie looks as scared as the little girl as Lorelai says that she didn't mean to take over like that. She felt a crisis coming on and snapped into crisis-solving mode. "I can't do this," Sookie says. She doesn't mean catering; she means parenting. Sookie says that she made that little girl make that face: "This is not right. This is all wrong. I don't want to be pregnant anymore!" Sookie storms out of the room. Lorelai asks if she's planning on walking it off.
