Outside, Rory, Mia, and Lorelai leave the meeting together, talking about how upset Luke is. Lorelai says he'll calm down. Rory says she's going to go check on CuteDean because he's been scraping the chalk outline in front of Cardigan Man's store for two days now. Um, the garden hose that Jess stole from Fran's yard? Is that the only garden hose in all of Stars Hollow? Does that arts and crafts store some special kind of chalk that doesn't come up with water or soap and must be scraped away? And why is CuteDean working at this hour? Lorelai says that CuteDean can't work as quickly when Rory is attached to his face, but Rory leaves anyway. Mia tells Lorelai that she's having a great time, and that she's so proud of Lorelai and Rory. Lorelai tells Mia that she and Sookie want to open their own inn. She says she loves the Independence and they love Mia, but they feel like they need to do this. Mia isn't disappointed at all. She says she knew Lorelai wouldn't work for her forever, and that Sookie and Lorelai are very talented. She says she wants to help them in any way she can, and asks what the time frame is. Lorelai says they're just waiting for this perfect location to free up, and then it'll happen, and that she'll tell Mia as soon as she knows. So, basically, they're not moving on the place at all because they're waiting for Fran to die, but they don't know what Fran has in her will about the place. Why would she even tell Mia, when there's no real inn in their future? Mia asks Lorelai to bump things up and move faster on their own inn because now she can sell the Independence Inn. She says she gets offers all the time, but that she always turns them down because she didn't want to abandon Lorelai and Sookie and everyone, but now she doesn't have to worry about them anymore. Lorelai is upset, since she's going to lose the Inn, and she doesn't really have another inn yet; now Mia won't be her competition, but some big chain will be. She doesn't say any of that, though. Mia's very happy she finally gets mad cash and the Inn is off her back. Mia and Lorelai walk past the Official Town Troubadour as Daniel Palladino checks another "Character I Created Cameo" off his list.
