Cardigan Man storms into the diner and announces that he needs to talk to Luke. He's done a thorough investigation of the prank and has concluded that Jess most likely did it. He's a quick one, that Cardigan Man, I tell ya. Luke, of course, doesn't think that Jess did it. Lorelai explains to Mia that the town is too boring to have a real murder, so they had a fake one. Rory tells Lorelai that she's just one "Beam me up, Scotty" reference away from making a real one happen. Cardigan Man says that three people saw Jess out that night skulking and lurking. Another person saw Jess walking out of an Arts and Crafts store carrying something that appeared to be chalk. Couldn't Cardigan Man go one step further and ask the Arts and Crafts store guy what Jess bought? And how does someone spot chalk in a bag? Cardigan Man asks Luke what he's going to do about all of this. Luke says he's not going to do anything. Cardigan Man says that he speaks for the Stars Hollow Business Association, the Stars Hollow Tourist Board, the Stars Hollow Neighborhood Watch Organization, and the Stars Hollow Citizens for a Clean Stars Hollow Council. Luke: "All of which are you." Luke says that he's going to pretend Cardigan Man never came around. Cardigan Man warns Luke that there are going to be a lot of unhappy people at the S.H.B.A., the S.H.T.B., the S.H.N.W.O. and the S.H.C.C.S.H.C. Luke counters, "F.I.N.E." Cardigan Man grumbles and growls and gives a good double fist-shaking complete with a "Why, I oughta!" and walks away. He stops when he sees Mia. He says hi and she says it's nice to see him. He walks out the door. Mia says she can't get action like this in Santa Barbara. "I miss the small-town theater," she says. Um, have you ever been to Santa Barbara? It's small-town, and I got an eyeful of strange theater while I was there. Mia reminds Lorelai that it's almost been exactly fifteen years since Lorelai showed up with Rory in her arms and asked for a job. Mia says that Lorelai had no experience, recommendations or skills, but that she had a "who cares" look in her eyes, so Mia gave her a job. She says the other maids hated her. Lorelai moans that they were so slow. Rory and Lorelai moan that Mia doesn't come around enough and that they miss her. Mia says she's not needed. The Inn is running very well and is practically Lorelai's inn now. She says she'd be lost without her. Rory and Lorelai get all guilty until we go to commercial.
