Rory and Lorelai leave as a "guy in a suit" shows up at the dinner. Luke is prompted to say "goody." He's Russell Bynes, and he's with Blodgett, Sage, Albet, Petruchio, Stein, Lemming and Stein. (Petruchio is the name of the male lead in Taming of the Shrew. Sage is the name of my family dog.) "And the sun just went down," Luke grumps. He says he only wanted to know where he should sign, and that it didn't require a visit. Mr. Bynes says there isn't a place to sign because this is just a document informing him of the type of action being filed. "Didn't you read the papers?" Mr. Bynes asks. Luke gives Mr. Bynes a rundown of today's newspaper: "I didn't kill anyone. Nicole and I just accidentally got married and now we want out." Maybe he should call Nicole. "We both want the same thing," Luke insists. The lawyer tells Luke not to "play" him. Luke doesn't want to talk anymore, and Mr. Bynes says he should only be dealing with Luke's legal representation anyway, and that Luke's refusal to give Mr. Bynes Luke's lawyer's information will only prolong the process. Luke asks if Mr. Bynes will leave once he gets the lawyer's name. Mr. Bynes says he will, and produces a pen. Luke tells the oldest lawyer joke in the world -- "Dewey, Cheatem and Howe." This joke so old that the punchline is "And how!" -- a phrase we haven't said since people picked up the phone and said, "Operator? Get me 294 Beacon!" Aces, Johnny. Aces! Mr. Bynes calls Luke immature, and says his bosses are going to want to hear about this. Luke says he's sure Mr. Bynes's bosses have heard that joke before. He then gives Mr. Bynes his lawyer's phone number (555-5555). The lawyer leaves, but Lorelai returns, holding up the stick diagram. "Nothing's where it says it is," she whines. Luke turns the napkin upside down. I hope Cesar gets hit in the face with a cream pie next!
