Emily knocks on Richard's door. "We need to talk," she says as she walks in. Fade to opening credits.
Luke's. Lane tells Luke that the man at table three wants to send an orange juice to the woman at table four. "As long as he's paying," Luke says. He leans into Liz's face and says, "If someone who wants to eat comes in here..." Liz says she'll leave her counter seat if that happens. Lorelai walks in and says hello. Quite loudly, Lane announces that there's a potential hook-up at table four. Lorelai says that diner romances give new meaning to the term "over easy." So does Rory. Hello! Lorelai and Liz give each other a hug that looks like they're kind of pushing each other away. Liz says she just cruised in. She tells Lorelai she's really jazzed about the Luke and Lorelai thing, and that she wants "private details." So that's how it is in their family. Luke tells Lorelai not to tell his sister anything. Lorelai asks if that means she can't tell Liz about Luke's Canadian Mountie hat.
Liz tells Lorelai that she and T.J. are thinking about buying a winter home in Stars Hollow. NO! That means wintertime Jess! Luke wants his sister to move to Stars Hollow even less than I do. Liz says that some of the stores around Stars Hollow will sell her jewelry on consignment. Well, that ought to be enough cash to pay the mortgage, huh? How much do turquoise earrings net you these days? Liz asks Lorelai how much she paid for her house. Why not ask the girl's weight and age, while you're at it, Liz? Luke tells his sister she can't ask people questions like that, and instructs Lorelai not to answer it. He tells Liz she doesn't want to live in Stars Hollow, and that it's too quiet for her. Liz says she likes quiet. Luke: "You do not like quiet. T.J. does not like quiet. He likes monster trucks and baboons that get really mad at the zoo." Liz says that's true. Lorelai tells Luke he'll like living so close to his family. Luke remarks on how well that's been going for Lorelai.
Luke asks Lorelai for her order. She says that nothing looks good. He says he'll make her a burger. Lorelai says she doesnt want a burger. Liz tells Luke to make his gumbo, which is apparently incredible: "And great Mexican food." With homemade tortillas. And something called "garlic soup," which I think I'll stay away from. Luke interrupts Liz when she starts telling stories of her brother trying to find the perfect lasagna recipe. Liz says she has to go meet the realtor. She pronounces it "real-a-tor," which always drives me crazy. Liz leaves, and Lorelai complains to Luke that he's been holding out on her with his great food and amazing culinary skills. The man makes you food three times a day, Lorelai. Luke says he has many talents. Lorelai says she knows, what with the way he keeps his Mountie hat perfectly balanced on his head, even when they're... Luke interrupts, and warns her to stop thinking about the Mountie hat, before she forgets that there isn't one. Lorelai wants proof that Luke can cook these foods. Luke immediately takes up the challenge and says he's going to cook Lorelai the most amazing meal of her life. Hey, is the word "amazing" in every script? I know I've said it before, but I stopped looking for it, and I think maybe it is. Lorelai asks for it this weekend. Luke says if she stops making the Mountie jokes, she's on. Lorelai says it's a deal and asks for a muffin. That's right, it's still breakfast time. And he was going to make her a burger? Luke can tell that Lorelai is still picturing the Mountie hat on Luke's head. He asks how he looks. "I'll tell you this weekend," she says, and leaves.
