A FEW things about this scene: 1) Why would Sookie, a professional caterer, who has been going on and on about catering Lorelai's wedding for many episodes, even going so far as to create the most insanely stunning cake and implying that it was a practice cake for Lorelai's wedding, not be catering and/or making the cake for Lorelai's wedding? 2) Why do they have to write Sookie so wacky/strident? 3) That whole notion of the groom not being interested in his wedding planning is dumb and I hate it.
In any case, Lane comes by to refill coffee, and tells Luke that his turkey melt is up, effectively breaking up what was about to become a throwdown between Sookie and Luke. Lane gloomily asks what they're working on, and when they tell her it's wedding planning, she flatly responds: "I guess there'll be cake." Lorelai says it's nice to know that her own outlook on life is sunnier than a twenty-one-year-old's, but Sookie can't stop with the wedding. She tries to nail down a potential date for the wedding, running through the list of town goofs that can't be there due to conflicts. Michel, for example, is busy every Saturday until February, having signed up for Booty Boot Camp. There are a few other townie conflicts, but what Luke hears and becomes enraged about is that Lulu, Kirk's girlfriend, may already have plans for late May. Luke tries to insert that he won't be moving wedding plans around for people he hardly knows, and Sookie shoots him down yet again. I have never been so happy for a scene to be over.
Especially since the next scene involves Paris. She's giving Rory the tour of the apartment building in which they will now reside. I have a hard time believing that such a crap place exists mere moments from Yale's campus, but then again, I have never been there. I'm not even smart enough to enter the city limits of the town where such a school is located. Paris reports that the lady in 5 steals mail, and that they have named the guys in 6 The Chili Cheese Boys, and to "take that description at face value." She doesn't know who is in 7, she says, "because meeting 5 and 6 was enough It Takes A Village for me." They then arrive at their place, 8. "8 is great," Rory says with a scared look on her face as Paris runs down the procedure for unlocking the door. There are about five deadbolts on it, and a complicated system of unlocking and kicking is necessary to open it. Rory is trying not to freak, and is reassured by Paris that the neighborhood is only as scary as you make it: "Those guys downstairs? They just look deadly. Believe me, they don't bother you if you don't bother them. When you have guests over, just tell them they're a doo-wop group."
