At the Inn the next day, or some other day, Sookie is revealing the wedding cake she has made for the upcoming wedding at the Inn. It is...unbelievable. Lorelai and I both gasp as if confronted with an angel from Heaven itself. "What is that?" Lorelai asks. "And where can I get one?" Sookie calls it her "dark chocolate s'mores wedding cake." Lorelai: "You've been reading my diary." Exactly. The cake -- which could feed at least six hundred guests -- came to Sookie in a dream in which she was running late for a final in cooking school and opened the oven to find the cake, causing her classmates and professors to weep. "Then, of course, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes come leaping out of the cake screaming about how AMAZING it is," she says, sadly, "so that made the whole thing a little creepy." Sookie asks Lorelai if she thinks the bride and groom will like the cake. Lorelai says that they will, of course. Sookie: "Well...do you think you'll like it?" Lorelai rolls her eyes at this attempt to wheedle a wedding date out of her. "Look, Captain Ahab," she starts (though I do not get the reference to Moby Dick at all, and feel stupid as a result), but Sookie interrupts: "Agreeing to marry somebody is just as big a commitment as actually marrying them, so don't think it's not." Pushy, Sookie, but true. Lorelai says again that she is committed, and it's clear that she's losing her patience. Sookie says she just wants Lorelai's wedding to be perfect; otherwise she wants nothing to do with it. "Oh, really?" Lorelai says. "Because I was hoping for one of those disastrous weddings where we lose both rings minutes before the ceremony, and I get a nosebleed walking down the aisle, and then later, at the reception, Luke is found in the coat-check room, Jude Lawing it with one of the bridesmaids." We don't have time to laugh at this, because Michel comes in to let them know that the wedding party has called to say they won't be arriving until midnight, and someone will have to be there to greet them: "I would do it, but I don't want to." Lorelai says she'll do it. Suddenly, Michel says he is aware of an evil presence. He hums the Wicked Witch theme from The Wizard of Oz before they finally catch on that Paris has arrived. Sookie is pissed, but Lorelai assures her that, today, she is cutting things off with Paris. Good thing, too, because as Lorelai goes out to meet her, the wait staff flood into the kitchen like scared little children.
