Lorelai overcompliments Paris, saying that something seems different about her, and Paris says it must be the gasoline she accidentally sprayed on herself on the way over. She's all flustered after interviewing potential roommates, none of which meet her standards: "All I can say is, build an ark, because it is seriously time for a flood." She snaps off the head of a waiter trying to serve her tea, and Lorelai points out that she sounds really busy. "I am," Paris says, and Lorelai passive-aggressively says that she feels really bad for "making" Paris drive all the way out to have these lunches with her. "Talk about self-centered, huh?" Lorelai says, pointing to herself in mock self-mocking. "Think about someone else for a change, Lorelai." GOOD IDEA. She goes on to say that she'll be totally fine if Paris has to cut back on these lunches, and Paris sighs. She wouldn't even have to be dealing with this, she says, if Rory were going back to Yale, and reveals that she talked to Rory about it just yesterday. Lorelai looks struck at the mention of Paris's talking to her daughter, and Paris says that she had called Rory at her office. "'Office'?!" Lorelai asks, shocked. Paris says, yes, she called Rory at "some job at an office with her grandmother." Lorelai is further shocked: "Well, her grandmother does not have an office. This makes no sense to me at all." She starts a game of Twenty Questions with Paris about the office, wanting to know details, and Paris finally gets pissed, unfairly accusing Lorelai of just having these lunches to pump Paris for information about Rory. Lorelai goes overboard the other way, apologizing profusely, saying it isn't true and that she loves their lunches. She ends up begging Paris to stay when it is the last thing on Earth she wants to do, and Paris grudgingly does so after insulting the food and the service. Congrats, Lorelai. Wouldn't want this girl who gets on your nerves anyway to be mad at you.
Rory is performing the essential community service of moving the needle on the record at a retirement-home dance. She compliments them on their dance moves and makes sure that no one gets too handsy with his or her dance partner. Suddenly, Logan returns from wherever the hell he's been that I don't care about. Okay, he's been in Europe with his dumb friends. He kisses her too forwardly, and one of her charges tells Rory to "watch those hands." Thus ends the cuteness of the scene. They kiss again, or something. I don't know, because I put my head in the oven.
