There's a party of sorts going on at Lorelai's. Luke comes in to find her entertaining the construction guys with her Daniel Day-Lewis retrospective. "You should see her rendition of My Left Foot," one of the guys says. Luke is not at all amused: "Yeah, I've seen it. Thanks." But no, Lorelai says, she's switched it up and now does it with her right foot. Totally different! Luke is even less amused to see Paul Anka's new trick. Lorelai: "Pizza!" Paul Anka: "Bark!" Lorelai: "Pizza Pizza!" Paul Anka: "Bark Bark!" Lorelai: "Salad." Paul Anka: "[Total silence.]" It is pretty cute, I must say, but I am a sucker for dogs. When Lorelai goes to the kitchen to get more treats, a petulant Luke reminds her that the guys are there to work, and that Lorelai is not required to give them a USO show. She says she knows; she just wants them to have a good time. I'm sure they are having a good time, actually, since they seem to be there twenty-four hours a day, which must mean she and Luke are paying them double and triple time, or something, for which they'll be willing to watch that dog do any number of tricks. Anyway, as Luke points out, "Half of them have seen you naked. How much more fun can they have?" Tom's in the kitchen, drawing up plans for real work, so Luke pointedly asks whether other clients feed their construction crews pizza and beer to win them over. "Nope," Tom says. "'Course, the 'naked thing' has been done to death." I love Tom. He goes on to ask what they'd like to "do" with the kitchen during all this remodeling, and is met by Lorelai's blank stares as he lists of innumerable options for islands and stools and counter space. "This strange man is scaring me," she says to Luke, who assures Tom that the kitchen is fine.
