Luke keeps working. Lorelai takes a sip of coffee. Cue the tears. Tears! "This is the second time I let myself do this," Lorelai starts. Luke grimaces into space; he's totally not interested in standing there someone to listen to Lorelai (which to her is a total best friend, someone who doesn't talk and just listens? What could be better?). Lorelai moans and complains that she keeps thinking she's found The One, only to find out that he's not. She thought Max was The Best Thing Ever, only to run away at the altar because she realized she Hardly Knew Him, he Was Creepy and Had Hairy Salami Nipples. Also, she was trapped in a Complicated Plot Twist that wasn't Resolving Easily and needed Something Interesting To Happen. Then she thought that Christopher was going to be The One, but that was Pointless and Too Easy and Not Luke. Luke says it's tough when the universe is against you: "That's like taking on the Manhattan Garbage Union." Um...huh? Lorelai said she was just waiting for Christopher to get it together and grow up then he'd be perfect. The pot goes on to say that the kettle finally became a real man and now he's going to be that guy with another family that's not her and some trashy whore gets to have the man that's supposed to be her husband because they had sex when they were kids. Lorelai cries all over the counter, saying that she hates admitting it because she considers herself to be a Wonder Woman, but she really does want the whole get married/ have kids/ get a dog/ wear jogging suits wonderland that everybody says they want. She wants the whole package and doesn't know if she'll ever have it. Luke points out that Lorelai's life doesn't really suck that hard, since she has a house, a job, and a kid. Lorelai's like, "Yeah, yeah, great kid, whatever." Lorelai says it's not that bad, and that she knows she's lucky, but she feels like she's never going to have the whole package -- the couple life she hates admitting she wants. Luke slides a doughnut down to Lorelai. "You'll get it," he says. "How do you know?" Lorelai asks. Luke: "I know." Lorelai: "How do you know?" Luke: "I know, okay? I know." We all know. Everybody knows. My cat knows. We know! Lorelai says she's not hungry, so Luke tells her to take the day-old doughnut with her because she'll be hungry in two minutes. Lorelai wraps it in a napkin and puts it into her purse. Luke thinks she's gone into her purse for money (Ha!) and tells her to forget it: "First-time customers are on the house. MeMe, was it?" Lorelai says yes. "Come again, MeMe," he says. "Thanks. I will. This seems like a very nice place," Lorelai says. She leaves. LHCD. Luke stares.
