Lorelai enters the diner, where Luke welcomes her as the "woman of the hour" and Lorelai tries not to snap back at him that she is the woman of the year at the very least. The "couple" share a weak hug that Lorelai initially tries to pull away from. Luke's uncharacteristic excitement comes from the fact that some travel magazine wants to do a cover story about the Dragonfly Inn. Luke has taken the liberty of looking up a bunch of the magazine's back issues and has some opinions about which of its staff should interview Lorelai. Frederick Fairmount, for example, talks more about himself than the person he's supposed to interviewing. Which, when combined with an interviewee who will talk more about herself than the Inn, would mean that approximately three words of the article will be devoted to the Inn. But it's a moot point, since Lorelai's pretty sure you don't get to chose your interviewer. ["That observation marks the beginning and end of Lorelai's comprehension about how journalism works." -- Wing Chun] Lorelai changes the subject to a new newspaper-covered hole in the diner window, which Luke blames on Taylor without going into specifics about it. Then he realizes that they're late for the town meeting, which he's suddenly eager to attend, despite never having expressed interest in a town meeting before.
The first order of business at this town meeting is that Kirk still doesn't have a place to live. Apparently, this is the entire town's problem, but there is no solution as Kirk rejects everyone's offers of places to stay for one reason or another. There is no resolution, and Taylor moves onto the second order of business: Old Man Twickham left the town his home in his will. Kirk asks whether Twickham's death bed is still available. At Luke's prompting, Taylor adds that the house and some of Twickham's stuff are to be made into a museum for two months. After that, the house will be "disposed of" at the discretion of the head of the historical society, who just happens to be Taylor. Luke makes a disappointed sound, and Taylor snaps at him. Luke apologizes, and Taylor says he would have liked to hear that apology earlier in the day when Luke tried to kill him. "What?!" says Lorelai, who is the only person with an appropriate reaction. Everyone else is just sitting there, like allegations of attempted murder are common in Stars Hollow. ["Since you don't watch the show, let me school you: when Taylor is involved, allegations of attempted murder are common in Stars Hollow." -- Wing Chun]
