While Logan is processing this, Lane arrives with pfTL. Rory introduces Lane as her "best friend," and Lane sizes up Logan with an appreciative nod. pfTL and Logan awkwardly shake hands as they all receive their Rory drinks. Lane is excited. "Wait until you see the bathroom," Rory tells her, embarrassed. "The guest soap has my face on it."
Lorelai and Luke walk up to the house, Luke saying that this might be his least favorite door in the world to knock on. "What about Death's door?" Lorelai asks. He says that the reception on the other side of that door might be warmer. Good one, Luke. He's quite right. When Emily sees them, Rories in hand, she frosts over, saying that because she didn't know Luke was coming, he'll have to share a chocolate box with Lorelai. "Fat chance," Lorelai says, mumbling to Luke, "Mom orders really good chocolate." Emily notices that Luke doesn't appear to like his drink, and when he jokes about its being awfully pink, tells him that no one is asking him to wear it: "It's not a skirt." Hilarious. Listen, somebody, speaking of Luke wearing things -- I know I said I like woodsy Luke better than dressed-up Luke, and that is true. But, if you're going to MAKE him wear a suit, have him shave. I mean, one or the other. Unshaven, suited Luke is leaning back in a direction we don't want to go, and that direction involves Firebird T-tops. Luke cringes when he is forced to take a sip of the Rory drink, saying that it tastes like a My Little Pony.
