Lorelai makes a quick exit on this, only to run into Michel. He asks what Luke is doing making repairs at the Inn, when they have a handyman, Parker, employed for that reason. Lorelai says that's true, but that Luke offered and, wink-wink, "the price was right." Michel gets his bitch on -- or should I say his beetch? -- and smart-assedly comments about Luke's price. "Well," Lorelai says, "I did have to give him a coupon for a hundred free snuggles. Parker always kind of turned up his nose at my snuggle bucks." Michel is not amused. He says that if the Inn is going to start hiring non-professionals to do the work there, maybe they can hire his cousin to do accounting. "She's got her own calculator," he says. Lorelai says it's not like Luke is doing open-heart surgery -- he's fixing a few things and saving them money. Michel snits that Luke's not doing a good job, and Lorelai suggests that Michel tell Luke what he wants. Michel says it would be absurd for him to follow Luke around, correcting his every mistake. "We will sit down and make a detailed list of everything we need done," he says, "and he can consult that." Though this is a good suggestion, Lorelai says that Luke does not need a list; he has a sixth sense about things that need to be fixed. Michel once again expresses his lack of confidence in this method, and says that he'll do a walk-through with Luke. Lorelai repeats that Luke has it covered, and that it won't be necessary. Yes, Controlelai, be sure to manage everyone's every thought and move when it comes to Luke, who has reached the stage of curmudgeonlihood that you fear he won't be able to have a conversation with another human being.
