(Luke walks into the inn with his toolbox) Lorelai: Oh, thank god. You brought Bert. Luke: Right here. Lorelai: My men! Follow me. Luke: By the way, you do tell people that you're the one who named my toolbox, right? Lorelai: (chuckles) Toolbox. Dirty. Luke: Jeez!
(Luke's diner. Lorelai is sitting at the counter) Lorelai: Hey Luke, ah, I feel a little weird even mentioning this to you. Luke: What? Lorelai: Well, yesterday I saw you talking to Eva, you know, she's in my Booster Club? Luke: Yeah, I know who she is. Lorelai: (slightly annoyed) Oh, good, well, good. So, anyhow, I saw you guys talking alone, and it seemed kind of private and she mentioned earlier that you didn't make her, you know, gag. So, I just figured you guys were making some sort of plans to hang out and, see, the thing is, I just think it would be a little weird if you started dating a Chilton mom. Look, I know I have no right to say anything to you, but it's just, ahm, if you did date her, I'm in the Booster Club with her, which means that I'll hear things and, I don't know, it's just I'd like to keep that Chilton life seperate from my Stars Hollow life. So, if there's any way that you could not date her, that would be really great. Luke: Boy, I tell you you've got nerve! Lorelai: Okay, well, I know this is your private business. Luke: It is my private business. Lorelai: You don't see any validity to my side at all? Luke: I am a grown man. You cannot tell me who to date. Lorelai: I'm not telling you who to date, I'm telling you who not to date. Luke: You can't tell me that either. Lorelai: Look- Luke: I will date who I like and if that screws with your plans then sorry! And if you don't wanna hear things, don't listen! Lorelai: But- Luke: If you don't like it you can just deal with it. Lorelai: Okay, I'll just deal with it. Luke: Good! Lorelai: I just thought that if something was going to affect our friendship in some way that you might care about that, because if the situation was reversed then I would care, but hey! That's me. So, go ahead! Date her. Marry her. Make her Mrs. Backwards Baseball Cap. Live happily ever after! See if I care! (upset, she turns around to leave) Luke: And by the way, I wasn't asking her out. I was giving her directions for the quickest way back to Hartford. It was very romantic. I said you take a right at Deerfield, and you catch the I-5 and you take it south. Oh man, hot stuff. Lorelai: (very embarrassed but stubbornly trying to hide it) That is so typical of you! Luke: What? Lorelai: That is not the quickest way back to Hartford. Everybody knows that you take Maine to Cherry to Lynwood and then grab the I-11. Everybody knows that Luke. Everybody, apparently, but you! (She exits and leaves a smiling Luke behind)
