Gigi is sitting on the a bag on the front porch. Lorelai walks out to her.

LORELAI
Okay sweetie what do we say to mommy when we see her at the airport.

GIGI
Bonjour!

Chris walks out with luggage.

LORELAI
"Bonjour, mama! What's the haps?" I don't know the French word for "haps." 
(to Chris)
Passports?

CHRISTOPHER
Got 'em. 
(to Gigi)
Sweetie even after we meet up with mommy, we're gonna stay whit you all day, okay?

LORELAI
All day you will not be able to shake us.
(to Chris)
Cash?

CHRISTOPHER
Check.

LORELAI
Confusing shorthand.

CHRISTOPHER
Check -- I've got cash.

LORELAI
Thank you.

Christopher bring the luggage to the car.

GIGI
Will there be food on the plane?

LORELAI
There will be food, but airplane food is one of life's cruel jokes, so, just in case, we have snacks up the whazoo.
(to Chris)
Are you sure the departure's 3:30? Why did I think it was later?

CHRISTOPHER
3:30-ish.

LORELAI
That's what it says on the ticket? "Departure 3:30-ish"?

CHRISTOPHER
Oh, it doesn't matter. Traffic this time of day's impossible.

LORELAI
All right, honey. Let's go.

Chris comes out with the last suitcase.

CHRISTOPHER
You choose a trip to France to start using free weights?

LORELAI
Those are my shoes -- of course it's heavy. You teach them and teach them, but they never learn, do they, Gigi? Why do I feel like the departure was 6:15?

Lorelai carries Gigi's bag and the both walk to the car.

EXT. STARS HOLLOW: LORELAI'S HOUSE, FRONT YARD - DAY

CHRISTOPHER
Let's go.

LORELAI
Now, Gigi, You are gonna love Paris. You know, they call it "the city of love."

GIGI
Why?

LORELAI
Why? Well, because it's romantic, and there's just love everywhere. Of course, there's also pigeons everywhere, but nobody would want to visit the city of pigeons, now would they?

Lorelai puts Gigi's setbelt on.

CHRISTOPHER
I think we're ready.

LORELAI
Are you gonna tell me what time this flight actually leaves?

CHRISTOPHER
Soon.

LORELAI
Your daddy is very vague, Gigi.

Christopher and Lorelai get into the car.

CHRISTOPHER
How cool is it that we're going to France? You're going to have such a good time staying in Paris.

LORELAI
I am green with envy. Am I green?

CHRISTOPHER
It's more of a teal.

LORELAI
Well it goes great with my eyes. Driver, take us to France! Au revoir, house!

GIGI
Au revoir, house!

CHRISTOPHER
We're pretty low on gas. Gonna have to stop and get some.

LORELAI
Honey how do we have time to stop for gas?

CHRISTOPHER
Our flight's not for 3 1/2 hours.

LORELAI
Oh!

Christopher laugs.

LORELAI
We knew it, Gigi, Didn't we? Gigi And I knew it.

INT. NEW HAVEN: YALE UNIVERSITy, NEWSROOM - DAY

Bill is pouring everyone drinks.

BILL
So, as your newly elected editor in chief, it is my great honor to... honor...

SHEILA
okay.

BILL
... the stepping down...

RAJ
"stepping down."

A.K.
Eloquent.

BILL
... Of our former leader.

SHEILA
Anyone else thinking "recall"?

Laughter, Paris looks on.

RORY
That's okay, bill. Keep going.

BILL
As I was saying, in recognition of Rory's hard work and devotion to The Daily News, we have a few tokens of our appreciation. A.K.?

A.K.
This is just something to hang on your wall when you become editor of the New York Times.

He hands her a frame newspaper.

RORY
Oh, thank you.

BILL
It's the front page of the last edition you edited.

A.K.
Yeah, she needed that explained.

RAJ
Rory... this is to commemorate all those articles of ours that you carefully, thoughtfully ripped to shreds.

Raj hands her a giant pencil.

Laughter.

RORY
Thank you, Raj. Now I think I have to go out and buy a freakishly large pencil sharpener.

Laughter.

JONI
I have a confession to make. I only joined the Yale Daily News as a way to meet cute guys, but after watching you handle the job of editor with intelligence and... and grace... I became inspired to become a journalist.

SHEILA
Aw!

JONI
Thank you. 

Joni hugs Rory.

RORY
Oh! Whoa, Joni, I'm touched and a little damp.

Laughter, Joni spilt her drink on Rory.

RORY
It's okay.

PARIS
I have a Rory story. When I was running the paper, I was dying to do an article about everybody's asinine obsession with Boho Chic, but Rory had the guts to tell me that the idea for my article was trite and passé, because that's who Rory is -- honest, direct, and to the point. Like, when you all turned on me and decided you didn't want me in charge anymore, and you all chewed me up and spit me out, Rory was the one who broke the news to me. Thank you, Rory, for being the one person with integrity among a collection of cowardly backstabbers.

Everyone is quite for a few seconds.

RORY
These are all such great stories.

BILL
To Rory.

ALL
To Rory!

RORY
Thank you very much. I didn't write a speech or anything, although I could recite "The Charge of the Light Brigade," or the lyrics to "Rebel Rebel"...

A.K.
Let's hear it.

RORY
... Neither of which I think are appropriate, but, um... look, I've really enjoyed being editor. It's been great. But it's time for a change, right? So sayeth The Yale Daily News bylaws. Um, so...
(sighs)
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you your new editor in chief -- what's your name again?

BILL
Ha ha. Anyway, my first editorial move is to take everyone to Rich Man's Shoe. Drinks on me.

A.K.
All right, that's what I'm talking about!

Paris looks on with a “big deal” look on her face.

RAJ
(to Rory)
Coming?

RORY
Huh?

RAJ
For drinks?

RORY
Uh, no. I think I'm gonna pass.

RAJ
How come?

RORY
Um, well, new editor, new regime -- I don't want it to seem like I'm still trying to be your boss.

RAJ
Yeah, no one likes someone hanging around, telling us how to get drunk.

RORY
You know what I mean.

RAJ
Yeah. See you around.

RORY
You too.

Raj leaves.

PARIS
Well, now we're both ousted leaders. Welcome to club Nixon.

Paris leaves and turns off the lights.

Rory sighs.

INT. STARS HOLLOW: BAND APARTMENT, LIVING ROOM - DAY

Lane and Zach are looking at a sonogram.

LANE
Twins, Zach.

ZACH
Right

LANE
We're having twins.

ZACH
Yeah, it's heavy, but we can handle it.

LANE
Twice as many mouths to feed, twice as much to clean up after...

ZACH
Yeah, all that -- plus, there's gonna be prejudice, but we can fight that.

LANE
What?

ZACH
And they have surgeries now, babe. This does not have to be permanent.

LANE
What doesn't?

ZACH
As long as the babies don't have some vital organ attached, they can be separated -- easy-breezy.

LANE
What are you talking about?

ZACH
Until the operation, we'll just get specially made clothes.

LANE
Zach...

ZACH
Unless they're attached at the head. Then they can wear just about anything. We just slip it on from the feet up --

LANE
Zach, we're having twins, not Siamese twins.

He looks at the sonogram.

ZACH
Oh! Dude, that is such a load off my mind! So why were you freaking out at the doctor's office?

LANE
Because we're having twins!

ZACH
Yeah but they're separate. It's, like, way easier.

LANE
Easier than what? Triplets? Siamese triplets? Yeah, Zach, twins is way easier than Siamese triplets.

ZACH
I think we have to tell your mother you're pregnant now.

LANE
Ugh... she is so going to kill me!

ZACH
I mean you're starting to show.

LANE
Of course I'm starting to show! My body's filling up with two growing people! She is so gonna think we had sex before the wedding, and she'll convince me we did.

ZACH
But we didn't. Believe me. I'd remember.

LANE
You don't understand. This is what she does to me. She gives me this look, and I get all panicky and start sweating. Once, at a church picnic, someone had taken a bite out of six deviled eggs and put them back on the platter. My mother accused me of doing it, and I almost confessed!

ZACH
But you hate deviled eggs.

LANE
That's the point! After she gave me that look, I wasn't sure. Maybe I had taken those bites. She gets in my head. It's like Korean voodoo.

ZACH
It's gonna be okay. It is. 

He looking at the sonogram again.

ZACH
Whoa... you know what this picture is? Our first album cover.

LANE
Zach...

ZACH
Yeah, it's like a prenatal "Nevermind." 

He kisses her on the cheek.

INT. PARIS: HOTEL - DAY

Lorelai is closing the door.

LORELAI
Merci... monsieur... bellhop. Jeesh.

CHRISTOPHER
Did you see that? He literally sniffed at my tip and sauntered off.

LORELAI
Yeah, he sniffed and sauntered. He did not hop.

CHRISTOPHER
The bellhop was a gem compared to the concierge. I mean isn't it his job to be polite?

LORELAI
You would think the concierge would be polite.

CHRISTOPHER
It's not like we're being obnoxious and asking someone to take a picture of us in front of Jim Morrison's grave.

LORELAI
Which, by the way, I promised Rory we would do.

CHRISTOPHER
I hope Gigi picks up the language and the customs, but none of the rudeness.

LORELAI
Oh, no, Gigi's too sweet. She's got an impenetrable coat of sweetness around her. You shouldn't have called her Gigi, You should've called her M&M's.

CHRISTOPHER
You were great with her the whole flight. You were also great with Sherry today. Thank you.

LORELAI
She was great with me.

CHRISTOPHER
So, it's not just me, right? She does see to have it together?

LORELAI
Yeah, she seems grounded and sincere. She was nice. I couldn't believe how prepared for Gigi she was.

CHRISTOPHER
She was. She had her favorite "Madeline" book. She knew where the nearest park was. And did you see? She already had a booster seat.

LORELAI
Very impressive, by the time I got Rory one of those, she was 60 pounds. It got stuck on her butt.

Lorelai looks out of the window.

LORELAI
Oh, my god.

CHRISTOPHER
What?

LORELAI
We're in Paris!

CHRISTOPHER
You were thinking it was phoenix?

LORELAI
I just wasn't thinking anything. I mean, I was focused on getting Gigi All settled in. It slipped my mind that we're in the most beautiful city in the world!

Lorelai sits on the bed.

CHRISTOPHER
The Phoenix of Europe.

LORELAI
Alright first we have to go to Harry's bar and smoke Gauloises cigarettes and get in a fight about cubism and gesticulate wildly.

CHRISTOPHER
I am going to call our friend the concierge and make a reservation at the most romantic restaurant in Paris.

LORELAI
Ask him why these beds are so insanely comfortable.

CHRISTOPHER
(into phone)
Yes, can I...
(to Lorelai)
No, no, no, no, no! Hey, hey, hey! No sleeping. We are in Paris now. We are on Paris time.

LORELAI
Yes.

CHRISTOPHER
(to Lorelai)
Fight the jet lag.

LORELAI
Fighting the jet lag. Jet lag strong.

CHRISTOPHER
(into phone)
Yes, I'm sorry, sir. Could I make a 8:30 reservation at L'Arpge? Yes... uh-huh, I-I understand. Thank you.

LORELAI
Did he book it?

CHRISTOPHER
He did. He also reminded us to wear shoes. I sense he has a very low opinion of Americans.

LORELAI
Well, the French might be rude, but they know how to make a very cozy bed.

CHRISTOPHER
Lorelai?

LORELAI
What?

CHRISTOPHER
I know you're tired.

LORELAI
A tad.

CHRISTOPHER
I know you've been awake for something like 30 hours...

LORELAI
32 1/2.

CHRISTOPHER
... Just to help me make the transition easier for Gigi, And I really appreciate it.

LORELAI
Aww, don't mention it.

CHRISTOPHER
And I just want to show you the best possible time that you can have in Paris because you deserve it.

He kisses her on the cheek.

LORELAI
Aww, you're sweet.

CHRISTOPHER
Lorelai...

LORELAI
hmm?

CHRISTOPHER
Lorelai!

LORELAI
Okay, all right. Yes, we're gonna get up, 'cause we're in Paris, and we're gonna have a great Parisian time.

CHRISTOPHER
We are!

LORELAI
Yes! Hey, is the tour de France still going on? 'Cause we could stand on a little Paris street and yell "whoo-hoo" when the guys go by, or I could pour a cup of water on one of them. As he goes whipping by.

CHRISTOPHER
Actually, the tour de France was a couple of months ago.

LORELAI
Aw...

CHRISTOPHER
But we are going to a beautiful, intimate restaurant, and after we finish our meal, you can throw water on me.

LORELAI
Whoo-hoo!

Christopher kisses her cheek.

Rory and Paris are walking.

PARIS
What are you doing right now?

RORY
Not much.

PARIS
Would you mind swinging by the library to drop these off? I'd do it, but I just got cornered by professor Edwards. She wants to meet for coffee in five minutes to discuss me being her T.A. Second semester. I got to start thinking about life after graduation. Cozying up to professor Edwards could be a fast pass to a fellowship.

RORY
I guess that's true.

PARIS
What about you?

RORY
What about me?

PARIS
You looking into fellowships? Scholarships? Grad schools?

RORY
Not really. I mean, not yet. I will, probably.

PARIS
Time's running out. They only give the LSAT one more time before spring. Anyway thanks for dropping off the books. I don't mean to make you run out of your way I just thought you have a lot of free time since you don't work at the paper anymore.

RORY
That is true.

PARIS
What are you taking, by the way?

RORY
Taking?

PARIS
Just remember, Tricyclic antidepressants are better than your Monoamine Oxidase inhibitors, since those are for panic attacks. It doesn't look like you're there yet.

They walk out onto:

EXT. NEW HAVEN: YALE UNIVERSITY, COURTYARD - DAY

RORY
I have no plans of going there.

PARIS
You will. I know when I was finished as editor, I went into a major tailspin, couldn't you tell?

RORY
Well you masked it so well with your generally gloomy disposition.

They walk into:

INT. NEW HAVEN: YALE UNIVERSITY, HALLWAY - DAY

PARIS
The first day is hard. Then it just gets worse.

RORY
As it happens, I am totally relieved that my job at the paper is over.

PARIS
Yeah I did the denial thing, too. I even tried smiling a lot. That got old, and I think it made this line.

RORY
That'll teach you to smile.

PARIS
You really shouldn't be alone at a time like this. Why don't you call your "girls gone wild" friends? They seem delightful in a "get crazy-drunk in Cancun and flash your breasts" kind of way.

RORY
Your take on Lucy and Olivia is so not them.

PARIS
Whatever. Later. Oh, and Lexapro is fast-acting, but side effects are weight gain and noticeable drop in sexual appetite. Of course, with Logan gone, that's moot.

Paris leaves.

RORY
Always a pleasure, Paris.

Silence.

This is great dinner, mama.

MRS. KIM
I'm glad you like it. It's been too long since we had dinner together.

ZACH
Way too long.

MRS. KIM
I think you've been avoiding me, and I know why.

LANE
We haven't been avoiding...

MRS. KIM
Do not try to fool me. I know what's going on. 

Lane and Zach look at each other concerned.

MRS. KIM
You have no new music to show me, and you are ashamed.

ZACH
Music?

MRS. KIM
Yes, music -- the thing you say you want to do for a living.

ZACH
Oh, no, I do! Yeah I've been working on some stuff.

MRS. KIM
What kind of stuff?

ZACH
Actually I've been experimenting with different instruments. Like I've been playing the electric mandolin, which sounds really far out...

LANE
Mom, I'm pregnant! 

Mrs. Kim is surprised.

LANE
We waited until after we were married! If you don't believe us, we have a note from our doctor, which doesn't prove anything, but it does!

Firmly established...

MRS. KIM
Twins?

LANE
Twins.

MRS. KIM
Oh, that's wonderful. So, Monday, you move in with me.

It's 4:00?

LORELAI
Yes! It's 4:00! We fell asleep! Damn the French and their comfortable beds!

CHRISTOPHER
Oh, we must've dozed off around 7:00. We just had ourselves a 9-hour nap.

LORELAI
Nine hours?! That's not a nap -- that's a coma.

Christopher looks out the window.

CHRISTOPHER
Wow, the city looks really beautiful... and dead.

LORELAI
Ugh, okay -- this place is very tastefully decorated and everything, but would it kill them to put a minibar in here? I'm starving.

CHRISTOPHER
Me too.

LORELAI
(sighs)
You don't think they're still holding our table at L'Arpge, do you?

CHRISTOPHER
I'm guessing our table at L'Arpge smells of disinfectant and has two chairs on top of it.

LORELAI
Ohhh!

CHRISTOPHER
It's okay, it's okay! I can fix this! Um room service! What are you in the mood for?

LORELAI
Um... I would like a cheeseburger with a side of cheeseburger, and see if they can make me a cheeseburger smoothie.

CHRISTOPHER
Well, if they can make goose innards into a tasty spread, I'm sure they can make a cheeseburger smoothie.

LORELAI
Ha-ha.

CHRISTOPHER
(into phone)
Yes, sir, hi. I would like to order some room service.

LORELAI
What'd he say?

CHRISTOPHER
He didn't say, so much as chortle.

LORELAI
No room service? And no minibar? But two toilets. Where are their priorities?

CHRISTOPHER
Okay, let me float another plan.

LORELAI
Don't say "float" unless "root beer" is attached to it.

CHRISTOPHER
It's after 4:00. Why don't we get a few more hours' sleep, we wake up early, feast on a delicious French breakfast, and then we hit Paris totally refreshed.

LORELAI
Oh, fine... crummy Europe. Crummy time change. We switched to the metric system -- why don't they switch to our time zone?

CHRISTOPHER
We didn't actually switch...

LORELAI

CHRISTOPHER

LORELAI
So wide awake I could watch the Ken Burns documentary of "sod" and not drift off.

CHRISTOPHER
There are 104 fleur-de-lis stencid on the ceiling -- that's how wide awake I am.

LORELAI
I tried Humming Brahms' "Lullaby" in my head, but it kept morphing into "Purple Rain," and "Purple Rain" made me think of grapes, which made me think of grape jam, which made me think of English muffins slathered in grape jam.

CHRISTOPHER
Hold it -- this is the greatest city in the world. There is a restaurant out there, still open, with candles and soft lighting and great food, and I'm gonna find it for you.

LORELAI
My hero.

Besides, just being out on the Paris streets late at night -- what could be more romantic?

RORY
Or make her a mobile out of socks.

OLIVIA
Oh, that's genius.

RORY
What's Lucy doing?

OLIVIA
Watching "Real World: Denver." Lucy's eating it up with a fork and spoon 'cause boyfriend's working, and you know how much he hates reality TV.

RORY
Does he?

OLIVIA
I keep forgetting -- you still haven't met boyfriend.

Yeah, I'm beginning to wonder if he really exists, or if he's just Lucy's Snuffleupagus.

OLIVIA
I'd so love to go to, like, a cabin in the woods.

LUCY
Or just a house.

RORY
We could... go to my house.

LUCY
Yeah?

RORY
I mean, it's in Stars Hollow. It's this really small town, and there's not a lot to do...

LUCY
Oh, my god. Does your house have a yard?

OLIVIA
And a porch?

RORY
The house has a yard and a porch with a swing, and the swing makes this little creaking sound.

LUCY
That sounds so perfect.

OLIVIA
When we get there, I'm definitely mixing up a batch of lemonade and flirting with slim, the hired hand.

Let's try around the corner.

LORELAI
It has a mocking tone. "Ha ha, fermé." Do you hear that?

I hear a woman who's delusional with hunger. Come on.

See, this is why French people are so skinny -- they have no late-night snacks.

How do you explain Gérard Depardieu?

Oh, that's obvious. Gérard Depardieu has hogged all the food.

Ooh, ooh!

Yeah. Oh, I saw that.

Monsieur?!

LORELAI
Hello.

CHRISTOPHER
Wait -- attendez! We just want to know where you got the sandwich!

LORELAI
Oh, look what you did!

CHRISTOPHER
What?

LORELAI
You charged him. Everyone knows you don't charge a bear or a man with a sandwich.

Christopher sniffs. There's a truck with bag of baguette inside. Lorelai gasps.

CHRISTOPHER
That's a lot of bread.

LORELAI
What are the chances there's a butter truck nearby?

CHRISTOPHER
Uh, pardonne-moi. Bonsoir. Nous avons, hungry, hungry, hungry...

I got it. I got it. Mmmm! Mmm! Ahhh!

Funny Americans, huh?

Yeah, funny. Hungry Americans, huh?

BREAD GUY

"Everybody loves Raymond."

No, no, no! Wait, wait, wait!

The bread guy drives off.

CHRISTOPHER
Happy people, the French. 

Lorelai giggles.

CHRISTOPHER
What?

LORELAI
Nothing. It's weird... it's just being this hungry makes me think of this time when we were in 10th grade, and, for some reason, I had to make up this chemistry exam during lunch, and it went on and on and on forever, and then finally, when I was done, I came out... and there you were, waiting for me. And you took this slice of pizza from the cafeteria out of your coat pocket, and you gave it to me.

CHRISTOPHER
Pepperoni -- I remember.

LORELAI
Even then, you were so sweet.

CHRISTOPHER
Head back to the hotel?

LORELAI
Mm-hmm. You don't still have that pizza anywhere, do you?

Different coat. Darn!

Oh, I did. I asked Luke where it was, and Luke said, "from now on, if Zach wants to eat here, "he has to stand on his head in the middle of the diner and eat out of a rusty bucket." So I said, "cool!"

ZACH
I couldn't help it, Lane! I was so relieved that your mother wasn't pissed off about the pregnancy. "Cool" just came out, like a happy vocal burp.

LANE
Next time, cover your mouth! Jeez! 

She walks away from the table, Kirk puts his hand on her stomach.

LANE
Kirk, what are you doing?

KIRK
Trying to feel a kick.

LANE
You're gonna feel a kick if you don't get your hand off my stomach.

KIRK
So, I don't know if you've decided where you're gonna drop this little load, but I highly recommend Woodbury memorial, where I was born.

LANE
Good to know.

KIRK
The maternity suites there are primo, and they let the mother hold the baby post-delivery as long as she wants. Explains a lot about the relationship between me and my mother.

LANE
Yes, it does.

LUKE
Kirk, go away and stop harassing my employees.
(to Lane)
You should sit awhile.

LANE
No, I'm fine! Standing's no problem.

LUKE
All right, but from now on, no more serving heavy food --

He takes away the plates she is carrying.

LUKE
-- your meat loaves, your bowls of stew. Somebody who orders that -- let Caesar carry it. He needs the workout.

LANE
Well, that's not really...

LUKE
And if you have any questions or are worried about anything having to do with... you know, what's going on there, call my sister, Liz -- she's a veteran.

LANE
Thanks, Luke.

LUKE
Anyway, uh... you two are gonna be great. You'll be great parents.

Luke walks off. Lane takes the two plates and brings them to Zach.

LANE
Zach... we're gonna be parents.

ZACH
Yeah, it's like... we're not just kids anymore. We're one of them now.

LANE
Parents don't have to be told what to do. Parents do the telling.

ZACH
That's right. Besides, if we say no, what's the worst your mother could do? 

Lane give Zach a worrying look and walks away.

ZACH
Seriously, b-babe, w-what is the worst she could do?

LORELAI
Yeah?

CHRISTOPHER

LORELAI
I can barely talk.

CHRISTOPHER
Uh-huh, which is, uh...

LORELAI
Saying something?

CHRISTOPHER
I could just live in this room forever.

LORELAI
Let's.

CHRISTOPHER
Except...

LORELAI
No "except." It's decided. Call the guy. Come seal the doors.

CHRISTOPHER
I'm too hungry!

LORELAI
Me too.

CHRISTOPHER
My stomach is a pit.

LORELAI
I know. If I don't eat something, my stomach's gonna eat me.

CHRISTOPHER
We need to find food!

He gets out of bed.

LORELAI
We do! 

She sits up in bed.

LORELAI
Look at that view. It's so beautiful, I could eat it.

CHRISTOPHER
Oh, my god.

LORELAI
What?

CHRISTOPHER
I could totally fix this!

LORELAI
How?

CHRISTOPHER
I'm not gonna tell you. 

They kiss.

CHRISTOPHER
Let's shower.

LORELAI
Tell me.

CHRISTOPHER
It's a surprise.

LORELAI
Tell me.

CHRISTOPHER
I'm not gonna tell you.

LORELAI
Come on!

CHRISTOPHER
Not telling.

LORELAI
Is this your fix? To get me to think about what your fix is instead of thinking about food, huh?!

CHRISTOPHER
Is it working?

LORELAI
A little.

CHRISTOPHER
All I can tell you is it's bigger than a breadbox.

LORELAI
Mmm, bread.

CHRISTOPHER
Come on!

Okay!

LUCY
Ooh, Dean is smokin'.

OLIVIA
Oh, yeah. Dean's a fox.

LUCY
He looks tall.

RORY
He is. How can you tell from a picture of his face?

LUCY
Oh it's a talent I have.

RORY
Spooky.

LUCY
Yeah right I figure I'll be recruit by the FBI any day now.

RORY
It's a very specific specialty.

OLIVIA
Oh wait, there you are.

RORY
That was my first year at the Chilton paper.

OLIVIA
Look at you and your big Rory smile.

LUCY
Um what are you there -- 5'2"?

RORY
More like 5'7".

LUCY
Are you sure, you don't look 5'7”?

RORY
I'm sure. Hey is this dye supposed to smell all vinegary?

LUCY
Mm-hmm.

OLIVIA
It means it's working.

RORY
I feel like an easter egg.

LUCY
Boyfriend is gonna totally freak when he sees this color.

RORY
Freak, like, be mad?

LUCY
No. First, he'll be like, "whoa," then like, "I like it," and I'll be like, "thanks," and he'll be all, "I thought you looked pretty good before, too," and I'll be like, "better?" And he'll be like, "I think you look good no matter what you do," and I'll be like, "what if I got a Mohawk?" And he'll be like, "even if you had a Mohawk," and then we'll look at each other all goony-eyed, and we'll kiss, and he'll say, "don't get a Mohawk."

OLIVIA
And too bad if he doesn't like it. Serves him right for working all the time.

LUCY
Boyfriend's got great hair.

OLIVIA
Oh, the best. It's, like, beyond human.

RORY
Like, Conan O'Brian's?

LUCY
No, it's, like, really full. It's more like a cartoon character.

OLIVIA
Yeah, it's like snap's hair from snap, crackle, and pop. Wait, am I thinking of crackle?

RORY
Is crackle the one who wears a hat?

LUCY
They all wear hats. It's like part of their uniform.

RORY
Yeah, but one of them wears it all the way on his head, and one wears it further back so his bangs swoop out.

OLIVIA
That's pop. The blond one's definitely pop.

LUCY
Okay so boyfriend's got the color of crackle and the style of pop.

RORY
Ooh! We should make Rice Krispy Treats.

LUCY
Oh, my gosh!

OLIVIA
Yes!

They walk into the front door.

RORY
I think there is a cake pan in that broom closet.

OLIVIA
Broom closet?

RORY
Yeah, my mom's not really into baking or booms.

Rory and Lucy go into the kitchen. Olivia opens the broom closet.

RORY
Okay, so the butter's in the fridge, and I will get the marshmallows and the Rice Krispies.

OLIVIA
Oh, my god! Come here, you guys! It's Rory through the ages.

There are height markers on the broom closet door.

RORY
Oh, I totally forgot that was there.

LUCY
How cool is this? Can you believe you were this short in 1991?

RORY
No.

OLIVIA
Check out the next year, you shot up like a weed.

RORY
That's when I finally quit smoking.

LUCY
This is awesome you have a record of you literally growing up, and here you are when you're, like, 7, and then here you are when you're ready to graduate college.

Yeah. It's freaky. Oh! There's the cake pan. Let's get cookin'!

Listen, honey, if they weren't open at 11:00, I don't think they're gonna be open at 5:00 in the morning.

CHRISTOPHER
Trust me.

LORELAI
Trust is not the point. The point is food and finding some, not standing in front of closed restaurants feel...

Somebody opens the door.

MAITRE D'
Monsieur Hayden... Mademoiselle Gilmore.

CHRISTOPHER
That's us.

MAITRE D'
Welcome to L'Arpege. Please come in. Your table is ready.

Lorelai gasps.

Thank you.

A waiter hands them menus.

LORELAI
Thanks. 
(to Chris)
What is this?

WAITER
I'll give you a moment to peruse the wine list. Please let me know if you have any question.

CHRISTOPHER
Thank you. We will.

LORELAI
Merci.

The waiter opens the curtains to reveal the Eiffel Tower in the view.

CHRISTOPHER
Pretty cool, huh?

LORELAI
How did you...

CHRISTOPHER
I'm thinking the '78 Latour. Sounds like a classic car.

LORELAI
Honey, how did you do this?

CHRISTOPHER
I have my ways.

LORELAI
Tell me!

CHRISTOPHER
You really want to know?

LORELAI
Yeah!

CHRISTOPHER
It might take away some of the magic.

LORELAI
I'll risk it.

CHRISTOPHER
Well I was lying in bed and I was just thinking about us and how, when we were 16, we planned our trip to Paris, but it kind of got derailed.

LORELAI
(laughs)
I'll say.

CHRISTOPHER
And then I was thinking about how amazing it is that after everything -- the years, the distance, the screw-ups, everything -- we finally managed to make it here and how, in some ways, it feels like nothing has changed and no time has passed.

LORELAI
I know.

CHRISTOPHER
But then I started thinking about all the things that have changed.

LORELAI
When did you do all this thinking?

CHRISTOPHER
And I realized the one big thing that has changed is that now... I'm totally loaded.

LORELAI
(chuckles)
Okay.

CHRISTOPHER
And I guess, in some ways, I'm not quite used to it because I didn't even think, earlier, that I might be able to use that.

LORELAI
You totally bribed them to open.

CHRISTOPHER
Not bribed -- gave financial incentive.

LORELAI
Oh, my god!

CHRISTOPHER
(Chuckles)
I know.

LORELAI
You totally bribed them to open!

CHRISTOPHER
You don't have to whisper. Everybody here knows.

Lorelai looks at the staff.

LORELAI
I just can't believe that people really... do this.

CHRISTOPHER
Apparently.

LORELAI
Cool!

CHRISTOPHER
Right? And I was prepared to do other things to get you fed. I had backup plans that included theft and chicanery.

LORELAI
Ooh. Chicanery? For me?

CHRISTOPHER
Anything for you. Anything.
(pause)
So, you happy?

LORELAI
Really happy. This is wonderful. You didn't have to do it, you know?

CHRISTOPHER
I wanted to.

LORELAI
I would've been happy with a croissant.

CHRISTOPHER
Or a park bench. I know.

LORELAI
Why a park bench?

CHRISTOPHER
Remember when we were 16 and planning to go to Paris? We always said we'd sleep on a park bench.

LORELAI
Oh, yeah! Well, because we didn't have any money, so we couldn't afford a hotel we'd have to sleep on a park bench. I can't believe you remember that.

CHRISTOPHER
I'd still sleep on a park bench with you.

LORELAI
Name the bench.

MAITRE D'
Compliments of the chef... Langoustine on a bed of mush and candied carrot cannelle. Have you decided on the wine?

CHRISTOPHER
Yes. We're gonna go with the '78 Latour.

MAITRE D'
Excellent choice, monsieur.

LORELAI
I love you.

CHRISTOPHER
I love you, too.

LORELAI
So, this fix? Not only bigger than a breadbox, also a lot better.

CHRISTOPHER
Told you.

LORELAI
Hey, when we're done, can we go back to that beautiful bed?

CHRISTOPHER
You don't want to sleep on a park bench?

LORELAI
Mmm... no park bench.

MRS. KIM
If you're wondering about your room, it isn't ready yet.

LANE
We weren't wondering -- mama!

MRS. KIM
You want two separate beds, correct?

LANE
Well, that's not really the issue.

MRS. KIM
Better for Zach to have his own bed. Soon, you will be giant. Who can sleep with that?

LANE
Mama, could you stop for a minute? We really need to talk.

MARTY
I have to unload this shipment. I may be old, but I can multitask.

ZACH
The thing is, Mrs. Kim, when you said that we should move in with you and I said, "cool," what I meant was, "that's cool... "that you're offering to have us move in, but... no."

MRS. KIM
What do you mean, "no"?

LANE
We really appreciate the offer, mama, but Zach and are going to be parents soon, and we're adults...

ZACH
You know, young adults. Not like I'm gonna be smoking a pipe, and she's gonna be all, "hey, let's watch '60 minutes.'"

LANE
... And we're gonna be starting our own family, and it's important to us that we do that in our own home. We can do this, mama. We're ready.

LUCY
We'll pretend we're a Norwegian girl band, and we can purposely lip-synch just slightly off.

OLIVIA
Oh, we'll be famous!

LUCY
We'll be huge! You can write articles about us in the Yale Daily News.

RORY
Yeah.

LUCY
You can say things like, we're the hottest thing to come out of Norway since... what came out of Norway?

OLIVIA
We got the Vikings, Edvard Munch, and that's all I got.

LUCY
I mean, you still have an in at the newspaper, right?

OLIVIA
Sure she does. It's like once you're president, you're president forever, unless you get assassinated.

LUCY
Actually, it's good Rory's not editor anymore. More time to be in "The Forbidden Fjords."

OLIVIA
Okay yeah.

Wait. We need to discuss the name. Rory, where are you on "The Forbidden Fjords"?

Rory starts to cry.

Oh, my god. Rory, are you okay?

RORY
I'm fine.

Do you hate your hair?

'Cause you can change it.

No, no, no, I love my hair. It's -- it's nothing. It's stupid.

LUCY
It's not nothing.

OLIVIA
What is it?

RORY

Everything is just... ending. I just feel like everything is gonna be over. I'm done at the paper. Soon I'm gonna be done at Yale, and it's just like I'm standing on this cliff, looking out into this huge, foggy...

LUCY
Abyss?

They starts to sit on the bathroom floor.

RORY
... Like, a huge, foggy abyss, and, in my whole life, there's never been an abyss. It's been abyssless. I've always known exactly what is in front of me, and I've always known exactly where I'm going, and now... I don't know what's out there.

OLIVIA
Besides fog.

RORY
A ton of fog, and I hate not knowing what is out there. I mean, what's going to happen to my career and my relationship with Logan and the rest of my life?

Rory...

RORY
I'm so sorry, I don't mean to... drag everything down.

LUCY
I so know what you're talking about.

OLIVIA
Totally!

RORY
Really?

LUCY
Are you kidding? Once I move that tassel to the other side, I have no idea what the hell I'm gonna do. I mean, besides that FBI gig.

OLIVIA
I'm an art major -- not like that's an obvious road sign to the rest of my life.

RORY
I can't believe you guys worry about this. I mean, you're so carpe diem-ish.

LUCY
But how could you not be worried about it?

OLIVIA
Everywhere you turn, someone's talking about their brilliant plans for next year.

LUCY
I mean even our friends that were laid-back -- English majors, philosophy majors -- they're talking about coming investment bankers. When did that happen?

OLIVIA
Traitors.

LUCY
The other day, somebody used the phrase "negative amortization." What the hell is that?!

RORY
I have no idea what I'm doing. Maybe I should be applying to grad schools. I mean... journalism school or law school. Maybe I should go to law school.

Dude, you don't want to go to law school.

We must think like a baby. Anything that can be grabbed with little baby hands must be put up high or locked away in cupboards.

ZACH
How'd she get in?

MRS. KIM
Who couldn't get in? Hiding a key under the mat is like hosting a burglars-only open house.

Mama we're gonna baby-proof the apartment, but we've still got like months.

MRS. KIM
Of course, the drum kit has to go into storage, and you must throw away all of these.

ZACH
My guitar picks?

MRS. KIM
To you, they are guitar picks. To a baby, they are candy waiting to be choked on.

ZACH
That's true. One time, I was tuning to an open "e" and holding a pick between my teeth, and Brian made this really funny sound, and I snorted a laugh, so the pick went shooting to the back of my throat.

Mama, did you shop for us?

Yes, and I will cook dinner as soon as I am finished unpacking.
