[Luke enters]

MICHEL: [On the Phone] Yes Sir, thank you, [Seeing Luke] Oh you, I thought we were done with you.

LUKE: Hi Michel is Lorelai here.

MICHEL: [On the phone] Hey can you tell Lorelai someone is here to see her. [Hangs up] Well this is awfully awkward. We should make some sort of conversation. I see you sense of style has not changed.

LUKE: Nope.

MICHEL: I’ve often wondered does someone in your family own a flannel company.

LUKE: Ah no.

MICHEL: You know what I cannot do this, why don’t we just stand here and let the awkwardness just wash over us.

LUKE: Fine by me.

[Lorelai enters]


MICHEL: Ah here she is, it’s been a delight chatting with you.

LUKE: I’m sorry to just barge in like this,

LORELAI: That’s okay.

LUKE: Can we talk somewhere.

LORELAI: Ah sure.

[Luke and Lorelai are sitting, Luke is very nervous.]

LUKE: The court date is coming up and I need a character reference and Liz wrote one but my lawyer read it and said it was sweet but it was filled with all these weird childhood anecdotes that I probably don’t want to share with anyone much less a court of law and I need another one and I just don’t know who else to go to and I know it’s and awfully lot to ask and if it’s weird or whatever...


LUKE: I totally understand…


LUKE: But if you could ah…

LORELAI: Yes I’ll do it.

LUKE: Yeah, okay alright well this is my lawyers address and if you could just mail the letter directly to him.


LUKE: Yeah and look if you don’t mind if you can do it as soon as possible, I mean the court date is right around the corner.

LORELAI: Definitely

LUKE: Thanks, thankyou.

LORELAI: Your welcome.

LUKE: Yeah um okay well I’ll just, thanks.

LORELAI: Sure I’ll get right on it I’ll send it...

LUKE: Okay, alright, thanks.

[They shake hands, Lorelai looks weird]

[Lorelai and Rory walking]

RORY: But your not telling him about this character reference thing are you.

LORELAI: Well I haven’t yet.

RORY: You’re not planing to.


RORY: You’re potentially not telling him that kinda a lie by omission.

LORELAI: A lie of omission, isn’t that an Ashley Judd/Morgan Freeman movie.

RORY: Listen mom if there is anything I have learnt from this whole thing with Lucy is honesty is the best policy.

LORELAI: Ah it’s an okay policy.

RORY: But how are you meant to have some kind of relationship with him if you’re not honest with him.

LORELAI: Honey look I’ve been around a long time okay, I wore leggings the last time they were trendy and I knew Tom Hanks when he was a Bosom Buddy, I have lived and I have learnt.

RORY: I know.

LORELAI: And I understand that you value honesty and I applaud that value but sometimes the truth is a little more complicated.

RORY: More complicated, how?
