Let Me Hear Your Balalaikas Ringing Out


LUKE: What about - eloping?
LORELAI: What?
LUKE: Eloping. We could do that, right? Instead of planning this whole big thing?
LORELAI : I don’t know, maybe! I guess we could. But Rory has to come. Is it still eloping if Rory comes?
LUKE: Sure, why not? Let’s start planning it.
LORELAI: You don’t plan an elopement, you just do it!
LUKE: Oh, right. That makes sense. We could even come back and do it here when the weather’s better. We could rent a place for a couple of weeks in the summer.
LORELAI : That sounds nice. [They hear a door slam.] Whoa. Loud.
LUKE: Must be Rory and Logan.
LORELAI: In some kind of hurry. [She calls out.] You guys, we’re up here! In the interest of full disclosure, we’re fairly casual.
[Mitchum Huntzberger bursts through the door.]
MITCHUM: Who are you?
LUKE: Who are you?
MITCHUM: Mitchum Huntzberger! Who are you?
LORELAI [tightening her robe]: Um, I’m Lorelai, I’m Rory’s mother.
MITCHUM: I’m looking for my son.
[The door downstairs opens and Logan calls up. Mitchum heads downstairs. Luke and Lorelai look concerned]
