I had a JJ moment the other day eating at a restaurant that had a story on the back of the menu and all I could think about was Luke and Lorelai's first date.

That's great, Jen. I'd probably think the same.

This entire interaction is priceless -
CUT TO INTERIOR OF A HOMEY YET STYLISH TAVERN
[Luke and Lorelai enter]

LORELAI: Oh. Oh, wow. Very 'Prancing Pony'.

LUKE: This way, please. [gently guides her toward a round-tabled booth] Your table, Miss.

LORELAI: Oh. Why, thank you, sir.

[He removes his jacket and sets aside as they both slide into the booth and sit. Lorelai notices a small sign on the table.]

LORELAI: [impressed] "Reserved."

LUKE: I told you I'd planned the evening.

LORELAI: Weren't we supposed to let someone who works here seat us?

LUKE: Not necessary.

LORELAI: Is this like a Mafia thing?

LUKE: Excuse me?

LORELAI: The whole coming in, special table, reserved sign. Are you gonna have to whack someone before the soup course?

LUKE: No, I've filled my whacking quota for the week. [cringes] Dirty?

LORELAI: [wicked grin] Extremely.

LUKE: Thought so.

MAISY: [OS] Lucas!

[An older woman walks up to their table with menus]

LUKE: How you doing, Maisy?

MAISY: You just seat yourself now?

LORELAI: I told him!

[Luke stands and gives Maisy a warm hug]

MAISY: We run a nice place here, Lucas, not like that hash joint of yours. And this must be your young lady. Hello, there. I'm Maisy.

[they shake hands]

LORELAI: Hi. I'm Lorelai. I love your place.

MAISY: It used to be a whorehouse.

LORELAI: Oh - my.

MAISY: I like that it's got a tarty history. The best places do.

LORELAI: And the best people.

MAISY: 'The best people'. I like that. [calls out loudly] Buddy! [shoos Luke] Will you sit down?

LUKE: Well, you pulled me up. [sits]

[Older man walks up]

MAISY: Buddy, this is Lorelai.

BUDDY: Lorelai. Well, hello, Lorelai. [shakes hands]

LORELAI: Hello, Buddy.

MAISY: This is very exciting for us because Lucas never brings his girls here. [calls out] Lori, some sparkling water and champagne.

LUKE: And a beer.

MAISY: You're on a date, you drink champagne. You're at a ball game, you drink a beer.

LORELAI: My goodness, what a big menu.

LUKE: Don't bother looking. Whatever you order, they'll just bring you something different.

MAISY: Hey, what about the, uh - [hand gestures]

BUDDY: Oh, yeah, good. With garlic and --

MAISY: No, no, no garlic. I mean, give the boy a chance.

[Disappointed, Buddy exits]

MAISY: Lorelai, nice to meet you, and, uh, he's a special one, this guy.

LORELAI: That's the word on the street. [Maisy exits] They know you.

LUKE: Actually, I come here two, three times a week. Yeah -- breakfast, dinner, whenever I have the time.

LORELAI: Oh, my God, Luke has a 'Luke's'.

LUKE: Yeah, well, y'know. I've known Maisy and Bud my whole life. Maisy went to school with my mother.

LORELAI: Really?

LUKE: Yeah. And then later on when my dad died and I wanted to turn the hardware store into a diner, you know, Buddy really helped me out.

LORELAI: That's so nice.

LUKE: He's a good guy. He really showed me how to run a restaurant, how to order -- everything, basically. I mean, I couldn't have done it without him.

[Lorelai looks around]

LORELAI: I love this place.

LUKE: It's a great place -- very old.

LORELAI: How long have they owned it?

LUKE: Actually, the story of that is on the back of the menu.

LORELAI: Oh, cool. [flips over the menu and clears throat] Oh, look -- "Sniffy's Tavern: A story of love." Oh, a story of love. "Maisy Fortner and Bertram 'Buddy' Linds met at a high-school basketball game. She was playing, he was not. They fell in love, got married. Buddy went to work at a dairy, and Maisy worked at the school, but they dreamed to someday own a restaurant so that all of their friends and family could come and eat and visit and laugh with them every single day."

LUKE: Buddy hated working at that dairy.

LORELAI: [continues to read] "One day Sniffy, their beloved dog, ran away. Maisy and Buddy searched high and low for him. Finally they stumbled past a dilapidated old tavern that had been boarded up for years. They heard a dog howling. They forced open the door, and there was Sniffy, stuck underneath a fallen beam. Maisy and Buddy pulled Sniffy free and rushed him to the vet, where he immediately went into emergency surgery." Oh my God, did Paul Thomas Anderson write this? Edit, people.

LUKE: You don't have to read the whole thing. There's not gonna be a quiz.

LORELAI: I'm almost done. [continues reading] "Four hours later... Sniffy was dead." Sniffy was dead?! Are you serious? Where's the happy ending?

LUKE: Well, that's what happened.

LORELAI: Well, people don't read the back of the menu to find out what really happened. They read the back of the menu to be happy, to be uplifted. That's why they read the back of the menu.

Thanks to Craig for the transcript of this scene.

I'd have to agree with Lorelai.

I do like how Luke had that sort of grounded, 'normal' aura. I can see how it created chemistry with Lorelai at times.

Yep. It played well off her craziness.
