Imaginary Chick Booty Call

LORELAI: Well he got there and I was looking for Stella and he said, “Oh, you really do have a baby chick loose in the house,” like I made that up, or – I don’t know.
SOOKIE: … Well you call someone and you say, “Can you come over and help me look for my loose chick?” It’s a little …
LORELAI: A little what?
SOOKIE: It sounds a little like the code for, “I’m not wearing any underwear.”

Luke apparently thought that Lorelai’s cry for help to find Stella might have been made up to get him to see her, and Sookie explains that’s how she got Jackson to come over the first time they had sex: by pretending she had a bat in the attic and needed his assistance. The trouble is that it seems difficult to carry off an imaginary baby chick that is your daughter’s Biology project for the month.

Sookie could easily have said, “Well I thought there was a bat – maybe it got out on its own. I’m sorry to have dragged yout out so late at night for nothing; at least let me get you a glass of wine”, and that could lead to sex if both parties were agreeable. Smooth move, and shows again Sookie is good with relationship stuff; if Lorelai had taken advice from her, she and Luke would have been married by the end of Season 1 and the show over with.

But what could Lorelai’s line have been? “Please help me find my daughter’s baby chick that she is being graded on for her Biology assignment. I know there isn’t any cage, or feed bowls, or proof she ever existed, but just go with it. Well, we’ve been searching for hours now, and to hell with Rory’s academic future, let’s just stop looking and have sex while she fails Biology and has to repeat a year”. Even when they found the real Stella, your child’s school project just doesn’t sound like a very sexy start to the evening.

I just can’t see how Stella could ever have been a credible booty call, although Sookie makes a good point that Lorelai could easily have asked her, or Patty, or Andrew instead.
