Season 2, Episode 15 -  Aired February 26, 2002

Rory realizes the bracelet Dean gave her is missing. Meanwhile, Luke looks for a bigger apartment for him and Jess.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: When did you first notice it was gone?
Rory: When he pointed out I wasn't wearing it.
Lorelai: What did you say?
Rory: That I had a rash and had to take it off until it healed.
Lorelai: Nice save, Gretzky.


Quote from Luke

Taylor Doose: I understand you have a sentimental attachment to the sign, but it confuses the tourists.
Luke: Back off the sign.
Taylor Doose: If I buy the building next to that sign, I run the risk of people being so busy trying to figure out if you sell hammers or burgers that they never notice the nice collectible-plate store next door.
Luke: Collectible plates?
Taylor Doose: Isn't that a great idea? Elvis, The Beatles, Mary Poppins. All the greats! You can hang them on the wall, or buy a little stand and set them up-
Luke: Okay, you need to get away from me now. At least a good arm-swinging length away.
Taylor Doose: It's people like you who keep this town from becoming one of the great towns in America!
Luke: Arm-swinging length!

Quote from Jess

Rory: I lost my bracelet. Dean gave it to me.
Jess: How thoughtful.
Rory: I've been all over town looking for it. I've been to Lane's, I've been to Luke's, I've been to the bus stop, I've been to Miss Patty's and I've circled Stars Hollow twice, and nothing. I have no idea what I'm going to do.
Jess: It's really that big a deal?
Rory: What do you mean?
Jess: I mean, I know it's got an 'I've been pinned, Bye Bye Birdie' kind of implication to it, but it was just a bracelet.
Rory: I don't think Dean will see it that way.
Jess: You didn't lose it on purpose.
Dean: I know, but things have been a little weird between us lately and you couldn't care less.
Jess: Oh, yes, I could.

Quote from Jess

Lorelai: I mean, I know you hate the world, but I thought you liked Rory.
Jess: I didn't do anything.
Lorelai: Bull.
Jess: Whatever.
Lorelai: Oh, don't "whatever" me, you little jerk. You let Rory run around completely panicked thinking she lost the bracelet. She was miserable. Do you understand that?
Jess: I didn't take it.
Lorelai: I'm sure you're jealous of Dean because he's great and Rory's madly in love with him. But you taking the bracelet didn't hurt Dean, it hurt Rory. That bracelet is the most precious thing she owns. She never takes it off. It means everything to her. And you stealing it was unbelievably cruel.
Jess: The most precious thing she owns?
Lorelai: Yes!
Jess: If it's the most precious thing she owns why did it take her two weeks to figure out it was gone, huh? You might want to reevaluate how madly in love she is. I wouldn't start calling him "son" yet.
Lorelai: Get out of here.
Jess: You read my mind.

Quote from Luke

Luke: I knew I just had to do something. I had your voice going round in my head.
Lorelai: Yeah, it's kind of like the Small World song.
Luke: "Take a chance, Luke. Make a move, Luke. Can't have a single bed, Luke." So I bought the building!
Lorelai: You what?
Luke: I went to the bank, got a cashier's check, signed the papers, and I bought the building.
Lorelai: Wow.
Luke: I am the building's owner. I own the building.

Quote from Luke

[As Jess sits listening to music in the apartment, Luke walks in, grabs a sledgehammer from a closet and walks over to the far wall. He swings the sledgehammer and pounds a giant hole into the wall.]
Luke: That's your room. Finish up. We'll hold hands and skip afterwards.
