Tension is running high between Lorelai and Rory following her night with Dean. Meanwhile, Emily is at the end of her tether with Richard.

Quote from Dean

Dean: Did I ever tell you I like your hair?
Rory: My hair?
Dean: Your shorter hair.
Rory: It's grown out a little.
Dean: I like it.
Rory: I like it, too.
Dean: So, um, you wanted to talk?
Rory: Yeah, talk. Words... wow. [they kiss]


Quote from Rory

Lane: You what?
Rory: I slept with Dean in my room last night, in my bed.
Lane: Oh, my God!
Rory: I know. Who would have even thought that Dean could fit in my bed. I mean, it's so small, and he's not small. He's tall, not small. Great, I'm rhyming.

Quote from Lane

Lane: Hey! Shut up, all of you! Now, that is my friend, and she is here in desperate need of some girl talk, and in case you haven't noticed, I am a girl, and this, right here, is what it's like to have a girl in the band, so all of you, deal!

Quote from Rory

Rory: He's married.
Lane: I know.
Rory: How did I overlook that fact? I mean, he said that the marriage was over. He said that he had told Lindsay or that he was going to tell her or that she already knew somehow, but I didn't ask anything else. Why didn't I ask anything else?
Lane: I don't know.
Rory: I don't remember what he said. I don't remember what he told me. I didn't ask anything important.
Lane: You can ask now.
Rory: I tried to ask now. I ended up having sex on an Al Gilbert record. I need to know some things. I need I don't know what I need to do.
Lane: Maybe you should talk to Lorelai.
Rory: No.
Lane: But she already knows about you guys.
Rory: No.
Lane: She's better than me at this sort of thing because she at least has a frame of reference.
Rory: Talking to her is not an option.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: No, Rory, you didn't. You're 19 now, remember? You're all grown up, and you can handle your own affairs. Sorry. That's a bad choice of words. You can handle your own life events, so if you didn't want to go to Europe, all you had to do was say you didn't want to go, but you didn't, so I assume you do want to go. You do want to go? How come? I mean, what about Dean? You're just gonna go off and leave now?
Rory: None of your business.
Lorelai: Did something happen? Did you guys have a fight, or is it something else? Is it Lindsay?
Rory: We didn't have a fight. Everything is fine with Dean. I want to go so I can get away from you.
Lorelai: I'm sorry, weren't you supposed to go through this phase, like, five years ago? 'Cause, I mean, seriously, at this point, storming into your room and blasting your goth rock, it's just gonna confuse your roommates.
Rory: Tell Grandma I had to pack.

Quote from Luke

Luke: [on answer machine] Hey, it's me. Uh, listen, I got a call from my sister and T.J. They're up in Maine, and they got into a little accident - nothing major, just each one of them broke an arm and a leg, so anyhow, they can't run the Renaissance Fair booth for a couple of weeks. So they asked me to come and help them out, and I, unfortunately, answered the phone, so I'm on my way to Maine. I'll be back in about a week. Okay? Bye. Great. [machine beeps] Hey, it's me again. I'm not sure if we're at the point in this relationship where you actually need to know that much information about my whereabouts, so if we're not, I'm sorry. I could have just said, "I'm going out of town, and I'll call you later." So I'm going out of town, and I'll call you later. [machine beeps] Me again, the idiot that leaves you three rambling messages on your machine. I just wanted to tell you I got a cell phone before I left, so, you know, you could call if you want, but only if you want, so that's it.
Lorelai: Ah!
Luke: [on machine] Yeah, a number might be good.
Lorelai: Thank you.
Luke: [on machine] Just don't change your mind until I get back, okay? Okay. Talk to you later.

Quote from Luke

Luke: [answers phone] Hello?
Lorelai: Well, if it isn't Dean Moriarty.
Luke: Yeah, this is the life.
Lorelai: So, are Liz and T.J. okay?
Luke: Yeah, they're just not getting around too well. Liz is all panicked that if they don't finish out the season, they're gonna lose their spot next to the apple doll booth, which is apparently the prime spot, so I said I'd help them out.
Lorelai: Very chivalrous of you.
Luke: Yeah, I'm a regular Lancelot. So, you get my messages?
Lorelai: Oh, no, did you leave a message? Sorry, my answering machine dropped dead of exhaustion. What did you say?
Luke: Not much.
Lorelai: Okay.

Quote from Luke

Luke: [on the phone] That was a hell of a test run.
Lorelai: You mean for the inn, of course.
Luke: Of course.
Lorelai: Yes, it was. Although, you know, until you have a successful second go-round, you really don't know if everything's gonna work.
Luke: Then I guess there's got to be a second go-round.
Lorelai: Well, yes, it's the only thing that makes really good business sense. So, where are you right now?
Luke: Well, I'm about 10 minutes from "if I lived here, I'd blow my brains out."
Lorelai: Ah, yes, I hear it's lovely there this time of year.
