Stars Hollow. Lorelai is informing Rory that they'll be attending Emily's for Thanksgiving. Rory wants to know how they're going to do four Thanksgivings: Lane's, Sookie's, Luke's, and Emily's. "We're mad, Edie," Lorelai says. She says they have to go to Emily's or they'll be brought up on war crimes. Lane's is always "super-early" and Sookie's is mid-afternoon, but Luke's will be difficult to attend. Lorelai says they'll just have to skip it. She says he won't care, since holidays aren't anything to him. Kirk exits the expensive-looking cat shop just then, which makes me wonder just how many cats Stars Hollow could have. Lorelai asks if Kirk just discovered a new fetish, since his arms are loaded with cat supplies. Kirk doesn't get it, so Rory notes that he must have a new cat. "Yep, I'm very excited," Kirk deadpans. "You seem it," Lorelai notes. Rory looks at Kirk's packages and says she's assuming there's nothing left in the store. Kirk says that there are a number of things still inside, and remarks that his excitement must be clouding his ability to judge comedic hyperbole. He tells them he got the cat from a lady who was giving away cats at the store. He named the cat Kirk. Lorelai asks if that's confusing. Kirk says it isn't if you think about it. Lorelai thinks about it, and says it's still confusing. Kirk says he'll never be calling himself when he calls the cat's name, and he likes the name Kirk, so the cat is named Kirk. But he realizes then that when his mom calls, he won't know which Kirk she's calling for. He decides to make her call the cat CatKirk and he'll be HumanKirk. He says he's glad he ran into the girls so that he could figure that out. The girls say, "Bye, HumanKirk" as he leaves. "He's always been a cat person; he just never had a cat," Rory decides.
