Rory leaves, and Luke marvels again about how great it is that she got into all three schools. Of course she got into all three schools. She's Rory. Everything is always perfect in Roryland. Luke is apologetic concerning his news about Jess. Lorelai asks to hear it anyway. Jess has been selected Employee of the Month over at the Wal-Mart. My friend Jessica -- who's filling in for Djb who quit the job to move back to New York, who was filling in for Stee who quit the job when Rory and Jess got together, who was filling in for Ray who quit the job when Lorelai got engaged to Max Medina -- gets her Eddie Vedder button pushed and scoffs, "Wal-Mart! This show is sponsored by Wal-Mart? That sucks. I hate corporate sponsorship during the you should mention that in your recap. That sucks. Wal-Mart. They suck. I hate Wal-Mart. They wouldn't have a Wal-Mart in Stars Hollow." I didn't want to explain to her where the Wal-Mart was and why it was there, as she was busy throwing popcorn at my television, making hissing sounds. Anyway, Lorelai is as proud of Jess as Luke is, and asks if he told Jess he's proud. Jess didn't tell Luke about it. He only found out because Wal-Mart sent a letter home to the family, inviting him to the ceremony. Lorelai asks if he's going to go. Luke: "Oh, he'd hate it if I was there. You know, seeing him participating in some corporate ceremony like that, being called upstanding and responsible. It would kill him. Yeah, I'm going." Lorelai calls him a "good boy." Luke looks over at Kirk, who immediately swipes his t-shirt display off his table and goes back to innocently sucking a straw. Cue the opening credits.
