Janet has one of those annoying mini-trampolines. But unlike the rest of us on this planet, she's actually using it. Rory comes home (rockin' the fishnets, girl) and notes that Janet has a trampoline. "Helps with my shin splints," Janet says. Rory says, "Wow. Squeaky." The phone is ringing in Rory's room, and Janet tells her so. Rory makes them hit that loud door opening/closing track, as she enters her room.
Rory's room has moved around somehow. Paris is pouting on her bed listening to the phone ring, but won't answer it. She knows it's Jamie, and they're in a fight. How can two Yale girls not have voicemail? It came with our phone service in the dorms back in 1993. The phone keeps ringing, and Janet's squeaking outside. Rory asks Paris to answer the phone. Paris answers and then hangs up again. There's still the squeaking. "Why are you and Jamie fighting?" Rory asks. "Because he's wrong," Paris answers. That's the best answer ever. Paris says Jamie won't listen to her. The phone rings again, Paris answers by telling Jamie he won't listen to her, and then hangs up again. Paris says he loves the sound of his own voice so much you'd think he was already President. Paris says she doesn't want to be Hillary, and have to wait a hundred years while he does his thing before she gets to do her own thing and be too old to enjoy it. Rory says she doesn't think Hillary's too old to enjoy it. "Fine, be on his side," Paris snots. Rory says she's on Hillary's side. The phone rings again. Rory complains that she can't study with the phone ringing. Rory answers and tells Jamie that Paris is there. She tells Paris that she's acting stupid, and that Paris loves Jamie, so she should just get on the phone and work it out. Paris takes the phone and says she hasn't thought about what Jamie said because she's very busy, and contrary to what he believes, she's got better things to do than sit around and think about him or what he said, meant, wanted, or anything about him or concerning him. Rory takes the phone away and tells Paris to have Jamie call her on her cell phone and then she can take the argument outside where there are birds and trees. Paris says her cell phone is dead. Rory gives Paris her own cell phone. Paris wants to know Rory's phone plan so that she doesn't get slammed with a massive charge. Rory hands her the phone. Paris tells Jamie she's calling him back on Rory's cell. Eventually Paris gets off the phone, takes Rory's phone, and says she'll be back. "Take your time," Rory says. DOOR SLAM. Rory sits at her desk and tries to study, but there's the sound of a muffled television through the wall. Rory pouts and leaves her room.
