But when Rory sees her bedroom, she finds out that there's not going to be any studying there. "You quiched my room," Rory says. Sookie tells her that they're actually tarts. About twenty trays of broccoli tarts cover every available inch of space in Rory's room. That smell must be incredibly overpowering. "Well, you tarted my room," Rory whines. Lorelai says she didn't know Rory was coming home. And I guess she couldn't call, with Paris on her phone. Rory covers her face and asks how she's supposed to study with that smell. Lorelai tells her to study in the living room. Rory complains that this studying is too serious for the living room, and that she's got a ton of work to do. Lorelai suggests a library at Yale. Rory says they're too quiet and big and drafty. Yeah, Rory hates libraries. She complains that she can't believe she came all the way home and there's nowhere to work. It's called college, Rory. Go to it. She notes that the sewing machine must not be far behind. "Oh, hey," Lorelai says. Very funny. She says that there are many kids in India who would love to come home to a room full of quiche. Sookie is very upset that people keep calling her tarts "quiche."
Luke's. Kirk enters. Luke calls Cesar over to discuss the tuna melt. This week, Cesar is the young Spanish boy instead of the older Asian man again. Maybe there are two Cesars. Anyway, he accidentally made the tuna melt with turkey. Kirk is checking out the layout of the restaurant. Luke walks over and asks what he's doing. Kirk asks, if he was Tom Cruise, where Luke would seat him. "In an acting class," Luke answers. Kirk asks about the best seat in the house, and where the best acoustics are. He'd hate to be able to hear the toilet flush during his meal. Luke says he's too busy to kill Kirk right now, and would like him to come back later. Kirk reserves three tables for Wednesday night at 8, and that he'll decide on his table selection later. Luke says Luke's doesn't take reservations. Kirk says that Lorelai told him to go somewhere that makes him comfortable, and that's Luke's: "Well, not at this moment, but previously I have been comfortable here." He tells Luke that he has a date with a young lady. Luke asks if he really felt the need to add the "young lady" part. "Kinda," Kirk admits. Luke says he'll give him one table at 8. Kirk hands Luke a diagram of how he'd like the table set up, with flowers by his date's plate and a champagne bucket out of his elbow's reach. Luke tells Kirk to get his own champagne and flowers. Kirk asks how much it would be for him to rent the place upstairs of the date goes well. "You mean my apartment?" Luke asks. He says goodbye. Kirk stops on his way out to ask a woman eating meatloaf if it makes her hot. Luke yells, and Kirk leaves.
