Driving home, Lorelai tells Rory that dinner was really good. Rory says that all of Emily's dinners are good. She says it like Emily had anything to do with the preparation or the cooking of the meal. Lorelai loved the rolls. She loved the rolls so much she stole four and put them in her purse. Rory finds a roll in Lorelai's purse and asks if she has any shame. Rory gets a page. It's CuteDean. She says that he hasn't been calling or paging her as often and now she is almost starting to miss him. Lorelai says he might be calming down. She asks if Rory wants to call him on her cell phone. Rory says she'll just call him tomorrow. Nice use of a pager. Lorelai says it's still early and that Rory could go out with him for a little while. Rory already has plans with Lane. They're going to listen to CDs. MamaLane's out of town until Sunday so they're going to sneak out and go to Luke's. Lorelai asks why she'd go to Luke's when she just ate. Rory says she doesn't even know if they'll really go to Luke's. It's just a "maybe." "Maybe" she'll make out with Jess.
Lorelai drops Rory off at Lane's. She asks if Rory's sure she doesn't want to call Dean. "Nope. Tomorrow's fine," Rory smiles. Lorelai nods and drives off.
Home. Lorelai pulls up and sees CuteDean sitting on the steps of the house. Oh, it's all so sad, with the strummy music and the la-la's and everything. Lorelai pouts up to CuteDean. In perfect heartbroken delivery, CuteDean says, "She likes Jess, doesn't she?" Lorelai can only pout and try not to cry with the rest of us. CuteDean sighs, stands up, and lumbers off. He's so tall. Come to me, CuteDean! You'll find something so much better out there! She's not worth your pain!
Next week: the promo tells us there's going to be a car accident that Jess causes, so Rory goes to the hospital and Lorelai fights with Luke. It's just a ploy to remove the last remnant of CuteDean from Rory's life, I'm sure. Also, I don't trust these promos anymore. Probably it's Michel's car and it got messed up at a Monster Truck Rally.
