Luke's. Lorelai says eight million words to tell Luke that she had to jump a river or something to get him to agree to let Taylor park an ice-cream truck in front of the diner so that she can start work on the Dragonfly. She threatens to kill herself. Luke's casually making a smoothie, so I figured all of this lameness of plot was to get Lorelai over to Luke's in the morning so that she and Luke could talk to Dean. But, no. Luke casually agrees to let Taylor park wherever, because it will be on the street outside and not in his diner, and Lorelai can't believe that Taylor never even bothered asking Luke in the first place, and put her through all that bullshit for nothing. She says she's figured out something about business today -- that it's not about being nice, but about screwing people over and getting what you want out of people as quickly as possible, by any means necessary. Oh, but I do believe you knew that lesson long ago, didn't you, Lorelai?
Luke brings the smoothie to Dean, who's awake. Since he's never been there before, he had to look out the window after he woke up to figure out where he was. Dean says he had too many beers last night. Luke says it happens. There's much small talk about how Dean is getting married today. They don't talk about Rory. Dean says he's got to go pick up his tux and get to the church in an hour. He thanks Luke for everything, and then leaves to the strummy sound. Luke wishes him good luck.
Rory and Lane walk through the town, wondering where all the good musicians are for Lane's band. Lane says she's off to the music store to look at things she can't afford. Rory says she has to go get ready for the wedding, which starts in ten minutes. Luke comes out of the diner as Lane leaves. He asks for Lorelai. Rory says she's probably out getting Dean's wedding gift. Luke asks if she has her cell. Rory says it's probably dead. She says they can stop by after Dean's wedding. Luke tells Rory not to go to Dean's wedding. He says she really shouldn't go, and asks her to trust him on that: "It'd just be better this way." Rory says she won't go, without an explanation, which means she really didn't want to go, I guess. Luke leaves, and so does Rory.
Kirk finds Lorelai, who's holding Dean's wedding gift, to tell her that the alarm has been disconnected, and that the roofer will be out tomorrow to fix the damage. He apologizes for the inconvenience and brags that he has a strong sense of chivalry when it comes to women living alone, because his family tree dates back to a 12th-century knight. As a kid, he thought that meant he was related to Ted Knight: "I wrote a lot of letters. He never responded." He says he wanted Lorelai to feel safe, so he hopes she doesn't mind. Lorelai sure doesn't, so she leans over and gives Kirk a kiss on the cheek. Aw, man. They're so dating now, in Kirk's eyes. Way to go, Lor. Rory finds Lorelai. Lorelai tells her that she found the perfect present for Dean, and Rory informs her that they're not going to the wedding because Luke said they shouldn't. Lorelai says she'll go talk to him, but Rory says she shouldn't. She says that Luke was kind of upset, and that it's better that they don't go to the wedding. As Rory and Lorelai walk home, Kirk follows them "in a little clown-y car."
