We follow Rory as she rounds the corner and runs into Dean. She looks like she might run in the opposite direction, but then bites her lip and faces him. They stammer some hellos, some discussion of Lane, and the fact that Rory's home this weekend. CuteDean asks about Yale. Rory says she loves it. Dean loves Connecticut State, too. CuteDean's hair isn't so much floppy, now, as it is waxed. I like it, but then again I just like Dean. I don't care what any of you say. Rory tells Dean that the decorated gazebo looks like Heaven, or a Victoria's Secret commercial, which for some people is the same thing. Dean says he didn't know Rory would be home this weekend, or he would have invited her to the wedding. Couldn't he have invited her anyway, in which case she then would have come home? Rory says it's no big deal. Dean hasn't stopped shuffling from one foot to the other as he says he wasn't intentionally not inviting her; he was just not inviting her. He says he didn't know she'd be home. He didn't want her to think anything. Rory says she doesn't think anything now, because she goes to Yale and they think for her. Dean decides that since she is in town, she should come to the wedding with Lorelai. So Lorelai wasn't invited to the wedding, either? Who does CuteDean know in town, anyway? And what event is sanctioned by the Stars Hollow Official Town Gathering without one of the Gilmores crowned its princess? "Chicken or beef?" Dean asks, and Rory stammers. Dean decides that of course the Gilmores would both want beef, because they are hearty eaters. Dean flubs his line a little as he tells Rory he doesn't think she resembles beef, she just is beef. He says he'll see her at noon at the church: "I'll be the one in the tux." He says he and Lindsay didn't write their own vows and nobody's singing opera, so perhaps Lorelai and Rory won't be compelled to heckle their ceremony. "I know you think that's lame." Rory says, "Oh, no. It's a wedding. It's supposed to be...operatic." ["I think that's what she said instead of 'kind of gay,' which weddings also are." -- Wing Chun] Dean says that Lindsay's expecting him, so he'll see them tomorrow. As he runs off, Rory says, "But..." And that's that. Rory looks around, terrified. I thought she was all for this union. Hey, what's with The WB wanting everyone to be married off before college?
