Luke is pitching to CuteDean. The way the softball field is set up, though, it looks like only Luke and CuteDean are playing. Christopher asks Rory which one is CuteDean. She points him out. Then she points out Luke. Christopher and Rory sit in the bleachers in front of Resident Townie Kirk. Luke and CuteDean smack-talk each other for a bit, until Kirk interrupts to shout that Luke can't pitch and CuteDean can't hit. The little blonde girl sitting next to Kirk is cracking me up. She's like, "That man is funny, but I'm not supposed to think so." Luke shouts that he'd think Kirk would have something better to do with his Saturdays. Kirk: "What can I say? I'm addicted to comedy." CuteDean spots Rory in the bleachers and gives her a CuteWave. Kirk keeps on heckling, and now it's not even funny anymore (the little blonde girl seems to be agreeing with me). Christopher asks how long the games last. Rory says they usually last until the players get tired, and then they just say the first team to get a run wins. Kirk says it's very professional. Then he shouts, "Hey! Luke! Does your husband play softball, too?" ["Okay, I thought that was funny." -- Wing Chun] Luke takes off his glove and says, "All right, that's it." Kirk sees that Luke's walking over for a beatdown, and Kirk excuses himself by saying he's "getting a page" and then runs away. Kirk has the Wuss Run down perfectly. The legs go sort of out to the side and the arms are stiff with the fingers stretched out. Aw, man. It's hard to describe, but a good Wuss Run will make me laugh anytime.
CuteDean walks over to Rory. She introduces him to Christopher. CuteDean asks, "So. Do you live in the area?" which seems a strange question. Hasn't he ever asked Rory where her dad lives before? Christopher tells CuteDean that he had "some time," so he rode his bike from Berkeley. Ow. That's a long motorcycle ride. CuteDean asks what he rides. Rory tells him. CuteDean says he has an '86 Suzuki. Christopher is impressed. CuteDean goes back to his game. I love that in episode one Lorelai totally called that CuteDean would eventually have a motorcycle. Rory and Christopher look at each other and sit back on the bleachers. After a moment of silence, Christopher says, "So, that was a Dean." "That was a Dean," Rory repeats.
