Rory walks over to Luke's. Miracle of miracles, there's a sign advertising the rummage sale on Luke's window. Luke, who hates All Things Community. Rory smiles and walks in. Luke tells Rory she'll have to wait a few minutes for coffee. Rory tells him that "someone" put a sign for the rummage sale outside the window. Luke ignores her and tells her she can have decaf if she's in a hurry. Rory continues to tease him and says they all know how he feels about "public displays of town affection." Luke tells her that Lorelai asked him to put the sign up. He tells her that Lorelai doesn't handle the word "no" very well. Rory agrees and smiles. Luke tells her that the longer she sits there laughing at him, the longer she's going to have to wait for her coffee. Rory stops laughing. Lorelai enters, wearing a damn cowboy hat, that rhinestone jacket, and other things found in Madonna's trash. As she babbles on about the amount of things donated for the rummage sale, Rory gives Lorelai a judging look. Rory brings up the hat. Lorelai beams and says it's great. If great means leopard print. Rory says that she thinks it's very nice that Lorelai is single-handedly trying to rebuild the bridge (the cause of this rummage sale), but she's got to stop buying everyone else's old clothes. Luke walks up with the pot of coffee and stares at Lorelai. "What the hell do you think you're wearing?" he says angrily. He points at the jacket and demands she take it off. "Now, that is not yours," he says. He keeps yelling at her to take the jacket off. Lorelai tries to get him to calm down, but he won't calm down and keeps going on about the jacket until it's obvious to all viewers that the Very Important Jacket used to belong to a Very Important Girl. Lorelai asks what's the matter with him. He shouts that nothing's the matter, tosses the coffee pot on the counter and tells them to pour their own coffee. He storms off. Lorelai and Rory quietly look at each other as we fade to commercial.
Outside the Gilmore house. People are arriving with more things to donate. There's a sign out front that reads "Rummage Sale. Drop off here. Nothing alive or gross please." It's somehow kinda autumn outside, with different colored leaves all over the ground. From snow to fall. Stars Hollow has the best seasons.
