Rory hangs up the phone and announces that it was Lane. "She decided to be stupid and tell her mother the truth," Rory pouts. Lorelai and Rory agree that it was very stupid for Lane to tell MamaLane the truth about the concert. Now Lane can't go. Rory pouts off to make coffee. "Well, this looks really familiar," Patty says. She's holding up Luke's Battle Jacket. Lorelai says it's hers now because she bought it. Patty asks who brought it in. Lorelai says that she thinks Luke did. "And, judging by his very hostile reaction, he obviously wasn't done wearing it yet." Patty coos that she bets this jacket belonged to Rachel. Sookie's eyes light up and she walks over to the jacket saying, "Oh, my God! Rachel!" Lorelai asks who Rachel is. Sookie tells her that Rachel was Luke's "very serious girlfriend." Lorelai asks when Luke had a girlfriend. Patty says this must have been five or six years ago. "She broke that man's heart. It was terrible." Lorelai asks how she could possibly know nothing about all of this. Sookie said that Lorelai had just moved to Stars Hollow and had an eleven-year old kid. Also, Rachel traveled all of the time. "She was a photographer," Sookie says. Patty: "Archeologist." Sookie: "Really?" Patty: "Or flight attendant." Lorelai says she can't believe she's never even heard about it. Sookie tells Lorelai that no one ever talks about it, especially around Luke. Lorelai says she never pictured Luke having a girlfriend, or a broken heart. Patty suggests that Lorelai hide the jacket for a while, and excuses herself. Sookie holds up a pile of clothes and says they all need to be mended. Lorelai drops the jacket on top of them and tells her to take them to her room. Lorelai hears a noise outside and goes to the window. Paris, Fraulein, and Louisa have arrived in what I think is a sliver convertible VW Cabriolet. Rory walks over to look out the window. "She must be one great babysitter to earn enough money for that car," Lorelai observes. Rory says she just wants to get this over with. Lorelai smiles and says, "Suffer today; party tonight."
Lorelai smiles and answers the door. Louisa and Fraulein say hello. Paris has her head turned in the other direction. They enter the house. Rory asks if they found the place okay.
