Rory has been using the Supersonic Ears of Perception, and is hearing how the date is bombing. "Gym?" she asks CuteDean. CuteDean says they work on their bikes together. Hey, Lorelai was right. Remember how Rory said that CuteDean didn't have a motorcycle, and Lorelai was like, "Don't ride on his motorcycle," because she knew he'd have one eventually? And now he does. Unless CuteDean is talking about a Schwinn, but I doubt it.
Pan across the fancy dinner table where Rune looks bored and Jackson looks uncomfortable. Sookie is sharing funny stories about her and Lorelai, but she's only sharing the stories with Lorelai. She isn't even looking in Jackson's direction. Sookie keeps talking as Lorelai surveys the table and sees Rune staring at her and Jackson looking down, sighing. Lorelai takes a sip from her martini and sees Rune cutting the heads off of the swan sculptures on the table. Lorelai tells Jackson that Sookie has been experimenting with different forms of baking for a long time. Jackson leans in and says that's very interesting. Sookie agrees, and then turns back to Lorelai to share another funny story. Jackson looks down again. Lorelai says to Sookie, "Hey, let's go powder our noses." "You'll need a lot of powder," Rune says under his breath. Lorelai ignores the comment and pulls Sookie away.
