On the street, Lorelai is surprised when Michel says that he needs to stop by Luke's. He reminds her of the time a troupe of mimes came to stay at the Dragonfly: "It was a very stressful time for me: guessing at what they wanted; watching to see what they were pointing at to know what to fetch them." Haaa! Michel says that when they finally left, he needed comfort, so he stopped at Luke's and bought a hamburger. "I know," he says to her shock. "It was a moment of insanity." He says he realized on his way home exactly how many minutes of intense training it would take to work it off, and threw it away, only to find later that Chin Chin had fished it out of the garbage and devoured it, obviously enjoying it more than any of his fancy dog food. "Today," says Michel, "I will eat one in his memory." They stop in front of Luke's. "Wow," says Lorelai, "what a sacrifice." She says that she will go on to the printer's to look at the programs, and Michel goes inside, leaving her on the sidewalk to stare in at Luke, who is looking super-fly in his flannel, beautifully backlit by, I don't know, a grease fire? Whatever, it's romantic, okay? They share a sad wave.
Speaking of romance, Rory arrives back at her apartment to find Logan waiting on her doorstep. She is overwhelmed with happiness to see him, and they go inside to see that, according to the Operation Finish Line schedule, Paris is off experiencing campus life at a bellydancing class. Rory and Logan do some smooching, and Rory says that she needs to talk to him. They sit down and, in serious tones, and in light of the whole thing that happened with Marty, she makes a ridiculous pre-emptive confession. She tells him that the grad student filling in for her grandfather is rather good-looking and that, when she ran into him at the bookstore, she got all silly and, gasp, that she Googled his name to find out more about him. Logan, for his part, is mildly amused but completely understanding. Why Rory would feel like she needs to tell him about this crap, I don't know, but Logan is nice about it: "It's just a crush." He says that he can't be upset about it since he has, on occasion, found other girls attractive. "I love you," he tells Rory, "and I want to be with you." While I am sad that this must mean that Professor Studly was just a device to show us how great Logan and Rory are, and thus we will never see him again, I must admit that it sets up a nice contrast between Logan's new-found maturity and Christopher's...well, never-found maturity. Rory finally has to ask what she's been worried about since Paris said it: "Did I break you?" Logan has no idea what she's talking about, and tells her so, but it only leads to their again declaring how much they feel like they belong to each other. In fact, Logan declares that the whole thing's his fault. He says that he was obviously a jerk about Marty, and now he's got Rory so freaked out that she feels like she has to confess every time she recommends a book to another man: "But you don't. I trust you completely and I'm not worried about us." Aw, MAN. See what you have done to me, Rosenthal? I'm over here getting all starry-eyed about Logan? Rory, in fact, says that she is not worried about them at all, either, and they realize with a start that they are missing out on a chance to watch Paris bellydance. How I wish we all could have seen it.
