Paris and Rory are freezing at their Burmese Prisoner Petition table. Nobody's signing, and the girls are shivering. They have a prop of a bowl of rice. "Enjoy your Maxim," Paris shouts to a student. "You couldn't read that in Burma!" Rory complains that everyone's a hypocrite, not signing their petition. Paris jumps up to tell everyone that they suck. She knocks over their table. We see that the rice is just a styrofoam ball. Rory and Paris bicker until Glenn stops by the table. He puts down a sandwich, puts on some gloves, grabs his sandwich and leaves. He just needed a place for his sandwich, you see. Cue the rain.
Soaking wet Rory and Paris run into their dorm room. A girl staring at the storm asks, "Is it raining?" Paris shouts, "No, it's National Baptism Day. Tie your tubes, idiot!" Paris and Rory strip off some of their wet clothes.
Rory and Paris run into their bedroom, arguing over who gets the radiator. They strip off even more clothes, frantic, dripping wet, shivering. They jump into their beds, apparently soaking wet, wishing for warmth. Paris realizes that it's warm in Florida. Rory says that Spring Break is "girls gone wild and boys doing the twist." She says that they aren't "Spring Break-y." Paris and Rory say the word "warm" to themselves a few times, mulling it over.
Lorelai's. Rory packs, asking where her bathing suit is. Lorelai doesn't even remember Rory having a bathing suit, but she comes in to help. Lorelai grills Rory on a few things, like what Glenn is driving and whether he is a good driver. Rory is honest in her answers, and Lorelai reminds her that she'll probably have to tell a few lies in order to make her mother feel better. I love Lorelai's blue ribbon shirt. She finds Rory's very chaste one-piece bathing suit. "Now we just have to find the wimple that goes with it," she adds. Hee. Rory asks if she was supposed to clear this trip with Lorelai first, since she doesn't live in the house anymore. Lorelai says she just needs to know about things ahead of time and feel as if she has veto power. She points out that feeling like she has veto power isn't the same thing as actually having veto power. Rory asks if Lorelai's worried. She reminds Lorelai that she's only going to get some sun and to read. Lorelai says that it's always the good kids who have never had a drink who go to Spring Break and go completely crazy and fall out of windows (which happened that Palm Springs Spring Break I experienced). It might have been a good episode to see Rory try new things and go a little crazy. But oh, well. There's always next year. Eventually she'll be legally able to sip a glass of wine, and then she'll be crazy. Lorelai tells Rory not to drink, and that after she's done not-drinking to drink tons of water and take two aspirin. My mom would never have let me drive across the country in the middle of the night to go to Spring Break in Florida when I was only nineteen. She didn't even like me going out until 3 in the morning. On campus. ["I had a curfew when I was twenty-one, so all of this is totally alien to me." -- Wing Chun] Lorelai tells Rory to take Paris around with her all the time, since not much bad could happen with Paris in the mix. Glenn honks outside. Lorelai hopes they'll stop by a bathing-suit store for Rory on the way. Rory pouts that her suit is fine. Lorelai says it is nice to be able to go from the beach to the mosque without having to change.
