Stars Hollow sure knows how to throw a party. The entire place is covered in lights and party favors and music. There are three hundred presents behind Max and Lorelai, who sit in thrones. Now, if the wedding is in three months, what kind of presents did they get, here? Kirk walks through the party with a megaphone, announcing that the buffet line is clogging in Sector B. There are so many people living in Stars Hollow now, and they're all sitting at tables together, eating food and listening to music. Others are dancing. It's very casual. Rory wears another horrible dress, this time with blue paisleys, and hands Lane a CD. "Hey, Mr. DJ. Put a record on," she tells Lane, adding that everything sounds great, but that she might want to ease off on playing any more of The Damned. Lane asks what time it is. It's eight. Lane's flight's at ten. "Have I told you how much I'm going to miss you?" Rory asks. Uh, no, Rory. Not really. Lane tells Rory that she has to write to her every day with positive reinforcement. Rory says she'll tie yellow ribbons around old oak trees. Lane says she'll be back for the wedding as long as Lorelai doesn't change the date. Rory says that won't be a problem because Max is teaching a summer course at the University of Toronto (hello, shout-out) and won't be back until the summer's over. Look how in two sentences they just got rid of Lane and Max for what is supposed to be the entire summer. Does next week start the end of summer, since it's still, like, June in Stars Hollow? Why is it still June? And when did Lane find out she'd be back in time for Lorelai's wedding? How does she know that? Is she just getting flown in for the wedding?
Max unwraps a giant Hello Kitty and tells Lorelai that every gift so far has been for her. Maybe because nobody knows who the fuck you are, creepy English teacher? Lorelai says she's the queen of Stars Hollow, and he is just her jester. He says he happily accepts that position and leans in for a kiss. Lorelai says she doesn't know how he can just leave for two months. I'm wondering, too, if the wedding is in three months. How can he just hop away and leave her to have to plan everything? Max says he wants Lorelai to come with him to Toronto. Lorelai says she has to work. Max says that two months is a long time and she might not like him when he gets back. God willing. Why are they just throwing this in here all of a sudden? Lorelai says there's a good possibility that she'll like him just as much when he gets back, and she'll be all ready to get married to him. They kiss. Two little girls run by in bridal gowns.
