Rory gets off her bus; CuteDean's already waiting for her. He asks how it went. She says it was a long day. CuteDean's ready to go see Barbarella and wants Rory to bring Lorelai's monkey-face purse so that they can sneak in some candy. Rory stops walking and says she can't do anything tonight because she has a lot of planning to do. She says she's about ten years behind on her extra-curricular activities. She explains to CuteDean that she hasn't done enough to get into Harvard, and that she has to do some volunteer work quickly to make up for it. CuteDean asks why she has to start now and cancel their plans for the evening. Rory says she needs to plan everything because she's so behind. She says she needs to get organized. CuteDean says that summertime is when you hang out and kick back. Rory's face scrunches as she says, "I can't hang out or kick back. I need to find a retarded kid and teach him how to play softball." That's the best line of this episode, by the way. Rory says she's under-qualified and horrible. They're deep into a fight by now, and CuteDean is upset that Rory's blowing him off after already blowing him off once today. He figured that since they just got back together, she might want to spend some time with him. She says that this is about Harvard. CuteDean forgot that Harvard is more important than he is, and he walks off. He says she doesn't have time for him anymore and expresses irritation that none of this can wait one night. Rory asks why he's acting like he's two. CuteDean says he doesn't care about Harvard and just wanted to hang out with his girlfriend, but since he's only two, perhaps he'll grow out of it. They walk off in different directions from the gazebo. Commercial.
