Post-cast, Christopher asks what they're going to do next. Rory says she has to go home and work on her campaign platform. Lorelai boasts that their "little Hillary Clinton" is running for student office. Rory repeats that the elections are on Friday, and that she's torn on which way she wants to votes to go. Lorelai says she spent four hours working on campaign buttons, so she wants Rory to win. When did that happen? Rory moans that if she wins, she has to be vice-president next year. Also she'll have to go to Washington, D.C. for the summer on a leadership program. Then she says it'll be six weeks in a dorm room with Paris. Six weeks is not a summer. ["I thought she meant she'd be spending her 'whole summer' in Washington in the sense of spending the bulk of the summer there." -- Wing Chun] Christopher offers to come back Thursday night, take them out to dinner, and then break into Chilton to tamper with the votes. Rory and Lorelai say they can't, since Thursday is Sookie's rehearsal dinner. When was Sookie's bachelorette party? Bridal shower? Sookie's getting screwed. So, is the wedding on a Friday or a Sunday? They said Sunday, but why is the rehearsal dinner on a Thursday? For real, when will this show ever get a day right? I think they do it just to screw with us. It's getting more and more blatant. "If you're gonna be in the area Thursday night, you could come with us to dinner," Lorelai says, trying to sound casual. Be in the area? When does Boston become "in the area"? Christopher offered to drive down just for dinner. Well, whatever, he's muscled his way into the rehearsal dinner. Lorelai says that Christopher would love it and that Sookie's cooking for a thousand. Poor Sookie's doing this entire wedding all by herself. The rehearsal dinner is supposed to be done by the groom's family. Rory adds that she's "bringing Dean," as if that makes it okay for Christopher to crash the party. Christopher says he'll go. Lorelai says it's great and that she'll tell Sookie.
Cut with breakneck speed to Thursday night. The party. There are so many people in this wedding party, if this is the rehearsal dinner. Kirk is clinking his glass, and Miss Patty announces that Kirk is going to give a toast. The room quiets and Kirk says, "Ladies, gentlemen, honored guests! Who owns the silver Volvo, because you're blocking me in?" Everyone moans. There are complete strangers in this room, but CuteDean's towering over everybody. Miss Patty says that it was better than the toast Kirk made at some other wedding, but they don't give us any more information, so it's hard to share a laugh on that inside joke. Christopher asks how long he should wait before he moves his Volvo. Christopher is kind of an asshole. Lorelai tells him to wait another ten minutes. She's kind of an asshole, too. And she's the only one so dressed up for the party. Kirk pleads with someone to move the car, since his mom's waiting and he's got to go. "This isn't funny!" he shouts as everyone openly laughs at him. Poor Kirk.
