The circle's just starting over at Luke's. April is miserable, lying in bed, clutching her stomach and running a fever. Desperately, Luke grabs up the phone and calls Lorelai for advice. Well, who else is he going to call, right? Not April's mom, right? Or a doctor. I just mention it because I got all happy when I saw Luke call Lorelai, thinking "Ah! Here it is! They've shown us that Lorelai is uncomfortable with these changes with Chris, and now here's Luke calling and hope is alive!" But then Luke and Lorelai...just talk about April's symptoms; Lorelai diagnoses her over the phone with appendicitis and recommends that Luke take her to the emergency room.
So he does. And...that's all that happens. Luke is in the hospital waiting room, listening to a married couple behind him have a stress-fight about how much time is left on their meter. Oh, wait. Limited time on the meter! Okay, now I see the symbolism: relationships are hard; thanks, college. Luke finally snarks at them that five minutes have passed since they started their inane conversation about the meter, so they might as well go put in another quarter and call it a day, and they hmph out while Lorelai walks in. She's just come to lend some moral support, she says, covering her newly-ringed left hand with her coat as Luke sincerely thanks her for being there. They have slightly awkward chat when the doctor comes out to get Luke and makes it way more awkward, assuming that the two of them are April's parents. "Oh, no," Lorelai says, "I'm not, uh..." and realizes as she points to herself that Luke has seen her wedding band. Oops. He stares at her for a second, confused, and before either of them can really say anything, the doctor leads Luke to April's room and Lorelai walks out, looking uncomfortable.
Logan's on the phone in his apartment talking business when Rory comes in. He immediately hangs up and apologizes to her for their fight: "I was way out of line. You know that I love it that you're here. I was just upset." Rory sighs. She admits that he had every right to be upset: her article was mean and judgmental and did not indicate the way she really feels. "I have total respect for everything you do," she tells him, sincerely. "I'm so proud of you." Logan smiles, and says he knows; the truth is, he wouldn't be so upset if Rory wasn't such a good writer. Why are they so cute?! Damn this show to hell, I don't even know what to feel anymore! Black is white! Up is down! Sigh. Rory and Logan get all smoochy and make with the "I love you"s, but Rory does say that she is going to have to move out of his apartment, anyway; she needs to do it for herself.
