Lorelai is in the fridge. All of the food is on the floor around her. She's holding up the phone inside the fridge, asking the person on the line if he or she can hear the noise the fridge is making. The person on the phone keeps making Lorelai make noises with her mouth to describe the noise. Rory puts the box of cornstarch on her dresser and looks at it longingly. Lorelai is still complaining to the appliance people. She demands they come by to fix it. She hangs up and complains about the house to Rory. She kicks things and says she hates her life. Rory pretends to do homework.
Lorelai enters Lane's mother's antique shop. Lane's mother walks up and scares her. "Rory's not here," she says. Lorelai says she came by to pick up the rocker she bought three weeks ago. "Six weeks ago," Lane's mom says, which is pretty close to accurate, since I think that happened in episode one. Lane's mother complains that her shop isn't a "storage facility" and tells Lorelai that she wants her to pick up her things as she buys them. Lorelai apologizes and says she's been busy. Lane's mother says that if Lorelai wasn't so busy, she could probably keep an eye on her daughter and keep her from kissing boys. Lorelai makes a comment that perhaps Lane's mother has been sniffing paint. MamaLane goes on about how Lane is an impressionable girl, and she doesn't need to hear stories about Rory kissing boys in the grocery store. She gets very disgusted and says, "The grocery store. Where we buy our food." Hee. Lorelai asks again what MamaLane means by "kissing in the grocery store." They have MamaLane go full Long Duck Dong to say, "Yes. The grocery store. Kiss. Kiss. Kiss!" Married. Sheesh. Lorelai says she didn't know because Rory didn't tell her. She excuses herself and leaves. "You left your chair!" MamaLane shouts to no one. We fade to commercial.
Oh, how mortifying. Lane and Rory have to wear these pilgrim outfits, sitting at some Cornucopia thing. Lane keeps asking for more details about the kiss. Lane has found out information on CuteDean. He's from Chicago. He likes Nick Drake. What's up with the WB and Nick Drake, by the way? He's allergic to walnuts. He has an old girlfriend in Chicago. Named Beth. Lane's been talking to CuteDean's best friend. Rory hates the name Beth. "It's so...Beth." CuteDean's been talking about Rory non-stop for weeks. They giggle and squeal.
Miss Patty is asking Luke for some autumn decorations. Lorelai sits at a table and watches Rory and Lane giggle in the pumpkins. Luke goes to fill up Lorelai's full coffee and starts yelling when she doesn't respond right away. He yells that he can't believe even she's upset that he hasn't put up a giant turkey. She says she just wasn't listening, but now she's concerned about him. He pours a teaspoon of coffee into her cup and apologizes for yelling. He says she looks upset. She says she isn't. He insists she is. She says she's not. He says she looks like something's on her mind. She says there isn't. He insists. She insists. He insists. She says some streamers would look lovely in the diner. He walks off in a huff. This is the first show where people will sit in my living room and watch the show no matter how long I keep it on pause.
