The man date has begun. Jackson asks Chris what he thinks of the joint. Christopher says it's great. "Not exactly a Manhattan hot spot," Jackson needles, and Christopher points out that the beer tastes just as good in Stars Hollow as it does in Soho. He's giving it his best shot to make a good impression, asking Jackson about his crops. Apparently it's been an excellent eggplant year; Jackson assures him that he's Christopher's eggplant connection. "Guess I'll have to get rid of my other guy, then," Christopher jokes. Jackson doesn't laugh. Awk...ward. They watch some basketball for a second, and Jackson finally makes his move: "So, you and Lorelai, huh? Quite an achievement. Many have tried, many have failed." Chris makes some noises in agreement. Jackson gives him a long, hard look and drops some metaphorical action on him. He says that what he loves about farming is the commitment: "You have to be there 24/7 for your crops, no matter what. You can have the greatest soil, and perfect seeds, but if you don't have the commitment, you won't get good results. No shortcuts, no quitting." Christopher may be a Backstreet Boy, but he gets it: "It's a lot of responsibility," he agrees, knowing they're talking about Lorelai. "You must really love farming." Jackson: "I do. Sookie and I, we both do." Christopher: "I do, too."
Luke and Anna have met at some random restaurant to talk about April. Forgive me for saying so, but Sherilyn Finn is wearing the most ridiculous, tragic dress ever sewn. Luke thanks her for coming, and says he wanted to talk because April is so upset about the move. "Yeah," Anna says, "I know." Luke says he just wants to make sure that they're doing everything they could to make it easier on April. He suggests that Anna wait to move until the end of the school year. "And you don't think I thought about that?" she asks, irritated. Luke is full of understanding and suggestions. He comes up with a few scenarios, all of which Anna shoots down. "So, maybe we can buy her some plane tickets," Luke suggests, so that April will know when she's coming back and can see her friends. Like, for example, Luke's already told her that she could come stay with him during summers and breaks. The conversation goes from bad to bitchin' awful. Anna wigs, saying that Luke has no right to make those promises to April; she has no idea what they'll be doing during the summer. Luke desperately tries to calm Anna down, but she flips further: "These are my decisions. I'm not going to have you making promises to her that you can't keep." Luke: "So, are you saying she's not coming back?" Anna bitches that all this stuff is her decision, and that she doesn't want Luke interfering with April's life. Stunned, Luke watches as Anna stomps out the door. Before getting a chance to really react, Luke hears his cell phone ring, and answers it to hear a terrifying, murderous scream. Liz is having the baby. "I'm on my way!" he says, and heads out.
