Lorelai gets a cell-phone call (I was just seconds off!) from Rory, who's upset because everybody in Yale is done with their finals except her, because she's dumb enough to have a final scheduled on a Saturday. Now, Rory. Everybody knows that the first thing you do when you get your course book for the semester is check the finals schedule. Otherwise you end up with three classes that have finals on the same day, or one final that's a full week after you're done with everything else. You work backwards, from the finals schedule to the earliest hour you're willing to wake up, to the friends you'd like to have in the same class, to the map of where the classes are and if you can catch lunch with friends between, to the ultimate in scheduling: getting all of your classes between Monday and Thursday, giving yourself a three-day weekend for a full semester. Just a little tip from me to you. Always check the finals schedule first. It's at the back of the coursebook. (Note: This is solid advice for students of the University of Texas at Austin. Other school schedules may vary. Recapper takes no responsibility for you having six finals on one day because you scheduled your Fridays off. ["Yeah, you couldn't do that at either of the post-secondary institutions I attended. We didn't get the finals schedule until about a month before they happened. And I want to add, just out of bitterness, that my dad was the registrar of the school where I was an undergrad and I STILL always ended up with a final on the very last day of finals every single semester. I also had a mandatory class on Fridays from 2:30 to 4:30 when I was in my fourth year. No favouritism. Sucked." -- Wing Chun]) Rory grumps through the halls of Yale while everyone around her is in party mode because they're done and she's not even close to being done. Lorelai says she has something to tell Rory about "the J-word." Rory says she's sick of both Jesus and Mel Gibson. Lorelai says that Jess is in town for "that wedding," and she doesn't know where Rory stands on the "Jessometer." She wants to know if Rory wants her to tell her whenever she runs into Jess. That seems a bit obsessive, doesn't it? Rory says she doesn't mind hearing about Lorelai running into him, but she doesn't need to hear it eight times a day if that happens. As Rory talks, we watch Lorelai walk through the lobby of the Dragonfly. A horse is in the background, in the inn. Nobody seems to care. Lorelai doesn't see the horse.
