Stupid bar. Graham and his buddies are currently re-enacting a scene from Good Will Hunting while joykill Rory sits at a nearby table. She must have a fake I.D. for sure, because someone served that girl beer. Rory's pouty, unhappy that she ended up with a group of frat boys. Couldn't she have figured this out before they got to the bar? It's not like they were wearing masks. And there are no other girls with them. Graham would never have invited Rory to such a thing and whatever this subplot is stupid. Rory's unhappy. When is she not? Moving on. Graham can't figure out why Rory's no fun, and she tells him to go hang with his friends. He tells her to lighten up. Rory mopes. The boys agree that it's time to continue on the pub crawl. Rory's apparently never heard of such a thing. The boys brag about being great drunk drivers, and Rory lets them drive away. I guess Rory really is the worst friend in the world. Anyway, then she doesn't have any money and there's some dumb ATM thing (the party for the girl playing the waitress erupts into cheers after her one line) and then blah, blah, blah and Rory makes a cell-phone call, and for some reason it's not to her mother, who is on the other end of that Nextel beepy-button thing in her brain. Someone's smoking in that bar!
(mf)Todd Lowe and Brian play videogames. Lane answers the door. It's her mother again. The boys pause the game and go back to making tea. MamaLane: "This we'll clean up. Temporary fridge. You two are girls." She says she's ready for her tea now.
Stars Hollow is rocking out to some Kajagoogoo as Kirk plays DJ. You can tell that the scene was filmed without any music because nobody's dancing to the same beat and they all stop dancing at different times and the song doesn't even end properly. They're also all making that goofy face actors make when they're pretending to dance when there's no music. Kirk speaks in a fake Ren Faire accent as Liz and T.J. take the dance floor for their first dance. Lorelai pretty much walks through the dance floor over to Luke and asks him if he's okay and if they're okay. She doesn't really apologize, of course. She says maybe she shouldn't have made fun of Jess, since he might be trying. Kirk asks others onto the dance floor. Lorelai talks to Luke like he's stupid, saying his food might be cold so they could go get some more. Instead, Luke asks her to dance. After some gentle teasing, she accepts his offer. They start dancing rather chastely, holding hands at arm's length, but as Luke sweeps her off her feet they get closer and closer. The smiles become less goofy and more genuine, their faces are close to touching as they're quiet and happy. Lorelai rests her head on Luke's shoulder as we pull back from the dance floor.
