Sookie and Lorelai sip coffees while they watch CuteDean work. They are actually paying him to hang up a rather light-looking picture. They thank him for working extra hours; he thanks them for the extra money. CuteDean sees that the wire on the back of the frame has snapped. "I can fix that," he says. Sookie calls him a superhero. Man, I hope Sookie and Lorelai never have to deal with a flat tire. CuteDean leaves to...apparently twist together two wire ends, which really should be done in another room entirely. Sookie asks Lorelai what she thinks of the onion soup she made today, and whether it's good enough for the opening. Lorelai insists that Sookie make her famous zucchini soup. Jackson is worried that the zucchini aren't doing well, so Sookie's looking for a backup. Lorelai is pretty sure their entire business will crumble if Sookie doesn't serve the zucchini soup at the opening.
This very engaging conversation is interrupted by the sounds of CuteDean and Lindsay arguing. (Again, the first word said to her is her name, so we know who she is.) Lindsay's mad that CuteDean's working all the time, and unable to go out and have fun with her. He reminds her that they need money. Lindsay says she misses her husband. It appears as though Lindsay's using CuteDean's extra money to get extra fake tans. The girl is turning orange. Lindsay puts her hands on her hips and calls CuteDean "incredibly selfish." She says he never, ever thinks about her. Neither do we, so I can't blame him. CuteDean reminds Lindsay that townhouses and cars cost money. Lindsay says she waits at home all day for him, and he never even calls her during the day like he says he will. I guess this means Lindsay doesn't have a job? Why the hell did these two get married, anyway? Sookie and Lorelai just keep on eavesdropping. I can't believe Lorelai doesn't call Rory and hold up her cell phone. Lindsay complains that she's bored: "I wanna go out with my husband. Hello? We're married here." If I ever say "Hello?" to Stee as part of an argument, he has full permission to leave me forever. CuteDean tells Lindsay he'll be done in a couple of hours. Lindsay doesn't want to wait that long, and leaves to hang out with her real friends. He asks when she'll be home. "When I get home," she says, and stomps off. "That's nice, Lindsay," CuteDean says. "That's real nice." Lindsay leaves with a "Whatever, Dean." Sookie and Lorelai stare at each other solemnly.
Luke drives down the street listening to his self-help tape. The tape wants him to complete sentences like, "I feel angry because..." Luke: "I am listening to this tape." Luke feels hopeful because... "this tape must end eventually." Luke wonders if anybody's ever kicked an audiotape's ass. Luke, meet Stee.
