Back at the table, everyone's setting down food and plateware as Luke asks where Jess is. Rory says that Jess is in the kitchen and on his way. Lorelai hands Luke a plate of food. He says, "I'm sorry, you must have mistaken me for you." "Too much?" Lorelai asks. Sookie says she forgot the garlic bread and Lorelai goes to the kitchen to get it.
In the kitchen Lorelai looks around for Jess. She can't find him, and eventually walks out back. She sees Jess open a bottle of beer. "Oh, for me? Hey, thanks," she says, and takes the beer. She takes a sip and says, "Refreshing." Lorelai asks if Jess isn't hungry. He says he isn't, really. Lorelai assumes that Jess doesn't want to be in Stars Hollow. Jess snarks that this whole place is so golly-darn-gee-terrific, and isn't life swell? Lorelai says that she's done the whole broody-teen thing and troubled-teen thing and angry-teen thing and she did them all very well. "In heels, no less," she adds. Jess puts on his Manson Lamps for this scene. Lorelai says that Luke is a great guy and that he's trying to do his best with Jess and he wants the best for Jess and that Jess is lucky to have Luke. Jess asks whether Lorelai is fucking his uncle, because there's no other reason for her to be fawning all over the place about how great he is. "You're either really naïve, or you're getting some," he says. Lorelai gets offended and says the awkward line about how there are very few times in her life when she's wanted a cream pie to smash into someone's face, but she'd like a cream pie right now. It's like this episode is dubbed and they dubbed "gun" into "cream pie." Jess says that Lorelai's not being very neighborly. Lorelai says this is her house and she can talk however she wants, so ha-ha. Jess says that Lorelai doesn't know him or his mother or Luke, so she should "Dr. Laura" somebody else. Lorelai says she's going inside and tells him to stay out of her fridge.
