Robert goes to fetch Rory a drink that isn't too strong. This allows Logan to swoop in and ask how her date's going. They make small talk about Robert. "Teenage Wedding" plays in the background. Rory's enjoying Logan's jealousy. Logan tells Rory that Robert is "kind of a jerk." No kidding. Rory says she hadn't noticed. Logan grabs Rory's arm and pulls her to a place where he feels more comfortable making out -- another wall that's kind of in a corner but not really. He tells her she looks great. They kiss, and Rory pulls away, looking for Robert. Logan asks how school is. "School's hard," Rory says, with a little catch in her throat. That's what happens when you hang out with people who don't actually have to go to college to be wealthy and successful in life. Logan says it'll make her an upstanding citizen. "God-fearing Christian," Rory adds. More kissing. Logan wants to ditch all of this because he hates that Rory's here with someone else. He wants her to leave with him, go anywhere. Even go to New York for the evening (Jess flashback!), just get out of that party and away from her date. But Rory, surprisingly, does the right thing here, and decides she'll leave with the man she came with. Finn's Vega has found his Mia, and they (impressively) dance us out of the scene.
Luke's complaining about the state of Lorelai's refrigerator -- that it holds nothing but massive quantities of calories. "How are you not four hundred pounds?" he asks. Lorelai answers: "Scientists call it 'The Lorelai Effect.'" He asks whom she's calling. Lorelai is checking to see if Rory left a message. Luke brings over two bowls for the ice cream. "Who's washing those?" she asks. Luke puts the bowls back and grabs two spoons. Lorelai asks if they're out of plastic. Luke goes back to grab two plastic spoons. Lorelai then tells him they'll need four because the plastic ones break. Luke then fetches Lorelai her slippers, chases his tail for fifteen minutes, and pees on the rug. Lorelai tries to explain to Luke that Rory's on a date with a boy who's not her boyfriend because college means dating whoever is standing in front of you at the time. Luke thinks that's what kids are supposed to do, but Lorelai thinks that's not who Rory is. She says she can't talk to Rory about it because she is worried about her Mom status. I suppose with her current relationship with Emily, she'd hate to do something that would push Rory away from her, by disagreeing with the way she's running her life. Luke thinks Lorelai's still the mother, and should do some mothering when Rory needs a little social guidance. Lord knows Rory hasn't dealt much with real people in her life. And by that I mean "mean" people, who didn't grow up with the rose-colored glasses of Stars Hollow. Mean Yale people with sexually transmitted diseases, who probably throw rainbow parties in their parents' guesthouses. I mean...College is great! High school is fun! Huzzah! Naked Kirk wanders through the house, carrying his blankie. Lorelai realizes that they probably didn't lock the front door. Luke goes off to fetch Kirk.
