Chilton. Lunch. Louisa and Fraulein appear to be on a diet on which they count out twelve Chee-Tos each. They chat about boys. Paris sits down with a happy gloat. She tries for six minutes to get Louisa and Fraulein to ask her about her PSAT scores. Fraulein got 500 verbal and 560 math. Louisa got "highlights, just around [her] face." Paris tells Louisa that she'll have to take the test again, and study this time. Anyway, for the next few minutes Paris just goes on and on about how her scores were at her house today and she was really nervous to find out what she got. The script for this scene was easily five pages long. Neither girl asks Paris her score, so Rory finally cuts in and asks. Paris got a 750 math and a 730 verbal. The other girls act all impressed. Smug Rory refuses to tell Paris her scores, saying that it's personal. Paris wants to know how Rory did, and wants to know if Rory is pleased with her score. Rory says she's pleased. Paris asks whether Rory is pleased by just anything, like sunsets. This goes on until a bell rings, signaling everyone but Paris, Louisa, and Fraulein to leave the lunchroom. Oh, man. Take the money! This episode is frustrating, just bantering back and forth about things without anything really happening.
Lorelai can't sleep, so she wakes Rory up. She says she can hear the termites chewing. She wants to go to Sookie's. Rory says it's eleven at night. Lorelai says that somewhere in the world it's still Miller time. Rory tells her to put on some earmuffs to drown out the sound and to go to bed. Lorelai is incredulous that Rory can't hear the termites, and returns to her own room. In the dark, Rory opens her eyes and looks around.
