In the study, Rory's immediately yelling that nothing happened at Miss Patty's with CuteDean. Jess says he didn't get into a fight with Dean. "Bull!" Rory yells. Oooh. She says she's going to find out what happened anyway, so Jess might as well tell her the truth. Jess asks what if Dean had sucker-punched him and he had to defend himself. Rory knows this never would have happened because Dean would never hit anybody. Didn't he hit Tristan? ["I think he just shoved him." -- Wing Chun] Rory says that Jess is "being a jerk" to her grandmother as well. Jess says he's doing his best. "If that means I'm being a jerk, then that's what I am." Suddenly Jess sounds exactly like Taryn Manning, that same scratchy slur. And I can't believe Jess just pulled the "that's what I am" card, my least favorite card to excuse assholic behavior. Jess says that Rory made him come here. He then makes fun of Rory's portrait. Rory says that Jess has embarrassed her in front of Emily. Jess says he's had enough. He says that if Rory's going to "harp on this," then he's leaving. Rory asks if she now has to explain to her grandmother why her boyfriend who was thirty minutes late and showed up with a black eye has now just suddenly left. Jess points out that Rory likes making up stories in her head, so this should be easy for her. Jess leaves, forgetting his coat, and taking her ride home with him. Emily asks if he's getting something from his car. "I don't think so," Rory says. We hear Jess's car start up. "He left," Emily says. "Yeah," Rory says. "He left." Emily says that Rory can take some prime rib back for him. She invites Rory in to eat.
