Intercut with Jess in his room. He says that work was fine. He immediately wants to know what Rory did with her day -- every moment, every second. This is because he's already heard that Rory spent the day with Dean, and when she doesn't mention it and lies instead, he calls her on it immediately. She asks how he heard about it. He says it's all over town. He saw a flyer advertising Miss Patty's new show, which declares rave reviews from Rory and CuteDean: "Rory and Dean couldn't stop talking about it." Even the postman says that this show delivers, regardless of postage. Rory says that's an outright lie, because the postman isn't that witty. Rory and Jess then start that Cha-Cha and Danny "We did not go together, Sandy, we just went together" song and dance we all got so familiar with back when Rory was making the same excuses to Dean. Jess says he wants to punch Dean. Rory claims she was kidnapped. Jess asks her again to tell him first when these things happen so he doesn't have to read about them on telephone poles. She promises again. No apologies. Jess asks how the show went. Rory says it will need a lot of postage. Jess asks why the bottom of the flyer reads "Not in any way affiliated with Kirk." Rory says they had a "showbiz spat." Jess then asks in a way that sounds like he's only asking because he's supposed to: "Fill me in." And then, strangely, awkwardly, we fade to commercial, leaving the job of ending the scene to the Smallville promo.
Lorelai's kitchen. Sunday morning. Lane's band is eating snacks. Lorelai has remembered Brian's allergies and brought him melba toast instead. The band discusses their set, which I always find to be so boring -- listening to a band talk about the songs they've written and which order they should sing them in. Todd Lowe mentions that they don't have a love song yet. Lorelai immediately jokes that Lane and Dave should be writing love songs all the time now. Lane and Dave freak out while the rest of the clueless band acts clueless. Todd Lowe brags that he just bit a snack in such a way that it sounded like one of the drum fills in one of their songs. Lane and Dave call him awesome. Suddenly Todd Lowe remembers to ask why Lane and Dave would want to play love songs all the time. Lorelai stumbles out an explanation, that Dave's name ends in "V-E" and Lane's name starts with an "L" and if you change her "A" to an "O" you've got "L-O-V-E." This, of course, placates the band and all is well again. Brian says they should break stuff down because he's got dinner soon. Todd Lowe likes to point. He points at Brian and says that soon he won't be going home to dinner, because they'll be on tour and there will be no home. Brian and Todd leave, carrying snacks. Lorelai immediately apologizes to Lane and Dave for almost blowing their secret love. She asks how long they plan on keeping it a secret, since it seems like so much work. To prove this, Lane and Dave launch into a long discussion about the different routes they must take to leave Lorelai's in order to not be seen by MamaLane. Lane says it's not too complicated. Lane, Lorelai, and Dave then have to start yelling their lines because the background strummy-strummy-la-la is so loud that it's taking over the scene.
