CuteDean enters with PointlessSister. Maybe Daniel wrote Clara's three seconds from last season. Rory asks Clara if her dress is a Stella McCartney. Why would Rory ever ask anybody that? Clara informs Rory that her dress is a Wal-Mart. She says her mother bought the dress for tonight. Why would CuteDean and Clara come but not a Mama or PapaDean? I want to see these people. CuteDean gets mighty pissy when he sees Luke and Jess enter the hotel as well. Rory asks if it's a problem. Dean explains how Jess hit him in his fake fight. Rory asks why Jess would do that, and CuteDean pulls the biggest insult in teen family dramas: the word "jerk." Jess waves toward Rory, and CuteDean says that Jess had better not do that all night.
In the kitchen Sookie is upset that something she's cooking doesn't taste ye olden enough. Lorelai walks in and shrieks when she sees "naked Rune." He's putting on his knickers, complaining that they won't go past his thighs. Lorelai asks why Rune is getting dressed in the kitchen. Rune says that all of the other rooms are full. Sookie says his pants are too small. Lorelai tells him that he can't reduce the size of his thighs quickly, so he needs to find some bigger pants. He hops off. Lorelai asks Sookie if everything is under control. Sookie says that her soup needs something kind of small, tart, white, and spicy. She then remembers that she's trying to think of salt. Lorelai is a bit concerned that Sookie has forgotten the word for "salt," but Sookie now seems very happy with herself and her cooking and salt. Lorelai tells one of the chefs to have the oxygen ready.
