Rory is at the Dragonfly, but can't find her mother. She finds CuteDean instead. She's so frantic that CuteDean asks her what's wrong. She says she's fine, but babbles into craziness. CuteDean takes her outside. Rory begins to fake-cry as CuteDean pulls her to the ground and asks her to talk. Rory is very bad at the fake cry. I don't even know why you'd bother doing it if it's going to be so fake. Rory says that she's a failure and that everything is falling apart. She thought she had it under control but she doesn't. Everybody can handle the classes, but she can't, and she's supposed to take five classes since Richard did. She doesn't know how to tell Richard she failed. She didn't even get a chance to fail; she dropped a class. It's a really big deal because she's not a drop-a-class person. She gets good grades and handles things. Lane's not around anymore and she misses her. She liked having Lane at school. She hasn't talked to her mom and she needs to talk to her and she's not around. Rory whines that she's failing and she can't handle it. CuteDean holds her as she says she's messing everything up. She then says that CuteDean shouldn't have to be nice to he, since she was horrible to him, and now he's married to someone nice. Side note: remember how the radio promos for this episode make it sound like Rory throws herself at Dean, and Dean gently tells Rory that she doesn't love him? I want that episode. CuteDean tells Rory she's not a failure. Rory dissolves into words like "can't" and "Mom" and "failure" and "I don't know what to do." I'm so there with you, Rory. CuteDean holds Rory as she cries, and tells her it's okay.
