Lorelai's still on the phone with Emily's staff, asking for one of the Gilmores. She knows that Emily told the staff to pretend not to speak English. Luke is now pouting, evening ruined, listening to T.J. and Liz scream at each other in the bathroom. Luke says they can't still be fighting in such a small room. Lorelai suggests that they're having angry make-up sex. This doesn't make Luke feel any better. He apologizes about dinner. Lorelai says it was great: "It was delicious and interactive." In a move I'll never understand, Luke tells Lorelai to go home so that she doesn't have to deal with this. And again, unbelievably, Lorelai does, leaving him with the meal and the fight to deal with. I guess you need a formal invitation to sleep at Lorelai's. Luke gives her an entire cheesecake and says they'll try again tomorrow. Lorelai says that she'll try stirring something next time, now that she's so good at it. They kiss for a while, and Luke thanks her for not being related to him. They kiss some more, and then Lorelai leaves.
The kids have taken over Richard's poolhouse. Colin tells Rory that her father has terrible taste in Scotch. Logan tells him to refill the bottle when he's done so that Rory doesn't get busted. Colin promises he will. Logan gives Rory more champagne. Finn says that drinking is very, very bad, and that they should be punished: "Spank me." Rory says that tomorrow's hangover will be punishment enough. Finn tells Logan to give Rory more champagne. Logan, Lorelai, Liz, Luke, Lane, Lorelai, Lorelai, Louise, Lulu -- can someone buy Gilmore Girls another letter? Logan sits down and compliments Rory's article, and then gives it a few red marks of criticism, which is just the kind of light bondage Rory was looking for. Rory fidgets in her dress. Lorgan asks who's going to win the meat market tonight. The boys all surround Rory, begging to be picked the winner. Rory giggles -- oh, so happy suddenly with all these boys. Finn says he's exotic. "So's the Asian Bird Flu," someone cracks. Logan can't believe there's a room filled with guys and still such slim pickings. Lorelai says she should let her boyfriend help her choose. Logan says he's crushed to learn about her boyfriend. Rory suddenly remembers Dean and asks what time it is. "It's crying time," Finn says. It's 8:45. Rory jumps up to leave, and the boys all follow her, saying they have to see the one who won Rory: "Gotta make sure he's good enough." They're teasing her with whoops and shrieks as she runs to the front door.
