Hello, CuteDean! I've missed you. Lane, Rory, and CuteDean are in Rory's living room. Rory and CuteDean are keeping a respectable distance between them as they eat pizza. Lane is calling Dave's house, hanging up once he answers. CuteDean says he knows it's a stupid question, but he wonders why Lane can't just talk to him. Lane tells CuteDean that Dave called yesterday to say that they were still looking for a rehearsal space, and that he'd call when he had more news. If she called today, she'd just look desperate and he'd know that she likes him. Rory says that she used to do the same thing to Dean. CuteDean asks why she hung up on him and didn't say anything. Rory says he'd know that she liked him. CuteDean says he liked her too. Rory didn't know that, though. CuteDean points out that they could have just started liking each other sooner if she had spoken up. Rory says this is a girl thing, so CuteDean tells them to let him know when he's supposed to pay attention again. Lane says she's going to love Dave forever and he'll never know it. CuteDean, "He would if you coughed." Rory chastises CuteDean for making a joke and CuteDean says, "Sorry," just like he's Matt Damon. Lane says it's a good thing that Dave's home and not out with a girl. CuteDean speculates that Dave could be home with a girl. This causes the two girls to freak out, and Lane decides to call again, this time paying attention to the background noises. You know, we can't play this game anymore, the calling and hanging up thing, because of both Caller ID and *69. Hasn't Amy Sherman-Palladino realized that? There's no anonymity in stalking anymore. Lorelai smells pizza and pushes herself into a tiny corner of the couch so that all the actors are all in the frame. Rory fills Lorelai in on what Lane's doing. CuteDean mentions that he suggested she talk to Dave, and Lorelai says that CuteDean's a boy who wouldn't understand. Lane heard Quadrophenia in the background. Rory declares it "classy, but not date-like." CuteDean worries that perhaps Dave met a girl who's a major Who fan. "Why are you causing trouble?" Rory asks. Lorelai asks Rory if she can talk to her in the other room, which sounds like someone's in trouble or bad things are going to be discussed, but no. Lorelai and Rory leave. Lane sits beside CuteDean, still holding the phone. "Go ahead," CuteDean says to Lane, taking another bite of pizza. Lane dials the phone again.
