Lorelai is giggling as she sits at the kitchen table. She tells Rory she's figured out who her dance partner should be. Lorelai stares at Rory. "Bye!" Rory says, starting to stand up. Lorelai reminds Rory that she loves Lorelai. "Not at this moment, I don't," Rory says. Lorelai says that this contest is important to her, and that she knows that Rory would never fall asleep or chase a pie. Rory says she can't dance. Lorelai says they'll dress up and it'll be fun. She points out that Rory's light, so she'll be easy to hold up when she gets tired. Rory moans a "Mom!" Lorelai adds that they'll have a "mother/daughter gimmick" that'll be a real crowd-pleaser. Rory says she can't dance with Lorelai because this is (somehow) Dean's first marathon: "We were gonna go and watch and hang out and he's totally looking forward to it. I told him how Andrew gets into a fight with his date in the first fifteen minutes and storms off the floor. I told him about Taylor getting punch-drunk at Hour 15 and telling stories about how he always wanted to be a magician. And, oh! I told him how when Kirk wins he likes to take his victory lap around the floor to the theme from Rocky. I was gonna show him all those things." And now, since Rory told us about it all, we don't have to see them, either. Of course, Lorelai doesn't care about anybody else's cares and desires, so she pouts until Rory caves, because Rory will pick just about anybody before she'll pick Dean. Rory says she'll have to ask Paris if she can get out of working on The Franklin on Saturday, and if Paris says yes, then she'll be Lorelai's partner. Lorelai hugs Rory and tells her that she loves her. "You should sell cars," Rory pouts. Lorelai agrees. Why aren't Rory and Dean entering the contest? Lorelai is very happy that she's going to win a big, fancy trophy.
