And then, finally, the words we've been repeating since just about this time last year: "Kid, you've got to make up your mind. Jess, Dean, Jess, Dean. It's enough already. You want Jess, that's fine. Go get him. There he is! If you think that's the great love of your life, then great! Grab a liver treat and a squeaky toy and run to him. Don't worry about that girl, because I'm sure he will have moved on to somebody else in about an hour." Why would she think that? We've never seen him have a girlfriend before. Lorelai goes on: "But do something. Dean has been sweet and supportive and incredibly patient and now you are officially treating him like dirt and I'm sorry, but not only is that not you, he doesn't deserve that." LHCD. Lorelai concludes, "God, I wish they knew another song." Rory says she knows all of this about Dean. Apparently she reads the forums, too. She says she knows he's great. Lorelai: "Well, knowing this has apparently not stopped you from dragging his heart all over this town." Point for Lorelai. Rory says that's not fair. Lorelai: "Yes, fair! The fairest! The Snow White of Fair." Rory says that she doesn't want to talk about this anymore. I'd like it if they didn't want to talk at all anymore. My fingers. Falling. Off. Lorelai says that Rory should break up with Dean if she doesn't want to be with him anymore, because it's not fair to him, and he should be with someone who loves him. She says this is all wrong. Rory ad libs that she gets it and she wants Lorelai to stop because CuteDean is late on his cute. I mean "cue." "Rory!" he says in an awkward cut as we watch him run to her. Rory says she thought his plane didn't get in until 6 PM. CuteDean says he managed to get an earlier flight. It's like when the Pink Ladies brought Sandy over to Danny during the bonfire and he's all "That's cool, baby. I mean, you know how it is, rockin' and rollin' and whatnot." Lorelai says she's off to Emily's, and tells Rory and CuteDean to talk all night. Lorelai gives a very final-sounding "See you later." CuteDean holds Rory's hands and asks if he interrupted. Rory says he didn't. Her face is totally upset as she pretends she's happy to see him. They give a tiny, tongueless kiss as Rory pulls her face away and hugs CuteDean instead. They hug passionlessly as Rory watches Jess still making out with a girl he must have paid to kiss him until Rory broke up with CuteDean. CuteDean stands motionless as we watch Rory watch Jess. We. Get. It. LHCD. Wow, do we get that, too. Was that the longest, talkiest scene in Gilmore Girls history? Because I think it was.
