Lacey's phone rings; it's Logan, for Rory. She's forwarded her phone to Lacey's because of the many calls she's getting for the event. "I consider myself lucky to be patched through," Logan cracks. He tells her he got the PA system she wanted at the price she wanted. They are interrupted when Paris arrives. Rory says she looks upset. "That and a bulldozer would knock me over," Logan says. Paris is really upset, apparently. She gets snotty with Lacey and comes in telling Rory she's broke. "My parents flipped the bird at the IRS one too many times," she says. "They've frozen everything. All I've got is my trust fund, which doesn't kick in until I'm twenty-five." She's flipping out, and tells Rory about trying to get money from the bank, which did not go so well: "I used a few choice expletives, and a bunch of guys in suits started closing in on me, so I started pacing and yelling 'ATTICA! ATTICA!'" I love Paris. She goes on to say that she's a pauper, and will soon have to play a hurgy-gurdy on street corners, while selling pencils out of a tin cup. Yale is paid for, she says, but...what will she do, for everything else she needs? Rory says she'll have to do what every other person who needs money has to do: get a job. Paris freaks anew. She's never had a job. All her résumé shows is academic achievements, which will not get her far when vying for that coveted position in the garden department of Wal-Mart. Rory tells her to chill; she can give Paris a job right now: "I know you'll be a hard worker; that's a given." Paris says she definitely will be a hard worker, and by the way, she speaks Chinese and Farsi, if that will help. Rory says it's a job serving food at the event, and Paris is glad to accept. She tells the vendors that she'll work her butt off, and she even knows a touch of ancient Aramaic, if that will help out. "If Christ shows up," Ducky drones. Paris has had a long day, and makes her exit after hitting Rory up for $25.
