Over at Logan's, Rory is all suited up for her NYT coffee meeting, and is about to leave when she takes another stab at rousing Logan with aspirin. She's awfully cute to him, considering his dickish behavior of the night before, but when she tells him that his dad's secretary has called three times in the last hour, and he won't tell her what about, she gets testy. Quickly, Rory reminds Logan that she needs him to be ready to leave for Lane's shower the moment she returns: "And I'm gonna need you to drive because I'll have to change in the back, Dirty Dancing-style." When the phone rings again and Logan snaps at her to leave it, Rory turns and leaves.
I can't even explain to you why guns are not drawn in this scene. I can't even recap the words that are spoken -- something about how Liz and T.J. really need the space in their garage to store beads and stuff -- because it's ludicrous to me that it wasn't resolved with punches. Luke's listens to them not explain their rationale for selling his boat out from under him with heretofore unseen calm, just sighing and saying he'll just find another place to store it. Liz rolls her eyes, asking him why in the world he's hanging on to the boat at all, saying that their dad spent twenty years working on the boat; now Luke has spent another twenty. "So?" Luke asks, defensive. "So," says Liz, in a rare moment of lucidity, "how many more generations are going to cart this thing around town? Get rid of it for your own sake before you end up like Dad." Luke gets pissed, aggressively asking what she means. He says that their dad was happy working on the boat, but Liz insists that the man was stuck: "Dad didn't do stuff because it made him happy. He did stuff because he was afraid to do anything else." Luke's feelings are hurt, but he seems to be listening to Liz -- which must be weird, seeing as how she rarely says anything that makes sense. However, after a moment, Luke crosses his arms: "My boat, my decision. I'm not selling it."
