Back in NYC, Rory is at Logan's apartment, in a rush, and pissed that Logan is lounging around and not ready to leave with her for Stars Hollow. She tries to make him go with her in the car, but instead, he makes her sit down and finally breaks it to her that his company has gone bust before it even got started. He's lost everyone's money -- his, his father's, the hot dog vendor's, the janitor's, everybody's. He tells Rory that there's a lawsuit that has come up against them that apparently has merit, and therefore they are all screwed. Rory doesn't understand why he hasn't told her about any of this if it happened weeks ago. "I don't know," he says. "I thought maybe I could fix it." Trying to encourage him, Rory says that they can find a way to make it work, but he sadly says no, there's nothing to be done: "This is huge." When Rory tries to Pollyanna him out of it again, Logan snaps, "This isn't something you can fix with a plucky good attitude and a can-do spirit." Aw. Logan has never watched this show, I guess, because hello, a can-do spirit is the answer to most every problem. Rory asks what his dad is saying about all of this, and when she finds out that Logan has been avoiding him, she tries to give a lecture on how Logan will have to talk to him eventually. "Rory," says Logan, "don't give me any grief about this. Any minute now, Mitchum is going to be busting through that door, telling me what a gigantic failure I am." Finally, Rory gets it. She tells Logan how very sorry she is about it all, says they'll get through it no matter what, and adds that she will rush back from the party as soon as she can, cake in hand. "No," he says, "you don't have to rush back." She tells him she knows, but that she wants to. But no, says Logan, he's not going to be there: he's going to Vegas with Colin and Finn. Rory's pissed. Logan can go to Vegas but not Stars Hollow? His assiness of old is creeping back. I knew it was too good to be true!
