Plot Overview

Disaster in a blue dress. Rory dines at the Huntzbergers...and does not measure up to the family's idea of a suitable girl for Logan. With Sookie on bed rest, Luke fills in as chef at the Dragonfly.

Rory, Paris and Kirk are at Lorelai's house, recovering from their over indulgences of the previous day when Lorelai arrives with tacos, the perfect hangover food.

When Rory returns to Yale, she goes directly to Logan's room to tell him that they are through. When faced with the prospect of her leaving, he says he wants to be her boyfriend.

Paris arrives back in her dorm room to find Doyle. He has been there all weekend while she was in Stars Hollow thinking he was avoiding her.

At the inn, Lorelai finds out that Sookie has been assigned to immediate bed rest and won't be returning to the inn to cook dinner. Desperate, she calls Luke and he comes over and saves the day. Sookie, however, doesn't trust him, so she has people taking her food to test, and she keeps calling Luke to criticise his cooking.

Rory and Logan arrive back at his dorm to find a lovely blond girl waiting for them. Logan greets her warmly and introduces her to Rory as Honor, his sister. Then he introduces Rory to Honor as his girlfriend, which really surprises Honor. Honor is engaged and wants Logan to come to dinner to help her break the news to their parents.

Rory goes back to Stars Hollow to get her blue dress, then goes with Logan to dinner. At dinner, Logan's grandfather and his mother are very restrainted, and something is on their mind. Eventually it comes out that Honor's engagement is not the problem, Logan calling Rory his girlfriend is the problem. They don't think she is good enough to marry into the family. There is an arguement, and Logan leaves taking Rory with him.

Loralei: Uh, baby you lost me at carrots. Which, by the way, was the first draft of you had me at hello.

  • Jerry Maguire 'You had me at hello.' is the line after the famous monologue when Jerry returns from the winning game to make up with his wife.

Paris: You're Annette Bening.

  • No idea what this means.

She says this when Rory says that Logan has commited to her. She compares her to Annette Bening because Annette got the once famous bachelor, Warren Beatty, to marry her!

Rory: Hm. Remind me to tell you about the time my mother wore a shirt with a rhinestone penis on it and my grandma had her car towed.
