Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lorelai (Lauren Graham) continues to be harassed by her mom Emily (Kelly Bishop) vis-à-vis her broken relationship with Christopher (David Sutcliffe); also, she doesn't quite know how to handle the situation when the combustible Kirk (Sean Gunn) asks her out on a date. Rory (Alexis Bledel) is confronted by an angry Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), who wastes no time telling her that he wasn't entirely lonely during the summer. Paris (Liza Weil) displays her heightened social consciousness by campaigning in favor of raised hemlines at Chilton. And the Independence Inn is invaded by a persistent mouse.
