While watching a marathon TV showing of The Donna Reed Show, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) poke fun at the ancient sitcom's outdated values -- only to be brought up short by Dean (Jared Padalecki), who declares that he'd like to have an "old-fashioned" spouse to come home to. The ramifications of this situation permeate throughout the rest of the episode, which include a mad chase after a baby chick and a moment of (almost) truth in the relationship between Lorelai and Luke (Scott Patterson). David Sutcliffe makes his first series appearance as Lorelai's former beau -- and Rory's father -- Christopher Hayden.
