Emily and Richard throw an Yale alumni party.
9 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The party is actually for Rory to meet new guys because Emily and Richard do not like Dean(Jared Padelecki). When she goes, only Rory's grandparent's friends and their SONS! (Including Logan!) Anyway, she is at first having the worst time, and then she calls Lorelai on her date with Luke, and after the party calls them and has a discussion. A boy walks up to Rory and says, " Apparently, we're made for each other". Then, Logan steps in and wraps his arm around her and says, " Thanks for taking care of my girl. I'm late, and she would be wondering where I am, then get bored and leave. That wouldn't be good, would it?" Then the other guy says, "You two are together?" "Going on 1 and a half years!" Rory wraps her arm around him. The guy leaves and Rory says, " Your a life saver!" Logan grabs the champagne glass and says, " At boring parties like these, we like to make a party of our own! Come on Ace, let's go!" She was having a fun time until Logan says, " So, who's it gonna be?" Rory says, " I don't know, I'll have to ask my boyfriend!Oh no! What time is it?" " 8:45." She goes outside, all the guys behind her, and steps out the door. Dean dumps her, and she starts crying. Logab comforts her and goes back inside. Meanwhile, on Lorelai's date, TJ, Liz's husband comes in talking about Liz, and how women suck, won't go away. Then Liz comes in an they start fighting, and the date is over. Lorelai goes home with a WHOLE cheesecake, and that is pretty much the end of the episode.
