Rory panics when she suddenly realizes that she lost the bracelet Dean made for her, and when a suspicious Lorelai catches Jess in Rory's room, she accuses him of stealing the bracelet. Meanwhile, Luke goes a little stir-crazy after living with Jess in the tiny apartment over the diner, and he impulsively buys the building so he can expand.
Did You Know?
Rory speaks of Luke and says to Lorelai "You called him Duke for two years just to make him mad." Originally, the diner owner was supposed to be a woman named Daisy, but was then changed to a male character. According to Amy Sherman-Palladino
, she just changed the name and didn't make any changes to the dialogues. In another interview, Scott Patterson
said that the second dialogue he got for the audition had his character misspelled as Duke (instead of Luke). Rory's line seems to be an inside joke about that. See more
In this episode, Luke's bathroom is suddenly on the opposite side of the apartment from where it always has been. See more
