Jews and Chinese Food is the 15th episode of Season 5 on Gilmore Girls.


OUR LIVES ARE LIKE A "FIDDLER ON THE ROOF" – When Lorelai (Lauren Graham) discovers that Luke's (Scott Patterson) boat is no longer in her garage, the void she feels without Luke seems even more painful. Luke agrees to build sets for the elementary school's production of "Fiddler on the Roof", knowing that Lorelai is the costume designer and hoping that their paths will cross. Meanwhile, Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Marty (Wayne Wilcox) make plans to spend a day together, but Logan (Matt Czuchry) drops by Rory's dorm room and convinces them to come out to dinner. After a terrible evening with Logan's clique, Marty tells Rory how much he likes her, but she admits she has a crush on Logan.
