When Luke wants to do something about Liz's latest boyfriend, who seems to be yet another life-sapping loser, Jess accuses him of being a know-it-all buttinski...and Luke takes the criticism to heart.
Jess' attempts to keep a low profile until Gypsy completes the repairs are not always successful. Taylor puts Kirk in charge of the annual Firelight Festival. Lane follows Rory back to Stars Hollow and a place on the Gilmore couch for the weekend, but isn't quite ready to face her mother. Emily is in a dither about filling a table at a benefit and enlists the help of Lorelai and Jason. Luke is less than impressed by Liz's latest business venture and newly-arrived boyfriend. Richard is suspicious of Jason's father's friendly greeting at the benefit. Jess makes a startling declaration to Rory before he leaves town.
