Like meat and potatoes, like salt and tomatoes, the Gilmore girls belong together: Rory comes home. And a super-smart middle schooler shows up at Luke's Diner with a startling idea for a science-fair project.
Luke becomes jealous when Lorelai receives a phone call from Christopher. Luke makes a big deal about being honest with each other, but when he discovers that he has a daughter he never knew about, he is unsure of how to tell Lorelai. After Rory moves into Lane's apartment, re-enrolls in Yale, and scores herself a job, Rory and Lorelai take the first steps towards reconciliation.
