Two double dates. Rory and Dean set up Lane with Dean's friend, and Sookie and Jackson's first date includes Lorelai and Jackson's cousin.
After Lorelai encourages Sookie to ask out Jackson, she finds herself on the double date from hell with Jackson's cousin, Rune, which makes Luke jealous enough to finally work up the courage to ask Lorelai out. Meanwhile, Rory and Lane get into trouble when they double date with Dean and his friend Todd without telling their moms.
