Robert is a student at Yale University with Rory who she meets through Logan Huntzberger. He is first seen at the Life and Death Brigade stunt that Rory is invited to cover for the newspaper and a few months later at a poker game that Logan hosts for his friends.
The confused look on Rory's face when she says it makes it obvious that she made his last name up on the spot to appease her mother, which is later confirmed when Rory asks Robert what his last name is. Robert is seen last while drunkenly planning a final Life and Death Brigade stunt in Costa Rica before graduation with Logan, Colin and Finn.
- Robert's last name is unknown – Rory makes up a fake one to assure Lorelai that she knows him.
