LORELAI: Why don’t you see if Lane can come with you [to the party]? You know that way if the socialising doesn’t turn out how you planned, you got a friendly face around.
RORY: Okay, good idea. Thank you.
How Mrs Kim ever allowed Lane to go out to a co-ed teenage party in Hartford on the Sabbath when they would be getting home fairly late is a real mystery. Especially if it was in order to comfort Rory over a break up with a boyfriend that Mrs Kim thought she never should have had. I can’t imagine how Lane ever pulled this one off.
