DAVE: I’m sort of an audio geek, sorry.
LANE: No, don’t apologize, I love you . . . for that, for being that way. I love it.
Lane tells Dave she loves him within a few minutes of meeting (not like Rory, who took months of dating before she could say it to her boyfriend). Rory and Lorelai can see at once that Lane and Dave are a perfect match, meaning that Lane is about to get her own romantic subplot.
