2.13: A-Tisket, A-Tasket: Jess/Rory picnic scene picspam
JESS: Where do you wanna eat?
RORY: Don’t care.
RORY: Where are you going?
JESS: Thought you didn’t care.
RORY: I’m not jumping in the lake.
JESS: No underwater dining, got it.
RORY: Now what?
JESS: Now we sit.
RORY: On the bridge, that’s where we’re gonna eat?
JESS: Yeah, I like this place.
RORY: Wow. A place in Stars Hollow you actually like. I’m stunned.
JESS: It’s got some good memories. You see right over there?
JESS: That’s where Luke pushed me in.
RORY: It’s nice.
JESS: It is.
RORY: So why’d you do it?
JESS: Do what?
RORY: Outbid Dean like that.
JESS: I don’t know. I guess it started as a joke just to bug him, but then he just got so mad, you know? And he is so tall, and I just was looking at him and he’s standing there all tall and mad and I just... I don’t know. It was... it was really funny.
RORY: It wasn’t funny.
JESS: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I didn’t intend to do it. Does that make you feel any better?
RORY: I just don’t wanna be in a fight with Dean.
JESS: I’m sorry about that. You wanna push me in the lake? It’s cathartic, I hear.
RORY: Hm, maybe in a little.
JESS: So why don’t we open this thing?
RORY: Go ahead.
[Jess opens the picnic basket]
JESS: Wow. Not one thing in here that I would remotely consider eating.
RORY: Well, I didn’t make it for you. I made it for Dean.
JESS: And Dean would’ve eaten this? [holds up a container]
RORY: Yes, he would have.
[Jess tastes a forkful of the food and makes a face]
JESS: Dean is an idiot.
RORY: Dean never would’ve fallen for that.
JESS: Ah, ha ha.
RORY: Yeah but I didn’t understand a word of it, so I had to reread it when I was fifteen.
JESS: I’ve yet to make it through it.
RORY: Really? Try it. The Fountainhead is classic.
JESS: Yeah, but Ayn Rand is a political nut.
RORY: Yeah, but nobody could write a forty page monologue the way that she could.
JESS: Okay, tomorrow I will try again, and you will...
RORY: Give the painful Ernest Hemingway another chance. Yes, I promise.
JESS: You know, Ernest only has lovely things to say about you.
RORY: Why are you only nice to me?
JESS: Excuse me?
RORY: An hour ago you were totally screwing with Dean and now you’re totally nice to me.
JESS: You see, it’s the screwing with Dean - that’s an important step to getting here so that I can be nice to you.
RORY: So it was a plan.
RORY: The whole bidding on my basket, it was a plan.
JESS: Okay, I’m officially starving.
RORY: And officially evasive.
JESS: Come on, I’ll get you a pizza.
RORY: Answer my question.
JESS: Do you like pepperoni?
RORY: Not going to, are you?
JESS: We can just get it on half if you want.
RORY: Okay, I give, let’s go.
JESS: If you insist.
