In the midst of planning Lane's baby shower, Rory receives a long-awaited call from The New York Times offering her an informational interview. Lorelai takes over the shower-planning duties and finds herself brokering peace between Lane and Mrs. Kim (recurring guest star EMILY KURODA) over how Lane plans to raise her twins. Meanwhile, Logan finally admits his business disaster to Rory, who offers him her full support. But when Logan announces that he is flying to Las Vegas to blow off steam with his old college pals, Rory is disappointed and worried. After Luke discovers that Liz (recurring guest star KATHLEEN WILHOITE) and T.J. (recurring guest star MICHAEL DeLUISE) are trying to sell his boat, he decides to make some changes in his life and take April (recurring guest star VANESSA MARANO) on a long boat trip over the summer. And Lane is ordered to rest, resulting in her being wheeled through Stars Hollow in her bed to attend the shower at Miss Patty's place.
