RORY: Yes, no.
RORY: I just don’t want to be queen.
TRISTAN: Me either pause King - I don’t want to be king.
RORY: What about you? You be queen.
PARIS: I’m going to be head of Parliament. I can’t be queen.
RORY: Be both.
PARIS: I can’t be both.
RORY: Why not? It’s our government.

RORY: It can be though, let’s vote

TRISTAN: Uh...you left this handing her her notebook.
RORY: Oh yeah I did. Thanks.
TRISTAN: Sure. both try to go through the doorway together and backup
RORY: Well, that could have been a potential Marx Brothers moment.
TRISTAN: You go first.
RORY: Ok. starts to exit but then turns back I think we need to talk.
TRISTAN: About what?
RORY: Tristan you know about what?
TRISTAN: No I don’t.
RORY: Look, we have a lot of work ahead of us. We also have about two and a half years of being in the same school. I don’t want things to be weird between us. Don’t you think it’d be good to at least try to talk about this?
RORY: Good. They both try to go through the doorway at the same time again I’m gonna go first.
TRISTAN: Right chuckles
Rory and Tristan are outside of Chilton.
TRISTAN: sighs So we’re supposed to talk.
RORY: Yeah. Look about the other night.
TRISTAN: Look, I was upset over Summer.
RORY: Yes and I was upset over Dean.
TRISTAN: So, then it doesn’t mean anything right?
TRISTAN: So then - right, so then that’s it. We just chalk it up to a bad night.
RORY: Ok. I’m sorry I cried.
TRISTAN: No problem.
RORY: I swear it had nothing to do with the kiss.
TRISTAN: I kissed you, you cried. That had to do something with the kiss.
RORY: No, I cried because I was confused. Because I hadn’t cried. I didn’t cry because of the kiss. It was a nice kiss.
RORY: Very nice. Not at all crying material.
TRISTAN: Wanna try it again?
RORY: Well I think someone’s recovering from their heartbreak just fine.
TRISTAN: Yeah I’m all better. small pause I think I’m going to swear off girls for a while.
RORY: Uh, sorry, nothing. You said you were going to swear off girls - it’s funny.
TRISTAN: You don’t think I can?
RORY: No I think you can, I just think it would be hard for you. It’d probably involve some kind of lock up facility, one of those Hannibal Lector masks.
TRISTAN: Ok yes, it would be hard but not impossible.
RORY: Maybe it’s not so much swearing off all girls but swearing off a certain kind of girl.
RORY: Meaning next time maybe you should pick a girl with a little more substance. You know, a girl who’s smart and is driven and has ambition. You know like Paris.
TRISTAN: Are you serious?
RORY: Yeah why not? Paris is smart and cute and interesting and yes she does bring her own unique set of baggage into the mix.
TRISTAN: A matching set.
RORY: But she likes you. She’s crazy about you. She thinks you’re amazing.
TRISTAN: You want me to date Paris?
RORY: Just think about it.
TRISTAN: exhales loudly Me and Paris.
RORY: Louis, I think this is the beginning of a wonderful friendship.
TRISTAN: Who’s Louis?
RORY: Just think. leaves

RORY: goes up to Tristan You told her?
TRISTAN: I didn’t know it was a secret.
RORY: Why would you tell her? What is wrong with you!
TRISTAN: Rory relax, we tried ok, it didn’t work out, it’s no big deal.
RORY: It’s a huge deal to Paris and you didn’t try. One date isn’t trying.
TRISTAN: Rory -
RORY: You said you’d try.
TRISTAN: Hey, I’m sorry Paris is upset ok? But is it better that I keep dating her even thought I like somebody else?
RORY: I didn’t realize. So...you’re still not over Summer huh?
TRISTAN: semi-sarcastically Yeah, I’m not over Summer yet. leaves, Rory looks confused or feels bad for him

RORY: I did.
TRISTAN: Well I mean with something other than a bunch of dead black and white women.
RORY: What, like curtains?
TRISTAN: You know what I mean. I did mine up.
RORY: Yeah, I saw that. The naked picture of the Siamese twins is particularly classy.
TRISTAN: You know what these are? (holds up two tickets)
RORY: They look like tickets.
TRISTAN: To PJ Harvey.
RORY: Wow, you have good taste. I'll give you that.
TRISTAN: You're into PJ Harvey, right?
RORY: Yeah, how'd you know?
TRISTAN: Why, I'm all knowing.
RORY: How Godlike of you.
TRISTAN: One of these is for you.
R: Oh, I don't think we should go to a concert together.
RORY: It would seem like a date.
TRISTAN: Well it would seem like a date because it would be a date.
RORY: I can't date you Tristan.
TRISTAN: Well I give you permission.
RORY: And on that humble note.
Madelina, Louise and Paris stop at Paris' locker, where Tristan is standing nearby
MADELINE: Ooh, what are those?
TRISTAN: Oh, PJ Harvey tickets.
LOUISE: Who are you going with?
LOUISE: Rory's going out with you?
TRISTAN: Yes, she is. (Tristan walks away)
MADELINE: Wow, I didn't think she liked him.
LOUISE: Neither did I.
Tristan is waiting against the wall for Rory. As she walks past, he walks next to her.
TRISTAN: So I'm a little tired of this game.
R: What game?
TRISTAN: Are we meeting there or what?
R: What are you talking about?
TRISTAN: The concert's tonight.
R: Well I hope you and the empty seat next to you have a lot of fun.
TRISTAN: I'm started to get a little irritated here.
R: So am I.
TRISTAN: What are you mad about?
R: You've been telling everyone that I'm going to this thing with you.
TRISTAN: Just a couple.
R: You told Paris. Paris and I had just started getting along and now she hates me again.
TRISTAN: Well, the damage is done. You might as well go to PJ Harvey with me.
R: Never never. I am never going anywhere with you ever.
TRISTAN: You know, these tickets cost me a fortune.
R: They cost your daddy a fortune.
TRISTAN: I don't even know anybody else who's even into this stupid guy.
R: PJ Harvey's a woman.
(Tristan grabs Rory's books)
R: What are you doing?
TRISTAN: You'll get them back when you agree to go with me.
R: You're pathetic Tristan. Keep the books. I'm leaving.

>>> Episode: Run Away, Little Boy
Paris, Rory, Madeline and Louise are talking in the hall when they see Tristan standing with two guys.
PARIS: So, I say we meet in the cafeteria. The acoustics are very similar to the Grand Hall, and. . . oh, well look who showed up.
PARIS: Save it.
LOUISE: Well, well, well. Look who's back from suspension.
RORY: Tristan got suspended again?
PARIS: Oh, like you hadn't noticed he'd been gone?
RORY: What did he do?
MADELINE: Took apart Mr. McCaffey's car and put it back together in the science building hallway.
RORY: You're kidding.
LOUISE: Yeah, well he didn't do it by himself. Duncan and Bowman were there too.
MADELINE: Plus the mechanics that they paid to do the actual work.
PARIS: Hey, anyone stupid enough to hand out with Butch Cassidy and the Sun-dunce kid deserves whatever they get.
RORY: How did he fall in with those guys?
MADELINE: The new year started and there they were, all three of them, side by side.
LOUISE: And practically dressing the same.
MADELINE: It's very On the Town.
Rory is sitting with her group in the cafeteria to work on their project, a scene from Romeo and Juliet. Tristan walks in and sits down at their table
TRISTAN: Well, well, the gang's all here.
PARIS: This is a meeting.
TRISTAN: Yeah, sorry I'm late.
PARIS: What do you think you're doing?
TRISTAN: Uh, Professor Anderson forgot to include me when she made up the groups, so she told me to pick one.
PARIS: Fine, you have four other acts to choose from. Take your pick.
TRISTAN: Yeah, well Summer's in act 1, Beth and Jessica are in act 2, Kate's in act 3, and uh, Claire, Kathy, and Mary are in act 4. So this is the only one free of ex-girlfriends.
PARIS: So we're being punished for our good taste?
TRISTAN: Oh, Paris, you hurt me. Do you no longer have any need for me at all?
LOUISE: Yes, we have great need. You can be our Romeo.
RORY: Brad is Romeo!
LOUISE: Put in your other contact Grandma. Tristan is Romeo. Brad can be the second guard on the left.
MADELINE: She's kinda right, Paris. Tristan was born to be Romeo.
PARIS: Hey, I'm the director and I'll decide who's born to be what, and Brad is Romeo.
LOUISE: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
PARIS: What'd you say?
LOUISE: Just perhaps that someone is letting her personal feeling interfere with her leadership.
PARIS: My only feeling is that I don't wanna give the most important part to someone who can't even manage to stay in school.
LOUISE: I'm just gonna say one thing: fifty percent of our final grade.
TRISTAN: Is there gonna be any scratching involved, or is this just a verbal thing?
PARIS: What do you think about this?
RORY: Well, how are you at speaking in front of a lot of people?
BRAD: I tend to throw up.
PARIS: Fine, but I swear, you flake on this and you'll pray you get suspended.
TRISTAN: I gotta run. Are we done here?
PARIS: Rehearsal, tomorrow night.
LOUISE: Good. So now Brad can be Friar Tuck and I can be Juliet.
PARIS: Juliet's supposed to be chaste.
MADELINE: Then . . .
PARIS: And she has more than three lines.
RORY: Oh no.
PARIS: Too late.
RORY: It can't be too late, we haven't done anything yet.
PARIS: You're Juliet. You're the best public speaker here, you've definitely got that waif thing down, and you'll look great dead. Next order of business. I did some location scouting this morning, and I think the courtyard outside. . .
Rory and Lorelai are sitting on a couch and Rory's practicing on how to tell Dean that she had kissed Tristan.
LORELAI: Pretend I'm Dean. If you're going to tell him this, you'd better have down what you're going to say.
RORY: Okay. Dean.
LORELAI: Rory. Sorry, serious now.
RORY: Okay, Dean, remember last year when we had broken up, and we weren't together anymore because we had broken up…
LORELAI: That's good, mention it three times. Keep going.
RORY: And uh, there was this party, and I went, and, um, Tristan was there. And somehow, I'm not really sure how, we ended up in a room together, and we kissed.
LORELAI: You and Tristan?
RORY: Uh huh.
LORELAI: On the hand?
LORELAI: He kissed you or you kissed him?
RORY: Kind of both.
LORELAI: So you kissed him?
RORY: I already told you three times, when we were broken up!
LORELAI: Okay, not a good idea to yell at him right now.
LORELAI: When during the breakup?
RORY: What do you mean?
LORELAI: I mean, how long after we broke up did you kiss Tristan?
RORY: Uhh, just… the night after we broke up.
LORELAI: You mean the night after I told you I loved you?
LORELAI: The next night, after I told you I loved you, you kissed Tristan?
At Chilton, Rory walks up to Tristan and his friends
RORY: Excuse me Tristan, can I talk to you for a second?
TRISTAN: to his friends I'll meet you guys later, okay? they walk away I'm all yours.
RORY: I need to talk to you about something serious.
TRISTAN: Serious, huh? I'm intrigued.
RORY: Dean's coming to rehearsal tonight.
TRISTAN: Wow, are you sure they can spare him? I mean, what if there's a run on baked beans?
RORY: Can you just shut up for five seconds, please? Thank you. Look, as I said, Dean is coming to rehearsal tonight, and I'd like to ask you to promise that you won't say anything to him about what happened.
TRISTAN: What happened?
RORY: At the party?
TRISTAN: At the party?
RORY: Tristan! You and me, at Madeline's party? You had just been kicked to the curb by Summer, and I found you sulking on a piano bench, and I sat down, we talked, and then…we kissed.
TRISTAN: That was you?
RORY: You know what, forget it.
TRISTAN: Hey, Rory.
RORY: There is no point in talking to you. I knew that, yet I tried. Won't happen again.
TRISTAN: You don't want me to tell Dean that we kissed.
RORY: By George, I think he's got it.
TRISTAN: Okay, if that's what you want.
RORY: It is.
TRISTAN: Although, he's gonna find out anyway.
TRISTAN: Well, come on, you know that when we kiss on stage, it's gonna be pretty obvious that it's not the first time. I'm a good actor, but I can't hide that kind of passion.
RORY: Look, things are really good for me and Dean right now, and I don't want anything to mess that up. Especially not something that meant nothing at all to me and I wished had never happened in the first place.
TRISTAN: So things are going good for you too, huh?
RORY: Yeah, they are.
TRISTAN: Good, that's good.
RORY: So what do you think? You just took those out.
TRISTAN: Well, I changed my mind.
RORY: Are you all right?
TRISTAN: Yeah, I think somehow I'll recover from the great romance between you and the Beave.
RORY: A lot of stuff's been going on with you lately, huh?
RORY: Just, you know, the car thing, the suspension thing, a lot of drama.
TRISTAN: Well I get bored easily.
RORY: Just doesn't really seem like you.
TRISTAN: And you know me now?
RORY: I know you don't get suspended for stupid pranks.
TRISTAN: I pulled stuff like that before I knew Duncan and Bowman, all right?
RORY: Well, if you did, you didn't get caught. You're getting caught a lot.
TRISTAN: Your point being?
RORY: Maybe Duncan and Bowman aren't the best people to be hanging out with. They're not as smart as you Tristan, they don't have what you have going for you. They…
TRISTAN: You know, I'm gonna have to bail before we get to the whole hugging part. And ask your boyfriend to remind me when it's coupon day, okay?
Tristan and Rory are rehearsing up front, as Paris, Madeline, Louise, Brad, and Dean watch them. Tristan subtly hints about him and Rory kissing before.
TRISTAN: Here's to my love. Oh true apothecary, thy drugs are quick. Line?
PARIS: Thus with a kiss, I die. How hard is that to remember?
TRISTAN: Thus with a kiss, I die. Right. And then I kiss he, right?
PARIS: Yes. You say 'Thus with a kiss, I die.' Then you kiss her and die. Why are you smiling? You think this is a joke? The performance is tomorrow.
TRISTAN: Wait, tomorrow? Oh my God. I totally missed it the first 47 times you said it.
PARIS: I warned you. I am not going to fail this because of you. I will replace you with Brad in a second.
BRAD: Oh, dear God, no.
RORY: Can we just get through the scene?
PARIS: Fine. But yell line once more and you're out. Start memorizing.
TRISTAN: Oh true apothecary, thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss, I die.
TRISTAN: Well, it's just, with this being our last kiss and all, it makes me think about our first kiss. You know, at the party.
PARIS: Lie down, you're dead.
LOUISE: We all are.
TRISTAN: You remember the kiss. In Act 1 at the Capulet's masked party?
PARIS: What about it?
TRISTAN: Well, I was just trying to think of something that would make this kiss as special as that one.
TRISTAN: I thought she could cry.
PARIS: She's dead. You're dead, lie down.
TRISTAN: Yeah, but that's the beauty of it. No one would expect her to cry.
DEAN: I would.
TRISTAN: You know, funny you should say that…
RORY: I need to take five.
PARIS: You know what? Let's all take five. That way you can all cancel whatever plans you had tonight because we are staying here until we get this right.
After seeing Dean and Rory kiss and Dean leaving, Tristan walks up to Rory.
TRISTAN: Now I noticed you didn't cry when you kissed him. I'm starting to feel a little insecure.
RORY: What is wrong with you?
TRISTAN: Whoa, I think I liked you better comatose.
RORY: I thought you weren't going to say anything.
TRISTAN: Did I say that?
RORY: You make it impossible for anyone to be nice to you. No wonder you had to join our group. Anyone who's actually suffered through the experience of going out with you would absolutely know better.
TRISTAN: Gee, I really wish we could continue your analysis on how pathetic I am. Unfortunately, I have to meet some friends.
PARIS: Where are you going? Where is he going? We're not finished! Hey, I'm the director here! Tristan!
BRAD: Tristan, come back!
Paris is freaking out and talking to Rory because Tristan still hadn't arrived for the play yet.
PARIS: I knew he was going to do this, but no one wanted to listen to me. It was all, let's make Tristan Romeo, he's hot.
RORY: What about Brad?
PARIS: Brad transferred schools. Tristan walks up to them Where have you been? You have to get dressed, we're on in ten minutes.
TRISTAN: Actually, my dad had me pulled out of school. He… Paris walks away … and is she unhappy.
RORY: What do you mean he had you pulled out of school? What happened?
TRISTAN: Nothing. Just ticked the old man off, that's all.
RORY: By doing what? Tristan, come on, tell me.
TRISTAN: I got in some trouble.
RORY: Trouble involving?
TRISTAN: Involving Duncan and Bowman, and Bowman's dad's safe.
RORY: Oh no.
TRISTAN: I mean, Bowman had a key. It was supposed to be no big deal. And the crazy silent alarm kicked in.
RORY: You broke into Bowman's dad's safe?
RORY: Well, okay, you can apologize and you can put back the money and you can explain that, I don't know, you were going through something.
TRISTAN: I was, I was going through his safe.
RORY: Why would you do this?
TRISTAN: I don't know. I guess that's something I can ponder at military school.
RORY: Military school?
TRISTAN: The police are letting our parents handle it, and in my case that means military school in North Carolina.
RORY: I don't know what to say.
TRISTAN: Well, I imagine you're overwhelmed with the relief in knowing that soon I will be gone.
RORY: I'm so sorry.
TRISTAN: Well, I'm a big boy. I can handle it.
RORY: There's nothing you can…
Tristan's dad calls him from down the hall
MR. DUGREY: Tristan, come on.
TRISTAN: I gotta go. So, I might kiss you goodbye but, uh, your boyfriend's watching. Take care of yourself, Mary.
(Rory smiles at him.)
Tristan leaves. Paris comes back dressed as Romeo
