Lorelai and Chris meet Rory and her friends at Parent's week-end at Yale. They also bump into Emily and Richard. Luke picks April up at her swimming practice and meets her kooky swimming coach whom he asks out on a date.
I don't think this is the first time Chris realizes that he is an outsider in Lorelai and Rory's life. He seems to be in denial however and attempts to ingratiate himself by inviting the people at the paper out for lunch. It backfires when a big story breaks and Rory has to rush everybody off to cover it. Why do the writers insist on making Luke such a bumbling athlete. First of all, they made him golf like a fool and then they suggest that he doesn't know how to swim!!! Luke was a star athlete on the track team in High School. He loves baseball and we know that he played on a softball team with Dean. Baseball players know how to swing a club so how is it that Luke swung the club like an idiot when he played golf with Richard in season 5. Luke is obviously very coordinated and enjoys sports. He loves to camp and fish and now they suggest he can't swim because they want him to liaise with the swim coach. It is just so wrong in terms of character and story development.
