(Jess and Luke arrive in Luke's after they got in a fight at TJ's bachelor party, Jess takes a chair off a table, sits down and waits for Luke to lecture him)
Luke: Hmmm. Tonight I got into a fight wih my nephew at a strip club. A fight. I haven't been in a fight since sixth grade. Vince Williams called me a 'doody head', I took it very personally. But you know, tonight was good. It was a real eye-opener. You are who you are. I can't change that, and I'm gonna stop trying. But if you really hate your mother that much, you shouldn't do it. You shouldn't be here, you shouldn't walk her down the aisle, you shouldn't go to her wedding.
Jess: I don't hate my mother.
(Luke takes another chair off the table and sits down)
Luke: You don't? Then I don't get it, why weren't you coming? Was it because of me? Do you hate me that much?
Jess: I don't hate you. I came here because of you.
Luke: Well then, I'm stumped. You don't hate me, you don't hate your mother, so why weren't you coming? (sees Jess' face) No? Rory? Still? That's ancient history. You haven't seen her in a year.
Jess: I saw her three months ago when I was here. And I told her something.
Luke: What'd you tell her?
Jess: I told her... I told her I loved her.
