* GibberishOfLove: Dean introduces himself, and Rory doesn't quite know how to respond.
-->'''Rory:''' It's my mother's name too. She named me after herself. She was lying in the hospital thinking about how men name boys after themselves all the time, you know, so why couldn't women. She says her feminism just kind of took over. Though personally I think a lot of Demerol also went into that decision. I never talk this much.
