Eight O’Clock at the Oasis seems to be a pretty minor episode of Gilmore Girls. It just focuses on the fact that Rory and Lorelai get roped into helping their new neighbors. They’re supposed to water his lawn while he’s away. Also ,during this episode Lorelai goes to an auction and meet sa man that she likes. However, she needs her mother’s Emily help in order to figure out who she is and Emily is more than happy to see her with a man finally who is on her same level socially.
However, then the sprinkler breaks and Rory runs through town trying to find someone to help. Jess rushes to her aid which is a little bit uncharacteristic of him because he is always just breaking things around town instead of actually fixing them. However, whenever Rory needs his help he seems to come through. However, at the end of the episode he has it fixed, but Dean is coming to the rescue so he breaks it again so that Dean can save the day.
