Luke's. Jess tells Luke he needs to get more trash cans. Luke likes dumping his trash in Taylor's cans. It's a win-win situation for him. Lorelai walks up. Luke says they're out of food. Lorelai says they aren't eating for a year. Rory amends it to "until tomorrow morning." Jess walks off to dump the trash bag. Luke invites Lorelai in, asking if he saw flames coming from Sookie's place. "Yeah, why?" Lorelai asks. Rory leaves to follow Jess.
Rory immediately attacks Jess with the softest, tongue-less-est, emotionless kiss. Then she says hello. Then she runs away. Now, I don't want you guys to think that I'm advocating teen sex. I didn't have sex until I was in college. But I did like to kiss boys. Kissing was fun. Fun! Best thing ever. I don't understand why Rory can't just kiss someone in a way that makes it seem like she enjoys kissing people. She's like a deer, pulling back and trembling, afraid of kissing, afraid of skin touching, worried that maybe she won't stop kissing someone if she lets herself enjoy it. It used to be cute when she was supposed to be two years younger and just learning how to kiss someone, but now it makes me uncomfortable, as if something bad happened to Rory that keeps her from being affectionate with people. Anyway, it doesn't matter, because this only happened so that this next, totally lame-o scene can take place.
