Back at Luke's Diner, Luke is getting stood up. We pan across all of the cans of paint, and the tarps over the furniture. Luke stands outside looking around one last time, and then gives up. He goes inside and slams the door.
Pan up to Lorelai's balcony, where she and Christopher are making out. They start taking off each other's clothes until they sink to the ground. Fade to commercial.
Pan down to Lorelai's balcony, where she and Christopher are sitting on the ground, putting their clothes back on. Christopher pulls a leaf out of Lorelai's hair and asks if she's "wigged." She says she is. She says this was rather unexpected. He agrees that it was, but that it was also great. He apologizes, but she tells him not to, saying that it was both of their doing. As they go back inside the house, Lorelai says, "My parents have got to seal these windows up, I swear to God."
"So, where were you guys?" Christopher is driving the 2001 Awkward, as Lorelai looks to him before answering Rory's question: "Nowhere." Rory: "Where's nowhere?" Christopher: "Where we were." Rory says, "Ah," and looks at both of them quietly.
Inside the house, Christopher says goodnight to Rory and kisses her cheek. He says good night to Lorelai and she stammers around and eventually pushes him while wishing him a goodnight. Christopher goes into the living room, and Rory starts rubbing some dirt off Lorelai's neck. Lorelai pulls Rory into the kitchen to talk. She asks Rory whether she's okay. Rory says she is. Lorelai says that all of those horrible things that were said were directed at herself, and not at Rory. Rory says that they were directed at Lorelai, for having her. Lorelai says that they were directed at herself for ruining their "big Citizen Kane plans." Rory pouts and asks, "They don't even want to know me, do they?" Lorelai says that's not true -- that they're too proud and angry to see how much they want to know Rory. She tells Rory that it's their loss. Rory excuses herself to bed. Lorelai tells her that there are no regrets for either her or Christopher. She mentions a misspelled tattoo that Christopher might wish were gone, but he doesn't regret Rory. Rory asks where that tattoo might be. Lorelai says that's a story for another night -- the night that Rory decides to go to Mazatlan. Rory kisses Lorelai good night, and goes to bed. Lorelai looks at herself in the mirror, disgusted.
