In the kitchen, Lorelai asks what's going on. "I saw her kissing a man!" Emily celebrates. She tells Lorelai what she saw. Lorelai asks if he was hot. "Excuse me?" Emily asks. Lorelai says she doesn't know what else to say when she hears her grandmother was kissing someone. Emily says she couldn't see him around Gran's sucking face. She says that Gran didn't see her. Emily hid in the bushes until he left. Lorelai is happy to have two really good visuals in her head. Emily says this is wonderful because now she has something on Gran after all these years. She now has the upper hand and that woman will go down. Lorelai tells Emily she can't use this against Gran. Emily says she can, and that she earned it. Lorelai says she knows Gran gives Emily a hard time, but that she must have been keeping this private for a reason. Emily says that Gran is probably embarrassed: "She should be. He was dressed like a bookie." Lorelai tells Emily she has to be the better person here. Emily says she doesn't. Lorelai can't believe Emily is going to humiliate Gran in front of her friends and family. Emily says that this isn't fair. Lorelai says that Gran will be back in her own house soon, and Emily just has to hang on until then. Emily says they should go back in and get the evening over with.
Why is one of the old biddies wearing a clown neck ruffle? They're grilling Richard for getting home so late. He says that's one of the pitfalls of staring your own business. Gran says that if Emily could serve her meals on time, Richard would have more of a reason to come home early. "I saw her kissing a man in a track suit!" Emily shouts. One by one the room gives a shocked, heart-stopping reaction. The clown lady almost chokes on her tongue.
Kirk wraps up the hockey game. Stars Hollow lost 5-1. As the crowd empties out, Kirk gives the hopeful wish that in another forty years, Stars Hollow might have another shot at victory. He then realizes that he'll be very old then, and most of the people in the room will be dead: "Taylor, you'll be dead. Babette. Miss Patty."
Rory tells Lane that she can't run home with her because of the cheese in her stomach. Lane leaves so that Rory can have a moment alone with Dean, who doesn't seem to have his girlfriend around very often. Lindsay and Jess are perhaps cut from the same cloth. Rory stammers quite a bit, unable to figure out what you say to someone after they lose a big game. This raises an interesting point. Dean obviously plays sports, and I'm sure he plays basketball. How come Rory's never had to go to one of his games and deal with girls swooning all over him? Rory says she liked all the eating and Kirk's babbling. Dean says she could probably get rid of the sports part of it and still have a great time. They get all weird when Rory brings up Lindsay, and Dean apologizes for not having told Rory about her sooner. Rory says she's a great girl: "She's cute and smart and really nice." CuteDean says he knows. Rory turns his girlfriend into a story about herself. Rory pats his shoulder and tells him he did a good job. Dean asks how Jess is. Rory stammers that he's good, but this kind of thing isn't his thing. Dean says he's got to go change and then he's going out with Lindsay. He leaves.
