Paris runs after Rory through the club, asking her to wait. She asks how she was as a kisser. "Aw, man!" Rory whines. Paris says she's always wanted to know if she's a good kisser, and you can't ask a guy because that's a sign of low self-esteem, which she read is really not sexy. Paris asks if she's too stiff: "Do I need to relax my lips a little? Maybe open my mouth more, make it more inviting?" Rory decides that she needs fresh air. She's stopped by Shellmack, who asks where she's going. "Outside," says Rory. Ah, the chemistry. Shellmack asks if he can come with her: "Maybe your girlfriend wants to come too." Then he grins and says that was one sexy kiss. Whatever. This was totally unnecessary, right here. I don't even buy it, nor do I care. Rory leaves.
Lorelai and Digger are walking back to Lorelai's house. Lorelai is going on about how Michael Caine is in every movie, and needs to learn the power of the word "no." Digger, meanwhile, looks like a crazy person, like he's about to flash someone, or rob someone. All hunched and quiet. Lorelai sighs again, which she keeps doing around Digger, so I don't know why she likes him. She complains that he's making her work too hard tonight. That's what she said! Actually, that is what she said. Digger sighs, too. Lorelai says she wore cute boots tonight and did a good job of walking straight and not yelping, but that if she had known she was going to have to do all the talking too, she wouldn't have worn such uncomfortable footwear. Digger says he did it all wrong, giving her the key that morning. He says that the key was supposed to say something. Lorelai: "So it's a talking key." Digger explains that they're at the point in their relationship where he normally breaks it off and walks away. Lorelai thinks Digger is now trying to break up with her, when he's clearly saying that he doesn't want to break it off and that's freaking him out a little bit. Lorelai's all sighing and panting again, so exasperated at every word Digger says. Digger says he couldn't think of anything about her that bothered him. He says he knew he'd be an idiot if he left her, so he went out and made the key. "The talking key," Lorelai repeats. Digger says that he wanted the key to tell her that this was different and that he wanted her in his life even more than she already is. Lorelai says that while it would have been interesting to hear that from the key, it's more romantic to hear it from Digger. They kiss without tongue. And then, because they're so in love and at the point where they want to spend more time together, Digger leaves without a kiss goodbye.
