Digger ruins his very nice pans by using a pair of metal tongs to scrape and flip potato pancakes. Lorelai enters the kitchen, asking why he didn't wake her. Digger says he tried, but that she bit him. He shows her the bite. Lorelai: "Cool!" She's impressed that he made French toast, but flabbergasted that he also went running, read the paper, and did some laundry before slaughtering a pig to make the bacon for her breakfast. Why does Digger have a giant tomato framed on his wall? That's weird. He's weird. Do you think they still sleep in separate rooms? Lorelai says she has to go pick something up, so she makes breakfast in a bag: French toast in a baggie with bacon and syrup. She kisses Digger goodbye and says that they'll plan their weekend later, when she calls. Digger hands Lorelai a key. "Key!" she says, like a child on Sesame Street. Digger says it's a key to the apartment in case she needs to come over when he's not there or if she has a lot of groceries in her hand and doesn't want to wait for him to answer the door. Lorelai seems so confused by the gesture that Digger begins to take it back, saying that Lorelai doesn't have to carry the key around if she's already got her keychain the way she likes it. Lorelai pouts and offers to give it back. He says he can go either way, if she wants it or not. Lorelai is now breathless, asking what he wants. Digger wants her to do what she wants to do. Lorelai says she'll take the key. They share a very awkward goodbye.
Beach. Rory, Paris, and Janet walk to their tent, which Paris tipped for. How come they didn't bring Tana? Glenn compliments Janet's suit. She couldn't care less. Paris and Rory are dressed like they're about to throw down some serious pinochle while the kids go out with their floaties. Glenn runs off for a hot dog. Rory says she never thought of the beach as loud before. Paris says it's because there's a group of Huns re-enacting Top Gun behind them at the volleyball net. On cue, the volleyball rolls over to them. A guy asks them to throw it back. "No!" Paris screams. Volleyball guy walks over. "I need my ball!" he says. Paris tells him he needs a couple of them. Janet gives him the ball. "Ignore her," Janet says of Paris. "She likes it." Paris tells Rory not to put her towel on the sand. Rory starts to protest, but then the hotel crew arrive with a table and chair set. Paris tips them, orders a fruit plate for an hour from now, and tells them to keep the iced tea coming. "It's like Rory went on Spring Break with Emily," Stee notes. Janet leaves to do laps in the ocean. Paris tells her that ten minutes in the sun without sunscreen can cause irreparable damage. Janet tells Paris that constant shoulder tension causes a hunchback. It does? Shit. Paris hands Rory the sunscreen, calling her "Casper." Louisa and Fraulein arrive on the back of a Beach Patrol truck. Lordy, these girls are hot. Louisa tells Rory that they came for Tulane's Spring Break, and that they haven't really left yet. They've been here a month now. They sit at the table to catch up. Paris applies more sunscreen. Louisa says it took a couple of weeks, but now they own this town. They break down the rules for Rory. Louisa's sounding like Lindsay Lohan these days. Her voice is very throaty. Anyway, she says that it's important to find out which club is hot that night, because that changes. They say it's good to sleep until late afternoon in order to keep up their stamina all night. "Were we really friends at one point?" Paris asks. Fraulein says that some places do card, but that they can get around it with flirting. They tell Rory and Paris how they get everything for free: by kissing each other. Paris says she might pants Rory later for an Altoid. Louisa and Fraulein leave with the Beach Patrol for their nap, but they promise to meet up later tonight. Rory and Paris go back to their books.
