Rory asks Jess if there's been any word on his car. Jess is all, "Nothing." Okay. Jess would totally have gotten another car by now. What, did he just quit Wal-Mart and start going to school? I'm sure he didn't. How's he skipping school these days? And how many cars is this kid going to go through? And why wouldn't Luke give him the car back by now? Where's he hiding it? Did Jess go to the cops eventually? So many questions! No real answers! Also, last week when Rory was teasing Jess for looking up how far away Yale was from Stars Hollow -- that's the nicest they've ever written Jess. He was reluctantly sweet and even a tiny bit romantic. But now he's back to just being shitty to her once again: "Say goodbye, it's gone. Whatever." So, I guess Jess doesn't care about his car being gone. It's sort of how I feel about Jess on this show now, since his days are so numbered. It's not really worth dissecting everything that's wrong about his character, is it? ["If you won't do it, I can pick up the slack." -- Wing Chun] Anyway, Rory says she likes that Jess is getting to know Dave. (I guess watching someone play guitar can bring you closer.) She says it'll make the four of them going to Prom together even better. Jess says he almost forgot about Prom. Rory says she knows he's trying to forget about it. Jess says he agreed and he's a man of his word, so he's still taking her to Prom. Rory says that if she only got to go to one more dance in her whole entire life, it'd be the Stars Hollow High Prom with Lane. Boys optional, it seems. Jess says he'll get the tickets this week. Rory offers to pay, but Jess says, "Not a chance." He kisses her. She reminds him that he'll have to wear a tux. "I know it's geeky..." she starts. Jess says that tuxes are also very James Bond. He also plans on stashing a change of clothes in the limo. They need to take a limo to go all the way across the street? They kiss again. Jess pats Rory on her stomach. She leaves to the sound of strummy-strummy la la.
