Mustang Max has made himself at home in the living room with coffee and something to read. Lorelai walks in and sits down. Max is all with the, "So, where were we?" Lorelai says that Lane is going to stay the night because she had a "bad teen day" and needs to "crash somewhere sympathetic." She says that if this wasn't a "major Judy Blume moment" she would have asked Lane to leave. Mustang Max asks where there's a hotel close by. Lorelai says he should just stay the night since everybody else is. She tells him that the couch is comfortable and that it's really bad outside. He says he will stay if it's not a problem. She says it isn't. He asks for a kiss goodnight. Lord, with the lechery. They kiss. Lorelai stands up and feels Mustang Max's hair. He gives her a strange look. Lorelai walks away with the open-mouthed "help me!" face.
Morning. Lorelai is in bed, wearing the Paul Frank monkey thermal top that I have been coveting. ["I have the pyjamas. They rock." -- Wing Chun] She hears the driver arrive with Rory, and gets out of bed. She puts on tennis shoes, grabs a coat and runs to meets Rory at the front door. She blurts out that there's a boy on the couch, but that nothing happened, and he just slept there. Rory walks into the house.
"My English teacher is on my couch!" Rory whispers angrily. Lorelai blames it on the snow: "You know how I get. It's like catnip!" Rory is clearly pissed and walks out of the living room.
