They pass in front of Miss Patty's. "I'm feeling pretty good about this decision," she says. CuteDean says he's glad to hear it. Rory notices that Miss Patty forgot to lock the door to the studio. CuteDean says he's never seen inside the studio before. Rory looks at him.
Inside the studio, Rory shows CuteDean all of the pictures of Miss Patty on the walls. Rory makes a joke about Miss Patty and then drops her bag. "I'll get it," CuteDean instantly says, and picks up her bag. He remarks on how heavy the bag is and asks what she has in there. "I don't know. A lipstick. Five-dollar bill. Gum. Hairspray. A book." CuteDean: "You brought a book to the dance?" He asks if she thought there'd be a lot of down time. She says she just brings a book everywhere she goes. It's habit. The writers of this show have been reading my high-school diaries, I swear to God. He asks what she's reading. The Portable Dorothy Parker. ["I own that very book." -- Wing Chun] He reads a poem and they settle down into a beanbag. He has his arm around her. "Thank you for tonight," she says. "It was perfect." "You're welcome," he says, and kisses her. They go back to the book.
Dark fade to signify time passing, and we do an overhead shot of Rory and CuteDean, now asleep on the beanbag. Their heads are on each other's shoulders. Wouldn't it be cold in that studio? Oh, whatever. I don't care.
Morning. Miss Patty opens the studio to let her class in. The class consists of a group of older ladies who immediately find Rory (calling her "Lorelai's girl") and CuteDean ("the boy from the market") and call Miss Patty over. Rory wakes up in confusion and quickly realizes where she is. She wakes up CuteDean. He asks what time it is. It's 5:30. "Oh, my God! We fell asleep!" Rory moans. CuteDean tells her to calm down and that he'll explain it to Lorelai. He hands her all her things. "I have to go!" Rory shouts and runs through the crowd of women. CuteDean runs after her, telling her to calm down and that everything will be okay.
Outside, Rory is in a full run. ["Barefoot in the snow, no less." -- Wing Chun] CuteDean says he'll go with her and explain everything. She says he can't come with her. Doesn't he have parents that will want to know what's going on, too? ["They're from Chicago so they're probably just glad he's not fixing mayoral elections or grinding people up into sausages." -- Wing Chun] She says he can't be anywhere near her house right now. He says it's not their fault. She says she knows, but that she has to go home. He stops her from running and begs her to let him come with her. She tells him that he can't, breaks away, and runs down the street.
