Josh reenters the wake, and Donna immediately approaches him and warns him about some job seeker who is hunting for him. Donna also tells him that Jed left the wake a while ago, but that he has invited some people to come to the Residence later for a more private gathering. And then Josh asks Donna, "Do you still have a key to my apartment?" She points out that she's had a key for six years, unless he's changed the lock. He tries in vain for some semblance of smoothness and tells her, "You should come over later." Donna tells him, "That's sweet, but I can't." Josh points out that she's homeless, since "the twitchy chick from Treasury" is still in her apartment, but she tells him that she already made plans to bunk with C.J. for the night. Josh thinks that Donna should just uninvite herself, but Donna (like C.J.) is concerned about what kind of story she would tell to explain her change of plans. Josh is wounded that Donna didn't ask him if she could stay at his place, and she sensibly tells him, "I didn't know if we were at that point." Because it's been about four days since they first had sex. She also points out that she just assumed Josh's intimacy issues were so enormous that he would have trouble accepting her into his personal space. He keeps pressing her, and she asks him, "Are you really gonna try to convince me that I'm the one who finds this all awkward and hard to navigate?" Hee. Josh folds in the face of her reality-based reasoning. She thanks him for the offer, repeating again, "It's sweet." And then she walks away. Donna has discovered some kind of non-misogynistic version of The Rules. She seems totally in charge of herself and is clearly leaving Josh panting for more.
