Emily's. Emily tells the girls that they smell strongly of coffee. Richard's in Manhattan, so it's just the three of them tonight. Quick Times Square joke that I think expired three years ago. Emily wonders why Digger wouldn't go on this evening business trip instead, since he took the whole morning off that day. Lorelai immediately defends Digger. Emily says she finds Digger so irritating, with his brown-nosing. Lorelai says that Emily's a formidable opponent. Emily admits she can't warm up to Digger. Lorelai tells her to try. Emily says she does try. But every time she sees him "a new facet of his 'Jasonness' comes out." Then Emily snarks, "You two would be perfect for each other." And with this, Emily cracks up. And then can't stop cracking up. Because the very idea of Lorelai and Digger together is way too much for Emily. She laughs and laughs and laughs while Rory looks uncomfortable and Lorelai gets defensive and for some reason doesn't use this moment to be all, "Mom, I'm dating him. Get used to it! I love him!" like she normally would. Instead, she gets quiet and mildly insulted at her mother's cackling. Rory asks Emily why it's so funny. Emily says it'd be "so ludicrous." Holy shit. I just had to find out how to spell that word because it's been replaced in my immediate recall with "Ludacris." That's the saddest thing ever.
