Emily's. I guess it's Friday. Just go with it. Yay! Richard's back! Emily asks everyone if they like the pork. Rory does. Emily isn't sure. Richard thinks it's fine. Emily isn't sure. Lorelai thinks it's really good. Emily still isn't sure. Richard explains that pork is bred leaner these days, which gives it a different taste: "Less fat equals less flavor." Riveting! Of all the words in all the orders you could have given Richard for his return, and you give him an explanation of the change in pork taste over the years? Come on. Emily finally announces that they're changing the subject, so Rory starts teasing Lorelai for having such a good time at the auction. Emily asks Lorelai if she saw anything she liked. "Yeah, Mom," Rory smiles. "Anything look good to you there?" Lorelai chats about endtables. Emily says she even bought a few pieces for herself. Richard complains about having chairs they aren't allowed to sit in beside footstools you can't put your feet on. He's very proud of the fact that he's provided Emily with a house full of useless objects: "I'm never happier than when we're standing in the corner staring at our furniture." Emily tells him to eat his pork. Rory leads the conversation back to Paddle 17. After some mild panting, Lorelai compliments Emily on the group of people that attended the function. She says she was surprised at how many "younger" people were there. She brings up Paddle 17, saying she didn't get his name but that he's nice, wore a nice suit, and liked Merlot. "Are you talking about Payton Sanders?" Emily asks. He of the chicken lineage? Lorelai says it's possible. Emily checks her records (which I guess were right in her pocket or sitting on a table just out of reach) and confirms that Paddle 17 was Payton Sanders. Richard gives Lorelai a sneaky look as Lorelai tries to be all, "Well, that's cool, baby. I mean, you know how it is, rockin' and rollin' and whatnot." Emily asks Lorelai why she's so interested in Payton Sanders. Lorelai finally confesses that they kind of "hit it off." Do you really think so, since you're having to go through so much work over these past one to four days when Payton could have easily asked the organizer of the auction, Lorelai's mother, for Lorelai's information? Lorelai asks for Payton's phone number, and then asks for the flavorless pork. Emily is filled with glee that Lorelai wants Payton's number: "Well, well, well. Richard, Lorelai is asking me for a man's number." Richard plays along with the smug glee. Emily says she doesn't have Payton's number, but that she can get it if Lorelai wants it. Lorelai says it's up to Emily. Emily says it can't be up to her, since she's not the one who wants the number in the first place. Do we all get it? Great, because I'm going to move on long before this scene does. Lorelai asks for the number, thanks Emily, and threatens Rory. We end the scene with Rory just smiling. Okay.
