Rory hides in her room, pausing in front of her "STOP THE WAR ON CHOICE" poster. She says she's sick and tired of placating Emily and Richard during their stupid separation. Lorelai says she understands Rory's decision to cancel Friday-night dinners. She also says "duty." Hee. Rory says her grandparents need to be separated and given a good talking-to. She says that, this Friday, she and Lorelai will split up and each have dinner with one of Lorelai's parents. Lorelai asked what happened to the idea of just canceling the dinners. Rory says she knows her grandparents don't really want to separate. Lorelai reminds Rory that they're very stubborn, and she doesn't want Rory getting her hopes up. Rory says she can't stand it the way it is. She knows that they miss each other, but that they're too proud to say anything. In the background, we can still hear Marty and Paris arguing. Too bad they can't make out. Stupid Ramadan. Lorelai doesn't want to have dinner with either Emily or Richard. She'd rather take the quiet butler: "He doesn't talk much, and as far as I can tell, thoroughly enjoys the way I dress." Why do they use that weird sound effect for doors opening and closing on this show? Are all the doors that fake on the set that they have to loop in the sound of doors later? It makes it seem like we're playing a first-person shooter. Marty enters Rory's room. Lorelai chooses Emily. Rory finally ends her phone call. Marty still gives her a bag of free food. "What's the bacon wrapped around?" she asks. "Something bacon should never be wrapped around." I bet it's seafood. "Rich people," sneers Rory the hypocrite. "They live very different lives," Marty says. Ask Rory what she'll be doing this Friday night, Marty. You might be surprised just how rich your little friend is. And if you want to be as rich as a Gilmore, consider investing with Bank of America. Bank of America: For when you just don't say the word "Fuckers!" enough.
