Rory is in the poolhouse. Richard can't find anything to serve this "elegant young lady." That would be because she and her punk-ass friends ate and drank Richard out of house and...pool, just last indeterminate period this show uses as time. Rory explains that she and Lorelai split up duty with Richard and Emily so that they could spend more undivided attention on them. Richard's fridge contains only batteries and Nutella. I do believe that's how I survived my freshman year of college. Dude. There's a fireplace in the poolhouse. That's the coolest thing I've ever seen. Rory asks Richard if he thinks this is his permanent residence. She says that it's fun to shake things up a little, throw some paint on the house, move some furniture, go blond, but then afterward it's best to go back to something that's comfortable. Something he depended on for forty years. Ripping off corporations through insurance scams? Humiliating customer-service people? Publicly degrading his daughter? Seeing Pennilyn Lott on the side? Oh. She means Emily. "You're a lovely girl" is Richard's only answer. "I have good genes," says Rory. Lorelai has good jeans. Just as important. I don't know how or why Richard has a frozen pizza in his freezer, but he does. Richard worries that the pizza has been in the freezer since Lorelai's tenth birthday party. Rory does love it when a man scrapes together whatever he can find to feed her. Maybe if Rory learned how to cook something, this wouldn't keep happening to her. Richard takes the pizza out of the box but doesn't remove the wrapper. Don't eat the pizza, y'all.
