Rory leaves, and Christopher comments, "She did not get there by herself." Lorelai asks if Christopher's ever met his daughter, because she's capable of getting lots of places by herself. Christopher tries to go and talk to Rory, but Lorelai says that Rory wants to be alone to cool off: "Respect that. I'll talk to her later." Christopher says that the idea of Lorelai talking to Rory makes him feel so much better. Lorelai tells him to leave right now. "This isn't right," he says, following her toward the door. "She needs a father." Lorelai spins around and says, "I know she needs her father. I've been telling her she needs her father. But she feels like her father bailed on her and she's mad and hurt and I can't change that in three minutes." Christopher says he doesn't like this situation. This wasn't what he wanted. After what they had going. Lorelai asks if he even remembers why they're here right now -- what event led them to this moment. Christopher says that has nothing to do with this. Lorelai stops herself from screaming and strangling Christopher by shrieking, "What do you want from me?" Christopher: "I wanna talk!" Lorelai: "About what?" Christopher says he doesn't like how things have turned out. This wasn't what he wanted. "But that's how they are!" Lorelai says. Christopher says a few times that this isn't what he wanted. Lorelai asks if Sherri is still pregnant. "Of course she is," Christopher says. "Are you still with her?" Yes. "Are you going to marry her?" After a pause, Christopher says, "Yes." Lorelai is in tears as she says, "Then honey, we are where we are. Accept it." Christopher says he can't. Lorelai yells, "Don't you understand that I can't talk to you because it hurts? Talking to you really hurts! Standing here right now is killing me, okay? Don't you understand that?" "Christopher?" comes Emily's voice from the entryway. I know this is supposed to be a very solemn moment, but the close-up on Emily is awkward and she's wearing that Sgt. Pepper's outfit. Emily tells him to leave. Lorelai doesn't even look at him as he walks out the door. "You know you need a mask and a horse when you do that," she says to Emily. Emily gives a small smile and then runs off when she realizes something is burning.
