Sookie tells Lorelai and Rory that someone cancelled at the last minute (rude), and now she has two extra seats left. She asks Rory if there's anyone else she wants to invite. Rory says she's already got Lane (Jess, please) and Dean (who she wishes was Jess), so she doesn't need another invite, since she has no other friends. Sookie's thinking of offering them to Richard and Emily. What? She's just now getting around to inviting Emily? The woman who helped Sookie plan her wedding for weeks on end, giving her suggestions and discounts and calling Bora Bora? I can't believe she never even thought of inviting Emily earlier than this. What about the lady that owns the Inn? How about her? Sookie says if it weren't for Emily, she never would have settled on the color pink. She wanted yellow, but Emily said no. Ha. Sookie asks Lorelai to ask Emily. Uh, couldn't Sookie ask Emily? You know, with a "thank you" and stuff? Sookie plays the song again, saying it gets happier the second time you hear it. Sookie dances as Rory and Lorelai pout. Finally, the opening credits.
Emily's living room. I guess it's Friday. Lorelai snorts and tells Rory that she just realized "oy" is the funniest word in the entire world. She says you never hear the word "oy" and not smile. She says it's a very funny word. "Oh, dear God," Emily says as she hands Rory a glass of something. Lorelai continues and says that "poodle" is also a very funny word. Emily begs Lorelai to finish her drink. Lorelai doesn't, and says that if you put both words in the same sentence, you'd have a great new catchphrase. "Oy, with the poodles, already," she tries out. Rory forces a giggle. Emily rolls her eyes with the rest of us. Lorelai declares that they have to say their new catchphrase when the situation arises, and that it will knock "Whatchoo talkin' bout, Willis?" right out of first place. Emily asks Lorelai to be quiet. The newest maid tells Emily that dinner is ready. Inga is her name. Emily tells Inga to alert Richard that dinner is ready.
