Later, at dinner, everyone compliments the lamb, specially flown in from New Zealand, while Lorelai sulks, Wolf Girl looking over her shoulder. Emily says that she and Richard would like to throw the newlyweds a wedding party. Lorelai tries desperately to decline: "Why don't you give us an anniversary party? Like a tenth. What is ten? Bronze, sandstone, particle board?" Rory: "Actually, it's tin." Lorelai shoots her a look, continuing to protest. She says that, after their wedding, she and Chris went out to a beautiful meal, complete with a cheese plate. "'A cheese plate'?" Emily deadpans. "Since when is a hunk of fermented milk a suitable means for celebrating a marriage?" Hee. Actually, as all married people know, there are times when nothing would be more appropriate. Marriage: sometimes it stinks, but if you've picked the right one, it's tasty anyway. Emily appeals to the product of the union, asking Rory whether she agrees that a party would be a wonderful idea. "Well," says Rory, crossing her arms, "yes, actually. I think it would be nice." Christopher agrees. Lorelai has no choice but to bend under the pressure. Emily is pleased. She says that she'll need Lorelai's invite list right away in order to book the Harbor Club. Lorelai says that she can give it to her right now: "It's me, Chris, Rory, Logan, if Rory wants him there, Sookie, Jackson, and Michel." Emily protests that it's Lorelai's "day," and that she should invite more people than that: "Why don't you invite some of your charming Stars Hollow friends?" Lorelai demurs, brushing this off and shooting an accusatory look at Rory.
