Walking up to Emily's, Lorelai asks Rory who would name a kid "Lemon." "Someone really into citrus," Rory answers. She says she can't believe the one day she sat at a table, she ended up meeting a secret society. Lorelai says it's like waking up and finding you're the only member in your family who can't pull her face off. Rory says it's exactly like that. A new maid answers the door and tells Lorelai and Rory to head out to the "patio" for the "barbecue." Lorelai and Rory are appropriately suspicious and shocked. They walk out back and find that there's really a barbecue, but it's catered by some stranger. They grab corn on the cob and sit on a bench to eat it. Emily walks out and asks whether this is a refugee camp. She tells the girls to come inside and eat. Lorelai says that you barbecue to eat outside. Emily says that human beings don't eat outside; animals do. She says that Lorelai can either come inside and eat or find a gazelle to hunt down and cook if she wants to eat outside. Emily walks in. Lorelai confers with Rory on their odds of finding a gazelle in this part of Hartford, and they ultimately agree to go inside.
Dining room. Rory and Lorelai haven't even sat down before Emily tells Lorelai that she's "extremely disappointed" in her. Lorelai tells Emily to hold on, takes off her coat, sits down, picks up her fork, and tells Emily to continue. Emily had lunch with Bitty Charleston, my favorite invisible cast member, and was filled in on the goings-on of Lorelai and Rory at Chilton. She says she's disappointed that Lorelai hasn't been fulfilling her Chilton parental duties. She tells Lorelai that she's supposed to be an example for Rory, and that if Rory's not involved at school, then she learned it by watching Lorelai. Lorelai and Rory cutely fight over Emily across the table. Lorelai tells Emily to stop and says she already joined a group: the Booster club. Emily is pleased, and says that the matching sweatshirts the Boosters wear are just darling. Rory and Lorelai share a look.
