Fanciness. Lorelai wonders where Demi and Ashton are sitting at the charity event. Rory thinks they might be late. Since Emily told her to arrive at 6 sharp and it's 7, and Emily is glaring at them, yeah, I'd say that's a pretty safe assumption. Emily asks what Rory's doing there. She can't believe Lorelai doesn't know a single man she could bring to this thing. "I thought you liked Rory," Lorelai says. "We do like Rory, but we're short of men," Emily says. Lorelai: "Well, so am I." Emily tells Lorelai that it's not her looks that keep men away. Heh. Lorelai pouts. Hee. Rory asks if she should leave. Emily says there's nothing she can do about it now, so they might as well all join the table. As they walk to the table, Lorelai and Rory decide that on a "wigged-out scale" from 1 to 10, Emily is Frances Farmer. Richard asks Rory what she's doing there. "Lorelai couldn't find a man," Emily drones. Emily introduces Lorelai and Rory to Marjorie and Shawna, the personal assistants to Richard and Digger. Emily calls them so dull they're two rolling pins. Digger arrives, late because he was talking in the lobby to some guy named Feriman who drinks a lot. Emily makes Rory move over so Digger and Lorelai can sit together. She tells them to act like they're dating. Emily barks at Shawna and Marjorie to look like they belong there. One of them smiles more brightly. "Oh, yes, that's much better," Emily deadpans. Rory asks who is sitting in the remaining empty chair. Emily says that nobody's there, so they brought one of Richard's coats to put over the seat. They're saying it belongs to Marjorie's husband: he's making the rounds, and then around 8 they'll say he went home feeling ill. Richard asks if everybody understands the story. Lorelai offers to stuff the coat under her dress so that they can say she's pregnant and Digger can pretend to be the doctor. Emily says she might have known Lorelai would turn this into something ridiculous. Rory says she wants to be the doctor. Emily tells Digger and Lorelai to act like they like each other. They hold hands. "Hey, your mom said," Digger says.
