Anyhoo, Rory says that this is important to Emily, and that if it's that important to her, she might as well do it. Lorelai says that these kinds of parties say, "Hi! I'm Rory. I'm of good breeding and of marriageable age and I will now parade around in front of young men of similarly good breeding and marriageable age so they can all take a good long look at me." She says it's no different than animals at the county fair getting judged, except "sheep don't wear hoop skirts." Rory says that Lorelai doesn't have to be a part of it. Lorelai says she'll do it if Rory wants her to, but that it's weird because it's all the stuff she ran away from as a kid, and she always expected Rory to run away from it all, too. Rory says, "Well, I would, but I heard debutantes don't run. Something about the heels." They sit down at the table as Lorelai starts to plan it all out. She says that Rory will need a dowry, so she hands Rory a cow creamer. "Shoes, hose, gloves. Some mice, a dog, a pumpkin." Rory pouts and says that her father is supposed to present her at the ceremony. She says it's no big deal: "I can get somebody else to do it. Grampa, probably. Or Taylor. Or the cable guy." Oh, please let it be Taylor. Lorelai grabs the phone to call Christopher. Lorelai calls and hears that the number has been changed. She writes down the new number. Rory says that Christopher won't come. Lorelai says that Rory can't know unless she asks, and that the cable guy isn't going anywhere. Lorelai calls and Christopher answers the phone.
