Rory thanks Emily and Richard for keeping her. Lorelai asks how much she owes for the cab. Richard tells her not to worry about it. Lorelai thanks them for keeping her safe. Emily says that she's their granddaughter and she's always welcome. Lorelai says she'll see them tomorrow night. "Seven 'o clock," Emily says. "Oh, really?" Lorelai asks. "Is it seven? Cause I wasn't sure." Hee. Emily says goodbye and Lorelai leaves with Rory. Richard sighs and says it looks like it's just the two of them again. "I guess so," Emily says. They walk off with their arms around each other. That sounds like I'm making that up. It really did happen.
In the car, Rory tells Lorelai that she almost let Rosa try to make a homemade Pop-Tart. Lorelai remembers that the one thing forcing her to leave her parents' house was her parents. Rory asks to be let out of the car at Lane's. Lorelai pulls over and tells Rory she'll have a pizza waiting at home. Lorelai watches Rory ring the doorbell, talk to Lane for a few seconds, and then hug her.
Back at home, Lorelai picks up the phone and an address book. Max answers. "Now, starting with the A's," she says. "First up is Richie Andrews. He's either a second cousin on my mother's side or the guy who re-grouted the bathroom. Either way, I think he's going to be thrilled to hear about us." Max laughs and starts to interrupt, but Lorelai continues by saying that she's going to let everyone at the inn know by putting notices in the rooms: "Welcome to the Independence Inn. Max and Lorelai are back together." Now, wasn't the secrecy because Max didn't want to get fired? I'd think he wouldn't want her telling anyone. Max asks whether he may see Lorelai after her dinner the next day. Lorelai says that she doesn't know; she has a lot of phone calls to make. She says she might post it on the internet. Max says goodnight and hangs up. Lorelai, for some reason, calls up Richie, as the episode ends.
Next week is the last episode of the season. I know. That's the saddest news ever.
