Lorelai asks Rory and Tom how their backgammon game is going. Tom says that Rory is letting him win, which is very annoying. Lorelai tells Rory that they locked the kitchen crew in with Michel, but that the plan backfired: six of them quit, and now Sookie and Lorelai have to find new employees. She asks Rory to run home and get some CDs in case a guest wants to listen to music in his or her room. Too bad they didn't invite Lane to be a guest, since she's broke and starving in her hovel. She likes CDs. Luke watches Lorelai head over to Digger.
Lorelai hands Digger a plate of food. Digger thanks her and asks her to sit and have dinner with him. He says he wants to fix everything that went wrong between them. Over his shoulder, we can see Luke watching their exchange.
Babette rolls a full house and cheers that she's kicking Luke's ass in Yahtzee. Luke asks whom Lorelai's talking to. Babette gives Luke the earful, explaining that Digger's Lorelai's ex, who was also Richard's partner, blah blah blah conflictcakes. Babette says she thought they broke up, but there he is, so maybe they didn't. "I could ask Patty for you, if you want," she offers. Patty often has information first, since her phone line sometimes picks up other people's conversations: "Something about proximity to the power lines. I tell ya, 'location, location, location!'" Hee.
Lorelai tells Digger she has to get back to work. Digger says he's fine; he has food, Sookie brought him wine, and he's moved on to Gnomes of the West. Lorelai tells him that someone will bring him dessert. Ugh. Someone call Security.
Emily storms in, furious that Lorelai locked her in the bungalow with Richard, so that they didn't get to join other people for dinner. Lorelai says that it's supposed to be romantic -- the honeymoon suite, to spend their evening together. She asks all dramatically, "Why would you want to get away from each other, Mom? Are you and Dad fighting?" Emily tells her to stop it; she knows Lorelai must know, and she's mad that Lorelai intentionally did this. Lorelai asks what she was supposed to do. Emily calls Lorelai cruel and insensitive, and thinks Lorelai should have been respectful of knowing even if she was supposed to pretend she didn't know: "And then you forced your father and me to come here tonight under pretense of family obligation." Lorelai: "Well, hello, that's the Gilmore way." Emily says she won't stay in the cabin anymore. She demands an interior room, and tells Lorelai to bump someone. Lorelai asks what happened between Richard and Emily: "Was it Floyd's lawsuit?" Emily asks for a room. Lorelai says she doesn't have one. "You don't have a room for your mother?" Lorelai says that the room she gave Emily is the room she has for her. Emily calls the room a practical joke. Lorelai says it's a chance for her to do something special with Richard. Emily decides to wait in the lobby, where she runs into Digger. "Do you have a room?" she asks. Lorelai says that he doesn't, and that Digger just showed up there: "Because apparently it's Blake Edwards night at the Dragonfly." Best line of the season. Richard enters. "Emily. Jason." "Richard." Richard asks Lorelai if she's trying to kill them. "Oh, my God!" Lorelai answers. To be fair, though, she was. Richard announces that he's packed their things, and they can leave. "It's been a blast," Lorelai says. Digger asks if he can have their room. Lorelai gives Digger a look of evil and walks away.
