Back pain be dammed, Emily is shaking Lorelai awake. She says that Rory isn't home. She fell asleep and it's 5:30 and Rory's not home. Lorelai gets a bit teary and starts calling Rory's name as she walks through the house. Emily keeps harping that Rory isn't there. Emily tells Lorelai to call the police. Lorelai tells her to stop yelling at her and that she's looking for the phone. Emily starts harping about the condition of the house, and that if things were cleaner she wouldn't lose the phone. Lorelai tells Emily to stop yelling. "Rory is missing!" Emily shouts. Lorelai says she knows that, but that yelling isn't helping. The phone starts ringing. Lorelai finds it and answers. It's Miss Patty, telling her that Rory is on the way home. Lorelai thanks her and hangs up. Emily starts asking for information. Lorelai tells her that Miss Patty found Rory and CuteDean asleep there. "What condition were they in?" Emily asks. Lorelai says that Miss Patty didn't say but that they shouldn't get concerned until they find out what happened. Emily says they know what happened, since Rory and CuteDean were out all night. Lorelai tells Emily that Rory's a good kid and that nothing happened. Emily says she won't stand by and watch Lorelai let Rory ruin her life. "Back off," Lorelai says. Emily starts talking about Rory and CuteDean, but Lorelai says she doesn't want to get into this with her. Emily says that Rory is going to get pregnant. Lorelai says she isn't. "She's going to ruin everything just like you ruined everything," Emily intones. "No, she's not!" Lorelai starts yelling. She says that Rory's a good kid and not like her, and that she's not going to do that. "What kind of mother are you to allow this to happen to her?" Emily asks. "Oh, I don't know, Mom. What kind of mother were you?" ["That line chilled me, I don't mind saying." -- Wing Chun] Emily says she's going to lose Rory just like Emily lost Lorelai. Lorelai says she's not going to lose Rory, and that even if she hadn't gotten pregnant Emily still would have lost Lorelai: "You suffocated me in that house. I had no life. I had no air. You strangled me. I do not strangle Rory." Emily says she's tired of hearing how horrible a mother she was. She put Lorelai in good schools. She gave her the best of everything and made sure she had the finest opportunities. She says if she was so controlling, how come she couldn't control Lorelai from getting pregnant and throwing her life away? "Get out!" Lorelai shouts. She says she won't have Emily coming into her house telling her that she threw her life away. "This is a life!" she says.
