So Candace Bergen has been reduced to only playing roles where she's a mom everyone hates showing up late in the film for the wedding? Just checking.
I guess they planned Fran's funeral quickly, because now it's Sunday morning, and Lorelai and Rory are walking to the funeral. Rory has chosen a red coat on this somber day. Lorelai tells Rory that Fran was the first person she met in Stars Hollow. She's the woman who pointed Lorelai to the Inn. Rory isn't really listening to Lorelai carry on and on about how much Fran loved to give baby Rory cookies. Wouldn't Rory have been a newborn on the day they moved to Stars Hollow? Anyway, Rory's looking over at Luke's diner, watching Jess work behind the counter. Rory says she'll meet Lorelai at the church. Lorelai doesn't really want Rory to leave her for a second. Rory lies that she's stopping over at Doose's. Lorelai says she'll come, too. Luckily, Miss Patty is crying on a bench. Now that Fran has died, Miss Patty says they're all going to start dying now. Lorelai says she'll help Miss Patty to the funeral. Rory leaves to deal with her own life, since both Gilmores can't be thinking of others at the same time, or they might not be as important as they think they are. Miss Patty says that, at times like these, you realize what is truly important in your life. "I'm so glad I had all that sex!" she blubbers.
