Emily's. Rory is cold toward her grandmother. Emily throws her arms around Rory and tells her how much they missed her. Rory hands her coat to Eliza, the current maid. Emily calls Rory's outfit "interesting." It's a very pretty dress underneath a strange, sparkly bolero jacket. Rory explains that it's laundry day. Emily: "'Laundry day.' Everything young people do sounds like fun." Totally. Try this one on, Emily: keg stand.
In the living room, Emily tells Rory how she and Richard have so much to tell her, but that the pictures will have to wait until next week when they finally figure out how to work their digital camera. Emily tries to get Rory to discuss Athens with her -- some archeological museum that made Emily think of Rory the entire time she was there. When Richard runs down the stairs, Rory completely changes her mood. She hugs Richard, gushes over him, asks him questions. She's so happy to see this guy, confident that he has nothing to do with the woman he's been married to for such a long time. Emily isn't pleased with the way Rory's acting. Richard hands Rory a gift -- it's Leaves of Grass in Greek, over a hundred years old. Rory thanks Richard and only after he insists does she give a curt "Thank you, Gramma." Dinner's ready, so Emily tells Rory to look at her gift later. As Richard and Rory head to the dining room, deep in a conversation about Greece, Emily stares, open-mouthed, scheming.
