There's more popping and giggling in the other room as Sherri gives this huge speech to Lorelai, rubbing it in and digging it in that she's got Christopher and Lorelai doesn't. It has to be intentional, since it's so over-sweet and poorly acted. "I'm glad you're here. Christopher would be glad, too. I have to tell you, he has been so amazing the past few months. He's so involved with the baby. He talks to it every night. He sings, too. He has a terrible voice, but it's sweet. And he's so protective. If he was here right now, he'd insist that I sit down. I keep kidding him that one of these days he's gonna come home with one of those sofas with the pole and four men to carry me around anywhere." There's more popping as Rory tries to eat cake and Lorelai complains about the noise. Sherri's not done. "You know, when I first found out I was pregnant, I wasn't quite sure how Christopher would handle it, but I just never expected it would be like this. He's been unbelievable. I wanted to thank you. It's all because of you." I'm cutting here, because Sherri has the tendency to say the word "Yeah," before each of her lines. She tells Lorelai that she had a "rocky stretch" with Christopher, where she thought he was out the door. Um, he was, wasn't he? And in the door of Lorelai? Sherri says she wasn't sure if she was going to tell Christopher about the baby, and either go it alone or not go through with it at all. She says it was just like when Lorelai was pregnant with Rory. So she told him the weekend he was in Stars Hollow for a wedding: "Well, I don't know what happened, or what you said, but whatever it was, it worked. He came back a changed man. All of a sudden he was so attentive and devoted and so willing to make it work. He said that he missed out before and he didn't want to miss it again. And I just credit a good portion of that to you." More popping. Lorelai excuses herself to the bathroom. Rory notices her mom's pouty stomp.
