And how quickly a week passes. Lorelai and Rory are at Emily's dinner. Grampa and Emily are on the speakerphone arguing with someone about prices. Emily says that this is their last chance to go to Martha's Vineyard. Grampa starts lecturing about business transactions as the speakerphone man keeps repeating Grampa's and Emily's names. He says he'll get back to them with a negotiated fee. Emily and Grampa sit down and announce that they just secured a place on Martha's Vineyard. Emily beams, and says they just found out that someone on the property died and the space was available. Grampa says it's a fine piece of property. Emily says it's much better than their usual place. Lorelai says that the both of them are "going directly to Hell." Grampa gives his Munster laugh and says they'll be well-rested. Emily says the two of them should come visit for a weekend. Rory asks if they can go. Lorelai pats Rory on the knee and says that she'll have to find out "how much Valium Auntie Sookie can lend Mommy for the weekend." Heh. Emily moans that they had to rent the place furnished, and that the deceased had dreadful taste. They laugh about how bad his place looks. "Well, he's dead now, so he got his," Lorelai smiles. Emily stops laughing and tells Lorelai she's being morbid. Rory asks for a new subject. "Joan and Melissa Rivers here think I'm being morbid," Lorelai scoffs. Emily asks Rory how her life is going. Rory says nothing's really new -- just school and homework. "Aprons," Lorelai adds. Rory asks her to shut it. Emily pries and pries that she wants to know what this whole apron business is about. Lorelai says that Rory got dressed up in a cute apron the other night. Grampa asks why. Rory gives Lorelai a pleading look. Lorelai says that Rory's decided to give up the Harvard dream and to become a maid just like Lorelai did. Grampa and Emily find this so not funny that they start scolding Lorelai for having such a bad taste in jokes. Emily remarks that her heart stopped at the thought. Lorelai asks Rory to talk about the bird. Rory says that she's supposed to track all of the bird's habits. They start joking about the bird's getting out, and how she's safe now and a better bird for it. "Thank God Luke found her," Rory says. Emily asks if the bird got out at the diner. Lorelai says that she didn't. Emily wants to know why Luke was at the house. Lorelai goes to the bar while Rory tries to change the subject to Grampa's next trip. Emily asks again why Luke was at the house. Lorelai points out that they are out of ice, and excuses herself to the kitchen.
