Lorelai and Rory are in their hotel room. Rory says that most people didn't notice the Emily-Richard thing. Lorelai says that's because Bootsy was performing "Hotel California" with spoons. Who is supposed to love Bootsy as much as Daniel does, exactly? Rory asks why Richard never told them he was retiring. Lorelai says she cannot explain her parents ever. Rory asks which bed she should take. Lorelai tells her to take the bed by the window. Rory pulls back the covers and discovers the ugly baby picture on her pillow. Very funny. ["Glark does that to me with the image of a particularly chubby-faced PC World columnist." -- Wing Chun] Lorelai acts shocked and says the baby is stalking them. Rory and Lorelai get into bed. Rory asks if Lorelai's heard from Christopher recently. Lorelai stalls. Rory says that Christopher's probably busy, but that it's strange that he hasn't checked in yet. Lorelai starts with lying and stalling and eventually confesses that Christopher invited Rory for Christmas, and she's sorry she didn't tell Rory earlier. He was being considerate by asking Lorelai first, but he might actually be inconsiderate. Rory asks why Lorelai didn't tell her sooner. Lorelai says she's got dibs on this time of the year, and now Christopher's put her in the crappy position of losing her daughter on Christmas, resulting in Rory having more fun with Sherri and Christopher. Rory tells Lorelai that she's "wigging" and overreacting with her jealousy of Sherri. Rory says that Lorelai should relax, and that there are ways of working this out. She offers to still call Lorelai "Mom" and to call Sherri "Mommy Sherri." Lorelai doesn't want to be teased, but Rory feels that Lorelai has earned some teasing, what with the withholding of information and all. Rory says she'll split all of the holidays evenly. Labor Day, Memorial Day, Chanukah, Christmas. Lorelai asks her to stop teasing. Rory stops. Lorelai asks if Rory's thinking about going to her dad's, then. Rory says she doesn't know how she feels about it all yet. She says she's going to think about it. She says it was nice that they asked. She reminds Lorelai that they are rooting for Christopher. Lorelai says she knows, and she was being a little possessive. Lorelai says she also wants to know if Sherri is good enough for him, and that there was a bit of altruism in her madness. Rory agrees.
