At the very quiet Friday dinner, Rory tries to get Lorelai to engage someone in a conversation. Lorelai asks Richard what their travel plans are for this Christmas. Last year they went to the Bahamas. Rory and Lorelai banter about the correct term for someone from the Bahamas. Emily says they don't have any plans this year. "Why not?" Rory asks. Emily makes a head motion toward Richard. Rory understands and quickly says that staying home for the holidays can be very nice. She says you can do fun things you normally don't do. Lorelai suggests they pull out the Slip 'N Slide. "We'll see," Richard answers. Emily agrees. Richard excuses himself from the table to make some calls, and asks Lorelai to say goodbye before she leaves. After Richard's left the room, Lorelai asks Emily how much longer this "awfulness" of work is going to loom over Richard. Emily says that he's so sensitive these days. Lorelai remembers another time when Richard was sensitive. He had gained weight and bought a new suit to cover the weight, but he still looked fat, and then she told him he looked fat, so it wasn't so much that he was being sensitive, but that she was being rude. Moving on.
