Friday night dinner at Emily's. Well, someone knew about Fridays at least. Lorelai is digging through her purse, to-go cup of coffee tucked under her chin, as she enters. The maid goes to take the coffee, but Lorelai helps her so that nobody gets hurt. She chatters on, noting that the coffee was stronger than she thought. When Lorelai learns that Rory's not there yet (she didn't notice that Rory's car wasn't out front?), she takes her coat back, excusing herself back to her car for a few minutes.
Out in the Jeep, Lorelai turns on the radio and busts a move to the Bee Gees ("Shadow Dancing") until Emily knocks on the plastic window. Lorelai unzips, and Emily asks why Lorelai is in her car. Lorelai says she was looking for her lip gloss. Emily asks why she needs the radio on for that. Lorelai thought she should retrace her steps in order to find the gloss, so she turned the radio back on. But "Shadow Dancing" is one of her favorite songs from junior high. "And you forgot to look for your lip gloss," Emily says. "Just for a second," Lorelai smiles. Emily points out that the lip gloss is right next to Lorelai, in the ashtray. Lorelai picks it up. Emily calls it a miracle, and tells Lorelai to come inside. Lorelai starts to ask if she can wait until the song is over, but on Emily's look decides to come in.
Back inside the house, Emily scolds Lorelai for not being able to sit for three minutes without Rory there as a buffer. Lorelai and Emily sit down. "I just found out that Sookie is pregnant," Emily says. Lorelai promises she had nothing to do with it. Emily asks why Lorelai didn't bother to tell her. She says it's unforgivable. Lorelai has a nasty grin on her face when she says that it's not like Sookie and Emily are great friends. Emily correctly points out that she went to Sookie's wedding. "So did Kirk," Lorelai says. Yes, but he was working the wedding. But I bet Kirk knows about Sookie being pregnant, and I bet he's installed a security system already. Emily says that she hasn't sent Sookie a gift yet. "And how does that make me look?" Lorelai says it'd look like Emily hates Sookie, and all childbearing women. I would think that Sookie would want Emily to know -- there's a bitchin' savings bond in it for young Davey. Emily pouts that Lorelai is so intent on keeping her out of her life. Lorelai says that it's Sookie's life, not hers. Emily says a simple phone call would have been sufficient. Lorelai asks how Emily found out. "Why? Are you gonna track down the informant and have him shot?" Emily asks. Lorelai: "Maybe." Someone presses the "Doorbell" track on the sound effects CD. Emily says it doesn't matter how she found out, but she did find out, no thanks to Lorelai. Emily gives a great smile when she realizes it's driving Lorelai crazy not to know how she found out about Sookie. "Does it bother you not knowing?" she asks. "Yes," Lorelai admits. "Me too," Emily smiles.
Rory enters and apologizes for being late. "You'll pay," Lorelai says. Emily asks Rory to sit down and tell her all about Yale. Lorelai says that if she doesn't, then Emily will find out anyway. Rory says that Yale is "interesting" and more free-form than she thought. Emily says Rory's an adult now, and they will treat her like one. Lorelai says that doesn't happen in the Gilmore house. Emily reminds Lorelai that they've switched subjects. She asks Rory if she has any weekend plans. Rory says she's going on a date. The women are so excited, and ask Rory for the particulars. Rory says it's the guy from her English class. Lorelai tries to make Rory whisper with her in a secret club, speaking in a way that shows Emily that Lorelai and Rory have been discussing all of this for days, but Emily keeps asking questions until she finds out that Rory already turned this boy down once, and this date was because Rory initiated it. Emily is so upset. "Rory, you're in Yale. Not Amsterdam. How you conduct yourself socially is as important as how you conduct yourself academically." Rory promises she was very proper about it. Lorelai says that Rory had a nice Tiffany lampshade over her red light. Emily asks about the boy, but Rory says she plans on finding out about his parents and where he's from on the date itself. Lorelai just wants to know what she's going to wear. Lorelai offers to let Rory borrow something, but Emily says that Rory will not go traipsing around in Lorelai's whore swatches. She calls it "One of your Sex and the City ensembles." Lorelai has no idea how Emily knows about Sex and the City. Instead of getting the last joke in, Emily has to settle for scoffing indignantly.
