Lorelai's at home, and all you MILF fans are gonna get even creepier when you see she's wearing a pair of cat-eye glasses. Lorelai runs as fast as the strummy-strummy-la-la music into the kitchen, grabbing a napkin and a plate. She hustles out of the kitchen, peeking into her bag of food. She takes the phone off the hook and jams it under her chin, making her way over to the couch. She sits down, sipping her drink. The phone rings. Lorelai answers: "They burnt my fries, forgot to give me an extra side of barbecue sauce, the Jeep is making that crunchy sound again, and I have to spend my evening making elf ears for Aaron Thompson's Lord of the Rings party." Rory, who's eating her own Tupperware meal, says, "Grandma broke into my dorm and redid the entire common room in $25,000 worth of furniture and stereo equipment." Lorelai: "You win." Rory says she feels like she's at Uday's house. Lorelai asks what the roommates thought of their new room. Rory says that Tana still doesn't know she's at Yale, Paris saw it and said nothing (prompting Lorelai to moan that Paris must be planning something for later), and Janet's out jogging. Rory hopes that Janet is pleased, because she's in shape and can kick Rory's butt. Lorelai says that Rory should put something on television for Janet when she gets home -- something soothing to runners, that goes in a circle over and over again. Rory says that the redecoration is a total invasion of privacy, and that some of the furniture Emily got rid of might have belonged to someone. Janet comes home at this point, sweaty and still working out, and waves at Rory, who waves back. As Lorelai goes off on her Emily Rant of the Week, Janet pulls out an exercise ball and proceeds to do push-ups in front of Rory, who's still eating chips. Lorelai actually does an "I told you so" here, and Rory tells her not to gloat. Lorelai tells Rory to do almost exactly what she's already done -- to tell Emily she appreciates the gesture, and that the furniture is lovely, but that because it's a dorm room, Rory has her roommates to worry about, and there's a chance this nice stuff could be stolen. Rory says that sounds good. Lorelai tells her then how Emily will call her ungrateful and small-minded. Rory pouts and says she can keep the furniture. Lorelai tells her to say something if she feels strongly, but that she should be prepared, and that Emily did all of this to Lorelai without the furniture.
