Emily is in her element, telling people in uniforms what to do. She's asking the staff to keep the chairs a certain distance apart. If this episode feels familiar to you, it should. As Emily makes a fat joke, Rory shows up in her pretty dress. Emily yells at one of the cater waiters to look at Rory. She makes the man tell Rory she's beautiful. Rory soaks in the compliments. Richard is worried that the bartenders aren't using proper martini glasses, but stops to compliment how lovely his granddaughter looks tonight. Emily says that her hairdresser is upstairs in her bedroom, and if Rory went up there, she could get her hair done, "just for kicks." Richard says he's got downstairs under control, so Emily grabs Rory's hand and skips upstairs.
Lane comes home to find a very upset mfTL, who can't stop thinking about the hellhounds who will feast on his innards. MfTL says that MamaLane sees everything and knows everything, and that it's not cool, nor rock-and-roll. He says he's not that guy, and that he doesn't "do" parents, and that nobody ever takes him home to meet the parentals for a reason. He says he's a back seat, "get in the closet," jump out the window kind of guy. Lane is confused at first, but figures out that Lane 2.0 ratted on her. Lane apologizes profusely and promises that it'll never happen again: "I will take care of the hellhounds, too." MfTL leaves to go walk by a church.
