Emily is on the phone again, trying to reach an old florist Gran requested. Lorelai walks to the kitchen, Emily following. Lorelai distractedly tells Emily that Richard is going to eat the soup. Emily tells her to take an apple, and some bread, too. She corrects Lorelai on which spoon to give Richard. As they head back toward the study, Emily tells Lorelai that Gran made these arrangements twenty years ago, so most of the businesses are no longer there, and most of the people have retired or died.
Richard storms out of his office in fury. He's just been faxed the obituary announcement, and it's sparse. With barely a mention of her family or her legacy, the newspaper just glossed over Gran's passing as if she were any common non-Gilmore. Richard is outraged, and wants to sue. He wonders why they wouldn't mention the new children's ward at the hospital that Gran paid for, and where all of the babies in Hartford would be born were it not for her. Emily tells Richard to calm down, and promises they'll take care of it. "She was a saint, that woman!" Richard shouts. Emily promises that they'll make sure it says "saint" somewhere in the article. Lorelai tries to give Richard his spoon, but he's no longer hungry. He stomps back into his study. Lorelai asks Emily if she can help. She says she'll bring coffee and a danish: "You'll never have so much fun with death in your life." Emily says it's okay, and that she has it all under control. As Lorelai stalls by her purse before she leaves, Emily makes another phone call. She interrupts to tell Lorelai that she has to go to Gran's house the next day to sort through her personal papers. Lorelai smiles and says she'll bring a cherry danish. She leaves as we fade to commercial, Emily still talking on the phone.
