Dinner. Rory compliments Emily on the food. "Very good, young lady," Trix says. "We all believed you." Emily shoots a death-glare to Trix. Trix asks Rory where she goes to school. Rory says Chilton. Richard says that Rory is in the top ten percent of her class. Emily says they are all proud of her and that she's going to Harvard. This does not sit well with Trix, as Richard was a Yale man, and Rory should then be going to Yale. Lorelai says that they'd like Rory to decide on her own what kind of man she wants to be. Good for Lorelai, as she's the only one that doesn't mind speaking up to Trix. "That's enough jokes for this evening, Lorelai," Trix says with a squint, and I like Trix again for being the only one that won't put up with Lorelai's constant jokes. Trix asks how Lorelai is paying for Rory's education. Emily and Richard say that they are helping out. Lorelai says it's just a temporary loan. Trix tosses her silverware down and announces she's done eating. She says that tomorrow she's planning the menu. She explains to Rory that when you live in Europe you learn something about food. Emily would like to kick this woman back to Europe in a Cornish game hen. Rory says she can't come to dinner tomorrow because she's studying for a project on Monday. She's studying from nine in the morning until past dinner? Trix says that Lorelai will have to tell her all about it. "I will. I promise," Lorelai says through gritted teeth. Emily asks if Trix is going to have any dessert. Trix answers with: "I once traveled to a small village in Cambodia. I did not eat dessert there, either."
Chilton. Louisa is on her back on a desk, assuming her normal position. Fraulein is going through a magazine. Louisa asks for the time. Fraulein says that it's almost nine. She says she'd like to own a magazine someday.
