"Well you won," Lorelai smiles. Emily says she didn't win. Lorelai says that Emily didn't want her to take the money and now she's not taking the money, so therefore Emily won. Emily apologizes. Lorelai says she's not sorry. Emily says that she is. Lorelai tells her to forget it. Emily says that she ruined Rory's opportunity. She says she'll get Richard to talk to Trix and fix it. She pulls out her cell phone but can't get any reception. She says she'll go to the pay phone. Lorelai tells her to forget it. Emily brings up Chilton. Lorelai says that Rory can still go to Chilton as long as Emily isn't rethinking her offer. Emily says she isn't. "Okay, then. We're good," Lorelai says. Emily asks if she's sure. Lorelai says she is. Emily says she should go get Trix's coat. Lorelai says that Emily will be sorry to see Trix go. Emily says she doesn't know what she'll do with herself. She asks if she'll see Lorelai on Friday. Lorelai says she will. As Emily turns to leave Lorelai asks for a favor. Emily says, "Anything. Anything at all." Lorelai: "Don't make us take the coat rack back." Emily says she won't. You know, I'd be crying and fuming right now if I were Lorelai. Her daughter had a chance to be independent, and she had a chance to be more independent. They wouldn't have had to rely on Emily and Richard or cater to their whims. They'd just be able to pay for the schools that Rory got into. Does this mean that Rory doesn't even have a trust fund at twenty-five anymore? Oh, I hate it. I'd be so pissed off that I'd be flinging tea left and right. Why isn't Lorelai upset?
Lorelai meets Rory's bus with coffee. Rory says that she loaned Paris Lorelai's black miniskirt and there's a good chance she'll never get it back. Lorelai says that Rory lost a quarter of a million dollars today. "What?" Rory asks. Lorelai nods and smiles and keeps walking with her arm around Rory. They keep walking as we fade to black.
Am I the only one upset by this?
Oh, and there's no episode next week. No CuteDean again. Damn you, March.
