Trix says that since the last time she saw Lorelai she's grown up, gotten pregnant out of wedlock, raised a child and still hasn't "bothered" to get married. She asks if she left anything out. Lorelai says that she also got her ears pierced in that time. Trix says she's always hated scandal but has always appreciated self-sufficiency. She asks Lorelai how she supports Rory. Lorelai says she runs an inn. Trix asks if it's hard work. Lorelai says it is. "Good," Trix says. "Hard work is good for a woman. Makes her stronger. I admire people who enjoy hard work." Suddenly Trix is becoming a little Southern in her fancy pants. Emily returns with a bowl of nuts. "Thank you, Emily," Trix says. She holds out her arms. "I suppose I could just put these nuts in my hands." Emily puts down the bowl and says she'll be right back. Lorelai asks when was the last time she saw Trix. "You were still in your teens. Wild hair flying everywhere. I see you've taken care of that." Lorelai says she joined a support group. Trix: "That was a joke." Lorelai: "Yes, it was." Trix: "Very good." Lorelai: "Thank you." Emily returns with a tray of plateware and Trix announces that it's time to go to the dining room. She asks Richard to escort her. He does. Emily says that she doesn't think dinner is ready yet. Trix turns around and says, "Well, perhaps our presence in the dining room will teach your help that when one is told dinner is at seven, people often expect dinner to be at seven." Emily whines, "But it's only five after, Mom!" Trix turns to Richard and says, "Richard. In the event that I'm kidnapped and a ransom is demanded at a certain time I would prefer that Emily not be in charge of the drop-off." Richard giggles and escorts his mother into the dining room. Everyone else follows, leaving Emily alone in the living room holding her tray of plateware.
