Emily is telling Carol the story of Rory's cotillion, but Carol and Emily would have still been friends back then, right? Richard didn't have a falling-out with the company in the first season, did he? ["The cotillion was in the second season." -- Wing Chun] Anyway, Carol stands up the second she hears the men arguing, clearly knowing just what was going on in there. "I should get my purse," she says. Floyd, Digger, and Richard storm into the room as Floyd tells Emily that they have to go. "It's too late, Jason," Carol tells her son. Richard says that he and Digger are prepared for a fight, and that they have the money for it. Floyd says that's because Richard put his pension into the business as collateral. "It's a small community, our community," Floyd says, telling Richard that endangering his future like that is reckless. Digger asks which private investigator was tailing him. Floyd says he hired the best, which is how he found out that Lorelai and Digger were dating. "That's not true," says Emily. Richard and Emily stare at Lorelai, who is still trying to catch her breath. Floyd apologizes for spoiling Digger's secret. Floyd and Carol leave. Digger tells Richard and Emily that this isn't going to happen, and runs after his parents. For the next thirty seconds, Richard, Emily and Lorelai stand in silence, with just the sound of piano in the background. Digger enters again, and Richard pulls him into the office to talk. Emily tells Lorelai that there's no need for her to stay. Lorelai says her car's blocked in. "Oh," Emily says, and then walks away. Lorelai stands alone.
