Rory's in that one classroom they have at Yale. Her philosophy class is wrapping up. Oh, too bad next week's class is about morals. Rory could have used that one last semester.
Stalker Daddy waits outside Rory's classroom with two coffees. Man, if my dad had ever done that, I'd never stop bragging. I'd be like, "Your dad's a fireman and saves lives? That's pretty cool. But one day after a really boring philosophy class where I was like, 'Gah, this is boring. I wonder what marriage I should break up next.' I like, walked outside of class and Dad was there with coffee! It was awesome!" Sidenote: I cannot do a scarf count for this episode, since I never learned how to count that high. Thanks for the public-school education, Dad! Christopher talks about himself in the third person, which is always creepy, in an attempt to say that he's no longer going to be creepy. Rory fidgets and pouts and conveys "annoyed" as much as possible. All this snow and nobody's wearing a hat or gloves? And why are the scarves all open and draped around them like that Good Will Hunting math teacher? Christopher finally gets to the point: "I hate our relationship, okay? I hate it." Love you too, Dad. Christopher continues: "This wall? This stupid wall? It sucks. And I put it there." Rory hugs her coffee, which I guess isn't too hot. Christopher says he's been in Hartford a lot because his dad is sick and his mom's with his baby. Why can't his mom be with her husband? Why can't you be with the baby, Christopher? He says he had this wall with his father, and he doesn't want to have the same relationship with Rory. He doesn't want her visiting him when he's old and sick just because she has to. Hey, Christopher. Maybe right now you should work on patching things up with your dad instead of your young, healthy daughter. Just a suggestion. Also, you might want to go change your baby's diaper. Because your mom? Little preoccupied with her sick husband. I just tried to start the TiVo with my coffee mug. That can't be a good sign. Christopher hands Rory a fistful of creams and sugars, as he (predictably) didn't know how she took her coffee: "So I got you everything." For a change. He'll buy her everything when it's free. Now if you'll excuse Rory, Christopher, she's got to go back to class because her grandparents are spending a fortune to raise her in such a way that she'll forget her shitty deadbeat dad.
