EMILY: Chase, I’m simply fascinated about your work situation. Tell us how you wound up back here at home. I mean, you move away to make your fortune and you end up right back here. Isn’t life funny?
RICHARD: It’s a comedy for the masses.
Lorelai and Richard both make almost the same snarky comment in response to Emily. You can see that despite their past differences, they are really bonding over despising Chase.
