LORELAI: I don’t get it. For the last week, every five minutes she’s calling me checking on shoe fittings and curtsy progress, and have I talked Rory into putting her hair up yet, and then tonight, nothing.
A reminder of all the preparations Rory’s been having for the ball, under Emily’s supervision, that we don’t see onscreen. It seems uncharacteristic of Emily that she’s left everything to the last week though – Rory’s had almost two weeks to get ready. And strangely enough, she’s gone silent, the very day before the ball.
