[Lorleai, Emily and Rory waiting.]

LORELAI: Arr, Doctor Goldstein

EMILY: I’m Emily Gilmore.

DOC: Good, I’m glade you’re here the blockage is worse than we hoped, I think the best cause of action, really the only course of action is the do and emergency open heart surgery.

LORELAI: Open heart surgery.

EMILY: Let him finish Lorelai

DOC: We like to got into surgery as soon as possible, So now would be the time if you’d like to visit with him

RORY: Yes, yes we’d like to see him.

DOC: If you’d follow me please.

[Lorelai and Emily in line for food]

EMILY: I hardly know what anything is. That pale misshapen thing, is that a sandwich or a piece of chicken.

LORELAI: Maybe it’s a chicken sandwich, oh no it’s Quiche.

EMILY: That a Quiche?

LORELAI: That’s Quiche.

EMILY: That blobby white thing is suppose to be Quiche Lorraine.

LORELAI: Doesn’t say it’s Quiche Lorraine, maybe it’s Quiche blobby white thing.

EMILY: The audacity charging money for this.

LORELAI: Well it’s hospital food.

EMILY: What’s that suppose to mean?

LORELAI: I’m just saying it’s a cliche.

EMILY: What is?

LORELAI: Hospital food being bad.

EMILY: Exactly!


EMILY: It’s a cliche for a reason, cleshay are just true things people are tired of being true. Like a “penny saved is a penny earned”, well it is invested wisely.

LORELAI: I don’t think that’s a cliche mom.

EMILY: What do you mean, of course it’s a cliche.

LORELAI: It’s not a cliche its more an over used saying like “Sweating bullets” or “It’s as cold as ice”.

EMILY: Well some over used sayings are true, like “Children should be seen and not heard”.

LORELAI: “Mother knows best”

EMILY: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”

[Emily’s cell phone rings]

EMILY: Hello, oh Quinten hello.

[Emily walks off leaving Lorelai with the food trays, she follows Emily to a table]

EMILY: No I’m not busy at all, you haven’t interrupted a thing, thank you for returning my call so promptly. Oh that’s very kind Quinten, that’s right yes. Oh I’m fine, thank you. Listen it’s been a while since some of the paperwork, yes I was wonder if you could fax some things over here to the hospital, I think I have access to a machine. Well the first thing I’d like you to fax is his will. [Lorelai looks surprised] That’s right both the standard Will and the living Will. Well I’m not sure about the DNR provisions he established. Oh that would be wonderful, thank you Quinten, talk to you soon bye.

LORELAI: Mom what was that.

EMILY: Do we like this table or are we too close to that man with the IV. Honestly shouldn’t there be a separate dining area for sick people, doesn’t seem right.

LORELAI: Mother you’re getting dads will faxed here?


LORELAI: Why you need to read it right now.

EMILY: Well yes.

LORELAI: You want to make sure he life you the Mercedes and Jag?

EMILY: I don’t care what you think I’m being pragmatic.

LORELAI: You know what I’m not hungry any more.

[Lorelai gets up and leaves]
