[Yale graduation party for Rory, there are dozens of people. Lorelai and Chris walk up to Rory.]


RORY: Hi dad.


[They kiss on the cheek]

CHRISTOPHER: It’s good to see you.

LOGAN: Good to see you too sir.

CHRISTOPHER: So you getting excited?

RORY: Yeah I can’t believe it’s tomorrow.

[Glasses tapping sound as Richard starts to speak.]

RICHARD: Ladies and gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen. First let me thank you for coming to celebrate my grand daughters graduation. Ouch [Emily pinches Richard on the arm.] I do beg your pardon, celebrating our grand daughters graduation.

EMILY: Well I can’t let him take all the credit, have you seen her, can you blame me?

[Rory and Logan smile at each other as the crowd chuckles.]

RICHARD: So when my wife and I sat down to write this toast we ran into something of a problem. All of our words sounded too mundane, to insignificant to mark such an auspicious occasion as Rory’s graduation from Yale, so instead. Maestro.

EMILY: Please excuse we’re not singers.

[Piano music starts]

RICHARD: Never let them see you sweat dear.

[Short pause and the music plays.]

RICHARD: [singing] You’re the top.

[Rory and the crowd are surprised]

RICHARD: [singing] You have graduated.

EMILY: [singing] You’re the top, you’re grand parents are elated.

RICHARD: [singing] Newspaper editor, Phi Beta Kappa, WOW!

EMILY: [singing] You’re a revelation, a huge sensation.

RICHARD: [singing] You should take a bow.

EMILY: [singing] You are done, no more school for you.

RICHARD: [singing] There is nothing now that you can’t do.

EMILY: [singing] You make us proud, we’ll sing it loud.

RICHARD: [singing] It’s true.

RICHARD & EMILY: [singing] ‘Cause now Rory you’re a Bulldog through and through.

[Applause and laughter from the crowd]

LOGAN: Yeah.

EMILY: Stop.

RICHARD: Oh thank you, thank you.

[Rory goes to kiss Richard and Emily]

RORY: Thank you for that.

EMILY: We meant every work of that song.

RICHARD: We certainly did, even the ones we sang off-key. We’re so proud of you.

RORY: Oh thank you so much, you know that none of this would be possible without your help. You should all know that, that there is no way that I could be a Bulldog “through and through” if it weren’t for these two. So thank you so much grandma and grandpa.

RICHARD: Congratulations Rory, to you.

[They toast]
