After spending a day with Rory in Stars Hollow and seeing where Lorelai lived when Rory was a baby, Emily is inspired to create what she thinks will be a teen-dream bedroom.
After Rory discovers that Lorelai is seeing Max again, she blows up at her mother and escapes to her grandparent's house. Lorelai worries she has taught her daughter to fear commitment.
Richard's mother arrives from London and offers Lorelai a trust fund for Rory's education. Emily fears she will lose contact with Lorelai and Rory if this happens.
On the rebound after a fight with Dean, Rory kisses another boy at a party. Meanwhile Lorelai shows up at Max's house for a night of passion.
