Lorelai, Rory and Emily take a road trip to North Carolina to attend a wedding; Lane goes into labor.

The show tune Emily puts on in the car is "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" from the musical "Oklahoma!". The plot of the musical has subtle similarities to the Gilmore Girls. The story revolves around a woman, Laurey, who has to decide between two men (similar to Lorelai deciding between Luke and Christopher). The musical also features a fund-raising auction where the ladies make lunch baskets for the men to bid on to win the company of the lady for lunch (a so-called "box social"). The same kind of auction was featured in the episode "A-Tisket, A-Tasket" (Season 2, episode 13), where Jess out-bid Dean for Rory's lunch basket. See more
