“All my credit cards still say, ‘Mrs. Richard Gilmore’. But the Sandcastle? The Sandcastle says, 'Owner: Emily Gilmore’.”
I cannot describe how much I cried at this, at the entire scene but especially this line. This is everything to me. Emily spent her life being Richard’s wife and when he dies, she is adrift. But here? She is learning how to be just Emily Gilmore - everything big that was bought before was through Richard. But the Sandcastle - a place she still shared with Richard - it’s hers.
I cry every time thinking about it, about this moment and how Kelly Bishop makes Emily shine here. She is happy, and she is content, and she is proud. She is Emily Gilmore, and I will miss her most of all.
