Question How to run emacs in CLI inside of GUI?

I tried Google search and reading man page options for emacs but couldn't find... If I run emacs in GUI, it starts GUI for emacs. I want to run it in CLI in rxvt. How do I do it?

In a terminal type:
emacs -nw

It was in man pages (man emacs) by the way. The -nw is same as --no-window-system.
