Ugh..I so dislike Christopher..I hate that he's going to be around so much this season. YUCK!!! Go away!!!!!!!!!

Paris is awesome..Cracked me up!! She's always a riot!

I'm worried about Logan..They certainly didn't make everything look like it will be all happy for them...I'm waiting for Logan to swoop in and make a play for Rory!!

Luke and Lorelai standing in the middle of the road having an argument. Luke basically says he's moved on or something to that effect.

ETA: From TV Guide

That's What You Get, Folks, for Makin' Whoopee - Gilmore Girls
Lane and Zack return from their honeymoon in Mexico, each with their own unique horror story; Lorelai has an emotionally painful encounter with Luke that's compounded by an ugly confrontation with Rory after she learns that her mom slept with Christopher; and Luke finds out that Kirk has opened an eatery that is nearly a copy of his.

I loved the booty call comment though- "because you're not 18 and it's not 1997" or whatever she said. I could actually hear the words come out of mouth at some point. LOL

I did kind of feel sorry for Christopher though- I mean, I'm not entirely sure that he didn't know it was a booty call in the first place, kwim? I just hope that he doesn't force his way into her life when she in a vulnerable state.

Luke- I guess it's better to come to the party late than to never show up at all buddy, but man oh man, you should have looked at the time a little closer. I felt so bad for Lorelei when she said to Suki that he didn't want to fight for her- I actually teared up a little. I mean, who wants to feel like the person they love isn't willing to fight for them no matter what.

Love the Rocket and the Logan/Rory connection in the episode. Really cute and very GG. Paris rocks the house- I could totally hang with someone as crazy as her. She was in top form last night. I love the how she said that she would get rid of the stupid but the lazy runs deep (again, I am paraphrasing).

Previews for next week are not looking good- I hate the Luke appears to have his petty attitude again. Didn't he get the same petty tone when the whole Christopher thing went down last time- like he becomes so morally superior to Lorelei? Like there was nothing she could do to apologize and she was missing out on the best thing in the universe by not being with him? I mean, I am a Luke/Lorelei (lukelei? perhaps) fan as much as the next person but not to the point that he is allowed to be nasty to her. If that's the tone he is going to take, I may be switching my allegiance to Team Christopher.

I think Luke may be good riddance.

You know I almost get where Luke is coming from. I think being in a relationship with someone who had a kid with someone else could be a little intimidating. I mean, imagine dating someone knowing they've had a kid and an on and off relationship with someone else for years. The person's parents also want them with this other person and aren't at all hesitant to tell you this. These people are emotionally connected and always will be. I think that would make me feel quite insecure.

On the other hand I think Luke has been a big jerk and treated Lorelai like crap for months. She shouldn't have put up with it. And she shouldn't have run to Christopher for comfort..

Oh well. I'll still be hooked.

I know what you mean. I feel like the Christopher thing is so DEAD. There are creative people behind this show so WHY does she always end up running back to Christopher. I'm tired of that. Of course, I won't stop watching it but that does annoy me.

Sorry about your reception problem. We have rabbit ears too, but luckily that's one station that comes in really well.

Where in MA are you? If you get really desparate PM me. We can share our TV.

I loved the line when L. says "I'm the perfect storm of caffine and genetics"

I really enjoyed this episode. Lauren Graham was awesome. The depth of emotion she portrayed was incredible. I really felt for her in this episode. While I don't think the whole Christopher thing was a good move, I'm glad she is sticking with her decision, and that she made one in the first place.

Christopher and the booty call issue:

He calls the next day to say it was *fun*? What the heck? How in the world is that appropriate? Your long time ex comes to you in tears and depressed, you do the deed, and then call the next day to say it was "fun"? What an idiot! He should have called to ask how she was, do you want to talk more about what was bothering you, etc...not "this is not a booty call" with a lecherous voice. Someone get the barf bag!

I thought the new writers did a good job matching the writing and pacing of the show to last year. The pace was a little slower in their speech, but it was still wonderful and clever.

I loved the racket ball scene--classic Gilmore!

I think the whole April thing really threw Luke. He had never been a dad then all the sudden he is one. I can see how that would change someone. I still think he acted like a jerk. But I see how that situation could throw someone, you know?

I agree. I think that realistically it wouldn't be a typical reaction-- the daughter would not suddenly replace the woman he's been longing for for years. The thing that made Luke seem great for Lorelai was that he did care so much-- so once he stopped, they didn't really make a good couple anymore. They don't have that much in common, what held it together was the bond of mutual caring.

If next weeks episode really has Luke being an outright jerk to Lor, I hope they never get back together. Yuck. I think Lor could do better.
I think she needs someone well travelled, intelligent, cultured...yet funny and at ease.

I'm really sad that Rory get let down by Logan with the plane ticket. If I were her, I would have told him that I really wanted to go to London NOW or in a couple of weeks to spend some time with him.

I wish these women would stand up for themselves!!

I am new to posting on this thread, I usually just lurk. I am a HUGE GG fan. I quote it and relate it to almost all life circumstances...oddly amusing.

I was so emotional last night. I cried so hard when Lorelai told Luke about Christopher. He was so desperate to keep her in his life. When he said something about his life not meaning anything if he could not share it with her (or something like that) I could not even hold back anymore...it was all out hysterics.

I am a little sad about the way things look like they are heading. Luke has screwed up so much recently, but he did it with good intentions. He was so crummy to Lorelai, but he thought this was the only way to make it work with his daughter. It looks like they are going to put Lorelai and Christopher together, and I think that is so disappointing. If Lorelai told Luke he was the only person she ever loved would the break up not be that much worse for her. I just do not think she would get into another relationship with Christopher so soon after, especially with their history. She knows it is not going to be casual, get your mind of the love of your life, dating. I do not have anything against Christopher, but I feel like there has been too much leading up to Luke and Lorelai being together. They waited years for each other, and I really liked them together before all the April stuff. Remember the ice skating rink he made for her…

My other issue is that Lorelai really did not appear to be grieving over the relationship as I would expect she would. I know that she said that it hurts too much to be in the relationship because of all the rejection and him not fighting for her, but she seems to be going through the breakup too easily. I do not expect the same act as the last time they broke up, but I thought it was strange how she did not even want to be with him when he arrived and asked her to elope. He did not fight for her that night, but he came to her the next day desperate to keep her in his life. I can definitely understand her perspective of not wanting to be involved in something that hurts so much, but on the other hand she was willing to have the relationship mended by an elopement the night before. Once she told him about Christopher I am sure things would have worked out the same, but this time it was her fault that they could not work out. She seemed to put it all on Luke because of his bad reaction, but she made an even worse one.

I look forward to discussing all the upcoming episodes.

I don't like Rory very much actually. I watch for the adult characters.
post #160 of 771
I'm around the same age as Lorelei so I definitely relate better to the grown ups. heh heh. I can't imagine having a college aged child. A couple of my friends have older children and it seems so surreal to me.
I mean, I'm just starting out!! LOL.
