I really disliked this episode, and it was really hard for me to even sit through most of the dialogue. I do not even know a word to describe how mind numbing and annoying it was.

The show would not have been as bad if the dialogue was well written. The writing is so cliché, monotonous and just plain maddening. This season is very disappointing. I was such a huge fan in previous seasons (even last), but this show is awful now.

I really couldn't stand Lorelei's rant in Paris about food and stuff. She acted very much like a spoiled little brat. "Oh, poor me, I'm in Paris and can't get a cheeseburger at 4 a.m. like I can in the U.S." I almost changed the channel because I couldn't stand it any longer.

Rory and the friends were okay.

Lane and Zach and Mrs. Kim made the show. They are great characters and have been the only consistently entertaining characters the past couple of years.

that Rory's friends were supportive and not giving me the heebie-jeebies that I had when they first appeared.

Lane's pregnancy is very interesting. I love Mrs. Kim. You'd think that we wouldn't be suprised by her character any more, but we always are.

I hate that I'm still interested even though the writing is awful this year.

Lor needs to stand up for herself again (with Chris).

Lorelai drives me batty this season. I didn't like all the references to the french being rude either.
I love the Lane pregnant storyline though

OMG - Lor is totally going to flip out about being married. That is my prediction.

I liked this episode - it was more natural, less weird - like the rest of this season.

I liked it too I was dissapointed Richard and Emily weren't in it though. They were shown in the previews and I didn't see them in the episode unless I somehow missed it??????

Can someone clue me in on the Rory/Marty thing and those girls Rory is now friends with? I must have missed those episodes.

I don't know if anything happened recently (this season) but Marty was the 'naked guy' that Rory found outside her dorm room on one of her first nights at Yale. I was confused about this storyline as well because I don't recall Marty playing any signficant role in Rory's life other than the few episodes following the naked thing. I could be wrong though.

I agree, I enjoyed the dialog much more this episode.

Didn't Amy Sherman-Palladino always plan on Rory's graduation from Yale being the finale episode of Gilmore Girls? I assumed with Rory Graduating soon this would be the last season?

I haven't been watching much, but Marty & Rory became good friends...did movies together, etc. but she would break plans with him to hang out with Logan. IIRC, Marty wanted something more & Rory was surprised by the confession. She also asked him to come along when Logan showed up unexpectedly one night & went out with all his friends, that played up the obnoxious rich kid type & left it awkward between Rory & Logan.

Didn't anyone find it a little odd that Logan returns after weeks of being away and Rory stays up all night writing? If it were me, I'd have found a better reason to stay up all night!!!

I think the deal with Marty is that he still harbors feelings for Rory...so he doesn't want his new girlfriend to know that they were friends. Seems a little strange to me :....but I think he feels that if she knew they were friends before she might clue in that he still likes her??!!?!?

I also thought the relationship between April and Luke was really odd. A few episodes ago they were still kind of awkard together and getting to know each other and now they seem very chummy. Just seemed a bit off to me.

But, overall the episode was better than some of the previous ones.

I did like how Logan put Rory in her place about where she falls on the rich kid food chain.

I liked this episode more than the most recent ones. Honestly though, it's all so drawn out and uninteresting lately, I'll be happy once they end it. Yet, I cannot stop watching

Just a heads up to everyone-Target has GG Season 5 on sale through tomorrow night for $16. None of the other seasons were on sale but it was worth the drive just to get one of the seasons I needed! They also have a bunch of other really popular movies for $5.98 etc..

It wasn't too bad today..A little crazy but not too bad..I went for the clothes they had on sale and for the Gilmore girls DVD's. I got all the Harry Potter movies except the 3rd one for 3.98 each. Batman Begins and Spiderman 2 for 3.98 and Elf for 5.98. It was lots of fun!! They had a bunch of other titles too!

So I dont know what happened but they played this ep on Saturday instead of Tuesday... Guess it's good that I caught it... The reference at the end when Luke was watching that movie was too subtle (am assuming it was a reference to the elope thing?) and I had to watch it like 5 times (thank you for my dvr) and still was like, huh?

I thought it was a movie that they had watched together when they were dating. But I've miss a lot of episodes, so I wasn't sure.

The movie was "The Philadelphia Story" -- here's a plot summary from IMDb:

"After getting a divorce from C. K. Dexter Haven, Tracy Lord prepares to marry again...however, in the days before her wedding, Haven and a reporter, posing as her brother's friend, show up at her doorstep. From there, Tracy is forced to choose among her past love, her present love, and her new love."

In the movie Tracy Lord chooses her first husband and re-marries him. I think the ending of GG's was showing Luke seeing a similarity to his situation to Lorelei -- she was going to marry Luke, but instead went back to her first love, Christopher, and married him.

Formerly New Mama to Henry, born August 2005 and Silas, born November 2010.

Yup - Doula, for a baby's name? TJ is a weirdo! I'm just happy they didn't play it totally for laughs. (or drama)

I'm also SOOOO happy that Luke grew a set and told Anna off. He is darn right. It's his kid too, and its Annas fault he wasn't around for April until recently.

I liked tonight's episode

One question, why did Rory move out of Logan's apartment? I know Logan moved to NY, but I missed the part where he gave up the apartment and Rory decides to move in with Paris.

Rory told Logan last week that she felt like she needed to move out of the apartment since she was staying there with the expectation that he would someday return to it. I think it is her attempt to become more independent, maybe? It came after their fight about elitism or whatever it was about.

Loved that Luke grew a balls and told Anna off- that has been a long time coming. Also loved TJ and Liz having a homebirth and naming the baby Doula.

Loved loved loved the Knit-a-thon, Lorelei's knitting bag, and her shirt "Knit or Go Home" I would love to have the last 2 and participate in the first.

Loved the "man date" though I hated the breakdown of the wording by the pre-pubescent girls during the Aerie Tuesdays segment. Give. Me. A. Break. But I love how Jackson got his point across with the farming analogy.

This episode seemed more in line with the past seasons. I missed the first few minutes of it and picked up when they were at the dinner table at the Gilmore's discussing the wedding party. And Lorelei made the long face again during that part- it makes me want to stab my eyes out when she does that face- it is just so darn unattractive. Speaking of attractiveness, Miss Patty looked fab this episode.

Oh, and when did Marty become Boyfriend? Imust have totally missed an episode somehow. I know a PP mentioned him but I just assumed that he was on one of the old episodes.
