S3:E2 Haunted Leg

I think Kirk was extremely polite and flattering in his own way. On one hand, I feel like Lorelai should’ve accepted his date…but on the other hand, that could’ve been the wrong kind of encouragement.

Side note: This is the best robe I’ve ever seen. Speaking of Rory’s clothing, again with the black panty hose with the Chilton uniform  instead if knee socks! I am forever shocked about this. Forever.

Best robe ever

I have to ask, what is up Rory’s sleeve in the first Student Council meeting? Literally, what is in her sleeve? I went back to check because I thought I spied a wrist tattoo!

Why is Francie Acting like she barely knows Rory and Paris? They were practically Puffs many moons ago! I think Rory should’ve just gone to Paris in the first place to tell her Francie had an agenda. Big mistake not to!

Speaking of talking to the wrong person, Lorelai should’ve just called Christopher and that would’ve cut Emily off at the pass. Although Emily’s heart was in the right place, her actions were out of line.

More side notes: How sweet is that photo of Richard and Rory from their golf-at-the-club day sitting by the answering machine?

Emily telling Christopher to get out is one of the best things we ever see her do! But I’m also a little sad because I like Christopher so much.

The confrontation between Jess and Rory and at Dosie’s Market sets the scene for the tense new version of their relationship.

S3:E1 Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days

I like the dream sequence between Lorelai and Luke because it would’ve been really cute for them to have twins and fight over coffee all of the time! I know I tend to be in the Christopher or Max corner for Lorelai, but this kind of Luke I can settle for! Plus, we hear some hilarious phrases from Paris when she talks in her sleep in the opening.

In Washington, D.C., when Jamie first came on the scene, I thought for a split second he was going to be Rory’s new love interest until I saw his face light up at Paris. I’m glad to see an extended story for Paris. I have to say that I think her date outfit looked better before the addition of the sweater. And how sweet it is that Rory was talking about Jess while giving advice to Paris about liking people. I wish she would just wrtite that letter to him!

My favorite line in the episode is uttered by Paris:

“Not at night, when it’s dating time…”

Rory could not want to see Dean less and I don’t blame her because she’s been thinking about Jess all summer! I would change my plane riding clothes to see Jess too…and not just because I’m always skeezy after a plane ride. I’m sure it was crushing to see Jess and Shane kissing at the festival, but I’m sure Dean would be crushed to see her kissing Jess. Interesting that Jess has gone for someone completely opposite from Rory in looks and interests.

It is quite the bummer for Lorelai to have to admit to her parents that Christopher has reunited with his pregnant girlfriend. I wish they had been a little sympathetic instead of bringing up the past. At least it spurred Lorelai to try to make up with Luke, even though she said she didn’t come in to do so, and even if she did pretend her name was Mimi.

The Lazy-Hazy-Crazy song does get stuck in my head feels for days when I watch this episode, but I like it!

S2:E22 I Can’t Get Started

I’m with Sookie on the wedding song. Very melodic and I too cannot imagine anyone listening to the lyrics when they are staring at everyone walking down the aisle at her wedding. So, now I must say…

“Oy, with the poodles already!”

That’s probably the most memorable line of the entire series and here we find it uttered in Season 2! It’s also fitting because there is so much to cover in this episode.

I am kind of sad that Luke isn’t being very friendly to Lorelai, although I understand his position after she flew off the handle and practically made him kick Jess out. However, I am also distracted because I’m fairly certain I have the same sweater from the GAP that Lorelai’s wearing. I also still wear it, so I’m doing a little math on the age of the sweater at this point in time.

On the subject of clothing during this episode, I am curious as to how Rory managed to get these panty hose on without runners while sporting the cast on her hand and wrist.

Clothing notes!

How random of Christopher to show up at Rory’s cast removal. Strange or convenient? Odder still if you notice Rory’s t-shirt has “strange” written across the front. I’m really surprised that Sookie accepts the kilt Jackson is supposed to wear in their wedding so quickly, but the subject does lead to a little flirtation between Christopher and Lorelai.

I couldn’t be more confused about what time it is when Lorelai comes downstairs and Rory accuses her eating table 5’s almonds. Lorelai seems to be wearing pajamas and Rory looks like she ready for Chilton. I see freshly brewed coffee (which means nothing for the time of day of a Gilmore Girl) and I could venture that’s morning light in the back window. The confusion is why is Paris calling while she is at school? Would kids be voting before school even starts? Seems odd to me for Paris to be at school, but that Rory isn’t.

This is such significant episode- there is so much to say:

– I absolutely think Christopher came to town to woo Lorelai since his relationship with Sherri is going down the tubes.

– I’m surprised Sookie shows up at the inn in her wedding dress and in full makeup. I do realize those dresses look more right when you have the makeup on though.

– Looking at Christopher and Lorelai together made me think about how Rory’s name could’ve/ maybe should’ve been Rory Hayden! (I can’t  believe this thought has never even crossed my mind over the years.)

– The exchange between Luke and Jess during his bid to return to Stars Hollow is pretty sweet. They clearly have a mutual like for one another. I wonder if Jess wants to be where Rory is, if he misses Luke, or wants to be away from his mother that much.

The saddest and most exciting moments of Season 2 happen in this episode! They lead everyone down different paths. Yes, I’m am referring to Lorelai being left by Christopher because Sherri is pregnant and the tears it brings to my eyes. Jess and Rory’s kiss is exhilarating because who would’ve expected her to initiate it! It sets the scene for future episodes.

Finally, the song “Waking After Midnight” performed by Lane, Maury and Kirk certainly lifts the spirits though.
