Lorelai Gilmore App. #111 - 'Cause she's livin on a prayer, baby.


Banner by the so very creative Cher!

[img]smilies/flowers.gif[/img] Welcome to the Lorelai Gilmore Appreciation Thread 111! [img]smilies/flowers.gif[/img]

The title refers to the scene in The Incredible Shrinking Lorelais, when Lorelai wears a Bon Jovi hat to cover up her messy/undone hair [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

We invite everyone to take advantage of Lauren's growing and dedicated fanbase by taking part in the Lauren Graham Board for more Lauren-centered discussions. There is now a Lauren Graham Appreciation thread very similar to this one there for your enjoyment. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Check out the last thread here

Heh, no ****. Great start, Emily. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Okay, I'm having the day from hell today and on those days the little things become even more important than on "normal" days. So watching GG today made me a little happy, cause it was such a great episode. My girls are back.

The opening scene was so cute. I love it when Lorelai and Luke are being cute together. The check stuff was sweet as well. Especially the written "Thank you" in the end. I mean, of course she should be able to say it outloud, but it was just so Lorelai to do it like that. And the look on her face said it all.

While I'm no huge fan of the dress Lorelai wears (no, actually it's just the pattern or whatever I don't like, the cut is great) she looks smashing in it. And that JG-trainer is working wonders on her arms. They're so great and fit now. Emily and Richard bickering is always great.

Lorelai doesn't know that Rory's been sick? As if. I get that they're trying to point out that they never get to talk anymore, but I don't really buy that she wouldn't tell her mother she's sick.

Aw, Kirk has friends now. He looked so happy, playing with the dogs.

Dean is clearly not over Rory. And Lindsey seems like such a dull suburbwife. You could do so much better, Dean.

Poor Lane and her mom. I really hope they work this out. I feel so incredibly bad for them. And dude, the commands her cousin got from her mother. It was like in the military. Not that I've ever been there, but I can imagine it would go something like that. "Step away from Lane". Seriously? Who talks like that? But Lord what a babbler she was when MilitaryMom wasn't present.

I was looking forward to having Lane live with Lorelai. I mean, it's sweet that she has her own place now and I'm so happy for her, but that means we have to hang out with the band to get to see Lane. Cute when she hugged them, though.

The girls at the mall was so sweet. Some Lorelai and Rory quality time again. And then when we add Emily, it became even better. Loved her intense and manic shopping (how I wish I had that much money), but loved her breakdown even more. How embarrassing, but how well acted and how great. And the Emily and Lorelai scene at the food court was fantastic. I love it when they put these two women together and let them play with emotions. And I'll be damned, but Emily actually gave Lorelai credit for how she's running her life. I almost choked on my water then.

More sweetness in the diner at the end. Luke loves his girls. And awww when Lorelai gave him the rose. And he walked away, smelling it. Aww.

The final scene with Richard and Emily was so painful. They have things to work out. And Emily seems to be heading towards a real breakdown. I'm excited to see where they're taking this.

Emily, do you want me to reopen the last thread so you can quote the first post? I'll be around later tonight, probably around 9 central.

The opening scene was great and I loved the look on her face.

I was impressed by this episode. I wasn't expecting much from it because it looked like it was going to be filler. And it was, but it was enjoyable. I wouldn't want too many filler episodes (that's been a problem in the past) but if we're going to have some they might as well be entertaining.

I loved the opening scene as well as when Lorelai spoke with that British accent (was that in the beginning scene?) it was hilarious..I almost fell off my chair!

Nice job, Emily despite the plain-ness! I'll forgive you!

It's all cool about the first post.. at least we have another thread up! You did good, Emily! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I said all my episode stuff over at the JJ thread. When I watch the whole episode in its entirety, I will post again.

I love all of Lorelai's scenes.. with Luke and Emily. The British accent had me rolling! [img]smilies/lol.gif[/img]

My day started off pretty *****ty.. as I said at the JJ thread. But Kevin said he'll take me out to make it up to me, so I'm feeling a little better. I'm opting for an Orange Julius at the mall. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Emily, it's open now. I came by last night and FF was down. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

I didn't know either until I asked. If you quote the opening post in the thread you can copy and paste it into a new thread and it includes all the code for you. You don't have to do all the [ URL= ] and [ IMG ]by hand. It works really well for threads that use the same caps for every thread.

What is Orange Julius? We don't have it here but I've heard of it in books and on TV for years. All this time I've been imagining a place that sells only orange juice. [img]smilies/lol.gif[/img] I know it has to be more than that, but what do they have?

Awww, now see, knew I could count on you girls to get a nice new thread started. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Great job Emily!

OT: I'm back! We drove, and drove, and drove. Kelly Clarkson is a-frickin-mazing in concert. Clay Aiken is pure cheese whiz, but has a good voice. Did I mention Kelly's awesome? Cause she was, you ever get the chance to see her live, run don't walk.

Okay, something that made me laugh hysterically at Scene in Mall. Lorelai typing on the computer. LMFAO, then when the camera changed angles you could see it was a blank screen. Oh, man. Funny.

Pink is so Lauren's color. That sweater in the teaser wasn't that cute, but the fit and the color just looked awesome on her.

I love that Emily commented on the blue dress. It looked a lot better without the jacket.

Same here! I love how Lorelai exaggeratedly fakes everything. Whoever said that that scene seemed more Lauren than Lorelai (sorry, can't recall who) was right. That Dickens accent was very in line with the voices we hear Lauren break into during interviews.

Another fake: Lorelai and Emily eating at the food court. If you look closely, you can see that several times, the both of them are biting down on empty plastic forks. Not sure why, but that was funny to me as well. The camera tries to cut to hide some of it, but it's still somewhat obvious. Rory, however, does have real food in her fingers when she's eating the pie.

Emily- Great job!

Alexis- I like Clay more than Kelly. *hides* But I'm glad you had a good time, I knew you would! So I'm guessing it was worth the 16-hour drive, eh?
