After Rory is accepted to the prestigious Chilton Preparatory School, Lorelai is forced to go to her wealthy parents for financial assistance. Her parents happily loan their daughter the money in exchange for an end to the estrangement and a family dinner every Friday night.

Rory is later handed a three inch binder containing one week's worth of notes from one class and meets some insufferable classmates who are determined to make her life at Chilton miserable.

1x03 "Kill Me Now" | October 19, 2000
When Rory announces that she has to pick a team sport to play at Chilton, Emily insists that Richard take Rory to the club and teach her golf.

As Lorelai and Max grow closer, Rory begins to get attached to the idea of Max in their lives, which worries Lorelai.

Stung by the details in the newspapers about her parents' messy divorce, Paris tells everyone in the lunchroom about Max and Lorelai to deflect gossip away from her and towards Rory.

Lorelai and Rory are amazed when Emily agrees to excuse Rory from Friday night dinner so that Rory and Dean can celebrate their three month anniversary. Dean treats Rory to a wonderfully romantic dinner, and then gives her a present: a car that he's restoring for her, but he has an even bigger surprise planned for her that leaves her unable to respond.

1x17 "The Breakup, Part 2" | March 15, 2001

i watched episode 12. it was okay. not my favorite.

dean is starting to annoy me in this episode. his personality is just pretty bland to me. i dont know.

i cant believe lorelai actually went on the date after what she heard! how horrendous, i would have bitched that guy out right there.

luke/lorelai at the end were adorable though, i love that she always finds her way back to the diner.

TFTNT! The OP looks FABULOUS! Seriously, thank you SO much for improving the OP and adding all of the episode descriptions, brilliant idea!

Yes, Dean is a little bland, but he was a decent guy, at least until the 4th season.

Rune was AWFUL! I wanted to slap him silly, too! Lorelai always finds her way back to the diner aka Luke. He's her pal & confidant...teehee another (different) GG reference.

no problem it was fun

episode 13 was okay, i loved the tristan/rory stuff and how he was trying to make her jealous.

i did lik rory hanging out with the girls but i wasnt the biggest fan of the whole plot.

seeing lorelai jealous of rachel was interesting.

I'm watching 14... dean/rory are going down in flames. i love it because i dont like them together. i find dean super annoying this episode, getting all hot and bothered over the fact that Rory doesnt like the idea of a housewife. i thought he was being kind of sexist. but then rory acting like a perfect little houseguest was really awkward and weird. i think a conversation would have been a better idea. she kept making little digs so it felt kind of like she was trying to prove a point and dean just wasnt getting it.

lovd all the luke/lorelai stuff and how sookie was trying to make her realize how much she actually did care about him.

already i dont like christopher... where the heck has he been the entire first half of the year? he came to see his parents but not his daughter?

I liked the concert episode because we saw Lorelai in a parental context & taking charge for a change, I liked seeing that instead of a woman trying to for in with a younger crowd. Plus, it brought Rory & Paris closer.

Oh and there wasn't any "kinda" sexist, he was being completely sexist! I definitely would've given him my .02!

I loved seeing Lorelai jealous of Rachel.

I honestly feel sorry for women who always want to please their man, it just doesn't sit right with me. That could just be me, though?

I think Dean was trying to tell rory that not every housewife is repressed or bad. Plus it gave rory an opportunity to look up that Donna read had a bussiness side. Dean also said she didn't have to be Donna reed

yeah i think they were both a little quick to say their pov's without explaining.

i just watched episode 1x15.

christopher seems nice enough, its a shame that he doesnt visit more often but i have a dad i rarely see so i do somewhat understand it. i just wish he tried to be a part of dory's life more.

i think they have a great friendship and thats why rory wanted her mom to marry him so bad but i am glad lor said no because she is right, it was quick and wouldn't have been right.

his parents were even worse than lorelais! i felt so bad for lorelai listening to them bash her like that. and while i was glad the grandfather stood up for her i didnt like how he ragged on lorelai for not marrying chris. how annoying.

cute L/L scene at the end of course.
