What's your favorite Season 3 episode?

Mine is undoubtedly Dear Emily and Richard. It was just a very well done episode and I enjoyed the flashback scenes very much. I like how they were intertwined with the rest of the episode. There was also some very nice Lorelai/Emily interaction.

There ya go! Enjoy!

Thanks [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I agree. Season 3 really had a lot of good stuff to offer.

Ooh, I loved Haunted Leg! The second to last scene was especially great! I think it's my second favorite episode, along with A Tale of Poes and Fire.

Yes, even a mediocre season of GG is better than most other TV shows!!!

I loved the beginning and the end of Let The Games Begin....and the dance marathon in They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They -- great L&L moments.

And of course, Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer -- wow!!

And the LTFH took a turn.....good and bad.

Lorelai Out Of water.....and Tales Of Poes and Fire... sure had their moments!!

And we got the 'lovely Nicole'.....nasty to some of us!! [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Haunted Leg was awesome in every way possible. Drama, humor, perfection.

Hey! A season 3 app! I was wondering when this would come. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I liked the airport scene of Lazy, Hazy, Crazy.
Lorelai: It involves the J-word.
Rory: Oh, not more about Jesus. I'm sick of him and Mel Gibson.

Lorelai: I...I just don't care anymore. He's the one missing out on something really great. (she looks at RORY)
Josh: Yeah. Two really great things. (LORELAI smiles)

I'm re-watching Those Are Strings, and, well, I'm not crying, but I'm pretty darn close. The speech, the call to Jess, the "don't get engaged" dream, the "it's not so scary anymore." I'm going to re-re-watch the end. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Ooh, enjoy! I loved the dream in the finale and the ending! It was a really nice way to end the season and it set up Season 4 very well. I loved when Rory said in her speech that the only person she ever wanted to be was Lorelai [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Aww I forgot how much I loved that episode! I didn't remember it being funny [img]smilies/lol.gif[/img] So many emotions evoked by this one. The reruns couldn't come at a more perfect time either. It's good to go back once in a while

Yeah, there was definitely a lot of comedy in DEAR. I love the scene where Young Lorelai is in labor and Emily is screaming at her, while Richard complains about not wearing the right shoes, [img]smilies/lol.gif[/img]. Classic Gilmore [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
