I don't have time to kill you right now, Kirk. Come back in a couple of hours.
Twenty-three is old. It's almost twenty-five, which is, like, almost mid-twenties.
And then we take the "Craziest Mother-Daughter" title from Judy and Liza.
Oh, my God, she's about to deep-fry a Bounty Bar. I want to move in with her and call her Mommy.
One more thing, I need to borrow a little money, 300 bucks, it’s just a loan, oh hell, it’s for my bail.

414:

It was cute to see Lorelai take her first reservation at the dragonfly. Not as cute seeing her with the money problems lol. I felt bad for Sookie with her baby, but I mean, she agreed to be partners with Lorelai and she needed to be more helpful.

It was nice to see Dean again but its hard to see him married when you know he's not 100% over Rory. The hug at the end was sweet, but also sort of meh because he's married.

Lane still living with Rory is weird, you can't live in a dorm when you dont go to school there lol. I thought it was good she moved out and sweet of Lorelai to let her stay with her.

Lorelai said she wanted a partner but shes dating Jason? lol. Of course though, she had to rely on Luke again.

In general a sort of blah episode with a lot of random scenes. lol. Def. my least favorite season so far...

if they wanted to do Dean and Rory again they should have made Dean and Lindsey get an annulment or something...

Glad you like it Jen, I wasn't sure which one to go with.

I think the point of the whole Dean/Rory thing was to show Rory making a huge mistake.

Great choice to go with that quote as the title, I can hear Lorelai uttering those very words in my head.

The jewelry exchange was at the Firelight Festival, right? As I look at the season as a whole, there were a lot of great episodes and moments. I enjoyed seeing Rory at Yale, making new friends.

And seeing the always-put-together Lorelai struggle with her dream to open the Inn was a strong story to explore.

There are good moments and some decent episodes but overall its def. my least favorite so far.

415:

Not sure who the writer was this episode but all the gay jokes wouldn't fly in this day and age.

Luke lending the money to Lorelai was SO FREAKING SWEET. SDFSDFSFSD. I also really loved the ending scene with Rory and Lor at the diner.

Poor Emily feeling like Richard is working too much.

Sad to see Lorelai and Rory drifting apart a tad but I was glad they got to spend time together in the episode.

Dean and his wife were super cringey this episode... Everything just majorly pointed at him being very unhappy, and that longing look at Rory....

I do like the subtlety in Lane’s storyline. Glad she finally moved out and can display her cds out in the open.

Paris doesn't have a lot to do this season.
