Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Rory finds out something about Logan and Lorelai baby-sits for Christopher. Still good but not only did the whole thing feel disconnected but some of the acting felt off too.

    Right so you could say this was a big episode, Lane and Zach getting engaged and Rory breaking up with Logan, obviously Paris and Doyle's break-up as well. To be honest I wasn't greatly impressed by the episode which since were into the final 7 episodes of this season I thought it would be done better.

    Firstly, Lane and Zach's engagement is a bit weird...I mean wouldn't they just get back together. But I'm not complaining hugely because I think there wedding could make a brilliant episode. Lane's reaction was strange, we knew she was happy....but it wasn't as happy as I predicted.

    Now Logan makes us not like him once again when Rory learns that he slept with other girls during thanksgiving when they were having time off. I though Rory's confrontation of Logan could have had miles more emotion in it....Alexis just stared blankly at the screen the whole didn't seem real.

    Plus her drunkenness didn't exactly convince me, but her and Doyle were amusing together. As was Paris when we saw her, the whole Chinese food and no eye contact was funny. As for the Lorelai/Christopher thing, it was amusing...well a bit. But didn't really relate to anything, Chris admitted his kid is big news.

    We did see more of Lorelai's discomfort at never seeing April and how Luke is handling the situation when Lane tells stories about Luke's daughter. Rory moved back in with Paris..probably the highlight of the episode!

    Hopefully we won't get many more likemoreless
  • Lorelai offers to babysit for christopher & is horrified @ Gg\'s behavior. Rory attends Honors wedding & while she helps Honor get ready she finds out that Logan didn\'t exactly spend they\'re \"time apart\" without some company.Lane recmoreless

    It was sad to see Logan & Rory\'s relationship go back on the rocks after they finally worked through they\'re previous problems, it was nerve-racking because of that. The Christopher & Lorelai scene was what dragged this episode down this was true for several other episodes in season six. The best part of this episode was Lane & Zack getting back together in a surprising way, it was so exciting to see the first of Rory’s friends get engaged. The writing for this episode was good but there were no good lines to quote.moreless
  • Unbelievable...

    Logan is a jerk. Well, what a surprise, I knew it all the time. I liked him and I liked him with Rory, but this episode made very clear that he's just such an idiot... He's not really an ass, but he's so unexperienced with relationships and real committment that he was not able to deal with the situation he and Rory were in. He seriously thought they were broken up, I believe him. But that's still not a reason to hook up with all your sisters' friends, right? I was completely shocked when I found out, just like Rory. And also just like her I felt the need to get drunk ;-)

    But this episode was well balanced. On the one hand there was the Rory drama, which was fun until the dramatic part began. And on the other hand, there was Lorelai babysitting Gigi. OMG, it wasn't even funny, I'm just realizing. It was awful... :D :D :Dmoreless
  • Lorelai watches Gigi and Rory finds something out about Logan.

    I thought that this was a wonderful episode and i really enjoyed watching it. I thought that it was nice of Lorelai to watch Gigi for Christopher and i think that Gigi is a spoiled brat. I thought that it was nice of Rory to hang out with the bradial party before the wedding evan though she found out that Logan had slept with all of them. I thought that it was funny that Logan said it was not cheating because they broke up evan though i do not remember him telling her that it was over between them. I thought that it was funny that Rory went back to Paris's apartment after she talked to Doyle and found out he Left the apartment and Paris.moreless
  • A proposal, a wedding, a panel, and a babysitting job. Also, a really funny image of Doyle in Rory's coat! :)

    This was a really good episode. It wasn't an amazing one, but thats okay, because it had some really funny parts in it.

    First of all, it was nice to see Kirk, Zack, Brian and Gil again. But there wasn't any Sookie and hardly any Luke! Also, no Emily or Richard. But...Chris appears and also Gigi. She is such a spoiled brat, but I think she's soooo cute!! I really liked the dialogue between Chris and Lor before, while and right after Rory's panel. It was funny. "To think that we created her." "Out of thin air." And "Dud?" And lots more. I also liked when Rory was drunk! She was so funny! "Don't touch my stuff," tantrum. I thought Doyle in Rory's coat was so funny! :)

    I think that Rory might have overreacted just a little when she found out about Logan and the bridesmaids. They WERE broken up, but Logan should have told Rory that they were, before he "fooled around and hooked up" with Honor's friends. But I still feel sry for Rory.

    Okay, Gigi is cute, but SO spoiled. I thought what Lorelai said to Gigi was kinda funny: "Fine, I get it, I don't like it when people talk to me when I'm watching TV either." Or, "I know this is cliche', but just you wait until your father gets home!" And when Chris dropped Gigi off, "Do you want to give Lorelai a hug?" "NO!!!" And "I think the Olsen twins weigh less now then they did on this show."

    OMG, Lane and Zack are going to get married! I can't believe tha would ever happen. But I think its kind of cool. A question, "I wonder how Mrs. Kim will react when she hears?" I heard that there was going to be a wedding at the end of the season, now I KNOW it's going to be Lane and Zack's. Although I would rather see Lorelai and Luke get married at the end of the season, instead of Lane and Zack.

    I'm also glad that Rory and Paris are friends again, and that Rory is moving back in with Paris. Lorelai should be relieved!moreless

      Logan: I wish I could be there for you.
      Rory: Oh, you do not.
      Logan: I do too.
      Rory: You would be asleep in three minutes.
      Logan: The pumps would have kept me going for at least four. I'm in a suit at two o'clock in the afternoon. Honor has to have everyone dressed for a wedding rehearsal. How did I get conned into this?
      Rory: Into what?
      Logan: Being one of Josh's groomsmen.

      Rory: Your tie is crooked.
      Logan: But as of today, Josh is simply the guy who holds my sister's purse when she goes shopping and because of that, I have to spend the next six hours practicing how to walk in a straight line.
      Rory: You have yet to accomplish that, so the practice wouldn't hurt.
      Logan: I'm not there and I'm already bored.
      Rory: You could always talk to your friend, Flasky.
      Logan: Right, Thanks for the reminder. I just don't understand wedding rehearsals, the bachelor party, I get.
      Rory: I bet you do.
      Logan: The actual ceremony I get. But the rehearsal I don't get.
      Rory: Wallet?
      Logan: And after we finish rehearsing, I have to sit through a five course dinner surrounded by my new family, and Honor's brigade of moronic bridesmaids.
      Rory: Oh, come on. You love Honor. Her friends can't be that bad.
      Logan: Oh no. Blondie, Dipsy, Bubbles, Four Nose Jobs and Charm McGee, all great gals.
      Rory: Meow!
      Logan: Seriously, can't you just do the panel, blow off the mixer and meet me for dinner?
      Rory: Logan...come on. By the time I get out of there and get back here to change, drive all the way to New York, dinner will be over.
      Logan: No, it wouldn't. Dinner is never going to be over. It's going to last forever.
      Rory: I will be here, waiting for you when you get back (leading Logan to the door and helping him put his coat on) and I will have aspirin.
      Logan: Fine, I'll be back by eleven, ten of eleven, possibly ten thirty.
      Rory: Go
      Logan: Fine. (he leaves, then rushes back in)
      Rory: Did you forget something?

    • (Rory is sitting in the room where Honor & the Bridesmaids got ready)
      Logan: Here you are.
      Rory: Here I am.
      Logan: I was looking all over for you. I didn't see you when I was walking down the aisle, I looked for you during the ceremony. Where were you?
      Rory: Here
      Logan: Here? You missed the wedding?
      Rory: I'll apologize to Honor later.
      Logan: Forget Honor. What's going on? Rory?
      Rory: You didn't say a word. You just let me walk into a room full of girls you had sex with. Oh, no wait I'm sorry. You just had sex with two of them, one of them you just fooled around with. Whatever that means. She spared me the exact perimeters of the fooling around. You want to fill me in?
      Logan: Rory....
      Rory: You know what? Never mind. I've got a good imagination, I can figure it out.
      Logan: Ok, look....

      Logan: No, I did but we were broken up.
      Rory: No, you were broken up, not me. I thought we were just taking some time.
      Logan: Apart, not seeing each other.
      Rory: Yes, taking time not seeing each other for awhile, that doesn't mean broken up.
      Logan: Oh, come on....
      Rory: No! break up you have to tell the other person. You can't just decide, that you are broken up and go off and...God! I can't believe that I fell for all your stupid tricks. The coffee cart and going to my mother. You went to my mother. Why would you bother going through that? You had plenty of back up. What do you need me for?
      Logan: Because I love you!
      Rory: No! Don't!
      Logan: Rory, I didn't cheat on you! I didn't lie to you!
      Rory: You didn't tell me!
      Logan: Of course not, why would I tell you? Why would I want you to be hurt and upset and angry?
      Rory: Blondie...Ditzy... I love the cover...pretending all those were worthless idiots.
      Logan: They are worthless idiots. Shooting their mouths off in front of you like that.
      Rory: It's not their fault!
      Logan: It is their fault! They love doing crap like this, causing trouble.
      Rory: We were only apart for like two seconds and you managed to sleep with everyone of your sister's friends. How did you even do that? I mean, did you work them in shifts? Were there charts, signals, B12 shots?
      Logan: I was depressed. I was lonely. I was upset. I've known these girls forever. It was just companionship, OK? It meant nothing.
