Episode Summary

Rory forgives Logan, then needs some time for herself, so she pays a visit to Lorelai in Stars Hollow. Although Lorelai refuses to admit that she is upset, Rory can tell that she is bothered by the news that Luke will be gone for a few days on a field trip with his daughter, April. Against Lorelai's wishes, Rory pays a visit to the store owned by April's mother, Anna, to spy on her. Meanwhile, when Zack finally works up the courage to ask Mrs. Kim for permission to marry Lane, he is surprised at the deal she makes with him.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Rory forgives Logan, or does she? A lot better than the last episode, good to have just a Stars Hollow one.

    I wrote this already and it didn't save, so I'll be quick. My favourite story was probably Mrs Kim and Zach trying to write a hit song. The whole hit song than marriage thing was very amusing. I liked the second proposal at the end, Lane reacted normally this time and you could see the hapinness on her face.

    The start was a good contunation of last weeks end and I was surprised that Rory forgave Logan but she actuakly doesn't as the next day shes in Stars Hollow and is avoiding Logan's calls. She was good though, with the inn and Michel,plus going to spy on Anna at her shop.Lorelai not doing that was strange.

    Luke is still keeping his daughter seperate from his life with Lorelai, why I don't know. Oh and Emily and Richard buying a house in Stars Hollow - who'd have thought it?

    Only 5 episodes to go!moreless
  • Lane and Zach get engaged, and Rory and Logan (apparently) reconcile

    The most exciting thing that happened in this episode was Lane's engagement. Zach goes to ask Mrs. Kim for her hand, explaining that he's on the track to management at the copy store. But Mrs. Kim says she wants him to prove that he can be successful as a musician. She wants to hear his demo tape. There seem to be no hit songs on the tape, so Mrs. Kim says that Zach has to write one. Finally, after many tries, he seems to succeed. Mrs. Kim approves of the marriage.

    Rory and Lorelie are hanging out, after Rory comes to Stars Hollow to get some space from Logan. Emily and Richard come to Stars Hollow too, much to Lorelie's horror. They invite themselves over to Lorelie's house. It was funny to see the Gilmore Girls running around trying to hide anything that might raise a comment from the grandparents.

    Also, Rory goes to Anna Nardini's store, against Lorelie's wishes. Later, she notices a new bag Luke has at he Diner as being from Anna's store. She tells Lorelie, who's a littl hurt because Luke turned down her offer to get him a new duffle bag.moreless
  • Starting to feel like Gilmore Girls again!

    Okay, I was a huge fan of this episode. In my opinion, this episode was the last episode to air that actually felt like Gilmore Girls. I think most will agree that season 7 was a disappointment and season 6 was kinda of harsh, but this episode was refrshing. It had the laughs we've all missed, the two gilmores girls together.... finally! And the townies are always a brilliant addition. The conversation Sookie had with Lorelai in the kitchen did make me a little nervous, but i figured it was forshadowing or something, instead it lead to absolutely nothing! So, while this episode did have its ups and downs, i found it to be a great installment.moreless
  • Rory forgives Logan, Lane and Zach get engaged.

    I really liked this episode. Rory forgives Logan at the beginning of the episode, but only sees him again near the end. I reckon this was kind of her way of really forgiving him. She also didn\'t take any of his calles which meant booth of them got a change to deal with their situation. With regards to Lorelai and Luke. Till this point of the season I am really not sure of the way Luke is handeling the whole April thing. Why won\'t he introduce them to each other?

    Rory goes and visits the little store of Anna, against Lorelai\'s wishes.

    Lane and Zach are officialy engaged after Zach went and asked Mrs Kim for her permission to marry Lane. I loved how they wrote a \"hit\" song together.moreless
  • Rory forgives Logan kinda.

    I thought that this was a great episode. Rory was mad at Logan so she goes to star's hallow to pay her mother a visit and ingores all of Logan's calls. I loved it pay him back for hurting you by making hime freak out because you don't tell him where you are. I thought that it was Funny that Rory would go to Anna's store after Lorelai told her not to i think that i would want to know who she was though i think that is something that everyone in your life should know. I think that it is normal that Lorelai was freaking out about Luke going on a trip with Apirl she really doesn't know her and now sh e has to share him with her and she has no say in the situation.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (13)

    • Luke is repairing an old duffel bag is in this episode and Lorelai wants to buy him new luggage for April's trip, but shouldn't Luke have luggage from when he went on his cruise with Nicole?

    • While Sookie is preparing the food for Emily and Richard's visit, Rory comes in and tells them that their Jag is in the driveway. A while later, Luke seems suprised to hear that her parents are there and he immediately leaves when Lorelai tells him. Surely he saw their car in the driveway. It seems more likely that he would have called Lorelai to tell her he wouldn't be coming over.

    • Lorelai states that New London is right near Stars Hollow, while Preston is not. By all other clues given in the show, Stars Hollow is in Litchfield county, in western Connecticut, while the two towns mentioned are in south east Connecticut near the shore. Stars Hollow is most likely equal distant from both, and they are closer to each other than they are to Stars Hollow.

    • When Richard and Emily are lost in Preston, Richard states that Emily wanted them to turn south when they were supposed to turn north. In reality, Preston is north of New London, so it would make sense to go south, making Emily correct.

    • How do Lorelai and Mrs. Kim not know that Lane is engaged when the town gossips, Babette and Miss Patty witnessed Zack proposing to Lane.

    • When Rory goes to see Anna Nardini, Anna mentions that she was an only child. In He's Slippin Um Bread, Dig? and You've Been Gilmored it was mentioned that April was helped by her uncle in doing the DNA test. If Anna is an only child, and we know that it wasn't Luke's brother, then who helped her?

    • Rory said that she never knew that there was a lacrosse team from Yale until 5 minutes ago, but in the 4th season when Rory was doing try out articles before she got on the paper she wrote an article about Yale's lacrosse team.

    • When Doyle came in wearing Rory's coat, it's very interesting that Paris didn't recognize the coat Rory always wore. She didn't even question Doyle on whom it belonged to. Given that Doyle was so drunk, it's surprising that he never mentioned nuzzling Rory and taking her coat earlier that evening.

    • Watch closely in the scene where Lorelai is at Luke's Diner, and Lane runs out to greet Rory. Lane loudly shouts out "Rory!" when she opens the door and hugs her, yet Lorelai doesn't notice until about 30 seconds later that Rory is there. It's very unlikely that Lorelai wouldn't have heard Lane call out Rory's name when she went outside.

    • At Luke's, Rory doesn't even check her phone to see who's ringing. Why would she assume it's Logan? Doesn't anyone else ever call her cell except Logan and Lorelai (the latter was sitting next to her)?

    • Wouldn't Logan know that Rory's phone wasn't dead because if a phone has no battery, it goes straight to voice mail and Rory's phone always rang which means that it never automatically went to voice mail.

    • Why is Michel so upset about his system being disrupted? He could simply rip off seven post-it's of the other stack to re-create the balance.

      Let's not forget that this is Michel we're talking about! Never one to find an easy solution without causing a major drama first.

    • Rory's bangs move between takes when she is talking to Caesar in the diner.

  • QUOTES (24)

    • Lorelai: I'm sorry. But after you almost get killed on a plane and on the freeway, why would you choose to go on a terrifying roller coaster?
      Rory: Oh, boy.
      Lorelai: I mean, at that point, just stay home, right?
      Rory: It's a horror movie!
      Lorelai: Yes, but it doesn't make any sense!
      Rory: It's not supposed to make sense. It's supposed to make you sick.
      Lorelai: Fine, whatever. I'm heading over to the inn, do you want to come hang?
      Rory: No, I got to run some errands, I'll meet you there later.
      Lorelai: All right, but watch out that a street light doesn't accidentally break off, swing down and decapitate you!
      Rory: Will do.
      Lorelai: I mean, why even bother calling it Final Destination 3? At that point just call it "Now you're really, really, really dead!"
      Rory (makes a phone with her fingers: Hello, Hollywood? Boy, have I got a pitch for you!

    • Michel:(Explaining the Post-It system to Rory) The pink Post-Its are for guests checking in. The green Post Its are for guests checking out, and the watermelon Post-Its are for guests who have canceled or delayed their stay. So if we have less pink than green, than means more guests are checking in than checking out, unless we've started murdering them!

    • Lorelai: I know that traveling across country on a bus full of Little Man Tates has been a lifelong dream of yours.
      Luke: In that case, I will go.

    • Lorelai: (walks in on Michel and Rory just staring at each other) Okay, are you two having a staring contest or something, because I think for it to be legal, you both need to be sitting down.
      Michel: I was just filling your daughter in on the inner workings of the Dragonfly.
      Lorelai: Uh-oh, what did she do?
      Rory: I took some Post-Its.
      Lorelai: But the system!
      Rory: It will never happen again.
      Lorelai: Michel, you have my deepest and most sincere apologies. She was raised better than that.

    • Rory: So are you busy today?
      Lorelai: Well, I have some things to do around the Dragonfly, but for you I think I could play a little hooky.
      Rory: My role model.
      Lorelai: Well, I try.

    • Luke: (brings Rory a bunch of food) Here, start on these. I'm gonna make you some s'mores.
      Rory: He's the most beautiful man in the world!
      Lorelai: Yeah, you should see him carry a spider outside.

    • Michel: You like neon.
      Rory: I'm sorry?
      Michel: I see you have made liberal use of my pink neon Post-It notes.
      Rory: I'm sorry, Michel. Would you like me to reimburse you for the 7 pink neon Post-It notes I have used? I would be happy to, if you could break a penny.
      Michel: No, little Lorelai. It's not the money that's the problem, it's the disruption!

    • Emily: Lorelai, this is your mother. I'm calling you from the car!
      Lorelai: Okay, well, you're not calling to me from the car, so stop yelling.

    • Paris: This is going to be great. Just you and me, in our newly repainted apartment, with no men! Just Chinese food.
      Rory: We are going to get so huge!
      Paris: That's okay. We'll get a treadmill.

    • Paris: Well, well, if it isn't New Haven's favorite whorehound!
      Logan: Is Rory here?
      Paris: Yes.
      Logan: Can I talk to her?
      Paris: No. You can talk to me. What do you want to talk about? Life? Love? The symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases?
      Logan: Rory--
      Paris: Rashes, sores, insanity?

    • (after Logan convinces Rory to talk to him in the hallway)
      Rory: Two minutes, go.
      Logan: Look, I understand that you're upset and I really wish that you hadn't found out like that. But Rory, I LOVE YOU! You know that I love you. When I said that I was your boyfriend, I agreed to be faithful to you, which by the way was a first for me. And I thought it would be hard, but it wasn't. Then I asked you to move in with me. I asked you to move in with me, and I thought that was going to be hard, but it wasn't. I have been completely faithful to you, Rory. I have not been with another girl, I have not looked at another girl, I have not even thought about another girl.
      Rory: Except for Walker, Alexandra....
      Logan: We were broken up, Rory.
      Rory: No, you were.
      Logan: I thought we were broken up, I thought that's what that fight was. I thought that's what the separation was. Do you believe me? Do you believe that I honestly thought we weren't together?
      Rory: I guess.....
      Logan: So then, if you believe that. That I thought we weren't together, then in my mind I was not cheating on you.
      Rory: I guess.....
      Logan: So then, if you believe that in my mind I was not cheating on you, do you think you can forget what those vipers said today, put it behind you, and just come home with me? Come on, Rory. Just come home with me, let's forget this crappy day ever happened. Just go you want to make a pro/con list?
      Rory: Do NOT mock my pro/con list!
      Logan: I am not mocking your pro/con list. I actually think that list will come out in my favor.
      Rory: Well, I have to tell Paris I'm going.
      Logan: Absolutely, Tell Paris you are going.
      Rory: (opens the door) Woah!!! Oh!!!
      Logan: What?
      Rory: They made up...either that, or Krav Maga is way kinkier than I thought it was.
      Logan: Well, you can tell her tomorrow. After all, it is tomorrow.
      Rory: Yeah, I can just call her from home. (Logan takes her hand)
      Logan: We OK?
      Rory: (still looking upset and unsure) Yeah
      Logan puts his arm around her shoulder and they leave to go home

    • (Rory walks in to her & Logan's apartment)
      Logan: Where the hell have you been?
      Rory: Oh, I went to Stars Hollow to visit my mom for a couple of days.
      Logan: You went Stars Hollow?
      Rory: Yup.
      Logan: You could have to me Ace. Left at note, called, something.
      Rory: Yeah, I know, I should have.
      Logan: I mean, I wake up and you're gone.
      Rory: I didn't mean to freak you out.
      Logan: I kept calling your cell. I must have called it a hundred times.
      Rory: Oh, yeah. Well my cell died, and my charger was here, of course. I have to buy an extra one, you keep telling me that.
      Logan: Finally, I check in with the paper and they told me you've been emailing stuff, so at least I knew you were alive.
      Rory: I am so sorry, it just became this whole thing. My grandparents stopped by unexpectedly, which took forever. And, anyhow it's a long story, it won't happen again...I should take a shower.
      Logan: Rory
      Rory: Yeah?
      Logan: You sure everything's OK?
      Rory: Yeah, fine.
      (Logan looks unsure as she walks away)

    • (The doorbell rings. Lorelai spins around and runs to the door. It's Sookie, carrying trays of food)
      Sookie: Food!
      Lorelai: No, I'm Lorelai.
      Sookie: Heavy!
      Lorelai: That's just mean.
      Sookie: Falling!
      Lorelai: Right. Follow me.

    • (talking to Richard and Emily on the phone. They said that they were coming to see Lorelai)
      Lorelai: Wait. Wait. I don't want you guys to have to make a special trip, that really, really wouldn't make any sense! Crazy, that's like asylum crazy! Besides, Rory and I were just about to head out for a movie!
      Emily: Rory's there?
      Lorelai: Damn!
      Emily: Excuse me?
      Lorelai: Damn - straight.
      Emily: Wonderful! We'll see you both around four thirty.
      Lorelai: (hangs up) Damn it.

    • (Talking about some spiders)
      Luke: Okay, I'm going to take these guys outside. Any particular place you want them?
      Lorelai: Yeah, someplace shady, sheltered from the elements, and ideally near a talking pig.
      Luke: I asked. I have no one to blame but myself.

    • Brian: What happens when you guys get married?
      Zack: Well, me and Lane can finally have sex!
      Lane: (embarrassed) Za-ack!

    • Emily: I thought we paid 4000 dollars for a computer to give us directions not to babysit us and make decisions for us about how to live our lives. I mean, what's next, the radio won't turn on if it doesn't like the song? The engine won't start if the cup of coffee I'm holding is too hot? Maybe the car won't go in reverse if it doesn't like the smell of my perfume?

    • Lorelai: The Gilmores are moving in.
      Rory: What are you talking about?
      Lorelai: Kirk was in here today.
      Rory: Nothing good starts with Kirk was in here today.

    • Lorelai: Rory's here!
      Luke: She is?
      Lorelai: Yeah, she's outside bouncing around with Lane.
      Luke: How come she came home?
      Lorelai: I don't know, bouncing lessons?

    • Luke: You know I have never seen the Liberty Bell?
      Lorelai: Communist!

    • Paris: (Concerning the editorship argument between her and Rory) Forget it. I mean, who are we kidding? I am not cut out to deal with people. I was made to be in a lab or operating room or a bunker somewhere with a well-behaved monkey by my side.

    • Rory: Your parents are exhausting.
      Lorelai: Not as much as your grandparents.

    • Emily: I could have recommended a real professional.
      Lorelai: Well since I used a fake professional I got to pay in Monopoly money.

    • Lorelai: So, this is a nice surprise.
      Rory: What -- Lane?
      Lorelai: No, you showing up. I didn't expect to it, you being a modern busy woman and all.
      Rory: Well, I can bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (11)

    • Lorelai: I moved thirty miles away from my parents for a reason. Those thirty miles act as a buffer, so that when my mother says something to me that makes me want to kill her, I have to drive thirty miles to do it. Ten miles in, I usually calm down, or I get hungry, or I pass a mall. Something prevents me from actually killing her.  That buffer is my mother's best friend. Take the buffer away, and you got Nancy Grace camping out on Miss Patty's lawn for a month.

      Nancy Grace is the star of a syndicated TV program that exploits lurid crimes for ratings.

    • Lorelai: Why? Because Luke and I are getting married, and I guess they figure we'll be having kids and they want to be near me when that happens. Really near, like in the room wearing Bill Blass scrubs.

      Bill Blass is a high-end fashion designer.

    • Paris:  No one invited you in! Get out right now,  before I go Bonaduce on your ass!

      Danny Bonaduce is a former child star who found a new career as a professional fighter. He's also got a reputation for beating people up.

    • Lorelai: I know that traveling across the country in a bus full of Little Man Tates has been a lifelong dream of yours.

      The movie Little Man Tate starred Jodie Foster as the mother of an extremely gifted child.

    • Lorelai: The villain is death?!

      Another reference to Final Destination, where the killer is not a masked murderer or a chainsaw-wielding maniac, but death.

    • (talking about some spiders)
      Luke: Okay, I'm going to take these guys outside. Any particular place you want them?
      Lorelai: Yeah, someplace shady, sheltered from the elements, and ideally near a talking pig.

      Lorelai is referring to Charlotte's Web, a book by E.B. White where there is a talking pig named Wibler who is friends with a talking spider named Charlotte. It was later remade into two movies.

    • Lorelai: You wanna rent Final Destination 1 and 2?

      She is referring to the horror flicks, Final Destination and its sequel.

    • Rory: Well, I can bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan.

      This line originally appeared in an ad for Enjoli perfume, which had paraphrased it from the Lieber/Stoller song "I'm a Woman".

    • Lorelai: (after seeing a bad movie) Two cheeseburgers and a copy of Syd Field's book, please. We are missing the boat.

      Syd Field is the author of several books on screenwriting for Hollywood. Lorelai may have been referring to any of them, but most likely Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting.

    • Lorelai: So I see Papa's got a brand new bag.

      Reference to a song by James Brown.

    • Episode Title: I'm OK, You're OK

      The title of this episode is the same as the song released by the Dickies in 1979, which in turn is the same as an influential pop-psychology book of the 1970's.
