One thing that really stands out in this episode is Emily's utter disapproval of Sherrie a woman she has never seen. She is not totally off the mark since Sherrie seemed to "worm" her way into Rory's life and really didn't seem to have any interest in getting to know Lorelai which irritates the crap out of Lorelai although she hides it very well behind a smile.
Christopher really flew off the handle at Luke's which puts Lorelai really in an embarrassing hot seat when Chris accuses her of using him to fend off her engagement to Max and other potential men in her life, she was better off keeping the comments to herself since Luke overheard Chris's angry outburst and yet, he seemed to offer a little sympathy to Lorelai when their eyes met for just a brief moment before she looks out the window and sees Chris and hug Rory in the end.
Too bad though she and Chris had a fight, and I think their budding friendship works better than having them as a couple. Although without Luke in the picture, I'd definitely say that Chris would have been the next best thing, but since Luke is in the picture later on, I'd say he would be irreplaceable.
Forgot to add the very amusing scene with the whole secret covet moment with Kirk as a distractor and Rory signaling and we see a guy jogging in a jump suit coming forward to drop the cd into Lane's bag while Kirk is busy distracting Mrs. Kim. The Jogging guy turned out to be Michel, it was so hilarious and a great scene.
