That's just it, she tells Emily she's doing fine and loving her life, but she tells Rory there's no way and no how she's permitted to even look like she'll end up in the same place. Transferring herself onto Rory (Once Emily was gone) isn't holding her responsible, it's giving herself an excuse to take whatever measures are necessary to prevent the "inevitable" pregnancy.

I haven't been on here in a week but i feel obliged to throw in my two cents on the Lorelai/Rory should-i-go-to-the-dance scene. I thought this was a good example of Lorelai being a combo of mom and friend to Rory. She was talking to Rory as a concerned mom, but in a friendly conversational way, trying to look beneath the surface of Rory's concerns. I thought the jist of what Lorelai said was that she did not want Rory to miss out on things because of being afraid. Rory wanted to go to the dance but was reluctant to admit it, perhaps was not sure on how to go about it, with the clothes and how to ask Dean. Maybe she thought she was not supposed to want to go, because that's not her regular hang-out. But from the moment she blurted out about not having a dress, it showed her interest in going. At the end of the conversation when she said "You won't think i'm an idiot?" it sounded like she was looking for validation from Lorelai, that going to the dance - wanting to go - was ok.

Yeah, I think so too. I loved the way Lorelai assured Rory right up front that her serious mind and tendency not to join was something she loved about her. Of course, it makes a lot more sense in the next epi when we see how emotionally bonded to Richard Lorelai is. Seriously, for the first few epis, you have to wonder whether Lorelai and Rory would have gotten along as well had they been sisters!

Dean: You don't want to fight me, Tristan.
Tristan: Why not?
Dean: 'Cause I'll kill you, idiot!

Ooh, fiesty. Wink

no, i agree. When i first heard the title of this episode i'm like--wait, what? this doesn't make sense. But i guess there's just a klunker of a title in every bunch. It was the first season i suppose.

Damn straight and it was very emotional as well.  I don't think it was Rory's fault.  It was an accident and not surprisingly, Emily overreacted to how Lorelai handled things and Lorelai ended up attacking Rory over what happened. 

I don't like Dristin... I don't care how pretty he is.  Dean could kill him.  Jess and Logan pretty much beat the crap out of him in a second.  Plus, what idiot would dump a gorgeous gal like Sophia Bush over... a night with Paris Hilton? 

Paris, bringing her cousin as her date, embarrassing.  Yet, Rory bringing Dean to the party... she wins cool points with the school's coolest gals... Madeline and Louise.

Seriously, why they didn't create an alternate spin-off for those 2 girls?  Or better yet, their own version of Guildenstern & Rosencratz are Dead where we see episodes of Gilmore Girls from their perspective.  I would like to date both of them.

I actually really liked this episode (since I like early Rory/Dean).

The pair were so cute together throughout the entire episode and when Louise was trying to hit on Dean, him putting his arms around Rory is priceless.  Tristan also irks me.  He's like some spoilt brat who Daddy pampers to.  As someone else mentioned, any one of Rory's boyfriends would beat the living crap out of Tristan.  I feel sorry for Rory and Dean staying out all night.  It was a complete accident, but still.

I did like the whole Lorelai/Emily subplot.  Emily was taking care of her like a mother and when Lorelai (drowsy) said "Thank you mummy", I smiled.  It was something a child would say.

But next morning, I can actually understand Lorelai's reaction.  The sheer terror of a child not being there when you wake up would be horrible.  But then for Emily to keep bringing her down, I loved Lorelai's speech in the end.  Score!

I thought this episode was great! I loved it when dean and Tristin got in a fight.  It showed that Dean cared. I thought it was a cute moment when Emily tucked Lorelai in.
I loved the song that Rory and Dean dance to. Over all it was a great show.

I had re-watched this episode on tv episodes online. I enjoyed it.

Dristan!!!


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!

Wished Jared would've punched Chan Michael MORON in the face just once.

Just when I was ready to give Emily some slack, she's back to being MOMMIE DEAREST again.

I have to agree with you on the Emily situation.  She did start to actually be nice to Lorelai and they were actually having fun together and then she ruined it, AGAIN.  I liked the bit with the mashed banana on toast thing.  It is actually good.  My mom did used to make it for me when I was sick.  Sometimes she would layer peanut butter and then the banana on the toast. 

I always wonder why Emily says that she will be at the house at 7pm so that she can take pictures when the dance started at 7pm and they had a half hour drive to get there. 

I am glad that Dean didn't punch Tristan.  It makes him a bigger person.   Doesn't Chilton ever have chaperones at anything?  There sure weren't any at that dance.
