Alright, I have a question about this episode. I've watched it about 20 times before but this never occurred to me. Maybe I'm missing something.
I thought they paid Emily and Richard back with all of the $75,000. Lorelai even said to the Financial Aid office that they didn't have that money anymore.
Yet in this episode, Rory and Lorelai are constantly debating what to do with "grandpa's money" -- buy the Dragonfly or put it towards Yale. So how did they
get the money back? Did Emily and Richard refuse it? Was Chilton less than $75,000? If so, Lorelai lied to Financial Aid when she said they didn't have any of
it. I was just confused by this.
I always thought Richard & Emily refused the money. After all, the deal was they'd pay for Chilton and Lorelai & Rory would come for FND. I know Lorelai always said she was gonna pay them back, but they might've refused the money.
