Such an amazing episode. It keeps getting better and better!!!

Classic Luke and Lorelai are back!!! I missed the ranting and the bantering!!! And classic Luke is back doing favors for Lorelai. It's great that they went from the awkwardness to the diner and car shopping to "friends". I put friends in quotes cause they do still have some ways to go. I loved when Lorelai was smiling and Luke was like why are you smiling and Lorelai said you must have low blood sugar. They know each other so well and it's great to see that's still there.

Great for Paris getting accepted to everywhere! I loved her bitterness at Harvard for her rejection 4 years ago. Amazing Paris scenes tonight!

It was nice to see Rory get rejected for something. It's gonna be nice to see her get back on her feet and recover from this and find a job. And I felt sorry for her when Paris was talking about it was hard to make a decision and not think of Doyle. It definitely got Rory thinking but I don't know why cause she had that conversation with Logan last week.


I read something interesting on Television Without Pity (TWoP)...and it's not a spoiler so don't worry!

Here's the link to the episode discussion thread.

"...and on a side note, did anybody else notice the CONSTANT Wizard of Oz references?

Bike (wicked witch's bike)
Basket (basket with toto)
Lorelai's sleeves (dorothy's sleeves)
Glenda (apt. name; good witch)
"wizard" (guy who's gonna fix the dollhouse)
broken dollhouse (house falling on wicked witch)

Were there others? Was it intentional? Were they trying to subliminally send the ruby slipper "no place like home" message? As in feeling at home with Luke?"



Such a great observation by this person!

I agree.  Rory really hasn't ever gotten rejected.  She got into Harvard, Princeton, and Yale.  I know so many people who would kill for just one of those colleges.  She faced rejection with Mitchum, but still, she hasn't every truly had her dream rejected, like, say, Paris and Harvard four years ago.  I don't think the paper she was working on with Mitchum was her true dream.  But I still can't help feeling bad.

That is a great observation!  I would've never noticed it had that person (and you) pointed it out.  Did we ever find out why they named their apartment Glenda?  I was kind of preoccupied when they were in the bar, but was it mentioned?  Lucy said she would tell her later, but did she?

You know when she was in the kitchen talking to Michelle I thought for a second about Wizard of Oz because she kind of looked like Dorothy right there but I didn't pick up on the other things... nice catch! Blow Kiss

Kinda off topic here but did anyone else notice the weird coffee cup that Luke served Lorelai her coffee in?  It had red flowers on it, I have never seen it before.  I was expecting the "old"cup he always served her coffee in!!

This episode was slow to get started, but once it did.... Grin

Favorite moment:
Lorelai: I don't want a bell, I want a horn!
Luke: Fine, I'll put a horn on it, happy?
Lorelai *big, big, big smile*: Yes

*Minus the phonecall, I thought Lauren was amazing in this episode. All of her expressions were perfect and completely conveyed her feelings about getting the Luke she knows back. I also realized how much I have missed Luke too, especially ranting!Luke.

*I'm not surprised Rory didn't get the Fellowship, but I feel for her. I can totally identify with being rejected when all your friends are being accepted.

*I'm kind of indifferent to the Rory/Logan relationship, but I think I will be sad if things go south for them.

*I loved Luke's solution for Lorelai's jeep troubles. So cute how he went through all that trouble for her so she could keep the jeep.  Hearts

*I agree with those saying this episode reminded them of season 4. It felt very much like the lead-up and beginning of Luke and Lorelai's relationship.

 Hearts Hearts Hearts Hearts The end of the episode made me giddy (until the promo), and I can't wait to see the next three episodes!!!

I thought this was the best episode of the season. The Luke and Lorelai moments were great, when they were kind of bickering at the dealership was so funny, they were really just proving how well they know each other. I didn't know Luke gets low blood sugar, awww Wink Lorelai's little grin when she realized they were 'back' was priceless.

I was very happy for Paris... that whole story line was very fulfilling for me; especially the part at the end where Rory doesn't get the fellowship. It's ok though.

Welcome back, Jackson's Wrestling Pics PJs!!! those things crack me up...

The last L/L scene was great too, albeit over the top; I find all that about the motor a bit ridiculous, but it was soooo cute that he went to that trouble, and he cares! So old school Luke Grin I loved when she yelled, "I wanna horn!"

(I'm also considering being a Spree. I overdosed on Spoilers two weeks ago, and got quite ill. I got kinda high on them at first knowing everything that's gonna happen, but they are very misleading, like saying that Jackson stays with Lorelai because he and Sookie have a fight- thats not what happened at all- blah, not to mention the other discrepencies- I don't know if its worth it...)

I noticed that and that was something I forgot to comment on...I was like, where are the big solid-colored cups?  It was strange.

It's the discussion aspect that leads to the most discrepancies.  People find out the spoilers and speculate.  And, speculations can be right or way off base.  If you want to read spoilers and can keep from speculating yourself, it's best to stick to the no discussion thread and just get straight spoilers, no embellishments.  (Although even the spoilers themselves aren't always 100% accurate).  I also think people tend to go for the worst possible outcome when predicting.  So, Jackson staying at Lorelai's?  People would immediately jump to him and Sookie having a fight.

And, I'm so glad that he called Sookie on being mad at him.  I mean, she has a right to be, but it was good to see him face the problem head on and make her get it out in the open.
