OMG YES!!! i also noticed the cups...since when is Luke into prints?!!!

i love the metaphor of riding the bike...it was taken literally, as is expected from GG, but it was used nicely!!!

i really think that L/L are on the right track...again, i hope they'll last forever!!!

I honestly can't feel bad that Rory didn't get the Reston.  Probably because I knew ahead of time that she wouldn't.  And, there are other options available.  Which I can't elaborate on as they're spoilers.

Just noticed something.  Logan doesn't have a car.  Rory dropped him off at the airport.  And, I don't think they said what kind of meeting he was going to.

OK this got long - sorry.  Embarrassed
Seems like everyone liked the eppy better than i did EXCEPT as i said, it really picked up for me in the last ten or fifteen minutes and i liked that part.  Kiss  Re: The broken doll house. Cry  I am not sure bout that one, unless it was mostly a Wizard moment.  If that happened to me it would mean that i have to let go of sentiment, because time marches on - i had a very sentimental thing that someone broke like that - and then, i took it to this other person to fix, but instead the slob stole it from me! I am still heartbroken over this. I just want it back - even broken.  Doesn't matter - i just want it.  My brother and i built it - it is a model Jaguar XKE.  I still cry about it.

I was unhappy about the broken dollhouse, unless they are able to fully restore it.  The moment when Jackson said, "this is not about the dollhouse" was just way too Uncle Phil for me. I started to get hives.  Someone commented that it was a metaphor for Luke - i hope not - because that would be pathetic for Lorelai to say her life is a PILE without Luke.  I don't like that sentiment. But that is an old axe of mine.  Angry

Interesting about the Wizard of Oz moments, yes - i mean Glenda, that has to be intentional, right?  I have to say this, even though i will get trashed for it maybe.  I am having a problem with everything supposedly revolving around "getting back together with Luke" so that the world will be in its proper orbit again.  Maybe this is a young perspective or something, because as an older person, i feel that life is not made that much better with a partner - the old problems are still there, and i think for Lorelai that is about Emily and about letting go of Rory. Life is less lonely, and yeah, you look forward to the weekends and it is fun to buy lingerie, but partners don't solve your problems (unless they are plumbers).

I am more interested in what Lorelai is learning about herself, as she is ALONE. I mean, she is just broken up with Chris, and now she is smiling about Luke - well, that seals it - the Chris thing was just one big brainfart.  Tongue

Don't get me wrong, i welcome the return of L/L. But as i read these posts - i see this same theme throughout them.  Gilmore Girls is about a lot more than L/L - to me. Esp. since all the trouble happened.  All that weirdness reminded me of my own life - and for me, it was not so easy to just jump right back where things were - in fact, i was not able to do it.  I lost the guy i really wanted - the time space continuum would only hold open for so long - then it snapped shut.  As for the fight at the car dealership - it was NOT like old times - there was definitely more anger - more distance - it was not so laced with love as before, and i am not sure if that was intentional or just rusty on the actor's part (Scott). Did anyone else notice that?  In fact, all of his quips were nastier than the usual "i am so amused by you" they were more like "you irritate me" - and i was wondering if anyone else thought that too and if this was an attempt to ease back into the relationship. Not sure.

Oh - and then Lorelai said, "I knew he was mad, and so he finally picked a fight (whatever)" - RIGHT! Exactly, except - nothing came out about the past hurt - it was just about her being indecisive and expecting to find the same Jeep (insert symbolism here) and nothing was said about their breakup - so was the smile pre-mature? LIke "Ok, all is forgotten, all is well, back to normal" - we shall see in the future. HEY - how many eppy's left anyway?

I saw more in the posts i wanted to respond to, but... for now... Thanks.  Smiley

REGARDING WIZARD OF OZ.  I mean, as a writer, if i became aware of the image of her on a bicycle, i would go back and insert all sorts of WOZ stuff in there - you know how it is, you get a hold of one image and it makes a theme and you figure - why not - go for it! It could have been strickly for humor and if symbolism happens - fine. Let's face it, there is not a theme in existence that cannot be explained by the Wizard of Oz! It is the universal metaphor, my pretty! And yer little dog too!

Lorelai: Please Luke, please please please.
Luke: How many cups have you had this morning?
Lorelai: None.
Luke: Plus--
Lorelai: Five.  But yours is better.

I don't like the sentiment either.  But I also don't want her dollhouse to be a metaphor for Luke because it's connected with her childhood and her parents and that was part of Lorelai's history before Luke and should be a story in its own right.  I really hope all roads in Lorelai's life don't lead to Luke.  Especially at the expense of her family dynamics.

 Grin i agree about the dollhouse...

it can't be too metaphorical because Luke is not just her past, he is her present also and he is not just going to go away.
even with all the wierdness they will always have that bond. nothing can get rid of that

It's fun to be surprised. Reading foilers is even better than living spree, because I think I know what's going on when I don't. And they're always sort of right if you stand back and squint a little.  Cheesy

How could Rory have possibly gotten the Reston Fellowship after all that "on this day four years ago" and "factor each other in" crap? I see what she meant about knowing what she wanted being scarier than having options. But now she actually has to put her factoring where her mouth is, and if the San Francisco thing turns out well, that's something to factor. After all, she presumably has a lot more options than Logan right now.

I'm not sure I get the meaning behind all the Wizard clues. I caught a few of' them, but I couldn't find a thread that makes sense of them.

It's funny how Lorelai's car was broken but they were able to get it back, and the dollhouse was broken, but they knew the "wizard" could fix it, and Paris and Doyle broke up and made up, and even Sookie and Jackson's trust was broken but they will get it back. It kind of makes everything within Lorelai's sphere seem indestructible.

Am I the only one who noticed the awesome green phone in the kitchen at the Inn? Sookie was talking on it to Jackson. Gorgeous!

I certainly enjoyed the episode for all it's worth.  I can't believe that Rory didn't get the fellowship, that honestly blindsided me.  But hey, that just means there is something else around the corner huh?  I loved the Luke/Lorelai and Sookie/Jackson moments!  Those couples are my favorite.  I just loved having ranting Luke back, and all the trouble he went to to make sure Lorelai still has her jeep...it's just adorable.  I can't wait to watch it again...

LUKE: You knew what I was doing!
LORELAI: Well, no, not officially.
LUKE: Not officially? Oh, come on. I mean, I didn't have a ref present, but other than that.
LORELAI: Well, you didn't say anything official.

I'm honestly kinda glad that Rory didn't get the fellowship.  I mean, it would have been so cliche for everything to go right in her life like that (it's not reality).  Dani, you can finally say that Paris one upped Rory in this episode.  She's got her choice of schools and has a stable relationship.

i agree in that you say Paris "upped one" to Rory...she has been working hard to get her share of attention and she's finally got it!!!

rory will surely get something better as she always has something to offer...it seems she will have plenty of opportunities to live large!!!

Yes, it's not a valedictorianship, but it still feels good for my underdog rooting.

*Maybe less interesting than I find it, but my spell check suggests valedictorian ship or valedictorians hip as alternative spellings for my made up word.

I felt bad for Rory but I am kinda glad she didn't get it either.   I know there is better things out there for her, and entering the real word is a challenge.  Dream jobs are hard to come by this days.  It takes time and experience to get that job you want.  I read spoilers so I knew she wasn't getting the fellowship, and even if I didn't know, after watching Paris get accepted to every school from California to the east coast someone needed to get rejected this episode  Undecided
