Title: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: TheHumanCoffeePot on October 16, 2005, 11:55:58 am
Summary:The storybook Connecticut town of Stars Hollow is home to 32-year-old Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her 16-year-old daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel). Rory and her best friend Lane Kim (Keiko Agena) are straight 'A' students at the local public high school, but when Rory is accepted into the prestigious Chilton Prep in nearby Hartford, the steep tuition forces Lorelai to try to mend the long-standing rift with her wealthy parents Richard (Edward Herrmann) and Emily (Kelly Bishop) and ask for financial help.

Hey!
This is a great ep, amazing, the opening scene gives you a cool input, how lorelai offers coffee and luke reacts the way he did and then when this young guy tries to date lorelai and then rory and rory goes like: Are you my new daddy?
and i love the song played when lore realizes she will have to go ask her parents for money, a amazing ep! ;D

I love this episode. Except... do the different sets bother anyone else? They always irk me. I guess I'm not very flexible, and perhaps too obsessed, but that always gets me.

I love the "lipgloss" conversation. I think of it every time I put makeup on.

Lorelai's house is too "showroom like" in the pilot and Stars Hollow looks completely different.

All of the summaries are credit TheWB, however, TheHumanCoffee pot does deserve props for taking the time to set up each thread and include the summary to refresh everyone's memory. ;)

You're not the only one, the different sets bother me, too. Luke's diner looks like it's a completely different house (the entrance is in the middle of the front, not the corner entrance like in later episodes), the town looks different and I don't like the living-room in Lorelai's house in the pilot. I'm glad they decided to change it.

The whole coffee convo with L/L was funny then with the crack about the lip gloss and that guy bothering them.lol

That was cute when Rory had told Luke that it was to late,she was like her mother...so sweet!

I love the song they first play as Lorelai is walking towards Luke's diner as well. I just bought the season 1 DVDs Wednesday night, so I've been watching season 1 all over again. The first episode was great. I love the ending in Luke's diner. "Behold the powers of a bath!"

I actually didn't see the beginning of this one as a rerun when I wanted to ... I though that the rerun was going to be the 5th season finale, and it was actually the pilot. I loved what I saw, but I missed the first ten minutes. The sets didn't really bother me, but next time I see it, they ptobably will.

I absolutly love this episode! You can tell from the first minute that it is gonna be a good series. My friends always laugh when they see the part about the lipgloss because it is exactly like me having every flavor of lipgloss.

haha, the change of sets r so funny. cause luke's diner is like completely different.

bit off topic sorry but did u notice how in the 1st couple of episodes in their house the (now) cupboard used 2 b a bathroom. remember?? cause then later on in the series when rory makes a dean box and loralei chucks it in the cupboard.. that used 2 b a bathroom i swear!  ???

i luv GG!!!

Yeah,the cupboard use to be a bathroom.

Cause in the episode,I don't remember the name,where Lorelai invites Dean over for the first time and they watch Willi Wonka.Rory was gonna wash her face so she went into the cupboard...So yeah I think it used to be a bathroom....

Post by: Lapis Lazuli on February 06, 2006, 10:11:27 pm
It's funny. On W network here in Canada they just finished showing the finale of season 5, and I was thinking to myself, after reading some of the comments here about different sets "wouldn't it be cool if they showed the pilot again". Well today they did, but I missed the first few minutes (but I caught it later)... what a great episode. It's funny to know the little differences they later refine or change (like Emily answering the door).

I didn't realize that Dean was introduced so soon. And her refusal to go to Chilton was because of him (echoed later in the series). I love the way Rory looks in this episode. Her hair is straight, and I think that suits her. Beautiful.

(I hope they show the episodes in order from here on!  :D )

This was a great pilot episode! It wasn´t the first one I saw... but if I had been the potential producer, I´d had put all my hope in this show!
Lapis Lazuli, I hope the episodes are shown in order. to check that out, you have the episode guide. It is really helpful sometimes!
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: Lapis Lazuli on February 07, 2006, 12:30:13 pm
The episode guide is really helpful, but only if you read the summaries, because they don't show the titles on TV. Which makes it hard to find out which episodes you've missed.

For example I didn't know until I started watching this one the first time that it was also the pilot. Another thing I noticed was that Sookie was a real klutz in this episode.

I have to admit that watching it after you know the characters it doesn't quiet hold my interest as much as it did the very first time i watched it. although i must admit i think it was a goo start to the show, I kind of think now they might have been able to do more with it.

I'm pretty sure the channel has been showing them in order, no?

The episode guide is really helpful, but only if you read the summaries, because they don't show the titles on TV. Which makes it hard to find out which episodes you've missed.

Anyway, you can look at their schedule with the Episode names on the website. Here is a direct link to the page you probably want: http://www.wnetwork.com/tv_shows/shows/gilmore_girls/index.asp?tz=3&DirectID=1&date=02/08/2006&displayMode=desc
Hope that helps.

Hmm, I noticed they got rid of the showing of an episode at 5pm on Fridays. The change slows down the series by 1 episode a week, but it's a good change for me since I'm rarely home around that time. Time to watch the whole series again! =)

This was so cool.  I remmber seeing an ad for Gilmore Girls and thinking it looked interesting.  But I had to tape it cause here in New Zealand they put it on at 2.30pm weekdays the first series.   :'( :'(.  So I had to tape it, untill the got complaints and in the secound season moved it to a better day and time.  Anyway I so love this what a wonderful introduction.  I love the comment Rory makes when she gets her skirt for chilton and says "I'm going to be in a Britney Spears Video".  Classic Gilmore girls. 
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: GGsCoffeeCup on February 13, 2006, 11:25:52 am
Along the lines of the different sets...the only part that really bothered me is when they changed the entrance to Lukes.  It threw me for a loop.  I've been watching since day 1 and I remember loving all the hardware supplies in the wall shelves.  I watched this episode again this season and couldn't help feeling nostalgic for it.

I also miss how clumsy Sookie used to be.  Of course, it's probably better that she's not now...what with a baby and all.

I really liked this episode, I saw it for the first time on the DVD when it came out and really loved it. (Already loved the show thus why I bought the DVD). But yes I think it was an excellent first episode for the show. Also, if someone wants the song they played before Lorelai went to see Richard and Emily (Where the Colours Don't Go-Sam Phillips) I can e-mail it to you ^^
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: gilmore_guy on February 22, 2006, 07:46:02 pm
in my opinion absolutely the best episode. the whole episode is basically like a summary of the entire series plot, so any of you newcomers to the show should definitly watch that episode first, cuz it'll be a life-saver. and its just presented to you in such a neat package like the way they introduce the characters, how they give a background story about Lor & Rory, and how if you notice when the scenes in Stars Hollow are on the colors are brighter and the camera moves more fluidly and the scenes at Emily & Richards house the colors are more stale black and gray and the camera seems not to move an inch, the characters are ususally in one spot. as to give an effect that the girls life in SH is free and full of life and in hartford Lorelai seems to always be under the strict rule of her parents as if she was still living with them.

I just watched this epsoide again today.  Everyone looks so different now.  In a way it is kind of strange to look back.  But it's nice to see how it all began.  I really love when Rory first meets Dean you could tell it was really the beginning of something great.  You can also tell right away the connections they all have with each other.  Overall an amazing pilot epsoide.

Yeah! The beginning of my beloved all-time-favorite tv show - Gilmore Girls! Ahhhh----the memories..... Anyway! Did anyone notice that when this episode airs on ABC Family they take out the part where Lorelai says "You're gonna have to turn into freakin' FloJo to get away from me?" I guess they consider it a "bad" word or whatever. But when it aired on the WB they kept it in. Interesting?
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: Faith on March 17, 2006, 03:04:28 pm
I didn't notice that before. Next time it's on, I'll look for it. I enjoyed this episode. It was the first one I ever watched. I like the beginning where the guy, I wanna say his name is Joey, hits on Lorelai and then hits on Rory soon after. Oh, that's good times!!

Also, Sookie....her and her clumsy-ness....However, she did perfect her recipe, so mad props to her!
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: MissV327 on March 17, 2006, 08:23:20 pm

Post by: jinglesosborne on April 11, 2006, 04:44:10 pm
This is definitely a must see for any Gilmore Girl virgin.  It's the backstory to the series, plus, we get to see the characters at their best.  Hindsight is 20/20, but you can see so many things being set up here, including the L/L romance.  The contrast between the two worlds -- the idyll of Stars Hollow and the Old Money world of Richard and Emily -- shows us there are going to be great conflicts as the result.  Ironically, here Rory takes the first steps into leaving her happy world and working her way into the upper class world of Chilton and the Ivy League.

I would love to see the original pilot with Alex Borstein as Sookie, and the other changes they made.  I adore Sookie/Melissa but the original would be great just for kitsch value.

Ah, yes, the Pilot. I actually watched this episode today. It does bug me a little about the sets being so different. Didn't they shoot the first episode somewhere in Canada? Anyway, I've seen this one so many times that I can now basically recite it from memory. It's so funny how much everyone has changed. I mean, Alexis looks so young compared to now. I think she was 18 when they started filming and now she's how old? 24? Wow, how fast time has gone by. I'm going to cry after the series ends. :'( It just makes me so sad to think that next year will prolly be the last. Well, at least we'll have the memories- and all of the seasons on dvd!

At last my Season One DVD arrived! I had most of these on tape and had postponed the DVD purchase, though I had never seen the pilot all the way through. Finally this week, I was able to see the inaugral steps of a now favorite program.
Noticeably different is the pace; the verbal pace foremost is not so screwball-comedy-rapid-banter, which is, of course, to be expected and actually quite fortunate (it would have seemed forced, I think.)
The characters, of course, are not all what they would become, but still so many are well-defined from the start. Lorelai in particular, and the simple chemistry with Luke, they won me over so quickly. Emily, Richard, they know exactly what they're doing and we know they will only get better. So often in other series, characters become more exaggerated and cliche, here we see that some grow more human and less cartoonish in time. Sookie's extreme clumsiness as displayed here would have worn thin, though she still has just enough incidents and band-aids to keep the characteristic throughout the show.
Somehow, much conflict and intricacy is laid on the table without any jarring intensity, stories that play out over years are planted here. I can't wait to watch it again.

Yep. Even though I discovered Gilmore Girls in season 5, the first time I saw the pilot I just smiled. It was evident from their first scene together that there was something definitely going on with these two. If I'd watched this show in real time, I'd have gone nuts waiting for them to get together.

I just watched it again and loved it, Alexis looks so young and innocent it is unbelievable, the first scenes of her and Jared Padalecki together are amazing to watch and I loved the way Luke eyed Lorelai up and down when she turned away from him in the opening scene, priceless..

Her name is Yo La Tango, and here are the lyrics:

Come along with me to my little corner of the world
Dream a little dream in my little corner of the world
You'll soon forget that there's any other place
Tonight, my love, we'll share a sweet embrace

And if you care to stay in my little corner of the world
We could hide away in my little corner of the world
I always knew that I'd find someone like you
So welcome to my little corner of the world

And if you care to stay in our little corner of the world
We could hide away in our little corner of the world
We always knew that we'd find someone like you
So welcome to our little corner of the world


Hope that helps. :) Kristen

I was just thinking about how even as early as the first episode we saw how despite how smart Rory is, once she decides something, no matter how stupid it is, she becomes a brat if someone else disagrees. For example, the whole Chilton thing? I like that the show doesn't portray Rory as perfect just because she's smart and generally well behaved--It makes the show more believable.

True.  Rory was portrayed as studious, and nice, but never perfect.  So, I've never understood it when people say that they needed to show she wasn't perfect.  I always thought that's what they had been doing all along.

No, Rory was 16 when the show started, now she's about 23 I'd say. 22 or 23. yep..... :):)
The person you are answering above was talking about Alexis.  Alexis was 18/19 when she started the show.  And she is 24 now.

As a big fan of Lauren Graham, and a big fan of her legs in particular, I LOVE how much her legs are on display in this episode.  Needless to say, I have the DVD, and I love it.
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: lessa on June 11, 2006, 10:33:04 am
Yeah. You can't get legs like that by exercising them .That makes your thighs to big. I wonder if Lauren Graham is as unathletic as Lorelai claimed to be.
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: Merovia on June 12, 2006, 01:50:20 am
I somehow doubt it... Otherwise that would really be a cause for envy.

And I must admit that Lauren or Lorelais leg didn't have anything to do with me being hooked on this show.

I guess I have the wrong chromosome setting for that ;)

I just re-watched the pilot again, and it is quite funny to see it again... knowing everything that will happen down the line...

Also it is quite funny to watch how the "settings has changed", something with the windows in lukes diner, the way the hardware sign is displayed, and also I think the entrance to richard and emilys house will change...

But it was nice to feel the caught on-sense of the show was there again... being hooked all over again ;)

The parents' house entrance changes like 3 or 4 times. It is fun to watch them change! Also, they moved the place where they drink to a different room. In the first season, There is a wall and a bunch of windows. But now, it is next to the staircase. ;)

Maybe it is the crispy newness of the show in those early days??

Everything was brand new and we had all those expectations for story lines... also Lorelai and Luke had some really sweet moments back then... Not that they don't later... but it is still the expectations ;)

I have also being re-watching the earlier seasons and find it an amazing experience to view it with the knowledge of later eps.  It give it a whole new perspective, and really helps to understand how much of a genius ASP and co really are!  The continuity very rarely breaks yet her ability to carry on a thought over the seasons is just a wonderful thing to witness :)

In the first episode or two Sean Gunn was called Mick, so I would say it probably took a while before they decided to add Kirk as a regular character and it was obviously an on-going joke that he would have a strange new job in every episode.

But what i mean is u no the last scene after friday night dinner at luke's where lorelai asks rory about dean and rory won't tell her? well i noticed that they played a few seconds of that scene when ur supposed 2 see rory and lorelai at luke' s after rory meets dean( the scene in which lorelai tells rory they r going 2 her parents house 4 dinner). Is that explaination better? It is probably still kind of confusing, but when u watch the epi u will see what i mean. ;)

i get what you mean, gilmoregroupie. that's interesting, i didn't notice that. i think it's funny how the guy hit on both of them in the beggining and rory was like "are you my new daddy?" i just got the season 1 dvd and i'm so excited to see the begining again. it seems michel was still the same as he is now "what is your offspring doing?" lol and i like rory's reaction to the plaid chilton skirt "... i'm... going to to be in a Britney Spears video?" ah, the begining...

Does anyone remember the monologue that lorelai said over the first season repeats shown on the WB a few years ago,  I tried to find a copy on the show with the speech on it but couldn't find it anywhere  :-[ :(

Post by: Stars-n-Moons on July 15, 2006, 07:25:51 am
This is an amazing eppy!  I love the begining song and the converstation that Rory and Lorelai have in Luke's.  The different sets really bother me thought.  I know that the Pilot wasn't filmed in the WB lot, it was filmed on location.  I loved how Richard and Emily are introduced and betrayed in this eppy, I think that they did an amazing job.  Actually, the wal all of the characters, Lane, Mrs. Kim, Luke, Dean, and Miss Patty, are introduced.  It really ties it all together :)

There is major blooper that i noticed (I think that it is the same one that gilmoregroupie noticed).   It is in the scence when Lorelai and Rory are at Lukes and Rory tells Lorelai that she doesn't want to go to Chilton>  There is first a shot outside the Diner and Rory is wearing a blue sweater and Lorelai is wearing a black coat (the same ones they wore to Friday Night Dinner), but then once the camera shot is in Lukes, Rory is wearing a black sweater and Lorelai is wearing a purple one (like they were wearing earlier that day).  Weird! 

But all in all this is such a funny eppy.  The olny thing that I would have liked to see would have been a town meeting to introduce Taylor Dooese, but hey, its only a 42 minute show!

I love the beginning episode to the GG. I really love the opening shot becuase it really gave me a heads-up that something was gonna be up between LL and Luke - maybe not that season but something would happen. I also love it when LL was hit on by a guy and she turned him down, then the guy hit on Rory, The guy suggested that he had a friend then this made me hooked into the show instantly due to humor:

"Are you going to be my new daddy?"

I was looking through the website I use for Gilmore Girls screencaps, and I noticed they had the pictures from the original Gilmore Girls pilot that never aired, since they tweaked the cast. A lot of the scenes were the same, with a few exceptions:


(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v283/flex151/Randomness/Unairedpilot8.jpg)

The original "Sookie", Alex Borstein, who ended up playing the mean harp player, Drella, because MadTV wouldn't let her out of her contract. (she plays Mrs. Swan on that show, among other memorable characters. "He look-a like a man!"  ;D)

The original Kim's Antique sign.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v283/flex151/Randomness/Unairedpilot2.jpg)

The original Dean, who they ended up not using because they thought he looked creepy. And he does! Thank god for good judgement on their part  ;D.

Search for "Where The Color's Don't Go" by Sam Phillips :cd:. Other songs of hers you might like that have been on the show:

How To Dream

Love Is Everywhere I Go

Reflecting Light

If I Could Write

I highly recommend A Boot and A Shoe, that album has "Reflecting Light" and "If I Could Write" on it, along with several other really great songs.

Wow. I love watching this episode in re-runs; I've got admit, I love finding those little (sometimes not so little) details that differ from the rest of the season.

Emily's hair --- Wow, big change. And definitely a good one.

Lorelai's "look" --- Also good (it also changed partly because she and Rory grew up).


I can't think of any others at the moment...

Oh my goodness! You're right! I just compared the photo of the bridal store and the screen cap of Luke's . . . definately the same place.

I LOVE the pilot episode. It's amazing to see how well ASP captured in just one episode everything that would eventually play out for seasons and seasons.

Also, my little Gilmore Girls story is that I watched the pilot when it very first premiered back in 2000. I was in the kitchen getting some popcorn or something and Drew Carey was just finishing on the WB (we used to have repeats of Drew Carey at 7PM and 7.30PM) and the WB announcer guy came on and said something about a new show premiering or something, and Gilmore Girls came on. I was still in the kitchen, but I could hear it and I could hear how well-written and witty the dialogue was, so I sat down with my popcorn and I've been hooked since, seven years later. Crrrrrrrrazy!

I wish I could have been hooked the first moment it aired! I'll admit, I haven't been a Gilmore Girls fan long...I think I first saw the show only about a year ago, reruns on ABC Family. I think I started watching somewhere in the third season...but then at the end of the fifth seaon it would relay back to the first. I'm just now watching the sixth season, haha. I've been sorta behind. But gosh ever since I saw it I loved it! I finally saw the pilot about five months ago. It was just great.

I didn't see the /very/ beginning of the first episode until a few days ago, and I must say, great.





Does anyone know if, like other television shows, the first episode of GG was made, then sold to the network, and then they made more? Or was it the other way, where the pilot's script is bought, and the show starts making a bunch of shows right away (I explained that horribly, but I hope you know what I mean..)?

The pilot was made and then after it screened and was succesful the network continued it for a whole season etc.. So in a way the pilot is like a test to see if its worth making the show and see what ratings they get.  Hope that makes sense LOL

The premiere is one of my favorite episodes. I love seeing how everyone on the show has changed, even in appearance.
It's a really good introduction to the show, and it naturally stuffs everything in. Lorelai and Christopher, how Rory is just sixteen years younger than Lorelai, Lorelai leaving her family, introduces the people who work at the inn, Rory's best friend... it's all in the same episode. Oh, and plus, it shows Lorelai and Rory's huge obsession in coffee.
Ah, the good old days of decent Gilmore Girls.

Ahhhh, the first eposide to the show that has be so wrapped up in it! A town that I wish to live in, people I wish to meet and know, a world that I get lost in so very often! (Alright, please don't think I'm psycho!  :))

I can't watch this epsidoe enough (that goes for any epsidoe really) and come back to it every so often. It refreshes me!
I really love coming back and watching the first season, it reminds me where they came from!
How tihngs were in a more simple time...and I just love younger Rory!!

I think it's about time to pull this one back out of the box and watch it again!!

Hey!
This is a great ep, amazing, the opening scene gives you a cool input, how lorelai offers coffee and luke reacts the way he did and then when this young guy tries to date lorelai and then rory and rory goes like: Are you my new daddy?
and i love the song played when lore realizes she will have to go ask her parents for money, a amazing ep! ;D

I am re-watching the pilot now, i love it so much.  The sets?  No, i am not bothered - that's show biz.  And i LOVE THAT SONG, i am not sure i have found it yet - i will hve to find database of the songs and track it down.

ONE THING: It always bothered me that she says, "I think i put my contacts in backwards" and then in other scenes thru the series we see glasses on her, but then when Rachel asks her "Do you wear contacts" she says, "Nope, they are original" or whatever - that her eyes are that blue naturally.  Does this bother anyone else. I am not balmy, right? She has had glasses on?  Does Lauren Graham wear contacts? (a lot of people get Lasiks)  Another Q - was it Lorelai Gilmore and then they found Lauren Graham (sort of late, right?) and it just happened to be LG - LG, or did the name get changed,   :)  just curious.

THANKS. What's the name of the song?

Hey french1016 - we both like the opener.

Man, I know! That bothers the hell outta me. And yes, she definitely wears glasses in later season - especially Season 5. Luke even says "I just came by to drop off your glasses. You left 'em at my apartment - I thought you might need them." (Or something to that extent)

Perhaps they're just 'fashion' glasses, but why would Luke say "I thought you might need them."

And yes, I distinctly remember the line "Oh, I think I just put my contacts in backwards," Grr. I hate goofs like that.

But as for the LG LG, I think that's just a coincidence. CUte one, though.

Lindsay and Layla - thanks for the input.

Glad it is not just me who is bothered by the glasses thing; it seems beneath the intelligence of that show.  I mean, a jump-cut is one thing - you're gonna have jump-cuts, but logic breaks like "I put my contacts in backwards" and "NO, these are my real eyes!"  is another thing.  A show goes so long and you FORGET of course, but that would be the continuity person's job i guess.  The stuff i worked on was so small-scale, i cannot really speak to a bigger production like that, weather a continiuty person is responsible for the entire series or just  - show by show.   :-\

On the brighter side, no one lost a limb!  :)

I love Gilmore Girls!

I have to agree with you on that... But if you come in later in the season you dont realize you need to watch it until you do watch it,if that makes any sense... I actually started watching episodes about season 4 in the beginning and its only like 6 months later that i watched this episode.

I first got hooked on Gilmore Girls earlier this year.  I've purchased and watched, Season 1 through 3.  Can't wait for Luke and Lorelai to get together (beside the point).  But just wanted to mention that it's funny abou them changing "Mick" to "Kirk".  I remember when I watched the next few episodes in Season 1, I kept thinking are these all the same people?  Something was off, but I couldn't think what it was.  I should have just gone back and watched the pilot again, but I didn't.  Now I know what's different!  Poor Mick/Kirk no wonder he's such a mess; he has an identity crisis!  :D

Maybe because it matches with "jerk"? Because that's what Miss Patty says, at the wake for Cinnamon, after she had met him for the first time in the supermarket, where she was sampling fruits:


 (The grocery store employee from earlier approaches Miss Patty.)

EMPLOYEE: Excuse me, ma'am?

MISS PATTY: Well if it isn't Kirk the jerk.

EMPLOYEE: I want to apologize for what happened at the store yesterday.

MISS PATTY: I'm listening.

EMPLOYEE: I wasn't aware that you were THE Miss Patty. The owner tells me that you're one of our best customers and you can put anything into that mouth that you want to. Those were his words. I could have paraphrased them.

MISS PATTY: Stop sweating. And close your pores, Kirky, I always forgive.

EMPLOYEE: Thank you.

MISS PATTY: Once.

I love this episode...I mean, it brings me back centered to everything.  I loved the obvious attraction between Lorelai/Luke and it just keeps growing.  But I was showing this to my friend, who had never watched, and she goes "They're [Luke and Lorelai] dating."  I'm like "No, wait about 80+ episodes and then they do." 

Things were so different, but it's fun to watch for the old quirks of Gilmore Girls.  The only thing is, well, Rory's white sweater bothers me so much!   It's way too big.

That 'old' Dean was creepy, I'm glad we got Jared Padalecki.

ya its funny she always refers to her "parents" but you never meet her dad (they  probably did it that way on purpose) but in the episode where lane sneaks into her house and walks into her mom room and see's the girl she think is "taking her place" Mrs. Kim is sleeping in her bed alone. But that may just be because she thinks it's "wrong" to share a bed with a man.

I love this this episode how it introduces all the characters but my favourite adult character is Sookie but I like Rory the best I also like how she meets Dean in this episode. I also think that it was very brave of Lorelei to ask her parents of money. I also thought it was strange that Rory out though. The thing that I most about this episode that Rory didn't want to attend Chilton after she met Dean. It was totally not like her she usually has such good perspectives. School has to be the most important thing in a person's life, but this was Rory's first guy she liked, but that still doesn't give her no excuse.

I didnt know there was am unaired pilot! I'd never thought about it but I knew that Luke was originally a female role (if they'd stayed with that the show would have had waay too much oestrogen). Does anyone know if the original pilot is online somewhere?

This episode always freaks me out when I see the diner. I'm so glad they changed the set. I know it's supposed to be his dad's old hardware store but its just not diner - y enough. And it's so weird to remember how young they all were, and how much slower they talked at the beginning.

The unaired pilot (with Alex Bornstein as Sookie and some other guy as Dean and slightly different scenes and music) can be found online as a torrent . . . That's all I can say without getting in trouble. :/

As for Daisy (the original version of Luke in the original script) . . . the show would have been so interesting with her . . . But I think AS-P recycled her into Gypsy. I think ASP was intending Daisy to be very . . . is "dykey" acceptable here? Very NOT feminine and curmudgeoned. Maybe even a full-on vegetarian dyke (which would make Daisy's Diner hillarious!

Obviously this means that Lorelai was ment to end up with Christopher in the original formula for the show.

Unless Lorelai and Daisy . . . . hahaha!

You're so creepy. Gypsy isn't really unfeminine(?). She evens said she liked the color pink. I mean she isn't going to wear a skirt to fix people's cars now is she?

Post by: gilmoreguy78 on April 10, 2007, 08:35:09 pm
Um, thanks. :) I've never been called "creepy" before. I'll take it as a badge of honor. :D

But, yes, Gypsy is VERY unfeminine and obviously a lesbian. But that's not the point. The point is that I think that Gypsy is a recycled Daisy.

I never knew that. I'll keep that in mind.

so, they make Sookie really klutzy in the beginning then she becomes like all brilliant and perfect.

What's up with that?
Sookie is cool!
                                                               
Sookie.
                                                                                     
Sookie![/color]

Post by: katie_lou on April 13, 2007, 05:53:24 pm
The original Sookie was more of a caricature. They wanted to see how far they could push her character into the klutzy, bumbling but sweet best friend before she became irritating. It's not uncommon for characters to morph over the first few episodes until a balance is struck. Also making Sookie less bumbling allowed her character to become more 3 dimensional, just as Michel's insecurities were also revealed, Rory became less reclusive (and more fashionable - the moo - moo and the doc martins from the pilot  ???) etc etc
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: gilmoreguy78 on April 14, 2007, 02:50:32 pm
And what I like best about Sookie's "morph into normalcy" is that for quite a few seasons you can STILL spot several adhesive bandages on her fingers and whatnot, even though the klutzy mishaps are never referenced. That way we 1) don't have to deal with the repetitive and annoyance of the overly broad humor of her accidents and, 2) it's still keeping in character.

Brilliant!

Alex Bornstein's version of Sookie was peculiar. Her klutziness wasn't even humorous in the least. She played Sookie so serious and deadpan that it just didn't work for the style of the show. Thank GOD Melissa ended up playing her.

Not to say I don't love Alex, cause I do. Her Drella is F***ING HILLARIOUS! And her Miss Celine is quite hysterical! (Not to mention her Ms. Swan on MadTV and Lois on Family Guy). She is just not who I would have cast for Sookie. So despeite my ASP-love . . . thank goodness ASP didn't get her way with that one. Yikes!

Oh well the diff. sets are really kinda freaky but thats why the first episode was filmed in Canada and not on the WB set in Burbank.
That´s also the point why it says "Williams Hardware" because in Canada they use that shop for Lukes Diner.
So they recreated it in the Burbank WB studios.


and when we are talking about the very, very first pilot, i dont like the old dean and I am glad that we got our red-hair sookie, hehe

The different sets were so wierd for me, im so glad they changed it around.
The pilot was a good opening for the show. im going to buy the first season
to see the unaired orginal pilot. I always have favorite quotes on all the episodes
so here are ones for this one:

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.
LUKE: You have a problem.
LORELAI: Yes, I do.
LUKE: Junkie.
LORELAI: Angel. You've got wings, baby.
 
LORELAI: Oh, hi. You really like my table, don't you?
JOEY: I was just, uh. . .
LORELAI: Getting to know my daughter.
JOEY: Your. . .
RORY: Are you my new daddy?

RORY: When are you going to let your parents know that you listen to the evil rock music? You're an American teenager, for God's sake.

Oh, and he and Richard think alike. They both get the Lorelai's to eat grapefruit.

The best episode in the all World.
Lorelai already loves Luke. Like Sookie said " look him in the eyes is right there"...She fall in love for him right in the first episode and she show that almost everyday in the next seasons until their first kiss. The fights, The moments, The friendship...a mix of feelings that bound her love for Luke.

Great episode, but if you think about it, both lauren and alexis seem very different in the first episode as apposed to the later ones, obviously by looks in some way (aging is inevitable), the very first impression is different too, but alexis's voice seems much lower (or is that just me?).

Words can't explain how hard I laughed when Lorelai said, "this guy has really got a pair," or something to that extent.  Utterly hilarious.

Despite the minor discrepancies between this episode and the rest of the series, I thought it was an amazing premiere.

I hate to say this, but I didn't like this episode as a premeire.
It felt weird and too teen drama-y.
It was a good thing this wasn't the first eppy I saw, or I would have not continued.
Of course, after I worshipped the show for a while, I came to LOVE this eppy.

I enjoyed the episode but I must say that knowing what the show becomes, it seems slow. At least to me. Over the years the show got so fast, and I don't know, it just seems slow. Ok I've now repeated myself, sorry. Anywho, there are lots of great lines in the Pilot, and I think my favorite is "Are you my new daddy?" I don't know why, but it is.

I agree Emily does look better as we got into the later seasons.

Yeah, so much was lost from those early years. Sookie sort of quit carrying mayhem in her wake, Drella practically disappeared, and what was with Lane having parents (plural?)

RORY: How did this happen? You didn't. . .with the principal, did you?

Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: wmushell on August 21, 2007, 05:45:27 pm
This is such a great episode.  It promises of so many things to come . . . Chilton, Friday Night Dinners, Rory going to an Ivy League school, Luke and Lorelai, Rory's first love - Dean, and Lorelai and Sookie opening an Inn.  

Brilliant writing.

I love the opening with Lorelai walking across the street into Luke's.  I honestly don't think it's a coincidence that the first dialogue is between Luke and Lorelai.  It makes me happy.  Lauren's presence is soooooo strong in this first scene - she nailed the character of Lorelai right away.  An incredible lead actor who understands the importance of timing and banter.

This epi also captures the essence of the premise of the show -- best friends as mother and daughter, yet still mother and daughter.  A very strong bond, and yet not perfectly perfect.  But perfect enough to work out issues.

Some of my favorite lines:
*  "I offered to do the principal to get her in."
*  "Did you do something slutty?"  "I'm not that happy."
*  "Where's your pate?" "At Zsa Zsa Gabor's house."
*  "Someone who's willing to throw away important life experiences for a boy?  Sounds like me to me."
*  "So does he talk at all?"  "No, mom, he's a mime."

It's great that many of the supporting characters are already out in full force -- Michel with his snarkines, Sookie with her Sookie-ness, Lane with her friendly wit, and Mrs. Kim with her disapproving eyes.

Later on it is implied that Rory = perfection.  However, her character is pretty flushed out in this epi -- she's bright and lovely, but she is capable of giving her mom a hard time and is even sassy to Mrs. Kim.  "Boys do not like funny girls!"  LOL.

The transition from Lorelai's house to her sitting on the side of her Jeep while "The Colors Don't Go" is genius.

The Emily and Richard relationship with the girls is off to a bang and promises so many interesting storylines down the road.  

In short, I loved it.  :hearts:

This made me smile!!!  What a great post Kelly, and all great observations.  Do you really think it's got seven seasons in it though?  Hmmm I see the potential, but I don't want to count my chickens.   Okay enough of that!! :D

Wow I really love the pilot.  Yes it is slower in it's dialogue delivery, but boy was the wit in the writing there.  So many great lines, either in their content, their delivery or both.

The whole opening scene was just a great way to start a show, and I have to say my thoughts on that haven't changed.  Except watching it now, after seeing how Lorelai has progressed throughout the years, she came off as very sweet and dreamy in this first episode.  Not as much edge to her delivery as she has when the shows progresses.  But she still draws you in with those great facial expressions, making you want to watch more and more.

Loved meeting Drella - every single one of her lines was brilliant.  I wish we had more of her in the show, but I guess Paris kind of takes over that  :bam: :pow: knock them over with your words kind of role.  And I'm glad that Alex Borstein wasn't Sookie!  I love Melissa McCarthy in that role....all is as it should be there.

Speaking of which - comedic genius on display in this scene:

Sookie is on the ground after yet another kitchen accident and Lorelai offers to help her up

Sookie:  Oooww
Lorelai:  What?
Sookie:  Stepped on my thumb!  I'm fine.

PMSL  I just love that scene.

I loved meeting all the characters of Stars Hollow - and each of them had their moments that set up their characters which I think stayed true throughout the whole series.

Okay I'm going to leave this post for now, but I shall be back with some more thoughts soon.

I loved your post Shell and Caryn.  You said pretty much everything I was going to say.  The thing I love about the pilot and the earlier episodes is that Rory is so young and innocent, this is the Rory I truly enjoy watching b/c she is still growing and trying to figure out who she is.  The mother daughter relationship is also great is this episode, especially Lorelai being all concerned about a boy in Rory's life.   The pilot really does set the stage for the great things we know that come.   The ending in the diner always makes to smile how Luke tells Lorelai how nice she looks.  What I like is that we have no idea how strong their friendship is before this episode but you can tell right away how important they are to each other.  The only thing I do not like is the original set.  It is weird seeing Luke's with a different front entrance and Stars Hollow looking so unfamiliar.  Overall this is such a great episode and obvious everyone thought so at the time b/c the show ran for 7 wonderful seasons!!!

LORELAI: When did you get stitches?

SOOKIE: Friday night. Radish roses.

It's funny watching the characters start their evolution all over again, but I guess it would miss the point to spoil future episodes discussing this one. :)

I like the way they were all introduced, too. The character set up is totally cohesive, you really get the feeling of each character right away. Though Luke seemed an unlikely health nut to me, even the first time I watched it!

I guess Drella would have made a great love interest for Michel if she'd stayed. I mean, she's cultured, well turned out, and plays a classical instrument, but she's still as obnoxious as he is. It would have taken plenty of seasons to put it together, though. *snicker

I love what everyone has been saying, in fact it's made me think of one more thing. I liked the clumsy Sookie. It was just so funny, and I guess throughout the years she still had a bit of the problem, but it seemed to die down to me. I miss that part about Sookie. I thought it was funny, and it reminded me of me. Well that's all for now.

Lessa Drella and Michel together would have been so funny!

Heh, I just had a great idea for a spinoff. Sookie, zee great chef, Drella, zee great musician, and Michel, zee great concierge starting a hotel together. Each is a genius in his or her hotel-related field, but their highly artistic personalities clash and make it hard to do business. The pilot would center around them finding the perfect manager to corral them into the black.

Lessa:  that is pure genius with your insight there.  I don't know how I haven't seen it before.  Drella and Michel would have made such a wonderfully comedic couple to watch.  Snarky versus snarky with such great little lines going back and forth.  That is something I could watch for sure.

It would have been great to have Sookie continue in her clumsiness.  I think timewise that may have been a logistical nightmare though.  Can you imagine how hard it would have been to shoot that scene in the pilot.  It was done so perfectly, that any future, lesser efforts would most definately pale in comparison.

Plus, with that much comedic talent stacked at the inn, it would have been hard to drag the cameras away. :D

I don't remember even seeing Taylor in this episode, It seemed like Miss Patty sort of ran things. Hee, I loved her speech to the little ballerinas, it reminded me of my old ballet instructor.

MISS PATTY: One-two-three. One-two-three. One-two-three. It's a waltz, ladies. Susie, do you have to tinkle? Then uncross your legs, darling. [sees Rory] Oh, Rory, good. I think I found a job for your male friend.

LORELAI: What male friend?

MISS PATTY: They need a stock boy at the supermarket. I already talked to Taylor Doose about him. You just send him around tomorrow.

RORY: Okay, thanks.

LORELAI: What male friend?

MISS PATTY: Oh ,he's very cute. You have good taste.

[Miss Patty turns back to her dance class.]

MISS PATTY: Hands in the air, not in the nose.

I think everyone said it here already but I totally agree, each actor really had their character nailed in the first episode!  These characteristics from the first episode really remained for the whole 7 seasons (with some growth of course).  It was weird to see the old sets.  I think the pilot did a great job of explaining everyone's backgrounds, and made way for the series.  Sometimes I think pilots try to stuff too much information in to get the viewer to see what the show is about, but I think this one really made a great show, but still provided you with enough information to understand the dynamics of the show.  It showed the relationship Lorelai had with her parents, the best friend relationship with Rory, Sookie and Lorelai's dream of wanting to open their own inn, Luke and Lorelai's relationship, the quirkiness of the town, Rory's love of reading, Lane's relationship with her mom, Rory's first love with Dean, Michel's snarkiness.  I love how it showed how Friday night dinners started.  You got a lot of information about the show in the first episode with out feeling overloaded! 

I saw the pilot after I had already got into the show.  I really wonder what I would have thought of it if I had not already watched the show???

Wow! I just realized that Alexis Bledel looks SO different back in the pilot episode. Is it just me? Her face seems rounder than it does in the final episodes..... Maybe I'm just obsessing.   :D But I really do love the pilot episode. It's where it all began. I wonder why they got rid of Drella though. Maybe they thought it would be too many characters... Something to think about I guess. Well I would post more, but I have to go to work. Boo. Until next time!

I kind of see that too.....


Anyway. I also love the opening scene! It always makes me smile  :D I tihnk one of the most imporatant sets is Luke's dinner, and I really like how it opens to Lorelai walking in there. And, then 1 min into the show and you already know about her coffee obbsession! That's one of my favorite things about Lorelai's character. One thing I didn't like though, was the guy who was basically hitting on Lorelai then Rory. He said that Rory didn't look 16...but I tihnk she looks younger, very inocent. Anyway....great way to start!

Cheers to all the great posts on this episode!  :)  Not all shows have good pilots but i think this is a great one. I also love that the opening dialogue is classic L&L bantering about coffee.

One piece of dialogue that always jumps out to me is when Lorelai goes to Emily & Richard to borrow the Chiton money and says, "I don't ask for favors, you know that" and Emily comes right back with "Oh, yes, we know". I always see that as the earliest hint of the underlying tension between them, all the baggage that comes out later in this episode and throughout the entire series.

It was forgotten later in the series that Dean was originally the new guy in town, from Chicago. By the time Rory was in Yale, Dean was portrayed more as a S.H. local.

There is plenty of classic dialogue in this ep, but i especially love this sequence:

MRS. KIM: Go upstairs. Tea is ready. I have muffins -- no dairy, no sugar, no wheat. You have to soak them in tea to make them soft enough to bite but they're very healthy. So, how was school? None of the girls get pregnant and drop out?

LANE: Not that we know of.

RORY: Though come to think of it, Joanna Posner was glowing a little.

MRS. KIM: What?

LANE: Nothing, Mama. She's just kidding.

MRS. KIM: (very seriously) Boys don't like funny girls.

RORY: Noted.

And Richard, right out of the gate, he's the picture of the absent intellectual, more than happy to help Lorelai out and completely oblivious to the sparks between his wife and daughter.

RICHARD: Rory. You're tall.

RORY: I guess.

RICHARD: Well, what's your height?

RORY: 5'7".

RICHARD: That's tall. She's tall.

Actually, that is pretty darn tall. But he seems so surprised, you get the idea that he hardly ever looks directly at her.
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: bingbong on August 22, 2007, 10:45:03 am
That reminds me that when Gran meets Lorelai and Rory later in the series, she also says they are tall. With Richard it was half-indifferent surprise; with Gran, it almost sounded like an accusation.

Katy  :)

I'm pretty sure that Alex Borstein (Drella) got another part in MAD TV, or already had a part in that and couldn't be freed up for the required time.  I've seen it on these boards somewhere before...just not sure where.  I'm sure somebody will swoop in with the more accurate answer sometime though.

Wow! I just realized that Alexis Bledel looks SO different back in the pilot episode. Is it just me? Her face seems rounder than it does in the final episodes..... 

Yeah she's still got her baby face then.  I mean she was around 16-18 years old when she started wasn't she.  That's very young and she still had a lot of growing to do.

There were 3 things I wanted to comment on about your post Jim...so I've spaced it out a bit.  Firstly was - I agree.  It's great to see some discussion again when it comes to the pilot episode.  And it's been great re-living it with other Org members.

Next is that I also love that encounter between Lorelai and her parents when she first goes to their house.  I'm a huge Emily and Richard fan and to see the way this relationship was set up was a huge draw card for me.  I also love the scene that occurs at the FND when Emily is stating to Rory that "Next to family, there is nothing so important as a good education"  And Lorelai chimes in with "and pie"   :D.  I just love that.  And Emily's reaction to it was priceless.  It so reminds me of my own relationship with my mother.  I was all in at this point...well I think it occured from the opening scene, but there was no doubting it after this.

Lastly, Dean's character is the one that I feel didn't stay as true to it's origins as it was first protrayed.  Personality wise I think he stayed on track.  But as you say Jim, he was definately portrayed as more of a local as time passed.  And the other thing that was always glaringly obvious was the 'dumbing down' of Dean as time progressed.  In this pilot he seems to be quite well versed with his books and authors and the like, and this continues for a little while, but then it kind of slips into oblivion.  Now it becomes obvious why this happens downt he track.....I just think it's a shame.

My theory on Drella (as opposed to the actress who played her) is that she either got fired because of her snarky attitude (which i thought was a hoot, but the inn guests might not and eventually there would be complaints about her), or she simply walked off the job out of disgust for everyone! I can't imagine a peaceful parting between her and the inn.  :D But it was a shame we didn't get to see it!

Although Alexis was older than the part she played, it was important that she looked the age. Same goes for Keiko as Lane. I don't like shows or movies where the actors look 10 years older than the roles they are playing. I prefer a high school student to look at least close to the age. I thought Alexis always looked the age of Rory, all the way through the series.

Next is that I also love that encounter between Lorelai and her parents when she first goes to their house.  I'm a huge Emily and Richard fan and to see the way this relationship was set up was a huge draw card for me.  I also love the scene that occurs at the FND when Emily is stating to Rory that "Next to family, there is nothing so important as a good education"  And Lorelai chimes in with "and pie"   :D.  I just love that.  And Emily's reaction to it was priceless.  It so reminds me of my own relationship with my mother.  I was all in at this point...well I think it occured from the opening scene, but there was no doubting it after this.
lol - the "pie line is one of my faves in the episode! You mentioned how Dean's character changed greatly during the series. I think Emily & Richard were remarkably consistent all the way through to the end. They rarely did something that seemed out of whack with their characters. As you said, this ep laid the groundwork for things to come. Funny how "chemistry" goes for good and bad between characters!

Great discussion. I have some other thoughts and I hope to be able to comment on the discussion later.

General thought:  The pilot set being different never really bothered me much. In fact, I am a fond of how much 'warmer' the lighting seems in the pilot.  On the reg. set the lighting just seems a little darker, maybe with more of a blue hue than an orange/warm one.

Luke:  Health nut!  Notice he wears a dress shirt in this episode. He seems a lot more classy than how causual and rustic he become overtime. I think they are consistent with his healthy tendencies, but he doesn't continue to harp the 'girls' as much.

Rory/Lorelai being hit on scene:  Part of this always confused me.  When Lorelai tells them she's 16? Is she really 16 then or does she just improv, because she'll be 16 in a few weeks.  Wouldn't it make more sense to make her sound younger, to scare them away more!?  I never got this.

(All for now, I've got a dirty diaper to change  ... I hope to return to comment on the previous discussion.)

Edit: (Now Andrew's kind of asleep ...)

Dean's Character Changes:  I never really thought of it that. I really didn't get into the show until the 2nd season and caught up on the 1st season during re-runs.  I was never a huge Dean fan, because his charecter seemed so 2 dimensional to me and in comparison with other suitors, a lot more dull.  However, I had never been able to 'put my finger on' why I didn't mind him so much in season 1 when he was the only option ... well I guess Tristan shows up soon ... but basically Dean was a lot more cultured at the beginning.   That would make sense moving into the Hollow from Chicago.  I mean, the way they evolve his character (or de-evolve it), I don't think the Dean of Season 3 would be interested in the girl who was able to keep reading while an emergency happened in the park.  As for how he is portrayed in later seasons, I think that is okay.  I mean by the 4th season he has been in SH for 4+ years and he had graduated from HS there and married a home town girl ... so this fits. 

Drella & Michel:  :)  LOL!  That would have been cute, but I don't it would have lasted long.  They are both too selfish to be able to care about someone else for so long.  I could see her character walking off the job, but the idea of her being fired for her attitude, wouldn't give into consideration Michel.  ;)  That brings up the idea of how much do you tolerate someone who is great at their job, but a pain in the arse?  Is it worth the battle?

Who controls the town?  Patty or Taylor?  Someone mentioned that Taylor isn't really in the episode, but that Patty was the one who wrangled a job for Dean.  Yet,  as I recall Miss Patty has more of a presence in the early life of the show and I think as Taylor got more screantime, Miss Patty got less.  Makes me wonder... were they ever an item?   :-*  Could she have something to hang over his head?

This cracks me up because Luke talks healthy but the food he serves in the diner often looks like greasy slop to me, loaded with fat and cholesterol. It might taste yummy but it will sit lodged in Lorelai's and Rory's arteries for many years to come. Looking at it that way, you can say Lorelai will always carry a piece of Luke inside her.  ;)

Drella & Michel:  :)  LOL!  That would have been cute, but I don't it would have lasted long.  They are both too selfish to be able to care about someone else for so long.  I could see her character walking off the job, but the idea of her being fired for her attitude, wouldn't give into consideration Michel.  ;)  That brings up the idea of how much do you tolerate someone who is great at their job, but a pain in the arse?  Is it worth the battle?

That's a good point about Michel not getting the axe for his behavior. Maybe he is considered indispensible to the business with his so-called expertise; i recall in at least one episode he mentioned taking some kind of hotel or inn management course. Ok, this is a stretch, i admit it! If i was his boss, he would either have to adjust the 'tude or seek employment elsewhere. For Drella, it could be that the inn did not need a harp player full-time. How much harp can an inn have before it's time to move on to something else? I would love to see Drella play for the Emily's DAR group. It would be a major Snark Fest.

Ahhhh...as I watched this episode again, it reminded me of how I fell in love with this amazing show!

I grabbed a glass of water in a coffe cup, some nachos, and a box of kleenex...yes, kleenex because I just knew in the back of my mind that I would need them. And indeed, I did.

This revisiting, rewatching has a great deal of meaning to me. I wasn't into Gilmore Girls when it first started airing and didn't really get into to until the third season, so I didn't see the pilot when it first aired. I since then, have seen it numerous times and for some reason, it is one of my favorite episodes. So much happens within the episode that you really get pulled into what IS Stars Hallow, who ARE Lorelai and Rory (and Luke, Miss Patty, Lane, Sookie, Dean...) and you're drawn to sit there in anticipation of the next week's episode. There's only been a few other shows that I've felt close to that way about, one being Heroes.

As I watched the episode, knowing that others were watching it at the same time as I was, I really let it sink in. It was SO COOL, no only to know that others were watching the same episode at the same time as I was and they were members of the ORG, but also to really take a different look at the episode.

I wanted to look at it as though I hadn't seen the show before. I wanted to try to get back that anticipation feeling that I once had when seeing a new episode. I wanted to get back that "innocence" if you will, to the whole show and the characters. I wanted to see if this time I found anything new about it, if I fell in love with the same characters, if I got mad at the same parts or laughed at the same time as I had time and time again.

Much to my amazement for most of it, I did. I laughed when I normally laugh, I got frustrated when I have. BUT, I saw different sides to the characters that I hadn't before. I really made every effort to look at things as unbais as I could and tried to see how I could have come out different on this, where my love for GG is. And while I know that I would have loved the show just as much if not more. I love it for so many different reasons already, and it's just the first episdoe!

As far as the thoughts about the episode (that's right, that's why we're here right?! ha!) I must say that I have to agree with Caryn, in her thought about Dean. When I first remember Dean, I thought he's great! He's got something special. This time, I'm thinking that he absolutely does have something special, but he loses it throughout the next couple years. I wish he would have stayed the same. I really enjoyed seeing him, in his new to town, I've been watching you in a non-stalker kind of way. He's great in this episode. I just really started thinking about how he just doesn't keep it! But that's neither here nor there right now.

I love the line "When are you going to tell you mom that you listen to the evil rock music?" And then Lane's innocence and youngness at this point. I love how she's trying to become her own and hold her own while living with the family she lives with. I have really felt a fresh new bond starting with Lane and I this time. Being that we're both from Korea, I already had but this time it's even stronger - I can tell. She's trying to make her own way, pave her own road, and be different, something I can all too clearly remember myself doing at that age!

And Sookie, ya gotta love Sookie in all her glory and clumsiness! I thought that maybe this time around, I would try to pay attention to if I really did like her as much as I thought I did. And I do! I love Sookie, even more so than before perhaps. She's just so carefree and happy and just makes me smile even thinking about her!

Emily and Richard - how young they look in this episode! HA! I think they have changed a LOT in the last 7 seasons! I think that they have come a long way with their characater development, their interaction with Lorelai and I think that I really like their characters a lot more than I thought I did. I paid a lot closer attention to them this time...and I can't wait to have different thoughts about them as we view further episodes together!

I realized how so very realistic this show is. How the things that Rory is feeling about finding a 'boy' and wanting to stay at Stars Hallow High, about how she acts during that whole argument, about how Lorelai acts with her parents when asking for money. The whole thing, it's like watching a family interact on all sorts of various levels. I love that about this show but watching the pilot again really hit that home...how very realistic this show is and that's a great deal of why I love it so.

I shall end this rambling post but wanted to say a few quick comments back to people before I do...

Jimbong ;) I thought of you and smiled during the line "and pie" :P You make me smile anyway...but knew that you'd point something out about that line! (I owe you a PM, and it's coming!)

Melissa I completely agree about the set lighting and had just thought "I like the lighter feel of the mood and screen" when re-watching the episode one more time before tonight. I wish that the lighter feel would have stayed a bit more. I have to agree!

GilmoreAddict forgive me as I don't remember your first name, if you've given it. I feel bad! I too love the first scene of the show, but this time, I really loved the opening with Lorelai actually walking to Luke's and the song playing. I hadn't noticed that as much as I did this time. I love the Luke/ Lorelai exchange. However, I wanted this time to notice other things about the first five minutes of the show and I think it was successful.

I love the discussion that is taking place here! It's great to re-think things and hear how other people feel about the episode - how looking back can be different but good and refreshing. I sometime want to compare the thoughts with the first time seeing the episode to now (within the post), I think that would be fun and very interesting. I'd like to see what stayed the same and changed.

I'm sure I'll return and am so looking forward to these episode threads being more active again! I can definitely see coming back to them even after we've watched ahead again. Great discussion and thoughts everyone!

Cheers~

Maybe Michel's attitude is tolerated because (please don't shoot me for this) he's French!  Maybe part of it is based on the American stereotype for those from France.  And it brings up the ?, is he really good at his job?

Michel seems like someone who is good at the administrative aspect of the job. But the job requires people skills and he stinks in that area. Would anyone want to call the inn for a reservation and deal with him on the phone? Not me. At best, his phone personality would be tolerable to a customer. At worst, the inn would lose lots of business.

'Bout time Sooks chimed in!  ;)  I love your take on the show for its realism. I love how Rory & Lane come across as typical teenagers, not Hollywood Barbie dolls, but actual people who seem familiar to us. I think that kind of credibility was huge in connecting with viewers. Ditto on Lorelai, and right from the gitgo we see her in job mode, mom mode and daughter mode when dealing with E & R (which must feel to her like visiting an E.R.).

I love that we're all talking about the episodes, which is after all the core of the whole thing.

I always figured Michel's attitude towards customers was the reason he was working at a picturesque inn on the outskirts of North Podunk instead of the Waldorf-Hartford or something. Michel provided the appearance of austerity and snobbery that tourists find so appealing and Sookie supplied the substance that kept them coming back. Michel is like Lorelai's inner compass for Emily-like taste.

Drella getting fired? Nah, she was first alternate to the NY Philharmonic.

I liked the way Lane was introduced, too, right out of the gate she's lying and keeping secrets, but it's immediately balanced by her parents trying to arrange her marriage.

Heh, and I think I've finally figured out why Paris isn't in the last episode.

I love your comment about Michel, Lessa! :P Your words are so perfect!

I must say that I love harpist! She's got to be one of my favorite 'non-main' character! She's classic. "Did you not want a great harp player?" She makes me laugh! "Well, I am a great harp player and this is my great harp!" Spoken like a true bi...well, nevermind.

This time around, I'm also trying to pay more attention to the smaller roles and those characters that I didn't like the past. Perhaps there's a reason?! We'll just have to see...

That line of Drella's also makes me laugh aloud everytime Mel.  She is just a fantastic character.  I wish we had seen more of her.  Even a return appearance for the opening of the Dragonfly would have been great.  I mean she is married to Jackson in real life, so she would have still been connected to the show.

I am also finding that with viewing this episode with the intention of having discussion about it this time around, that I'm paying so much more attention to the backgrounds and lesser characters.  I'm not sure if I am being analytical for discussion purposes, or if it's nostalgia watching it again now that it's all over.  (I have of course watch a gazillion episodes since it's end, but not in this vain.)

Yep I think we've have discussed that in the episodes that Miss Seline appears in.  And she does an absolutely marvellous job yet again.  But for me, you can't beat the acid tongued quips that are delivered by characters like Drella and Paris and Michel and on occasion Lorelai.  I love those moments.

There are a lot of acid tongued characters on GG. I would add Emily, Mrs. Kim, Gran and Gypsy to your list. Probably others i can't think of at the moment.  For Lorelai, i think she is a little different in that she spews her acid more in response to the acid of others, rather than initiating the acid spewing. Wow, that's a lot of acid.  ;)

I spent a lot of time at Kentridge for sport games. This is real cool. Anytime I hear of a well known person graduating from one of the four Kent schools I freak out.

i think this pilot episode is incredibly well written and well executed, especially given the fact that the show was brand new. the opening scene where lorelai walks through stars hollow on her way to lukes is important because it gives the viewers a peek into the small-town charm that stars hollow is known for. also, her pleading with luke for a cup of coffee illustrates one of the quirks of the show, which is lorelai and rory's obsession with coffee. the scene where the young man comes in and tries to hit on lorelai and tries again with rory when she enters is perfect for showing the viewer that lorelai and rory not only LOOK more like sisters than mother and daughter, but they also have more of a sisterly relationship than a mother-daughter one. when lorelai realizes what she is going to have to do in order to pay rory's enrollment fee and first semester's tuition, her actions illustrate that she will stop at nothing to make sure rory gets the best education possible. i love the scene where lorelai actually arrives at her parents' house because as soon as emily opens the door the viewer gets a taste of what her character is going to be like throughout the series. the same goes for richard's character. the friendship between rory and lane is also brought to light in this episode and the viewer is able to quickly recognize each character that will play a vital part in the show. when a pilot episode is this well thought out and gives the viewer such a great amount of insight into what the future of the show has to offer as this one does, you KNOW the show is definitely going to be worth watching.

I missed the pilot and didn't see it until I got the season 1 dvd's last year. It's a great pilot and does really well in introducing the town, the characters and their situations. It feels a lot more slower-paced and chilled out compared to the the rest of the series! I think that Dean looks a bit like a stalker when we first see him, leaning up against the wall, mouth slightly open, and gazing a Rory. *shudder* But then when we next see him he's not at all like that and is really sweet and lovely. Huh 
Title: Re: 1.01 - Pilot
Post by: violaplayer1234 on October 22, 2007, 07:11:35 pm
Back to the beginning.  The Pilot.  The first episode to ever be filmed or aired of Gilmore Girls.  And what a great one it is.  Many many pilots of shows are too informative and don't focus on being witty or funny.  Gilmore Girls combines both.  I'll go by character.
 
Lorelai--The first character we see.  She seems interesting, seems to have a lot of emotional baggage and is strangely addicted to coffee.  And she and that diner guy, Duke, Luke?  Do they have something going on? 
 
Hah.  This episode highlights the reasons why Lorelai is who she is.  We find out that she got pregnant at 16 and assumedly dropped out of school to raise her daughter.  I had forgotten how many great lines she used to have.  The whole opening scene with her and Luke was completely amazing, the dialogue that sets the stage for what will become the main relationship of the show.
 
Rory--I think she likes that boy, Dean is it?  And he likes her, although that whole "I've been watching you" thing was slightly creepy.  Even though he said it wasn't, it still was.
 
Rory is smart and driven, we can see that in the shot of them in class.  She's starting this new school, so excited...she still seems older than 16 here though...  And how did she still do so well not participating in gym?  Isn't that still part of a grade? 
 
Lane--We hear the referance of parents by her.  Note the s.  So what happened to her dad?  It's an ongoing mystery throughout all 153 episodes.  Her mom is so strict, but Rory was outright rude to her.  She basically snarked back at Mrs. Kim when she was talking about the pregnant girls.  And Mrs. Kim doesn't seem to hate Rory in the other episodes as much as she seemed to in this one...but maybe Mrs. Kim makes some realizations too.  Poor Lane though, yet another Korean doctor. 
 
Luke--We surprisingly don't see a lot of him in this episode.  He's only in a few scenes, but maybe AS-P didn't know if she was going to make him a major character or not.  I'm glad she did, but that's just me.  His diner has all the hardware stuff in it, it was a nice touch for the first episode, they should've kept some of it, it made it more reminisicant of a hardware store.
 
Emily and Richard--Well, I hate how Emily always looks about 20 years older in this episode than in any other.  And the Gilmore house seems a lot darker and more foreboding in this episode, all the dark and dreary paintings about the walls.  And maybe it's slightly symbolic of the gloominess that gets somewhat shoved into the corner when Rory and Lorelai start to visit more and have a better relationship with them...but maybe not.
 
Sookie--She's very very very clumsy here.  I suppose once she starts having kids she needs to be a little more careful and she might've outgrown it, but still, there were so many accidents!  She's very sweet though, a great friend to Lorelai, and you can see all the rough edges that will be worn smooth over the years as she developes.
 
Dean--I had honestly forgotten he came from Chicago, that he was new...by season 4 they make him seem like a regular to Stars Hollow.  And he was a lot smarter in this episode than they make him out to be, especially when he's fighting with Jess.  Because, I LOVE Jess, you must understand that, I loved Jess, but when Dean came into episodes with Jess they made Dean seem like an idiot because they had to make Jess seem smarter...but here he could talk with Rory and know what she was talking about...he was still slightly creepy though.
 
Michel--He really does not change.  I must remember that, he has always been snarky and mean, and nothing really changes.
 
Drella--She's very funny, and it's too bad they took her out, however, I'm glad Melissa McCarthy got Sookie's role. 
Other notes:
 
The different sets really bother me.  They shouldn't.  But they do.
So many great lines.  "What holidays are in September?"  "People are being particularily stupid today, I can't take anymore of them."  "I'm going to be in a Britney Spears video."  "Education is the most important thing, next to family." 'And pie.'  It's all so wonderful.
This doesn't have a lot to analyze, as it is still a set up episode.  We can analyze characters.
The music in this episode was wonderful, so many great songs.  They always have good music, but this had a wonderful amount and mixture.

But a wonderful starting episode.  Question: All of the first episodes are generally called Pilot, so what do you think this episode might have been called had they decided to give it an actual title?

Grace- That is the most amazing description of the characters and the episode I have ever read. I am going to have to think about a real title for the Pilot.

Personally, the Pilot is my favorite. I love the information that you're given. In that short hour, you learn so much about Lorelai and her little family. We are introduced to the people who keep her in running order. I love the portrayal of Sookie. It basically sums her up in about 2 minutes. She's quirky, but SO loving. Even from that very first encounter at the diner, I could tell that Luke had a little somethin somethin for Lorelai. They have the most hilarious relationship..all of these amazing little moments make up a great base for the following 152 epis.

Kim- that's already an episode name.
Maybe something like The past, the now, the future.
The episode tells the past, what's going on now, and kind of gives you hints of the future.

This has nothing to do with above. I love the beginning. Like, the first 5 seconds. Gilmore Girls appears, and then they show the people walking before they just show Lorelai. It makes you think of which one the main character is (if it's your first time watching it). Also, I love how they started out kind of showing the town. It tels you that the town will be a big part of it. I also love Luke and Lorelai's meeting to us. It tells you that there probably is something between them. And, like someone said, they told all about Sookie in just a couple of minutes. I love the whole episode. And especially how much they showed the hate between Lorelai and her parents. It also really showed the best friendness of Lorelai and Rory.

i love the scene where it shows rory in class with those other girls who are passing around the nail polish. i could be mistaken, that might actually happen in the second episode, but my intentions are good either way.

this scene illustrates why it's such a great thing that rory is transferring to chilton. the girls at stars hollow high school are much like madeline and louise that we meet when rory actually goes to chilton. they are so self-absorbed and concerned with superficial things that don't matter in the realm of eternal significance that they push the value of education to the backburner and waste the opportunity they've been blessed with. rory works hard for what she gets out of life and chilton is the perfect place for her to go in order for her to be challenged. kids who aren't challenged by the work they do in school often become tired of everything being so simple and focus their attention on other things, and this is where many kids begin getting into trouble during their high school years. i thought it was pretty cool that rory was so excited about getting in. that speaks very highly of her character.
another thing i found interesting was how excited sookie was that rory got into chilton. we already basically gather that lorelai and sookie are best friends, but the fact that sookie is just as overjoyed as lorelai and rory are shows us that she has been an integral part of their lives in stars hollow and that she truly cares about rory's well being. THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is a true friend: someone who can share in your joy even when it has NOTHING to do with them, nor does it benefit them in any way.

favorite quote from this episode: "no, i'm sorry, we are completely booked."
michel says it approximately 239,487,349,085,798,345 times.

yes it's from the 1st  episode...

my favored quote took place in the end of the episode
Luke: Coffee, and fries (looks at Rory as she's sipping her coffee). I can't stand it. This is so unhealthy. Rory, please. Put down that cup of coffee. You do not want to grow up to be like your mom.
Rory: Sorry, too late.

Michel: "Madame, you have no idea how desperately I want to help, but I would have to build you a room myself, and I'm not a man who works with his hands."
***
Lorelai: "You know who's really nice to talk to? The people at the unemployment agency."
***
When Rory asks Lane when she's going to tell her parents that she listens to "the evil rock music", it's implied that Lane was considering telling them soon or something. 

I watched this (for the zillionth time) last night and I had all these things I was going to mention and now I can't seem to remember any of them.

Summary:The storybook Connecticut town of Stars Hollow is home to 32-year-old Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her 16-year-old daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel). Rory and her best friend Lane Kim (Keiko Agena) are straight 'A' students at the local public high school, but when Rory is accepted into the prestigious Chilton Prep in nearby Hartford, the steep tuition forces Lorelai to try to mend the long-standing rift with her wealthy parents Richard (Edward Herrmann) and Emily (Kelly Bishop) and ask for financial help.

I noticed that Lane refers to her mom as her parents.  I wonder if they were going to put in a Mr. Kim and they changed their minds.  Or does Lane always refer to her mother in the plural?

I also noticed something that is very frequently repeated in future episodes.  Lorelai's idea that she and Rory have this perfect relationship, and then they have a fight,  which is often accompanied by Rory acting like a brat.

Seeing this on Friday, I thought it was a really good pilot.  With the exception of Macy Gray, it's got a great soundtrack, the quirkiness that is to come as well as the drama.

Emily and Richard looked very different in the first episode.  Emily's hair is a bit different while Richard looked younger.  Luke's appearances were fun and grouchy, especially the last scene where's wearing a shirt tucked in with the pants.

It's definitely got a great tone.  If there is going to be GG film, I would suggest to start the film the same way the Pilot began.  Lorelai asking for lots of coffee from Luke almost in the same dialogue but... with their own children demanding for some Java with Luke saying, "You're just like your mother", and they'd be saying "Thanks Dad".

It's amazing how YOUNG Rory looks in season 1 compared to season 7. I know you're saying "Duh, that's a seven year difference." It's just a pretty amazing thing to have two such amazing characters in the beginning and to watch them grow and mature over the next seven years. From the Rory who did nothing but study and keep to herself for the most part to the Rory we see in Season 7, going off to pursue the dream she's been chasing since the day she told Headmaster Charleston she wanted to be Christian Amanpour, there is such a HUGE difference there. And from the Lorelai who fumbles from relationship to relationship throughout the season, we see in the end of Season 7 the very real possibility that she has finally discovered her soul mate, the one we've known all along should have been her only choice, there is a ton of maturing that happens in her life as well. And as for their relationship together, we see everything from total closeness and intimacy to going a couple of months without speaking to each other, as well as a reunion that made all of us cry.

As far as pilot episodes go, I've not seen many that really do a very good job of selling the series. This one, however, is an extremely accurate representation of what is to come if the viewers wish to stick around Stars Hollow for a while...I stuck around, and I'm so glad I did! In this one episode, we are introduced to the key characters who will play some of the most important roles in the show,as well as some of the supporting characters we are sure to know and love before long.

Everybody looks so different from the beginning to the end... I
I though it was an amazing pilot and it hit every single point that the show is about right on. Like Luke and Lorelai's relationship, Rory's hard-working attitude, Lorelai's love of coffee, the town, Michel being...Michel... etc. I love how ASP did that, she really is an amazing writer.

Being a fan of Supernatural, I L0L upon seeing Jared Padalecki.

He looked so baby faced and lanky and his character's name is Dean?


ROTLMA0!


Really like the supporting players, except for Mama Gilmore.  Not feeling her at all.

Lorelai's dad is funny, especially when he fell asleep at the dinner table.

I never was a fan of Emily's.  Kelly Bishop is great, but never did like the way that Emily treated Lorelai, even if Lorelai did run away with Rory.  I always felt that Emily never did really want Lorelai back in her life, she just knew that the only way of getting her hands on Rory was to let Lorelai back in, too.  That she just wanted to make Rory into what she had wanted to make Lorelai into. 

Richard is more likeable and sometimes funny, but still has that bitter edge to him.

It was funny seeing Jared/Dean go on to Supernatural and having a brother Dean on there.  I don't really watch Supernatural all that much, but did catch the episode where Sam and Dean went to the movie studio and went on the tour bus and got off just as they were going onto the Gilmore Girls set on the back lot of Warner Bros.  That was funny.

I never was a fan of Emily's.  Kelly Bishop is great, but never did like the way that Emily treated Lorelai, even if Lorelai did run away with Rory.  I always felt that Emily never did really want Lorelai back in her life, she just knew that the only way of getting her hands on Rory was to let Lorelai back in, too.  That she just wanted to make Rory into what she had wanted to make Lorelai into. 

Richard is more likeable and sometimes funny, but still has that bitter edge to him.

It was funny seeing Jared/Dean go on to Supernatural and having a brother Dean on there.  I don't really watch Supernatural all that much, but did catch the episode where Sam and Dean went to the movie studio and went on the tour bus and got off just as they were going onto the Gilmore Girls set on the back lot of Warner Bros.  That was funny.

Hi fellow Stars Hollow citizens!
I'm a totale newbie here. I'm from the Netherlands and I've been watching Gilmore Girls over 8 times, just can't do without it.

But I wanted to ask how you can change your own Profile/Avatar picture and Signature?
