1  Gilmore Girls / Show and Cast Member News / LAST MINUTE IDEA TO SAVE GG! on: May 15, 2007, 02:44:51 pm
I never started a new topic, so I don't know if this should go somewhere else, but I have a last minute idea about how we can get another GG season.  Last year, Seventh Heaven was cancelled, and on it's final night, so many people tuned in, that the CW made a last-minute decision to pick it up.  Hopefully lots and lots of people will tune in to watch GG tonight, but since it was only recently that the show was officially cancelled, the GG farewell may not have received the publicity it deserves.  SO GET IT OUT THERE!  We only have a couple more hours (more time for other time zones).  Send those annoying mass e-mails, write it on the back window of your car and hang out in rush-hour traffic, My-Space and Facebook the news - Call you friends, your Aunts, your Grandmothers, tell them to tell their friends -  tell people to TUNE IN!  You never know what can happen...

I thought the one where the cops had to be called was the one where they broke into Taylor's fridge on a scavenger hunt (that was her 12th birthday).

LUKE: So I hear you're having a party Saturday.

RORY: Yeah. Mom's famous for her blowouts.

LORELAI: The best one was her eighth birthday.

RORY: Oh, yeah, that was good.

LORELAI: The cops shut us down.

LUKE: The cops shut down an eight year old's birthday party?

RORY: And arrested the clown.

LUKE: I don't want to hear any more of this.

That is from Rory's "Birthday Parties." I think the scavenger hunt reference is in "Super Cool Party People, but unfortunately, I can't access the transcript to that episode because no one has posted it yet.

I was not surprised by Emily's change in behavior in the morning. In fact, I predicted something exactly like that would happen. That's just what Emily does.

I liked Emily's speech about how Lorelai is independent. She did the same thing when they were in the food court in "Scene in a Mall." She admired Lorelai for her ability to "do things" because Emily felt that she, herself, had never really "done" anything.

Someone mentioned before that Rory's 8th birthday party was previously noted to be the one where cops came. That is true, because the next line is Luke saying "The cops broke up an 8 year old's birthday party?" I don't think this 8 year old birthday party with the teddy bear tea kept up with the continuity of that, meanwhile all through the episode, the writers were tossing in random throw-backs to classic GG, just to seem like they were keeping up the continuity.

Which brings me to my next point. I don't know how I feel about random things being thrown into the episode just to let us know that the writers remember or researched the history of the show. I can't remember all of the examples, and if anyone can think of one from this episode, refresh my memory. At first, when I saw it happening in other episodes this season, I was like "ohh, I like that" but now I don't know. It seems sloppy to reference other episodes, and then make a blunder in the next line.

I'm not bashing the episode, just musing here. I actually liked the episdoe overall. I don't think Mitchum Huntzburger was responsible for Logan's misfortune, simply because Gilmore Girls tends not to have that mysterious, backstabbing, surprise antagonist quality about it. If we found out right away that Mitchum had done it, that would make sense. I really don't think GG is going to reveal some kind of backstabbing plot. It certainely has not been like that so far.

I have seen people ask many times where to get episodes online, and I have seen moderators and other members tell them that the org frowns upon illegall downloads (something about the org not getting in trouble for encouraging it).  Just so you know, whoever is asking.

    No, I did not yet recieve an e-mail back from MA, but I am not hoping for an e-mail as much as I am hoping for a response in Wednesday's Ask Ausiello (I did write a pretty witty e-mail complete with an asterisk quiz). 

     I suppose what I would need to put the plan in action is his work address (if I could get my hands on the floor number of the building, that would be great), any letters or anything else from you or other members that you guys would want to have hand-delivered, and suggestions of what to say if I happen to encounter Mr. Ausiello himself.  Also, if anyone wants to chip in to fund the "Snappling" (a name I just came up with for this operation) that would be great.  I'll take anything, or nothing, and put it all into diet Raspberry Snapple.

Hi GG602, I'm in NYC too, if you need help with the Snapple!

     I have a completely under-developed plan in its early stages, to walk into to Ausiello's office with a case of snapple wrapped in either smurf paper or Great8Mandate flyers, begging him to give us recognition in his column.  No idea if this will work, but perhaps you can come too!
6  Gilmore Girls / General Discussion / Re: The Great8Mandate on: February 18, 2007, 08:34:34 pm
I don't know if he will respond, but I sent Ausiello an e-mail that firstly, mentions the Great 8 Mandate and what it is, and also asking for a mailing address to which I may personally deliver some correspondence and incentive.  I am sure others have e-mailed him about season 8, but I just did it again anyway, to keep the information about the great 8 mandate flowing to his inbox. 
7  Gilmore Girls / General Discussion / Re: The Great8Mandate on: February 18, 2007, 07:38:23 pm
Hey, I live in New York City.  I can help with the delivery of Snapple cases.  In fact, if anyone knows at least where his building is, I will personally bring it to his door.

Hi GG602,

According to what I'm sure is a work address, his building is on Avenue of the Americas.  Is that near you? Smiley


    It is close, and either way, anywhere is NYC is close enough.  I am not sure exactly what you guys want to do, but if someone can put a plan in action, I can follow through here.  I assume you want to just send him the Snapple and some letters, right?

One more thing, while I have no objection to walking in the building and leaving the package at the door of his office, many (if not most or all) of the buildings in NYC (and I am sure other cities) have certain security measures, where guests of the building have to be checked in by the office they are going, or at least confiremd by a telephone call.  I can research it, but I would need to know beforehand if someone off the street can be signed into this building to deliver soemthing.   If not, it would at least be cheaper for me to get it delivered than someone from out of state or city.

Heidi, I live in New York. It might be cheaper for me to do it. Perhaps you could just send me via email/snail mail whatever you wanted me to send him for the writing part, and then I could run out and by some Snapple (the powder packs if they have them...) and send it under your name? Let me know. Where exactly in New York does he live? I'm in upstate New York, just south of Albany. But the city shouldn't be too far away for mail.
Or we could all send like $2 to Heidi, or however much we figure out shipping/buying the Snapple is?
I don't know if you all want to do this but I figured I might as well through it out there that I will do anything for an 8th season.

One thing I don't get. Why are Rory and Paris going through all these things? Rory exploring her options is one thing, but Paris was going to medical school. Wasn't she taking pre-med? And, Paris is so type A, anal retentive, why would she even be thinking of other directions or options? Realistically, Paris should not be bellydancing, she should be making charts for the best medical school and going crazy about that.

I don't think Paris was doing all of those things to explore her options in life. I think she was just trying to systematically get the full college experience, by participating in as many activities as she possibly could. And the academic things, like fixing eachother's resumes, were just scheduled amongst other things. I actually think that this system of doing as much as she can before she graduates is typical of Paris. She is very driven and focused, but she also knows that a good college experience is a well rounded one. I think this storyline is a nice throwback to when her mom made her attend the parties and dances in Chilton, and also when they first started Yale and she made it a point to go to the Harvard/Yale game. Even though she didn't stay, she took a picture as if they won and as if they lost. I don't think Paris is being derailed from her goal(s). She is just trying to pack in as much experience in as many things as she can, so she can say that she did stuff in college besides keep her head in her books. And the way she has everything scheduled is so: What is the point? But also, very smart and very Paris. And the multiple resume thing; I don't think Paris thought she would want to do any of those other things, but before you become a doctor, you need to pay bills somehow. Paris would know that having an undergrad degree doesn't guarantee a good job, and she might have to do random things. So she is preparing for every type of thing that she might have to do.
10  Episode Discussion / Season 7 / Re: 7.14 - Farewell, My Pet on: February 13, 2007, 06:48:04 pm
I think the acting in this episode (particularly Lauren and David) was the best so far this season. I like how their argument in the begining when they are in the Dragonfly room was not a typical TV argument, where things that should be said are left out. Chris explained that his cell phone was off and that's why he didn't come to the hospital. Lorelai explained why Luke was there and also, she later defended writing the character reference. I absolutely detest when there is dramatic irony in relationship drama. Why can't people always just tell eachother the whole story?

Anyway, the end was sad. When Lorelai was telling Chris that she wished she wanted to be with him, I think she convinced me that I wish I wanted her to be with him. It's so sad that they did have a relationship 20 years ago, and then they had a baby, parted ways, wound up back together, but still didn't make it through a marriage. Unfortunately, when you hold on to feelings from when you were just a child, and try to act on them when you are 40, things don't work out so smoothly. I also feel bad for GiGi. Lorelai would have been a great step-mother for her and a good role model. She would have grown up to be like Rory. She woud have been really lucky to have Lorelai and Rory in her life. Oh well, at least she is rich.
11  Episode Discussion / Season 7 / Re: 7.13 - I'd Rather Be in Philadelphia on: February 06, 2007, 08:05:13 pm
Doing some math in my head, here, and -
Rory says the CD is for Richard's 60th birthday, assuming he's a few years older than Emily and turned sixty THIS YEAR. Then Emily says he's been part of her life for 2/3, and something else, so I think she's sixty. Lorelai's almost 40, which means she had Lorelai at age 20, 21, 22 - no older than 22. Which means she is SO not one to talk about young pregnancy!
That's all. LOL.
yeah she might have been young but she was married

I don't remember what season it was, but there was an episode where Rory gave that record from this episode to Richard for what I thought was his 60th birthday.  If the episode is from season 2 or 3, which I think it is, that makes Richard about 65. 

But anyway, I wanted to comment on the great continuity in this episode - 1. The reference to the last time Richard was in the hospital, and 2. The record that Rory gave Richard years ago. 
12  Episode Discussion / Season 4 / Re: 4.05 - The Fundamental Things Apply on: February 06, 2007, 02:29:18 pm
I'm sure many of you know there was a MAD TV skit poking fun at Gilmore Girls about three years ago. The opening scene of this episode is what they based the skit on, and I was watcing it today in ABC Family, I actually thought it was pretty funny that they used this scene to mock.  Like the part where L and R lay in the grass on their backs.  Great show, but it can be extemely mockable sometimes. 

Anyway, I love this episode.  AI like all of the different small storylines that tie into bigger arcs. 
13  Gilmore Girls / Spoilers / Re: Discussion of Spoilers on: February 06, 2007, 08:49:50 am
Yeah, from the moment the spoiler about the fight and Lorelai not being able to reach Chris came out, I was thinking:  Chris probably doesn't even know Richard is in the hospital.  Lorelai probably kept calling him and he shut his phone off or he is just ignoring her calls and messages for now.  I bet the reason he comes to the hospital is because he finally finds out Richard is sick, and he goes, ready to make up.  But then Luke is there.  Eeek!
14  Gilmore Girls / General Discussion / Re: Q & A Thread: 'Cause It Ain't All GilmoreClear ... on: February 03, 2007, 09:14:03 pm

Ok,i have a couple of questions,silly ones...

Anywhere in the Luke/Lor relationship do they ever say i love you to each other? Im just wondering if i have missed it somehow.... lol
And if so,what episode/s has it been in?

Oh and has anyone got a list of all the best Luke/Lorelai orientated episodes? Like the ones they have a lot of interaction in,like getting back together,engaged and the like? I know its probably a big ask,but i just wanted to have a list so that i could pick one of them when im feeling down to watch that will cheer me up and not have to go through every episode all the time..

Thanks in advance if anyone can answer me!

I think the first time Lorelai says "I love you" to Luke is in "Partings." 
Good Luke/Lorelai interaction episodes are (in order):

Luke Can See Her Face - Season 4, episode 20, disc 5 (Luke realizes he has feelings for Lorelai and asks her to Liz's wedding)
Last Week Fights, This Week Tights - Season 4, episode 21, disc 6 (Luke and Lorelai dance romantically at the wedding)
Raincoats and Recipes - Season 4, episode 22, disc 6 (Lorelai debates the status of her and Luke, and they share thier first kiss)
Say Goodbye to Daisy Miller - Season 5, episode 1, disc 1 (Lorelai and Luke talk about the beginnings of their relationship)
A Messenger, Nothing More - Season 5, episode 2, disc 1 (Luke returns home and their relationship begins)
Written in the Stars -  Season 5, episode 3, disc 1 (Luke and Lorelai have their first real date)
Wedding Bell Blues              These four here are all on the same disc (season 5, disc 4) and chronicle the first L/L breakup-makeup.
Say Something                   They might not necessarily all make you happy, but by the end of the disc you will be.
Jews and Chinese Food         
So...Good Talk                   
A House is Not a Home - Season 5, episode 22, disc 6 (Lorelai asks Luke to marry her)
The New and Improved Lorelai Gilmore - Season 6, episode 1, disc 1 (Lorelai and Luke celebrate their engagement)

As far as I am concerned, this is where the good L/L relationship episodes end.  And don't worry, it wasn't a big deal to do because I had it all in my memory!!! These are my favorite episodes!

new 01/31 - Shortly after my item ran, a Gilmore insider, confided to me that the engagement/pregnancy plot has been scaled back. "They will not be that far along in a relationship by May," my spy revealed. "There will be progress, but she won't be pregnant or engaged in the season or series finale as of now." Source: Ask Ausiello @ TV Guide

I hate to think what this means for alot of people if the series ends this year.
