I thought Emily's low point was giving Rory the cold shoulder when she tried to apologize. Her worst instincts took over, as they usually do. But i think she was reacting as a reflex from her dealings with Lorelai. And even though she did appear at the second party, i do not recall an apology coming from her lips. That would apparently be beyond her capabilities.

I agree that is a good point. What was the point in going if she and Richard were not going to be part of the party? I guess they went as a social obligation.

This is also one of my favorite episodes and I also struggled to come up with something to say. So, I'm kind of winging it.

With Emily, I love her character because there is so much to her (especially during season four, but another story for another time.) As cold as she can seem I can defiantly understand why she she feels the way she does. To her she spent a portion of the week planning Rory's birthday and making it spectacular. She did this because she cares about Rory. After all, if she did not care about Rory she would have simply sent an "obligation" gift. Then at the party, Rory yells at her and runs off to Lorelai's room. In Emily's world when you host a party you make a speech and keep the party going. Although, there was no proof of it actually happening Emily felt embarrassed at the party.  So, I guess my point is, there is reasoning to Emily's behavior and while watching Gilmore, I often wonder and feel sad that Emily and Lorelai can't work things out. This is the type of episode that really shows the differences of both of their lives and I love the ending. However, now that I think of it. I kind of wish Lorelai could forgive Emily for what Lorelai considers a trapped life. Then the two probably would not have such resentment to each others lives. Really, the Gilmore's just need a good dose of therapy, but we know how Emily feels about therapy.

I love the scene were Lorelai comes into Rory's room at 4:03am and tells Rory about the moment she was born. I was adopted and as a kid I would snuggle with my mom every Sunday and demand that she told me the story of how my family adopted me. It's always special have traditions like that. I also loved the scene at Friday Night Dinner were Emily tells Rory to put a post-it on the bowl she was eating pudding out of. Then of course you have to love the scene were Emily and Richard come to Lorelai's house - "Who the hell is knocking, this is a party, get your ass in here!" So much to love and so much development in this episode. One of the best.

Yes. They are married. It says on here. I had no clue they were married before today!

 Shocked OMG!!! I just looked at the link and he graduated from Kentridge HS. That is about 15 minutes away from my house and is a rival of the high school I graduated from. 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. Just really cool to think that someone with a well known name came from the town of Kent, Washington and it's surrounding area.

Just noticed the thread and I'm defiantly in. I really like this idea because it gives me a chance to discuss the older episodes and possibly have others reply. Funny thing is I started re watching season one a couple days ago, so I'm all caught up with you guys.

I've been doing banners for awhile now, but they have always been the same thing. I was experimenting with the layers and coloring features for this banner. Meant to put Valedictorian or a quote, but ran out of room.

Granted, but the reason it is new is because it does not run.

I wish I could go to and be successful at Harvard's business school (I prefer Yale, but Harvard has a better business school)
