I believe that show is based on friendship and family, because it is about a mother and daughter's relationship with each other.  What do you guys think?

I think they all play a major role, but I would have to agree with you that friendship and family dominate the show. However, I also think that school plays a very important role. Friday night dinners came to be because of Chilton and that became a central plot line. Also, Rory droppping out of Yale was a big deal.

I agree, I think that school has always played a major role, and as the show progressed, school became even more important.

All of the above are significant, but I'd say Family.  This is why, as ASP had said, the show could continue (beyond her original thought of ending when Rory graduated college), because it was, bottom line, about relationships, about family.

Definitely family!

We learn and accept that not all families are perfect, people are human and thus make LOTS of mistakes, and that love between a mother and her child is the most pure love of all.....

Of course it family because... well.. it's about a mother and daughter but I think it is also about friendship b/c without the friendship.... they would be just like any mother and daughter.... not Lorelai and Rory!

I think it is mostly about love, but love on different levels, and not just as in man/woman love...

Of course this is a major part, but i think it's also about the love in a family, love between friends and love of life in general...

So I guess I am cheating a little bit since I'm making Love cover family and friends as well... SO to sum it up I think that Love, Friendship and Family are the three pillars of the show... School and work are just the surroundings made for the interactions in Love, Friendship and Family to play out Wink

I like 'Independence' as a theme of the show. Not being free of obligations, but free to make your own choices and never force someone else to make you happy.

Or 'keep talking.' That's a pretty prevalent theme.

The first episode was all about talking. The 'girls' were having their first real fight because Rory couldn't tell Lorelai about Dean and Lorelai couldn't tell Rory about her money problem. And it wasn't enough for Emily that Lorelai was grateful and owed them. She was smart enough to insist that they talk as well.

Family and friends, because it is all abut rorys and lorelais relationship (after all its called gilmore Girls) and they are friends and family.  although friends first and mother and daughter second like she says to emily during the episode where they are at the spa for a weekend
