The weekly Friday night dinners with the Gilmores are definitely one the greatest parts of the series... So, what are your most memorable and why? Even though it's a short one I love in season 4 "The Nanny and the Professor" (The historical society tour Lorelai: :what:"I don't have a ticket!?" Richard: "We are not actors!" "Now the old man's just baiting me!" Richard is on fire in this scene ;D

Also memorable is Rory's planned building at Yale. "Is this to scale!? Lorelai just going along with the whole thing is hilarious."Relax rory, remember when you wanted a personalised license plate? so much better" and then when Lorelai and Christopher team up :highfive: when he realizes his being set up with Linny. Emily is in fine form "It's almost like looking at a shampoo ad" "Lorelai, are you having some sort of breakdown?":D Nope, she's just being her usual hyper-active self.

I watched the Nanny and the professor recently and agree it is a great scene. I also like (around the same time in the storyline) when Digger gets himself an invite to dinner by implying he has a dirty foodtruck burger waiting for him and Emily is so desperate to stop him from staying that she commends the merits of a dirty burger :)

Yeah, I love the flirtatious bet they have going for Jason to befriend Emily & Lorelai's impressed look when he actually does it.

My favorite was the one where Emily convinced Lorelai that she'd had dinner with a Nazi in episode 1.05.

Read it!

That's a good one!  :D

"No dear, that was a joke" I love it when Emily plays along with Lorelai's humor instead of giving her the standard reprimanding "Lorelai!"
