Countdown to Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life – 2 Days Left – Part 2

Written by M.



Here’s Crash Course Lesson #29

The Gilmore Guide to Season 7

As the Emmy-winning series featuring a strong and loving mother-daughter relationship reaches its seventh and final season, Lorelai and Rory turn to each other for support. Will their relationships and dreams come to fruition? With a colorful cast of characters, life in Stars Hollow is anything but dull. As the season unfolds, Lorelai’s relationship with Luke may be over now that she has let Christopher, Rory’s father, come between them again. Even so, Lorelai and Luke still have to coexist in tiny, close-knit Stars Hollow with the town’s watchful eyes on them and their charged history.

Meanwhile, Rory will attempt to keep her long-distance romance with Logan alive, even though communication has never been their strong suit and London is far away. Rory now begins her senior year at Yale and continues as the editor of the Yale daily paper.

Take it away Kirk!

Episode 1 – The Long Morrow

Paris: She’s got a C-Average which means she’s either lazy or stupid. I can work with either. Frankly stupid’s sometimes easier, I can scare the stupid out of you but the lazy runs deep.

Luke: Hell, you were going so fast-
Lorelai: Yeah, that’s me! I’m fast…I’m the perfect storm of caffeine and genetics. Ha!

Lorelai: This pile is Luke’s stuff. This pile is stuff that reminds me of Luke.
Rory: What’s that pile?
Lorelai: That’s Babette’s intimates.
Rory: Oh. Of course.

Episode 2 – That’s What You Get, Folks, for Makin’ Whoopee

[Luke argues with Kirk at the latter’s makeshift outdoor diner.]
Luke: You’re gonna sue me, after you crash a car into my diner and bust a giant hole in my wall?!
Kirk: For all you know, I could have brain damage.
Luke: Oh, I’m pretty sure you do.

Episode 4 – ‘S Wonderful, ‘S Marvelous

Lorelai[in disbelief] We have to go. We have to pick up my mother. From jail.
Christopher[laughs] Your mother’s in jail?
Lorelai: Ohhhh, this night keeps getting better and better.

Episode 5 – The Great Stink

Lorelai: It’s just no saying killer, no saying whack, no saying rockin’ or pimpin’ or slamming, capisce?
Christopher: Fo’ shizzle.
Lorelai: There’s gotta be an eject button here somehwere…

Episode 6 – Go, Bulldogs!

Lorelai: Who wears a nametag in the middle of their chest?
Christopher: Superman
Lorelai: Superman wears an emblem
Christopher: So, this is my emblem.
Lorelai: “Hello I’m Rory Gilmore’s dad, Christopher” is your emblem?
Christopher: Yeah.
Lorelai: I’m going to have to ask you to walk 50 feet in front of me.

Episode 11 – Santa’s Secret Stuff

Gigi: The redcoat is here!

Christopher: Ah, mistletoe.
Lorelai: Where are you going with that?
Christopher: I’m going to hang it up in the doorway.
Rory: Oh, that’s not where it goes… We tape it up to one of the blades of the ceiling fan upstairs. That way the kissing is more like a sport. It’s one of our traditions.

Lorelai: Because my brain is a wild jungle full of scary gibberish. “I’m writing a letter. I can’t write a letter. Why can’t I write a letter? I’m wearing a green dress. I wish I was wearing my blue dress. My blue dress is at the cleaners’. ‘The Germans wore gray, you wore blue.’ Casablanca. Casablanca’s such a good movie. Casablanca. The White House. Bush. Why don’t I drive a hybrid car? I should really drive a hybrid car. I should really take my bicycle to work. Bicycle, unicycle, unitard, hockey puck, rattlesnake monkey monkey underpants.”

Episode 12 – To Whom It May Concern

Sookie: God, I hope we have a girl. Oooh! Or a Boy!
Lorelai: Chances are pretty good you’ll have one or the other.

Episode 14 – Farewell, My Pet

Episode 15 – I’m a Kayak, Hear Me Roar

Emily: You’re independent. You provide for yourself.
Lorelai: I am kayak. Hear me roar.

Episode 18 – Hale Bale Maze

Michel: Ah. Whatever.
Sookie: Michel. People stopped saying “whatever” five years ago.
Michel: Whatever. I’m outie 5000.

Tomorrow this crash course will end with lesson #30, in which I’ll go into all the things we know about the new episodes.
