Here’s hoping that’s true!
All we can say is Someday, Someday Maybe.

Ple-he-he-hehe-he-hease!!!

I’ve literally been broadcasting it to everyone I know, reminding them that they soon will be able to watch the greatest show ever instantly very soon.

I’ve been annoying everyone in my household because I won’t shut up about it.
Me: Gilmore Girls is FINALLY coming to Netflix!!! How awesome is that?
Them: Haven’t you seen all the seasons…multiple times?
Me: Yes.
Them: And don’t you own them on DVD?
Me: Yes.
Them: Which you’re currently re-watching…??
Me: Yes!
Them: So why are you so excited?
Me: [slams head onto table in frustration]
Clearly they’re not comprehending my level of excitement here. Or my obsessive adoration for this show.

Same here! Everyone is always saying don’t you own the DVDs? And I just. You. Don’t. Understand. This. Could. Lead. To. A. Movie

If they make a movie, I may need to be revived when I hear the news. Too. Much. Excitement.

Emily: You have a gentleman friend of significance.

Lorelai: Rhett is my gentleman friend, yes.

Emily: So it’s only proper that you introduce him to your mother. Unless he’s insignificant; I don’t want to meet a passing ship. That’s a waste of my time. Is Luke a passing ship? Is he insignificant?

Lorelai: No, he’s not

Emily: I’ll get my book and we will pick a date next week.

Lorelai: Mom -

Emily: Next week.

Lorelai: I -

Emily: Next week.

(She goes to get her book.)

Rory: Honk if Emily Gilmore views your mind as her personal playground.

Lorelai: Honk, honk.

Gilmore Girls 5x07, You Jump, I Jump Jack

What I learned from this episode: People who have “honk if you love [insert what you love here]” bumper stickers don’t actually want you to honk. If you do honk, you might just find yourself on the dangerous side of road-ragers. (Anger is good for no driver, friends!) Or, they might “slow to a crawl” in front of you “just for revenge.”

Remember how I said Rory would do anything to uncover the mystery surrounding the Life and Death Brigade? This episode proves it. Logan agrees to help her with her article, but only if she agrees to conditions before knowing what the conditions entail. Enter: kidnap plot. Yes, you heard me right, kidnap plot. Rory receives a cryptic note taped to her window telling her to appear in the lobby wearing a blindfold, whereby she’s promptly snatched and placed in a car with Logan, Colin, Finn, and gorilla-mask-girl. Headed for a destination unknown.

After they reach their destination, Logan removes the blindfold and allows Rory to survey her surroundings—which she finds to be populated with woods and elaborate tents. The guests wear period clothing and sip flouts of delicious champagne, engaging in accented conversation where they refuse to speak the letter “e.” It isn’t until the next day, however, that the Big Event is revealed: bungee jumping from a high structure in formal wear.

With Finn out of the jumping line-up, a spot remains open among the jumpees. And Logan offers it to Rory. Though she’s initially hesitant, Logan convinces her to take a chance and he grabs her hand before they float towards the ground together. “That was a once in a lifetime experience,” Rory says when they land. “Only if you want it to be,” Logan adds. This may be an unpopular opinion, but I think Logan is good for Rory at this point in her life. Though I prefer her with Jess above all, I like Logan in the interim because he forces her out of her comfort zone, encouraging her to take risks she’s too coy to try by herself. She needs someone to crack open that sheltered safe house she still cowers under, showing her that half the beauty of life lies in the unplanned and spontaneous.

Also, if you don’t feel awful for Luke in this episode, then I’m convinced you have no heart. The poor man must suffer through cold civility with Emily and pompous parading around the country club with Richard. Yet, both Gilmores make an effort to “get to know” Lorelai’s new love interest. (Despite already knowing him.) It’s horrible to hear/watch how Richard and Emily degrade him with their snobbery and uppity judgments, completely disregarding his finer qualities like his kindness, loyalty, and stability, but I’m so glad that Luke sticks to his resolve to “meet the folks.” Granted, I think he regrets this decision after one too many whiskeys with Richard…but he’s a strong dude. Pliable and resilient. Congratulations, Luke Danes, you’ve just been Gilmored! (And you survived.)

Chris: Well, some sit down.

Rory: No, I can’t stay.

Chris: Okay.

Rory: I don’t want you calling Mom anymore.

Chris: What?

Rory: I want you to stay away from her.

Chris: Rory, I –

Rory: Mom’s in a relationship now, and she’s doing really great. He’s kind, and, well, he’s there. And she’s happy.

Chris: I think that’s great, Rory. I –

Rory: You’ll mess it up! You’ll mess everything up! Because every time you come back, it always ends up the same way. Mom’s crying and you’re not being there and I know it’s not your fault, I know you don’t mean it to be that way, but that’s how it is.

Chris: I just needed some help. That’s all.

Rory: Well, next time you need help, call a nanny, or a babysitter, or call me. Just leave Mom alone. I’m sorry, I have to go. Kiss Gigi for me.

Gilmore Girls 5x06, Norman Mailer, I’m Pregnant

To preface this episode, I’d like to start by saying that Kirk dresses up as a giant hot dog. Wait, no. Weiner. The costume tag says “weiner.” Sorry, Kirk…my apologies! I’d also like to add that I’m so glad he thought the “kiesch made [him] look fat” because Kirk in a weiner costume is priceless…especially when you watch him waddle from the curb to the street. Ha!

Moving on, Zach finally reaches his processing limit and makes a decision…he wants to date Lane! Yay! Claps hands in excitement. They arrange their first date for later that evening, with them both emerging from their prospective bed chambers looking refined and glamorous (per the “look nice for your first date” rule). Opting for a low maintenance outing, they decide to finish a film they started the night before—meaning they don’t even leave their apartment—only to have Brian plop down in between them when he comes home. They quickly explain that they’re “on a date” and Lane offers Brian use of her room so she and Zach can share some alone time. Their chill evening ends with a goodnight kiss…with Brian asleep and dangling around Zach’s shoulders. ¡Qué romántico!

As for Rory, she finds herself struggling to find a topic for an interesting feature story for the Yale Daily News. That is, until she finds herself sharing the same bathroom with a gorilla-mask-wearing, ball-gown-adorned mystery girl. With the reporter mind-set she possesses, Rory follows the girl outside and watches as she climbs into an expensive SUV while shouting, “In Omnia Paratus!” Lo and behold, our girl’s found herself a story! With some investigation, she finds that the phrase is linked to a Yale secret society called the Life and Death Brigade and that Logan Huntzberger is one of the members. And she’ll do anything to uncover the mystery that surrounds this group. Watch out, Logan. Ace is on your trail.

Now, what about that parting scene between Rory and Christopher? Talk about a giant fist to the gut…just ouch! On the one hand, as a father, that’s a harsh bit of truth to be dealt to you by your child. On the other, I think it’s past due. I cheer on my girl Rory for summoning the confidence, not to mention the repressed anger and disappointment, to tell her father that he hasn’t been there…to his face. Not only does she do this to secure her mother’s happiness, but I think a small part of her does it for her own sake as well. Rory finally finds the courage to point out that Christopher hasn’t been there for her as a father. (Luke’s been a much more permanent fixture in her life, to be honest.) She knows “it’s not his fault,” but it still hurts that he’s played this absentee role. And I don’t think she wants history to repeat itself with Gigi. So, Christopher, it’s time to face the facts: You haven’t been there. Someone else has. And that’s a harsh truth to swallow…

Lorelai: I’m sorry I’m late. Traffic was bad. Some moron coming out of Stars Hollow decided to go the speed limit, which is — ooh! [she stares into the foyer] What the hell is that?

[A large metal boxlike structure stands in the center of the room.]

Emily: What does it look like? It’s a panic room.

Lorelai: Like Jodie Foster?

Emily: I have no idea.

Lorelai: But it’s very small. It’s more like an anxiety room.

Emily: It’s for one person.

Lorelai: Huh?

Emily: You could maybe squeeze two in.

[Lorelai approaches the large object and begins fussing with it. Opening the door and looking inside]

Lorelai: And when those two are done panicking, the next couple of panickers get a turn?

Gilmore Girls 5x05, We Got Us a Pippi Virgin

Can we please take a moment to appreciate Emily Gilmore? There’s nothing like spending a fortune on a self-contained panic box to place in the middle of your foyer, right? (Accidental, though, the placement of it is.) I can’t help but laugh at the thought. But you never know, I could wake up tomorrow and say, “I think I’ll buy a panic box today…just to be safe.” In Emily’s case, the only panicked cry we’re hearing from her is a cry for her estrangement from Richard to end. And we hear you loud and clear, Emily!

In other developments, it takes Lane (and us as viewers) almost an entire episode to realize that Zach is just processing, not ignoring Lane’s I-like-you declaration. The first time I saw this, I didn’t know what to make of his behavior. Upon many re-watches, however, I’ve found that I like the time and energy Zach spends on deciphering this piece of news from his fellow band mate. Don’t many of us girls wish that guys would spend more time thinking before they reacted? I know I would.

In another part of Stars Hollow, it’s Double Date night. And what an awkward, uncomfortable, HORRIBLE double date it turns out to be for the Gilmore Girls. The Dean-Rory-Lorelai-Luke foursome doesn’t gel as seamlessly as it once did…perhaps a not-so-subtle sign that the Rory-Dean saga is all too passe? Everything between them feels forced and bizarre, which is highlighted by Luke’s disgruntled behavior towards Dean. “Does he need to be all over her like that?” he asks Lorelai during the movie. Even a fun game of Bop-It can’t ease the tension between Dean and Luke. In fact, it makes it worse.

Additional note: I LOVE when Luke’s father gene kicks in and he becomes uber-protective of Rory. He really is like her second dad. Of all present, he’s the one most clear-sighted about the fact that Dean no longer belongs in Rory’s world, believing he’s not good enough for her. I love Luke’s response when Lorelai asks what guy Rory should be with: “No, not Jess. A prince, maybe. One that’s in line to be king. Not one of those waiting-for-a-brother-to-die ones, but a real one. If not a prince, someone who’s gonna be good for her…[Or] she can have adventures and be free, she’s smart. The whole world’s waiting for her.” This is something a real father (not Christopher, mind you) would say, no? So as much as I love Ranting Luke, I like Almost Father Luke just as much.

P.S. This episode gives me so many Gilmore-Danes family feels!

P.P.S. It’s a shame when Bop-It can’t save the night. :(
