  • Elvis Costello and Woodbury

Rory: Her mom’s at an antique fair in Woodbury until Sunday, and her grandmother’s staying with her but she’s asleep by six so we thought we’d be really bad and sneak out to Luke’s.

  • Lorelai is astonished at Michel’s great relationship with his mother. She finds it difficult to fathom someone having such a close relationship with their mother, given her relationship with her own mother. Though, Lorelai and Rory have an extremely close relationship. Why then was it such a foreign concept to her?

  • At the loansolution.com/payday-loans-pa beginning of this episode, Emily tells Richard that in no uncertain terms would they begin supper without him. That in thirty seven years of marriage she had never started dinner without him. That however is not true. Earlier in the season, in the episode “Hammers and Veils,” Emily, who is upset with her daughter for not sharing her upcoming engagement with her, starts dinner without him claiming that they need to be finished early because he has a 6 am flight.

  • When Rory and Lane are talking, Dean stops them to talk to Rory. Rory’s hair then changes several times. First, the back of her hair is pushed up on her right shoulder, but a split second later, it’s straight down her back. Later in the scene, Rory’s hair is gently flying backwards because of the wind, but the very next time the camera is on her, the wind has stopped and her hair is back to being straight. Unless Rory fixed her hair after the wind blew, it wouldn’t have been straight. Finally, her hair also changes from all of it being behind her hair, to some of it, then all of it, and so on.

  • The phone and answering machine are on the table with the monkey lamp in this episode. In every other episode they are on the table by the stairs.

At the beginning of this episode Lorelai and Rory notice how Luke’s specials board now says Luke’s Special Omelette and Rory, looking very distressed, says it has not been changed from ‘Four Slice French Toast’ since she was born. She’s being utterly silly and facetious, of course. In ‘Hammers and Veils’ after their Friday Night Dinner in Luke’s you can clearly see that the specials board says ‘Meatloaf, Mac Cheese, BBQ Burger.’ Further, Lorelai and Rory did not move to Stars Hollow and meet Luke until Rory was around 8.

  • Michel gets mad because Lorelai tells Giselle that he never eats pasta, carbs, etc. During his rant, Michel says that he keeps topics with his mother light: clothes, food, beauty products. Wouldn’t Michel’s no-carb lifestyle fall under the category of food?

  • On the way into the second Friday night dinner in this episode, Lorelai jokes that Richard gets taller when he gets mad, using the example of when she told him she was pregnant. But in season 1 episode 6 “Rory’s Birthday Parties,” she told Rory that when she told her parents she was pregnant, “It was the only time they ever looked…small to me.”

  • Lorelai’s Book List: Motley Crue by Seamus Craic
