Following on from last week’s Pilot Episode Gilmorealong, here’s a little breakdown of Episode 2! Tell me if you watch! Tag any related images on Instagram with #gilmorealong so we can see!
The Lorelai’s First Day At Chilton
After you watch: Things I noted/liked
Lorelai and Rory are still so grumpy with each other. I like it better when they are NICE to each other! (Once Rory finishes her first day at Chilton things warm up. Phew).
Lane doesn’t wave to Lorelai and Rory when they drive past Stars Hollow High. I think she WOULD have.
Paris makes her first appearance. Yay! (As do Madeleine and Louise).
We hear Rory talk about her Christiane Amanpour aspirations for the first time.
The REAL Luke’s Diner makes its first appearance.
Drella the harpist. I’m not sure what happens to her later on, but it seems like they wanted her to be a regular character in this ep.
Lorelai vs Michel is off and running
Sookie vs Jackson is off and running too!
Luke and Lorelai have a cute exchange in Luke’s.
Kirk makes his first appearance, but he’s not called Kirk! He’s called Nick and he’s the DSL guy.
No Friday night dinner in this ep, because they haven’t yet started.
Paul Frank pyjama top! How retro. In a former incarnation I sold about a zillion of these!
Cut-off shorts WITH side splits = laundry day. Team with cowboy boots to complete the look. Red metallic hair bobble! Add a coat if you’re shy!
Flirty short-skirted business suit
Jeans, orange t-shirt and super boring coat. Geez, Lorelai.
Chilton uniform, saddle shoes (they’re so cute, right?) and BabyG watch
Jeans and a really boring zip-thru. Oh Rory.
‘Foxy’ zip-thru jacket (which she takes off and gives to Rory for safe-keeping). She’s also possibly wearing cords.

A few fave lines
Emily: Do you need a ride or is your horse parked outside?
Miss Patty: Keep those leotards on! This is not Brazil!
Lorelai: A pizza for your thoughts.
Michel: There’s a phone call for you, and if I’m to fetch you like a dog, I’d like a cookie and a raise.
Rory: Wow, biblical insults. This really is an advanced school.
Lorelai: Angry chicks are the worst.
