Gilmore Girls Hello

:: Gilmorealong: Season One | Episode 03

You know what it’s time for! Let’s break down Episode 3!  Tell me if you watch! Tag any related images on Instagram with #gilmorealong so we can see! Let’s do this thing!

Episode Title: Kill Me Now

After you watch: Things I noted/liked

This is the one where Rory and Richard play golf together, much to the chagrin of Lorelai (mostly because Emily engineered it). It’s also the one where Lorelai plans the twins’ wedding at The Independence Inn.
I wish I had been tracking the maids’ names. Dang. #notetoself
This ep is produced by Jenji Kohan (of Orange Is The New Black and Weeds fame) – she also produced Episode 2 of this Season and a bunch more (as well as producing AND writing the upcoming Episode 7).
Lilac tulle for weddings? Fantastic.
The brides-to-be are wearing their sweaters around their necks in the weirdest way.
I’d love to talk more about Emily’s flower arrangements some day soon…
Rory and Richard really start to get to know each other in this ep. It’s really cute.
There are many man-boobs.
Kirk- MICK shows up again. This time with swans. #attackedbyabandofswans
Rory is SO extra beautiful and sparkly eyed in this episode.
Whenever I see mustard and ketchup on a table I pine for a burger or hotdog. It’s a thing.
Poor Lorelai.
Sookie chasing Jackson is really funny.
Miss Patty’s dance moves at the wedding are amazing

    I’d like to know who decided on that hat that Rory wore while playing golf! The style fine, but the colors?? I loved the 2 old guys that sit with Richard, complaining about how some guy used his cart, when everyone knows it’s his cart!

    Just watched the episode. I love it when Jackson find Sookie looking at strawberries and she chases him around town, haha. I also think this episode is sweet because it’s when Rory and her grandpa first really get close and get to know one another, and they have such a sweet relationship. 🙂

    p.s. Pip, I had this funny dream that you were visiting my nearby city so we met at a cute coffee shop and had coffee and talked crafts. Ha! 🙂

    Sookie chasing Jackson is hilarious! I feel sad for Lorelai in this ep. Her mother really is nasty.

    I feel bad for Loreali in this Ep as she seems so lonely/ the odd one out in her family at the very end. Also the fact that Emily is a little snippy and rubs it in her face.

    I love Sookie and Jackson. They are so perfect, crazy and wacky together. I miss Lane but she’s probably at bible study or passing out religious flyers for her mother.

    I love the scene where Loreali brings the left over blueberry shortcake. The look on Emily’s face is hilarious. It really shows Lorelai’s character and how free spirited she is. She is welcome at my house any time with used dessert.

    Watching this RIGHT NOW! Possibly my fave episode ever, because of the adorable Rory-Richard golf date. I have always found those scenes so sweet and charming.
    Also, one of the best Michel lines EVER “to me you are the teacher in a charlie brown cartoon.”. Gold. Just gold.
