Using the Dragonfly's practice weekend, Lorelai gets her parents to admit they've separated. Meanwhile Luke, doing everything by the book, feels like an idiot when it looks like Jason and Lorelai are...
Rory gets a job following the presidential campaign of one of the candidates running for president. While she prepares to leave in a mere three days, Lorelai adjusts to the idea that she may not see ...
New Yorker and new doctor Zoe Hart accepts an offer from a stranger, Dr. Harley Wilkes, to work in his medical practice in Bluebell, Alabama. She arrives to find he has died and left half the practice to her in his will.
At one point Jason (Chris Eigeman) sarcastically states that he's a hologram. Eigeman played Arnold Rimmer in the first pilot of the ill-fated Red Dwarf (1992) (a version of the British sit-com Red Dwarf (1988)). The character of Rimmer is a hologram. See more »
Sets which should be somewhat permanent change, especially in early seasons. The foyer of Lorelai and Rory's house in S1 does not open to the living room, but it does for subsequent seasons. Luke's apartment changes frequently, with the bathroom moving from one side of the apartment in S1 to the other in S2. The cash register in the diner switches from one end of the counter to the other regularly in the first couple of seasons. The elder Gilmore's house changes as well. These are in addition to very large changes from pilot to series. See more »
Rory is very low maintenance. Kind of like that robot kid in A.I., only way less mother-obsessed. Oh my God, that kid was so annoying. I would've pushed him out of the car while it was still moving.

OK, I admit it... I started to watch this show because I knew my favorite actor, Scott Cohen, was going to be a guest star. (My family tapes the episodes and sends them to me here.) I fully intended to stop watching it after his appearances were done. But, somewhere along the line I found myself enjoying the show even when Scott wasn't a guest star. The writing is absolutely wonderful. Lorelei's verbal comebacks are some of the best I've ever heard -- her verbal banter with Max in the coffee shop scene of the Cinnamon's Wake episode is one of my favorite scenes. It's warm, funny, serious, and just all-round enjoyable. Lauren Graham is perfect as Lorelei, and special kudos go to Alexis Bledel as Rory... for a first time actress, she's done a marvelous job. I very much enjoy Kelly Bishop and Edward Hermann as Lorelei's parents. And Max... well, I think I'd like him even if he wasn't played by my favorite actor :). My thanks to Scott Cohen -- if he hadn't been on this show, I would have missed something very special.
