Storyline

Lorelai Gilmore, 32, has such a close relationship with her daughter Rory that they are often mistaken for sisters. Between Lorelai's relationship with her parents, Rory's new prep school, and both of their romantic entanglements, there's plenty of drama to go around. Written by lcheala@imdb.com

Trivia

The exterior "Midwest" sets, which incorporate Stars Hollows' town square, the Gazebo, Luke's Diner and Doosey's Market, are also featured prominently in The Dukes of Hazzard (1979). They can also be seen in a scene in the original theatrical version of The Music Man (1962). There are several subtle references to this fact, including in season 7, Rory's friend referring to Stars Hallow as the perfect small town where "you expect Harry Hill to come to town and con people into buying band instruments" and in season 1, episode 14 in Luke's when Taylor says, "We've got trouble my friends," to which Lorelai responds with, "Right here in River City."

Goofs

The gender of Babette's cat "Cinnamon" changes. In the first season "he" gets stuck under Babette's porch and she borrows cooking oil from the Gilmores. Later on, the cat dies and "she" is mourned by many of the townsfolk. See more »

Quotes

[Lorelai has to model in a charity event for Booster Club that her mother made her get involved in]
Lorelai: Ugh, they totally just snuck that modeling thing in.
Rory: Hmm, my mom's a model. Maybe you'll get to date Leonardo DiCaprio now.
Lorelai: Plus, now I have to plan the whole stupid thing.
Rory: Lorelai Gilmore. Nope, doesn't sound model-y enough. You need something that stands out more. How about Waffle. We could call you Waffle and say you're from Belgium.
Lorelai: [dialing on her cell phone] Okay, I'm crabby, I need to do ...

Funny and touching
15 February 2003 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The Gilmore girls is about a mother who had a daughter when she was 16. Now the daughter is 16 (in season 1) and they live like sisters. Sharing everything, trusting each other completely.

I like The Gilmore Girls but I am not sure why. The mother, named Lorelai (Lauren Graham), and the daughter, named Rory (short for Lorelai, played by Alexis Bledel), are both very beautiful women, they are both funny and they are charming in their own ways. There are some funny supporting characters, such as Luke (Scott Patterson). He and Lorelai like each, may be even love each other, but neither of them really acts on it. They have their little moments. There are some other supporting characters, most of them very funny, and with their won touching moments.

What I like the most I think is to see the relationship between the young mother and the daughter who is becoming an adult. The dialogue between them is quick, sharp, funny and sometimes touching as well. The band they have is beautiful. The Gilmore Girls makes you feel good so try it.
