Trivia

In this episode, Richard and Alan were talking about work and they were complaining about some co-worker named Henry, who Richard thinks is in London with some "cheap tramp" and will ruin an contract negotiation. Later on in the episode, there is a scene outside of Stars Hallow High with a bell choir. The director is having a hard time with a bell ringer named Henry who keeps ringing at the wrong time. Both times the name Henry is associated with people who are ruining things. See more »

Goofs

At the hospital after Richard is returned to his room and Lorelai is avoiding going into the room, the boom mic drops into the scene as she says, "You know what hurts? A screwdriver in your head." See more »

Quotes

[Richard collapsed at Christmas dinner due to angina, and is now trying to have a serious talk with her as he lays in the hospital]
Richard Gilmore: Emily, listen to me: if I die--
Emily Gilmore: No!
Richard Gilmore: Emily.
Emily Gilmore: Richard Gilmore, there may be many things happening in this hospital tonight, but your dying is not one of them.
Richard Gilmore: But--
Emily Gilmore: No! I did not sign on to your dying. And it is not going to happen. Not tonight, not for a very long time. In fact, I demand to go first. Do I make myself clear?
Richard Gilmore: [tenderly] Yes, Emily. You may go first.

The One Where Richard Is In The Hospital...
6 September 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoy this episode. It's pretty good. Although it's not one of my all-time favorite episodes from the series, or even this season, it's still worth a watch.

In this episode, Richard is rushed to the hospital after collapsing at the annual Gilmore Christmas Party. Of course, Lorelai wasn't invited, and was with Luke at the time. It turns out that Richard had a heart attack, and Luke generously offers to take Lorelai to the hospital to see her father. Lorelai wished that she that the next time she'd see her parents would be under good circumstances, but unfortunately, it wasn't.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
