Lorelai Gilmore: I just wanted to tell you that there was no mistake with your Yale check.
Richard Gilmore: There wasn't?
Lorelai Gilmore: No um, they sent you back your check because Yale has already been paid for.
Emily Gilmore: By whom?
Lorelai Gilmore: By Christopher.
Emily Gilmore: Christopher who?
Lorelai Gilmore: Christopher Isherwood. That "cabaret" money was burning a hole in his pocket. You know what Christopher, mom... His grandfather passed away recently and left him some money and he just wanted to do something for Rory. He's trying to be a dad for once. I thought it seemed like a good idea.

One of The Bes Episodes of Gilmore Girls Ever
7 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode has everything Gilmore Girls is famous for: witty dialog and MANY pop culture references. Firstly: Rory and Lorelai's lunch at Yale is HILAIOUS. The references to bridges of Madison County and Mozart pushed it to the top. Secondly: Lorelai's story before they enter the Gilmore house is HILARIOUS! and Finally: THE DINNER the way they were fighting with each other then Rory with Emily and Richard and Lorelai are calm then Richard and Emily fight then they're all laughing is AWESOME. then when Lorelai and Rory exit they look so fluttered and it just made me laugh.

all in all a Ten out of Ten!
