Did You Know?


When Rory and Logan arrive at the bar and the friends start singing, you can see Rory's skin between her shirt and her jeans. In the next shot you can see that her undershirt has been pulled down and is now covering her skin. It's the only episode of the whole show in which Lorelai and Rory don't talk to each other at all - and don't share a single scene. In season 4, ep. 14 (The incredible shrinking Lorelais), they didn't share a scene but they were at least trying to call each other on the phone. Complement: actually, this the only season in which Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel don't share a single line in several episodes (6x01, 6x03, 6x05, 6x06 and 6x08). In the Season 5 finale, Taylor says that the bike race was supposed to end at noon, and that it was 10 pm at the moment. When the season 6 premiere starts, it's a continuation of the same scene, but Taylor says "I've been waiting 6 hours for this race to end." but according to the last episode, he'd been waiting 10 hours. Rory does not appear until approximately 15 minutes into this episode. That is the longest time it has taken her to show up in any episode of the series. See more »


When Paris arrives she repeatedly asks Luke who he is and then when Lorelai asks if they've met they say no. They actually met before when Rory was at Chilton and Paris came to the diner looking for a seedy story about Stars Hollow. See more »


Emily Gilmore: [to Rory, who is asleep in bed in the pool house at 8:30] Good morning! You're still sleeping? My goodness, you're young, these are the good days. There's plenty of time to sleep when you've gone up a couple of dress sizes.
