Quotes

Lorelai: And I was screaming and swearing, and being surrounded as I was by a hundred prominent doctors, I just assumed there was an actual use for the cup of ice chips they gave me.
Rory: There wasn't.
Lorelai: But pelting the nurses sure was fun.
Rory: I love you, Mom.

The One With Two Birthday Parties...
14 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this episode. I honestly hate Emily in this episode, though, because she's so unreasonable. Rory wants to spend her birthday at home with her friends, but is forced to go to her Grandparents' house.

In this episode, it's Rory's 16th birthday, and sadly for her and Lorelai, it falls on a Friday. Because of this, Emily won't allow them to stay in Stars Hollow for the night, and force them to come to Friday Night Dinner. But when they arrive, Rory's acquaintances from school are there, and no one really cares that it's her birthday. After the night they go home to her real birthday party.

Fun Fact: We learn that Rory's birthday is October 8th.

Fun Fact: It's Rory's 16th birthday, but in the Pilot episode, Lorelai says she is already sixteen.

Best part of the episode: Rory's casual birthday party.

Worst part of the episode: Emily.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
