It's Rory's birthday. She gets two parties. An elegant and horrible affair thrown by her grandmother and an informal fun party thrown by Lorelai.

When Rory goes to the college fair to get a new Harvard brochure, she is wearing Yale colors. This foreshadows her eventually choosing Yale over Harvard to go to school. See more
When Rory sits at Luke's with Lane and eats the coffee cake that Luke has made for her birthday (and that seems to be too light to be a coffee cake), she, Lane and the cake are shown from different angles during their conversation. But the cake looks slightly different each time. Once there is a piece missing, but from another angle it is complete again. Furthermore the piece on Rory's plate enlarges while she watches Dean ordering coffee. It would not have made sense for her to get a new piece because she has hardly eaten anything, and the old one had still been on the plate before the camera swung away. See more
