Did You Know?


When the teacher re-introduces Brad Langford (Adam Wylie) to the rest of the class, she mentions that he is returning after a run on Broadway in "Into the Woods". Wylie actually did perform with the Broadway cast of "Into the Woods". See more »


When the class is dismissed, Rory stars to talk with Brad and then Paris comes into the scene and moves on to write her name in the list of people who are entering to the Chilton Bicentennial. When she grabs the pencil, she takes about a second to write her name. It's impossible to write "Paris Geller" that fast. See more »


Rory Gilmore: Any chance you could go faster?
Lorelai Gilmore: Yeah, you got a girl's future in that sack of yours. Santa...
Rory Gilmore: Thank you for adding the Santa.
