The perfect dress: elegant blush-silk tulle, in Lorelai's size and on sale -ideal for a wedding. The perfect mess: Lane, short tempered, belligerent and miserable since she broke up with Zach and moved back home.

[describing their choices of entertainment in Las Vegas]
Lorelai: Well, it came down to Journey without their original lead singer, INXS without their original lead singer, Queen without their original lead singer, The Supremes without Diana and, weirdly, the James Brown Band without James Brown.
Rory: But we wound up seeing Tony Danza, who was sublime!
Lorelai: Oh, the tap dancing!

different character...same actor
24 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was just watching an old episode of Gilmore Girls entitled, Here Comes the Son, where Jess goes to California to stay with his dad. Sherilyn Fenn plays Sasha, his dads girlfriend, and has a daughter named Lily. In the current season, she plays Anna Nardini, the mother of Luke's daughter, April??? Now that all of these TV shows are releasing past seasons on DVD, they should be careful about recasting actors as different characters...its very confusing!! Also, it reminds people that it is just a television show. I enjoy getting sucked in to the show and feeling like I am watching real peoples lives unfold. Just as a side note... I am glad Jess is gone! Rory is too good for him!
