Goofs

When Luke is getting Lorali coffee, he grabs the to-go cups. In the first shot, there are two cups together in his hand, then the shot changes and there is only one cup. Then the shot changes again and he is putting a lid on, and there are two cups again. See more »

Quotes

Lorelai Gilmore: We're not gonna have this fight in a flowery bedroom with dentists singing "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" in the background. It's too David Lynch!

The One Where The Gilmores Go The Harvard...
1 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. I love seeing Rory where she wants to go to college and to see her adapt so well to it.

In this episode, after Lorelia sneaks away with Rory in the middle of the night, to escape from her wedding, because she's not ready to get married, the girls end up at a bed and breakfast which is disturbing and not at all fun. They then end up going to Harvard University. The college Rory hopes she'll be attending in a couple of years. They tour the campus, telling fun facts about the college to each other. Rory sneaks into a lecture and really enjoys herself and can see herself attending there. After they leave, Lorelai decides to go ahead with her dream of someday opening her own inn.

Fun Fact: Masi Oka can be seen in the Harvard lecture.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
