The scene where Madeline Albright is Rory's mother (in Rory's dream) is word-for-word the conversation Lorelai had with Rory in the season 1 episode "Rory's Birthday Parties". See more »


At the beginning of the party Rory and Emily are talking when Logan enters and Emily becomes uncomfortable. She excuses herself from the conversation and exits saying, "I have to go check on your cake." Emily exits towards the foyer even though when the camera cuts back to Rory and Logan talking the cake is clearly visible behind them, not in the foyer, and Emily is nowhere to be seen. See more »


Rory: My mom and I have been planning for my 21st birthday since... well, my first memory is kindergarten, but I have a feeling she was talking about it before that. We had this whole big thing planned.
