Did You Know?


At the end of the previous episode, "Welcome to the Dollhouse", when the doorbell rang Lorelai says "Oh, that's my pizza" when it was actually her father. But at the beginning of the episode, when Lorelai is talking to Luke about Rory's 21st birthday and her dad, she says she's ordering a pizza because she's hungry - this would be unnecessary if one were already on the way.
