Did You Know?


The recipe for Rory's signature drink (The Rory) is the same as for a flirtini (champagne, vodka, pineapple juice) with grenadine added for a pink coloring. See more »


At the end of the previous episode, "Welcome to the Dollhouse", Lorelai said "Oh, that's my pizza" when the doorbell rang, expecting a delivery boy - not her father. At the beginning of this episode, however, when her father has left and Lorelai is talking to Luke on the porch, she says she's ordering a pizza because she's hungry. This would be unnecessary if one were already on the way. See more »


Richard: She's having sex, Lorelai. She's having sex under my roof. I paid $40,000 to redecorate her sex house. I bought her a sex mattress. Her sex box springs. I provided everything she needs to waste her life.
Lorelai: Dad, Rory having sex is not your fault. Really, she was having sex way before the big renovation.
Richard: I feel so much better now.
