Babette says that Faye owned a flower shop and Art owned a candy store, but later in the story says that after the split Faye quit making candy, obviously confusing the two. See more »


Lorelai: [Luke and Lorelai just sat down in a booth reserved for them in a restaurant] Aren't we supposed to let someone who works here seat us?
Luke: Not necessary.
Lorelai: Is this like a Mafia thing?
Luke: Excuse me?
Lorelai: The whole coming in, special table, "reserved" sign. Are we gonna have to whack someone before the soup course?
Luke: No, I fulfilled my whacking quota for the week.
[puts head down in embarrassment, then looks up at Lorelai]

Town Meeting
23 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good afternoon, This is a delayed response to finally watching all of the Gilmore Girls seasons from beginning to now. I noticed that in this episode (season 5, episode #3), Luke is annoyed with going to the town meeting. His wording indicates he hates these meetings, and NEVER attends. Except, from the previous seasons DVD releases, I have witnessed that Luke is a staple at these meetings (butting heads with Taylor as often as possible). I know this is a trivial point, but I was confused as to the reason from the creative team as to why Luke disdaines his meeiting.

Can anybody shed light on the circumstances of this occurrence?

Thank you
