Trivia

The song the kids are singing on the bus is "The Elements" by Tom Lehrer (the melody is essentially that of "The Major General Song" from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance"). It also appeared in the animated 1990's show Animaniacs (1993). See more »

Goofs

Caesar is panicking at the beginning of the episode because Luke is leaving for 10 days and Caesar states that he's never been away for that long. Luke, however, spent 7 weeks away helping Liz and TJ at the Renaissance fair when they were both injured. He also went on a seven-country cruise for a summer with his then-fiancee Nicole during Season 3. See more »

Rory turns up
17 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

  • Anka (the human one) couldn't resist working with his canine


counterpart on an upcoming episode of Gilmore Girls. "I have a dream that Paul Anka and Paul Anka meet," explains Lauren Graham. "It's very surreal," Especially when he sits on Babette's (Sally Struthers') lap. the real Paul Anka will make a guest appearance in the April 11 episode. He'll apparently be turning up in a dream/fantasy sequence.

After hitting another rough (and possibly permanent) patch with Logan, Rory decides to attend the opening of Jess' new 'zine/bookstore/art gallery in Philadelphia.- Luke is a chaperone during April's school trip to a math contest held in Philadelphia. He must befriend Mr. Munster, a math teacher, and Kelly and Earl, two other chaperones. During the bus drive, he sits with the kids rather than with the adults. Luke is a fish out of water, especially when the kids start singing Tom Lehrer's The Elements (a song about all the chemical elements). He tries to connect with the kids, but mostly, April. At the Inn, Lorelai takes care of the Moores, a couple who will go horseback riding. Logan and Rory are still a couple but things are somewhat tense. In Philadelphia, we see the building where Jess works (downstairs) and lives (upstairs) with some of his co-workers. In the work/shop area, Jess discusses with two co-workers, Matthew and Chris, about the fact they want their own bar. Alicia Mattheson, a woman who works for The Weekly comes in. It seems she may write a piece about a poet who'll perform later. Matthew takes care of her. It is at that moment, that Jess notices one of the customers... Luke. Later, Luke and April attend the poetry reading at Jess' workplace. Rory will somehow make her way to Philadelphia where she will meet up with Jess.
