Emily Gilmore: Well, that was a complete waste of time.
Lorelai Gilmore: What are you talking about?
Emily Gilmore: I'm talking about Christopher and Carolyn leaving separately.
Lorelai Gilmore: Well, come on, Mom, what did you think... They were going to throw down and consummate it right in the foyer?

Finally - Lorelai and Christopher wake up together. If only the damn child (Gigi?) would die and the Gilmores would be perfect!

Luke is far too deceptive. He's initially unattractive because he's safe and boring, but now he's added complications, it's eradicated any of the "safe and boring" benefits. So Lorelai's better off going for the bad boy, i.e. Christopher. And for the record... Lorelai is my stripper name :D.

I still pine for Jess, but I'm sure that Logan will provide us with plenty of excitement.

This was a great tie-up for the end of the series: it left you itching for more (in true GG style!) but didn't make you go "What? What happened? I don't understand!"

Typical Gilmore excellence, xx
