Lorelai: I'm so mad at you!
Rory: What kind of greeting is that?
Lorelai: What kind of daughter doesn't let her mother pick her up at the airport?
Rory: The kind who parks her car at the airport car park.
Lorelai: But I'm the kind of mother who picks her daughter up at the airport, you know, with flowers and coffee and a fake chauffeur's sign. Why would you mess with my sense of self?

Boring script, and sudden changes in personality......
26 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Gilmore Girls used to have so many fans and so many people logged on to comment about it. Now, the show has gotten so bad that no one even wants to take the time to comment on it anymore. The script has become SO boring. Christopher and Lorelai used to have such a spark in their conversation. The reason we all loved to see them together was because they had so much in common in terms of their interests in music bands and a hip culture. Their conversation has become totally flat! Not only that, Lorelai's character has changed one hundred percent in this new season. Suddenly, she's scared of losing Christopher and will do anything he says. And Rory too. She will do anything to keep Logan. They had a huge fight, and we didn't even see how it got resolved. What happened to the two independent women that they used to be? I wish Palladino was still producing the show.
