Trivia

The title of this episode is (part of) a quote from Shakespeare's "Henry V" (Act III), and is spoken by Paris Geller just before the girls walk onto the stage at graduation. It is from the first line of the king's speech to his troops, before staging another attack on the French city they are besieging. The speech ends with the famous line "Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'" See more »

Goofs

Milan Kundera's name is consistently mispronounced during this episode. (The stress always falls on the first syllable of the word in Czech.) See more »

Quotes

Logan Huntzberger: If I could, I'd also like to say a few words about my girlfriend of the last 3 years. You amaze me, Rory Gilmore. Everyday, everything that you do, everything that you are. This past year I learned that I don't know a whole lot more than I thought I knew, if that makes sense. I'm sorry, I'm a little bit nervous and I didn't think I would be. What I'm trying to say is, I don't know a lot. But I know that I love you, and I want to be with you.
Logan Huntzberger: [Takes out ring] Rory Gilmore, will you marry me?
Rory Gilmore: ......

Unto the Breach
22 February 2010 | by candyfan-1See all my reviews

I have to smile, really, that in this day and age, anyone would attempt to introduce feminism into this wonderful episode on behalf of Rory Gilmore. Her emergence as an adult graduating from Yale is well written and portrayed in this episode. And her treatment of Logan is also in keeping with her personality. I found no difficulty in accepting her choices in this show regarding Logan, her future as a Yale graduate and her feelings about her friends and family.

As for Luke and Lorelai, their impending relationship, post marriage with Christopher, is, yes, somewhat rushed. It seems things were left hanging in order to get to the next episode, the final episode. Yet together, this show and the last one (Bon Voyage) do justice to what we all wanted to see - a final resolution between these two.

And we get it! Now you have to use some imagination, which is difficult for some who want to see everything spelled out. But I feel secure in knowing that they very likely did marry and live happily ever after. Both were faced with the loss every parent faces - their kids growing up and moving on. Given the alternatives of future life in their small town, it is only natural that they likely gravitated towards each other. Everything written to date, in my humble opinion, points towards such an ending, even though we never get to see it.

Imagination is a wonderful thing and so thank you Amy for leaving us to dream a bit about the futures of the characters in Gilmore Girls. Special thank you to Lauren Graham for her upbeat and often alluring portrayal of the single mom. How in the world Luke took so long to avoid colliding with this beautiful woman is beyond me?
