Episode Two: “The Lorelais’ First Day at Chilton.”
Original Airdate: October 12, 2000
You get extra points if you sing the school sone–in latin. Chilton isn’t a place where cutoffs and cowboy books are the fashion. But that’s what Lorelai hurriedly throws on to accompany Rory to the posh school.
Okay, well, the first thought that always comes to my mind with this episode is why Lorelai picked the outfit she did to take Rory to school. I know it was for the comical part of the show, however, I don’t buy it for one second that ALL of her clothes were at the cleaners, and considering she pretty much wears a couple of different outfits every episode, there is no way she could only have a pair of cut off short and a pink shirt lying around the house. Especially when we never see either of those pieces of clothing ever again in the show.
Just something I noticed over the many years of watching the series over and over.
I do love that we are introduced to Kirk. Although, he’s not Kirk in this episode but instead he is Mick the DSL installer. I’m so glad they found that actor a role, though, because I don’t know if GG would be the same without Kirk.
What you do think? Do you think it would have been the same without him?
Some funny quotes:
Luke: (getting her coffee) Do you want to know what this stuff does to your central nervous system?
Lorelai: Ooh, do you have a chart? ‘Cause I love charts.
Emily: But there are five days in a school week.
Lorelai: Really? Are you sure? Because my days-of-the-week underwear only go to Thursday.
Lorelai: (glances at her fuzzy clock) This is the last time I buy anything just because it’s furry.
Lorelai: You are an amazing kid. You have earned this. You just go in there and show them what smart really is. I love you. Just call me if you need me.
Rory: You’re kidding, right?
Lorelai: No. Call me if you need anything. I’m great at making up dirty cheers.
