Gilmore Girls Project: Season One, Concert Interruptus

Season One

Episode Thirteen: “Concert Interruptus”

Original Airdate: February 15, 2001

Lorelai takes Rory and three girlfriends to a concert by The Bangles—and takes action when two of the girls sneak off with some college guys. Lorelai’s home is the drop-off point for a town rummage sale donations.

I actually have always liked this episode. I don’t know why, perhaps, it’s because Lorelai finally puts those girls in their place or because there is so much going on in the whole 40 some-odd minutes. I’m not sure. But it’s always one I’ve enjoyed. I also like how Paris, Madeline, and Louise actually think Rory’s house and mom are cool and they don’t make fun of her for it. Most bullies would do the opposite.

The only part about this episode that confuses me is how Lorelai didn’t know about Rachel. I mean, I know they explained it away because she had an 11 year old and she was moving into the house, but still. I don’t really believe that she didn’t know about her. Especially if Luke was going to marry this woman. And even if she didn’t know how serious they were, wouldn’t she have seen her around? Even if Rachel was gone a lot? I mean, when Rachel was back, we saw her all the time. So confusing.

Funny Quotes:

Lane: I’m getting a soda. Anybody want anything?
Lorelai: Yes. The night of my 14th birthday back, so I could right the green-hotpants-roller-disco-outfit wrong.

Loreai (to the college guys): Yeah, see those two idiots over there? They’re 16…underage and I bet you’re not. I also bet those big fancy party cups aren’t holding lemonade. You really want to end any further conversations with me so step aside Skippy. Move your asses outside…now! (Out in the hallway) Hey, I am not even going to begin to tell you how completely insane it is to take off with anyone you don’t know, or drink things that you don’t know what’s in them, or act like you have a clue when you don’t, but so help me God if you ever pull a stunt like this again, it will not be around my kid! Do you understand me?

Rory: We haven’t argued about the hat.
Lorelai: What hat?
Rory: The one on your head, Annie Oakley.

Lorelai: Who wants cheese?
Rory: Are there crackers?
Lorelai: Somewhere in the state of Connecticut, yes, there are crackers.
Rory: And in the Gilmore house?
Lorelai: Who wants cheese?
