Episode Twenty-Two: “Sadie, Sadie . . .”
Original Airdate: October 9, 2001
Third finger, left hand. Lorelai says “yes” to Max. Richard says “no” to Dean when Rory invites him to dinner at her grandparent’s mansion. Lane’s going to Korea . . . on a one-way ticket.
Poor Luke is in for the crushing words of a lifetime when Lorelai walks in for breakfast one morning. The only thing that makes the scene is how the whole town makes such a fuss, even to the point of surrounding the dinner to watch through the windows. I have to wonder if he didn’t ask those pesky, real-life questions, like where they are going to live, on purpose.
I mean, he does know Lorelai sometimes better than I think she knows herself . . . *wink wink*
Dinner at the Gilmore’s is quite interesting too as Emily and Richard meet Dean for the first time and Richard is less than thrilled to make the acquaintance. I feel sorry for poor Dean, but I think he handled it well, and as Lorelai said, he officially became a Gilmore Girl! I was grateful that at least Emily tried to help the situation by softening her exterior.
We did learn that there is yet another maid! Antonia. I’ll add her to my list.
One final thought, I wish they would have zoomed in on Lorelai’s ring!!! I wonder if I can Google what it looked like . . . Nope! Natta. There are zero pictures of it. BOOOO!!!
Luke: But who knows how long you’ll work after you’re married.
Lorelai: Excuse me?
Luke: But you probably already talked about that, right?
Lorelai: No, but I do think he and my father have come to an agreement on how many goats I’m worth.
Lorelai (talking about Luke): Everything about me repulses that man. My coffee drinking, my eating habits. Remember when I called him Ranger Bob last week, he hated that!
Luke (to Lorelai as he’s dumping coffee grounds into a filter to make a pot of coffee) Fresh coffee’ll be ready in a minute, unless you wanna just roll up a dollar bill and go nuts.
Richard: You know, when I was ten years old I knew exactly where I wanted to work.
Lorelai: Well, that’s because you were always picked last for dodgeball.
