Gilmore Girls Project: Presenting Lorelai Gilmore

Season Two

Episode Twenty-Seven: “Presenting Lorelai Gilmore”

Original Airdate: November 6, 2001

To please Emily, Rory agrees to come out at a debutantes’ ball. Lorelai gets a second surprise when Christopher agrees to fulfill his father deb duties.

I’m coming out!

Okay, one thing I have to say is I have never liked the dress Rory wears for her debut/coming out ball. It’s pretty, but it’s not something I would pick or wear. I’ve never liked dresses with thin straps. But I suppose aside from that it was a good pick for Rory and her character, and it fit her beautifully. Not to mention, it was Lorelai’s dress, the one she was supposed to wear at her debutant ball—the one she missed because she was pregnant with Rory.

Can you tell, I’m changing my mind a little on the dress?

Anyway, Christopher returns . . . at least for this episode. So this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Christopher since his departure from Stars Hollow after he returned for the one episode in season one (we saw him in that brief moment when Lorelai called him at her bachelorette party), however, this is the first we learn that he’s not in California anymore, but actually back in Boston. Although, we never really learn why, other than he met Sherry and she wanted someone who was responsible and stable. Funny how he changed for her, but not for Lorelai and Rory. What a storyline with that woman does it turn out to be too, and that’s all I’m going to say.

So what did you think of this episode?

Funny Quotes:

Rory: Before I knew it, Grandma was telling me how important it is for a person to be properly presented to society.
Lorelai: Ugh!
Rory: And how every young girl dreams of this day.
Lorelai: Argh!
Rory: And how there are flowers.
Lorelai: Oh, Lord!
Rory: And music.
Lorelai: Please!
Rory: And cake.
Lorelai: Oh yeah, the cake’s actually good.

Lorelai: See; now only a lady can gracefully walk around a room with a book on her head while eating Kung pow chicken. I mean a great lady can even spit the peanuts back into the container without anyone noticing.
Rory: Wow!
Lorelai: Yeah, well don’t be intimidated. You have to practice and practice to get to my level.

Rory: And when I got back from Grandpa’s office, they all invited me out onto the patio.
Lorelai: No, no, no! Please tell me you did not go out onto the patio.
Rory: I went out onto the patio.
Lorelai: Oh, Rory, that’s like accepting the position as the drummer in Spinal Tap.

Rory: So, did you know that you’re considered a hot dad?
Lorelai: Hah!
Christopher: Really?
Rory: Libby said that it’s too bad that you’re my real dad, because if you were my stepdad, I could steal you away from Mom.
Lorelai: Ugh.
Christopher: That Libby’s got a good life ahead of her.
