Episode Thirty: “Run Away, Little Boy”
Original Airdate: November 27, 2001
Young love, Gilmore Girl style. In the school play, Rory is Juliet, Tristen is Romeo—and Dean is peeved. Meanwhile, Lorelai dates a much younger business school classmate, much to Luke’s amusement.
Praise the Gilmore Gods! Tristen is gone.
And that’s about all I have to say about this episode.
Lorelai: This is incredible! I go on one stupid date, and suddenly I’m the female Jerry Lee Lewis!
Sookie: Oh forget it honey, the town likes to tease. Plus, he did look really young.
Lorelai: You didn’t even see him.
Sookie: Kirk snapped pictures!
Lorelai: Hey Dean. Do you want some fries?
Dean: No, I’m actually going home for dinner. My mom made fried chicken tonight and she saved me some.
Lorelai: Oh, you have a cooking mom.
Rory: That’s so nice.
Lorelai: Well, she may make chicken, but is she a casual dater?
Rory: I hope not. She’s married.
Lorelai: Say it!
Rory: I’ve always wanted a little brother.
Lorelai: He looked older the other night!
Rory: How much older could he possibly look?
Lorelai: A lot! He’s usually a little scruffy, and then the baseball cap hides the funky hair thing.
Rory: He should’ve been holding a yo-yo and a lollipop and wearing a beanie with a propeller on it.
Lorelai: He’s in his twenties.
Rory: He must have been a very good boy to deserve such a happy day. I bet they let him ride a pony.
