Episode Thirty-Five: “It Should’ve Been Lorelai”
Original Airdate: February 12, 2002
A new mom for Rory? When Christopher’s gorgeous new girlfriend Sherry meets the Gilmore Girls, it’s plain she wants to insta-bond with Rory. Lorelai feels a but uncomfortable, but Emily is furious.
I never not liked Sherry, but I wasn’t her biggest fan either. I’m more kind of indifferent to her. She was a side character that I think was only needed to keep Christopher and Lorelai apart not once but twice. She is a nice enough character, I guess. A bit pushy in all the episodes she’s in, but still nice.
It’s kind of shocking how Emily lashes out about the thought of Sherry though. Yikes.
So what are your thoughts on this episode?
Luke: You okay?
Luke: You don’t seem your chipper self.
Lorelai: I brought some sparklers. I’ll light them later and do some kicks.
Luke: You know, if you want I can clear the counter and you can play some bagel hockey.
Lorelai: You can’t play bagel hockey by yourself.
Luke: I’ll play with you. You’ll have to explain the rules.
Lorelai: It’s okay. I’m just trying to recover from last night. It was one of those nights where you start off stepping in quicksand and end up with a sixteen-ton anvil landing on your head.
Rory: Think fast!
(Rory tosses phone to Luke who catches it in mid-stride with no trouble)
Lorelai: (to Rory) Whoa, impressive! Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
Lorelai: Goalie for the bagel-hockey team.
Rory: And bump Schmitty?
Lorelai: Schmitty’s over the hill, he’s washed up, put him in Cooperstown. (to Luke) Suit up, kid!
Luke: Call me if anyone sane walks in.
Lorelai: This whole morning has been a little Twilight Zone-y.
Luke: Or Outer Limits-y.
Luke: Great show. Just as eerie, same era but no one ever references it.
Lorelai: Oh, I’m sorry, I don’t speak geek.
Luke: (shakes head, self-deprecatingly) Yep, stepped right in it.
