Episode Forty-Three: “I Can’t Get Started”
Original Airdate: May 21, 2002
The happiest day of Sookie’s life (even if her groom is wearing a kilt) brings romantic turmoil for Lorelai and Rory. Also, Paris runs for student body president, but she can’t win without a VP who adds likability to the ticket.
It’s time for Sookie’s and Jackson’s wedding! And boy is she a beautiful bride. I loved her dress and it was perfect for her.
This episode has a lot going on it in actually. Probably because it’s the season finale. There is a beautiful wedding, the continued rift between Luke and Lorelai (she’s finally going back in the diner, but he’s being cold to her), the return, once again, of Christopher and his and Lorelai’s possible getting back together that is also halted by a telephone call from Sherry (and a rather important call at that!), Paris and Rory going out for student body, and lastly, Jess coming back to Stars Hollow.
It’s a packed episode and of course they leave us with a rather huge bomb drop too . . . a couple actually.
I still do like have Christopher around, however, I know having him there full time would change the whole show and it just wouldn’t work. I’m not too thrilled with Jess coming back either. Ugh. But what can you do. At least Luke and Lorelai find common ground again. At least they do over time.
So what did you think of this episode?
Dean: (Referring to Babette and Miss Patty singing) So, how many cocktails caused that?
Rory: Oh, they haven’t had any cocktails yet.
Rory: Oh yeah, when they start having cocktails we’re gonna have to hide you.
Lorelai: Huh. You know what I just realized? Oy is the funniest word in the entire world.
Lorelai: I mean, think about it. You never hear the word oy and not smile. Impossible. Funny, funny word.
Emily: Oh, dear God.
Lorelai: Poodle is another funny word.
Emily: Please drink your drink, Lorelai.
Lorelai: In fact, if you put oy and poodle together in the same sentence, you’d have a great new catch phrase, you know? Like, oy with the poodles already. So from now on, when the perfect circumstances arise, we will use our favorite new catch phrase.
Rory: Oy with the poodles already.
Lorelai: I’m telling you, it’s knocking ‘whatcha talking ’bout, Willis?’ right out of first place.
Emily: Lorelai, for God’s sake, be quiet.
Paris: (on asking Rory to run for Vice President) Because people think you’re nice. You’re quiet, you say excuse me, you look like little birds help you get dressed in the morning. People don’t fear you.
Rory: Hey, I haven’t been dressed by a bird since I was two.
