Episode Forty-Four: “Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days”
Original Airdate: September 24, 2002
Back from a summer internship in DC, Rory finds Dean waiting for her—and Jess giving a blonde some serious mouth-to-mouth, Lorelai tells her parents that Christopher’s girlfriend is pregnant.
Every time I watch this episode, I have the lazy-hazy-crazy days of summer song stuck in my head for days. Even as I write this, I can hear it. I can’t imagine how those men repeated it over and over and over. I would have gone nuts.
This episode is quite packed. Paris gets asked out on a date, Lorelai has to tell her parents that her and Christopher aren’t together anymore, Sookie is trying to “man” up her house and does so without Jackson’s okay, and Jess is lip-locked most of the episode with some blonde (which oddly we’ve never seen before and after he breaks it off with her, we never see again).
I do love how Luke and Lorelai have their make up moment. Thanks to Mimi, a new customer who just needs a cup of coffee and a donut.
So what did you think of this episode?
Lorelai: Rory, what are you doing?
Rory: What do you mean what am I doing? I’m ranting! You should recognize it, I learned it from you.
Paris: What if I fall for him but he doesn’t like me?
Rory: You’ll find someone else.
Paris: What if there is no one else?
Rory: Then you’ll get some cats.
Paris: I can’t do this.
Paris: Date. I can’t date. I’m not genetically set up for it.
Rory: Not true.
Paris: I get no pleasure out of the prospect or the preparation. I’m covered in hives, I’ve showered four times, and for what? Some guy who doesn’t even have the brains to buy a Zagat so we don’t wind up in a restaurant that’s really just a front for a cocaine laundering ring?
