Episode Forty-Nine: “Take the Deviled Eggs”
Original Airdate: November 5, 2002
The most uncomfortable person at the baby shower for Christopher’s girlfriend Sherry isn’t the very pregnant guest of honor. It’s Lorelai, pressured to attend . . . with a big, fat, fake smile on her face.
Want to know one of the biggest unanswered questions rolling around Gilmore Girls land? It is about the town loner and what he was protesting, and it stems from this episode. No one, aside from I’m sure the cast and crew knows what the town loner was protesting or what his sign said. They never talk about it, and although I have searched the interwebs, I’ve never found it either. *Sorry for the quality of the video, it’s the only one I could find.
As for the rest of the episode, I have to say I’ve always kind of liked this one. Only because it takes us into another part of the overall plot—bringing in Sherry and Christopher. Although, we don’t ever actually see him, we see Sherry at her baby shower. A lot of Sherry, and she comes with a shovel, reading to stir up Lorelai in a frenzy, even if she doesn’t know she does. Sometimes I actually felt a little sorry for Sherry. She has no idea about what happened with Christopher, and actually, she’s kind of innocent in it. At the same time, she’s a bit annoying with her OCDness. I love it when women think they will be able to micromanage a baby. It makes me laugh.
Oh, and I think egging Jess’s car is a waste of deviled eggs!

Luke Danes: Really?
Luke Danes: Good.
Gypsy: Guys are stupid.
