Episode Fifty-Four: “I Solemnly Swear . . .”
Original Airdate: January 21, 2003
Rory Gilmore, snake in the grass. Machiavellian politics have broken out at school, and Paris believes (unjustly, of course”) that Rory is Chilton’s Chief dirty trickster. The whole mess results in a dual . . . literally.
Well, it’s happened. Emily Gilmore is getting sued by one of there maids. The reason is because she fired the maid for being too loud when she walked. Or in Emily words. “Every time she went to my pantry, she sounded like she was marching on Poland.” I gotta laugh at that analogy. The whole situation is even worse when Lorelai can’t seem to put her animosity for her mother aside and give a deposition to her mother’s lawyer. Again, sometimes I think she holds way too hard onto her grudges.
Moving on! Ugh. I hate it when Paris and Rory are fighting. I’d rather them be friends because I think deep down they need one another, so when they fight it just brings down the show.
And of course we can’t forget the introduction of Alex! Who is around for like 2-3 episodes and then is never seen or hear or spoken of again. To be honest, I never knew why he was even introduced since his character ended up being utterly pointless.
What did you think of this episode?
Lorelai: You look peeved.
Emily: I’m not peeved.
Lorelai: Well, you look peeved.
Emily: Kindly stop making me say the word peeved.
Jackson: You wanna get another produce guy?
Sookie: Maybe I should!
Jackson: Well, go ahead!
Sookie: Don’t tempt me!
Jackson: That’s it, I am leaving.
Sookie: Go! And take the tendrils with you!
Jackson: Fine! See you tonight?
Sookie: I love you.
Lorelai: And it always ends with a hug.
