Episode Fifty-Nine: “The Big One”
Original Airdate: February 25, 2003
Surprise, surprise! Rory and Paris finally hear from Harvard . . . with surprising results. Lorelai and Max meet again . . . with surprising consequences. And Sookie’s tastebuds misfire . . . for a surprising reason.
In the beginning of this episode, we get the funny banter of driving Luke nuts. Always makes me laugh.
So many things are going on in this episode:
SOOKI IS PREGNANT!!! Yay! I can’t really remember pregnancy changing my tastebuds so much that my food tasted different. But then I suppose I wouldn’t know if it had. Although my family would have told me and they never said a word. It’s because either it didn’t change or they felt bad about saying anything.
Max is back!! I didn’t know how much I missed him until I saw him again. Which I think is what Lorelai felt too.
Paris sleeps with Jamie, doesn’t get into Harvard, and loses her mind on CSPAN . . . all in a matter of about 12 hours. Kind of hard to feel nothing but pity for her when she finally wakes up the next day and realizes what she’s done.
And finally, RORY GOT THE BIG ENVELOPES! So which school is going to be Harvard or Yale? Now it’s time to make a choice. Which one will she choose?
So what did you think of this episode?
Lorelai: Excuse me, hi. I am not seeing my coat here, and it was very cute and it was on sale, and I will fling myself off a building if I lose it.
Woman: We put some of the coat racks in the classroom over there. Take a look. Otherwise, the staircase to the roof is on your right.
Lorelai: Thank you. Hmm. Took two hundred years, but somebody at Chilton finally cracked a joke.
