Episode Sixty-Three: “Say Goodnight, Gracie”
Original Airdate: May 6, 2003
The great brawl of 2003 is over, but so much else is just beginning: Jess’s loser father shows up, Dean and Lindsey get engaged, and Fran the bakery lady dies, which means the Dragonfly may be for sale.
I get to share lots of sneak peaks with you today!
So here we are in the aftermath of the party where Jess and Dean got into a fight and Lane called Mrs. Kim drunk, telling her about the party, the band, and loving Dave.
So we are nearing the season finale, and this season is no different. We have Taylor dressed as the candy man, and walking around town handing out candy, Mrs. Kim allowing Lane and Dave to go to the prom after Dave gives her an amazing monologue and then reads the whole bible in one night, Luke having to foot the bill for the damage at the party, and GASP the sudden arrival of Jimmy, Jess’s dad.
“You can go to the prom, but you cannot get married.”
We also have the cold war between Lorelai and her parents. Which honestly, I think that the way Lorelai treats them actually does hurt their feelings. Which could be why they act like they do at times. It’s like a stupid circle between them. The part that drives me crazy, is Lorelai is always on them about not listening to her and they treat her bad, but she never has any reflection on her own actions. Ever.
But back to the episode, so sad that Fran dies, but now guess what, The Dragonfly Inn is now on the market . . .
Enjoy this deleted scene! I’m actually kind of bummed it was cut.
Rory: [about Lane’s backpack] I got it, we can go.
Lorelai: Why are you holding it like that?
Rory: Because when Lane left it here last night it was a very different color.
Lorelai: Are you sure she’s gonna want that back? It’s been left alone all night at a keg party, there’s no getting it over that. That backpack is permanently scarred, that backpack is Zelda Fitzgerald.
Lorelai: So, not only did you GO to a cop raided party, but you were the cause of the fight that caused the raid!
Lorelai: [singing] Did you ever know that you’re my heeero. You’re everything I wish I could be!
Jess: I need ham.
Ceaser: No ham.
Jess: We got a shipment of ham yesterday!
Ceaser: No ham.
Jess: Ceasar, there is a lady over there that has been saying she wants ham for the last twenty minutes and if I go back there empty-handed, there is a fifty-fifty chance that she will eat me!
Ceaser: No ham!
Jess: Then sew some bacon together because that woman is getting ham!
