Episode One Hundred Three: “So . . . Good Talk”
Original Airdate: March 1, 2005
Big snits: Lane’s peeved at Mrs. Kim. Lorelai won’t speak to Emily. Rory will—very loudly. And Luke, miserable without Lorelai, burns the borders and snarls at customers.
Ah, the great freeze out. Yeah, Emily got what she deserved, and I love the scene where Lorelai keeps hanging up on her. Although, I do think it’s kind of passive/agreesive for both Lorelai and Rory to treat Emily that way, even if I enjoyed watching it just a little. I know Emily has done some bad things, and I know how I’ve often said Lorelai overreacts to the things, but this one was a bit much.
I do love Lane’s problem. I mean, I know how it’s always great when I open my mouth and my mother comes out. Sigh. At least this thing that came out of her mouth though is one I hope my daughter’s say.
I also love how the episode ended. Rory is going back to Yale because Logan cut his trip short—which is kind of a shocker. Mr. Big Party Boy doesn’t want to be with his friends on Spring Break but chooses to go back to school where he thinks Rory is? I thought he wasn’t the relationship type? *wiggles eyebrows.
And of course, the best part of the ending . . .
LANE: Go, go. I’ll see you later, and keep low! [Zach leaves.] How are you doing, Kirk?
KIRK: Great. I’m loving this blackened Cajun bread Luke made for me. I didn’t even ask for it.
LANE: That’s burnt toast, Kirk. You don’t have to eat it.
KIRK: But I’m loving it! And look. [He scrapes some toast crumbs onto his food.] I’ve been mixing blackened ash with the runny eggs. Goes great with the fishy tasting bacon.
LANE: Glad you like it.
RORY: Hi. I’d like a large caramel macchiato with an extra shot and whip cream, please.
COFFEE BOY: Coming up.
RORY: Wait, hold on. How much is that?
COFFEE BOY: Four eighty-five.
RORY: Okay, better drop the extra shot. What does that make it?
COFFEE BOY: Four twenty.
RORY: Better make it a small. What does that make it?
COFFEE BOY: Three thirty.
RORY: Better drop the whip cream. What does that make it?
COFFEE BOY: Less calories.
RORY: Just a plain old small coffee, please. [She turns around and drops her change all over the ground.] D’oh.
