Episode One Hundred Six: “But I’m a Gilmore”
Original Airdate: April 26, 2005
Disaster in a blue dress. Rory dines at the Huntzbergers’ . . . and does not measure up to the family’s idea of a suitable girl for Logan. With Sookie on bed rest, Luke fills in as Chef at the Dragonfly.
So we are nearing the end of season five so of course we have to up the drama. Cue in the horrible dinner at the Huntzbergers. But I supposed we will get into that more later. At least we at finally at the point of Rory and Logan the exclusive years. I’ve been waiting for it since all the back and forth between them was giving me whiplash. But I guess it needed to happen as it’s kind of hard to rope those wild boys.
I do love that Rory was just hungover and bold enough to be blunt . . . this time. Other times she isn’t. I do wonder if she’d been able to stay away from him if he decided to just be her friend. I guess we will never know.
And then there is the dinner at the Huntzbergers. What a great family . . .
Although I do love Rory and Logan’s conversation when they arrived:
RORY: You look nervous.
LOGAN: Do I? Huh. I’m just not so sure what I got you into.
RORY: What do you mean?
LOGAN: Well, my family’s not going to take my sister’s engagement too well. They can be a little vicious when annoyed.
RORY: Hey. Relax. You do not have to worry about me at all. Five years of Friday night dinners have prepared me for exactly this moment.
RORY: Remind me to tell you about the time my mom climbed out a second story window to get away from my grandmother.
LOGAN: Ah, I will.
[They climb the steps to the front door.]
LOGAN: Okay, ready?
[Logan rings the bell. Honor rushes out.]
HONOR: You are late!
LOGAN: Fifteen minutes.
HONOR: Well, it’s awful! A morgue! It’s like they already know what I’m going to tell them.
LOGAN: Well, you have been with Josh for three years now.
HONOR: I don’t understand it. I called and told them that you were coming because that usually makes Mom happy. And I told her that you were bringing Rory so they’d be on their company behavior, but from the minute Josh and I walked in that door it’s been iceberg city! Josh has completely panicked. Shaking.
LOGAN: Wow. Sorry.
HONOR: Don’t be sorry. Just get in here and stop it.
[Honor marches inside. Logan sighs.]
RORY: Hm. Remind me to tell you about the time my mother wore a shirt with a rhinestone penis on it and my grandma had her car towed.
Man I wish they would have put that scene in an episode.
I will say I was always surprised by this line: LOGAN: Josh isn’t marrying the heir to the Huntzberger fortune, you are.
Kind of a bold little statement there, Logan. By the way, I think Matt did an amazing job acting this these scenes. He actually acts great in all his scenes.
And, now for the other things happening in episode, Sookie is bat-crap crazy sometimes (insert laughing). I know she is protective of her kitchen, but this is a whole other level.
LOGAN: Ah. [He starts pacing.]
RORY: I thought I could be different, but I can’t. I’m sorry. Maybe we can just go back to being friends again.
LOGAN [mad]: Or maybe we can become boyfriend and girlfriend, right?
LOGAN: I get it. I get what you’re doing.
RORY: I’m not doing anything.
LOGAN: Hey, if that’s what you want then just come out and say it. But you coming in here and issuing an ultimatum –
RORY: I am not issuing an ultimatum!
LOGAN: That’s not what I heard.
RORY: I said let’s be friends!
LOGAN: That’s not what you meant!
RORY [moans]: I need a taco!
LORELAI [sighs]: This is bad, Michel.
MICHEL: I’m getting that, yes.
LORELAI: Well, we’ll just figure something out, right?
MICHEL: Absolutely. Ain’t no mountain high enough.
LORELAI: We’ll just, um, formulate a plan, nail down a strategy. You have any ideas?
MICHEL: We could order some pizza, or Chinese food, or perhaps one of those hoagies that you cut into a million pieces –
LORELAI: No more suggestions necessary, Michel.
DOYLE: I don’t want Nanny. I’m scared of Nanny. Can’t you just take it from here?
PARIS: Sick people freak me out.
DOYLE: You’re pre-med!
RORY: What do you mean, she finally got Doyle to sleep?
PARIS: He’s here. He’s sick, so Nanny’s taking care of him.
RORY: Why aren’t you doing it?
PARIS: Sick people freak me out.
RORY: You’re pre-med!
PARIS: I’m really tired of having that constantly thrown in my face.
LORELAI: Rory, two days ago you were on the bathroom floor crying about why he won’t call you. Why doesn’t he like you, what did you do?
RORY: I was drunk. I was sick!
LORELAI: You, my beautiful, brainy, fabulous daughter, were lying on the floor of the bathroom, wondering what you had done wrong! Which is disturbing to me on several levels, including the fact that I can’t remember the last time I cleaned the floor of the bathroom! Is that really the kind of relationship you want to be in?
