Episode One Hundred Twenty-Eight: “I Get a Sidekick Out of You”
Original Airdate: April 18, 2006
Lane and Zach’s wedding day is a glorious mix of Buddhist and Christian, red silk, and white satin, ceremonial awe and awesome partying. Lorelai suddenly realizes that Rory may be next . . . and she may be never.
There is so much awesome things going on in this episode. It’s just too much to type about. It’s always been one of my favorites! Well, everything except Lorelai getting hammered and making that toast. Yikes. Not to mention, but the writing is on wall folks. I think we are heading into another Luke and Lorelai breakup. And with Christopher suddenly coming around more and more, something tells me he will have something to do with it.
For now, though, let’s just enjoy Lane and Zack’s wedding!
The best part is when Lorelai “fixes” Lane’s dress.
And then there is the whole drama with Mrs. Kim’s mom. Apparently, Mrs. Kim has been hiding things from her mother for decades!! Why, Mrs. Kim, who knew you had it in you!
58 Seats. 62 Koreans!
SOOKIE: [OS] Lorelai!
SOOKIE: [OS] Lorelai! Help Lorelai, oh my God…problem. [Sookie comes running out with a covered tray] Something went very, very wrong.
LORELAI: Wrong with what?
SOOKIE: Remember the dirty cookies I was baking for the bachelorette gift baskets?
SOOKIE: Well, they expanded in the oven.
LORELAI: Expanded? What do you mean? [Sookie uncovers the tray] Oh, dear!
SOOKIE: I know.
LORELAI: Hello, Tommy Lee.
RORY: Your mother’s mother does not know she’s a seventh-day Adventist.
LANE: And it would be a very big deal if she found out.
RORY: That is so weird.
LANE: Tell be about it I just discovered today that I am simply the latest link in a chain of Kim women who hide their real lives under floorboards away from their mothers.
RORY: It’s dad. He gave me this thing as a gift, you know. However, he also got himself one, and since then, he has been texting me every five minutes. It’s insane you should have told him no when he ran this past you.
LORELAI: I think it’s nice you have a real daddy/daughter thing going on.
RORY: Oh, yeah, he’s shopping for celery at the supermarket. They’re running a special.
LORELAI: He’s just excited.
RORY: Yeah, well, now he’s in the canned-peas aisle. Apparently he doesn’t like peas, but he does like pea soup. Interesting, no? No!
LORELAI: All right, give me that. Um, okay. [texting] “Your daughter is about to see Richard Gere’s penis.” That should shut him up for a while. [they notice one of the girls vomiting] That’s got to be some sort of record.
RORY: He can be here in 20.
RORY: Wow, four tacos. Quite a man, my father. So, what do you think? Should I pull the trigger?
LORELAI: [Sighs] Tell him to bring me a taco.
RORY: Will do. T.P.T.D.I…
LORELAI: What does that mean?
RORY: “totally psyched to do it.”
LORELAI: He’s making up his own acronyms?
RORY: Yeah, and he just learned how to make the happy face.
LORELAI: Sorry, kid, what can I say, he was really hot in high school.
LORELAI: Uh, excuse me. Hi, Mrs. Kim. I’d like you to meet Christopher Hayden. He’s Rory’s father and a man.
CHRISTOPHER: Did that really need clarification?
