Episode One Hundred Thirty-Eight: “French Twist”
Original Airdate: November 14, 2006
In Stars Hollow, Rory is clueless about her future. In Paris, Christopher has his and Lorelai’s future all mapped out. In panic mode, Lane discovers her future: She is expecting twins.
So Rory is no longer editor of the Yale Daily News. Boo. Such a sad day. And I get her freak out, but at the same time . . . Uh, shouldn’t college have preparred you for the what to do after? Why else go to college?
Moving on, Lane and Zack aren’t just having one baby, but they are having two! Two babies. I couldn’t even imagine. But I do love it when they tell Mrs. Kim. I even teared up. She’s so sweet. Or at least she became sweet in the later years.
Aside from that, the big news on the block . . .well, first off Marty is back! And he pretends not to know Rory which is super weird and I don’t even understand.
But also . . . drumroll, Christopher and Lorelai get married!!
CHRISTOPHER: You were great with her the whole flight. You were also great with Sherry today. Thank you.
LORELAI: She was great with me.
CHRISTOPHER: So, it’s not just me, right? She does see to have it together?
LORELAI: Yeah, she seems grounded and sincere. She was nice. I couldn’t believe how prepared for Gigi She was.
CHRISTOPHER: She was. She had her favorite “Madeline” book. She knew where the nearest park was. And did you see? She already had a booster seat.
LORELAI: Very impressive, by the time I got Rory one of those, she was 60 pounds. It got stuck on her butt. [Sighs] Oh, my god.
LORELAI: We’re in Paris!
CHRISTOPHER: You were thinking it was phoenix?
PARIS: What are you taking, by the way?
PARIS: Just remember, Tricyclic antidepressants are better than your Monoamine Oxidase inhibitors, since those are for panic attacks. It doesn’t look like you’re there yet.
RORY: I have no plans of going there.
PARIS: You will. I know when I was finished as editor, I went into a major tailspin, couldn’t you tell?
RORY: Well you masked it so well with your generally gloomy disposition.
PARIS: The first day is hard. Then it just gets worse.
RORY: As it happens, I am totally relieved that my job at the paper is over.
PARIS: Yeah I did the denial thing, too. I even tried smiling a lot. That got old, and I think it made this line.
RORY: That’ll teach you to smile.
PARIS: You really shouldn’t be alone at a time like this. Why don’t you call your “girls gone wild” friends? They seem delightful in a “get crazy-drunk in Cancun and flash your breasts” kind of way.
RORY: Your take on Lucy and Olivia is so not them.
PARIS: Whatever. Later. Oh, and Lexapro is fast-acting, but side effects are weight gain and noticeable drop in sexual appetite. Of course, with Logan gone, that’s moot.
RORY: Always a pleasure, Paris.
