Episode One Hundred Fifty-One: “Lorelai? Lorelai?”
Original Airdate: May 1, 2007
On karaoke night, a tipsy Lorelai takes the stage to sing . . . and exposes her feelings for Luke. And Logan returns to Stars Hollow with a question for Lorelai.
So, I have a love/hate relationship with his episode and it’s all because of the karaoke scene. It’s awkward watching Lorelai sing that song to Luke and I always fast forward through the scene. I don’t know why. I just don’t like it. That said, most of the other parts of the episode I do love, especially the beginning and the ending. *wink wink*
Anyhoo, moving on . . . so remember how I said I hated that Rory made the mistake of going for the fellowship. Well, now, here it is. Biting her in the butt since the job she said no to is now filled and no one else is hiring. She should have just taken the job.
I couldn’t imagine having twins, and watching Lane exhausts me. I couldn’t imagine, and it also doesn’t help that I am no longer in the baby phase of my life. Other than my grandchildren—which my girls can wait a really long time and I wouldn’t mind one bit—I am just not a baby person anymore. They are cute, from a distance, but any closer . . . nope. And the older they get even more of a nope.
It’s really sad that April ditches Luke for their summer trip. He was so excited about it and now he has to cancel. Bummer.
At least we have the end of the episode to cheer us up . . .
LORELAI: Oh, you’re preparing for the big boat trip, huh?
LORELAI: [Sighs as she sits down] Wow. Do you want me to just talk in nautical terms till you go?
LORELAI: Aye, aye, captain.
LUKE: Please don’t.
LORELAI: Shiver me timbers.
LUKE: Are you done?
LORELAI: All hands on deck. Now I’m done.
ZACH: Yeah well, great news. Their lead guitarist got into this wicked car accident, which isn’t the great part, clearly. He’s gonna be fine, but the use of his right hand is pretty iffy. Anyway, they need a new guitarist, and they called me.
LANE: Lead guitarist?
ZACH: Lead guitarist.
LANE: For vapor rub?
ZACH: I know.
LANE: Oh my God I want to yell, but I don’t want to wake the babies. I’m yelling on the inside.
ZACH: And it’s a million times better than that Seventh-Day Adventist tour. We get to stay in actual motel rooms, not church basements, and we don’t have to run our lyrics past the church elders before every show.
LANE: [Sighs] I am so proud of you, Zach. [They kiss] Now let’s pop open the name-brand chips!
ZACH: You want to wake the babies and tell them?
LANE: [Serious look on her face] Do it and die.
