your top top 6 Gilmore Girls moments (because I'm cruel like that) ;)
Luke and Lorelai’s wedding sequence in “Fall.” The revival obviously produced a lot of complicated & melodramatic mixed emotions in me, but that was such a purely joyous, lovely (and bittersweet – Emilyyyyyy) dream of a sequence. I legit could not BELIEVE IT when “Reflecting Light” started playing.
Lorelai seeing Richard and Emily crying in the audience when she graduated in “Lorelai’s Graduation Day.” A perfect, perfectly moving moment.
“Yes, Emily, you may go first.”
Lorelai sleepily saying “Thank you, Mommy” to Emily in “Rory’s Dance.”
RORY SMELLING THE BOOK in “But Not As Cute As Pushkin.” My dorky angel!
Also Lorelai coming into Rory’s room at her birthday minute in “Rory’s Birthday Parties.”
(And Rory and Paris smiling at each other during the Bangles concert!)
(And Luke pushing Jess in the lake!)
(And SO MANY OTHER LUKE SCENES!)
(And “A Film by Kirk”!)
(And when Babette and Morey stayed outside to look at the stars!)
(And Jackson and Sookie romantically feeding each other tomatoes!)
My ultimate inspiration comes from my best friend, the dazzling woman from whom I received my name and my life’s blood, Lorelai Gilmore. My mother never gave me any idea that I couldn’t do whatever I wanted to do or be whomever I wanted to be. She filled our house with love and fun and books and music, unflagging in her efforts to give me role models from Jane Austen to Eudora Welty to Patti Smith. As she guided me through these incredible eighteen years, I don’t know if she ever realized that the person I most wanted to be was her.
This man was at Rory’s birthday party, he came to the hospital with you, he’s the male lead in every story you tell, you go to the diner every single day. I’ve seen the way he looks at you, the way you look at him. I’m not a fool.
