This again isn’t one of my favorite episodes. Any episode that Lorelai and Rory are in turmoil usually is one I don’t care for. Guess I like things to be going well for my girls!
Christmas time is upon Stars Hallow and the town is preparing for the Christmas pageant.
Lorelai is uninvited to the usual Gilmore Christmas dinner and Lorelai sends Rory off on her own to the event. The biggest thing she is depressed about is missing out the song worthy apple tarts. Apparently, Lorelai has a reputation at the party as well for liking the apple tarts.
Dean comes to see Rory at her window, but Lorelai intercepts. The two work out their issues though.
Though it has nothing to do with the episode, I love how Stars Hollow has church bells playing in the gazebo. I could live in that idyllic winter wonderland all year long.
Lorelai flocks to the diner in hopes of a festive christmas meal. Sweet Luke makes her a disgusting yet charming Santa burger. However, things are cut short when Lorelai gets a tragic voicemail from Rory that her father has been taken to the hospital. Luke steps in to support a flustered Lorelai and the two head off to the hospital.
Emily is frantic at the hospital with Richard having a heart attack. If Emily treated her maids poorly, she really treats her nurses poorly. Never fails that Lorelai knows how to work the system.
Richard thankfully makes it out successfully. Though I wonder what it would take to get a screwdriver jammed into the side of your head. It is hilarious how Luke cannot handle illness and injury though.
It seems that it takes one tragedy to repair the small issues, as the relationships between mother and daughter and mother and daughter are repaired.
Take home message from this episode: HOW ARE LUKE AND LORELAI NOT A COUPLE??? HOW LONG MUST IT TAKE?
Lorelai: “Dean, you know we have a really nice front door. You, should use it some time.”
Lorelai: “Don’t you have anything festive” (looking at diner menu)
Luke: “I just got some Grey Poupon in, that’s French.”
Rory: “If I hug you is it going to hurt?”
Richard: “Pain is part of life.”
Lorelai calls for a pizza, but its going to be an hour because they are delivering via Razor Scooter!
Luke mentions finding Jimmy Hoffa, who has actually recently been “found”.
Lorelai make a joke about not understand Charo
Until next episode, Oy with the Poodles!!! -L
