Episode 111: “Paris is Burning”

Summary:

Who else wants to play alphabetical disease naming to decide who gets to do household chores??????? Though puppy’s definitely aren’t diseases!! Seems that the Gilmore’s have quite the black cloud when it comes to animals though.

Max makes Lorelai a delicious meal of Osso Buco (one of my favorites) that an old girlfriend taught him how to make. Its a little awkward how Lorelai mentions talking about Max grading Rory’s paper though. It’s even weirder when Madeline and Louise start talking about who Mr. Madina is dating.

Other than Mr. Madina, the whole school is apparently in talks about Paris’s parents divorce. And next week is parent’s week, which Lorelai is super excited to attend (though not as excited as she is about the mother/daughter talent show!).

As Lorelai gets ready to go out with Max, he shows up early before Rory has to leave. Luckily, he can hear their whole conversation from outside the door. In order to put the awkwardness on the DL, they decided to come up with names other than their school names. Why Rory wishes to call him Norman.. or Alfred, who knows??? This episode just doesn’t end with its awkwardness.

Sookie is mad that she can’t get her squash blossoms, as Jackson wants to give her his new hybrid a zucchini tush.

Lorelai wants to go skating with Rory and Rory suggests that they invite Max. It’s quite clear that Lorelai becomes uncomfortable with the fact that Rory likes the idea of her and Max being together. Max seems to be feeling this drift as well as he asks what her mother has been up to.

While at Chilton, Max corners Lorelai. While Lorelai tries hard to resist, she can’t help it and gets caught by Paris. Paris quickly spreads the world to take focus off of her and Lorelai and Max are the talk of the town.

Rory and Lorelai fight over this, but its even worse when Emily catches wind of the news.

Though Paris and Rory don’t get along, we do get a glimpse into what their possibly friendship may be.

Sookie finally asks jackson out on a date!!!!!! At least the show can have one consistently adorable couple!

The episode ends with Lorelai getting her heart broken though when Max says they should spend some time apart to get their thoughts straight. Luckily, Rory is always there to support her mother though. Screen Shot 2014-11-30 at 1.17.02 AM


Favorite Quote:

Rory: “You know what it means when a man loans you a book?”

Lorelai: “Than he is done reading it?”

Rory: “Yep”


 

Lorelai: “Wow, Zero to jackass in 3.2 seconds….. Do you want to sing more Ricky Martin to me?”


 

Emily: “Mistake! Is that what you call it?!?”

Lorelai: “Well I tried to call it Al, but it would only respond to mistake.”


Time Warp:

Lorelai talks about how if she kept watching “This Old House” she would be 1000 lbs. (I have to say that I didn’t even realize this show was still on until I looked up the link for it).

Max loans Lorelai a Marcel Proust book

proust

Louise claims that Max probably has a Arthur Miller/Marilyn Monroe thing going on

And Lorelai says that her and Rory going skating will be just like Nancy Kerrigan/Tanya Harding.

THE REFERENCES IN THIS EPISODE NEVER END!

My favorite though is Sookie singing Ricky Martin in the kitchen


Until next episode, Oy with the Poodles!!! -L
