The Lorelais' First Day At Chilton

Lorelai marches into a salon, walks over to Emily, and knocks on her hair dryer. She tells Emily that she cancelled the DSL order. She says she likes her Internet slower. "We can turn it on, walk around, do a little dance, make a sandwich. With DSL, there's no dancing, no walking, and we starve. It'd be all work and no play. Have you not seen The Shining, Mom?" The bickering continues for a while as Lorelai says she'll be buying all of Rory's things for school, and she doesn't need Emily's help. Lorelai says she'll be making the decisions. She angrily asks if the salon validates parking. Emily angrily responds that there's a stamp by the door.

Lorelai picks up Rory from school. Rory drops her bag and hugs Lorelai. They share how much their days sucked. Lorelai starts to pull away, but Rory demands a longer hug. Lorelai grabs Rory's heavy bag and puts it in the Jeep. Rory recaps the episode and says that they kept calling her Mary. Lorelai says it means like Virgin Mary. "Means they think you look like a goodie-goodie." If they thought she was a slut they would have added a "Magdeline" to it. Rory says the Biblical insults prove this is a smart school.

Lorelai, Rory, and Lane walk down the street discussing school without Rory. They miss each other. Lorelai says that on Tuesdays and Thursdays, they could hang out in Hartford when she's in town for her Business Classes. Lane says she's late for dinner and gives Rory her cool clothes and hair accessories. She complains about the tofu her mother's feeding her these days and then walks off.

Rory says she wishes she knew how to get Paris off her back. Lorelai says she knew a Paris once. Rory asks how she took care of her. "I got pregnant and dropped out." Lorelai asks if she should call someone to help Rory with it. Rory says she'll take care of it. Lorelai asks Rory if she thinks Mr. Nutrition is cute. Rory says Lorelai can't date him because they'll break up and they'll never be able to eat there again. Rory tries to set up Lorelai with a different diner owner. As they giggle off into the distance, Mr. Nutrition walks out of the diner and watches the girls walk away.

Next week, Rory bonds with her grandfather. This, of course, causes more bickering between Lorelai and her parents. I'm starting to think I got robbed of a quirky, enriching, family-supported childhood. Rory doesn't watch nearly enough television to count as a teenaged girl.
