Although her character provides comic moments, hers is one of the darker characters on the show, being manipulative and vindictive at times. Though this is often not truly the case when it comes to her family. Emily deeply felt the loss of Lorelai and Rory when they left the house a year after Rory was born. Her "manipulations" are often an attempt to provide what she believes to be the best for Lorelai, Rory and Richard and to help Lorelai and Christopher be the family "they should be". The hurt she has felt over the years from missing out on this life is obvious, especially when she learns that Lorelai had broken her leg or when she first sees where Rory grew up at the Independence Inn. She has reached out to Lorelai numerous times over the years and holds people at arms length as much as her daughter does. When Jason decides on Atlantic City instead of a "stuffy old cocktail party" telling Emily she could "relax and hang out" her conversation with Lorelai was heartfelt and honest, leaving herself vulnerable with her daughter for just a moment. She is very loyal and her family is very important, this is evidenced best when coming to the aid of Lorelai when Christopher ambushes Friday night dinner, asking him to leave, and when she discovers that Lorelai has a back spasm she stays with her to make sure she is looked after. She is often a misunderstood character with some wanting only to see the negative due to her treatment of Lorelai, though in truth they are much more alike than either of them would ever admit. As far as their relationship goes in comparison to Lorelai's relationship with Rory, Lorelai and Emily are "mother and daughter always" while she and Rory are "best friends first, mother and daughter second."
She met Richard at a Yale college party, when he was engaged to Pennilyn Lott. Emily was the "other woman" until Richard broke it off with his fiancée, after Emily "showed up to the party in that blue dress." Richard proposed to Emily by a bench at Yale University (subsequently replaced by a trash can) and they married in 1965, when Emily was 23. Richard and Emily separate after Richard pushes Jason out in order to return to Floyd Stiles's company and avoid a lawsuit. For a short time Emily stays at a hotel, but returns to the house with Richard moving into the Pool House. They are shortly at a detente when a stray dog shows up and they both care for it until its owners were found. However, this is short lived and Emily attempts to date, going to dinner with another man after asking Lorelai how it "worked". Richard and Emily only truly reunite when Richard drove into the back of her car at a charity event, after seeing her speaking with the man she had been to dinner with. When they return home they were both obviously unhappy with the situation and Richard moves back into the main house.
Later, she wears a pair of low-rise jeans that are one bend away from ass crack exposure. I could seriously spend this entire recap talking solely about how horrendous all of the outfits are. (Dean's striped polo shirt, deep tan, and signature necklace!)
Best song of the episode:The only song in this episode is "Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer" and I refuse to say it's the best. Does anyone actually like this song? Listen to it once and it will follow you around for WEEKS. The only way to get rid of it is to replace it with another, equally awful earworm. Lorelai recommends ""It's a Small World (After All)," but I'd personally go with "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)." This song plays in "Secrets and Loans" and ruins my life every time.
I started college in 2002. I was at UCSC and I remember when Facebook was released there. You could only connect to other universities at the time. Everyone communicated via AIM and regularly crafting your away messages was a whole thing. It was also the year I started actually talking to my mom more because I missed her for the first time in my whole life.
If you\u2019re a regular reader, you know I\u2019ve been putting up a fuss from episode one about how Gilmore Girls\u2019 sweet spot ends after season three, and all that follows is to be met with dread and skepticism, and while I\u2019m not quite ready to part with this opinion, season four kind of caught me off-guard with how much I don\u2019t actually hate it? It\u2019s kind of charming? Surly and/or Weird Rory lives? What\u2019s happening? Maybe what\u2019s happening is that I haven\u2019t watched season four in a decade, and I only remember the bad parts. But there are some (some!) redeeming qualities here! Why did none of you tell me? (You probably did.)
The storyline involving Lorelai and Rory\u2019s waylaid pre-Yale plans is relatable content for anyone driven to overcontrol in the face of a major life transition only to be totally disrupted by\u2026 life. I love that this whole episode is basically Rory and Lorelai trying to find time to watch The Godfather movies as a way to hold onto the magic of their movie-watching traditions before Rory\u2019s departure, and they end up\u2026 watching ballroom dancing competitions at Emily\u2019s house. It\u2019s totally not what they planned, and totally comforting just the same. Rory and Lorelai making snide comments about obscure TV is really what they do best, and Emily\u2019s ballroom dancing competition feels like a nod to previous seasons\u2019 deep-cut entertainment choices (see also: Grey Gardens, The Brady Bunch Variety Hour). I find the prominence of the Lord of the Rings franchise in this season a weird turn for a show that loves to mine the archives, so this ballroom-watching scene? It\u2019s perfect. It\u2019s why I love this show.
I love the final scene, but that biscotti was crunchy to begin with and after the trip all the way over from Italy it\u2019s probably hard enough to crack a filling. Besides, we know Lorelai and Rory are coffee fiends, so why aren\u2019t they dunking their biscotti in cups of late-night decaf, which Emily would probably insist on summoning from her maligned domestic worker of the week? I don\u2019t buy it.
After all, I had the opposite experience entirely from Rory\u2019s when it came to leaving home for the first time to go to college. First of all, I was headed across the country, from Seattle to Western Massachusetts. I had no choice but to fly. And I did it on my own. Cross-country plane tickets were expensive, after all, and money at home was tight. Plus, I had been counting the days until I could get out of my hometown and off on my big college adventure for years (this part, I guess, is pretty similar to Rory and her college paraphernalia-covered childhood bedroom). And I figured as soon as I got to school there would be all kinds of orientation things to attend. Why should my mom shell out money for a plane ticket only to have me immediately ditch her for my new life?
Your first night at college is supposed to be scary and awkward and weird, and Lorelai should have understood that and called Rory after the SOS text (also confusing: suddenly Lorelai only has a pager, not a cell phone? Doesn\u2019t Rory have a dorm phone?) and told her to stick it out, go to an orientation event, or hell, hang out with Paris, who Rory already knows! Instead, we start to see this mother-daughter best friendship go from sometimes too close to very likely unhealthy because Lorelai can\u2019t just push the baby bird from the nest, and I am starting to see why the show jumps the shark so badly in coming seasons...
However, even though I couldn\u2019t fathom calling my mom and having her book a flight across the country to hang with me when things were scary in my first day away at school (both because that total unknown was actually thrilling to me, and because she never would have!), this episode did bring back a memory of my first night in my dorm room with my first year roommate. She was in more of a Rory situation: She was local, from a nearby town in Western Mass., and was close to her mom and sister. After a day of orientation activities, as we got ready for bed, she called home. When she hung up she started to cry. \u201CThis is so silly,\u201D she told me. \u201CI\u2019m homesick and I\u2019m only 30 minutes from home! You\u2019re from across the country!\u201D
Tana, the 15-year-old suitemate, is supposed to be so socially awkward that she can\u2019t make small talk or introduce herself? But Rory just kind of stares at her and points and only says \u201Chello?\u201D instead of introducing herself like someone with even a modicum of social skills, so, who is the real socially awkward one here?
Part of Lorelai\u2019s master first night of college fun plan is to create a rating system of all the restaurants that deliver food in the area, which is very Gilmore and we love a system, but one of the categories they are ranking is \u201Ccuteness of delivery guys\u201D which a) implies only guys deliver food, b) is obviously objectifying, and c) though I might forgive a group of 18-year-olds for spearheading something like this, when it\u2019s a 35-year-old woman on a college campus, it\u2019s pretty cringe!
Emily : All right, fine. Sweetie's father was a very poor man - so poor that Sweetie and her four siblings all had to sleep in a hollowed-out tree trunk because the house was only big enough for their parents. One winter, there was no food, so Sweetie crawled out of her trunk, wrapped her feet in newspaper, and walked forty miles in the snow to the nearest town, where she stumbled into a candy store. The owner took pity on her and gave her bags of candy, a dill pickle, and drove her back to her family. He promptly offered a job to her father, who gladly accepted and eventually owned that store and turned it into one of the most important candy emporiums in the world. And that is how she got the name Sweetie. There, how was that? 2b1af7f3a8
