I had to watch the bleed-over on my Supernatural recording but from what I could piece together:

Spoiler:
They showed Rory telling Logan "I love you" and he said "You love me?" and then they showed Richard saying something like "They are too young to consider marriage". Then the voice-over said something about "A secret will be revealed" and they showed Richard showing up at Lorelai's door to tell her something.

Emily telling Logan's mom off was awesome

The dinner at Sookie's reminded me of the SNL skit with Will Ferrell "Get off the shed"

Also liked Paris's rant about no money and talking about herself at the bank screaming "Atica".

From the preview it looks like
Spoiler:
Emily walks in on Logan and Rory in bed together

The Will Ferrell skit was the first thing that I thought about as well during that ridiculous dinner scene.

As for the spoilers:

Spoiler:
Rory and Logan are definitely caught in bed together. I read that spoiler a while ago, and am surprised it hasn't happened yet

Best episode of the season so far.

Paris was hilarious with her ranting about the subjugation of the working class.

Loved Emily's calm cool attack against Mrs. Huntsberger.

I was wondering the same thing. My only guess is that he realizes Logan's dad has potentially doomed Rory to a life of being a DAR woman when she is capable of much more.

A good episode. Moved a lot of things forward for Rory after several Lorelai-heavy episodes, but still managed to fit in good stuff for Lorelai and Luke. I loved the reactions at the Miss Patty show, especially their thoughts on the kids interacting with the audience. Sookie:"This is uncomfortable!"

I took that look to mean "My wonderful perfect granddaughter-- how sad that someone could hurt her and crush her dreams like that."

It ties in with earlier how he was bragging to Emily that Rory can do anything she tries. Which, I wondered, was he even in Rory's life to know that she knew all the state capitals by age 3, etc.? He was rattling off all her accomplishments and wondered how he would know that since I thought they had no contact with Rory while she was growing up.

The funniest thing about the dinner scene to me was after all of Jackson's yelling at his son to turn the TV down, the camera pans over to the livingroom to reveal a toddler who is clearly too young to understand or to even be able to walk over to the TV and turn it down.

I took it the same way as DRG...

... he's looking at Rory and realizing that she has so much potential for greatness, but that by encouraging her to "find herself" and leave Yale at the end of Season 4, he's setting her up to be nothing more than one of the DAR ladies. He's regretting his own actions, his doubts about Lorelai's story, etc.


Great episode, by the way. I thought it was the best one so far this season.

Yeah, I also thought he was realizing that he was wrong (and that Lorelai was right) about Rory.

On the very first Friday Night Dinner, Emily has a good line about how nice it is to see them on a day when the banks are open. So I guess they did make appearances 2 or 3 times a year at certain holidays. Maybe Rory's knowledge & achievements were sort of used as party tricks to take the focus off of Lorelai on those occasions.

I liked the episode more than I expected & I've really been appreciating Sookie the last 2 weeks. She owned last week's show. She had great lines with perfect delivery. "Uncle Artie hugged me too long" & something about cracking a window for her mother-in-law are 2 that I remember.

Kirk's theater piece may have topped his short film from a couple of seasons ago.

Is it a coincidence that the best episode of the season did not feature an appearance by Trist- I mean, Logan or his friends? Hmmm....

Wasn't Logan in this episode via a cell phone call between him and Rory?

I thought last week's episode was better than this week's episode.

I couldn't figure out if I was supposed to pity Luke's "oh so lonesome" camping trip, or that he finds that he can't function without being near Lorelai now.

There was a nice piece at the dinner scene that no one's mentioned yet where they are commenting on the glut of 'forensic' shows on tv. Emily made a similar comment a couple of seasons ago. I think it was the flashback episode:

Emily: I donít watch that much television. I donít find forensic work quite as fascinating as the rest of the world.

At the recital before Kirk was performing didnt Miss Patty say she taught him as a kid and that he was doing something similar to what he did before? But in the first season Kirk didnt know who she was. Maybe I misheard what she said.

If you're looking for continuity errors involving Kirk, in the second episode of season one, the guy who now plays Kirk was actually playing a guy named Mick

Is it me, or does Rory look better than Lorelai this season ? I guess it's the bangs.

Rory looked better than Lorelai in season 1; it just wasn't appropriate to say so.

No, that was nother one of Kirk's quirky jobs; playing a guy named Mick.

does anyone know from what musical or from where else the song "We've Got Magic to Do" is from? My knowledge of musicals is rather limited, although I know I have heard that song before, and I just can't place it and it is driving me nuts.

These were my thoughts as well. I just rewatched season 1 on dvd this past week (thanks to the WB tv dvd sets sale) and Emily's reaction and comments about Lorelai showing up out of the blue is fresh in my mind. It seems to me that they were present in each other's lives at formal events.... just not in any real emotional way. Emily and Richard had never been to their house in Stars Hollow until Rory's birthday in Season 1, but it is suggested that Rory and Lorelai had been to their house a few times a year for the major holidays. The whole party tricks thing would make perfect sense.
