    Nitpicking

    ^^^ So much this, clack. We met Richard as he was being phased out of what must have been a smaller privately-held insurance company. That means he wouldn’t have been getting the raises the young hotshots were getting. Even today Hartford, CT insurance VPs earn around $250,000 before bonuses. And Richard really sucked at money management if he put his retirement at risk when he was so old. About the building, the only mitigating factor could be Richard’s father’s foundation, which I would have presumed he had some role in after Trix died. Simply a recent renovation of a building at Yale, the chemistry lab, cost $84 million and took years in this decade. No way a new astronomy center could have been executed in half a year back then. If we seriously postulate that they could afford the building, a $250,000 trust fund for Rory would have been trivial and not worth thinking about, much less fighting about. Gilmore money voodoo. Sheesh.

    21 for the win because Emily and Richard had the most refined structure of controlling the girls’ lives. They worked often in sync and were committed to having these adult, intelligent women become what the elder Gilmores had tried to thrust on them for decades. Christopher is a ghost in comparison. 17 definitely deserves second place, though, because, well Christopher.
  5. Good catch. Also good technique for dealing with his wife. Richard always had his own ideas and plans and didn’t communicate them well. If Rory hadn’t been a crybaby we might have seen more. Remember after he took Luke golfing? Emily chastised him for it, but he was playing multiple angles by not objecting to her antics, trying to bring Luke up to country club standards, and directing him to do business the Gilmore way.

    #2 should go because the worst things Christopher or Lorelai did are de facto worse than the worst thing Straub did because they are key players in the GG universe. Also influenced by the sheer depth of the things that the elder Gilmores did over time.

    3 and only because Rory was in a safe place at her grandparents’ house. Chris and Lorelai jumped into rebellious teenager mode when they were together. That made it easier for Lorelai to slip up on the mothering job for an hour. Or less, given that it was Chris. (Heehee! Dirty!) Not to mention alcohol. Was Lorelai ever not misbehaving when she was drunk? One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.

    10,24 Both are Emily being callous, but they don’t rise to her usual standard of backstabbing or otherwise trying to control her adult child’s life.
