  1. You got it! And now I'm craving pizza and cheesy bread...
  2. Sunnyheart, that seriously just made my entire night! I'm a bit baffled as to why even someone as deluded as Jen thought she might find Dan in the shower, though. It seems painfully clear that our hygiene-challenged Dan would never be found THERE. :) All the fics on this thread are roughly 12 zillion times more entertaining and satisfying for me than what we're actually seeing onscreen.
  3. Well, she DID learn how to balance her required nightly 'partying' with snotty, vapid brats with her few hours of community service (where she, of course, immediately became the respected leader of the group....riiiight) and her part-time 'job' sucking up to members of the DAR, nolie. And she managed to do all this while having to 'rough it' in a luxury, newly decorated bungalow equipped with maid service and three meals a day provided to her by professional cooks...give her some credit! ;) I snark on Rory because I really do adore her, by the way. I love and relate to early Seasons Rory
  4. I don't disagree, nolie! The problem for me is that the writing and acting combined to come across to me as if Luke and Lorelai were both just looking for excuses to postpone the wedding date, as legitimate as those excuses may objectively have been. At times they seemed to view June 3rd with all the enthusiasm of death row inmates trying to wriggle out of their scheduled date of execution :) And I've already expressed this one, but I think the titular Gilmore girls not talking for a freaking third of the season---and then not learning or changing anyway as a result of said rift---was ever
  5. The Fundamental Things Apply! Let's not even discuss how many times I've watched this episode...
  6. I seriously think this may be my very favorite episode of the entire series. If I could keep only two episodes, this would be one of them. (Along with the Pilot...yes, I'm odd!) As others have said, it's one of those episodes that manages to combine humor, suspense, drama and that trademark SPN angst with great success. The brothers' relationship is spot on here: there's bickering and disagreement as to how they should proceed, yet still deep affection and the reminder that each needs the other. (Remember when the show used to imply that Dean and Sam made each other's lives BETTER rather than,
  7. I'm not a fan of flashbacks in general, and this episode doesn't do much to change my mind. Otherwise, though, I totally share the general adoration for this one: it's really funny, really touching, really well paced and really, really rewatchable at any time of year. It's also responsible for making me use the word "fudging" far more than is generally considered normal :)
  8. ADFKT! Voulez vous cocuhet avec---um, never mind :)

    GG Fantasy

    Ooooh, how did I not consider this angle until now?! She annoys the heck out of me, too, but I didn't pick her as my one recast because 1) she wasn't around quite enough to matter and 2) I think I'd probably hate her role as written regardless of who played her :)

    Attempting to answer my own questions... If I could keep just 5-10 episodes of the entire series, I'd pick..... Mine change with ridiculous frequency, but today I'll go with Rory's Birthday Parties, Double Date; Like Mother, Like Daughter; Run Away Little Boy; Lorelai's Graduation Day; Lazy Hazy Crazy Days; They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They?; Those Are Strings, Pinnochio; The Fundamental Things Apply; Bon Voyage. And, like, 70-80 more :) If I could own just TWO of the seven seasons, I'd choose.... Seasons 2 and 3! I love S1 and S4 and some individual episodes from S5 and S7, bu

    Awww, it makes me so happy that people are still around to answer my random GG questions :) Here are a few more: If I could keep just 5-10 episodes of the entire series, I'd pick..... If I could own just TWO of the seven seasons, I'd choose.... If I could recast just ONE role, it would be... If I had to have one of these characters as my mother, I'd pick... If I could make one character change careers, I'd have _____ become a _____
  12. The Party's Over! Or at least it will be once TJ arrives :)
  13. I'll take it a step further and say I'll take Jack over 'woobie bad boy' racist, vicious (though of course, TV has taught me that it's totally okay to be racist and vicious if you're a snarky bad boy suffering from not-so-secret inner angst!) Sawyer any day. I also hold the UO that Matthew Fox gave a great, underrated performance in what was often a humorless, thankless, hard-to-like role. And as if this isn't unpopular enough...I like Kate a lot more than the far more beloved but smirky, flat, relentlessly bland Juliet. (Though, sadly, I thought pretty much all of Lost's female characters wer
  14. I totally agree with the fondness for Jordan! I love that she had an actual personality, how she was shown to be (gasp) imperfect yet still ultimately smart and competent, and how she added a certain edge and energy to our (IMUO!) somewhat flatly and unrealistically perfect, vanilla-ish team that IMO had been missing since the departure of the (also flawed and imperfect) Gideon and Elle and since Rossi became a blandly agreeable, "go team!", just-another-dully-perfect-member-of-the-family after a promising first few episodes of being edgy and arrogant and stubborn. I also hold the UO that her
  15. Hee---yeah, maybe this one should be a 2-3 day theme?! Pilot!
  16. Hee---glad you like the theme, nolie, though it's already made me starving :) Scene in a Mall!
  17. And, god, there really is no escaping this godawful storyline, is there?! On the few other soaps I've watched, at least when certain characters and storylines grated beyond belief there were others to focus on. The DooL writers, however, seem capable of writing just one lame, endlessly dragged, out, cringe-inducingly sloppy storyline at a time while nearly every single other character just stands around and rambles about it ad nauseam. As someone else noted, Kristen may have to be my new favorite by default, if only because she's pretty much the only character who talks about *something* other
  18. What scares me, though, is that I don't think Sami's now seemingly inevitable reconciliation with EJ is supposed to be the manifestation of her insecurities and emotional issues that some of us perceive it to be. I think the writers view it as 'romantic' and a happily ever after. *shudder* The Grand Canyon-esque gap between what the writers seem to want to depict and what I actually see is widening by the day.
  19. 3. Luke and Lorelai play cards and flirt while Luke musters the courage to ask Lorelai out (Double Date) 4. Luke makes Lorelai a Santa Burger to cheer her up (Forgiveness and Stuff) 5. Luke closes the diner immediately to drive Lorelai to the hospital (Forgiveness and Stuff) 6. Luke and Lorelai huddle in the corner and have a 'moment' while planning to paint Luke's diner (That Damn Donna Reed) 7. Luke tells Lorelai about his dad (TDDR) 8. Luke comes by to search for Lorelai's lost chick (TDDR) 14. Lorelai gives Luke the blue hat. Forgiveness and Stuff 16. The "you always look good scene" in th
  20. Paris is Burning! Today's theme: Food, glorious food :) Any scenes in which any sort of food is present, regardless of whether or not someone is eating it.
