    Gilmore Girls Elimination Game

    Okay I went ahead and added a couple more so we could start voting! Voting against three. Link to screencaps if anyone wants to refresh their memory - https://www.homeofthenutty.com/gilmoregirls/screencaps/ Favorite 'You Look Wonderful Tonight' Moments 1. Pretty much everyone in their WWII-era outfits for the dance marathon. "Wait 'til you see Jackson's suit. It makes me want to ration sugar." (They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They?) 2. Sookie in her orange and yellow floral print hair scarf when she's cooking at Luke's after the Inn burns. "Luke and Sookie have worked things out." "There does seem to be a grudging respect thing going on." (A Tale of Poes and Fire) 3. Jess when he's soaking wet after helping Rory turn off the sprinklers at the neighbor's house. "Aw, you made it look so easy." "Yeah, it was loose. You just had to press down and give it a good twist, that’s all." (Eight O'Clock at the Oasis) 4. Sookie freaks out and comes to the Inn in her wedding dress the night before the wedding. "Hey, what happened?" "I don’t know." "When I left you, you were fine." "I know. And when I went home, I was fine. And when I went to bed, I was fine. And then I had this dream where suddenly my dress is really, really short in back, you know? So I bolt out of bed and I put my dress on, and it looks okay. But then I panic – what if I’m remembering the dream wrong? What if my dress isn’t really screwed up, what if it’s my veil? So I put on the veil, then I remember I’m serving salmon puffs. Salmon puffs! Okay, completely wrong, so I had to rush over here and try to find another first course, and then I walk in and these daffodils, just. . .something snapped and that’s when you walked in here." (I Can't Get Started) 5. Lorelai is supposed to meet with Luke to ask him for money for the Dragonfly. He's wearing the clothes she bought for him way back in S1. "I'm sorry that I made you get all dressed up." "That's okay, it's good for me to do it every once in awhile. It reminds me why I'm not an accountant." (The Incredible Shrinking Lorelais) 6. Rory wears a tux to be the "Best Man" in Emily and Richard's vow renewal. "What's with being all k.d.lang?" "It was for my grandparents' vow renewal. I was the best man." "Is that kinky or something?" (Wedding Bell Blues) 7. Lane has a proper Korean wedding with a red silk dress for her and blue silk robe for Zach, before her second, Americanized wedding after her grandmother leaves. "Thank you for doing two ceremonies. It was very important to your grandmother." "It was fun, made my wedding seem a little more special." (I Get a Sidekick Out of You) 8. Lorelai makes some special alterations to Lane's American wedding dress, including removing the pants and adding a tearaway skirt. "Yes! My wife's got legs!" (I Get a Sidekick Out of You) 9. Lorelai and Emily wear matching red outfits at the Chilton fundraiser fashion show. "Be nice." "You look like Nancy Reagan." (Like Mother, Like Daughter) 10. Luke answers the door all rumpled and sexy when Lorelai, not realizing he goes to bed early, wakes him up to celebrate Jackson's town selectman win. " 'Goes to bed early,' I gotta remember that." (Tippecanoe and Taylor, Too) 11. Michel works at a fancy hipster hotel after the Independence Inn has burned down. He has head-to-toe black clothes, a headset, and happy, happy hair. "Yes, this place is impressive, isn't it? I mean, the uniform alone - like working in your jammies. And these headsets, are they not fabulous? Especially when, for example, you're in the bathroom, a place one would normally choose to be alone, then suddenly, bang, someone is yakking in your ear. How delightful. You can never get lonely." (Chicken or Beef) 12. Trix insists on taking Emily and Lorelai to High Tea to discuss Rory's trust fund. She is wearing a blouse with a high collar and heavy brocade and floral embroidery around the neckline. "Raising your voice during high tea, who ever heard of such a thing. It’s like Fergie all over again." (The Third Lorelai) 13. Taylor plays the part of a British General during the new reenactment ceremony, who is waylaid by a woman of questionable morals before the battle. "Got a big casting session soon to pick the lucky townswoman to play our special lady." "She should be thin." "But not too thin." "Know anybody who fits the bill?" "Not off-hand, but if I run into any moderately-weighted whores in my travels, I'll let you know." (Women of Questionable Morals) 14. Liz and TJ have a full-on Renaissance wedding. "My dress is about a zillion years old with flowing sleeves. I'm like Vanessa Redgrave in Camelot. Seriously, I love myself in this dress." (Last Week Fights, This Week Tights) 15. Lorelai comes to bed wearing Luke's shirt and carrying a whole pie. "Ah! It's heaven! One quick trip downstairs and I have all the treats I want. You're like Willy Wonka, but hotter." "I am not hotter than Willy Wonka." "Slap on a purple top hat and you're close." (But Not as Cute as Pushkin) 16. Rory and Dean have a three-month anniversary date at a fancy Italian restaurant. "You look cute. "I'm eating." "Well, you eat cute." (Star-Crossed Lovers and Other Strangers) 17. Rory wears the ball gown Logan picked out for her at the LaDB event. "I got your 'event integrity' right here, mister." (You Jump, I Jump, Jack) 18. Rachel shows back up unexpectedly in Luke's life. She looks amazing, despite having just travelled halfway around the world. "Hey, how's it going?" (Star-Crossed Lovers and Other Strangers) 19. Peyton comes to pick Lorelai up for their first - and last - date. Lorelai warns Rory that if Peyton ends up to not be as cute as she thinks she remembers, Rory's going to suddenly be very ill with a fever. "You’re feeling just fine." (Eight O'Clock at the Oasis) 20. Luke is draped with a plaid sheet after he and Lorelai sleep together for the first time. "I can't believe you kept that horoscope." "You're just lucky I never clean out my wallet." (Written in the Stars) 21. Luke and Lorelai arrive at the vow renewal. Luke is wearing a gray trenchcoat and black gloves over his suit. He didn't know he was supposed to bring his clothes instead of wear them there. "I can have my tailor steam out those trousers for you." (Wedding Bell Blues) 22. Lorelai invites Luke over to watch movies. She's wearing glasses and a black and red argyle sweater vest over a white collared shirt and looks particularly cute. "Rory and I would always rent a bunch of movies, order food -- it was our thing. Now she's at school and busy, so why don't you come over? It might be fun." "Okay." "Yeah?" "Sure, what else have I got to do?" "Ah, I love when men say that to me." (The Fundamental Things Apply) 23. Lorelai wears something just a little bit fruity for Liz's Renaissance wedding - a pink dress with a garland of flowers in her hair. "Greetings, my lord. Your lady hath arrived to be escorted forthwith." (Last Week Fights, This Week Tights) 24. Rory and Logan go to dinner with Mitchum for Logan's birthday. Rory is wearing a simple but elegant black dress with long curly hair. "To my son -- now a quarter of a century old. Not bad. And to his lovely girlfriend -- the beautiful, and always witty, Rory." (I'm a Kayak, Hear Me Roar) 25. Sookie gets dolled up for her first date with Jackson. "You look pretty!" "I do?" "Uh huh." "Aw, thank you. I should cancel." "Okay, let's do your lips first." (Double Date) 26. Luke and Chris get into a fight in the middle of town square. Luke takes off his leather jacket and Chris whips off his scarf as they stalk toward each other. (Merry Fisticuffs) 27. Luke and Lorelai both look particularly nice at dinner at the trial run of the Dragonfly. They share a 'look' over salad. (Raincoats & Recipes) 28. Lorelai wears a nice, conservative business suit to speak at Stars Hollow High for business day. . .where she gets ambushed by the students asking questions about her getting pregnant at 16 and, later, gets ambushed again by the mom squad for not deflecting their questions enough. "What was with those kids? So curious, so full of questions. Shouldn’t their brains be completely fried on TV and video games by now?" (One's Got Class and the Other One Dyes) 29. Lorelai in her knee-length pink coat when she and snow are in a fight. "Oh no! No! Don’t even try to make up with me now! You and me are through! You - stupid - hate - you!" (Women of Questionable Morals) 30. Rory, with her recent haircut, hiding behind a tree watching the newly wed Dean and Lindsey come out of the church. (The way the sunset lights her face and makes her blue eyes pop is just breathtaking IMO.) (Chicken or Beef)

    The X-Files

    Something else occured to me yesterday.....I remembered reading a fanfic several years ago which made mention of the Fox being linked to Native American folklore as a Protector. At the time I read it, that was just one more emotionally jarring irony about (Fox) Mulder not being able to protect Samantha the night she was taken. I didn't think much of it but it stayed with me because it was just that sad, you know? But since lately I can't let go of this idea of Teena Mulder being far more involved with the Consortium than Mulder (or we) ever realized, and knowing what we know now about CSM actually being Mulder's father even though Bill Mulder didn't even realize (at least at first) that CSM even knew Teena let alone that they had a relationship......I got to wondering if the plan to take a family member from each person in the Consortium, and the cover-up stories that would be given, may have dated back to before Mulder was even born. Did Teena and CSM always know that Teena's younger child would be the one taken, and giving the older child a lifelong guilt trip about it was just part of the plan? Was he given the name Fox on purpose, as kind of a sick irony, rather than just a terribly sad coincidence? I will probably never like Teena Mulder again, tbh. She has leaped far closer to the top of my Hated Characters List than her husband, for sure. Here is a snippet of info I found about the folklore, btw -

Taylor plays the part of a British General during the new reenactment ceremony, who is waylaid by a woman of questionable morals before the battle. "Got a big casting session soon to pick the lucky townswoman to play our special lady." "She should be thin." "But not too thin." "Know anybody who fits the bill?" "Not off-hand, but if I run into any moderately-weighted whores in my travels, I'll let you know." (Women of Questionable Morals) 14. Liz and TJ have a full-on Renaissance wedding. "My dress is about a zillion years old with flowing sleeves. I'm like Vanessa Redgrave in Camelot. Seriously, I love myself in this dress." (Last Week Fights, This Week Tights) 15. Lorelai comes to bed wearing Luke's shirt and carrying a whole pie. "Ah! It's heaven! One quick trip downstairs and I have all the treats I want. You're like Willy Wonka, but hotter." "I am not hotter than Willy Wonka." "Slap on a purple top hat and you're close." (But Not as Cute as Pushkin) 16. Rory and Dean have a three-month anniversary date at a fancy Italian restaurant. "You look cute. "I'm eating." "Well, you eat cute." (Star-Crossed Lovers and Other Strangers) 17. Rory wears the ball gown Logan picked out for her at the LaDB event.

    Favorite 'You Look Wonderful Tonight' Moments 1. Pretty much everyone in their WWII-era outfits for the dance marathon. "Wait 'til you see Jackson's suit. It makes me want to ration sugar." (They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They?) 2. Sookie in her orange and yellow floral print hair scarf when she's cooking at Luke's after the Inn burns. "Luke and Sookie have worked things out." "There does seem to be a grudging respect thing going on." (A Tale of Poes and Fire) 3. Jess when he's soaking wet after helping Rory turn off the sprinklers at the neighbor's house. "Aw, you made it look so easy." "Yeah, it was loose. You just had to press down and give it a good twist, that’s all." (Eight O'Clock at the Oasis) 4. Sookie freaks out and comes to the Inn in her wedding dress the night before the wedding. "Hey, what happened?" "I don’t know." "When I left you, you were fine." "I know. And when I went home, I was fine. And when I went to bed, I was fine. And then I had this dream where suddenly my dress is really, really short in back, you know? So I bolt out of bed and I put my dress on, and it looks okay. But then I panic – what if I’m remembering the dream wrong? What if my dress isn’t really screwed up, what if it’s my veil? So I put on the veil, then I remember I’m serving salmon puffs. Salmon puffs! Okay, completely wrong, so I had to rush over here and try to find another first course, and then I walk in and these daffodils, just. . .something snapped and that’s when you walked in here." (I Can't Get Started) 5. Lorelai is supposed to meet with Luke to ask him for money for the Dragonfly. He's wearing the clothes she bought for him way back in S1.

Lane has a proper Korean wedding with a red silk dress for her and blue silk robe for Zach, before her second, Americanized wedding after her grandmother leaves. "Thank you for doing two ceremonies.

    Okay so let's start listing moments we personally find a character particularly attractive - whether that's due to their hair, outfit, overall look, whatever. We'll be wading on the shallow end for this one, ha! But that's okay, it's fun to be shallow every once in a while. I'd like everyone to contribute to this one, too, if they can, since attractiveness is a highly subjective thing. By the way, here is the site I use to find screencaps from all the episodes, if you need a little help picturing anything. https://www.homeofthenutty.com/gilmoregirls/screencaps/index.php I'll add a couple of mine to start.

    The X-Files

    Just finished watching Paper Hearts. I always forget what an emotionally exhausting, yet fabulous, episode this is. The guy playing Roche is perfect, absolutely perfect. He has that quietly sinister aura about him that makes you believe he could be a perfectly trustworthy, bland salesman who also happens to be a serial murderer of little girls. Gak. Everybody was pitch perfect in this episode, really. Skinner angry, Mulder horrified at himself yet knowing they are working on a very short time table so he has to buck up, Scully concerned yet doing whatever she has to do to help Mulder think through what Roche's next move might be. I'm also intrigued by the thought of Mulder's memories holding the fact that Teena and Bill made "the choice" together and Bill ultimately went along with whatever Teena wanted. That reinforces my beliefs about Teena Mulder (pointed out in previous posts) very well. Oh, this show.

    I'm jotting all these ideas down! Keep them coming! Tonight's really busy and stressful (oldest son goes off to college for the first time tomorrow) but I'll start putting together a game tomorrow afternoon probably.

    I just like food, ha ha. It barely eeks out, but the winner of GG foods we'd most like to try is - Lorelai and Rory sample wedding cakes at Weston's. "Um, can I ask you an ethical question?" "Mmm." "Is it right to be sampling wedding cakes when Sookie's making ours for free?" "What is right anyway, you know? Who defines right? And if eating cake is wrong, I don't want to be right." "I'm bringing out a mocha crunch cream!" "So, ethics?" "Highly subjective and completely overrated." (Red Light on the Wedding Night) Even though I would have also happily eaten anything Sookie brought over, I'm glad this one was the winner. Taquitos, chili fries, mac n cheese, mini hot dogs.....these are all things easily made at home (even if you buy frozen and heat it up). A good wedding cake on the other hand? You either have to have a ton of patience (not to mention talent in the area), go to a wedding, or be really eccentric and buy yourself one. So if I had to choose I would also go for sampling wedding cakes. Yum!! This game was SO much fun! I'm glad the idea was brought up (I don't remember at the moment who gets the credit for it, so sorry!). I had an idea last night for the next one - what about scenes where we find a character particularly attractive? Whether it's the way they're dressed, or are wearing their hair, or whatever - just something about the way they look at that particular time appeals to us. This will of course come down to totally personal opinion but I think it could be fun. What do you guys think?

    Fun fact - I make chili for supper often and I always make sure to make more than what we need, not only so my hubby can have some for his lunchbox the next day but so that I can have chili fries for breakfast the next morning. My FAVORITE.

    2 - I agree with Kohola, a bit too much going on there for me. Individually, it sounds amazing (most of it anyway, I'm not crazy about lamb) but the menu is all over the place. And wow, we're to our final two! Snuck up on me. Vote FOR the one you want to WIN! GG Foods You'd Most Like to Try 11. Lorelai and Rory sample wedding cakes at Weston's.

Lorelai asks Sookie to bring over some food because she's expecting her parents. Sookie misunderstands and thinks Lorelai wants junk food because she's pregnant. "Okay, the mini hot dogs can be bratwurst. The mac and cheese can be Pasta la Sookie. And, presto, the taquitos are blinis." "And the chili fries?" "Are....chili fries." "Right." (I'm Okay, You're Okay)

    24 - I've had risotto before (I think?? It's the tiny pasta, right?) but honestly I have a hard time imagining how you can make it SOOOOO special that everyone freaks out over the food critic calling it fine. Sookie I understand, certainly, but not everyone else. GG Foods You'd Most Like to Try 2. Lorelai makes Luke make her dinner after Liz brags about all the fancy food he likes to cook. "Man, something smells crazy good in here. Oh my G-d, what are you making?" "Lamb and artichoke stew, penne with pesto and potatoes, roasted garlic with rosemary focaccia, tomatoes stuffed with bread crumbs and goat cheese, and ricotta cheesecake with Amaretto cookies to go with your coffee." "You're the perfect man." "Thank you." "I used to think it was Kelsey Grammer, but it's not. It's you." "Finally, I'm one-upping Grammer." (The Party's Over) 11. Lorelai and Rory sample wedding cakes at Weston's. "Um, can I ask you an ethical question?" "Mmm." "Is it right to be sampling wedding cakes when Sookie's making ours for free?"

  14. Scrunch socks! Ahhhh more memories! I was so proud of myself for being able to perfectly layer and scrunch different colors to match my outfits. Booyah.

    Time for Rory's Yale Special to hit the door! I'd totally eat it, btw. Maybe not before heading to a new school (the sausage might do a number on me - especially on a nervous stomach - if ya catch my drift) but yummmm! GG Foods You'd Most Like to Try 2.

"I mean, you know about this risotto. I mean, on my mother’s deathbed --" "You made the risotto and she lived three more years." "She was supposed to be dead. The doctor said she wouldn’t make it through the night." "And she lived because of the risotto. The magic risotto." "And this guy had the nerve to say it was ‘fine’." (The Deer Hunters)
