I could get it if she didn’t want him in their lives, but from what I heard he called Rory & showed up to E & R’s at holidays. It seems that Richard esp would have pressed him on it. I don’t see how they could have welcomed him into their house otherwise. Chris was a lazy ass but his family had money & Rory was entitled to it. I think the answer is she didn't ask because she knew it wouldn't happen. Emily and Richard wouldn't help her seek it for fear of risking their standing in society and they were supporting her and Rory financially the first year. Lorelai also knew the Haydens would fight her as their reaction to the pregnancy was to blame her entirely. Chris himself probably had a trust fund but that wouldn't kick in until his twenties so his access to funds was limited until then. By the time Chris would have access to his trust fund Lorelai was working at the Inn and able to take care of herself and Rory (this is shortly before they bought the Crap Shack) so it may not have occurred to her to even ask. By the time Rory actually needed major funds for Chilton Lorelai was aware that Chris' claims of business success may not be true so she wouldn't have asked him for help there anyway. You're right about Rory being entitled to the Hayden money but Lorelai was smart enough to know they'd fight her on it. 5 hours ago, MrsJumbo3 said: why does Rory get a goodbye party, kinda confused because for awhile she was the town pariah for sleeping with the married Dean. Other than Lindsay's mom yelling at her for a minute by the gazebo Rory didn't suffer any Stars Hollow repercussions for sleeping with Dean. It's possible the news didn't spread the way gossip usually did as Miss Patty and Babette adored Rory and may have chosen to keep quiet. The goodbye party was really about the show ending but I think Richard is right and a big part of the motivation was due to the town's love for Lorelai. By this point Rory wasn't in the town as much but Lorelai still was so the party was the town's way of saying a formal goodbye to Rory but also showing Lorelai they still had her back. 5 1 1 Link to comment
