* [[DatingWhatDaddyHates Dating What Mommy Hates]]: Lorelai tried to be supportive of all of her daughter's relationships, but the only boy which Rory dated and her mother liked was Dean. Jess was unanimously hated by all of the clan members who had and hadn't met him (in the latter case because of the accident), Logan was loved by the grandparents, but Lorelai viewed his 'upper-class SpoiledBrat' status more critically and wasn't blind to his JerkAss behavior, and Rory's second try with Dean was tainted by the fact that he was already married to someone else.



* SatelliteLoveInterest: Despite being married to the best friend of one of the leads, Jackson doesn't really get much to do outside of his relationship with Sookie. This is especially evident in later seasons.

* [[ParentsAsPeople (Grand)parents As People]]: Emily and Richard are full-fleshed characters on their own, not only the parents and grandparents of Lorelai and Rory respectively, and have some plot-lines centered around them, unrelated to the girls.



* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: Lorelai regards her as a master manipulator, and it's not unfounded. She seems especially fond of using [[PolitenessJudo verbal traps]] to get her way.

* ExtremeDoormat: Any time his parents or Lorelai's parents tell him to do something, he usually does it without much protest. He usually means well for Lorelai and Rory, but he doesn't seem to be able to stand up to their parents. Plus, when Sherry tells him she's pregnant, he's visibly torn between staying for Rory or returning to Sherry before caving in and leaving again.



** He actually wanted to end his relationship with Sherrie, but returned to her when he found out Sherrie is pregnant; they got married and had Gigi.

* RealMenCook: though it's clear Lorelei and Rory would accept just about anything that was edible, Luke's abilities shine in a season-five episode when Sookie takes ill and he has to take over for Sookie at the Dragonfly Inn. Despite his lack of training compared to hers, some of the patrons prefer his food to Sookie's.

* OddFriendship: with Lorelei. The two see eye-to-eye on almost nothing, but Lorelei respects the solidarity of motherhood and will go behind Rory's back when Rory conspires with Lane to do something Mrs. Kim disapproves of. This has the strange effect of making Mrs. Kim the sole person alive who Lorelei will ever cross Rory for.

* SlutShaming: Paris inflicts it on ''herself'', apparently seeing a link between having sex with Jamie and [[spoiler:not getting into Harvard]]. She does it during her Chilton Bicentennial speech, which is aired live by Creator/CSPAN (a very rare instance of that network lending its brand to a fictional series). And then outs Rory as a virgin, and 'deduces' (correctly) that therefore [[spoiler:she will get accepted into Harvard]]. Did we mention it was on C-SPAN?

* RichesToRags: After her parents leave the country to avoid charges for tax evasion. She manages remarkably well, and adjusts fairly quickly to no longer having money, all things considered.

Added DiffLines:
