Added DiffLines:

* ThePerfectionist: She has ridiculously high standards, a fact that bites her on the ass when she takes over editorship of the Yale Daily Editor. Her need to micromanage everyone and force every article to live up to her standard of quality drives most of the staff to quit.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Adorkable}}: Sometimes, when she's excited. A good example would be her celebration of clocking in on her first day of actual work and her noting that the time clock "made the punchy sound" when she punched her card.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Determinator}}: And she enforces it on members of her family too. She may think Lane's taste in music is sinful, but she'll be damned if she's going to let her daughter give up on her dream:
-->'''Mrs. Kim:''' Kims do not give up!

Added DiffLines:

* CantTakeCriticism: In Season 5, she responds poorly to Mitchum Huntzberger telling her she doesn't have what it takes to be a journalist. Her HeroicBSOD is understandable, given that this is coming from a major figure in her desired profession, but stealing a yacht was a decidedly poor way of handling the situation.

Added DiffLines:

* BigEater: Not typically, but in college, she fasted for Ramadan as part of an assignment for the Yale newspaper and as soon as it was over, she ordered a staggering amount of takeout and freaked out when her cheesy bread didn't arrive with the rest of her food.

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Her sleeping with Dean despite his being married is pretty much glossed over in Season 5. She gets a chewing out by Lorelai for it (which admittedly is a rarity) and she does show some initial signs of feeling guilty, but Lorelai eventually forgives her and whatever guilt she may feel isn't strong enough to prevent her from continuing to see him (though he did leave his wife as a result).

* VitriolicBestBuds: Paris started out as Rory's academic rival but slowly grew to be her close friend and confidant when Rory couldn't confide in her mother or Lane. They still bicker a lot, though.

* VitriolicBestBuds: Paris started out as Rory's academic rival but slowly grew to be her close friend and confidant when Rory couldn't confide in her mother or Lane. They still bicker a lot, though. Even in early seasons, Paris often ran to Rory for help when she had a problem.



* VitriolicBestBuds: Despite trading snark with each other, Rory and Paris have become close friends and will stick up for each other. Paris, in a way, becomes Rory's closest confidante during the periods of time when Rory's relationships with her family became strained.

Added DiffLines:

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: One of the hinderances to her bid for Student Body President at Chilton is that Rory is one of the few students who can actually stand her. She gets around this by recruiting Rory as her running mate.

* TeensAreShort: Milo Ventimiglia is actually 5'10", which is just about normal height for guys. Part of the trick to convince the audience that Jess was 17 was to use camera angles to make him look shorter as well as dressing him in over-sized clothing. Playing most of his scenes against the 6'3" Luke and 6'4" Dean helped as well, with the 6-inch difference making his normal build look scrappier by comparision.
