%%* TheFool



** Mrs Kim has a masterful understanding of Shakespeare (which she reads to 'good off'), to the point where she quotes a obscure but highly appropriate line of Herny VI ("Let never day nor night unhallowed pass, but still remember what the Lord hath done.) in response to Dave acknowledging his crush on Lane (The quote is the King speaking to a blind man who has regained his power of sight, and it's in essence Mrs Kim saying something between ''Well duh'' and ''Finally, you're seeing her as you should''. It's also a touch of FrdigeBrillance as Mrs Kim allowed Lane to attend a RomeandJuliet play with Lorelai and Rory all the way back in the first season because she thought it was a cautinary tale of young pepole in love who don't listen to their parents...which is one of the most highly held scholary viewpoints on the play.

** Also the reason behind her summer-long fight with [[spoiler: Lorelei]] in Season 6, and their falling out right before Rory and Emily's trip to Europe in Season 5. In both of these cases, Rory's reason for leaving is wanting to avoid Lorelei's opinions on Rory's life choices (especially in her romantic life).

** The revival shows Rory being very loving towards her family and friends [[spoiler: but somewhat condescending towards others, including the people who could help further her journalism career.]]



* {{Hypocrite}}: Has her moments. For example, she's absolutely horrified when she learns that Dean's dropping out of college, and tries to persuade him that no reason is good enough for such an act. Any of those reflections come back to her when she does exactly the same a season later?

** In the revival, Rory also tells the CEO of ''Sandee Says'' that her actions are unprofessional, while Rory was the one who showed up unprepared, without any ideas or pieces of writing to show her; she doesn't even appear to have a resume or portfolio with her.

* GlorifiedSpermDonor: He was rarely in Rory's life, largely due to Lorelai running away and breaking off contact, and because his parents directed his life to keep contact to a minimum. [[spoiler:When Rory goes to see him in "Fall", she asks him about why he didn't to convince Lorelai to raise her together. He confessed that when he first saw how she held baby Rory, he knew there was no way he could get in between them. He knew that because Lorelai was so headstrong about her choices and because they were so young, he wouldn't be able to change her mind anyway and let her raise Rory alone.]]

* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: He's known Lorelai since they were kids and genuinely does love her. He even proposed to her when she got pregnant, and they did get married in Season 7, but her heart ultimately lies with Luke. [[spoiler:When Rory goes to notify him about Lorelai's wedding, he tells her to send Lorelai his best wishes and that he's learned his lesson about letting her go.]]
* UnwittingPawn: A lot of his actions towards Lorelai are largely triggered by suggestions from Emily, in an albeit misguided attempt to do right by Lorelai. For her part, Lorelai doesn't seem to begrudge Christopher's efforts, but she knows that he rarely did things of his own volition and mostly because the parents tell him to.

** For Rory herself. Both of them were raised by young mothers without their fathers present. But while Lorelai raised Rory with a fierce devotion in the stable environment of Stars Hollow, Liz was a wildly unstable alcoholic and drug user who rarely paid attention to her son while barely raising him in the more chaotic New York City, forcing him to raise himself. When they first met, Rory was on a bright path to Yale while Jess was insecure and self-destructive about his path in life. [[spoiler:In the revival, Jess has a stable life in Philadelphia working in publishing while Rory is floundering in her career and unsure about her life. As one review put it, it's telling that while Jess continues to carry a book with him and is reading in his final scenes, ''Rory'' hasn't been seen with a book the entire time, aside from glancing at the ''Stars Hollow Gazette'' and writing the first three chapters of her manuscript.]]
* GeniusBookClub: A trait shared with Rory. He has read and can be found reading many famous authors, including Tom Wolfe, Kurt Vonnegut, and Jack Kerouac. He debates the merits of Bukowski with Paris and teases Rory for her disdain of Hemingway. He grabs Rory's attention in an EstablishingCharacterMoment by writing notes in the margins of her copy of Allen Ginsberg's "Howl," which he tells her he's read "about 40 times."
