* The reason Mitchum didn't think she "got it" could also be that she was too much of a people pleaser.

to:

* Emily really knew her maids quite well. She could describe the tiniest habits in detail.




to:

* When Mitchum tore Rory down in the season five finale, he was trying to kill her ambition and make her the sort of woman that his wife said she wanted Logan to marry during the dinner.

Added DiffLines:

** Logan's probably paying for Rory's travel to London. There's no way she could afford it if she can't even afford to buy underwear for a year.

to:

* When Lorelai is telling Emily about her 13th birthday and Richard taking her to the movies, she says it was "the best birthday [she] ever had" which is a sad commentary on her life pre-Rorry, though does that mean that she didn't have a good birthday, say when Rory had that giant pizza made for her and none of her birthdays after Rory were good?

to:

* The last final words as seen in the revival are [[spoiler:about Rory being pregnant]]. These are the words that Amy Sherman-Palladino really intended to end the show and if Amy really ended it on season 7, [[spoiler:Rory would be pregnant at 22 just as she graduated from Yale. It's not as worse as Lorelai getting pregnant at 16 but being pregnant just after graduating from college is just sad and terrible considering that Rory is getting ready to build her career and get a job only that it would stop because of that. Also, she's unprepared for being a mother at a very young age. Never mind on who the father is (it would still be Logan who is the next Christopher), how can Rory support her child if she doesn't have a stable job and income? Yeah, she might get support from her mom and grandparents. But she's an adult where she needs to be self-sufficient and responsible and at her age, she had to make her place in society. The final words in the revival makes sense since at 32, Rory is prepared for it despite her failing journalism career, she still has some money left whatever work she had done in the TimeSkip (how else can she travel from America to London) and working at the town's newspaper and writing a book would make amends]].

* After Rory loses her virginity to Dean, she assures her mother that they were "very safe", implying that they used condoms. But their encounter happened on the spur of the moment, ostensibly totally unexpected. Did she have condoms in her room? She was visiting from college and wasn't dating anyone, why would she have stocked up for the summer? The alternate explanation is that Dean had one on him, but given that Dean was married and visiting an old girlfriend, the most logical explanation is that he knew (or at least hoped for) what was going to happen. If that's the case, it wasn't a spontaneous moment of passion, he went there deliberately to cheat on his wife.

** It's possible that she was just on birth control, and figured he would have told her if he had contracted an STD. But I also wouldn't be surprised if the implication was supposed to be that he was prepared and ready.

** She probably was extra sad about Logan because she at that point [[spoiler:knew she was pregnant]].

** Factor in his HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood and probably crappy experience with strange guys trying make nice with him so they could get close to Liz, Jess has a lot of reason to be suspicious of this cheerful woman he doesn't know singing the praises of an uncle he barely knows.

to:

* Rory spent her entire childhood pursuing the goal of getting into Harvard, and most of her college years with the goal of graduating Yale, but after that she had a rather vague "be like Christiane Ammanpour, travel and write and stuff" sort of "goal". This could easily be why she hasn't made anything of her life and career yet.
