* AesopAmnesia: In the original show, Rory spent many episodes of season 4 cheating with Dean and eventually admitting how much she had screwed up and how ashamed she felt for it. In the revival, it seems to have had no lasting effect [[spoiler:as she is now cheating on her boyfriend with Logan (who ''himself'' is engaged)]] and apparently doesn't give a flying fuck this time.



* AllForNothing: In comparison to the original show, the many season 4 episodes spent on Rory cheating with Dean and eventually admitting how much she had screwed up and how ashamed she felt for it seems to have had no lasting effect [[spoiler:as she is now cheating on her boyfriend with Logan (who ''himself'' is engaged)]] and apparently doesn't give a flying fuck this time.

The unabomber also gets at few mentions. Rory basically speaks in literary references, and Lorelai in movie references, though they sometimes switch.
