One of Lorelai's main contentions with her parents is that she would rather make her own money in life rather than relying on the Gilmore name and money. Rory appears to waver between the two perspectives.
** The Huntzbergers are even more old money than the Gilmores and are portrayed are far above the Gilmores' station.
