*Entirely possible after [[spoiler: Rory decides to write a book based on her relationship with Lorelai and names it "Gilmore Girls".]] Especially [[spoiler:considering how much MORE jerk-like Rory seems to be in the revival. The revival was the "real" Rory and the original run was the Rory-written version of herself.]]

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The show is [[spoiler: a TV version of Rory's book.]]]]
This would explain some of the more exaggerated craziness that occurs in Stars Hollow as [[spoiler: Rory's memories of her childhood and her wacky neighbors.]] It would also explain the ProtagonistCenteredMorality surrounding Rory: [[spoiler: as it's her book, she's an UnreliableNarrator. This is why, when she helps Dean cheat, she barely gets called out on it; why no one calls her out on her affair with Logan; and why the neighbors all blamed Dean when he and Rory broke up. Rory glosses over her own faults in her book and, thus, is portrayed as something of a MarySue in the show despite her obvious human mistakes.]]

* That theory doesn't disturb "some fans", it disturbs every sane person.




to:

** Some fans theorize that it ''could be'' [[spoiler:Jess, since he is present during summer and fall, and it's not impossible he and Rory hooked up. However given pure statistics, Rory's conversation with Christopher which implies that she plans to raise the child alone and the baby daddy is unfit to be her partner, and Jess being the only one from the love interests who ''didn't'' get the ShipSinking treatment in the revival, Logan and even Paul are much more probable options.]]

Luke is the warden, which explains his {{Only Sane Man}} status. Just before the show started, it was discovered that Rory was able to somewhat-function in a regular school environment, so she was allowed to leave the town to go to Chilton. Lorelei also has a deal that allows her to leave once a week for Friday night dinner with her parents.

* That actually seems consistent with their personalities - excitable but easily distracted. They also seem to have a lot of leftover take-out boxes at home, so perhaps that is where the extra food goes. However, in that same instance it's shown that they often mix-up the old/new leftovers, and/or just throw it away because they've gone bad. Wouldn't this practice be fiscally irresponsible? (And you'd think Lorelei would have better habits after she'd run away with Rory and had nothing.)
* This answers the question of [[ImprobableFoodBudget how a single mother affords to eat takeout food every night of the week.]] Even with Christopher helping out, Rory doesn't have a job and Lorelei is only the owner of a small B&B. Yet she has a rather nice house to pay the mortgage on and could only afford to enroll Rory in private school and college with her rich parents' help. Solution: they order a ton of Chinese food and live off it for the rest of the week because they [[ForgetsToEat forget to eat]].

[[WMG: Lorelei and Rory are BigBeautifulWomen, they just look thin on TV]]
Lorelei and Rory are both very much BigEaters. They regularly order huge amounts of food, and not diet food either. The fact that they don't appear to be putting on weight, that is just the illusion that the standard Hollywood casting has produced, by having them played by slim actresses who ''don't'' actually stuff themselves on junk food. In universe, Lorelei and Rory are both extremely big women, if not at first then certainly later, after gorging throughout the course of the show. They simply don't bring it up because they don't usually feel self-conscious about it, and there's obviously no reason to remind the people around them, who can see for themselves how fat they are. The rest of the characters don't mention because, unless you're trying to insult them, why bring up their weight? And if you ''are'' trying to insult them, then pick something that they actually care about, as opposed to their steadily increasing weight, which they are clearly fine with.

[[WMG: [[spoiler:Rory's baby daddy]]]]
Considering the huge WhamLine that was the final four words, most agree that:[[spoiler:Logan's the father, considering their affair is threaded along Rory's story in the revival.]] However, [[http://www.vulture.com/2016/11/gilmore-girls-ending-theories.html there's other ideas]] that [[spoiler:Rory's a surrogate for Paris's fertility clinic since that's a topic broached by Lorelai to Luke]], [[spoiler:Rory's one night stand who was dressed as a Wookiee]], [[spoiler:and Paul, her often forgotten boyfriend that she cheats on with Logan.]]

Get {{Squick}}ed out all you want but I know it, You Know It, hell even ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' knows it and the 2 titular GilmoreGirls are really just too friendly and comfortable with each other for it to be just platonic "familial closeness". I'm sorry if this theory disturbs some fans but somebody had to say it.

* I agree. And Rory loves troping as well. Not only does she contribute to her favourite films' and TV shows' pages, but she also takes care of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's page or one of that cute Russian poet [[AlexanderPushkin Pushkin]]. She likes compiling tropes for Milton's ''Literature/ParadiseLost'' and she toys with the idea of starting a work's page for Creator/MarcelProust's ''A la recherche du temps perdu''.

* Apparently their interactions and conversational style are based on the Palladinos themselves, which is why Lorelai and Rory act like a married couple most of the time. My own theory has always been that it's more of a mutual romantic love/attraction they both feel but never speak of or act on for obvious reasons, so they resign themselves to being PlatonicLifePartners. The notion of it being a consummated relationship is a stretch, though that won't stop many fans from fantasizing about it, or reading femslash fics.
