“Knit People Knit” Recap

Here are the jottings I made on a notepad while watching this episode of “Gilmore Girls”, some of which I need help understanding. Consider it a game.

1.Must get my parents an answering machine. Lorelai told Emily & Richard that she was married on their answering machine, of course they took that really well. They also gave her Wolf Girl for a wedding present. It’s no house, like they had planned for Luke & Lorelai are they also closet L&L fans?

2. Rory with Paris. Rory moved back in Paris, I’m very happy about that.

3. Glad Anna mother’s ailing. She & April are moving to New Mexico, also very happy about that. Also I might be a horrible person

4. Worst crying scene. In reference to April’s fake crying or convulsion. whatever it was the kid needs help.

5.  Jackson talking to. Jackson gave Christopher a stern talking to when Lorelai said they had to go on a “Man Date” because if you’re in with Jackson you’re in with the town. This was my favorite aspect of this episode. It is probably the only episode we will have with just Christopher & Lorelai trying to make things work until Luke comes back & screws everything up. The town like everyone else is secretly a Luke & Lorelai fan.

6. Free needles. The town held a knitting marathon to save the bridge. (They already saved the bridge but they made it out of nice wood so it rotted so now they have to save it again). So everyone gathered in the town square for a knit-a-thon. Christopher tried to be helpful & donated the full amount a few hours in. The marathon ended early & I hated Chris a little more. However, Kirk was walking around with a suitcase full of knitting needles yelling about free needle, & Lorelai said, something to the effect that Stars Hallow was progressive. One of my favorite “Gilmore Girls” jokes of all time. Also, Lorelai was wearing this skull & bones t-shirt that said “knit or die” & the cross bones were made out of skull & bones. (Don’t ask for a picture, I’ve already looked high & low).

7. Kapow.  I always thought that Martie would come back in a flash of brilliance, instead of him putting up with being referred to only as “boyfriend”.  I thought he would grab Rory & there would be a Kapow as he kissed her & said “Logan be damned”.  Instead it’s all this subtle conversation & if he wasn’t so pretty I’d be bored.  Kapow we need Kapow.

The episode ended with Luke finally telling Anna that he is April’s father too & he has rights.  (It’s about time).  I felt that the characters were finally being true to themselves.  Even Martie got in a little Kapow when he told Rory she was beautiful.  So it was a nice reprise until the suckiness starts next week.  Suckiness is too a word, don’t give me that Microsoft Word, you’re just upset because you can’t make up your own words. Oh & if anyone know who Tipp O’Neil is, or anything close to that spelling let me know, because Lorelai wanted to marry him when she was little.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)

    I am so happy they had a knitathon! Even though you speak of suckiness, I am more excited to see the dvd’s of this season everytime I visit.

    And was that a joke about the wedding gift? Did they really give them that?

    Canada loves you too. Next awards, you’re totally getting nominated for best “activites” blog because there aint no better activity than watching the GG and reading all the books in Rory’s book club! (Even if you cheat a little)

    I saw this one! I saw this one! Unfortunately, it made me very, very sad. Christopher. Ugh. Luke. Ugh. April (fire that actress immediately). Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.

    The primary highlight was Paris and her man gettin’ down at the inexplicable 2002 party. That made my night 🙂

  3. Virginia

    The saving grace of this episode was Paris & Doyle–hopefully we’ll see much more of them now that Rory has moved in with them.

    Loved the G-parents in this episode…Emily hitting Play on answering machine reminded me of the time she read from Lorelai’s deposition…hilarious!

    Hate April. Hate Anna (but at least her hair seemed to be fastened to her head this week). Hit the road already!

  4. Girl Friday

    I agree that this episode was more on track for all parties involved. I couldn’t even resist talking about it when I finally posted after a month of inactivity on my own blog. 🙂 I want that shirt that Lorelai was wearing. Let’s make one!

    Okay I am gonna respond to your thoughts on this episode

    [quote=2. Rory with Paris. Rory moved back in Paris, I’m very happy about that.] No matter how the years go on, I will always love Paris. She just helps the sucky new episodes become somewhat good.

    [quote=3. Glad Anna Mother’s ailing. She & April are moving to New Mexico, also very happy about that.] Yay! April is going away.

    [quote=4. Worst crying Scene. In reference to April’s fake crying, convulsion, whatever, the kid needs help.] OMG that was terrible. I can really easily make myself cry and that kid cannot at all. It was so fake and stupid that it almost made me laugh.

    [quote=5. Jackson talking to. Jackson gave Christopher a stern talking to when Lorelai said they had to go on a “Man Date” because if you’re in with Jackson you’re in with the town.

    GO JACKSON! GO TOWNS PEOPLE OF STARS HOLLOW!

Argh that made me mad.

    I liked that Liz had her baby.
    Anywho this episode had its ups and downs. But I hate the new writers.
