The way we were

One of my favorite “Gilmore Girls” episodes is from Season 5 believe it or not.  I love the episode “Say Anything”, right after Emily makes that mess at her vow renewal & Luke & Lorelai break up.  Lorelai watches “The Way We Were” & then calls up Luke & says something to the effect of I just need you to be my best friend.  I watch this episode every time I break up with someone.  I find myself wanting to break up with people just so I can watch this episode again.

So it made sense that I would watch “The Way We Were”.  There were some good moments to it, but I just didn’t like it.  It’s like spinach, it’s good for you but you aren’t excited to see it. This is a spoiler so stop reading here if you don’t want to know.  When they are standing in the street at the end & Babs runs across the street I find myself thinking ‘The only way this movie could be saved is if one of them gets hit by a car right now”.  No one got hit by a car, so I wasn’t a big fan.  I just found the movie to be a downer.  So I wasn’t a fan of “The Way We Were”, but I still like the episode of “Gilmore Girls” that quoted it.  That didn’t make a lot of sense, I better simplify.  “The Way We Were”= 🙁      Gilmore Girls talking about “The Way We Were”= : )

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...)

    This is also a favorite episode of mine… Although I wouldn’t break up with someone just so that I could watch it. But this episode always makes me cry. And it demonstrates how strongly Lorelai loves Luke, and how timeless is Luke’s love for Lorelai. I mean, how many guys do you know who would rush over to their ex-girlfriend’s side like that? Just like he came to the hospital when Richard had his operation. Luke does that for his family and for Lorelai and Rory. I think that says something about the girls’ relationship with Luke.

    BTW, like many movies mentioned on my favorite show, The Way We Were is in my Netflix queue, but I haven’t gotten to it yet.

    That is also one of my fav episodes, but I actually liked the movie I cried for 30 minutes after it was over

    One of these days I’m actually going to sit down and watch these old movies that people always talk about. Never seen Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, It’s a Wonderful Life…I could go on! 🙂 I’m keeping track of your list though…I’ll catch up eventually!

    The Way We Were – that movie has always killed me. For some reason – even as a young teen, it really hit home. And at that point, I hadn’t even REALLY experienced true heart ache. But that movie always makes me ache. It’s a bit too real for me. But love the movie.

    I watched this movie with my mom a long timg ago in an effort to “bond.” Now that she is an official Gilmore Girls junkie, I wish we could try that whole “bonding” thing again…I think I’d enjoy it much more! Incidentally, my friend dated a guy named Hubbell…
