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”= : )
