I was initially disturbed by the first pancake scene in the episode “Will you be my Lorelai Gilmore?” Rory shared this advice about how the first pancake is always worthless because it gets burnt.
I always hated that Rory learned how to cook, it was just so against her character. The other morning I was making pancakes because if Rory can learn how to cook, so can I. The first pancake didn’t turn out well. It looked like scrambled eggs but with a pancake. I thought, cooking sucks, I want to eat a donut. Then I decided to try one more pancake & the second one came out perfect. I guess the first pancake phenomenon is alive & well.
