I don’t watch the DVDs of the show everyday but I tend to make it through all of the seasons about once a year, whatever that averages out to. I just recently realized the significance of this conversation in season seven episode two. Rory is bragging about how she’s a grown up and Lorelai replies that grown ups call themselves adults.
I always refer to people who are even a year or two older than me as “grown ups”. I do not consider myself to be in this category. So what do you say grown-ups or adults or peer group?
