Like Mother, Like Daughter is one of the more lighthearted episodes of this show. We see the younger Gilmore Girl Rory getting in trouble at school. Her grades are fine but the school doesn’t feel like she’s socializing properly. Sure, they only see that she sits alone at lunch. She feels slighted because she isn’t alone; she just hasn’t made friends there yet and who would with people like Paris and Tristan around?
To remedy this she sits down at a table and ends up joining a secret sorority which she didn’t even know existed. Paris also wants to be a member and Rory tries to get her in. When Lorelai complains about the forced socialization she is chided for not being more active in school activities and ends up dragging Emily to be a model in a fashion show that she organizes. The two walk in a fashion show together and even end up having some fun in the process.
