Gilmore Girls: We've Got Magic to Do

Rory does a fabulous job organizing a big DAR bash for Emily. However, at the party, Richard confronts Logan's father, Mitchum Huntzberger, about his opinion of Rory's journalistic talents, while Emily has an even uglier confrontation with Logan's mother, Shria, over the romance between Rory and Logan. Meanwhile, after a small kitchen fire at the Dragonfly Inn, Lorelai needs Richard's help settling the insurance claim and uses the time spent with her father to needle him about the fact that he has been unable to get Rory to return to Yale. Though he's annoyed with Lorelai, Richard has to admit that Rory is not where she should be.

Episode Notes
Rating: 4.0/6

Episode Quotes
Richard: Emily, please. It's Rory. What she tackles, she conquers. This girl could name the state capitals at 3, recite the periodic table at 4, discuss Schopenhauer's influence on Nietzsche when she was 10. She's read every book by every author with a russian surname and had a 4.2 grade-point average at one of the toughest schools on the east coast. If she's excluding salmon puffs, she has a good reason to exclude salmon puffs. And I, for one, have complete confidence in her ability to tackle this job, and so should you.

Sookie: This policy, wasn't it set up by your--
Lorelai: Yes.
Sookie: So if we're getting the runaround, doesn't that mean you have to--
Lorelai: Yes.
Sookie: Sorry.

Sookie: What's 'pubic speaking'?
Lorelai: I'm hoping it's a misprint.

Luke: You didn't have to buy me a new wallet. My old wallet was fine.
Lorelai: Your old wallet has velcro.
Luke: It works.
Lorelai: It's disgusting.

Episode Goofs
