Lorelai Victoria Gilmore is a fictional character in the comedy-drama television series Gilmore Lorelai is introduced as a young single mother of a teenage daughter, Rory. she discovered she was pregnant with Christopher's baby at the age of . In the fifth season, Lorelai started a relationship with Luke Danes;. Gilmore Girls has a huge ensemble cast, with popular series regulars Emily and “I think everybody who has been dating for more than a couple of years . By the end of the series, she manages to find someone her own age in the form of. Sixteen years later, Stars Hollow looks very different. I'm also closer to Lorelai's age than Rory's in those early days. of the real world that she ruins relationships by being insensitive, and handicaps her own progress.
Really, the only good thing he did was contribute in a small way to Luke and Lorelai getting together. Paris and Doyle Paris and Doyle might not have been the best couple to be around, but they were good for each other. They were the perfect college couple, ready to run the world together. Unfortunately, their relationship didn't last. By A Year in the Life, they had gotten divorced.
They were just as dynamic and entertaining as ever when they fought, even in the middle of a divorce. There did seem to be hope left for the two of them. Fans could only hope maybe they would work things out. Whether they would or not, they remained two characters whose scenes together were so enjoyable to watch.
Rory and Paul Remember Paul? Anyone who even has an inkling of who Paul was to Rory is already doing better than she did. Paul was Rory's boyfriend in A Year in the Life, not that she ever remembered he existed.
The worst part was they dated for two years. She was cheating on him at the time with Logan who was cheating on his fiancee. She kept forgetting about Paul, even when he was around. He showed up for dinner at the house, she forgot he was coming. Paul ended up breaking things off via a text. Usually, that would be one of the worst ways to end a relationship. However, after Rory's lack of concern about him and their relationship, she was the bad guy, not him.
Lane and Dave It's really too bad that Lane and Dave couldn't work things out and last. But they couldn't have done a long-distance relationship forever. He and Lane shared a love for music. They met when Lane posted a flyer as a drummer looking for a band. When faced with Mrs. Kim, he tackled the issue head on. He pretended to be a Christian guitarist to win her over. Plus, who could forget "This bible belongs to God but is being borrowed by Dave Rygalski"?
He was not only good for Lane, but he was also good for Mrs. He was the perfect way to get Lane's mother used to her being with someone who wasn't Korean. Dean and Lindsay Why Dean ever got married was a headscratcher. He knew he still had feelings for Rory before his wedding. He acted on those feelings after he and Lindsay got married. When he cheated on her, he tried to make her the bad guy.
She deserved so much better. It was impossible not to be on her side once the truth came out. Imagine if Gilmore Girls hadn't returned to Dean and Rory.
He was still hung up on his ex when they got together. However, at the very least, maybe they would have stood a chance.
Instead, Dean and Lindsay could never have lasted and could only hurt the show. Rory was always the third person in their marriage. Sookie and Jackson While fans were waiting to see which of her love interests Rory would pick and when Luke and Lorelai would get together, they watched Sookie and Jackson fall in love. As Lorelai's best friend, Sookie could have been a supporting character, mostly in the background, with a background relationship. Instead, she was her own person, with a relationship as entertaining to watch develop as any other.
Sookie and Jackson were entertaining, amusing, and heartfelt. Fans watched them banter over produce, get married and have kids — and become one of the most stable couples on the show. They both had their high-strung moments, but they were always there for each other, even if meant Jackson making sure his wife was on bedrest. Lorelai and Christopher Christopher was always going to be part of Lorelai's life.
He was Rory's father. He was Lorelai's ex. He might not have been that reliable in the early seasons, but sticking around wasn't the problem.
The problem came when he became part of a love triangle. He tried to get Lorelai back — while she was with Luke. Then came the real headscratcher when Lorelai and Christopher did get back together and married.
Christopher could never truly fit in with the Stars Hollow crowd. He couldn't fit in with the Gilmore Girls, either, at least for an extended period of time. He was at his best — and the series used him best — when he briefly appeared then left.
Featured Today 13 Saved: Kirk and Lulu In the beginning, Kirk was just that town weirdo with strange business endeavors and who annoyed Luke. Then he got a girlfriend, Lulu, who was just as strange as he was. Furthermore, she could handle his odd qualities and his night terrors.
Their relationship was never a main plot point, which was why it worked. There were simply moments here and there that reminded viewers they were together—and Kirk was better for it.
The Stars Hollow residents all fit into their boxes, and a relationship and Lulu added to Kirk's. He still fit in his box, still was the same Kirk. However, there was another layer, another way for him to add more humor to his scenes. Luke and Nicole Luke and Nicole's relationship wasn't that bad when they dated in season 3.
They dated after meeting through Taylor. That was fine, even though everyone knew it wouldn't last. After all, Luke and Lorelai were obviously going to get together at some point. However, then Luke and Nicole went on a cruise and got married.
That was one of the biggest mistakes of the series. Fortunately, they seemed to realize that and planned to get a divorce. Then for some reason, they thought they should try to make things work and bought a townhouse together. That only lasted until Luke found out Nicole was cheating on him. It's hard to root for a couple on a television show when one party cheats on the other. Babette and Morey Babette and Morey were the most stable, solid couple of the series. They were never the source of any drama or conflict because they were, for the most part, just the neighbors.
But they were so much more. They were the ones with the most entertaining stories at dinners and events. Babette loved to talk, while Morey was her tall, silent partner at her side. Babette could be loud and over the top, and Morey balanced her out as a calm and quiet presence.
She was exuberant, while he was more serious. They were the perfect example of opposites attracting. Other relationships could end, but if ever there was a Gilmore Girls couple everyone wanted to see stay together, it was Babette and Morey.
Rory and Dean Dean was Rory's first love, and as a first love, he wasn't that bad. Their relationship wasn't a problem when they were together in high school.
Sure, it wasn't one that could have lasted in the long run. Maybe their relationship wouldn't have hurt the series. The problem came when they got back together — during and after his marriage. Their affair and then brief rekindling turned them both into awful characters. Their affair strained Rory's relationship with her mother. The entire town knew. Yet, Rory thought she had some hold on him because he was her first love.
Lorelai might not have always gotten along with her parents — and her parents might not have always been right — but they were a steady couple. At least, they were until their brief separation. One of the best moments of the series was Emily asking Richard to come home. When Christopher's father dies, Lorelai and Rory go at his house to support him.
However, Lorelai does not mention her visit to Luke. Emily tells Christopher that the relationship between Lorelai and Luke is getting serious and that he should do something if he wants to end up with Lorelai.
At Richard and Emily's wedding renewal ceremony, Lorelai finally admits to Luke her visit to Christopher when she notices his presence. Christopher tells Luke that his relationship with Lorelai won't last because he is destined to be with Lorelai. This leads to Luke breaking up with Lorelai but they later reunite. Lorelai, however, remains furious at Emily for some time and eventually forgives her. Lorelai is worried about Rory's relationship with Logan Huntzberger Matt Czuchry and his family's influence on her.
At the conclusion of the season, they steal a yacht and end up at the police station. Rory decides to take a year off from Yale which upsets Lorelai and when her parents, who initially agreed to help, change their mind and permit Rory to move in with them, prompts Lorelai to propose to Luke. In the sixth season, Lorelai and Rory do not talk for months while Luke agrees to marry Lorelai and they renovate her house. When Luke reveals he cannot trust Lorelai after she has received a message from Christopher, the two fight.

Lorelai and Rory finally reconcile and she decides to return to Yale. Luke learns he has a daughter but does not tell Lorelai. Lorelai later finds out about Luke's daughter and they decide to postpone the wedding. When Christopher receives an inheritance, he starts to pay for Yale and the Friday night dinners aren't so mandatory anymore.
After posing an ultimatum to Luke which leads to their break-up, Lorelai finds comfort in Christopher and they start dating again. In the final season of the original series, Lorelai and Christopher jet off to Paris, where they impulsively get married. When Lorelai returns home and informs Rory and the rest of Stars Hollow, including Luke that she and Christopher are married she gets mixed reactions.
Rory is upset at first, but comes around since she all she really wants is her mom and for that matter her dad to be happy. Throughout the season, Christopher and Lorelai face some significant issues, the biggest one is when Lorelai needs to write a character reference for Luke so he can partial custody of his daughter, April. Christopher finds a draft of the letter and when reading it, he realizes that Lorelai still loves Luke.
Lorelai tries to deny it, but the both soon realize that they're better off as friends.

The role required someone who could act, who could make you cry, who could break your heart, who was funny and gorgeous and tough and sexy and vulnerable.
We looked and looked and couldn't find that actress. Just about the time I was saying, 'Let's just find somebody who's pretty and put her in the corner,' in walks Lauren. She gave us everything we wanted - a lovely little gift combo. You've got to be funny, you've got to talk really fast, you've got to be able to act, you've got to be sexy, but not scary sexy.
You've got to be strong, but not like 'I hate men. And to find it and be able to feel like you broke somebody fresh, even though everybody in town knew Lauren, like everybody here was like, 'When is Lauren going to get something great. Also, the character talks fast and uses words to keep her "loneliness at bay" which, while opinion, seems to be a relatively insightful view of her.
Lorelai feels that to "swoon, even once," would make her lose her verbal power and her "reason for being. First of all, that she's bright enough to put that many words together that quickly It was her Wonder Woman cuffs.
She's chronically rude to people in the service industry, and she is always in the market for special treatment. She is not a good friend to Sookie, even though she thinks she is; she kinda, sorta takes advantage of Sookie's pleaser tendencies and frequently ignores, minimizes, or dismisses Sookie's ideas and problems. Her self-absorption erodes any opportunity for self-awareness. She likes to refer to her "emotional baggage," but she assiduously avoids doing anything about it.
Lorelai knows how to push Emily and Richard's buttons, and she never hesitates to do so. We had a good four years, and in those four years, we saw Luke go through relationships, and we saw Lorelai go through three relationships. I felt like it was time. A coffee addict, she spends a lot of time in Luke's diner and chatting with the locals of Stars Hollow. She makes many pop culture references, many from the 80s. Lorelai speaks very fast, especially when upset.
A smart businesswoman, she forms strong relationships with her employees making her business run smoothly. Her best friend is Sookie St.
