Gilmore Girls - S02 E07

Drama . Comedy

Headmaster Charleston decrees that both Gilmore girls need to improve their socialization skills at Chilton if they want him to write a glowing recommendation for Rory's Harvard application. Rory's first attempt to socialize leads her to ask a group of girls at lunch if she could join them. They agree and hit it off famously. After lunch, an insanely jealous Paris accosts Rory and tells her the group that she innocently stumbled into is "The Puffs", Chilton's famed secret sorority. Paris would do anything to join, and she begs Rory not to bad-mouth her to the group. At the next opportunity, Rory talks Paris up to the group and they are both accepted as pledges. The Puffs "kidnap" Rory, Paris and the other pledges very early one morning under the guise of taking them to breakfast, but instead take them to Headmaster Charleston's office to be initiated into the group. In the middle of the ceremony, they are discovered by Charleston and the security guards. He calls their parents and threatens their college careers, until Rory stands up to him and says that if he hadn't forced her to socialize, she wouldn't be there at all. He agrees and reconsiders, saying that she is a good student who deserves to go to Harvard. After being chided by Emily for her lack of participation, Lorelai joins the Booster Club and offers to host a fundraising fashion show at the Inn. To her dismay, she discovers that the Booster Club mothers are the models; not wanting to be mortified by herself, and to exact a little payback for being chided, she signs Emily up to model as well. On the day of the show, Lorelai calls Luke to fix the runway, and he catches the eye of Eva, the Booster Club president, who's quite taken with him. Lorelai becomes uncomfortable when she sees them huddled together talking. The day goes even further downhill when Lorelai discovers that she and Emily will be modeling matching mother-daughter outfits. They end up looking terrific and having a ball struting their stuff on the runway, and the show is a tremendous success. Back in Stars Hollow, Lorelai visits Luke at the diner and asks him not to go out with Eva. She offers the pathetic reason that she wants to keep her Stars Hollow life and her Chilton life separate, and that Luke's dating Eva will combine the two. Luke sees right through her, and after letting her know that he'll date whoever he pleases, tells her that he's not interested in Eva and was only giving her directions back to Hartford. Lorelai, secretly happy but realizing she's made a fool of herself, hurries out of the diner, to Luke's amusement.

  • Scott D. Pierce

    A wonderful hour that's fresh and funny. [4 Oct 2000, p.C08]

    Deseret News Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    Nothing short of a TV miracle: a family show that's sweet, but not too syrupy, bitingly funny, but not mean-spirited and fun for viewers of all ages, without appealing to the blandest common denominator. [5 Oct 2000, p.37]

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    Insightful, intelligent and very, very funny, the WB's Gilmore Girls is the best not-quite-drama, not-quite-comedy of the new television season. [5 Oct 2000, p.F6]

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    Hip, clever and hilarious...A sparkling little character study, quirky comedy, relationship drama and all-around delight. [5 Oct 2000, p.B43]

    Newsday Full Review
  • Terry Jackson

    Gilmore Girls is by far the most entertaining comedy-drama on the fall schedule and it should appeal to both The WB's core teenage audience and their parents; it doesn't talk down to either side of the age divide. [5 Oct 2000, p.1E]

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Ray Richmond

    Gilmore Girls is a genuine gem in the making, a family-friendly hour burdened by neither trite cliche nor precocious pablum. It is as fresh and real as "Dawson's Creek" is stale and contrived. In the process, it re-energizes the 8 o'clock hour with a bracing burst of heart. [5 Oct 2000]

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mike Lipton

    The season's nicest surprise.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Such a nice surprise: A sharply written show about a mother-daughter relationship filled with vibrant emotions instead of cheap sarcasm.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ann Hodges

    Gilmore Girls has got something - maybe just what it takes to grow on you. [5 Oct 2000, p.4]

    Houston Chronicle Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    It's a touching, funny, lively show that really does appeal to all ages.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Aaron Barnhart

    I liked this show immediately...A delightful, well-designed show from start to finish. [5 Oct 2000, p.E1]

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • David Zurawik

    One of the most pleasant surprises of the new season. [5 Oct 2000, p.1E]

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Adam Buckman

    Where most of the new shows I've been forced to sit through lately do just about everything wrong, Gilmore Girls gets most of the fundamentals right, especially the acting and writing. [5 Oct 2000, p.95]

    New York Post Full Review
  • Chuck Barney

    Gilmore Girls is brimming with fine performances all around, but the keys, of course, are its two leads. The appealing Graham has endured her share of TV flops ("Townies," "MYOB" and "Conrad Bloom"), but now she appears to have the kind of material that will allow her comic talents to shine. Meanwhile, Bledel is a promising newcomer with an intriguing round face, expressive eyes and a gift for deadpan retorts. [5 Oct 2000, p.D01]

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • John Levesque

    At times tonight, The WB's new Gilmore Girls will be well worth watching, easily the most arresting show of the young season. At other moments, it will make you wince at its unrelenting cuteness, an overeager poseur trying hard to impress. Please be patient. Next week's episode tempers the sweet with a little more savory, achieving a charming balance that promises to fill our Thursday nights this fall with an achingly on-point homage to mother-daughter relationships. [5 Oct 2000, p.E1]

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Howard Rosenberg

    An amusing, highly promising light drama from the WB about mother-daughter bonding that is tender, warm and loving in a natural way without heaping on the schmaltz. [4 Oct 2000, p.F1]

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    It's edgier than "7th Heaven," but not so edgy that parents will be turned off. It also expands the definition of a family and realistically shows the complexity of intergenerational relationships. [5 Oct 2000, p.D-6]

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    The comedy is diverting enough, but the poignant drama makes Gilmore Girls special. This series may not fit conventional expectations for family drama, but the show succeeds on that turf anyway. Isn't that what television desperately needs: more family programming? [5 Oct 2000, p.E1]

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    That's a lot of eccentricity for one hour, but Gilmore Girls never loses its even, humorous keel or its unforced warmth. There are clever lines, to be sure (Michel, ignoring Lorelai: "To me, you are the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons"), but they seldom turn nasty and never seem out of character. [5 Oct 2000, p.1D]

    USA Today Full Review
  • Eric Mink

    Gilmore Girls occasionally feels a bit too glib for its own good, with pacing sometimes a tad frantic for a one-hour family drama. Those quibbles aside, it's a welcome addition to prime time, and one of the best of this fall's crop of new series. [4 Oct 2000, p.100]

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ron Wertheimer

    A likable if lightweight not-too-dramatic series.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Laura Fries

    Works a little too hard to be everything to everyone. However, beyond the carefully calculated diversity of the pilot lies a pleasant and heartwarming series that may bridge the generation gap at the WB. It's still a chick show, but at least Gilmore Girls could attract women well past the N' Sync phase. [4 Oct 2000, p.7]

    Variety Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Gilmore Girls tries to be edgy, but at its core it's -- there's just noother word -- sweet. It's nothing groundbreaking. [5 Oct 2000, p.1E]

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Megan Rosenfield

    One of those "almost" shows--almost funny, almost interesting and almost family-friendly. There is potential here, particularly in the mother-daughter relationship between 32-year-old Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and 16-year-old Rory (Alexis Bledel), who could develop a real bond if they'd stop zinging one-liners for a few minutes. And if they can't stop the quips, maybe they could just speak more slowly so the audience can understand what they're saying. [5 Oct 2000, p.C07]

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Monica Collins

    The TV mom has changed - from out-of-touch authority figure to giggling girlfriend. This WB series attempts to depict a thoroughly modern single parent-child relationship. Yet, there's a sense this type of chumminess could only happen on TV. [5 Oct 2000, p.48]

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Robert P. Laurence

    There's a lot going on with Gilmore Girls, and once the writers can sort it all out, they might find an interesting series in there somewhere. [5 Oct 2000, p.E-9]
