My ‘Gilmore’ man
I watched Gilmore Girls on and off for years but never have I really been a loyal fan, not like I was loyal to Friends or Six Feet Under but whenever I saw it on I got hooked.
Now with beautiful DVR IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ve been catching up on old episodes I never saw, most of the first few seasons.
At first my boyfriend teased me about the show. Every time he saw me watching it heÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢d comment with ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“are they all on speedÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â because the dialogue moves very quickly and then sometimes heÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢d come in with ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“come on, you must notice they all talk like they are on speed.ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Of course I noticed how quickly the conversations flow but then again I think that is one of the charms about the show.
After a while I noticed he was saying less and less. Pretty soon he was watching more and more. Then one day we had this conversation (paraphrased of course):
Him: (in reference to Laurelai talking to another guy) I thought she liked Luke.
Me: She does like Luke.
Him: Then why is she with that guy.
Me: Because she doesnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t know she likes Luke yet.
Him: Obviously Luke likes her.
Me: Yes, of course.
Him: Well he should do something about it. They belong together.
That was when I knew he was hooked and well I guess I was hooked for good. This is exactly why we get along so well, heÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s a big ol sap like me.
