Now that’s an interesting title for something that isn’t so obvious this episode. It’s in reference to a comment Lorelai makes at the beginning about being sick and wishing she can’t call it a cold or whatever, but instead a “haunted leg.” xD She cracks me up. I want Lorelai as a best friend, not a mother.
After this beginning comment though, it’s never brought up again later in the episode. So maybe it’s in reference to all the different heartaches they are going through? Rory is still upset about the whole Jess and Shane thing even though she still has Dean. Lorelai is still upset about the whole Chris thing and especially Emily going behind her back to call him.
I can’t believe Rory is upset with Jess though. In this moment I take Jess’s side. She did kiss him, told him not to tell anyone, and then never broke up with Dean. So he is in every right to go out with someone else. Why is she upset? Meanwhile, I get why Chris is upset, but I take Lorelai’s side. He is still going to be with Sherrie, so what does he think he can eat his cake too? But man would it be nice to have someone go after you like that!
The only level-headed one was Luke this episode. He made true statements about the immune system and he was obnoxiously funny about the whole Kirk asking Lorelai out on a date thing.
