I remember watching this one, but not all of the minor character parts. There were a lot of fights in this one and I could understand the sides of all the minor characters. I understand the pain Lane was going through, especially coming from the Asian background experience. Her mother was yelling at her to go to her room and “calm down” and then when she was running up the stairs, her mother yelled after her that she wasn’t calming down. I understood how upset Lane felt in that moment because that’s exactly what Asian parents do. They yell at you for having emotions. They kick you while you are down thinking this is how you are going to be a “better” person.
I understood why Dean was so upset Rory was going to follow the “rules” of the picnic basket bid and go have lunch with Jess. I understood why he needed to talk to Lorelai. Any boyfriend would not be happy with his girl spending time with another guy, let alone have a picnic with him. You could really tell though, especially by the end of the episode, how much Rory enjoyed spending time with Jess and how much he’s growing on her.
I understood how Kirk felt about every year not having anyone make him a basket, not even his mother. He’s the funny quirky awkward character you love to feel sorry for. I didn’t like how Jackson came over and just demanded him to hand over the basket Kirk already won.
My favorite lol lines:
“My mother agreed with me.”
“I appreciate that.”
Also – “You’re sure he’s Korean?”
