I loved how sweet Rory was in this episode, planning a whole week of birthday fun for her mom. That pizza at the end looked like perfection. It was sweet how Jackson felt so left out on Sookie’s behalf. It was funny how Luke blew up at the lunch with Nicole’s parents about his Jess problems, but not hilarious. Poor Kirk.
Lorelai is so lucky to have a guy friend like Luke. I need someone like that in my life to help be my handyman and fix everything once a year that I cannot fix. Their little argument over the chocolate cookie thing she was eating (I have no idea what it’s called) was really cute. I love watching the chemistry between them unfold. It’s beautiful.
