Back from commercial, this insufferable scene is still going on. Rory says that she wouldn't print a picture of the Yale president chowing down at the campus bake sale; however, she WOULD print a picture of someone smashing a pie in the president's face, if said someone did it as a political statement. The Princeton guy chimes in, saying he'd do the very same thing. "Quentin," Rory says in mock surprise, "you agreed with me! I didn't think you were capable." Y'all, seriously, I am not trying to be all mean and bitter -- sometimes I do actually like Rory -- but why in hell did they use this scene? She's wretched. They've also run a laugh track under the "funny" things she says that sounds like it was stolen from a scene of Jack Tripper running into a wall outside the Regal Beagle.
After the panel, Christopher and Lorelai are walking out, continuing to be mystified by the genius the created. "My God," Chris says, "she's smart." Lorelai nods. "She is smart. She's Anthony Michael Hall in Breakfast Club smart," she says. "All me, baby. All me." Suddenly, Chris receives a text message, and says it's from Gigi's new nanny. "Oh," Lorelai snarks. "Does Sienna know about this?" (By the way, did y'all see Sienna Miller's naked torso in the most recent Vanity Fair? Disappointed! Let's just say I felt an unprecedented wish that she'd put on any of these outfits rather than torment the world with her breasts.) Chris is upset; the nanny has texted (messaged?) that she can't work Sunday, when he's going to be out of the house, with family, visiting his dad's grave: "I'm thinking it might not be the thrill for Gigi that it is for the rest of us. This single parent stuff..." Lorelai smiles with much irony. "Fun, huh?" she says. Chris says that he's having an impossible time getting Gigi into any private preschools. "You could always send her to public school," Lorelai says. Chris: "Yes, I could, if I wanted to kill my mother." Uh...do I have to go there, you legions of public-school alumni? Will you rise up with me now and strike down the oppressor? The same oppressor who so braggadociosly eluded mere episodes ago to his miserable track record as a private-schooler? Will you say it with me now? SHUT UP, CHRISTOPHER. Lorelai very foolishly now volunteers to watch Gigi any time he needs her. She has, she says, plenty of Rory's old books and games and will be happy to help him out.
