Five. Nice white pants and collared shirt under the Official Harvard Sweatshirt, by the way, extra. Lorelai reads from a guide and wows that Harvard is three hundred years old. A guy awkwardly rides his bike (with a basket) right behind the girls and just next to some stairs. Six. Seven. Wait. That's white pants girl. She just went to get another bike with a basket. Yikes! White pants girl is suddenly right behind them! Run, girls! As you can see, the extras in this scene are much more interesting than Lorelai droning on fun facts about Harvard. I didn't go. I don't care. White Pants girl is now stalking Lorelai and Rory, animatedly talking to someone off-camera. She finally walks away as Lorelai points out that Fred Gwynne went to Harvard. Herman Munster. Shout-out to their own Grampa, who also played Herman Munster. Seven. They stop at a coffee kiosk. Rory goes to get coffee. Lorelai reads from the kiosk about people who need roommates. Somehow Rory can still hear her even though she's a good eight feet away. Rory walks back and says that it'll be two years before she goes to Harvard. Lorelai says she is going to need a place to stay so that she can come visit. She says that she's going to visit every other day, and asks whether that's too much. Lorelai is standing next to a flyer that reads, "GET PAID TO WATCH PORN!" Sign me up. Official Harvard Sweatshirt Eight walks over with every ounce of obvious in his body and stands next to Lorelai. He then gives her the over-obvious once-over. This kid's not a subtle actor by any means. He might as well have his jaw drop to the floor, and have his eyes bug out as steam shoots from his ears and we hear, "A-OOOOOOGAH!" He starts flirting with Lorelai and she flirts back. Rory listens from the coffee kiosk, and it has to be a gross feeling to watch your mom flirt with boys almost your age. Lorelai pretends she's in class with Harvard Eight. Flirt, flirt, flirt. He says he might see her at the party that night, and walks off. Rory brings Lorelai her coffee without going, "Here, Mommy!" like I would have. Lorelai beams that she's going to like college, and says how happy she is she finally got to use the word "existentialist" in a sentence.
