At a reception thrown by the elder Gilmores in honor of the graduation, Rory is shanghaied by some of her old DAR cronies only to be saved by Logan, oiling over to remind her how beautiful she is. Meanwhile, Lorelai is ambushed in similar fashion by some nosy women wondering just how it is possible that she has a daughter old enough to attend college. Well, ladies, when a girl becomes a woman...listen, I don't have time, just trust me, it's possible. Also, lock up your daughters. Lorelai is also rescued by a frosted, shiny gentleman -- Christopher calls her cell and asks her to meet him outside before he comes in. Apparently, they haven't seen each other in person since the divorce became final. They do that UBER-annoying thing of saying "hi" to each other -- you know what I mean? I'm not saying it's annoying to greet another person, but why do TV shows and romantic comedies try to make us believe that it is in some way cute to nervously say "hi" back and forth like a couple of seventh graders at a dance? Whatever. I'm having a hard time explaining what I mean, and I see it's making me sound like a grumpy old man at a bus stop. "HI?! In my day, people said hello by punching each other in the nuts!"
