< snerk > Thjat’s funny.
I said to a friend of mine that Lane and Brian were obviously being pimped out along the way.
So how do you think Rory and Lorelei are going to be next week at the christening for Sookie’s baby? I don’t think it’s going to go as well as Sookie wishes. Seems to me that this rift between the Gilmore Girls will last most of the season.
(And if I may hijack my own thread, h.sapiens,is that you in the ads on Jeopardy when they’re are advertising the website?
Let’s say they have 3 gigs a week- get room & board from church members, and get paid $500 a pop.
$1500 x 8= $12000.
One totally unrealistic aspect- them being so hungry. Folks, we church people may deny ourselves boozing & smoking & carousing, but we can eat. Now granted, these are Seventh-Day Adventist churches (I have a feeling the script writers really don’t know SDA that well- even C’tian rock is kinda suspect to them), and SDA recommends a vegan diet, so I can understand how they may be dying for meat, but still they’d have been filled with veggies & whole grains out the wazoo.
Did anybody think we were going to see the van wreck as the driver passed out in the last moments of the show?
I would. Like DeVena said, you can enjoy the show without knowing about Rory’s time in high school, or the backstory of why Lorelei and her parents don’t get along, but it does make the show more enjoyable.
I thought the same thing. Xtians love to feed guests. And considering they stayed at people’s houses along the way there is no way they went hungry.
It totally pointed in that direction didn’t it? Weird. I bet the whole band story for this episode was really a left over from an early draft of the script that had them crashing and having to use the money they made to get the van fixed and get home. In rewrites that was dropped but they still wanted to have the band in the episode.
And did anyone else think the band sounded terrible at the gig.
I usually HATE TJ… but I thought he had some of the best lines in this episode.
Let’s see…two months. Let’s say they did 4 shows a week–that’s 32 shows. Let’s also say they got $400 per show…thats $12800. Let’s also say they sold an average of 10 t-shirts per show at $10 a pop…that’s $3200. Now they’re at $16,000, but they had to buy gasoline, which I understand is getting expensive nowadays (I don’t drive and don’t know how much mileage a van like Gil’s would get, and we don’t know how far they went)…but let’s say they spent $3000 on gas ($375 a week). Thus far they’ve netted $13000…but they had to eat, and buy toothpaste and shampoo (for a while) and, ah, feminine products for lane. So they spent $3950 on essentials, which is about $493 a week.
Is still don’t buy it. From where are they getting $400/show? Where I come from, good bands playing in a good bar command no more than $5 at the door. This is a lame, unknown band playing in a church basement. I find it very unlikely that there’s a cover of any kind. Even if it was a buck or two, the church has to keep some of that. And even if we allow that the band got a portion of the door, how many people were at the show we saw? Could they really have been averaging better than 20 people/show?
Since they have no cd to sell, their only other revenue source is t-shirts. I find it difficult to believe that before the “tour” they could afford to buy much of a supply.
Even if they didn’t pay for one single meal, there no way they cleared enough for gas, ear plugs and Brian’s methadone.
On an unrelated matter, what are the chances of a nasty freeway accident involving TJ and Michele?
I have to agree that Paris was being much more annoying than usual, but then again I think she hit it right on the head when she said that Lorelai was really keeping her around as a connection to Rory. Small doses of Paris and Michel are ok by me. But only small doses.
If this baby shower goes well, I will drink beer from Miss Patty’s shoes.
Oh, I knew abou the boyfriends (3, if I recall aright: the college boy she lost her virginity to while in high school; Asher Fleming; and Jonathan form Buffy. I was just making an obviously bad joke that the reason for her lack of friends is her lack of social skills, and that guys wouldn’t care much about the social skills because she was looking unusually beautiful last night.
Lane’s Mom planned the band tour- she is a friggin’ force of nature. You don’t think she squeezed every SDA pastor she knew even remotely for what she could get for her kid’s band? The SDA was founded by a strong woman & I’m sure strong women still run it (they just let men be the pastors).
I’m new to the GG… having been skeptical of its worth in the past, I now eat my words.
I’ve watched all of the prior seasons, and I’m really digging the latest (my first with new eps.)
Love the Lorelai/Luke combo but I’m really hating Rory right now. She seems completely lost, which I get as a plot line, but to have her relationship with her mother affected? I don’t buy it, given Lorelai’s past and her commitment to her daughter.
I can’t wait for the next ep though… the preview showed Rory evidencing some serious Lorelai attitude.
Not quite the same place: Rory was attempting to escape the situation with Dean mroe than she was trying to get away from her mother, and didn’t quite cut her off. The current situation is less a repetition than it is a continuation of a theme. Lorelai has a great fear of become as distant with Rory as Emily is with her; she knows it’s possble, hence her reluctance to use the Mom card.
