…Lorelai proposed to Luke because she loved him. Moments before she told him that Rory was dropping out of Yale and going to live with her grandparents and he went right into problem-solving mode. He said, “Okay, here’s how we’re going to fix this.” On multiple occasions, Lorelai talked about wanting the ‘whole package’, someone to lighten the load of being a single parent, someone to come home to and vent about their day. It was this moment when she realized he was right here all along. Luke was always supportive of Lorelai and Rory and would go to the ends of the earth to help either one of them. This is the moment when Lorelai realizes she has the whole package and she doesn’t want to lose it. Especially when it looks like she is losing her daughter.
You didn’t socialize me properly. You made me a mama’s girl. Why don’t I hate you? Why don’t I want to be away from you? It’s going to be very hard to be Christiane Amanpour broadcasting live from a foxhole in Tehran with my mommy. I guess you’re just gonna have to learn how to operate a camera ‘cause I’ll need you there with me.
maybe cause she didn’t love him? just a thought…

Introverted Sensing (Si): Rory is much more down to earth than her mother. She adores the smell of old books, and familiar experiences. Rory has a specific future in mind and likes to have familiar things around her, so that she feels at home. She frequently talks about books she has read, or is reading, or plans to read, and everything she learns from them reinforces her worldview. She picks up the slack her mother leaves behind when attending to the daily details of life, and wanting to be everywhere on time, even if it’s four hours early. Rory doesn’t mind attending to her grandparents, and participating in their annual traditions; she enjoys getting to know them and finding a greater sense of self, both in the family and society .
Extroverted Feeling (Fe): She is open with her feelings and cares much about not offending others; Rory is much more considerate of her grandparents’ wishes than her mother is, and tries to mediate between them whenever things go pear-shaped at the dinner table. She’s friendly, sincere, and earnest about her passions, interests, ambitions, and feelings. She is supportive of her friends, reluctant to make waves, and cares about what other people think of her; whenever her behavior causes her mother or grandmother to disapprove, Rory isn’t happy until she puts things right.
Introverted Thinking (Ti): Her interest isn’t merely in learning things, but also understanding them; she enjoys bantering with her mother, and coming up with creative ideas and solutions around their problems. Whenever Rory has a super-serious decision to make, she likes to go be by herself awhile so that she can think it through carefully before forming a commitment. She can tactfully point out contradictions in others, and often wants to help them fix their problems.
Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Whenever around her mother, Rory’s imagination kicks in and she can argue six different theories at once, but this hyper-awareness also makes her fearful of the endless possibilities of the future, and uneasy about choosing just one option. Rory’s open-mindedness allows her to make a huge change in her life, when she decides the college she has wanted to go to her entire young life isn’t actually the one that she truly wants to go to, as a college student!
Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Lorelai can talk her way in and out of any situation, bringing up any external possibility to derail the conversation and throw a new kink into it. She is a restless, often forgetful, procrastinating dreamer who would much rather live on pizza and chips than cook, because cooking is boring, tedious, and stupid. Lorelai has a pop culture reference for every situation that appears to be unrelated to the topic at the time, but she can make it fit. She is a fountain of creative ideas and this bubbling fountain of sass, sarcasm, and seeing the humor in everything is not always appreciated by the dour townsfolk. Lorelai can switch conversations and topics at the speed of light, leaving her co-conspirators staring after her in open-mouthed awe.
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Her fierce determination for individuality is what caused the rift with her parents; Lorelai refused to toe the line and be the perfect Yale grad student, with the structured life. Instead, she forced her own path, often based on emotional impulses. Lorelai is very sensitive, compassionate, and loving, but is more comfortable trading banter than discussing her feelings. She instinctively senses the good in people and strives to bring it out, while being stubborn about her daughter having her own way and path in life. Lorelai is comfortable not being liked, if it means standing on her principles or fighting for something she believes in.
Extroverted Thinking (Te): Although she tends to be somewhat disorganized and has a habitual habit of being late everywhere she goes, Lorelai effectively runs an inn, keeps people in line, keeps track of work-related “stuff,” and usually knows how to fix problems and even give orders if necessary to keep things working properly. She has a rational (if a bit silly) explanation for all of her serious decisions and no desire to debate them. Lorelai struggles to keep her emotions out of her decision making process, but in time learns to think about the consequences to her actions (and warn Rory of her own poor decisions).
Introverted Sensing (Si): Every year on Rory’s birthday, Lorelai awakens her with the story of her birth. Though it is greatly exaggerated, she enjoys retelling it… and watching her old favorite movies… and reminiscing about the past… and dating old boyfriends… and yes, even participating in certain family traditions that help her connect to her parents, and relive childhood experiences.
