Gilmore Girls was added to Netflix at the beginning of October and if you're anything like us you've binge-watched all seven seasons while laugh-crying and eating way too much junk food. While the show absolutely holds up (minus some questionable early '00s fashion and music choices) we do have some questions about the Girls that remain frustratingly unanswered. 

 

1. Why would Chilton accept Rory two months into Sophomore year?

"Welcome to Chilton! Here's 40 pounds of homework" (via tookieclothespins)

 

And why would they give her like a week's notice to find funding? Enrollment is decided at the beginning of the year. Does Chilton just enjoy stressing out 16-year-old girls?

 

2. Why do they eat at Luke's every day?

 

it's not for the friendly service (via giphy)

Luke and Lorelai's chemistry could not outweigh the financial strain of eating at least two meals a day out on a single income. Maybe Luke's as a coffee stop makes sense, but when the best chef in the entire world ever Sookie could make your meals for FREE, why in the world would you go to a mere okay diner?

Plus, Stars Hollow is a 40 minute bus ride from Chilton, yet Rory still has time to go to Luke's before school? And why is it always so crowded when she does? Is everyone in town just hanging out at diners at 6:30 in the morning?

 

3. What was up with Luke and Jess's apartment?

some wardrobe mixups were inevitable (via fckyeahgilmoregirls)

Luke and Jess were just living in one big room together without and doors or privacy. Luke specifically bought the building next door to expand his apartment, but he decided a separate room with walls and a door to muffle the sounds of death metal wasn't a better choice than sharing a big room with a teenager?

 

6. What was up with Luke and Lorelai's home improvements?

There's no way Lorelai wouldn't make TJ use the fuzzy hammer? (via weheartit)

Why would Lorelai and Luke do all that home renovating just to make the master bedroom bigger? Is Luke just obsessed with making all rooms bigger without actually adding any new rooms?

 

7. Michel was not a good employee. Why did Lorelai and Sookie hire him at the Dragonfly?

your ENTIRE JOB is talking to people (via leslienorp)

As a concierge Michel's main duty was to be nice to guests, but he was blatantly rude and actively avoided doing any work. Sure, Sookie and Lorelai may have put up with him at the Independence Inn, but it's just poor management for a new business to hire someone so incredibly off-putting for a job that requires human interaction.

 

8. How the hell was Rory Valedictorian?

Dignified representative of the student body (via yinekarnimacikti)

There's no way Rory had better grades than Paris at Chilton.  Rory got really bad grades when she first started -- even extra credit won't take a D to an A.  Any group project would have never done as well without Paris's leadership -- Rory was totally riding on Paris's coattails.
