What was wrong with the boy on the debate team? What was the past between him and Paris?
He's just scared to death of her because she's so competitive.
He used to attend Chilton with Rory and Paris, but left because Paris made him so nervous.
Thanks Chad. I started watching the show at the end of last season.
Then you should remember him. He was in the episode earlier this year when Rory, Paris, et al were assigned together to do a scene of Shakespeare. It was the one where that guy (whose name escapes me) who Paris adored, but had a crush on Rory left for military school (i.e. Dawson's Creek).
I miss that episode.
Because I'm obligated to post in every Gilmore Girls thread . . .
I keep expecting the writing to slip, but it's just so tight. I love how this week's episode ended. That big confession that Lorelai made to Chris was so cliched -- I've heard one like it in countless tv shows and romantic comedies -- but the writers of GG never let us get away with cliched emotions. Instead, Chris let her have it, forcing her to realize how self-absorbed her confession actually was.
Great, GREAT show -- the only one I watch every week.
I have to admit, I'm liking Paris more as Rory's insane friend than as her archrival. Even it is weird after seeing Liza Weil playing an adult on "Special Victims Unit" back in the fall.
I've pretty much got the formula for "Gilmore Girls" down, now - it softens me up by being incredibly funning and joyous for the first half-hour, then pulls the rug out from under in the second. And I still fall for it, just about every time.
Paris' 175wpm mention of the CD of the tape of the audition of the something-or-other had me busting a gut. I wonder if they had to do a lot of takes. It was also odd to see the actress play the wife of the guy that stabbed Carter and Lucy
The writing for this episode was better than average, which is pretty darn good for this show.
To expand on why Brad (the debate boy) gets so nervous around Paris, at Chilton he was obviously afraid of being on stage.
The writers were totally goofing on themselves when they had Paris obsess over the WPM rate of debates because this show features some of the highest WPM dialogue on TV nowadays.
I thought Madchen Amick was totally a hottie (loved her ever since her Twin Peaks days). Chris has good taste.
I thought Lorelai was going to beg Chris to take her and dump Amick's character, but she went the other way, and Chris was right to blast her for the massive emotional dump she just laid her his relationship doorsteps. Good for him.
I was totally LOL when Lorelai forget to tell her assistant that the CD drop for Lane was at 10 a.m., not 9 p.m. so he was jogging for an hour extra. *Chuckle*
So then let's speculate, shall we?
Why do you think that Christopher's girlfriend is so obssessed with getting to know Rory, but not Lorelai? And, what's the only thing Christopher could do wose to Lorelai than rebuff her?
I think they're gearing up for the end of the season. Let's face it, it's February and it's time to think cliffhanger. I think Christopher's gonna try and take Rory.
But Rory's old enough to decide who she wants to live with, right? So when you add Lorelai's disapproval of Jess into the mix, then things just might be getting ineteresting.
The battle for Rory would be interesting, especially with the emotional wounds that Lorelai just opened up and dumped on Christopher's lap.
But if I were Sherri, what would be the appeal to raise a 16 year old who'll be gone in a few years to college anyhow? I'd think she'd want to start a family with Christopher from scratch, not have to deal with Lorelai on a regular basis (which she made abundantly clear that she did not want that).
