Tissues and lots of tissues, that’s what we asked on most of the scenes of Gilmore Girls. The series perfectly depicts the honest and complicated day-to-day intricacies of the mother-daughter relationship.
What were some of the most heart-warming moments in Gilmore girls?
We got to see them back in our lives in 2016. The feeling was the same. ‘Gilmore Girls’ are known to give tear-inducing moments. Here we are in 2020, bringing to you the 5 most heartwarming moments on the show, that we’ll live with us forever.
1. Gilmore Girls scene when Rory excitedly showed her grandmother her home .
The converted shed, although not luxurious like her grandparents’ home, was a home full of dreams and fond memories for Rory. In this scene of Gilmore Girls, when she shows her house to Emily, her starry eyes prove that no matter the circumstance, a mother can truly make anywhere feel like home.
Though Emily leaves the house heartbroken, it was heart-touching to see Rory’s feelings for her tiny home.
2. Rory was homesick and never wanted to leave Lorelai for college
Rory reminded us of the time when we had to leave our parents for college. Just after four hours of being alone in Yale, Rory started to feel alone and homesick. She dialled her mother just to fight. “I’m an adult! Adults don’t want their mommies! I don’t even know any bathroom small talk! You turned me into a mommy’s girl!”
The scene of Gilmore Girls is so relatable. Those who have had to leave their parents for college have felt the same. Her lashing out was very real.
But, Lorelai came over with an awesome plan. She ordered food from every restaurant in town and invited all the girls on Rory’s hall to eat takeout. Moreover, they laughed at the delivery boys. Everyone had a blast. Rory somehow wasn’t mortified. She gained the confidence and the next morning, she already had friends.
3. Gilmore Girls scene when Rory got drunk and Lorelai held her hair
Lorelai has proved over and over again that she is the best TV mother. In this scene on Gilmore Girls, when Rory was fully drunk after the Founder’s Day punches and she couldn’t contain her emotions, Lorelai didn’t yell at her for drinking too much.
In fact, she held her hair back and started wiping her tears. She was there to comfort her, even though Rory was a complete mess that day. She made sure, she’s there for her, always!
4. When Rory became the mother to Lorelai
Lorelai and Rory are more like BFFs. Though Rory behaves childishly often, she became a mother for Lorelai when she needed her the most.
After an unexpected break-up with Luke, Lorelai was devastated. She was wallowing and unable to get out of her bed. In this heart-breaking scene on Gilmore Girls, Rory returns home to comfort her mother in a maternal fashion. Yes, she was stroking her hair, wiping her tears, and just holding her until the pain subsided, just like a mother does to her daughter.
It was one of many tender moments when Rory acted as a mother to Lorelai. But this scene was special. We could not hold back our tears.
5. When Emily told Richard she didn’t sign on to his dying
If you aren’t crying yet, Emily will compel you to reach for tissues. Emily and Richard are not explicitly romantic. Yet, in this one, when Richard gets the heart attack, Emily couldn’t hold back her emotions.
She didn’t shed a tear, but she reminded her husband the promise of staying together till eternity.
She told Richard, “No, I did not sign on to your dying. And this not going to happen”. Their banter in that heavy moment was heart-wrenching.
