Lorelai Out of Water is the 12th episode of Season 3 on WB drama Gilmore Girls.


Alex invites Lorelai on a fishing trip. Sounds like fun...except Lorelai doesn't know which end of the pole to hold. Enter Luke, the Izaak Walton of Stars Hollow. Paris tries to impeach Rory.


Luke is opposed to having Taylor's attorney Nicole oversee the paperwork for the construction of the new soda shop until he meets the attractive redhead. Lane's clever scheme to get her mother's permission to attend the prom horribly backfires. Luke offers to teach Lorelai the fine art of angling after Alex invites her to go fishing. Rory and Lorelai clear out their garage for Lane's band. Paris calls for Rory's impeachment by the student council.


Sure, we’re girls, so we could only be arguing about a boy, right? Sexist, white-haired –

In the future, I would advise you to think long and hard about accepting any responsibility if you intend to run away from it at the first sign of conflict
