The Lorelais' First Day at Yale is the 2nd episode of Season 4 on WB drama Gilmore Girls.

Synopsis

The Gilmore girls share Rory's (Alexis Bledel) first day at Yale University by moving Rory into her dorm, where she meets a strange new roommate, Tanna Schrick (guest star Olivia Hack) and learns that her old adversary, Paris (Liza Weil), will also be sharing her room. Overwhelmed with excitement, Rory is also embarrassed to find that she isn't quite ready to let Lorelai (Lauren Graham) go. Meanwhile, Luke (Scott Patterson) continues to wrestle with the aftermath of his disastrous cruise with Nicole.

Plot

While Luke is willing to lend Lorelai his truck to help Rory move into her dorm, he's not too thrilled when the project turns out to take all day and all night. Rory's roommates turn out to be a jock, a 15-year-old prodigy sorely lacking in socialization skills, and to her astonishment, her old nemesis from Chilton. Nicole's partners descend on the diner and threaten to ensnare Luke in a morass of paperwork.

Trivia

  • While getting ready to leave, Lorelai and Rory discuss various people they could superimpose in a picture of Rory. They debate over whether two of them, Lady Bird Johnson and Pat Summerall, are dead. At the time, both were still living, but Lady Bird Johnson later died in 2007 and Pat Summerall in 2013.
