Emily and Michel Meet

(They introduce themselves and shake hands)
EMILY: Enchantée. D’où venez vous?
MICHEL: Paris.
EMILY: J’adore Paris. Nous y allons chaque printemps.

Emily says, “Pleased to meet you. Where are you from?”, and Michel says he’s from Paris. Emily says, “I love Paris. We go there every spring”.

In fact, Richard and Emily go to Europe every second year in the fall, and specifically refused to go to Paris in the spring, questioning whether there was anything to see at that time of year.

Emily and Michel instantly hit it off, with Emily pronouncing him a “charming man”, and Michel telling Lorelai, “I just love your mother”. It makes sense that the two people who most enjoy  torturing Lorelai would like each other.

  1. J’adore this scene. It is so unexpected because I think it’s the first time in the series where Michel decides to be something other than a scowling grump. It’s so weird to see him turn on the charm. He can turn it on like a high-wattage light bulb, completely at-will. The fact that he is inspired by the rather challenging and somewhat manipulative Emily makes this little moment all-the-more hilarious.
