PARIS: I just got the job [of school newspaper editor].
RORY: Oh. Congratulations.
PARIS: Thank you. And don’t worry, you’ll have some role. How’s covering the new parking lot landscaping sound?
Paris is not kidding – writing up the new parking lot is the first assignment that she sets Rory when school resumes the next semester.
To me it seems unbelievable that a junior would be given the job of editor over seniors, who would already have a year of experience under their belt. However, it’s not impossible The Franklin is a school newspaper specifically for juniors to work on, and Paris can be very forceful when she wants something. Rory certainly didn’t seem to make much effort to get chosen as editor, which she should have done as an aspiring journalist.
