EMILY: So Lorelai, how are you feeling?
LORELAI: Um, well, I’m tipsy, but just short of seeing pink elephants.
EMILY: No, I mean about you getting married. It’s only a week away.
As Lorelai and Max’s wedding is planned for Saturday August 20, it must now be Saturday August 13. In real life, those dates were on Mondays, not Saturdays, in 2001.
