“You look fat”

EMILY: I don’t know. The man is so sensitive. He reads so much into every little perceived slight.
LORELAI: Yeah. I remember one time when I was a kid, Dad had put on some weight, and he bought a new suit to try to cover it up. And he wore it for us and he said, ‘How do I look?’ and I said, ‘You look fat.’ [pause] But I guess that wasn’t really a perceived slight … so, I’ll think of another example.

This episode was written by Daniel Palladino, so naturally we have to have Lorelai be nasty about someone’s weight. This time it’s her own father, and apparently she was cruel to the overweight even in childhood! He’s just determined to turn her into a hateful character.
