“Grandma’s pen”

[Rory searches for her bracelet in the living room]

LORELAI: Anything?
RORY: Just Grandma’s pen.
LORELAI: Leave it there.

While searching for the bracelet, Rory finds the Montblanc pen that Emily gave her for successfully completing a year of study at Chilton. This is a very expensive pen, yet Rory has allowed it to get lost under the seat of an armchair for who knows how long. It’s meant to show how adorably unmaterialistic Rory is (ha!), but it just makes her look spoiled and ungrateful. Lorelai encourages this attitude by telling her to leave the pen there. There are times that one sympathises with Emily.
