In “It Should Have Been Lorelai”, Sherry says that Christopher phones Rory every Wednesday night at 7 pm. Now he is phoning her at 6.45 on Wednesday morning.
Rory is busy getting ready for school in the morning, how does she have time to talk on the phone? Christopher even says that he can’t talk for long, but he’s sent an email, and to add an extra 40 minutes onto next week’s call. There’s no way she can chat on the phone for 40 minutes before school. It seems as if Christopher has figured out a way to make his weekly phone call just a quick check-in. He is the king of minimal effort fathering.
