Sookie’s House

[Lorelai and Rory walk out of some bushes near Sookie and Jackson’s house]

LORELAI: See, three minutes faster. I also found a way to get to Al’s Pancake World that shaves a good forty seconds off our normal route.

Another inside joke about the difficulties of getting to Sookie’s house ā€“ even though the set used for Sookie’s is right next to the set for Lorelai’s home.

Lorelai and Rory are going to pick up Sookie and Jackson to go to the festival, which makes no sense. Sookie and Jackson live in the opposite direction to the town square, which Lorelai and Rory live close to. It would make more sense for Sookie and Jackson to walk to Lorelai and Rory’s house, and then onto the festival together. As it is, they would all have a long walk together from Sookie’s house to the town square – but Lorelai and Rory have to do it twice.

As it turns out, Lorelai and Rory have wasted their time, because when they get to Sookie’s, she and Jackson are having a fight, so they quietly walk back into town without them. Sookie has filled the house with tons of “manly” objects from Kim’s Antiques, including a stuffed grizzly bear (this must have all cost a fortune!).

Jackson demands that she get rid of it all and put the house back the way it was. Easier said than done ā€“ I can’t imagine Mrs Kim tamely taking everything back and refunding the money! Anyway, however implausibly, we can assume their ridiculous fight is over for this episode.
