Lorelai in Hiding

LORELAI: All right . . . we’re gonna have to move … Take off in the middle of the night, leave everything behind, assume different identities. I’ll join a local community theater and I’ll drive you to soccer. It’ll work for many years until the FBI comes to get me, and by that time, you’re on your own.

Lorelai jokes that rather than tell Kirk she’s not interested in dating him she will leave town and begin a new life (this is sounding a bit like when she dumped Max by immediately fleeing Stars Hollow to hide out in another state!).

Lorelai says that she will join a local community theatre – in fact, she takes part in amateur dramatics in Stars Hollow too, and received rave reviews for taking the lead in Fiddler on the Roof. Lauren Graham began her acting career by doing two years of summer stock in Michigan, suggesting that this may be an inside joke.

By the end, Lorelai seems to have forgotten the original reason she became a fugitive, saying that the FBI will eventually track her down, as if she has committed a crime, rather than simply moved towns to avoid Kirk.
