We wanted to like the first guy that Rory ever saw naked (as far as we know) but the crap he pulled senior year wasn’t cool. Purveyor of print media, not super-memorable, but we celebrate his commitment to the dying realm of the newsstand.
Manipulating that break-up isn’t the only not-cool thing Emily did over the course of the series, but it’s a perfect example of why we have no patience with her behavior.
And for cruel, prejudiced and let’s just say cruel again reasons.
Hey, remember when this asshole decided to crush the spirits of a talented young woman, because he could? But in later years, his lack of ambition and his inability to find happiness with Rory seemed to twist into something unpleasant and sad. Regina George showed more human compassion in “Mean Girls.” Rory’s other grandfather made Richard look like Saint Nicholas by comparison. Rory might have gotten suckered into finding Chad Michael Murray’s Season 1 bad boy charming, but we pity his military school, and any girl with even a vague crush on him. Anna’s treatment of Luke ranged from not nice to full-on mean, and it’s not the way grown-ups should behave. He loves his town, his heart’s in the right place, but he’s a dick. Doesn’t matter what anyone thinks, you’ll manipulate your way into getting whatever you want. Perhaps Colin never made much in the way of a positive contribution to society, but he was pleasant enough.
Not saying we’re GLAD he’s dead, but he sure wasn’t a generous guy while he was alive. Saeed Adyani/Netflix There are things about Emily that are nice. Luke’s Season 3-4 girlfriend/eventual wife was not, like, the worst, though her fidelity was not… Basically a duplicate of Colin, but with a hot accent, hence ranked ever-so-slightly higher than him. Bad at making newspaper hats, but hey, one of his stories got picked up by the New York Times at one point.
If you’ve ever watched television or seen a movie, you might’ve noticed something...occasionally one the characters will be wearing a robe. It’s obvious that anyone wearing a robe on tv or in a movie looks fantastic.
We honor The Dude for his nonchalance while shopping for heavy cream at his local Ralph’s. And we’re talkin' about the Dude here - the Dude from Los Angeles.
Little known fact, but “Thou shalt not be uncomfortable” was the eleventh commandment, but had to be left off because there was only room for ten on the tablets that Moses brought down from Mount Sinai.
Ferris Bueller, My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris wearing a robe at 31 Flavors last night. Tobias Funke, When Vincent Vega barges in with an OD’ing Mia Wallace in tow, Lance (the friendly neighborhood drug dealer) is only able to his cool thanks to his puke-green bathrobe.
(This list is occasionally shallow.) Andrew owned Stars Hollow Books. Of all of Rory’s newspaper cohorts, Glenn didn’t do too badly for himself. One of Rory’s boyfriends, and thus, oh so lacking in perfection? Jess seemed to understand the artistic, creative side of Rory on a level that no one else did.
