‘Pulp Friction‘ is one of my favorite Gilmore Girls episodes. I love it when there is any ‘theme’ involved – whether it’s a crazy event in Stars Hollow or just something Lorelai or Rory puts together because they felt like it. In this episode, the party is not put on by a Gilmore girl, but rather is a celebration of Finn’s birthday.
Robert asks Rory to be his date for Finn’s birthday (see yesterday’s interview with Nick Holmes aka Robert Grimaldi) and, seeing as how Logan was dating another girl, Rory accepts. The theme of the party: Quentin Tarantino. Rory seems to be glowing about it – whether from the prospect of the date or at payback for Logan, I’ll leave that up to you.
The party is as decked out as we have come to expect. Rory dresses as Gogo Yubari, in homage to the Kill Bill movies. And making good use of her old Chilton uniform. Here’s the Kill Bill scene where Gogo fights Black Mamba:
Here’s Rory and Robert arriving to Finn’s party – Logan has his own date too, and seems a lot more jealous of Rory than she does of him (see, more jealousy!). What do you think – does Rory make a good Gogo?:
If you love this episode, check out more scenes from the Quentin Tarantino party (where Logan shows how jealous he is):
