November 21, 2006: Synchronicity

I found it quite appropriate that the theme of tonight’s episode was printed on an old rock T-shirt Chris stole from Lorelai when they were teenagers: Synchronicity. It began the second Lorelai put that shirt on and said she’d never take it off. (Here, let me quote you some of the lyrics by The Police: "Synchronicity / A connecting principle / Linked to the invisible / Almost imperceptible / Something inexpressible / Science insusceptible / Logic so inflexible / Causally connectable / Yet nothing is invincible.")Is it just me, or do those lines explain exactly what’s going on between these three couples: Chris and Lorelai, Luke and April, and Rory and Logan? Each of them is bound together in this episode by odd timing and twists of fate: After 20 years, Chris and Lor are now the married couple settling into the house that, ironically, Luke rebuilt.

Question: I recently watched a marathon of Andy Griffith shows, and on one Goober does an imitation of Cary Grant where he says "Judy, Judy, Judy!" Can you tell me what movie that line is from?

Answer: Cary Grant never said the line "Judy, Judy, Judy" in any movie, although in Only Angels Have Wings (1939) his sultry ex-wife's name is Judy (played by Rita Hayworth), and he does say "Susan, Susan, Susan" (to Katharine Hepburn, whose speech patterns were equally distinctive) in Bringing Up Baby (1938). And yet it's the st read more

I was channel surfing and ...

Question: I was channel surfing and came across a movie with Katharine Hepburn playing an Asian character; her eyes seemed to be taped back to give them an Asian look. What was the movie's title, and was there any backlash against it because a white person was playing an Asian character? Answer: The film is Dragon Seed (1944), based on the novel by Pearl S. Buck, a Hillsboro, West Va., native who was raised in China by missionary parents. It involves World War II atrocities against the Chinese by Japanese soldiers. I'm unaware of any significant backlash against the casting of Caucasian actors like Katharine Hepburn, Walter Huston, read more
