Question: Where is Lane's dad on Gilmore Girls? Is he around and not seen, or did I miss an episode in which they discussed his present whereabouts? — Lyra

Ausiello: From Amy Sherman-Palladino: "We referred to Lane's dad in the first and second seasons, and then we treated Lane like she had no dad. And every now and then we ask ourselves, 'Are we ever going to see Lane's dad?' We talk about having a scene where there's this room in the back of the house and [Mrs. Kim] walks in and there's a little man with a cup of tea — and that's Lane's dad."
