November 7, 2006: Squish, Squish, Squish Season 7, Episode 6

I'm pretty sure my old Magnavox isn't going fuzzy. And thanks to my contacts, I've got a perfect 20/20. But I swear I just saw a bunch of people in Stars Hollow getting soft around the edges. Let's start with Luke: packing lunches, checking for biology homework, reminding about sweaters, swimsuits and pickups after practice. Sure, it's with a typical Luke delivery - curt and succinct. But did you catch that huge smile on his face when April ran back into the diner to grab the lunch she'd left behind? Someone's falling in love with his daughter. More proof? The two of them close together on the couch, Rory-and-Lorelai style, pigging out on pizza and sweet rolls. 'Nuff said. Now Lorelai. Did you ever think she'd attend a stuffy, foofy event unless her parents forced her into it? But Chris really wanted to go to parents' weekend at Yale. So after some slight prodding, she actually agreed. Sure, she complained about the too-green grass and trees, and the piped-in autumnal smells. (By the way, the campus really is that gorgeous. But I am pretty sure Yale's fighting cheer is "Boola Boola!" not "Go, Bulldogs!" All you Yalies, feel free to chime in.) And she was pretty crabby throughout the brunch - though her parents were there, so can you blame her? - and during the lecture. But every time she met someone new, she enthusiastically said, "We're Rory's parents!" Big emphasis on parents with a capital P. For all her bitching, she loved being there with Chris. Lorelai, happy at a formal? Squish, squish, squish. It happened to Chris, too. He's never been a tough guy, really. He's mostly aloof in a jerky sort of way. And you'd rarely think of him as sentimental. If he ever had any feelings, he'd turn on them every time. (Remember the last time he wanted to be involved in Lorelai and Rory's lives? Then hello, Gigi!) But he finally admitted to being the absent parent and not the hockey- practice/violin-lesson/SAT-tutoring dad (like the one Luke is now trying to be). He felt guilty. It's about time. The two walking hand in hand through campus was a sweet scene with a touch of genius: The a cappella group was singing Bon Jovi's "Living on a Prayer." "We've got each other/And that's a lot for love/We'll give it a shot/Oh, we're halfway there/Oh, we're living on a prayer." Apropos. Even the metal was soft. Though one thing did stop me: Chris was the one who wanted to attend the speech on, what was all that about... astrophysics? (My brain goes blank when any kind of science comes up.) The prof noted that the universe is not slowing down, as scientists initially thought, but is speeding up instead. Now I know I am not ruining anything for anyone when I say this lecture is a metaphor for Chris and Lorelai's relationship. (If you didn't watch the coming attractions, you did see the cover of this week's TV Guide, right?) The reason why, according to the award-winning Ph.D.? Dark energy. Uh-oh. That's not very good news for our smooshy, happy couple. show less
