Question: Thanks for the amazing interview with Lauren Graham. It made me cry, especially the last part when she thanked the fans.

Answer: Keep your tissues handy. Something else I saved from my Lauren Q&A was this morsel about what might've happened next season if the show had returned. "Kelly Bishop said to me, 'If we come back, I think Emily should buy half of the inn, so that we have to work together.' It was such a great idea. Lorelai would have a new level of irritation." Um, I don't know about you, but to me, that sounds like the makings of one kick-ass Broadway show.

And on that note, the final AA of the Gilmore era comes to an end. I'll give you all a moment to compose yourselves. [Moment passes] OK, head on over to the Ask Ausiello Discussion Thread to debate the merits of this week's column; check out the latest installment of my Ausiello Report vodcast for exclusive scoop on a possible Gilmore Girls reunion movie penned by Amy Sherman-Palladino (hey, stranger things have happened in this biz); send questions/tips/condolences to ask_ausiello@tvguide.com; and keep close tabs on the Ausiello Report throughout the week for breaking tube news, blind items and other stuff. And then come back here next week and we'll do it all again!
