21 Times Lorelai Gilmore Was Goddamn Inspirational

Let’s get something out in the open, I’m a HUGE Gilmore Girls fanatic. There, I said it! I may or may not have seen every single episode and own all of them on DVD because, well, reasons. Anyway, if you’ve never seen the show, shame on you! Just kidding, but really it’s amazing. Also, it’s on Netflix now so go binge watch it. Not to mention, the show is being relaunched for a final season and we’re losing our minds with excitement.

The two best parts about this show are of course, the dynamic mother-daughter duo Rory and Lorelai. They’re the most lovable and relatable pair of women to ever hit cable. Lorelai, especially was someone that any GG fan looked up to and maybe adopted as a surrogate TV mom (but not in a creepy way). She’s quirky, hilarious, coffee-addicted and an amazing mother to Rory. There are so many phenomenal Lorelai moments to choose from so we narrowed it down to a few of our favorites.
