While we still have a little longer to wait until Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres on Netflix on Nov. 25, the first page of the script just confirmed that it will definitely be worth the wait. Entertainment Weekly got their hands on the sneak peek, and it’s giving us faith that this reboot will do the original justice.
In the opening scene, Rory greets Lorelai after getting off a seven-hour flight (could she have been abroad?) and the beloved mother-daughter duo immediately returns to their friendly, quick-witted banter. “That’s how you look when you get off a plane?” Lorelai says, annoyed.
“You should look drawn and blotchy. You should be singing ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ with a bad haircut while selling yourself to French dockworkers. Instead, you look perfect. Admit it. You’ve been Goop’d,” she jokes, referencing Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand.
“I have not been Goop’d,” Rory responds. “You do yoga in the aisles wearing cashmere sweatpants while your comfort dog watches ‘Zoolander’ on his watch,” her mom quips.
Lauren Graham told EW that the Goop joke gave her faith in the script from the very first page. “I just felt like that’s so quintessentially [show creator] Amy and Lorelai,” she said. “It was then that I was like, ‘We’re going to be okay.’”
