Top 15 Life Changing Moments of Gilmore Girls

By Ashley Houk,

Gilmore Girls brought mothers and daughters together for seven seasons with hopes of the perfect relationship. But, a lot of other things happened—outside of the mother-daughter relationship. Built of a cast of excellent actors creating realistic, compelling, and complex relationships Gilmore Girls will always be close to my heart, even though it’s been off the air for nearly five years. In those seven seasons, tons of things happened to all the citizens of Stars Hollow and surrounding areas. Here are a little more than just a few of some of the most memorable moments.

15. Jackson proposes to Sookie. After suggesting he move in, Sookie doesn't really answer and when she finally agrees, Jackson says he doesn't want to move in!

14. Rory goes on the Obama campaign trail. First grown-up job a real reporter.

13. Lorelai graduates from college. Rory isn't there to play buffer between her mom and Emily because she went to NY to see Jess.

12. Christopher leaves Lorelai at Sookie's wedding. And ruins what we all thought was meant to be.
