Mother Lorelai (Lauren Graham) was born to privilege, but saw her education cut short by a Teen Pregnancy.Despite pressure from her parents Emily (Kelly Bishop) and Richard (Edward Herrmann), and a proposal from the erstwhile father Christopher (David Sutcliffe), the 16-year-old Lorelai chose to strike out on her own, moving to Stars Hollow, CT as a single mother.Daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel), despite having been born in comparative poverty, is a gifted student.
A physically unprepossessing child, short and skinny with sticking out ears and a beaky nose, Lionel compensated by entertaining his fellow urchins with his quick wit, making up rude lyrics to well-known songs.
When Lionel was six, his headmistress told his parents that their son was an ‘artistic genius’.
Emily and Richard agree to finance their granddaughter's education, but only at the cost of Friday-night family dinners.
The result is a mother-daughter drama, contrasting the Different as Night and Day relationship between Lorelai and Emily with the Heterosexual Life Partnership of Lorelai and Rory.
