Rory Gilmore stole our hearts in the sepia-toned series Gilmore Girls. If you're unfamiliar with the series, it's full of mother-daughter relationships, funny moments, and fast talking.
We got to see Rory study her way through high school (and first kisses) and get into Yale. She was best friends with her mom, knew every book ever written, and could banter with the best of them. It's pretty safe to say that if you watched the show, you wanted to be her at some point.
Rory isn't the perfect role model but she had her moments. (She's said 'oy with the poodles already.' You get instant cool status from that.) Love her or hate her, it was pretty much impossible not to adore Rory in these scenes.
The Big Three
We were all rooting for Rory to get into Harvard, but it was pretty sweet when she got "the big envelope" from Harvard, Princeton, AND Yale. Way to go Rory!
She Knew Good Food When She Saw It
One good thing about Rory is that she knew good food when she saw it. She and her mom were practically always either at Luke's, ordering takeout, or getting some late-night ice cream. Her adoration for diner fries is another reason to love her.
