Ology.com put together a Valentine’s Day list celebrating the Best and Worst First Dates on TV, including first and foremost as “best” the first date between Luke & Lorelai:
After seven years of friendship (and a couple near misses), grumpy diner owner Luke and chatty Lorelai finally go out on a date. But considering the foundation these two have built up, it’s no surprise that this isn’t a casual date: Luke reveals that he’s kept a horoscope that Lorelai jokingly wrote down for him–”You will meet an annoying woman today. Give her coffee and she will go away.”–in his wallet for seven years. “I’m all in,” he tells her seriously. Seeing as the date ends at his apartment, obviously things go well. Then, in true Gilmore fashion, the whole town finds out and takes sides in the event of a Luke/Lorelai break-up. Still, they mean well, and we were so delighted to see these crazy kids finally make it work.
“I’m all in.” So classic. So amazing.
