Plot Overview

Rory is accpeted into the elite Chilton prep school. Bad news for Lorelai: she must make amends with her parents to borrow the money for Rory's tuition. The money is available -- with strings attached.

Rory is accepted into the prestigious Chilton, but their insistence on a large up-front payment leaves Lorelai flustered and out of options. She is forced to ask her wealthy parents, Richard and Emily Gilmore, for a loan in order to get Rory in. The elder Gilmores happily agree, but not without adding their own requirements to the deal: Rory and Lorelai must attend dinner with them every Friday night and agree to end the estrangement.

While Lorelai is relieved to have negotiated a solution to the problem, Rory complicates the situation by meeting a new student, Dean, at Stars Hollow High School, and has second thoughts about attending Chilton. An argument ensues, with Lorelai unable to believe that Rory would throw her future away over a boy she just met, but Rory relents after the first Friday-night dinner, as she comes to realise just how great a sacrifice her mother has made for her.
