Question: In terms of days, weeks, months, etc., how long were Lorelai and Christopher married in season seven?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Lorelai and Christopher get married impulsively in Paris but they get divorced shortly after returning home. I don't know the exact number of days or weeks but they definitely weren't married for more than a couple of months.

Happy Birthday, Baby - S3-E18

Question: During the opening credits of this episode Dean is shown as being in this episode but he was not actually shown. Is there a reason why he was shown in the credits for this episode even though he was not in it?

Jenzzyuk

Chosen answer: So long as Dean was a regular on the show, whether he appeared in a particular episode or not, he was featured in the opening credits' montage. Once the character was phased out, they stopped showing him in the opening.

Question: Does Lane live with both her parents? I've heard her talk about "parents" in plural but I've never seen her father, nor heard anyone talk about him. Anyone who knows?

Question: I know Rory and Gigi are half-sisters, but out of curiosity, what relationships would be required to make them step-sisters?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Half sisters (or brothers) share either a mother or a father, but not both. Step sisters mean there is no blood relationship at all and one's mother and the other's father got married to each other.

Question: What is the DAR that Emily always talks about?

Answer: Daughters of the American Revolution is an organization for women. Part of the membership requirements is that you have to prove that one of your ancestors was a "Patriot of the American Revolution", i.e. in America back in the 1770's and working on the American side. Stereotypically (not true but assumed), the membership are upper-class snobs like Emily.

Trivia: In some episodes, Rory speaks Spanish (e.g when she is talking to her grandmother's maid). She speaks very poorly, typical "school-Spanish". This is just acting; Spanish is actually Alexis Bledel's first language. Her mother is from Mexico and her father is from Argentina.
