I am obsessed with the new Gilmore Girls revival, and it hasn’t even finished filming yet.
I am so obsessed, in fact, that I decided I really wanted to write my own version of how I saw the GG mini-movie happening as part of my Camp NaNoWriMo project. I came to this decision a bit on my own, and a bit from the encouragement of my friends who said they wanted to see my take on the script.
So, here’s a teeny tiny peek at what I’ve been writing so far:
SCENE: INTERIOR STARS HOLLOW / INTERIOR NEWSPAPER OFFICE. LORELAI and RORY are both on their cell phones.
LORELAI: Wait, wait, one more thing. Next time you talk to Barack and Michelle, find out if they can get me Hamilton tickets.
RORY: Mom, I am not on a first-name basis with them, and if I was, that’s really not the first thing I would ask them.
LORELAI: Why not? Ask for two tickets; we can go together.
RORY: Okay, after I file this report I’ll run into the Oval Office and see what I can do.
LORELAI: That’s my girl.
RORY: I’m not really going to do that.
LORELAI: Fine, fine. What time will I see you at dinner?
RORY: Um, a little late. I have a friend in town I said I’d meet for drinks first.
LORELAI: Really? Who?
RORY : Oh, just someone from back at Yale. Shouldn’t be too long.
LORELAI: Do NOT leave me alone with her.
RORY: I’ll be there, I promise.
CUT TO: Inside of an upscale New York bar. RORY sits at a table, looking anxiously around the room. She stops and smiles. Camera pans to the door, where LOGAN HUNSTBERGER is standing. He approaches the table and she stands to greet him.
LOGAN: Hey, Ace.
RORY: No one has called me that in years.
LOGAN: That’s because I haven’t SEEN you in years.
RORY: Because you’re always too busy when you come to the city.
LOGAN: No, because you’re always jetting between here and DC.
RORY: What can I say? I’m a woman in high demand.
LOGAN: I bet.
…and that’s all you get for now.
