She and Rory have regular food-and-movie nights, during which they buy enough junk food for several people and proceed to eat most of it.
The only time Lorelai desired fruit and vegetables was when she was pregnant with Rory.
Christopher was amenable, but Lorelai knew they weren't ready.
Lorelai is known for being stronger and more independent than Christopher; when she realized she was in labor, she drove herself to the hospital despite not having a driver's license.
Her life growing up was complicated due to an overbearing, neurotic mother and a workaholic father, who both expected Lorelai to live in their world of privilege.
Lorelai's parents agree to pay their granddaughter's tuition on one condition: Both Lorelai and Rory must attend Friday night dinners every week.
Lorelai reluctantly agrees and a tiny sliver of hope for a relationship with her parents begins.
After an agonizing delivery, Lorelai Leigh Gilmore was born.
She lived with her parents for a year before running away to find a job at the Independence Inn in Stars Hollow.
She left a note addressed to her parents and then headed to the hospital.
