13 Times You Wished Lorelai Gilmore Was Your Mom

MOM.

There are countless reasons to love "Gilmore Girls," but let's be real, at the top of that list is Lorelai Gilmore.

In part, we were all raised by television's most beloved fictional mom. Lorelai was smart, witty and had an endearing tendency to babble. Most importantly, she always knew what to say -- even if it wasn't what Rory wanted to hear. Sometimes, all you need in life is pizza, junk food and "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," and we know this because of Lorelai.

In honor of the "Gilmore Girls" reunion (gasp) happening at the 2015 ATX Television Festival this Saturday (June 6), we've rounded up all of the times we wished Lorelai was our mom. (Sorry to all of the real moms out there.)

  1. When she ordered Rory to eat junk food and pizza for dinner.
    The WB

    She wouldn't allow it!

  2. When she advised Rory to spend the entire day in her pajamas.
    The WB

    Clearly, that's the best way to get over a breakup. We're pretty sure it's scientifically proven or something.

  3. When she dropped this truth bomb.
    The WB

    Truer words have never been spoken.

  4. When she understood our feelings about Mondays.
    The WB

    Ugh, they're the WORST.

  5. When she dished out this perfect piece of love advice.
    The WB

    You know who has a motorcycle? Jess, probably.

  6. When she came up with this awesome catch phrase.
    The WB

    All we want in life is to be Gilmored.

  7. When she knew how important coffee was to her existence.
    The WB

    Same, girl. Same.

  8. When she admitted her faults because that's what awesome moms do.
    The WB

    At least she knows when she sounds like a crazy person.

  9. When she kept it real with Rory.
    The WB

    It's true. When it comes to Emily Gilmore, you really don't have any control.

  10. When she threw Rory the most awesome birthday party ever.
    The WB

    We're still jealous.

  11. When she had the best response to anything ever.
    The WB

    Oy is right.

  12. When she understood that TV shows were more than just TV.
    The WB

    She just understands us, you know?

  13. When she knew mornings were overrated.
    The WB

    Fact: mornings are terrible.

  14. When she told Rory she was the greatest kid in the world.
    The WB

    And then offered this crucial bit of life advice.

Oh, and then there was that one time I felt personally shaded by Lorelai. I eventually got over it because you can't hold a grudge against mom, fictional or otherwise.
