Gilmore Girls, “Forgiveness and Stuff”
This episode was the first of many Gilmore Christmases, but it holds a special place in our hearts because it's really the start of Lorelei's way back to her family. It's also the first time we see the bond between her and Luke, as he rushes her to Richard's bedside after he collapses. With this one episode, thus begins the most aggressive 'shipping campaign in the history of television. Oh, and there's a Santa-shaped hamburger. So . . . totally worth it.
