    And this face when she told Rory about it.

    4. Because when they were repainting the diner and crawling around behind the counter you were screaming at the TV, "KISS ALREADY!"

    Sureeee Luke, you just wanted to show her your father's notes on the side of the counter... we'll go with that.

    5. Because a first kiss this perfect should NEVER have to end...

    "Will you just stand still?"

    ...and neither should a first date this perfect, for that matter.

    6. Because Luke was always a pseudo-dad to Rory.

    7. Because they toasted their engagement with chick beer.
