Don't bother trying to connect the dots when she speaks. Just try your best to follow along or you might miss a gem like this.

And she's not afraid to go after it. 

She's a wonderful listener.

After raising Rory, taking business classes, and getting the applicable experience, she and her best friend successfully started their own Inn. 

Her taste in film and television is on point. 

This is a woman with all of Cop Rock on tape, and has seen the Sophia Dying Scene in The Godfather Part 3 more times than any other human being, ever, except maybe Rory. 

Her music tastes are incredible as well. 

She's always ready to drop her favorite lyrics, or pick up and go see The Bangles in New York.
