Luke Danes and Lorelai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)
As Brooklyn Nine Nine’s Rosa Diaz once said “I just want Lorelai to be happy!” While Gilmore Girls has done the best job of showcasing the incomparable bond between mother and daughter, it’s also done wonderful work with the foreseen relationship between Luke Danes and Lorelai Gilmore. We may all have different teams when it comes to Rory’s relationship, but we almost feel certain that the majority of viewers shipped Luke and Lorelai like FedEx (what did we even call it back then?) When they first made an appearance on screen together, you just knew you wanted them together. It’d happen someday and it’d be beautiful because it was meant to be from the very start. Let’s be real, who doesn’t want to have a diner they go to everyday with a good looking “friend” who owns the place? And who doesn’t want to fall in love with the particular friend that’s always been there to offer a helping hand, coffee, and love. Luke and Lorelai are like coffee and bagels — a perfect combination that makes everything better. And that’s exactly what they did, they made each other and the situations they were in better.
