Goofs

While interviewing Lorelai's doctor he said that he hadn't examined her in three years and that he called in a prescription for methadone to her pharmacy, here he violated at least one, possibly two regulations for prescribing controlled substances. Since methadone is a schedule II controlled substance a pharmacy cannot dispense it without having the original hard copy of the prescription, a doctor can't just call in a verbal prescription, or fax one, like with drugs in lower schedules. However a doctor is allowed to call in a verbal prescription, or fax a copy of the original prescription for a schedule II drug to the pharmacy so that they may prepare the prescription ahead of time and have it ready for pickup by the time the patient arrives at the pharmacy, however they would have to get the original hard copy of the prescription from the patient at that time before being allowed to dispense the medication. It is possible this is what Lorelai's doctor did since she was very impatient and seems to be the kind of person would would balk at having to wait at the pharmacy for the prescription to be filled. However he did violate regulations for sure when he wrote Lorelai a prescription for a schedule II controlled substance without examining her. DEA regulations state that a doctor cannot issue a prescription for a schedule II controlled substance if it has been more than 90 days since they last examined the patient, and they cannot issue new prescriptions for schedule III, IV & V controlled substances if it has been more than 180 days since their last examination.

I'm a BAD! Bad boy
28 September 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

Justin (Michael Ellison) is a teenager son of former stripper, now billionaire and part time actress Lorelai. She inherited the money from her deceased husband four time older than her. She's just given birth to a daughter when his son suddenly dies during a party broadcast in TV live show. Producer and party goers were brought in for questioning but later released for lacking of evidence. The actress manager and former taxi driver Ronnie (David Cross) along with her sister Jolene drew detectives attention after Lorelei died as well as her sick dog. Who's the murderer?

This remind me Anne Nicole Smith life, ended up tragically shortly before this episode was aired, with the same drug abuse, excessive exposure to media and morbid relationship mother-son. An episode not so enjoyable.
