Quote from Lorelai in Let the Games Begin

Emily: What on earth does Frank Lloyd Wright have to do with my salad?
Richard: And your walnuts.
Lorelai: Mrs. Wright apparently had this major problem with her help. She was very rough on them and they totally hated her. So this guy who had worked for her forever, he had finally had enough. I believe the incident was over walnuts, wasn't it, honey?
Rory: The exact cause has not been proven.
Lorelai: Anyhow, Mrs. Wright invites this whole posse of people over for dinner and they're all sitting around eating, and Mr. Disgruntled Servant Guy goes outside and locks all the doors and windows and douses the whole house in gasoline and sets the place on fire.
Emily: My goodness.
Lorelai: So the house is on fire, and people are freaking out, so they run to the doors but the doors are locked, so a few of them try to get out through the windows, but Mr. Angry-Puss is standing outside with an ax hacking them to death and so they all died.
Emily: Why on earth would you tell me that story?
Lorelai: All I'm saying is, sometimes eating a walnut is preferable to getting hacked to death or set on fire during dinner.
Emily: One of these days I'm going to make you eat in your room.

Quote from Emily in Driving Miss Gilmore

Lorelai: Here we go.
Emily: What is this?
Lorelai: This is my car.
Emily: We can't go in this. We have to take the other car.
Lorelai: What other car? No, Mom, that's not a car. That's a rap-video set.
Emily: I ordered it specially. It has the darkest windows available. They say it's the car Jay-Z uses when he's in town. I assume that's an entertainer of some sort. The windows are bulletproof. They kept saying that as if it's a selling point. I told them I was not paying extra for bulletproof windows. I haven't been strafed in years.

Quote from Rory in Just Like Gwen and Gavin

Rory: I'm sure he panicked. I'm sure his not telling you says nothing about your relationship. Maybe this is a cheesy perspective to offer you, but Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale went through the same sort of situation. He found out he had a kid that he didn't know about, but they made it work as far as I know.
Lorelai: Meaning?
Rory: If they can, you can.
Lorelai: Really?
Rory: They're people. You're people. I mean, you don't sing and neither does Luke. But really, neither do Gwen or Gavin, but they're still together I think. I haven't read anything to the contrary.
Lorelai: I guess.
Rory: You and Luke just need to talk some more.
Lorelai: Yeah. Maybe I'll tell Luke about Gwen and Gavin. I mean, if there's any people whose lives Luke would relate to, it's Gwen and Gavin.

Quote from Luke in P.S. I Lo...

Luke: It's Rachel's birthday. Don't say anything. She doesn't want anyone to know. She hates birthdays.
Lorelai: Not as much as she'll hate the potholders.
Luke: I don't know how to buy gifts. I don't like to buy gifts. I don't like getting gifts. I mean, this whole gift-giving-and-getting process is completely insane.
Lorelai: The rant begins.
Luke: I mean, suddenly, on a certain date the level of my affection for a person isn't measured by the way I treat them or what we share. [Lorelai yawns] Just because I didn't buy her furry slippers or a giant shoetree... all of a sudden, I suck.

Quote from Rory in The Road Trip to Harvard

Lorelai: "This building is one component of a 13 million-volume collection housed in more than 90 different libraries. It's the oldest library in the US, and the largest academic library in the world." Breathe, breathe.
Rory: I am a failure.
Lorelai: What?
Rory: I am stupid.
Lorelai: Stop.
Rory: I am uninformed, ignorant, and I can't even think of a second synonym for 'uninformed'. I suck.
Lorelai: Honey.
Rory: Thirteen million volumes? I've read 300 books in my entire life, and I'm already 16? You know how long I would need to read 13 million books?
Lorelai: But honey, you don't have to read every one of them. Tuesdays With Morrie. Skip that. Who Moved My Cheese?? Stuff you already know.
Rory: But every kid coming to Harvard is inevitably reading books. And Different books. And I want to be able to converse intelligently with each of them. And I can't do that unless I read books. At least a few from every genre and subgenre.

Quote from Lorelai in So... Good Talk

Lorelai: [on the phone] Let's see how her trip has been since the last card. "Dear Lorelai, kicked a dog then punched a gypsy in the groin. Oh, that's nice."
Rory: Mom.
Lorelai: "Complained about the foie gras to a waiter whose yearly pay is less than I spend monthly on silver polish, then kicked another dog."
Rory: Come on.
Lorelai: "Tripped a nun, then burned down an orphanage."
Rory: Sounds like a busy itinerary.
Lorelai: And the sun sets on Apollo. [rips up post card]
