Lorelai and Rory end up invited to four Thanksgiving dinners: Mrs. Kim's, Sookie's, Luke's, and finally Emily and Richard's.

Quote from Lane

Lane: Excellent Thanksgiving, Mama.
Mrs. Kim: I think people had fun.
Lane: And it was nice of you to only charge half price on the chair that Yung Hee broke.
Mrs. Kim: That was my cost.
Lane: That why it was nice.


Quote from Lane

Lane: Oh, Mama, look. Dave's bible. He forgot it. He's gonna need this, too. I'll run it out to him.
Mrs. Kim: Wait.
Lane: We're gonna miss him.
Mrs. Kim: Let me see that. "This bible belongs to God, but is being used by Dave Rygalski." Go on.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: See, my head knows that whichever one of these places you go, Harvard, Princeton, Yale... it's gonna be great. It's gonna be awesome, and you're gonna come out on the other side an even more amazing you. But I just wish my head could sit down and have a chat with that gnawing feeling in my gut that's there every time my parents get involved in anything and tell it, it's gonna be okay.
Rory: It's gonna be okay.
Lorelai: Nice try.

Quote from Rory

Lorelai: Who's that?
Rory: It's Lane. It just says "bible kiss bible".
Lorelai: What does that mean?
Rory: I have no idea. Good band name, though.

Quote from Luke

Jess: Get more trash cans.
Luke: I don't need more.
Jess: You make me run around town for a place to dump this.
Luke: Just dump it in one of Taylor's bins. It gets it out of here and it'll drive Taylor crazy. It's a win-win.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: Hi, guys.
Luke: We're out of food.
Lorelai: Oh, please, we're not eating for a year.
Rory: Or 'til tomorrow morning.
Lorelai: Whichever comes first.

Quote from Dean

Dean: But now's your chance, there's no one else around.
Jess: Go home. Cool off.
Dean: Come on, make one of your Boy Scout references, or a good Farmer John joke. I got my Doose's Market apron with me, you want me to put it on, give you a little inspiration? I don't get it, what happened, you suddenly like me now?
Jess: Oh yeah, I was just about to invite you camping.
Dean: Good, okay, now we're getting somewhere.
Jess: I'm not gonna fight you, Dean.
Dean: Why?
Jess: 'Cause if I fight you, Rory's gonna think it's my fault, so just forget it, okay? Just forget it. Go home. Let it rest.
Dean: So Rory's got a nice little hold on you now, huh?
Jess: Geez.
Dean: Don't do that. How does it feel?
Jess: It feels like I'm with Rory and you're not.
Dean: You know, when all this happened with you and me and Rory, I figured I'd just stay out of everyone's way, that that would be easiest. But now, I'm looking at you and I'm thinking, I'm gonna run from him? The Glad Man. This is my town, I'm not hiding. And I don't have be remotely calm around you anymore, and I like that feeling. I like it a lot. Happy Thanksgiving, Jess.

Quote from Lorelai

Luke: So, how did the four dinners work out? You guys must feel more stuffed than you've ever been.
Lorelai: I don't know. Is this more stuffed than the great Six Flags hot dog consumption of '99?
Rory: No, or the taffy binge of '97.
Lorelai: Not by a long shot.
