‘Bon Voyage’

Season 7, Episode 22 -  Aired May 15, 2007

Rory's family, friends and the townspeople get ready to say good bye as she prepares to leave Stars Hollow for a new job.

Quote from Babette

Kirk: Wait a second, did you just say Rory's graduation party is cancelled?
Lorelai: Oh ho, it's good news. Someone got a job.
Babette: What job?
Rory: I'm gonna be a reporter for an online magazine.
Lorelai: Oh, it's better than that. Se's going to Iowa, and she's gonna be on the campaign bus with Barack Obama. [silence]
Babette: No party at all?


Quote from Kirk

Kirk: I believe I can also be of some help in this area. I'd gladly donate my time and expertise as deejay. Did a little deejay work back in college. Went by the moniker "Captain K."
Lulu: He's really good at scratching.
Babette: Yeah, we've all seen that.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: Plus, I have to go to Sookie and Jackson's to get you that fanny pack.
Rory: Really?
Lorelai: What "really"?
Rory: You honestly think I'm gonna wear a fanny pack?
Lorelai: All I know is, it's on the list, and if it's on the list, I'm getting it for you. You think Tom Brokaw's mother sent him off to his first campaign with no fanny pack?
Rory: When? When in my right mind would I-
Lorelai: Perhaps the senator might like a piece of gum, and no one has any, and then they say, "What about that girl with the lime-green fanny pack?"
Rory: "Lime-green"? I would be "lime-green fanny pack girl."
Lorelai: And they bring you over to him, and he says, "Hello young lady, what is your name?" "My name's Rory Gilmore. Here's your gum." And like that, you're gum buddies with the future president of the United States!

Quote from Lane

Lane: How weird is this? Yesterday, we're sitting on your porch playing jacks and praying to grow boobs, and now look at us. I have a husband and two babies in there, and you're about to go off and conquer the world. Or at least write about it.
Rory: We've come a long way, baby.
Lane: I'll say.

Quote from Rory

Rory: Lane.
Lane: Yeah?
Rory: I just... Your friendship means so much to me. It's so...
Lane: Me, too.
Rory: I mean, I don't know what it's like to have a sister, but I feel like I do, you know?
Lane: Yeah.
Rory: Mrs. Van Gerbig.
Lane: Ms. Gilmore.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: And I got that fanny pack from Jackson. I think you're right, you're never gonna wear it unless you want to be relentlessly teased but the other reporters.
Rory: Not so much.
Lorelai: But who knows? Maybe you should take it. You know, maybe they're teasing reporters who don't have fanny packs. Who knows what the reporter teasing etiquette is these days.

Quote from Lorelai

Taylor Doose: May I have your attention, please? I'd like to welcome you all to this Bon Voyage party in honor of one of Stars Hollow's favorite daughters, Ms. Rory Gilmore! I've known Rory, as have most of you...
Emily: Have you given any thought to my spa idea?
Lorelai: Oh, yeah. I don't think I'm interested, though.
Taylor Doose: ...glorious spring day, pregnant with pride and anticipation, preparing to birth you from our collective womb, fully gestated and nourished. And so we breathe deep, and, with these last, painful contractions, we push you out into the world, spank your bottom, and wipe the amniotic fluid from your eyes as you issue your first independent breath.
Emily: Is this speech making you a little queasy?
Lorelai: A little bit.

Quote from Luke

Lorelai: Hey.
Luke: Hey.
Lorelai: [sighs] Thank you.
Luke: Oh, it's no big deal.
Lorelai: Luke.
Luke: I just like to see you happy. [they kiss]
