Quote from Lorelai in Friday Night's Alright for Fighting
Lorelai: Once upon a time, there was a big house with thick glass windows and heavy stone walls and a slightly pornographic fountain in the driveway. And all the animals in the forest were scared of the house 'cause they thought that the house was haunted, and so did all the villagers in the small hamlet of Hartfordshireville. "Maids go in, but they never come out," they would whisper on the street. How are we doing?
Rory: Keep going.
Lorelai: One day, a beautiful, young cowherderess walked by the house.
Lorelai: Hey, we could just go in, you know?
Rory: Cowherderess is walking by.
Lorelai: And suddenly she felt the unbearable need for a strand of pearls and a snifter of 100-year-old scotch. So, abandoning her cows, she climbed over the high walls and dropped onto the just-redone tiled walkway and rushed toward the enchanted French doors that the queen had never been happy with because the hardware was not what she had picked, and she refused to pay that idiot designer that she hired off of a recommendation, and-- Okay, seriously, this didn't work when you were 4. I am not sure why you thought it would do any good now. [sighs] It's gonna be fine.
