Quote from Michel in I'm OK, You're OK
Michel: I see you're making liberal use of my pink neon Post-it notes.
Rory: I'm sorry, Michel. Would you like me to reimburse you for the seven pink neon Post-it notes that I have used? 'Cause I'd be happy to if you can break a penny.
Michel: No, little Lorelai, it's not the cost that is the problem, it's the disruption.
Michel: Of the system.
Rory: I see.
Michel: Do you?
Michel: The pink neon Post-it notes I use for guests who are checking in. The green neon Post-it notes are for guests checking out. And the watermelon Post-it notes are for guests who have altered or canceled their reservations. As you can see, the pink neon stack is now woefully out of balance with the green neon stack, creating the illusion that more guests have been checking in than checking out, which, of course, is a physical impossibility unless we have begun murdering them.
