Quote from Michel in Eight O'Clock at the Oasis
Lorelai: This is cool.
Michel: Yes, it was a personal purchase.
Lorelai: I want it, what is it?
Michel: An eighteenth century bleeding bowl.
Lorelai: A bleeding bowl?
Michel: When doctors bled patients, the blood had to go somewhere, no?
Lorelai: Okay. Return lamp, pick up Rory, boil right hand.
