Quote from Emily in Rory's Dance
Emily: The owls are endangered, and Chilton is taking donations to help them. You gave a very nice one, in case you're interested.
Lorelai: Mom, don't be giving donations on Rory's behalf. I'll do that.
Emily: How can you when you don't read the newsletter?
Lorelai: I read the newspaper.
Emily: You didn't know they were taking donations.
Lorelai: It's a private school. They're always taking donations. I'll get them next time.
Emily: Well, what about the owls?
Lorelai: They'll live.
Emily: Apparently they won't, dear. That's why they need the donations in the first place.
