Quote from Lorelai in Rory's Dance
Lorelai: So, you should have a decent reason for hating something before you really decide you hate it.
Rory: Trust me, I'll hate it. It'll be stuffy and boring, and the music will suck. And since none of the kids at school like me I'll be standing in the back listening to 98 Degrees watching Tristin and Paris argue over who gets to make me miserable first.
Lorelai: Okay. Or it'll be all sparkly and exciting. You'll be on the dance floor listening to Tom Waits with some great-looking guy staring at you so hard you don't realize that Paris and Tristin have just been eaten by bears.
Rory: What guy?
Lorelai: I don't know. Maybe the guy who hangs out in our trees all day waiting for you.
Rory: Dean does not hang out in trees.
Lorelai: He bashed his head in a branch last week when I came out of the house too quickly.
