Quote from Lorelai in Say Goodnight, Gracie
Emily: [on the phone] May I speak with Rory please?
Lorelai: No, you can't speak with Rory.
Emily: Why not?
Lorelai: Because I called you.
Emily: So what?
Lorelai: You don't get to request a switch when a person calls you.
Emily: I'm sure she's standing right there.
Lorelai: Not the point. If you wanna talk to Rory, you have to call. Then when I answer the phone, you can ask for Rory. But you didn't call, I called, so you cannot ask for Rory.
