Gilmore Girls: Like Mother, Like Daughter

207. Like Mother, Like Daughter

Aired November 13, 2001

Rory is told by the headmaster and guidance counselor at Chilton that she needs to be more social.

Quote from Rory

Lorelai: Take your schoolbooks and leave the others.
Rory: I need all of my other books.
Lorelai: You don't need all these.
Rory: I think I do.
Lorelai: Edna St. Vincent Millay?
Rory: That's my bus book.
Lorelai: Uh-huh. What's the Faulkner?
Rory: My other bus book.
Lorelai: So just take one bus book.
Rory: No, the Millay is a biography. And sometimes on the bus, when I pull out a biography and I think to myself, "Well, I don't feel like reading about a person's life right now" then I'll switch to the novel. And sometimes if I'm not into the novel, I'll switch back.

Quote from Lorelai

Rory: Barry Manilow.
Lorelai: Ugh, stop.
Rory: [sings] Looks like we made it-
Lorelai: Oh, yeah? Spice Girls.
Rory: Duran Duran.
Lorelai: Dido.
Rory: Olivia Newton-John.
Lorelai: The Macarena. You and Lane for hours and hours, for weeks on end.
Rory: Hey, ye were mocking. You can't mock the mocking.
Lorelai: All right, this is getting ugly.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: Wow. Busy today. Has Luke been advertising or something?
Rory: He gets good word of mouth.
Lorelai: Well, we have to start spreading bad word of mouth so we can always have a table.
Rory: Well, that would be wrong, but sure. Vermin?
Lorelai: Or no potable water.
Rory: Or no potable vermin.
Lorelai: That'd scare them away.
Rory: Or confuse them away.

Quote from Rory

Rory: I found a CD under the front seat of our car. Did you lose one?
Lorelai: Not that I know of, but I'm sloppy with them.
Rory: So you didn't hide it?
Lorelai: Why would I hide a CD?
Rory: Don't know. Bay City Rollers?
Lorelai: It's not a Bay City Rollers CD.
Rory: How do you know?
Lorelai: I know what's not hidden under the seat.
Rory: Ha! Because you know that Barry Manilow is under that seat.

Quote from Lorelai

Luke: Where's Barry Manilow?
Rory: Under Mom's seat.
Lorelai: All right, I confess I was hiding Barry Manilow.
Rory: You confess?
Lorelai: But he was very big when I was very small. Plus, it's the live version where he does a medley of his commercial jingles.
Rory: Don't worry. Everyone's allowed a guilty pleasure now again.
Lorelai: Hmm. Very diplomatic from the girl who had the Bryan Adams poster above her bed for two years.
Rory: Fink.

Quote from Rory

Lorelai: What is the Gore Vidal?
Rory: Oh, that's my lunch book.
Lorelai: Uh-huh. So lose the Vidal or the Faulkner. You don't need two novels.
Rory: Vidal is essays.
Lorelai: Uh-huh. But the Eudora Welty's not essays or biography.
Rory: Right.
Lorelai: So, it's another novel. Lose it.
Rory: Nuh-uh. It's short stories.
Lorelai: Ugh, this is a sickness.

Quote from Michel

Lorelai: [on the phone] Michel?
Michel: I am growing very old.
Lorelai: Come pick me up?
Michel: I'm already here.
Lorelai: Put Carol on the desk and pick me up.
Michel: I'm not speaking to Carol. She ate my low-fat cheese.
Lorelai: Michel, come pick me up and I will buy you some cheese.
Michel: Low-fat cheese.
Lorelai: Low-fat cheese.
Michel: Low-fat American cheese.
Lorelai: Low-fat American cheese.
Michel: And a meringue cookie.
Lorelai: Just get over here.
Michel: Fine.

Quote from Lorelai

Mrs. Burdiness: Don't worry about being late for your next class. I'll write you a note if you want.
Rory: Okay.
Mrs. Burdiness: I know from your records you're a stickler for punctuality.
Lorelai: I am a stickler, yes. I only slipped one time last year. I hit a deer. Actually, he hit me. Or she did. Or not me, my car. But, um, then he or she ran away, and I think it turned out okay. I didn't see it again, so I can't definitively say. But I did look for him or her. [sighs] It's a big story for me. I'm surprised I don't tell it better.

Quote from Rory

Lorelai: He pulled out a file and told me I was a bad Chilton Mom.
Rory: He did not.
Lorelai: I don't participate in school activities.
Rory: Well, you work.
Lorelai: And I don't make posters.
Rory: You have no artistic capabilities.
Lorelai: I don't chaperon school dances.
Rory: Does he know you got pregnant at 16?

Quote from Rory

Rory: God! You're like a pop-up book from hell.
Paris: You were sitting with the Puffs. How did you do it?
Rory: The who?
Paris: The Puffs. The Chilton Puffs. You were at their table and I want to know how.
Rory: I don't know. I just sat down.
Paris: Nobody just sits down with them. You have to be invited.
Rory: Paris, it's not the Costa Nostra.
