Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: Basically, everything here is chicken. You've got garlic chicken, Kung Pao chicken, Szechwan chicken, chicken in brown sauce, which looks and tastes remarkably like the Szechwan chicken except it's got these red peppers in it, and if you eat them, you die.

Quote from Luke

Luke: [on the phone] I promised the woman I'd give her an answer today.
Lorelai: Okay, give me the address.
Luke: 62 1/2 B Street. And that's another thing, what's with this "half" business? Why do all these apartments have this "half" thing going? It's stupid. If 62 is taken, move on to 63.
Lorelai: Luke, I'll meet you there in 20-and-a-half minutes.

Quote from Michel

Lorelai: Michel, I have to go out for a little while. Cover the desk for me.
Michel: Hmm.
Lorelai: What?
Michel: I mean, I'll say I'll cover the desk but how will you know if I'm actually doing it?
Lorelai: Michel, I trust you.
Michel: It's just as possible I say I'll cover the desk and the moment you stepped away, I'll put some fruit on my head and join a conga line somewhere.
Lorelai: I believe you looked for the bracelet.
Michel: And while I am shaking it to the Miami Sound Machine the phones here, they would ring and ring, and no one to answer, no one to assist.
Lorelai: Okay. Bye.

Quote from Lorelai

Mary: Now, I went over the square footage and the details of the lease with your husband this morning. Did he fill you in?
Luke: What? No-
Lorelai: He didn't, but you know how men are. The minute that ball game comes on, all the realities of life just go right out the window.
Mary: Don't I know it.
Lorelai: I mean, I could answer the door wrapped in cellophane but unless I was wearing a Yankees cap, he wouldn't even notice.
Luke: Jeez.
Lorelai: Well, don't be embarrassed, snuffy. I'm just teasing. It'd be a Mets cap.

Quote from Luke

Lorelai: You need to do this. You and Jess will kill each other in your place.
Luke: But who knows how long he's gonna be here?
Lorelai: Why? Did something happen?
Luke: No, but you never know.
Lorelai: No, you don't. But I think his mom sending his stuff is a pretty good sign.
Luke: And even if he does stay, it'll only be for another year and then he'll go off to college or Attica or whatever, and it'll just be me again.
Lorelai: Yeah, but...
Luke: I'll be stuck in a new apartment, probably with neighbors I hate, who are probably constantly cooking really strong-smelling food.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: Okay, back up here. Yes, Jess may go off somewhere someday but that doesn't mean you will be alone forever.
Luke: I am not getting a pet.
Lorelai: I'm talking about a lady friend. A red-hot mama.
Luke: Okay.
Lorelai: A big, pretty dish of loving with a spoon made especially for you.
Luke: Boy, do I not feel good now.
Lorelai: Luke, RacheI's not the only woman in the world for you. You'll meet someone someday, probably at a Timberland store. You'll ask her out, you'll pick her up take her on a patented "Luke Danes night of romance". Juice bar, then the batting cages and then you'll ask her back to your apartment.
Luke: Any amount of money if you stop now.
Lorelai: You'll bring her back to your place, lead her upstairs to the apartment door. You pause, gaze into her eyes. The stage is set. Fate is waiting. You open the door, and she sees your teeny, tiny apartment, one room and no closet space, and Jess' feet sticking up in the air 'cause you never got rid of the body.
Luke: Stop, please.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: And to make matters worse, she spots it... the single bed!
Luke: What's wrong with the single bed?
Lorelai: You know what they say.
Luke: No, what do they say?
Lorelai: Never, ever date a guy who owns a single bed. It means he's not open to commitment.
Luke: What?
Lorelai: It says, "There's no room in this life for anyone but me."
Luke: No, it says, "There's no room in this bed for anybody else."
Lorelai: See, that's not much better.
Luke: This discussion is over.
Lorelai: Luke, come on, as long as you're in that apartment, you're going to have a single bed. Don't you want the possibility of more? Come on, Luke, it's time. Make a move, take a shot. Entertain the possibility of a non-Unabomber existence.

Quote from Jess

Lorelai: Did you get lost?
Jess: No, I was looking at Rory's books.
Lorelai: Uh-huh.
Jess: I wanted to see if she had Franny and Zooey. She does.
Lorelai: Okay.
Jess: I was gonna get it for her if she didn't.
Lorelai: That's very nice of you.
Jess: Yeah. [silence] Okay, so, I should probably get back to work.

Quote from Jess

Lorelai: You took it, didn't you?
Jess: Excuse me?
Lorelai: Rory's bracelet. You had it the whole time.
Jess: No idea what you're talking about.
Lorelai: How'd you get it?
Jess: I didn't get anything.
Lorelai: What, did you break into our house? You got all dressed in black, and pulled a Mission: Impossible?
Jess: Actually, I came down the chimney and pulled a Santa Claus.
Lorelai: Very funny.
Jess: I thought a ridiculous accusation deserved such a response.

Quote from Luke

Luke: I just spent $100,000, and it's all your fault!
Lorelai: Oh, good.
Luke: I ran into Taylor at the market. I found out he owns the building that apartment was in.
Lorelai: No way.
Luke: That and several others all over town.
Lorelai: So weird.
Luke: He's systematically buying up the town. He's going to turn it into Taylorville, where everyone wears cardigans and have the same grass height.
