Gilmore Girls: Paris Is Burning

111. Paris Is Burning

Aired January 11, 2001

As her relationship with Max Medina grows more serious, Lorelai starts to panic ahead of Parents' Day at Rory's school.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: Wow. These are beautiful. Huh. I never read Proust. I always wanted to. Every now and then I'm seized with an overwhelming urge to say something like: "As Marcel Proust would say..." But I have no idea what he would say. So I don't even go there. I could do, "As Michael Crichton would say..." but it's not exactly the same.

Quote from Rory

Rory: "L"
Lorelai: Laryngitis. "M"
Rory: Mumps. "N"
Lorelai: Narcolepsy. "O"
Rory: Are we going to have to go through this every time we decide who has to clean the refrigerator?
Lorelai: You wanna go back to thumb wrestling?
Rory: Osteoporosis. "P"
Lorelai: Puppies!
Rory: That's not a disease. Oh, boy!

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: Rory, look at the baby.
Rory: Mom.
Lorelai: "Buttercup was found cold and wet, hovering under a hydrangea bush along Highway 26." It's a sad highway!
Rory: As compared to all the happy highways she could've been abandoned by?
Lorelai: "Her lineage includes cocker spaniel, golden retriever, Bouvier des Flandres"-
Rory: Gesundheit.
Lorelai: Thank you. "And rottweiler."
Rory: "Buttercup is a special dog. She is extremely skittish and tends to react badly toward blond-haired females, brunette males, children of either sex, other animals, red clothing, cabbage, or anyone in uniform."
Lorelai: [to Luke] Hey, we just found the doggy version of you.

Quote from Rory

Lorelai: He loaned me a book.
Rory: What book?
Lorelai: Swann's Way.
Rory: Aren't we ambitious?
Lorelai: Yes, we are.
Rory: You know what it means when a man loans you a book?
Lorelai: That he's already read it?
Rory: Yeah.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: What was that?
Rory: The doorbell rang.
Lorelai: Why did the doorbell ring?
Rory: Because someone's at the door.
Lorelai: It's 8:00. Who shows up at 8:00 for an 8:00 date?
Rory: I don't know. Maybe a Chilton teacher?
Lorelai: Everyone knows that 8:00 means 8:15 tops! Obviously, he was raised in a barn. I tell you, he's cute, but his punctuality has knocked ten points off his dream-guy quotient.

Quote from Rory

Lorelai: Wait, you have to get the door.
Rory: What?
Lorelai: Because I'm not ready.
Rory: I'm not supposed to get the door. Remember? We agreed. I don't get the door when you have a date.
Lorelai: I know, but-
Rory: I'm not even supposed to be here. That's the first rule of the Gilmore Dating Handbook. "Daughter shall be nowhere near house when said man materializes." It's a good rule. It's been working.
Lorelai: He's standing there, it's cold and my slip is now completely stuck in my skirt zipper.
Rory: Mom.
Lorelai: Just this once.

Quote from Rory

Max Medina: How about this, then? We'll come up with non-Chilton names for each other. When we're not in school, I'll call you Rebecca.
Rory: Rebecca.
Max Medina: And you'll call me?
Rory: Norman?
Michel: Norman?
Rory: Sorry?
Max Medina: I look like a Norman to you?
Rory: I'm sorry. Psycho was on earlier, and it was just the first name that came to mind. I'll think of something else. How about Alfred?

Quote from Sookie

Sookie: [beeper sounds] Gotta go.
Rory: Anything wrong?
Sookie: Too much yeast, too little bowl.
Lorelai: Enough said.

Quote from Lorelai

Sookie: How are the feet?
Lorelai: I don't know. They stopped talking to me.
Sookie: What on earth were you thinking?
Lorelai: That I could still skate.
Sookie: It's not like riding a bike, you know.
Lorelai: Now you tell me.
Sookie: So, what are you up to tonight?
Lorelai: Well, I'm gonna do a little line dancing, then run 10 km and then just jump up and down really hard for an hour.

Quote from Rory

Rory: You remember Paris Geller?
Lorelai: Your very best friend in the whole world?
Rory: Her parents are getting a major divorce.
Lorelai: Really?
Rory: Her dad's this bigwig at a huge pharmaceutical company and they're printing all the sordid details about it in the paper.
Lorelai: Ooh, how sordid?
Rory: Well, it's not the Rick James incident but Hugh Grant should be feeling pretty good about himself.
