Rory Quote #671
Rory: I'm sure he panicked. I'm sure his not telling you says nothing about your relationship. Maybe this is a cheesy perspective to offer you, but Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale went through the same sort of situation. He found out he had a kid that he didn't know about, but they made it work as far as I know.
Rory: If they can, you can.
Rory: They're people. You're people. I mean, you don't sing and neither does Luke. But really, neither do Gwen or Gavin, but they're still together I think. I haven't read anything to the contrary.
Lorelai: I guess.
Rory: You and Luke just need to talk some more.
Lorelai: Yeah. Maybe I'll tell Luke about Gwen and Gavin. I mean, if there's any people whose lives Luke would relate to, it's Gwen and Gavin.
Quote from Kirk
Lorelai: Kirk, I promise this booth will be a big hit. It will not embarrass you, okay? I promise.
Kirk: Your promise means nothing to me. You break them all the time.
Lorelai: [gasps] I do not.
Kirk: 1997, you promised to bring me back a souvenir pen and ink set from your trip to colonial Williamsburg.
Lorelai: I did?
Kirk: 1999, you promised to put in a good word for me at Al's Pancake World when Al had that batter boy opening.
Lorelai: He calls them "batter boys"?
Kirk: Year 2000, you promised to teach me to swim. I still don't know how to swim. What if there's a tsunami?
Kirk: 2001, you promised to come to my birthday party, and I waited and waited...
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: I've gotten so much done this morning, it's scary.
Lorelai: I already got some. I saw the sunrise. I paid all my bills. [Luke pours coffee] I already got some, hon. And this is a first: I saw the beginning of Katie Couric. I don't think I've seen the first five minutes of her in my life. You know, she and Matt Lauer are much more serious in the first half-hour than they are later on. I guess that makes sense. You know, you can afford to make people sad and angry about war and the economy and stuff when they first wake up. But then, just as they're heading to the office, you leave them with a dose of Matthew McConaughey, People's sexiest man, and they're rarin' to go.
Luke: [yawns] Yeah, Matthew McConaughey always gets me rarin'.
Quote from Lorelai's First Cotillion
Lorelai: I don't want the whole night to be about Luke.
Rory: It won't be. Don't worry. Just put it out there, and then when they attack you, whatever angle they're coming from, I will deflect.
Lorelai: How will you deflect?
Rory: Well, I don't know. Maybe I will talk about Bangalore.
Lorelai: You know a lot about Bangalore?
Rory: Don't you? Bangalore? Outsourcing? You know, when you call customer service, you're almost always talking to some nice dude in India who speaks perfect English. Don't you read Time magazine?
Lorelai: It doesn't seem like a rich subject area.
Quote from The Perfect Dress
Rory: Oh, no! Oh, no! Oh, no! I accidentally forgot to turn in my community-service vest.
Rory: So this vest belongs to the state. I have now stolen state property. They're gonna give me community service for stealing my community-service vest.
