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 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 Paris
Paris: You check in?
Rory: Check in?
Paris: The board. The new system? This is the best way for me to know where anyone is at any given time. All the names are on the left. Each colored magnet represents an activity. If you're out on assignment, it's a red magnet. If you're in the John, it's a blue magnet. If you're at home, a purple magnet. If you're at your desk, it's a green magnet.
Rory: But if they're at their desk, you can just glance over and see that they're at their desk.
Paris: But I'd have to glance all around. This saves extraneous glancing. Look, it's not really for people like you. I know you're dedicated. I trust you, but I can't appear to be playing favorites.
Rory: I have a class.
Paris: Orange magnet.
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 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.
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.
Rory: And, already, you are way ahead of a lot of people as far as parenting skills go. Like Britney. Britney Spears does not know which end of a baby goes up. And Courtney Love? She's no June Cleaver.
Lane: Yeah, I bet I could be a better mother than Courtney Love.
Rory: My sock drawer could be a better mother than Courtney Love. But, yes, of course you would be. And Michael Jackson. You know not to name a child "Blanket."
Lane: I do know that. Do not name your baby after an inanimate object.
Rory: See? Way ahead of the pack.
Lane: Yeah. Hey I wonder if Blanket ever met Tom and Katie's baby, Pillow.
Rory: Yeah, that would be a perfect playdate.
Lane: Yeah, when it's nap time, they would be totally set.
Rory: And then they could invite Gwyneth's Apple over afterward for a little snack.
Lane: Banjo, Rachel Griffiths' baby, could play for them.
Rory: And then they could all jump in Mia Farrow's Satchel and make fun of, uh... what's his face?
Lane: Oh, Pilot Inspektor Lee.
Rory: Yeah. [both chuckle]
