Lorelai Quote #2289
Lorelai: I forgot how much fun it could be just to put makeup on. It's become so pragmatic, such drudgery. It's like all we use it for now is to look better.
Sookie: And why would the two of us ever need to look better?
Lorelai: Exactly. Whatever happened to the questionably attractive glories of Wet 'n' Wild blue eye shadow or crimping irons?
Sookie: Remember Sun-In and Aqua Net and Bonne Bell lip smackers? I used to love Bonne Bell lip smackers.
Lorelai: Well, who doesn't love a lip gloss that doubles as a necklace? And they smelled so great.
Sookie: Except once, I had the chocolate-fudge-flavored one, and in study hall, Trevor Fink ate the whole thing, and then he threw it up all over my copy of The Red Badge of Courage.
Lorelai: Well, we all had a Trevor Fink in our lives.
Quote from Michel
Lorelai: Is that our website?
Michel: It is.
Lorelai: What happened to it?
Michel: I made some modifications.
Lorelai: It's just a big picture of you.
Michel: Well, I figured since I'm the one who put the website together and I'm the one continuously updating the website, then I should be featured prominently on the website.
Lorelai: Featured? Sure. But where's the inn? All I see is your face.
Michel: Aha! But if you want to hear about the inn, you click on my mouth. See? And if you want pictures of the inn, you click on my eyes. And if you want to post something about the inn, you click on my ears. Clever, no?
Lorelai: You want to argue about this now or later?
Michel: Eh, later. I'm having too much fun.
Quote from Paris
Rory: [on the phone] Paris.
Paris: Larry Summers is right, Rory. Our university system is crumbling, did you know that?
Paris: I just found out my microbiology final is an open-book exam. Can you believe that? I mean, why have us take the test at all? Why not just have our professors take it for us? Or better yet, they can just hand us our diplomas the moment we step on campus freshman year, along with some government cheese, a bong, and a t-shirt that says "Hard work is for suckers."
Quote from Afterboom
Lorelai: Okay. Wait. Just wait. We can still leave.
Lorelai: Rory, right now is the point in the horror movie where the entire audience is yelling, "Don't go in there."
Quote from Let the Games Begin
Emily: What on earth does Frank Lloyd Wright have to do with my salad?
Richard: And your walnuts.
Lorelai: Mrs. Wright apparently had this major problem with her help. She was very rough on them and they totally hated her. So this guy who had worked for her forever, he had finally had enough. I believe the incident was over walnuts, wasn't it, honey?
Rory: The exact cause has not been proven.
Lorelai: Anyhow, Mrs. Wright invites this whole posse of people over for dinner and they're all sitting around eating, and Mr. Disgruntled Servant Guy goes outside and locks all the doors and windows and douses the whole house in gasoline and sets the place on fire.
Emily: My goodness.
Lorelai: So the house is on fire, and people are freaking out, so they run to the doors but the doors are locked, so a few of them try to get out through the windows, but Mr. Angry-Puss is standing outside with an ax hacking them to death and so they all died.
Emily: Why on earth would you tell me that story?
Lorelai: All I'm saying is, sometimes eating a walnut is preferable to getting hacked to death or set on fire during dinner.
Emily: One of these days I'm going to make you eat in your room.
