Paris Quote #359

Quote from Paris in The Long Morrow

Paris: Do you want your kid to spend her life behind the counter at Dunkin' Donuts? Do you?
Woman: No.
Paris: Because that's where she's headed. Selling chocolate donuts and glazed fritters for the next 40 years to people in business suits who actually gave a crap about their academic future.
Woman: I just want her to get into a good school. She has such potential.
Paris: Well, so did Charles Manson.
Woman: What?
Paris: Look at her. Frankly, it may already be too late. I don't particularly like to take on such meek, diffident cases. Do you even know what "diffident" means? [the girl shakes her head] That's okay. That knowledge isn't really required in the retail doughnut-distribution industry.

Quote from Lorelai

Rory: It's just a model rocket. I mean, what could that mean? Who gives someone a rocket?
Lorelai: I don't know. I don't know. We'll figure it out, though. Rocket, rocket, rocket. Rocket man. "Rocket Man." "Crocodile Rock" was good. "Bennie and the Jets," "Candle in the Wind."
Rory: Are you just naming Elton John songs?
Lorelai: He is just so talented.

Quote from Babette

Babette: You're back!
Lorelai: [screams] Oh! God, Babette, you scared me.
Babette: Yeah, it's my voice. It frightens the hell out of people. I don't know what to do about it.
Lorelai: Well, you could start by not hiding in people's houses and leaping at them when they come home.
Babette: It's the nodules.
Lorelai: Who?
Babette: It's the nodules on my vocal chords. The more I strain my voice, the more they grow. It's nature's way of trying to get me to talk softer.
Lorelai: Babette, one. Nature, nada.

Quote from We've Got Magic to Do

Paris: Rory, I clocked in.
Rory: Cool.
Paris: They gave me this card, and it had my name on it. And I shoved it in the clock thing, and it made the punchy sound, and I'm officially on the job.
Rory: Great.
Paris: And I'm prepared, too. I was a little nervous last night about making small talk with co-workers, so I went to the video store and rented Working Girl and the first season of Just Shoot Me! Got a couple of Wendie Malick bon mots that have already come in handy.

Quote from Tippecanoe and Taylor, Too

Paris: How loud are you?
Rory: Paris, stop.
Paris: Look, I don't care. I just need the information to formulate a good plan. I mean, you look all small and squeaky, but sometimes, it's exactly the bunny-looking girls who can blow the roof off the barn. I know, just give me a three-minute warning.
Rory: I'm walking away now.
Paris: That way, I have time to put everything in place. Put headphones on, et cetera.
Rory: Bye.
Paris: Is he gonna be coming over a lot? Probably, right? He's at his peak now, and it's probably one of the only things he's good at so...
Rory: Three-minute warning!
