Rory Quote #733
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 Michel
Michel: You owe me.
Lorelai: What? I do not.
Michel: Oh, yes, you do. Last November, when you were going out of town and nervous about boarding Paul Anka for the first time, you forced me, against my better judgment, to have Paul Anka over to my home for the day so he could acclimate to other dogs. Well, not only did he traumatize my poor chows, but somehow he managed to get into my closet, the door of which was firmly closed.
Lorelai: I know. I don't know how he does that.
Michel: ...and proceeded to poop in my Prada loafers.
Lorelai: Well, he knows good quality.
Michel: When I returned your foul creature and told you about what happened, you apologized profusely and then wrote an I.O.U. on several little Post-its, thinking it was all so clever.
Lorelai: Gosh, I don't remember that.
Michel: I thought as much.
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: Then they didn't react. Not one bit. It's almost like the absence of their reaction was worse than any freak-out they could have had.
Rory: Okay. Sure.
Lorelai: Then I thought, "Why? Why do I care if they freak out? I mean, what do I get out of it?" And then I thought, "Maybe their freak-outs are like some kind of compass for me, you know, like, I know I'm doing what I want to do if it freaks them out." And then I thought, "What if I don't want to do what I want to do because I want to do it, but because they don't want me to?"
Lorelai: I mean, what if I don't like what I like because I like it, but because my mother doesn't like it and doesn't want me to like it? What if I don't actually like the music that I like or the movies or the clothes or the men? What if I don't like what I seem to like?
Rory: Ah, hence the Pop-Tart.
Quote from Just Like Gwen and Gavin
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 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.
