Lorelai Quote #2375

Quote from Lorelai in The Great Stink

Lorelai: It's his first night staying at your house. I want him to have all the stuff that makes him comfortable. Ooh, tennis balls! [exits]
Christopher: I actually have tennis balls.
Lorelai: [o.s.] Penn or Wilson?
Christopher: You're joking.
Lorelai: Paul Anka's must be Penn. They must be new, they must be green. Not orange and green, just green. And FYI, you might want to watch that sarcastic tone of yours because dogs are very attuned to tone. It's kind of like Chinese, in that respect, dog language. It's very tone based. And you are stressing him out right now with your tone.

Bill: When the editor in chief isn't here, the managing editor's in charge. That's standard operating procedure at every newspaper in the country.
Paris: Yes, but I've done this 1,000 times, and you've never done it, Bill. Experience.
Bill: Experience that led to a mutiny. It's not like anyone ever gave Captain Bligh another ship after the Bounty.
Paris: Of course they did, multiple ships, and by the time he died, they promoted the guy to Rear Admiral. Do you think the British royal navy ruled the world in the 19th century by letting that much natural talent and leadership capability go to waste just because a few whiny complainers wanted more breadfruit and less scurvy?

Quote from Richard

Richard: Well, naturally I thought they were referring to the archduke. So I jumped in, as who wouldn't? With some thoughts about the various conspiracy theories surrounding his infamous assassination in Sarajevo. Imagine my surprise when I learned that Franz Ferdinand was the name of a very popular rock-'n'-roll band.
Emily: [laughs] That's what he gets for trying to fraternize after class with his students.
Richard: One of them even offered to burn a CD for me.

Quote from Emily

Emily: Of course, this time of year, so many people start playing that awful winter tennis with the chicken-wire cages and the heated courts.
Richard: Platform tennis can be very enjoyable, Emily.
Emily: Yes, but it looks ridiculous, like glorified ping-pong. If I wanted to play ping-pong, I would... Well, if I wanted to play ping-pong, I would kill myself.
