Emily Quote #509
Emily: I'm so happy you love it. We were flying blind without a gift registry.
Lorelai: Well, you flew great, Mom.
Emily: Of course, I imagine it's difficult to have the forethought to register when you decide to suddenly elope. Everything changes when a couple elopes, doesn't it? Nothing is done in quite the traditional manner. For instance, informing your parents of your marriage by leaving them a message on their answering machine.
Christopher: What? You told me you told them.
Lorelai: I didn't say they were home when I told them.
Rory: Mom, you're such a chicken.
Christopher: You left a message on their machine?
Richard: She certainly did.
Emily: I come home, and I push "play" on the machine, and what do I hear between a message from Lily Margulies about her fund-raiser for Tanzanian children and one from my tennis pro, but my very own daughter telling me, guess what, she's married.
Quote from Emily
Emily: Lorelai, you ought to celebrate your marriage.
Lorelai: We did. We did celebrate. Right after we got married, we went out and had a beautiful meal, didn't we? We had a beautiful meal. Yeah, we had a chocolate mousse and a para liqueur and a cheese plate.
Emily: A cheese plate? Since when is a hunk of fermented milk a suitable means for celebrating a marriage?
Quote from I Am Kayak, Hear Me Roar
Emily: It's like a canoe.
Lorelai: What's like a canoe?
Emily: You're just paddling along in a canoe.
Lorelai: Mother, have you ever been in a canoe?
Lorelai: Well, I just can't picture you in a canoe.
Emily: Your father and I have been paddling a canoe together for years. Only now, he's dropped the paddle. He just dropped it. Not only that, but now the canoe is going in circles. Without your father there, I'm paddling on my side and the canoe is spinning in circles, and the harder I paddle, the faster it spins, and it's hard work, and I'm getting tired.
Quote from Driving Miss Gilmore
Lorelai: Here we go.
Emily: What is this?
Lorelai: This is my car.
Emily: We can't go in this. We have to take the other car.
Lorelai: What other car? No, Mom, that's not a car. That's a rap-video set.
Emily: I ordered it specially. It has the darkest windows available. They say it's the car Jay-Z uses when he's in town. I assume that's an entertainer of some sort. The windows are bulletproof. They kept saying that as if it's a selling point. I told them I was not paying extra for bulletproof windows. I haven't been strafed in years.
