Lorelai Quote #2451
Judge: The first letter is written on behalf of Mr. Danes by a miss Lorelai Gilmore. This is dated January 9, 2007. "To whom it may concern, "in the nearly 10 years that I have known Luke Danes, I have come to know him as an honest and decent man. He's also one of the most kind and caring persons I have ever met."
[Christopher reads the draft letter in Lorelai's bedroom]
Lorelai: [v.o.] "I'm a single mother, and I raised my daughter by myself, but once Luke Danes became my friend in this town, I never really felt alone. Luke and I have had our ups and downs over the years, but through it all, his relationship with my daughter, Rory, has never changed. He's always been there for her no matter what. He was there to celebrate her birthdays. He was there cheering her on at her high school graduation. Luke has been a sort of father figure in my daughter's life. With his own daughter, Luke wasn't given the opportunity to be there for her first 12 years, but he should be given that opportunity now. Once Luke Danes is in your life, he is in your life forever."
Judge: "I know from personal experience what an amazing gift that is, and not to allow him access to his daughter would be to seriously deprive her of all this man has to offer, and he offers so much. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Lorelai Gilmore."
Quote from Paris
Rory: I'm not being lazy, Paris. I'm not interested in being a lawyer. I'm interested in journalism.
Paris: Just because you go to law school doesn't mean you have you have to be a lawyer. Look at Dan Abrams. He's a journalist, but because of his law degree, he became the face of the Scott Peterson trial.
Rory: I don't want to be the face of the Scott Peterson trial, and I hate Dan Abrams. I will also not be taking the MCATs.
Paris: Sanjay Gupta, senior medical correspondent at CNN. Right now, he's got the market cornered.
Rory: Well, good for Sanjay.
Quote from Paris
Paris: So, we seem to have a block of eight days here in late March that is disturbingly free of resume-building activity. Might be a good time to commit to some volunteer work. I'm not crazy about wheeling around elderlies in bathrobes, so I'm leaning towards tree planting.
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.
