Sookie Quote #291
Sookie: I have your coffee and muffins hot from the oven. Well, actually, they're not really muffins. They're muffin tops because the muffin tops are the only parts you like.
Lorelai: You baked me a whole basket of muffin tops?
Sookie: Yep. I have got apple-cinnamon-walnut, lemon-poppy seed, apple spice, and double chocolate chip, which is really more cake than muffin. But if calling them a muffin means you can eat them in the morning, then I am all for it.
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 Luke Can See Her Face
Lorelai: How late can you stay, Sookie?
Sookie: As late as you want. Davey's with his grandparents, and Jackson's sleeping with the zucchini tonight.
Lorelai: What's that, farm jargon?
Sookie: No, he's sleeping with the zucchini.
Lorelai: But what does that mean, sleeping with the zucchini?
Sookie: It means he's sleeping with the zucchini.
Lorelai: Sookie, fill me in here. Where's Jackson?
Sookie: Well, he checked the forecast today, and there's a potential cold front coming in from Canada, and he knows how important the zucchini is for opening day menu, so...
Lorelai: Are you saying that "sleeping with the zucchini" means...
Sookie: He's sleeping with the zucchini.
Quote from The Deer Hunters
Sookie: He said my risotto was fine.
Lorelai: Isn't it?
Sookie: No, it's not fine. Fine is a word you use when someone stops you on the street that you sort of know, but you don't want to talk to. They ask you how you are, and you say "Fine." And that's enough so they don't have to keep talking to you, "cause they don't want to. Then they can feel good because they've been considerate enough to ask and if, God forbid, something actually is wrong they'll actually sit down, take time and listen, even if they don't want to.
Lorelai: Sookie, I don't think he meant fine as a slam or as a monologue.
Sookie: He couldn't have meant it any other way.
Lorelai: Sookie, I hate to see you get so upset over one little review.
Sookie: This is pride, Lorelai. I mean, you know about this risotto. I mean, on my mother's deathbed-
Lorelai: You made the risotto and she lived three more years.
Sookie: She was supposed to be dead. The doctor said she wouldn't live through the night.
Lorelai: And she lived because of the risotto, the magic risotto.
Sookie: And this guy had the nerve to say it was fine.
Lorelai: I don't think he knew the story.
