Sookie Quote #297
Sookie: Ooh, Angelina and Brad had their baby. [gasps] Months and months ago.
Lorelai: Yeah, you're a little behind the times.
Sookie: This is the problem with having two kids under the age of 4. World events just pass you by.
Lorelai: Are you done with those favors?
Sookie: You know, I cannot believe Britney is driving with her baby on her lap like that. What is she doing with that guy, by the way?
Lorelai: Well, you'll be glad to know they've since broken up, although it turns out he was kind of a stabilizing influence in her life. Who knew?
Sookie: You're kidding.
Quote from Kirk
Kirk: Luke, check it out. I've been published.
Luke: You have?
Kirk: Mother wanted to sell her dinette set, so I put pen to paper, got my creative juices flowing, and voila.
Luke: You put a want ad in the Stars Hollow Gazette?
Kirk: It's a powerful feeling seeing yourself immortalized in print. Sure, it's only newsprint. It rips easily, it comes off on your fingers, and the next day, people use it to wrap fish, but, hey, it's how Dickens got started.
Luke: In want ads?
Kirk: Man, this thing really flows. "Vintage dinette set, formica, barely chipped, priced to move." It's precise, efficient, Hemingwayesque in its terse simplicity. Hey, with two buns in the oven, you wouldn't be interested in a dinette set, would you? Seats four.
Zach: No, thanks, man.
Quote from Lane
Lane: You didn't hear about the fight? Me and my mom, classic Kim family grudgefest? If not for your mom, we might have gone the way of pretty girls make graves. They were so young and had so many killer albums left in them.
Rory: So my mom brokered peace?
Lane: Hard-core. Listen, here's the thing. My kids are gonna need that, too. You know, when they're hiding bibles and they can't stand me. So what I wanted to know is would you be their Lorelai Gilmore? I guess that's the proper term.
Lane: I can't think of anyone who would be better. Plus, you already have the name.
Rory: I'd love to. Yeah.
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.
