Rory Quote #784
Lorelai: Okay, here she is. This is Rory Gilmore. Rory, meet Christiane Amanpour.
Christiane Amanpour: Hi, Rory. How are you? Nice to meet you.
Rory: Nice to meet you, too. I'm sorry to meet you in my pajamas. I don't usually walk around town like this.
Christiane Amanpour: That's okay.
Rory: I just think you are so inspiring. Your reporting is so bold and moving and fascinating and I know you've won nine Emmys, but I just don't think that's enough not that you care about that kind of thing, but I just want to say thank you.
Christiane Amanpour: Thank you. That's really nice of you. And your mother says that you've graduated Yale, you're editor of the Yale Daily News. That's not bad.
Rory: Oh, thank you. I want to pursue a career in journalism.
Christiane Amanpour: That's good. Is it print you want? Television? CNN, maybe?
Rory: Oh, I'd love to work for a major daily.
Christiane Amanpour: Do you know which one?
Rory: Any one that will take me.
Christiane Amanpour: That's the spirit. I mean, you just get in there, do what you can, show them what you've got, and the rest will take care of itself.
Rory: That's my plan. Listen, I don't often do this, but I'm going to give you my card, and if you want to send me some stuff, I'll have a look at it and you know stay in touch.
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: I just feel like I need more time.
Rory: I know.
Lorelai: I really just feel ambushed, you know? I thought I had so much more... time. I thought I had all summer to impart my wisdom about work and life and your future, and I just feel like I had something to tell you. Oh, on the bus, make sure you choose a good seat, you know because people are creatures of habit, and the seat you pick in the beginning could be your seat for the rest of the year, you know. Get a window seat, honey, 'cause there's so much to see. And you might want to sit in the back of the bus, because people there tend to be more chatty and friendly and... I don't know what it is about the front of the bus, you know, but people there just tend to be a little more bossy and uptight. It's just been that way since first grade. And, honey, I know what you're gonna say, but... Just don't wear shorts, okay, no matter how hot it is. It's not professional, and all that heat and those sticky vinyl seats, it'll be like ripping a band-aid off your thigh every time you stand up. Don't be too shy. Don't be too forward, but don't be too shy, 'cause you make a lovely first impression, but you really grow on people, too.
Lorelai: You need ziplock bags. You should have them all the time, they're so handy.
Lorelai: And I'm gonna give you that orange sweater. I know you've wanted it, um, you know what, I'm you know what finally gonna give it to you.
Rory: Mom, you've given me everything I need.
Quote from Richard
Lorelai: I can't believe they did this for her.
Richard: I don't think this is all for Rory. I think this party's a testament to you, Lorelai, and the home you've created here. I regret that you needed to-
Richard: Now, let me finish, Emily. I regret it, and we've... Recent experiences have taught me-
Emily: Oh, please don't become one of those "I had a heart attack, let me express my every thought" types.
Richard: Not every thought, dear, just this one. It takes a r- A remarkable person to inspire all of this.
Lorelai: Thanks, Dad.
Quote from Lorelai's First Cotillion
Lorelai: I don't want the whole night to be about Luke.
Rory: It won't be. Don't worry. Just put it out there, and then when they attack you, whatever angle they're coming from, I will deflect.
Lorelai: How will you deflect?
Rory: Well, I don't know. Maybe I will talk about Bangalore.
Lorelai: You know a lot about Bangalore?
Rory: Don't you? Bangalore? Outsourcing? You know, when you call customer service, you're almost always talking to some nice dude in India who speaks perfect English. Don't you read Time magazine?
Lorelai: It doesn't seem like a rich subject area.
Quote from Just Like Gwen and Gavin
Rory: I'm sure he panicked. I'm sure his not telling you says nothing about your relationship. Maybe this is a cheesy perspective to offer you, but Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale went through the same sort of situation. He found out he had a kid that he didn't know about, but they made it work as far as I know.
Rory: If they can, you can.
Rory: They're people. You're people. I mean, you don't sing and neither does Luke. But really, neither do Gwen or Gavin, but they're still together I think. I haven't read anything to the contrary.
Lorelai: I guess.
Rory: You and Luke just need to talk some more.
Lorelai: Yeah. Maybe I'll tell Luke about Gwen and Gavin. I mean, if there's any people whose lives Luke would relate to, it's Gwen and Gavin.
