Michel Quote #250
Lorelai: Michel, how long has Christiane Amanpour been here?
Michel: Uh, she checked in late last night, room 7.
Lorelai: She's staying here? [Rory gasps] You didn't tell me?
Michel: I wanted to avoid yet another embarrassing incident.
Lorelai: What are you talking about?
Michel: You always embarrass yourself when celebrities stay at the inn.
Lorelai: I do not.
Michel: Jane Pauley, Harry Belafonte, Marisa Tomei.
Rory: He's right, you know?
Lorelai: No, no, Marisa Tomei's mother's best friend is my hairdresser's cousin's roommate. That's just freaky.
Michel: I'm just saying you make them uncomfortable.
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 Super Cool Party People
Lorelai: Is that our website?
Michel: It is.
Lorelai: What happened to it?
Michel: I made some modifications.
Lorelai: It's just a big picture of you.
Michel: Well, I figured since I'm the one who put the website together and I'm the one continuously updating the website, then I should be featured prominently on the website.
Lorelai: Featured? Sure. But where's the inn? All I see is your face.
Michel: Aha! But if you want to hear about the inn, you click on my mouth. See? And if you want pictures of the inn, you click on my eyes. And if you want to post something about the inn, you click on my ears. Clever, no?
Lorelai: You want to argue about this now or later?
Michel: Eh, later. I'm having too much fun.
Quote from Welcome to the Doll House
Lorelai: Where is all this stupid stuff coming from?
Michel: Looks like classic Home Shopping Channel merchandise to me.
Lorelai: I have not bought anything off the Home Shopping Channel.
Michel: That you remember.
Lorelai: How could I not remember?
Michel: You could be deluding yourself, suppressing a shameful, costly, and yes, extremely tacky shopping addiction from your memory.
Lorelai: I do not have a Home Shopping Channel addiction. This does look familiar, like I've seen it before.
Michel: Mmm-hmm. And was Joan Rivers or Suzanne Somers holding it up?
Lorelai: I'm not buying these things.
Michel: You keep telling yourself that.
