Emily Quote #549

Quote from Emily in Bon Voyage

Lorelai: Mom, why do you want to loan me money?
Emily: All it would require is the three of us sit down and hash out the details. Obviously, we want to get together with you from time to time to see how things are progressing, but we wouldn't become pests about it.
Lorelai: Mom, why don't we just talk about it Friday night at dinner?
Emily: Oh. So our Friday-night dinners are going to continue, then?
Lorelai: Well, we might as well. I've kind of gotten used to it.
Emily: All right. That sounds fine. But don't be late and don't wear jeans.
Lorelai: When have I ever worn jeans to dinner?
Emily: Well... I don't know, it could very well be Rory who enforces the dress code. I'm just saying I don't think that jeans are appropriate.
Lorelai: Fine, spandex and a tube top it is.

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-

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.
Rory: Mom.
Lorelai: You need ziplock bags. You should have them all the time, they're so handy.
Rory: Mom.
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 Rory

Rory: You went up to her and said hi, and she said, "Hi, I'm Christiane Amanpour, nice to meet you"?
Lorelai: No, I didn't go up to her at all. I looked at here and saw that it was her, and I went to get you.
Rory: So I could look at a fake Christiane Amanpour?
Lorelai: She's real.
Rory: Yeah. Remember the time when you thought saw Sandra Day O'Connor?
Lorelai: Yeah, well, this is different and I haven't had any cough syrup.
Rory: I guarantee you it's not her.
Lorelai: You doubt my ability to recognize a glamorous, international war correspondent?
Rory: I guarantee you it's not her.
Rory: Oh, my God, that's Christiane Amanpour!

Quote from Driving Miss Gilmore

Lorelai: Here we go.
Emily: What is this?
Lorelai: This is my car.
Emily: We can't go in this. We have to take the other car.
Lorelai: What other car? No, Mom, that's not a car. That's a rap-video set.
Emily: I ordered it specially. It has the darkest windows available. They say it's the car Jay-Z uses when he's in town. I assume that's an entertainer of some sort. The windows are bulletproof. They kept saying that as if it's a selling point. I told them I was not paying extra for bulletproof windows. I haven't been strafed in years.

Quote from Blame Booze and Melville

Lorelai: Look, Mom, I was mad at you when I did the interview, okay? And I said things but I didn't mean them, it just happened. And I'm not used to talking to reporters. I didn't know about the whole "off the record, on the record" thing. But I know now. And I'm really sorry it happened.
Emily: I did not force Jimmy Carter out of his room at that hotel.
Lorelai: See, now that I thought was just an amusing anecdote.
Emily: I did not get into a, quote, "bitch-fight" with him. He's an ex-president! It was with that insufferable Rosalyn.

Quote from You Jump, I Jump, Jack

Emily: Diners are generally so filthy. I'm sure yours isn't, but the horror stories you hear. I read that one in Vermont got caught serving roadkill. Do you know what that is?
Luke: Uh, yeah, it's, uh, dead animals from the street.
Emily: From the street, from the backyard, fished out of pools. These diners find it and serve it. Again, probably not yours. But the fact that this place got away with it at all is astounding. I guess people who frequent diners don't look too closely at what they're eating out of self defense.
Luke: We don't serve roadkill at my place.
Emily: Well, good for you. I had a friend who ate at a diner once and the next day she dropped dead. Her family considered suing the place but there's nothing to get from these people. A couple of stools and a toaster. But they were sure it was a matter of hygiene and they eventually drove them out of the state. I don't want to tell you what they found when they moved the stove. Would you like another beer, Luke?
