Paris Quote #54
Quote from Paris in Hammers and Veils
Paris: When you apply to an Ivy League school, you need more than good grades and test scores to get you in. Everyone who applies to Harvard has a perfect GPA and great test scores. It's the extras that put you over the top: The clubs, charities, volunteering. You know.
Rory: Oh, yeah. I know.
Paris: I started volunteering in fourth grade. I handed out cookies at the local children's hospital. By 10, I was leading my first study group. The youngest person in the group was 12.
Paris: I've been a camp counselor, I organized a senior literacy program, I worked a suicide hot line, I manned a runaway center. I've adopted dolphins, taught sign language, trained Seeing Eye dogs.
Rory: But when did you have time for a life?
Paris: I'll have a life after I graduate from Harvard. And if you'll excuse me, the drainage on the south side of this place sucks.

Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: I mean, for example, why can't you keep a maid in this house? I mean, there must have been a thousand women who have gone through here in the 32 years that I've been alive. And not one of them could stick it out.
Emily: And this is what we need to discuss right now?
Lorelai: These are women from countries that have dictatorships, civil wars and death squads. All of that, they survived. But five minutes working for Emily Gilmore, and people are begging for Castro.
Emily: I'm going to bed now.
Lorelai: And why is it that when your only daughter tells you she is getting married you can't muster up even a little enthusiasm? Even a little fake enthusiasm? Why don't you pretend that you care? I mean, this is the biggest thing to happen to me, possibly for the rest of my life. And you dismissed it, like I said: "Hey, I'm thinking of getting a Honda. What do you think?"
Emily: You're obviously hysterical.
Lorelai: Why don't you care? Why have you never cared? No matter what has happened to me my entire life you've never been happy for me. And that hurts, Mom. It really hurts.
Emily: I'm not discussing this with you.
Lorelai: Do you know how it felt for me to tell you that I was getting married and to have you just brush it off like that? Do you know?
Emily: No, I don't- I don't know! Possibly very similar to finding out from a complete stranger that my only daughter was getting married and had told every other person in the world before she bothered to tell her own mother! Possibly it felt something like that. Now if you will excuse me, it is late and I am going to bed.
Quote from Lorelai
Rory: When are you going to tell them?
Rory: When is soon?
Lorelai: When the big hand hits the 'S' and the little hand hits the 'oon'.
Paris Geller Quotes
Quote from We've Got Magic to Do
Paris: Rory, I clocked in.
Paris: They gave me this card, and it had my name on it. And I shoved it in the clock thing, and it made the punchy sound, and I'm officially on the job.
Paris: And I'm prepared, too. I was a little nervous last night about making small talk with co-workers, so I went to the video store and rented Working Girl and the first season of Just Shoot Me! Got a couple of Wendie Malick bon mots that have already come in handy.
Quote from Tippecanoe and Taylor, Too
Paris: How loud are you?
Rory: Paris, stop.
Paris: Look, I don't care. I just need the information to formulate a good plan. I mean, you look all small and squeaky, but sometimes, it's exactly the bunny-looking girls who can blow the roof off the barn. I know, just give me a three-minute warning.
Rory: I'm walking away now.
Paris: That way, I have time to put everything in place. Put headphones on, et cetera.
Paris: Is he gonna be coming over a lot? Probably, right? He's at his peak now, and it's probably one of the only things he's good at so...
Rory: Three-minute warning!
