Lorelai Quote #931
Lorelai: This is the second time I let myself do this.
Luke: Do what?
Lorelai: Think I finally found it.
Luke: Found what?
Lorelai: Love, comfort, safety. I mean, first with Max, which of course, I screwed up, and then with Christopher, which of course, all the elements of the universe got together to screw up.
Luke: Yup, it's tough when the universe is against you. That's like taking on the Manhattan garbage union.
Lorelai: I always thought if he could just get it together, grow up... maybe we could do it. Maybe we could really be a family, in the stupid, traditional, Dan Quayle, golden retriever, grow old together, wear matching jogging suits kind of way. And then he did get it together, he became that guy... [sobs] and he gets to be that guy with her. Chris is gonna have a baby with his girlfriend. He's gonna marry her... and he's gonna be there for her while she's pregnant and he's gonna be there with her while her child grows up, and he's gonna be there for her while she does... whatever it is she does. And I am in exactly the same place that I was in before.
Luke: Is that so bad? I mean, you got Rory.
Lorelai: Yes, I do.
Luke: You got friends, you got a house, a job, apparently an iron stomach.
Lorelai: No, it's not so bad. I'm lucky, I know. I just... I feel like I'm never gonna have it... the whole package, you know? That person, that couple life, and I swear, I hate admitting it because I fancy myself Wonder Woman, but... I really want it... the whole package.
Quote from Paris
Paris: I mean, come on, Senator Boxer, as one of our foremost Democratic leaders, I ask you, do you really think it looks good to have the American Secretary of the Treasury traveling around with Bono? I mean, I know apparently he's a saint, he's going to save the world, yada, yada, yada, but my God! He never even takes the sunglasses off. We have an image to maintain, don't we? I mean, aren't we at least trying to pretend we're the superpower in this world? I mean, why not just send Carson Daly over to the Middle East next time Cheney goes, huh? Or hey, hook up Freddie Prinze Jr. with Colin Powell next time he meets with NATO. I mean, hell! Let's hear what Freddie has to say, right?
Senator Barbara Boxer: Oh, great, Doug. Paris, do you know Republican Congressman Doug Ose from California? You don't? Great. You two will have so much to talk about. Bye.
Congressman Doug Ose: Barbara...
Paris: Ose, right?
Congressman Doug Ose: Yes, that's right.
Paris: Let's take a walk.
Quote from Paris
Rory: Paris, if he just wanted to celebrate winning a debate, you guys could've had coffee afterward, but he asked you out on a date.
Paris: He did?
Paris: Did I accept?
Paris: I'm going on a date?
Rory: Yes, you are.
Paris: Oh man, I can't believe this! I finally get asked out on a date and I missed it? Was it a good ask-out?
Rory: It was a very good ask-out.
Paris: God, I wish I'd been there.
Rory: Well, you'll be there tonight.
Paris: Tonight? Tonight I have a date. Tonight I have a date with Jamie, a Princeton man. I can overlook that. Oh my God, I can't believe it... I have a date.
Quote from Afterboom
Lorelai: Okay. Wait. Just wait. We can still leave.
Lorelai: Rory, right now is the point in the horror movie where the entire audience is yelling, "Don't go in there."
Quote from Let the Games Begin
Emily: What on earth does Frank Lloyd Wright have to do with my salad?
Richard: And your walnuts.
Lorelai: Mrs. Wright apparently had this major problem with her help. She was very rough on them and they totally hated her. So this guy who had worked for her forever, he had finally had enough. I believe the incident was over walnuts, wasn't it, honey?
Rory: The exact cause has not been proven.
Lorelai: Anyhow, Mrs. Wright invites this whole posse of people over for dinner and they're all sitting around eating, and Mr. Disgruntled Servant Guy goes outside and locks all the doors and windows and douses the whole house in gasoline and sets the place on fire.
Emily: My goodness.
Lorelai: So the house is on fire, and people are freaking out, so they run to the doors but the doors are locked, so a few of them try to get out through the windows, but Mr. Angry-Puss is standing outside with an ax hacking them to death and so they all died.
Emily: Why on earth would you tell me that story?
Lorelai: All I'm saying is, sometimes eating a walnut is preferable to getting hacked to death or set on fire during dinner.
Emily: One of these days I'm going to make you eat in your room.
