Lorelai Quote #1051

Quote from Lorelai in 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.

‘Let the Games Begin’ Quotes

Quote from Luke

Luke: It's time to lay down a few ground rules, sit. All right, first off, when she is up here, that door stays open.
Jess: Excuse me?
Luke: You are not allowed on either end of this apartment. You are, instead, to remain here in the middle portion of the room. You may sit on the couch or on the chair, as long as you two are sitting on separate seats, i.e. when you're on the couch, then she's on the chair. When she's on the couch, then you're on the chair.
Jess: I get it, thank you.
Luke: On weekdays, you will have her home by nine. On weekends, you will have her home by eleven. Any evidence of alcohol, cigarette smoke, or anything else that Nancy Reagan would find unacceptable and you will not be allowed near her without an adult present. Are these rules clear?

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: Rory, let me explain something to you. The way you survive a road trip with my mother is to make sure you have all your bases covered, leave nothing to chance. Never give her the opportunity to give you a thirty-minute lecture on how, if you'd brought the second bathing suit like she told you to, it wouldn't have mattered that the first one's strap broke in a freak pool slide incident that no one, including the Amazing Kreskin, could've predicted, you would've been covered.
Rory: I have to bring a bathing suit? It's thirty degrees outside.
Lorelai: This was an example based on a true story. Now, get a skirt to go with this.
Rory: But I'm still confused. When are we changing?
Lorelai: Not the point.
Rory: We're driving, we're walking, we're eating tacos, and we're driving again.
Lorelai: Check the list.
Rory: Why do I need rain boots?
Lorelai: Why are you still questioning me?
Rory: Should I bring both a rain hat and an umbrella, or will one or the other do? Forget it, stupid question.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: You're seriously gonna run all over town looking for Jess and Rory?
Luke: If I have to, yes. And if you were really a concerned mother, you'd go out there with me.
Lorelai: No, I can't do that. But if you like, I'll let you sniff Rory's sweater. Maybe her scent will help you track them down.
Luke: The things you find amusing astound me sometimes. [grabs Rory's sweater]
Lorelai: You're not really gonna sniff it.
Luke: No, it's cold out. She might need it.

Quote from Richard in Stars Hollow

Lorelai: How about a triple feature? Three Days of the Condor, The Show, and The Jerk.
Rory: Hmm. The Show is, like, 9.5 hours.
Lorelai: But The Jerk is short.
Rory: Hmm.
Lorelai: The three faces of Costner: Bull Durham, Dances with Wolves, The Postman. Tom Petty playing Tom Petty, that great big speech about: "Once upon a time, there was a thing called mail. It'll make you laugh, cry, or mail something."
Rory: Ooh, we could do a Ruth Gordon film festival. Harold and Maude, Rosemary's Baby, and that really great episode of Taxi.
Lorelai: Got it. The worst film festival ever: Cool as Ice, Hudson Hawk, and Electric Boogaloo.
Rory: Sold.
Lorelai: I'll get the Hawk.
Rory: I'll get the Boogaloo.

Quote from The Road Trip to Harvard

Emily: You know what? I'm not returning the gift. I'm going to put it away in a closet and you won't know what it is until you do get married someday.
Lorelai: Tell me now.
Emily: Sorry.
Lorelai: Come on, I may never get married. I may be a free spirit my whole life or I'll fall in love with a separated Catholic guy like Katharine Hepburn did and then not get to go to his funeral when he dies.
