Rory Quote #96
Lane: You went shopping.
Rory: Yes, I did. I got a mooing cow-shaped timer for Sookie some Cardio Salsa tapes for Michel, a book for Dean.
Lane: You got Dean a book?
Rory: Yeah, Metamorphosis.
Rory: It's Kafka.
Lane: Very romantic.
Rory: I think it is romantic.
Lane: I know I've always dreamed that some guy would get me a really confusing Czechoslovakian novel.
Quote from Luke
Luke: I've kept my father's entire store just the way he left it.
Luke: Well, I turned it into a diner. But I kept all his stuff on the walls, his pictures in the office. Even the "Hardware" sign.
Emily: I'm sure he would've appreciated having his life's work being honored like that.
Luke: He would have called me a damn fool.
Quote from Lane
Lane: You have to look at what a gift says to the other person, not to you. Remember two years ago, I got my mom that perfume?
Lane: Okay. To me that said, "Hey, Mom, you work hard. You deserve something fancy." To my mother, it said, "Mom, here's some smelly sex juice. The kind I use to lure boys with." And resulted in me being sent to Bible camp all summer.
Rory: Yeah, but-
Lane: Just imagine that you actually gave Dean something really romantic, and he gave you a football. Your hypothetical romantic present is saying that you really like him and his present is saying, "Hey, man, let's just be friends."
Rory: And you're saying that this book-
Lane: Is a Czechoslovakian football, yes.
Quote from Lorelai's First Cotillion
Lorelai: I don't want the whole night to be about Luke.
Rory: It won't be. Don't worry. Just put it out there, and then when they attack you, whatever angle they're coming from, I will deflect.
Lorelai: How will you deflect?
Rory: Well, I don't know. Maybe I will talk about Bangalore.
Lorelai: You know a lot about Bangalore?
Rory: Don't you? Bangalore? Outsourcing? You know, when you call customer service, you're almost always talking to some nice dude in India who speaks perfect English. Don't you read Time magazine?
Lorelai: It doesn't seem like a rich subject area.
Quote from Just Like Gwen and Gavin
Rory: I'm sure he panicked. I'm sure his not telling you says nothing about your relationship. Maybe this is a cheesy perspective to offer you, but Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale went through the same sort of situation. He found out he had a kid that he didn't know about, but they made it work as far as I know.
Rory: If they can, you can.
Rory: They're people. You're people. I mean, you don't sing and neither does Luke. But really, neither do Gwen or Gavin, but they're still together I think. I haven't read anything to the contrary.
Lorelai: I guess.
Rory: You and Luke just need to talk some more.
Lorelai: Yeah. Maybe I'll tell Luke about Gwen and Gavin. I mean, if there's any people whose lives Luke would relate to, it's Gwen and Gavin.
