Lorelai Quote #237
Emily: I just wanna know what you were thinking. What was the reasoning? How on earth did you justify it to yourself?
Lorelai: Max is a great guy. An amazing guy. He's smart. He's sweet. He cooks.
Emily: So you decided to kiss him in your daughter's school.
Lorelai: No, I decided to break up with him in my daughter's school and the kissing part just happened.
Emily: You always let your emotions get in the way. That's the problem with you, Lorelai. You don't think.
Lorelai: Mom, please.
Emily: He's just a man, Lorelai.
Lorelai: No, he's not.
Emily: Oh, so, what are you telling me? This was all worth it because he was the love of your life? That this was the man for you?
Lorelai: I don't know. He might have been. Excuse me.
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: Wow. These are beautiful. Huh. I never read Proust. I always wanted to. Every now and then I'm seized with an overwhelming urge to say something like: "As Marcel Proust would say..." But I have no idea what he would say. So I don't even go there. I could do, "As Michael Crichton would say..." but it's not exactly the same.
Quote from Rory
Lorelai: Laryngitis. "M"
Rory: Mumps. "N"
Lorelai: Narcolepsy. "O"
Rory: Are we going to have to go through this every time we decide who has to clean the refrigerator?
Lorelai: You wanna go back to thumb wrestling?
Rory: Osteoporosis. "P"
Rory: That's not a disease. Oh, boy!
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: Rory, look at the baby.
Lorelai: "Buttercup was found cold and wet, hovering under a hydrangea bush along Highway 26." It's a sad highway!
Rory: As compared to all the happy highways she could've been abandoned by?
Lorelai: "Her lineage includes cocker spaniel, golden retriever, Bouvier des Flandres"-
Lorelai: Thank you. "And rottweiler."
Rory: "Buttercup is a special dog. She is extremely skittish and tends to react badly toward blond-haired females, brunette males, children of either sex, other animals, red clothing, cabbage, or anyone in uniform."
Lorelai: [to Luke] Hey, we just found the doggy version of you.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
