Sookie Quote #281
Sookie: Oh, I am a fantastic arm-wrestler. You know what I think did it? The whisking. All those years of whiskin has given me incredible forearm strength. People are always like, "Why take the time to hand-whip fresh cream? Why not use a machine?" And I've always been like, "I don't know why I do it. It's just something that I do." But now I know. Because I've been training for this very day. I mean, wow! I am strong. And the omelet flipping definitely is part of it. I mean, you know when you use one of those really heavy cast-iron skillets, and you flip, flip? I mean, that's all in the wrist, you know? And that's what they say. You know, that's what people say about arm-wrestling, too. That it's all in the wrist. And, man, I have super-bionic, super-powered, super wrists. I mean, who knew I possessed such...
Quote from Lorelai
Rory: It's just a model rocket. I mean, what could that mean? Who gives someone a rocket?
Lorelai: I don't know. I don't know. We'll figure it out, though. Rocket, rocket, rocket. Rocket man. "Rocket Man." "Crocodile Rock" was good. "Bennie and the Jets," "Candle in the Wind."
Rory: Are you just naming Elton John songs?
Lorelai: He is just so talented.
Quote from Babette
Babette: You're back!
Lorelai: [screams] Oh! God, Babette, you scared me.
Babette: Yeah, it's my voice. It frightens the hell out of people. I don't know what to do about it.
Lorelai: Well, you could start by not hiding in people's houses and leaping at them when they come home.
Babette: It's the nodules.
Babette: It's the nodules on my vocal chords. The more I strain my voice, the more they grow. It's nature's way of trying to get me to talk softer.
Lorelai: Babette, one. Nature, nada.
Quote from Luke Can See Her Face
Lorelai: How late can you stay, Sookie?
Sookie: As late as you want. Davey's with his grandparents, and Jackson's sleeping with the zucchini tonight.
Lorelai: What's that, farm jargon?
Sookie: No, he's sleeping with the zucchini.
Lorelai: But what does that mean, sleeping with the zucchini?
Sookie: It means he's sleeping with the zucchini.
Lorelai: Sookie, fill me in here. Where's Jackson?
Sookie: Well, he checked the forecast today, and there's a potential cold front coming in from Canada, and he knows how important the zucchini is for opening day menu, so...
Lorelai: Are you saying that "sleeping with the zucchini" means...
Sookie: He's sleeping with the zucchini.
Quote from The Deer Hunters
Sookie: He said my risotto was fine.
Lorelai: Isn't it?
Sookie: No, it's not fine. Fine is a word you use when someone stops you on the street that you sort of know, but you don't want to talk to. They ask you how you are, and you say "Fine." And that's enough so they don't have to keep talking to you, "cause they don't want to. Then they can feel good because they've been considerate enough to ask and if, God forbid, something actually is wrong they'll actually sit down, take time and listen, even if they don't want to.
Lorelai: Sookie, I don't think he meant fine as a slam or as a monologue.
Sookie: He couldn't have meant it any other way.
Lorelai: Sookie, I hate to see you get so upset over one little review.
Sookie: This is pride, Lorelai. I mean, you know about this risotto. I mean, on my mother's deathbed-
Lorelai: You made the risotto and she lived three more years.
Sookie: She was supposed to be dead. The doctor said she wouldn't live through the night.
Lorelai: And she lived because of the risotto, the magic risotto.
Sookie: And this guy had the nerve to say it was fine.
Lorelai: I don't think he knew the story.
