Lorelai Quote #722

Quote from Lorelai in 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.


 ‘Richard in Stars Hollow’ Quotes

Quote from Richard

Richard: You didn't order any grapefruit.
Lorelai: Yeah, I don't really like grapefruit.
Richard: Hmm. I always start my breakfast with half a grapefruit.
Lorelai: Do the Florida people know about you? Because Anita Bryant left this huge gap that has yet to be filled.
Richard: It's important to start the day off correctly, Lorelai. A grapefruit is brain food. It has vitamin C and folic acid, and it helps with your digestion. It really is a terrific fruit.
Lorelai: I feel like you're about to break into song.
Richard: I'm serious about this, Lorelai.
Lorelai: I know you are, but I still don't like grapefruit.
Richard: Well, there are many things in life that we don't like but their benefits far outweigh the temporary discomforts we have to endure.

Quote from Lorelai

Lorelai: Because she wants to go to Harvard.
Richard: Well, that's ridiculous. Who's going to help her get into Harvard?
Lorelai: Reese Witherspoon.

Quote from Richard

Richard: Don't you think I know why you "invited" me here?
Lorelai: Because-
Richard: Because your mother asked you to. She called you up and said I was driving her crazy. And would you please take me off her hands for one day so she could get some peace, isn't that true?
Lorelai: No.
Richard: You have never once invited me to your house, Lorelai. Never. And I can hardly point to an event that would prompt you to do so except my recent employment situation.
Lorelai: Okay, Dad, Mom did call me, but-
Richard: You know, I never thought about retirement. I never thought about what I would do or what I would be once I wasn't working. I never once imagined that I would go from being a productive member of the human race to a decrepit old drone sitting at the club at 3:00 in the afternoon drinking brandy and playing cards.
Lorelai: Oh, Dad.
Richard: I am an annoyance to my wife and a burden to my daughter. Suddenly I realize what it feels like to be obsolete. I hope that you never have to learn what that feels like. Now, if you'll excuse me. I'm afraid I'll have to take a rain check on dinner. I'm not very hungry.

 Lorelai Gilmore Quotes

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 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.

Quote from The Road Trip to Harvard

Rory: Or some coffee?
Lorelai: Or some coffee.
