Quote from Lane

Mrs. Kim: This is exactly why I make these rules. You're too young, too vulnerable. American boys have different values. They don't understand respect. You get hurt. I do all of this so you don't get hurt, and now you are hurt. I don't like this at all. Who is he? This boy who hurt you?
Lane: Henry Cho.
Mrs. Kim: Cho? Cho sounds Korean.
Lane: It is Korean.
Mrs. Kim: He was Korean?
Lane: Yes, and he was smart and wonderful and cute...
Mrs. Kim: And you're sure he was Korean?
Lane: He's gonna be a doctor. He goes to church. He's a counselor at Bible camp. And he liked me.
Mrs. Kim: A doctor!
Lane: I'm so stupid. I should have just told you and I didn't. Now he's gone, and I'm just stupid.
Mrs. Kim: Maybe I can call his mother.
Lane: I don't want to talk about this anymore.
Mrs. Kim: You're sure he was Korean?

Quote from Let Me Hear Your Balalaikas Ringing Out

Jess: So, where do you want to go?
Rory: I don't know. I don't know the area that well.
Jess: You live here.
Rory: I know, but Hartford's still a mystery. Even when I went to Chilton, I got right on the bus and headed home. So I don't even have any old high school hangouts to revisit. And these days, I've just been eating here.
Jess: Well, I just prefer not going someplace that has food in the title.
Rory: Meaning...
Jess: Olive, chili, soup. No gardens. No plantations.
