Paris Quote #89

Quote from Paris in It Should've Been Lorelai

Paris: You're only doing 135 WPM.
Rory: WPM?
Paris: "Words per minute".
Rory: Of course.
Paris: That's slow.
Rory: That's not slow.
Paris: It's Jimmy Bob slow.
Rory: I talk normally.
Paris: For the average Willie Nelson roadie, yes, but not for a winning debate member. As a comparison, I speak an average of 178 WPM.
Rory: Word speed isn't everything. Sometimes, I will add a dramatic pause to prove a point, undercutting my WPM.
Paris: Let's not harbor any Pinteresque fantasies here, Rorie. We'll have scant minutes to argue and we have to maximize our collective WPM.

Quote from Lane

Lane: [on the phone] Listen, I don't have much time. I've already used up my five minutes of phone time but I had to talk to you. There's a new Belle and Sebastian single coming out today.
Rory: I know.
Lane: I have to have it.
Rory: Okay. Well,
Lane: No, I have to have it.
Rory: I don't know if I have time to pick it up.
Lane: What? Rory, do you want to hear how I used up my phone time today? Talking to Amazon.com, trying to get them to overnight it to me in a plain package referencing something Korean and religious.
Rory: Wouldn't do it, huh?
Lane: I think they notified the government.
Rory: Can't you just wait for your grounding to be over?
Lane: Hey, I am a fanatic audiophile. And that comes with responsibilities that a grounding doesn't alter. I have to have this single and you have to figure out how to get it to me.

Quote from Lane

Rory: [on the phone] So I guess you're still grounded over that whole Henry thing?
Lane: Are you kidding? The mother of all groundings. Mom's done everything but slap a Dr. Dre ankle bracelet on me. I'm not even going to school.
Rory: Isn't it illegal to keep a kid out of school?
Lane: Well, she talked my teachers into me being home-schooled for two weeks. I believe the words "highly contagious" were bandied about. I get five minutes a day of outside phone time, but unlimited time to call the Psalm-A-Day Line. A big rip-off because Psalm 79 has been on there for three days. That's not in keeping with what their name implies which is a new Psalm per day, every day, not the same tired one from the previous days.
Rory: I've never heard anyone get so riled up about psalms before.
Lane: My world has become very small.

Quote from We've Got Magic to Do

Paris: Rory, I clocked in.
Rory: Cool.
Paris: They gave me this card, and it had my name on it. And I shoved it in the clock thing, and it made the punchy sound, and I'm officially on the job.
Rory: Great.
Paris: And I'm prepared, too. I was a little nervous last night about making small talk with co-workers, so I went to the video store and rented Working Girl and the first season of Just Shoot Me! Got a couple of Wendie Malick bon mots that have already come in handy.

Quote from Tippecanoe and Taylor, Too

Paris: How loud are you?
Rory: Paris, stop.
Paris: Look, I don't care. I just need the information to formulate a good plan. I mean, you look all small and squeaky, but sometimes, it's exactly the bunny-looking girls who can blow the roof off the barn. I know, just give me a three-minute warning.
Rory: I'm walking away now.
Paris: That way, I have time to put everything in place. Put headphones on, et cetera.
Rory: Bye.
Paris: Is he gonna be coming over a lot? Probably, right? He's at his peak now, and it's probably one of the only things he's good at so...
Rory: Three-minute warning!
