Lorelai Quote #748
Rory: Can we sit wherever we like?
Luke: Wherever you like.
Lorelai: Wow. Luxury I never dreamed of. Where do you want to sit?
Rory: I don't know.
Lorelai: How about this table with its unobstructed westward view of the wide cosmopolitan expanse of Clump Street?
Rory: Tempting. Do you know that on a clear day you can see the garbage cans behind Al's Pancake World?
Lorelai: Hmm. Or we could sit in the corner, you know, the mafia table so that no one can come up behind you and whack you with a cannoli.
Rory: Whack you with a cannoli? Oh, because he left the gun and took the cannoli.
Lorelai: You are so my daughter.
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 Afterboom
Lorelai: Okay. Wait. Just wait. We can still leave.
Lorelai: Rory, right now is the point in the horror movie where the entire audience is yelling, "Don't go in there."
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.
