Rory Quote #272
Lane: [on the phone] Okay, I'm dying for news. Give me some headlines.
Rory: Well, I've got a debate coming up and Dean's been working extra hours lately saving up for a new motorcycle, so I hardly see him. Mom and I haven't done laundry in three weeks but I've begun jumping into the huge pile of dirty clothes as we play our Reader's Digest World's Famous Polkas CD that we got used for 99 cents. Sorry if that's boring.
Lane: You kidding? That's the most stimulation I've got in a week.
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 Lorelai's First Cotillion
Lorelai: I don't want the whole night to be about Luke.
Rory: It won't be. Don't worry. Just put it out there, and then when they attack you, whatever angle they're coming from, I will deflect.
Lorelai: How will you deflect?
Rory: Well, I don't know. Maybe I will talk about Bangalore.
Lorelai: You know a lot about Bangalore?
Rory: Don't you? Bangalore? Outsourcing? You know, when you call customer service, you're almost always talking to some nice dude in India who speaks perfect English. Don't you read Time magazine?
Lorelai: It doesn't seem like a rich subject area.
Quote from Just Like Gwen and Gavin
Rory: I'm sure he panicked. I'm sure his not telling you says nothing about your relationship. Maybe this is a cheesy perspective to offer you, but Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale went through the same sort of situation. He found out he had a kid that he didn't know about, but they made it work as far as I know.
Rory: If they can, you can.
Rory: They're people. You're people. I mean, you don't sing and neither does Luke. But really, neither do Gwen or Gavin, but they're still together I think. I haven't read anything to the contrary.
Lorelai: I guess.
Rory: You and Luke just need to talk some more.
Lorelai: Yeah. Maybe I'll tell Luke about Gwen and Gavin. I mean, if there's any people whose lives Luke would relate to, it's Gwen and Gavin.
