Jess Quote #40

Quote from Jess in There's the Rub

Jess: I see you brought a little something, too. Is that ice cream? That's so nice. A tiny little ice-cream package just big enough for two. Hey, are you guys gonna feed each other? 'Cause that's just so darn cute. Oh. You're doing that towering-over-me thing. I tell you, you've really got that down. It helps that you're 12 feet tall. But this Frankenstein scowl really adds to the whole-
Rory: Jess!
Jess: Okay, I'm going. Look, man, I really was just dropping off some food so don't get all West Side Story on me, okay?

Quote from Paris

Paris: Well, it's true. The Beats' writing was completely self-indulgent. I have one word for Jack Kerouac: Edit.
Jess: It was not self-indulgent. The Beats believed in shocking people stirring things up.
Paris: They believed in drugs, booze, and petty crime.
Rory: Well, then, you could say they expose you to a world you wouldn't have otherwise known. Isn't it what great writing's about?
Paris: That wasn't great writing. It was the National Enquirer of the '50s.
Jess: You're cracked.
Paris: Typical guy response. Worship Kerouac and Bukowski. God forbid you pick up anything by Jane Austen.

Quote from Rory

Dean: Since your mother's going to be gone, maybe I'd come over.
Rory: What? I was thinking of pulling kind of a hermit thing tonight.
Dean: Why?
Rory: I don't know. J.D. Salinger seems to dig it.
Dean: You don't want me to come over?
Rory: No, I just... I almost never get the house all to myself, and I thought with my mom gone I can finally do my laundry exactly the way I like it. You know, not separating into whites and colors, but the colors separated into darks, mediums, and lights. With a separate pile for white T-shirts and T-shirts with some kind of writing on them like "Rock Star", "Evil", or "Kafka Was Here".
Dean: You want to be alone to do laundry?
Rory: And watch TV, and eat the Indian food I love but my mom hates the smell of, and go to bed early, and...

Quote from Emily

Emily: You've been pouting and sulking and sighing-
Lorelai: I have not been sighing.
Emily: ...rolling your eyes, mumbling.
Lorelai: Well, that's how I detox.
Emily: Ever since we got here, you've made it your mission to be as miserable as possible.
Lorelai: That's not true.
Emily: It's completely true. And if you don't care about hurting my feelings, maybe you care that you're wasting all your relaxing time acting like a petulant 4-year-old.
Lorelai: I'm sorry.
Emily: Do you want me to try to get myself another room?
Lorelai: No.
Emily: I saw a supply closet down the hall. Maybe my masseur could finish me in there.
Lorelai: Okay, Mom.
Emily: Or perhaps I could roll myself against a stucco wall eliminate the need for a masseur altogether.
