Paris Quote #100

Quote from Paris in There's the Rub

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?

Jess: You're cracked.
Paris: Typical guy response. Worship Kerouac and Bukowski. God forbid you pick up anything by Jane Austen.

Quote from Emily

Emily: You've been pouting and sulking and sighing-
Lorelai: I have not been sighing.

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?

Quote from Emily

Emily: I still can't get over it. It really was mud. I mean, I know it said mud bath but I didn't really think they meant a real mud bath. And the odd thing is, I should've been more repulsed by it. Sitting in a tub of hot dirt, which is basically what mud is, should have made me ill, and yet, I really enjoyed it. Did yours have twigs? Mine had twigs.
