Paris Quote #124
Rory: Paris, if he just wanted to celebrate winning a debate, you guys could've had coffee afterward, but he asked you out on a date.
Paris: He did?
Paris: Did I accept?
Paris: I'm going on a date?
Rory: Yes, you are.
Paris: Oh man, I can't believe this! I finally get asked out on a date and I missed it? Was it a good ask-out?
Rory: It was a very good ask-out.
Paris: God, I wish I'd been there.
Rory: Well, you'll be there tonight.
Paris: Tonight? Tonight I have a date. Tonight I have a date with Jamie, a Princeton man. I can overlook that. Oh my God, I can't believe it... I have a date.
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: This is the second time I let myself do this.
Luke: Do what?
Lorelai: Think I finally found it.
Luke: Found what?
Lorelai: Love, comfort, safety. I mean, first with Max, which of course, I screwed up, and then with Christopher, which of course, all the elements of the universe got together to screw up.
Luke: Yup, it's tough when the universe is against you. That's like taking on the Manhattan garbage union.
Lorelai: I always thought if he could just get it together, grow up... maybe we could do it. Maybe we could really be a family, in the stupid, traditional, Dan Quayle, golden retriever, grow old together, wear matching jogging suits kind of way. And then he did get it together, he became that guy... [sobs] and he gets to be that guy with her. Chris is gonna have a baby with his girlfriend. He's gonna marry her... and he's gonna be there for her while she's pregnant and he's gonna be there with her while her child grows up, and he's gonna be there for her while she does... whatever it is she does. And I am in exactly the same place that I was in before.
Luke: Is that so bad? I mean, you got Rory.
Lorelai: Yes, I do.
Luke: You got friends, you got a house, a job, apparently an iron stomach.
Lorelai: No, it's not so bad. I'm lucky, I know. I just... I feel like I'm never gonna have it... the whole package, you know? That person, that couple life, and I swear, I hate admitting it because I fancy myself Wonder Woman, but... I really want it... the whole package.
Quote from Paris
Paris: I mean, come on, Senator Boxer, as one of our foremost Democratic leaders, I ask you, do you really think it looks good to have the American Secretary of the Treasury traveling around with Bono? I mean, I know apparently he's a saint, he's going to save the world, yada, yada, yada, but my God! He never even takes the sunglasses off. We have an image to maintain, don't we? I mean, aren't we at least trying to pretend we're the superpower in this world? I mean, why not just send Carson Daly over to the Middle East next time Cheney goes, huh? Or hey, hook up Freddie Prinze Jr. with Colin Powell next time he meets with NATO. I mean, hell! Let's hear what Freddie has to say, right?
Senator Barbara Boxer: Oh, great, Doug. Paris, do you know Republican Congressman Doug Ose from California? You don't? Great. You two will have so much to talk about. Bye.
Congressman Doug Ose: Barbara...
Paris: Ose, right?
Congressman Doug Ose: Yes, that's right.
Paris: Let's take a walk.
Quote from We've Got Magic to Do
Paris: Rory, I clocked in.
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.
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.
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!
