Paris Quote #127
Paris: Maybe I shouldn't go. I mean, what if I fall for him and he doesn't like me?
Rory: Then you'll find someone else.
Paris: But what if there is no one else?
Rory: Then you'll buy some cats.
Paris: I wish I knew if he was right for me, you know? So I don't put myself through all of this for nothing. I mean, women fall for men who are wrong for them all of the time, and then they get sidetracked from their goals. They give up careers and become alcoholics and, if you're Sunny von Bülow, wind up in a coma completely incapable of stopping Glenn Close from playing you in a movie.
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 Paris
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 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!
