Lane Quote #160
Lane: So, of course, I panicked. What does this mean? I mean, when I come home ten minutes late from bible study, she has a cow. But I call her drunk, tell her I'm at a party, I'm a drummer in a band, and I'm in love with a non-Korean... I expected there to be backup aunts, uncles, cousins pulled out from villages I've never heard of, but nothing.
Rory: I don't understand.
Lane: So I go upstairs to make sure everything's okay. I look in her room and she's in bed asleep.
Lane: Then this morning, I get up, I go in the kitchen where she's making breakfast and I say, "Good morning, Mama."
Lane: She turns around, looks right at me and says, "Good morning, Lane."
Lane: And those were the last words she's said to me all day.
Rory: So she's freezing you out?
Lane: No, it was more Stepford than cold. You know, very calm, very serene.
Quote from Miss Patty
Miss Patty: Now it all starts.
Lorelai: What all starts, honey?
Miss Patty: First Fran, then the rest of us.
Lorelai: Patty, it's not the plague. It was just her time.
Miss Patty: I can't go.
Lorelai: Yes, you can. Come on.
Miss Patty: No, just leave me.
Lorelai: I'm gonna get her to the church.
Rory: I'll meet you there.
Lorelai: Come on, let's go.
Miss Patty: You know, it's times like these that you realize what is truly important in your life. I'm so glad I had all that sex. [sobs]
Quote from Luke
Luke: I'm in bed. I have ten more minutes to sleep. Not a lot of time in the grand scheme of things, but still, ten minutes is ten minutes. You know what I mean.
Lorelai: Sure, yeah.
Rory: Ten minutes is great.
Luke: And then the phone rings, and it just rings and rings and rings and rings, so I pick it up.
Lorelai: And then hopefully got your hearing checked.
Luke: Can I finish my story?
Lorelai: I'm just saying, that's a lot of rings.
Luke: And on the other end of the phone is someone named John who says he's Kyle's father, and Kyle threw a party last night without permission. And two guys got into a fight and tore the place apart, so John wants me to come down and take a look at the damage and discuss some sort of solution to the problem of the damages. Now, I don't know John, and I certainly don't know Kyle, but I do know someone who would get into a fight at a party and leave the place completely trashed. It's a wild guess, but I think his name rhymes with Tess. So here I am, heading in there to talk to John about Kyle and discuss what is to be done about the Hummel.
Lorelai: The what?
Quote from Tippecanoe and Taylor, Too
Lane: [on the phone] Need I mention the rock 'n' roll casualties from intra-band dating?
Rory: I know they're numerous.
Lane: Not that there's not success stories. I mean, you've got your Cramps, your Yo La Tengo, your Kim and Thurstons.
Rory: Sonny and Cher, the Early Years.
Lane: Plus, you've got bands that have survived breakups, No Doubt.
Rory: Wish they hadn't.
Lane: X, Supertramp, The White Stripes. But in the negative, you have...
Rory: Sonny and Cher, the Later Years.
Lane: Jefferson Airplane, Fleetwood Mac. I know of two country music stars whose backup singers shot them in the groin.
Rory: Whoa. That's wicked hate.
Quote from Application Anxiety
Rory: She's writing her drummer-seeks-rock-band ad.
Lane: And it's not reading right to me. Could you guys look it over?
Rory: Let's see. "Drummer with strong beat seeks band into the Accelerators, the Adolescents, the Adverts, Agent Orange, the Angelic Upstarts, the Agnostic Front, Ash..."
Rory: You went alphabetically.
Lane: Seemed tidy.
Lorelai: And a little OCD.
Rory: And a little long.
Lane: I can't make cuts.
Rory: It's three pages, single spaced – make cuts.
Lane: But this is the cut-down version. I mean, just from the letter A, I excluded AC/DC, the Animals, and A-Ha, footnoted as a guilty pleasure.
