Emily Quote #405
[Lorelai dials the phone and is rendered speechless when she hears her mother's voice:]
Emily: Hello? Hello? Who are you looking for? Did you dial the wrong number? You know, it's very rude to dial someone and then just sit there on the phone without so much as a grunt or a moan. I mean, as far as perverted phone calls go, this is a very poor one.
Lorelai: [sighs] Mom, hello.
Quote from Rory
Logan: [answers phone] Hello?
Rory: Listen. You're going to be getting a note from the Gilmores sometime soon. Maybe in the mail, maybe hand delivered tonight. For all I know, a carrier pigeon is heading for your room as we speak. You might want to open your window.
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: [on the phone] Wow, congratulations.
Rory: It's a pretty amazing opportunity.
Lorelai: Yeah, sounds like it. You'll be having lunch with the off-bet editors from the Times. Hanging out with Peter Jennings. Dan Rather will be valet parking your car.
Rory: Yeah, it's more likely that I'll be pulling wire reports off the AP machine, but sure.
Quote from I Am Kayak, Hear Me Roar
Emily: It's like a canoe.
Lorelai: What's like a canoe?
Emily: You're just paddling along in a canoe.
Lorelai: Mother, have you ever been in a canoe?
Lorelai: Well, I just can't picture you in a canoe.
Emily: Your father and I have been paddling a canoe together for years. Only now, he's dropped the paddle. He just dropped it. Not only that, but now the canoe is going in circles. Without your father there, I'm paddling on my side and the canoe is spinning in circles, and the harder I paddle, the faster it spins, and it's hard work, and I'm getting tired.
Quote from Driving Miss Gilmore
Lorelai: Here we go.
Emily: What is this?
Lorelai: This is my car.
Emily: We can't go in this. We have to take the other car.
Lorelai: What other car? No, Mom, that's not a car. That's a rap-video set.
Emily: I ordered it specially. It has the darkest windows available. They say it's the car Jay-Z uses when he's in town. I assume that's an entertainer of some sort. The windows are bulletproof. They kept saying that as if it's a selling point. I told them I was not paying extra for bulletproof windows. I haven't been strafed in years.
