Lorelai Quote #2053
Lorelai: Hey, I've been looking for this. Check it out.
Luke: Riding the Bus with My Sister.
Lorelai: Rosie O'Donnell plays a retarded woman who's obsessed with riding the bus, and Andie MacDowell is her uptight, big-city sister.
Lorelai: Yeah, and it gets better. In the ads I saw, the Rosie character was calling herself the sheriff and bragging about her sex life and buying toilet seats. And Anjelica Huston directed it. Maerose directed it.
Luke: Okay, fine. Watch it tonight after I leave. Then you can dump it tomorrow.
Lorelai: You kidding? You don't just sit down and watch a movie like this. This is a Friday-night special. I'd have to have takeout, pizza, red vines, mallomars... the works. Plus, there's no way I would watch this by myself. This is exactly the kind of movie I would watch with someone... Someone else, you know?
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: I'm keeping what I need.
Luke: You need an episode of Magnum P.I. from 1986?
Lorelai: Of course not. That tape is mislabeled. That's a Knots Landing from 1981. All the women are held hostage at gunpoint during Ginger's baby shower. Classic.
Luke: 21 Jump Street Season 1. You do not need this.
Lorelai: I need my Jump Street.
Luke: So buy the DVDs. It'll save you a ton of space.
Lorelai: No, the DVDs won't have the commercials on them. The original commercials, which is half the fun.
Spuds Mackenzie, Clara Peller, "Nothing comes between me and my Calvins." I mean, they don't make them like that anymore.
Luke: You're gonna be one of those weird old people who hoards empty film canisters and laundry measuring scoops.
Lorelai: Uh, gonna be?
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: Oh, look at that. America's Castles, the special Florida edition. Seen it five times, keeping it.
Luke: One thing.
Lorelai: Oh, The History of Paper, a documentary by Ted Burns, distant relative of Ken Burns. Oh, seven hours, dull, dull, dull. Keeping it!
Luke: I'm not going up.
Lorelai: Good. Please Don't Eat the Daisies, seasons two and four. I've been looking for this.
Quote from Afterboom
Lorelai: Okay. Wait. Just wait. We can still leave.
Lorelai: Rory, right now is the point in the horror movie where the entire audience is yelling, "Don't go in there."
Quote from Let the Games Begin
Emily: What on earth does Frank Lloyd Wright have to do with my salad?
Richard: And your walnuts.
Lorelai: Mrs. Wright apparently had this major problem with her help. She was very rough on them and they totally hated her. So this guy who had worked for her forever, he had finally had enough. I believe the incident was over walnuts, wasn't it, honey?
Rory: The exact cause has not been proven.
Lorelai: Anyhow, Mrs. Wright invites this whole posse of people over for dinner and they're all sitting around eating, and Mr. Disgruntled Servant Guy goes outside and locks all the doors and windows and douses the whole house in gasoline and sets the place on fire.
Emily: My goodness.
Lorelai: So the house is on fire, and people are freaking out, so they run to the doors but the doors are locked, so a few of them try to get out through the windows, but Mr. Angry-Puss is standing outside with an ax hacking them to death and so they all died.
Emily: Why on earth would you tell me that story?
Lorelai: All I'm saying is, sometimes eating a walnut is preferable to getting hacked to death or set on fire during dinner.
Emily: One of these days I'm going to make you eat in your room.
