Quote from Lorelai in Super Cool Party People

Lorelai: I forgot how much fun it could be just to put makeup on. It's become so pragmatic, such drudgery. It's like all we use it for now is to look better.
Sookie: And why would the two of us ever need to look better?
Lorelai: Exactly. Whatever happened to the questionably attractive glories of Wet 'n' Wild blue eye shadow or crimping irons?
Sookie: Remember Sun-In and Aqua Net and Bonne Bell lip smackers? I used to love Bonne Bell lip smackers.
Lorelai: Well, who doesn't love a lip gloss that doubles as a necklace? And they smelled so great.
Sookie: Except once, I had the chocolate-fudge-flavored one, and in study hall, Trevor Fink ate the whole thing, and then he threw it up all over my copy of The Red Badge of Courage.
Lorelai: Well, we all had a Trevor Fink in our lives.


Quote from Rory in The Road Trip to Harvard

Lorelai: "This building is one component of a 13 million-volume collection housed in more than 90 different libraries. It's the oldest library in the US, and the largest academic library in the world." Breathe, breathe.
Rory: I am a failure.
Lorelai: What?
Rory: I am stupid.
Lorelai: Stop.
Rory: I am uninformed, ignorant, and I can't even think of a second synonym for 'uninformed'. I suck.
Lorelai: Honey.
Rory: Thirteen million volumes? I've read 300 books in my entire life, and I'm already 16? You know how long I would need to read 13 million books?
Lorelai: But honey, you don't have to read every one of them. Tuesdays With Morrie. Skip that. Who Moved My Cheese?? Stuff you already know.
Rory: But every kid coming to Harvard is inevitably reading books. And Different books. And I want to be able to converse intelligently with each of them. And I can't do that unless I read books. At least a few from every genre and subgenre.

Quote from Lorelai in So... Good Talk

Lorelai: [on the phone] Let's see how her trip has been since the last card. "Dear Lorelai, kicked a dog then punched a gypsy in the groin. Oh, that's nice."
Rory: Mom.
Lorelai: "Complained about the foie gras to a waiter whose yearly pay is less than I spend monthly on silver polish, then kicked another dog."
Rory: Come on.
Lorelai: "Tripped a nun, then burned down an orphanage."
Rory: Sounds like a busy itinerary.
Lorelai: And the sun sets on Apollo. [rips up post card]

Quote from Luke in P.S. I Lo...

Luke: It's Rachel's birthday. Don't say anything. She doesn't want anyone to know. She hates birthdays.
Lorelai: Not as much as she'll hate the potholders.
Luke: I don't know how to buy gifts. I don't like to buy gifts. I don't like getting gifts. I mean, this whole gift-giving-and-getting process is completely insane.
Lorelai: The rant begins.
Luke: I mean, suddenly, on a certain date the level of my affection for a person isn't measured by the way I treat them or what we share. [Lorelai yawns] Just because I didn't buy her furry slippers or a giant shoetree... all of a sudden, I suck.
