Quote of the Day

(Lorelai has been set up on a awful blind date by her mother and has resorted to climbing out her old bedroom window when her father walks in…)

Richard: Lorelai, your mother wants to know if…

Lorelai: Hi daddy. Okay, I know this is bad. And I know this probably brings back all the horrible aspects of my childhood life for you. And see, I’m really sorry that we fought last week, and I’m really sorry that you’re so disappointed in me, and I really wish there was something I can do to fix that, but there probably isn’t and I can accept that because I am an adult now and I am proud of who I have become. But I am begging you, please, please do not make me go back down there because that guy is boring.

Richard: Emily, she’s not up here!

Lorelai: Thank you Daddy.

Quote of the Day

(in the middle of an awkward dinner conversation)

Lorelai: I hate president Bush.

Straub: What?

Emily: Lorelai!

Christopher: Oh boy.

Lorelai: He’s stupid and his face is too tiny for his head and I just want to toss him out.

Straub: That is the leader of our country young lady.

Richard: Ignore her. 

Francine: His face is too tiny for his head, what kind of thing is that to say?

Straub: I see your daughter is just as out of control as ever.

Quote of the Day

Lorelai: What’s going on?

Richard: Oh, your mother and I have just secured a place on Martha’s Vineyard.

Rory: Really, that’s great!

Lorelai: I thought you lost your old place.

Emily: We did. But this afternoon we found out that Arthur Roundtree had died.

Richard: He’d been drinking.

Emily: So we got on the phone and snatched that place up.

Richard: Oh, it’s a fine piece of property.

Emily: Much better than our usual place.

Lorelai: The both of you are going directly to hell, I hope you know that.

Richard: Well, at least we’ll be well rested.

Lorelai: Touché.

Quote of the Day

Emily: So what exactly is going on between the two of you?

Luke: Nothing. Really. We’re friends, that’s it.

Emily: You’re idiots, the both of you.

Gilmore Girls — Season 1: Episode 10 — “Forgiveness and Stuff”

Quote of the Day


Emily: Where are you going?

Rory: To the dance.

Emily: You do not go running out the door when a boy honks.

Lorelai: Mom, it’s fine.

Emily: It certainly is not fine. This is not a drive through. She’s not fried chicken.

Rory: But I told him to honk and I’d meet him out there. We agreed.

Emily: I don’t care what you told him. If he wants to take you out, he will walk up to this door, and know, and say ‘good evening,’ and come inside for a moment like any civilized human being would know to do.

Lorelai: Now, Mom, this is silly, I have met him already.

Emily: Well I haven’t.

Lorelai: Yeah, but–

Emily: We will wait until he comes to the door.

Rory: He doesn’t know he’s supposed to.

Emily: He will figure it out.

(They wait in silence. Dean honks again.)

Emily: He’s not a very bright boy, is he?
