Luke: Just tell me you forbid her to see the bag boy. Lorelai: I did not forbid her to see the bag boy. Luke: Are you crazy? Lorelai: Well, he looks like he's moving up to produce, so he's suddenly become quite a catch. Luke: That kid is trouble.
Lorelai: I feel like this is one of those moments when I should be remembering all the great times I had with my dad, you know. The time he took me shopping for a Barbie or to the circus or fishing and my mind is a complete blank. Luke: Well I'm sure it happened. Lorelai: No it didn't. We never did any of that. He went to work, he came home, he read the paper, he went to bed, I snuck out the window. Simple. He was a very by the numbers guy. I was never very good with numbers. Luke: I'm sure he loves you. Lorelai: You know my dad is not a bad guy. Luke: I'm sure he's not. Lorelai: He lived his life the way he thought he was supposed to. He followed the rules taught to him by his non-fishing-non-Barbie-buying dad. He worked hard. He bought a nice house. He provided for my mom. All he asked in return was for his daughter to wear white dresses and go to cotillion and want the same life that he had. What a disappointment it must have been for him to get me. Luke: I can't imagine anyone seeing you as a disappointment.
