Gilmore Girls Season 2 Episode 11: "Secrets and Loans" Quotes

Luke: I can help you with that.
Lorelai: You can?

Kirk: You have termites.
Kirk: Tens of thousands of them. Subterranean, dry wood, the whole gamut.
Kirk: Four of them crawled up my noise.
Lorelai: Okay, Kirk.
Kirk: It happens all the time when you're upside down. To them the nostril looks just like another hollow passage in the wood. They're not too bright.
Kirk: (about the cost of exterminating the termites) Well, I haven't done the exact estimate, but I'd say somewhere in the neighborhood of fifteen thousand dollars.
Lorelai: (laughs) Tell it to move to another neighborhood.
Kirk: I'm sorry?
Lorelai: Fifteen thousand dollars?
Rory: We're never eating again.
