Max: I am not kidding.
Lorelai: Good clue.

(to Max about his proposal) It should be magical. There should be music playing and romantic lighting and a subtle buildup to the popping of the big question. There should be a thousand yellow daisies and candles and a horse and I don't know what the horse is doing there unless you're riding it, which seems a little over the top, but it should be more than this.

Lorelai: Mm, check the living room.
Rory: Why would my tie be in the living room?
