Luke: There's nothing like a wedding to screw up a family. Lorelai: Well in my case, there's nothing like a family to screw up a family. Luke: It starts out all very nice, two people promising to be together forever, I'll die when you die, my life meant nothing till you used my toothbrush. Then you start planning the wedding. Aunt Junie's allergic to milk. Uncle Momo's off his meds... Lorelai: Junie and Momo? Luke: They're names. Lorelai: Of a retired circus couple? Luke: Then the ceremony's a disaster, a ring is lost, someone can't sit there with their ex, someone's drunk, someone's sleeping with someone else's wife, and somone's walked off with a gift or two. Lorelai: You know, the Gettysburg Address was only one page long. And that was about a war.
Lorelai: What about Dad? Emily: We're starting without him. Lorelai: Why? He's the one with the six o'clock flight. We don't have to go anywhere. We could stay all night. Kick back, do some jello shots, play light as a feather, sitff as a board... Richard: You started without me!
