Gilmore Girls Season 1 Quotes
Lorelai: So, what time does the judgmental express arrive?
Rory: Grandma gets here at noon.
Rachel: I might consider doing the whole mom thing if I could be guaranteed that I could get one just like her.
Lorelai: Oh you can, you just have to go to Sears.
(Luke walks over to Lorelai's table where Rachel is showing a picture she took of them)
Luke: What's that?
Lorelai: Oh, it's a picture of us.
Rory: Rachel took it.
Rachel: At the Firelight Festival.
Luke: Oh, sure, yeah. (He hands a plate to Lorelai) So, uh, here's your plate, no eyes.
Lorelai: Thank you.
Rachel: Do you wear contacts?
Lorelai: Me? No.
Rachel: God, you've got amazing eyes. (to Luke) Doesn't she?
Luke: Oh, yeah. Sure, I guess... I mean, they're, you know, placed good... symmetrical. I'm gonna get some more coffee.
Luke: So what was all about?
Lorelai: Oh nothing. We're just gonna go check out this old inn Rachel found.
Luke: Nothing. I didn't know you guys were friends.
Lorelai: Hm, well we're not really friends. I mean, I don't know her that well. But we're just hanging out. She seems really great.
Luke: Oh yeah, she is. She's great. She's just, you know, a lot different from you.
Lorelai: 'Cause I'm not really great?
Luke: No, you're great. Just in a different way.
Lorelai: In a not really great way?
Luke: That's not what I meant. The two of you are just completely different people. Both great, but I'm just a little surprised that, you know, you're different types of greatness are, you know, melding and you're comfortably great together.
Lorelai: Is this bothering you?
Luke: This conversation, yes.
Lorelai: No. Um, the idea of Rachel and I hanging out together. Is there some reason that's weird for you or something?
Luke: Why would it be?
Lorelai: No reason I can think of.
Luke: Okay, well then it's not weird.
Lorelai: Good, well I was just checking.
Luke: Okay, well then, you checked.
Lorelai: Okay. So are you gonna be pouring that coffee anytime or...
Lorelai: I'm glad it's not weird though because... (Luke spills coffee on the table)... that would be bad.
Luke: Oh, I'll get a rag.
Oh hey, Kirk. You gettin a cold? You know, you should try that Dyna-Meda-Chema-Themytol. Knocks it right out. But don't drive a forklift though, cause it'll make you drowsy.</i> Lorelai
Emily: (about Michel) What a charming man!
(Luke & Lorelai are in the storage room, talking about Rachel)
Lorelai: Do you wanna know what I think about this situation?
Lorelai: Are you sure?
Luke: Look, if you're gonna tell me at least help me unload.
Lorelai: Can I use the fun cutter thingy?
Luke: Not if you call it the fun cutter thingy.
Luke: Cut the box, not your hand.
Lorelai: Good tip, you should teach. (She cuts open one box) Ha! Fun!
Lorelai: Well, I don't know exactly what's going on in Rachel's head because I'm not a Vulcan, but from the way she talks about you and the way she smiles when your name comes up, I'm pretty sure that she's serious about staying in Stars Hollow this time.
Luke: Yeah, let me guess. Rachel told you she wanted to put down roots, that she's serious this time, that she's tired of the road, and realizes what's lacking in her nomadic existence.
Lorelai: She didn't use the phrase "nomadic existence", but basically yes, that's what she said.
Luke: I've heard the speech. I know the speech by heart.
Lorelai: Well, I think she means it this time.
Luke: You don't know her like I do.
Lorelai: I don't. But she seems sincere.
Luke: How do you know?
Lorelai: Her nose didn't grow.
Luke: Why are you taking her side?
Lorelai: I'm not taking her side.
Luke: Well it sounds like you're taking her side.
Lorelai: Well, wash out your ears, I'm not taking her side.
Luke: I mean you're practically pushing her on me.
Lorelai: I just want you to be happy.
Luke: And you know what makes me happy?
Lorelai: No, I just know that you've been carrying a torch for her for a really long time.
Luke: I have not been carrying a torch for her.
Lorelai: Well, you wanted this to happen.
Luke: How do you know what I wanted to happen?
Lorelai: Didn't you?
Luke: Yeah, I guess.
Lorelai: Okay. So here it is, right in front of you. Just take it. Take the plunge. She could be ready. Just jump in and believe her. Unless, you know, there's some other reason you don't want to.
Luke: Like what?
Lorelai: Like I... I don't know.
Luke: There's no other reason.
Lorelai: Okay, well, fine. Then there's no other reason.
Emily: I blame Peg Mosley.
Lorelai: Peg Mosley. Evil, evil woman.
Rory: What did Peg Mosley do?
Lorelai: She lured these two German children to her gingerbread house and then she tried to eat them.
(in the storage room at Luke's)
Lorelai: So, this is the fascinating storage area where fascinating acts of storage take place.
Luke: Yup, this is it.
Lorelai: Some good looking pickles.
Luke: What are you doing?
Lorelai: I'm admiring your pickles.
(Emily opens the door to the girls and sounds extatic)
Emily: Hello, hello, hello.
Lorelai: Wow, Mom, hi. (speaking to Rory) Uh, check the rubbing alcohol.
Emily: How was the drive?
Lorelai: The drive was fine.
Lorelai: (Observing that Emily doesn't let them in) The foyer looks great.
Emily: I have a surprise for you.
Lorelai: The rest of the house ran away?
Emily: Rory, come with me.
(Emily leads Rory away, leaving Lorelai by herself)
Lorelai: Okay, so, I'll... I'll follow you then. Great.
Paris: I just wanted to tell you again that I had so much fun last night.
Tristan: Yeah, after five messages on my answering machine, I kinda got that impression.
Lorelai: Mother, Grandma is a very old woman, I highly doubt that she's going to remember everything she ever bought you.
Emily: She will remember down to the very last shrimp fork and do you know why?
Lorelai: No. (to dogs) Do you guys know why?
Emily: Because she doesn't just give you a present, she 'gives' you a present and she tells you where to put it, how to use it, what it costs - for insurance purposes of course - and God forbid you should have a different opinion or you don't think it works in the space or you just get tired of waking up every morning with those horrifying animals staring at you!
Lorelai: (to the dogs) She's just upset.
Emily: Stop talking to the dogs!
