Trix: Oh I'm sure she is. It's you I'm worried about.
Lorelai : But -
Trix: (to Emily) And I'm sure she gets it from you.
Emily: But -

Emily (about Trix): Well I'd better get out there before she leaves me here.
Lorelai: I'm sure you'll be sorry to see her go.
Emily (sarcastically): Oh yes, I don't know what I'll do with myself.

(about tea she had with Emily and Trix) Yeah well once you're done with those little sandwiches, there's not reason to pretend you like tea anymore.


Lorelai: What would Miss Manners say about this?
Emily: If she met your grandmother, she'd understand.

Paris: Read my manifesto, I want your thoughts.
Rory: First thought - lose the word 'manifesto.'
Paris: Too cabin-in-the-woods?
Rory: Don't open your mail.
Paris: Right.

(to Emily and Lorelai after the were arguing) Raising your voice during high tea, who ever heard of such a thing. It's like Fergie all over again.


Lorelai: (about the rabbit they're having for dinner) You brought it with you from London?
Trix: Yes.
Lorelai: What, did you get it a seat?
Richard: Dry ice.
Lorelai: Wow! That's inventive.

Lorelai: There's food money on the table and I defrosted some yummy chocolate cake specially for you this morning, and I'll be home early, and did I forget anything?
Rory: Don't be mean to Grandma!
Lorelai: Yeah, yeah, broken record.

Rory: Uh, Paris? What are these cards that fell out of your jacket?
Paris: Oh yeah. Those are notes for tonight.
Rory: Notes?
Paris: Yeah. Just some reference points really. You know, subjects to bring up in case the conversation lags.
Rory: Well can I suggest that you leave this one about the Spanish Inquisition out?

Madeline: (to Paris) Looks like we're going to have to do the Pink Ladies makeover on you.
Louise: We'll turn you from a sweet Sandy to a sluty Sandy. Dancing at the school fair with high heels, black spandex and permed hair.

Rory: I swear to God.
Paris: Are you atheist?
Rory: Excuse me?
Paris: Because that affects the validity of your swearing to God.

Rory: (about Paris) She's going out on a date with Tristan.
Lorelai: How'd that happen?
Rory: I did a little matchmaking.
Lorelai: (in a Ricky Ricardo voice) Lucy, how many times have I told you not to butt into other people's business?
Rory: Never.
Lorelai: (normal voice) Good going.

Gilmore Girls Season 1 Quotes

Lorelai: Wait, close your eyes and breathe. I smell snow.
Rory: Ah, it's that time of year.
Lorelai: Can't you smell it?
Rory: You know, it's like dogs and high-pitched noises. I think it's something only you can smell.
(Rory sits down next to Lorelai and pulls a blanket over the both of them)
Lorelai: I love snow.
Rory: Really, I had no idea.
Lorelai: Everything's magical when it snows, everything looks pretty. The clothes are great. Coats, scarves, gloves, hats.
Rory: Thermal underwear, wool socks, ear flaps.

Dean: You said 'boyfriend'.
Rory: No! I just meant boyfriend in the sense that the whole defending me thing was very boyfriendy, but only in the broadest sense of the word, which doesn't even apply at all here.
