Sookie – And that’s the thing. They still say, "And now the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather."
Paris – Madeline, you should point out to the faculty that their annoying custom of teaching is distracting you from more important things like nail-filing and daydreaming about marrying Ryan Phillippe.
Louise – We have it for about two hours, then one of the Manson girls gets it.
Paris – My Thanksgiving is turning into a Wes Craven movie.
Lorelai – We're not Michelle Kwaning this!
Jess – Yeah, or we can wear Three Stooges masks all the time, that way no one will know who we are.
Rory – I can be Curly.
Jess – I’ll be Moe.
Jess – I'm Frank at the Sands.
LorelaiMy arms are too short to box with Mrs. Kim.
Lorelai – Where's Quasimodo?
Rory – What's the oil for?
Lorelai – For pouring on Visigoths.
Claude – Well, it’s all Mickey Mouse this and Mickey Mouse that, you know. They want to die.
