Application Anxiety is the 3rd episode of Season 3 of Gilmore Girls.


Hackneyed, perfunctory, run-of-the-mill - that's Rory. When her Harvard application arrives, her confidence disappears. And soon three generations of Gilmore girls share one giant anxiety attack.

Rory(about the TV show they're watching) It's on my top fifty best.
Lorelai – Yeah, right after Holmes & Yo-Yo and Hee Haw Honeys.
Rory – Sylvia Plath?
Lorelai – Might send the wrong message.
Rory – The "sticking her head in the oven" thing?
Lorelai – Hm, so, circle all of them except sports. Oh, they want a picture. How about the one of us sticking our heads through the carved out holes of Johnny Bravo and SpongeBob Squarepants?
Rory – So, what are you doing Saturday?
Dean – Just my usual chores.
Rory – Your usual chores, John Boy?
Paris – I wanted Charlie Rose.
Paris – And all Mr. Hunter said is, Paris, this isn't The Beatles at Shea Stadium.
Emily – And now it's the in thing for young Hollywood celebrities to go to universities. What do they call themselves, the Brat Pack?
Lorelai – We could call it Tangerinorama or Banafana-fofanna-rama or something.
Taylor – I am telling you Luke, if we don't quickly furnish these skateboarding Z-boys with a moral distraction they are going to turn Stars Hollow into Dogtown.
Luke – And when I die, I'm gonna have them freeze me next to Ted Williams.
Rory – You're no Danny Gans.
