Paris – You have to go to college.
LouisePrincess Grace didn't go to college.
Paris – Thank you for the history lesson, A.J. Benza
Lorelai – He's the one with the early plane. We don't have to go anywhere tomorrow. We can stay all night. Have a party, do some Jell-O shots, play "Light as a feather, stiff as a board."
Lorelai – I have hit a level of perfection that has rarely been seen outside the Victoria's Secret catalog.
Lorelai – Yeah, well, by the time I could get my jaw off the ground, Speed Racer had taken my plate.
Lorelai – You know, the Gettysburg Address was only one page long, and that was about a war.
Rory – Why don't you go on inside and you and my mother can continue the 'Rory's building a house' routine and when that gets boring you can move on over to Who's on First?
Rory – Funny, I never pictured you as a Bob Vila kind of girl.
Rory – Paris has been accumulating these things since she could walk. I mean, she has a list of good deeds that could bump Mother Teresa off the Harvard list.
Michel – If I eat that, I cannot have my Boca Burger later.
Rory – I will be tying yellow ribbons 'round the old oak trees
Lorelai – These are women from countries that have dictatorships and civil wars and death squads and all of that they survived, but 5 minutes working for Emily Gilmore and people are begging for Castro
Lorelai – Hey, whatever happened to Xuxa?
