Haunted Leg is the 2nd episode of Season 3 of Gilmore Girls.


A night at the fights, Rory has it out with Jess, and Lorelai goes a rhetorical round or two with Christopher. But Lorelai has another chance at swept-off-her-feet romance: Kirk asks her out on a date.

  • The book that Jess is reading in the diner is "A Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole.
  • The title of the episode comes from a scene in which Lorelai complains about having a cold. She says everyone gets a cold and she wishes she could wake up and say "Hey everybody I've got Haunted Leg."

Lorelai – And apparently a big Annie Oakley fan.
Michel – I am doing nothing. Ben, however, has dropped dead from laughter.
LorelaiI'll join a local community theater and I'll drive you to soccer. It'll work for many years, until the FBI comes to get me, and by that time you're on your own.
Rory – I have something to tell you.
Lorelai – Is it about Vince Foster?
Lorelai – When I was in school Linda Lee was class treasurer and she could not keep her knees closed if they were magnetized. Hanes should have given her a endorsement deal.
Sookie – You don't dictate to an artist, you don't tell him what to do. I mean, no one ever walked up to Degas and said, "Hey, pal, easy with the dancers, enough already. Draw a nice fruit bowl once in a while, will ya?"
Lorelai – Rule number two – no pageboy haircuts.
Lorelai: – Saying yes to lunch with my mother is like saying "Sounds fun!" to a ride with Clemenza.
Francie – You're obviously the Meyer Lansky behind this organization.
Francie – I want you to go back to Margaret Thatcher and tell her to play ball...she'll make Jimmy Carter look like Martin Sheen.
Francie – Wise up, Goldilocks.
Rory – What are we, French skating judges?
Francie – This is politics. If you've got a problem, tell it to Noam Chomsky.
Emily – How is your Caesar salad dressing prepared?
Luke – I'd have to call Paul Newman and ask him.
Madeline – ...and every year people wind up with those VH1 "Before they were stars" pictures, and I for one would like to stop the humiliation.
LouiseHelmut Newton is my godfather.
Paris – You want the first stand I make to be a fashion choice? It would be my gays in the military.
Paris – But the next genius that comes up with a brilliant plan to put an Elizabeth Arden in the chemistry class can bite my ass.
Jess – Plus the two of you walking around the other day like some damn Andy Hardy movie.
