Lorelai – And then take the craziest mother-daughter title from Judy and Liza
Lane – You know, it's people like you who are destroying the music industry!
Rory – Oh, now. Britney's gotta shoulder some of the blame
Kirk – Yes, he said I have tinnitus. I looked it up on the web at "Celebrities Who Share Your Disease" and found that William Shatner is likewise afflicted
Lorelai – Really, Kirk and Captain Kirk?
Kirk – The irony wasn't lost on me
Lorelai – All those years of watching Hart to Hart are about to pay off
Lorelai – Okay, I'm out. What's your plan, Clyde?
William – Hey, it's Madeleine Albright
