Morey – Charlie Parker was late to everything[1]

Morey Dell is a recurring character on Gilmore Girls. He is portrayed by Ted Rooney.


Morey is the tall, mostly silent husband of Babette Dell, one of Lorelai's neighbors. He is a musician and is usually seen wearing a black pork pie hat and sunglasses. Morey gets on well Rory and Lorelai, and is generally a calm person. He is very clear about his view on society, often aligning with and expressing civil rights statements.


  • He plays piano, and his Thelonious Monk puts Babette in a trance.
  • Morey detests being early to events, which he finds uncool.
