- Paris — I'm wide awake. It's your fault. You owe me Boggle.
- Kirk — "Sweat is the curse of the b-boy." Mos Def. So, are you feeling better?
- Lorelai — Man. They sure talked fast in these things.
- Lorelai — You like Yanni?
- Guest — Hate him with every fiber of my being.
- Michel — Teeth? Throat? Colons? They don't have these things either? Unless they are Brides of Chucky.
- LORELAI — Was it Katie Couric? She seems very dark to me.
- PARIS — Don't forget the Raisin Bran. It's good for you. Keeps you moving.
- RORY — Whatever that means. Ew, I just got what that means!
- PARIS — Cognitive skills are slow today. Grab some Corn Flakes. Nietzsche and Wittgenstein went ape guano over Corn Flakes.
- (referring to Neitzche quote: "Broad daylight; breakfast; return of cheerfulness and bons sens; Plato blushes for shame; all free spirits run riot."—Twilight of the Idols/The Anti-Christ; Wittgenstein liked rye bread and cheese, and is claimed to have said "I don't care what I eat so long as it is always the same").
- Rory — They make you smart, German and depressed. Why do they have so much Wheat Chex? It doesn't go with anything.
- Paris — Wheat Chex are sort of the pumpernickel bread of the cereal world.
- Rory — Well put. So what combo are you thinking today?
- Paris — Cap'n Crunch over a foundation of Rice Krispies, with a perimeter of Shredded Wheat.
- Paris — With the hair, and the chin like he's the fourth Bee Gee?
- Paris — We're better than this, you and me. We're the children of Emma Goldman and Hillary Clinton. Strong, independent. We're better than this.
- Lorelai — People are gonna be all over you with questions.
- Rory — Then they'll feel the wrath of the green destiny!
