  • Lane moves out of the Kim house.
  • One of the few episodes where Emily and Lorelai have a real conversation.







Lorelai – Don't worry, it's just a working title. Baz Luhrmann's directing.
Lorelai – It's just when I picture letter writing, I picture Charles Dickens.
Rory – How very The L-Word.
Lorelai – No, I didn't, because our once-wonderful relationship -- envy of all the world, more intimate than that of the naked couple in the "love is..." cartoons -- has degenerated into e-mail correspondence.
Christine – I love the floorboard thing! It's so Hogan's Heroes.
Christine – I thought my mom was harsh, but your mom makes the guy from Joy Division look like one of the Teletubbies.
Lane – I'm not Yoda. So if you're looking for a mentor, call the Dalai Lama.
Lorelai – This is the least amount of fun I've ever had, barring the time we went to Mummenschanz.
Lorelai – "Emily the Strange" with the black cat and the boots made for kicking.
Lorelai – Me wants them! My precious!!
