“I live in two worlds. One is a world of books. I’ve been a resident of Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County, hunted the white whale aboard the Pequod, fought alongside Napoleon, sailed a raft with Huck and Jim, committed absurdities with Ignatius J. Reilly, rode a sad train with Anna Karenina, and strolled down Swann’s Way. It’s a rewarding world, but my second one is by far superior. My second one is populated with characters slightly less eccentric but supremely real, made of flesh and bone, full of love, who are my ultimate inspiration for everything.”
– Rory’s valedictorian speech, “Those Are Strings, Pinocchio”

I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, I’ve never gotten a ticket, I’m healthy, I take care of myself, I floss. I never watch more than 30 minutes of television a night partly because I think it’s a waste of time and partly because there’s nothing on. I respect my parents, I do well in school, I never play video games in case they do someday prove that playing them can turn you into a serial killer. I don’t drink coffee. I hate soda because the carbonation freaks me out. I’m happy to give up meat if you feel strongly about it. I don’t mind wearing a tie. I enjoy playing those hymns on my guitar, and I really, really want to take your daughter to the prom.”
– Dave, giving his best shot to Mrs. Kim

“How are his friends?”
“Yes. Is there spin-off potential?”
– Madeline and Louise try to get the lowdown on Jamie from Rory

“By the way, I think you might be the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen.”
– Kirk, trying to ask Lorelai out

“It’s been four hours. Go home.”
“It’s boring at home. My TV’s broken.”
“So do something else.”
“Like what?”
“Read a book.”
“What book?
“Any book.”
“I’m gonna need a suggestion.”
“Moby Dick.
“That’s about the whale?”
“No. What else?”
“Forget it, just sit there.”
– Jess tries and fails to get Kirk to leave the diner

“Ladies, gentlemen, honored guests. Who owns the silver Volvo because you’re blocking me in?”
– Kirk politely tries to escape from Sookie’s wedding rehearsal, “I Can’t Get Started”

“I come to announce to one and all that the day we all thought would never get here has arrived.”
“The Day of Reckoning?”
– Taylor and Kirk, being Taylor and Kirk

    Wow that’s a lot of quotes. Yeah I have to admit… I’ve watched it. I’m not the kind to run to the TV and say “HOLD EVERYTHING! Gilmore Girls is on!!” but if I’m flipping through channels and it happens to be the only thing on, and I don’t particularly want to turn off the TV yet, I’ll watch it. They do have rather… um… intriguing dialogs. I’d love to meet people who talk like that in real life; unfortunately few people are that witty. Nice eye-candy, too 😉
