Episode Quotes
Sookie: What if what I'm wishing for is actually coming true?
Lorelai: Quick, wish for a Sephora within walking distance!

Lorelai: [Rory] took a little time off Yale.
Christopher: And the apocolypse is when? This week, next week?

Lane: Mother and daugther are back together again. All is right with the world.

Rory: I'm coming back to Yale.
Paris: Of course you are. What would you do without an education? Drive a forklift?

Rory: They never invited their priest over to try to talk you out of having sex.
Lorelai: Five times! And on the last one they triple teamed me with a Priest, a Rabbi, and a Mormon Missionary. I made so many jokes that night I should have had a microphone and a brick wall behind me.

Christopher: You're too un-materialistic. I've always thought that.
Lorelai: If it makes you feel better, I'll talk to Rory. See if she wants a brewery or a Bentley.
Christopher: A castle, don't forget the castle.
Lorelai: I'll mention the castle.
Christopher: It doesn't have to be in Germany, Ireland, Scotland, Czech Republic. It could be in Narnia.

Lorelai: Ladies & gentlemen, Rory Gilmore!
Rory: Hi there!
Luke: Rory you're back! You look good! Healthy and happy, here with your mother, both of you here. That's great! Yay! I don't think I've ever said 'yay' before. Sounded weird.
Lorelai: A little.

Lane: You blew it, Zack. You blew it for us. We were supposed to get a record deal tonight, or at least get noticed!
Zack: Maybe...maybe that's why band members shouldn't date.
Lane: (walking inside) Yeah...maybe that's...why band members shouldn't date.

Honor: (referring to Logan) I almost threw a lamp at him when he told me you two broke up!
Rory: He...he told you we broke up?

Christopher: I set G.G. up with funds for private nursery school, prep school and college and grad school and post grad school and Ph.D. school and a wedding and a divorce if she wants it and another wedding, or she can buy a bunch of cats and a life time supply of Twizzlers and popcorn if that's her choice but she's all set. And now I want to take care of you - you and Rory.

Christopher: So how long have you been engaged?
Lorelai: Who told you?
Christopher: Your finger.
Lorelai: (to her finger) Oh, blabber mouth.
Christopher: It's a good thing. I want you to be happy. I always have.

Michel: (excitedly) Rory!
Rory: Wow, hi Michel.
Michel: (embarrassed) Hi.
Lorelai: That was weird.
Michel: She just surprised me, that's all.

Episode Goofs
While talking about the oppressive nature of the elder Gilmore household, Lorelai says she was "oppressed one, class of '85". However, in previous episodes, Lorelai states that Rory was born in 1984 and in the episode "Dear Emily and Richard", it is established that Lorelai left home after Rory was born. Therefore, Lorelai couldn't have been living at the elder Gilmore's house in 1985.

Rory says she has to make calls to check up on her status for spring semester. However, it was established in an earlier episode that Yale is on a quarter system.

Cultural References
Visual: Tambourine player

The addition of a tambourine player is a reference to the movie DiG! in which BJM, the band that Joel Gion (the tambourine player) is a part of, brawls with the Dandy Warhols.

Lorelai: Quick, wish for a Sephora within walking distance!

Sephora is a brand of high end makeups and other cosmetics.

Lorelai: Hey! Make a noise, so I don't think you pulled an Elvis.

Lorelai is referencing this because Rory is being quiet in the bathroom and Elvis Presley overdosed in the bathroom.

Lorelai: Babette recorded her cats' meows, did some editing, and cut a recording of them singing Ring of Fire.

"Ring of Fire" is a popular song written by June Carter Cash and recorded by Johnny Cash.

Christopher: It doesn't have to be in Ireland. It could be in Germany, Czech Republic, Scotland ... Narnia.

Narnia is a the fictional land from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe series by C.S. Lewis.
