Gilmore Girls: I Get A Sidekick Out of You

With Lane's wedding rapidly approaching, Rory and Lorelai plan a bachelorette party, but their plans end up falling through, as does Zach's bachelor party, so the two groups party together in a parking lot. Later, Lorelai tries to find a date since Luke cannot attend. She tries to get Michel to go with her, but he gets Celine Dion tickets and cannot attend. Rory suggests that Lorelai take Chris, and Chris immediately agrees. Meanwhile, Grandma Kim arrives for the wedding, not knowing that Lane is a 7th Day Adventist, not a Buddhist like she is. After the wedding and several shots of tequila, Lorelai collapses and Christopher takes care of her.

Episode Quotes
(Grandma Kim's taxi pulls away)
Mrs. Kim: Go!
(Everyone starts running; Lorelai and Christopher stand in the middle, confused)
Lorelai: Whoa! What the hell is happening? Are there bulls coming out of there?
Christopher: We would have heard the China breaking.
Lorelai: My God!
Rory: Why aren't you running?
Lorelai: Well, why should we be running?
Rory: To get to the church.
Lorelai: For what?
Rory: For the wedding.
Christopher: I thought that this was the wedding.
Rory: This is the grandmother's wedding. Now we do the mother's wedding.
Lorelai: Why do we have to run?
Rory: Because there's 58 seats and 62 Koreans.
(Lorelai grabs Christopher and starts running)
Lorelai: Oh boy! Go!

(As they are running towards the church)
Sookie: Nice day for a wedding.
Lorelai: Beautiful.
Jackson: Perfect weather.
Sookie: Why are we running?
Lorelai: 58 seats, 62 Koreans.
Sookie: (to Jackson) Run for me, baby.
Jackson: I'm on it.

(in the crowded church)
Lorelai: It's a mad house in here. How did you get all these seats together?
Miss Patty: Honey, I've been here all night.
Sookie: You're kidding. Why?
Miss Patty: 58 seats and 62 Koreans? Please.

Lorelai: Lorelai Gilmore, disappointing mothers since 1968.

Lorelai: Mrs. Kim, I'd like you to meet Christopher Hayden. He's Rory's father. And a man.
Christopher: Did that really need clarification?

Mrs. Kim: Marriage is a job Lane. There are rewards that come with this job but there are also sacrafices. There are things you are going to have to do.
Lane: Things?
Mrs. Kim: Terrible things.
Lane: Mama, you don't have to ...
Mrs. Kim: You need to hear this. You need to know what to expect. It will start early.
Lane: What will?
Mrs. Kim: The man's expectations. It starts early, at the wedding actually. At the wedding you are going to have to kiss him.
Lane: Mama!
Mrs. Kim: Then you will be expected to share a bed tonight and when you are in that bed you have to do it with this boy. You're just going to have to do it. Hopefully, if your lucky like me, you'll only have to do it once.

Episode Goofs
Lorelai tells Christopher that Lane is the first of Rory's friends to get married. However, this isn't true. In season 4's "Chicken or Beef?", Dean, Rory's longtime friend and boyfriend, married Lindsay, making him the first of Rory's friends to be married.
