Episode Quotes
(to a mother at the SAT prep class)
Paris: She's got a C average which means she's either lazy or stupid. I can work with either. Frankly sometimes stupid is easier. I can scare the stupid out of you, but the lazy runs deep.

Rory: So Logan and I were on the couch...
Lorelai: Wah, wah, wah!
Rory: Chachi, right?
Lorelai: Proud!

Rory: Tell us more about this racquetball.
Michel: Well, it's very simple: A four walled room, a racquet and a rubber ball.
Lorelai: Get to the good part - what are the clothes like?
Rory: Can we wear cute outfits?
Michel: I do!
Lorelai: I think racquetball sounds great!

Episode Goofs

During the scene where Lorelai and Rory are having coffee and discussing how they can not talk, it is obvious that Rory's cup is empty.
