(after hanging up her cell phone)
Lorelai: Oh, we gotta go.
Christopher: What's wrong?
Lorelai: My mother's in jail. This night keeps on getting better and better.
Cop: License and registration, please.
Emily: Why do you need to see my license and registration? I wasn’t speeding.
Cop: You were talking on a cell phone, ma’am.
Emily: I don’t see how that’s any of your concern. Do my bills go to your office?
Cop: It is illegal in the state of Connecticut to talk on a cell phone while operating a vehicle.
Emily: Well, that’s absurd! I can’t talk on my own cell phone in my own car?
Cop: License and registration, ma’am.
Emily: If I can manage to drink a cup of hot coffee while driving, I can certainly manage to talk on a cell phone, or is drinking coffee illegal, too? Can I listen to the radio? Can I open the glove compartment? Perhaps you should outlaw scratching your nose; that would cut down on accidents.
Cop: Ma’am, have you been drinking?
Lorelai: Oh my gosh, am I going with you to college?!
Rory: Excuse me?
Lorelai: You totally want me to come to Yale with you, don't you?
Rory: What? No!
Lorelai: Then why are you packing all of my clothes, (pulls a shirt out of Rory's bag) my pink shirt?!
Rory: (takes the shirt from Lorelai) Where'd that come from?
Lorelai: (digging though the bag) Oh my goodness, that is so nice of you to think of me in school. (grabs out a skirt) My sweet skirt! I hope you brought a toothbrush cause boy, oh boy, are we gonna have fun! (pulls out some more clothes) My cozy sweater!
Lorelai: I'm just so glad you were with me tonight, I mean, anybody else who would have seen me laughing as I bailed my mother out of jail, just would have thought I was completely deranged.
Christopher: Well, I know you're degranged. But for completely different reasons.
Emily: Yes, it's all quite amusing isn't it? My being arrested, held behind bars, manhandled and patted down. Hardy har!
Lorelai: Do you mind if I turn on the music, Mom?
Emily: That's fine.
Lorelai: What're you in the mood for? "Jail House Rock?" "Folsom Prison Blues?"
Emily: You're very funny Lorelai.
Lorelai: No, no, no, I know, I know - "Working on the Chain Gang!"
(to the prison guards)
Emily: Oh, thank you for giving me things that already belong to me! Well you can all be very proud of yourselves, you're doing a crack job, you finally got menace to society Emily Gilmore off the streets. You'll be hearing from my lawyer.
Lorelai: Snakes are gross. Snakes are scary and slithery and do you know where snakes do not belong?
Christopher: On a plane?
Lorelai: They do not belong on a plane.
Christopher: It's not an ideal situation.
Lorelai: They do not belong anywhere except in cages, stuck in safes burried deep, deep underground. I hate snakes.
Christopher: So I'm gathering.
Lorelai: With their gross no legged bodies and their scaly, scaly skin, and their wiggling and their hissing.
Christopher: Okay, Lore, I respect your very valid feelings about snakes. But I have to say, we were fairly warned.
Lorelai: No. No. A movie should not just be its title. Driving Miss Daisy didn't all take place in a car, Dances With Wolves wasn't one long wolf dance. But this was nothing but snakes. snakes, relentless snakes, snakes, on a plane, snakes, snakes, snakes on a plane!
Episode Title: 'S Wonderful, 'S Marvelous
The episode title comes from the song "'S Wonderful" writen by George and Ira Gershwin and sung by Ray Conniff. In 1997, Conniff released a greatest hits box-set entitled " 'S Wonderful, 'S Awful Nice and 'S Marvelous". The song is also heard in the movie Funny Face, which Christopher and Lorelai watch during the episode.
(to Chris, about their date)
Lorelai: Snakes on a boat?
Lorelai's line is a pun on the 2006 cult film Snakes on a Plane starring Samuel L. Jackson.
Lorelai: ...in my youth or childhood.
Christopher: You must have done something good.
Lorelai and Christopher are referencing a line from the movie The Sound of Music. The line is heard during the song "Something Good".
