Gilmore Girls: Lorelai? Lorelai?

With graduation rapidly approaching, Rory begins to become more and more stressed about her future. Lorelai tries to cheer her up by planning the perfect day of shopping and eating. Later, after seeing that Luke is once again wearing the blue baseball cap, Lorelai invites him to come with her and Rory to karaoke night at a nearby bar. After drinks, Lorelai sings an emotion-filled song, noticeably directed toward Luke. Meanwhile, Logan returns to Connecticut after a business trip in California and pays a visit to Lorelai to discuss his future plans with Rory.

Episode Quotes
Rory: Wow, when did you get so mature?
Lane: Well, I think the maturity gene sets in when you become a mother

Lorelai: You're a serious guy. Look, you don't have to convince me. I voiced my concerns and you told me your plans, we had pie. I'm cool
Logan: Thank you! I appreciate that. That means a lot to me
Lorelai: Oh, you're welcome
Logan: So the thing is, as you can imagine, I'm pretty exited about all this
Lorelai: Yeah!
Logan: But it does mean I'll move to San Francisco
Lorelai: Oh wow! That's big. That's funny, Rory didn't mention it
Logan: Well, actually I haven't told her yet
Lorelai: And you're here because you want me to tell her for you?
Logan: No, no. I'm gonna tell her. I just ... I wanted to talk to you first about it
Lorelai: Okay. That's ... thoughtful
Logan: Look, I love Rory. She means the world to me, and I want her to come with me to California
Lorelai: Oh.
Logan: But not just as my girlfriend, which is why I'm here. I'm here to ask your permission, your permission to ask Rory to marry me.
(Lorelai stares at Logan, overwhelmed and speechless)
Logan: Lorelai? Lorelai?

Jackson Pollock is a famous painter known for his work during the abstract movement.

Lorelai: Alanis Morissette.
Rory: What? No.

Alanis Morissette is a Canadian singer who has sold millions of records in both Canada and the United States.

The Keller and Sulzberger families are both families that have a part in the New York Times: Keller is the executive editor of the Times while Sulzberger is the company chairman.

Babette: It's for my throat. Gives it a rougher quality, a husky sound sort of like Debbie Harry meets Ethel Merman.
