Lorelai: But my question is, how did that happen? How was it that suddenly everyone in the world was saying 'music has charms to soothe the savage beast' when it was written breast.
Lorelai: This whole morning has been a little Twilight Zone-y.
Luke: Or Outer Limits-y
Luke: Great show. Just as eerie, same era but no one ever references it.
Lorelai: Oh, I'm sorry, I don't speak geek.
Luke: Yep, stepped right in it.
Emily: Richard, you didn’t even notice your own granddaughter isn’t here?
Richard: She’s so quiet she sometimes slips in unnoticed. She should work for the C.I.A.
Lorelai: Yeah, sadly because one of the fat ladies met her maker.
Rory: Really? Which one?
Lorelai: The fat one.
Rory: Well, having company is about making sacrifices.
Lorelai: Martha Stewart?
Rory: I paraphrased Proust.
Christopher: Good, good. I’m on a little business trip here and I thought I’d call and check in on Rory.
Lorelai: Oh, she went to some biker party a few days ago and never came back.
Lorelai: Yeah, we gotta start disciplining that girl.
Richard: Oh, oh, a family man shouldn’t drive a motorcycle. The accidents I covered for the firm involving motorcycles – the worst, grisly. They use this industrial machine to scrape the victims off the road like a huge spatula.
Lorelai: Hey, mouthful of cherries here.
When Lorelai and Chris are arguing at Luke's, the ketchup bottle changes from a twist-top bottle to a squirt bottle.
When Lorelai and Rory are playing bagel hockey, they think about retiring 'Schmitty' to Cooperstown. However, Cooperstown is where the baseball hall-of-fame is located; the hockey hall-of-fame is in Toronto.
Christopher: I hear you're the greatest chef after Alan Ducass.
Alan Ducass is a famous French chef.
Lorelai: Yeah, duck Harvey.
This is a reference to a play, made into a movie which starred Jimmy Stewart. The plot involved a man who thought he had an invisible friend, Harvey, who was a six foot tall rabbit.
Lorelai: Or we could sit in the corner, you know the mafia table, so that no one can come up behind you and whack you with a cannoli.
Rory: Whack you with a cannoli? Oh, because he left the gun and took the cannoli.
This is a reference to The Godfather, in which Clemenza spoke the line "Leave the gun. Take the cannoli." right before he murdered a man.
Lorelai: You, me, Martin Sheen all chained to the same tree.
Actor Martin Sheen, a well-known pacifist, has been arrested over 60 times for protesting.
