Rory: I'm never leaving home again!
Lorelai: Aww, that's my emotionally stunted girl!
Paris: Oh man, I finally get asked out on a date and I missed it. Was it a good ask out?
Rory: It was a very good ask out.
Paris: God, I wish I'd been there.
Lorelai: Luke was talking to my stomach and touching to it.
Rory: You were pregnant?
Lorelai: Yes, with twins. Say something.
Rory: You are going to be so fat.
Lorelai: Just analyze the dream.
Paris: What if I fall for him but he doesn't like me?
Rory: You'll find someone else.
Paris: What if there is no one else?
Rory: Then you'll get some cats.
Paris: For example, I can instantly deduce that when someone hears the name Paris in the same sentence with the word date, jaws will drop, confused looks will cover faces, words like ‘how' and ‘why' and ‘Quick, Bob, get the children in the minivan because the world is obviously coming to an end!' will immediately fly out of people's mouths.
Lorelai: I got here early and there was nothing to do except feed gummy bears to the bomb-sniffing dogs which, apparently, the United States government frowns upon.
Rory: You got in trouble with the government while you were waiting for me?
Lorelai: Just a little.
Rory: How much is a little?
Lorelai: Learned Russian.
Lorelai: I wonder if Sherry's baby will end up living like me.
Rory: If the kid knows what's good for it.
In the first scene in the background, when Rory is talking to Lorelai over the phone, you can see that Rory's laptop is open. When she goes over to read the letter from Jess, the screen is now down.
The reflection of the crew can be seen when Lorelai and Rory go to Sookie's.
Rory: You had another dream?
Rory: The doctor is in.
'The doctor is in' is a classic line of Lucy's in the "Peanuts" comic strip when she is running her booth.
Episode Title: Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days
The episode title comes from the title of a song by Nat King Cole entitled "Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer". During the summer carnival, the song is performed in the square.
Luke: Goodbye, Sid and Nancy.
Lorelai: Leopold and Loeb. I changed my mind.
Sid Vicious of The Sex Pistols killed his girlfriend Nancy in a drug induced haze. Leopold and Loeb two college students who were convicted of murder in 1924 in a trial that was widely publicized.
Sookie: What do you think? Manly?
Lorelai: In an Oscar Wilde sort of way, absolutely.
Oscar Wilde is a popular 19th century writer who was one of the first openly gay celebrities.
Sookie: So, how are you planning on telling them?
Lorelai: I thought I'd do it like Nell. You know, "Chicka chicka chicka bee."
This is a reference to the movie Nell in which and isolated Appalachian girl invents her own language.
