Lorelai: You know why she pays so much? So she can torture you and you won't throw knives at her.
Emily: Flying, thumping balls all over the place.
Lorelai: Flying, thumping what all over the place?
Emily: You are four.
Lorelai: And balls are funny.
Lorelai: Cheeseburger, onion rings, and a list of people who killed their parents and got away with it. I'm looking for heroes.
Kirk: Say I was Tom Cruise, where would you seat me?
Luke: In an acting class.
Lorelai: Oh my God, Kirk, I forgot you were here.
Kirk: If I had a nickel for every time I heard that.
Lorelai: Yeah, we always had the job, Sookie. The whale was just toying with us. She was swatting us with her tail and hosing us down with her blowhole because that is the whale's M.O. - humiliate and rip apart every other fish in the sea until there's nothing left but a bloody pile of chum.
Sookie: Boy, you really hate whales, don't you?
Emily: You should take my plate. Otherwise, you'll have no place to put the potpie.
Lorelai: Oh, I can think of a place.
Lorelai: You never called me back.
Jason: I'll call you back now. What's your number?
Lulu: Wow, I'm getting the fancy treatment.
Kirk: Well, you did show up.
Lorelai and Sookie take some containers out of the car and head towards the front door at the elder Gilmore home. When you see the next shot of them at the door, the containers Sookie is carrying are different from the ones she took out of the car.
Episode Title: An Affair to Remember
The episode title comes from the 1957 movie of the same name. The movie tells the story of two lovers, played by Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr.
Emily: Shame on you for swearing there's a flier. That's the worst possible thing you could do.
Lorelai: Liv Tyler grew up her entire life thinking Todd Rundgren was her real father. You think that might knock this out of first place?
Liv Tyler is the daughter of Bebe Buell and Aerosmith lead-singer Steven Tyler.
Todd Rundgren is an American musician who agreed to be a father figure to Liv after her real father wasn't able to do so due to drug problems. Though Liv was told that Todd is her real father, she discovered the truth behind her paternity at the age of 9.
