Episode Quotes
Rory: You look nice today, Kirk.
Kirk: Thanks. This is the suit they buried my dad in.

Lorelai: You know what, it’s all true – I’m a horn dog.

Jackson: Sookie, look at the baptism as a bargaining chip. If we give my mother this, then it will soften the blow when she finds out that we’re not having any more children because of the vasectomy.

Luke: What are you doing yelling 'fire'? You can’t do that.
Lorelai: No, that only pertains to movie theatres, crowded ones. If you're watching a Wednesday matinee of Deuce Bigalow, you can yell 'fire' all you want, hell, you could start a fire and no one will complain.

Lorelai: Who’s getting baptized?
Sookie: Oh, our kids are, because apparently we’re suddenly super-religious.

(about Michel)
Lorelai: He's snarky.
Sookie: And sarcastic.
Lorelai: He's snarkastic.

Maid: Mrs. Gilmore says that autumn is the time for sweaters and wool, not for sundresses and flipper-floppers.

Jackson: He thinks you’re a nympho. Bo said Rune said you’re a horn dog.
Lorelai: A horn dog?
Jackson: His word, not mine.
Sookie: His family, not mine.

Episode Goofs
When Rory calls Logan after the baptism, he is in class. However, the baptism took place on a Saturday when classes are not in session.
