Episode Quotes
(after Paris sneaks up on Rory)
Rory: God, you're like a pop-up book from hell!

Rory: I can't believe that you are going to let a group of strange girls come traipsing in here and take away your only child, your precious baby girl, and off to God knows where in the middle of the night.
Lorelai: If it's someplace with doughnuts, bring me one, okay?

Paris: Maybe someday I'll stumble into a Disney movie and suddenly be transported into your body, and after living there awhile, I'll finally realize the beauty of myself.

Rory: Oh my God!
Lorelai: Be nice.
Rory: You look like Nancy Reagan.
Lorelai: Oh, now how is that nice?

Lorelai: That's what you got busted for, ringing a bell?
Rory: Yeah, mm hmm.
Lorelai: That's it? Bell ringing?
Rory: Yes.
Lorelai: Uh, were you at least smoking a Cuban cigar while you were doing it?
Rory: Mom.
Lorelai: No, I mean, bad girl. How many times have I told you not to ring bells?

Lorelai: Put Carol on the desk and come pick me up.
Michel: I am not speaking to Carol. She ate my low-fat cheese.

Luke: By the way, you do tell people that you're the one that named my toolbox, right?
Lorelai: Toolbox, dirty.
Luke: Oh geez.

Lorelai: Ugh, they totally just snuck that modeling thing in.
Rory: Hmm, my mom's a model. Maybe you'll get to date Leonardo DiCaprio now.
Lorelai: Plus, now I have to plan the whole stupid thing.
Rory: "Lorelai Gilmore". Nope, doesn't sound model-y enough. You need something that stands out more. How about "Waffle"? We could call you Waffle and say you're from Belgium.
(Lorelai dials her cellphone)
Lorelai: Okay, I'm crabby, I need to do something about it. (on cellphone) Hey Mom!
Emily: Well, hello.
Lorelai: So I went to my first Booster meeting last night, did Bitty tell you?
Emily: No, she did not.
Lorelai: Oh, well, maybe she's still stuck under that desk. You might want to send someone out there to look.
Emily: Well, it's certainly nice to hear you finally getting involved.
Lorelai: Yes, in fact we're planning a charity fashion show next weekend, and I volunteered to organize it.
Emily: Well, good for you.
Lorelai: Yes, and since I know how concerned you are about how Rory's perceived at Chilton, I knew you'd want to be involved somehow, so you're gonna be one of the models.
Emily: Excuse me?
Lorelai: Yeah, so it's next Saturday, be there at four, and we'll provide hair and makeup.
Emily: Lorelai, you can't be serious.
Lorelai: Oh, and we'll need your measurements also.
Emily: This is ridiculous.
Lorelai: Mom. You said you wanted me to be involved. Well, I'm involved now. Don't you want to do your part to ensure Rory's future?
Emily: All right.
Lorelai: Start measuring.
(Lorelai hangs up)
Rory: You feel better now?
Lorelai: Waffle's very happy.
