Children do not make the rules. You may move out and live like that somewhere else
—Mrs. Kim asks Lane to leave
In the Clamor and the Clangor is the 11th episode of Season 4 on WB drama Gilmore Girls.


Hear the tintinnabulation. New church bells set everyone on edge. More edginess: When Lorelai (Lauren Graham) discovers Luke (Scott Patterson) has moved, she freaks. When Mrs. Kim (Emily Kuroda) discovers Lane's (Keiko Agena) secret rock-'n'-roll life, she throws her out of the house.


Lorelai is upset to discover that Luke has gotten an apartment with Nicole in Litchfield, but when it becomes clear that he is reluctant to actually move, Lorelai admits to him that she doesn't want him to leave Stars Hollow. Rory keeps running to William, the guy who turned her down when she suggested they go out, and she is humiliated when she hears he has been spreading stories about her obsession with him. Meanwhile, when Lane sneaks out of the house to play a gig with her band, Mrs. Kim finally discovers her daughter's double life and kicks her out of the house.


  • Lane and the band get a gig at CBGB
  • The church bells fell into disrepair in 1983. Luke saw to it.
  • Lane reveals to Mrs. Kim that she started her secret life when she was 6 years old.






Lorelai – And then take the craziest mother-daughter title from Judy and Liza
Lane – You know, it's people like you who are destroying the music industry!
Rory – Oh, now. Britney's gotta shoulder some of the blame
Kirk – Yes, he said I have tinnitus. I looked it up on the web at "Celebrities Who Share Your Disease" and found that William Shatner is likewise afflicted
Lorelai – Really, Kirk and Captain Kirk?
Kirk – The irony wasn't lost on me
Lorelai – All those years of watching Hart to Hart are about to pay off
Lorelai – Okay, I'm out. What's your plan, Clyde?
William – Hey, it's Madeleine Albright
