Morey is the tall, mostly silent husband of Babette Dell, one of Lorelai's neighbors. He is a musician and is usually wearing a black pork pie hat and sunglasses. Morey has a very sweet friendship with Rory, and is generally a kind, calm and zen persona. He is very clear about his view on society, often aligning with and expressing civil rights statements.

  • Morey detests being early to events, which he finds uncool.
