Lorelai: I once told the store that my name was Squeegy Beckinheim just to see how many catalogs they'd sell my name to. And apparently, my name is to catalog companies what Brooke Shields' picture is to Chinese Restaurants.
Lorelai: But it's our Boo Radley...
Luke: You mean like the Revolutionary War.
Babette: Or Rosa Parks?
Lorelai: (sings) They're cousins, identical cousins. . .
Luke: Insurance?
Jess: I'm in good hands.
Luke: Did you make sure Andrew Jackson was on the bills, not Alfred E. Neuman or someone?
Rabbi: We answer to a higher the hot dog.
Reverend: Maybe the Shakers in Woodbury would take him.
Jess: Geez, how Andy Griffith is this town that people get so excited by a car?
Lorelai: No, "For Keeps". Uh, Molly Ringwald, Randall Batinkoff, little underrated post-John Hughes flick. She went to prom fat. I found it really inspirational.
Lorelai: I almost named you Quincy.
Lorelai: They're identical. Two syllables, repeating consonants. Rory. G.G.
Rory: Oprah. Uma.
Jess: Call me Dirk Squarejaw.
Lorelai: She's Rand McNally.
Taylor: Well, you can hang out in Haight-Ashbury and drink as much electric Kool-Aid as you want, Babette, but I'm preparing for the worst.
