Wedding Bell Blues is the 13th episode of Season 5 on WB drama Gilmore Girls.


THE 100TH EPISODE/RICHARD AND EMILY RENEW THEIR VOWS – The night before Richard (Edward Herrmann) and Emily (Kelly Bishop) renew their vows, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) feel obligated to throw Emily a bachelorette party. At the ceremony the following day, Rory tells Logan (Matt Czuchry) she wants a relationship with him even though he's not ready to commit.

Later, when Lorelai, Luke (Scott Patterson) and Christopher (David Sutcliffe) discover Rory and Logan together, half-dressed, the shocking scene leads to an angry confrontation between Luke and Christopher.

Richard – Focus please
Lorelai – I am a camera
Emily – (mistely) Oh, Lorelai, don't you think you'll ever want to be married?

You and me, we're done
—Lorelai to Emily

Lorelai – They're yellow and cute. I'll look like the Morton's Salt girl
Lorelai – Yeah, yeah, that's fine. Rory's spending the night. We're having a Cop Rock marathon
Rory – OK, The Best of Super Furry Animals complete
Rory – Hey, do you want the Arcade Fire?
Rory – Then stick with your strengths. Brian Eno coming up next
Show her Nick Nolte's mug shot. [Answering the phone.] Hello?
Lorelai – Hey, stop being such a Nancy-boy about the pants. Think Hemingway ever gave a crap what his pants looked like?
Richard – You know that Marilyn was a very intimate friend of Cecil Beaton. He named an end table after her
Lorelai – Great. Come back as Thora Birch
Emily – Stop that. Maybe I should take a Seconal
Lorelai – Excellent idea, Judy
Lorelai – Mom, it's a pretend wedding. J.Lo has them all the time!
Lorelai – Say, aren't you the culture Queer Eye guy?
We’re doing the one from Pulp Fiction. Do you want to be Uma, or should I?
Richard – I went over all the greats – Bennett, Sinatra, Chuck Berry – and a story popped into my head
Richard – Not exactly Cole Porter. Emily would tease me, saying, ‘If only your name was Bill, then this could be our song’


Logan – I do. It’s very Bugsy Malone
I hope you at least bought her a Moon Pie.
Rory – Quite a draw for a guy with an American Express black card
Little knit bags full of those Jordan almonds
Rory – Hey, girls just wanna have fun. Stringless fun
