I just love, no I just adore, Gilmore Girls. Lorelai and Rory Gilmore are fast talking mother-daughter best friends with a boundary-less relationship, which brings me great pleasure.
From Lorelai saying things like this :
“This is it. She can finally go to Harvard like she’s always wanted and get the education that I never got and get to do all the things that I never got to do and then I can resent her for it and we can finally have a normal mother-daughter relationship.”
to Rory saying things such as
“You cannot date Luke. If you date him, you’ll brake up and we’ll never be able to eat again. Date Al from Pancake World, his food stinks.”
They lead a great life: movie nights respecting the no talking rule but impersonating the actors, Friday night dinners getting Emily Gilmore aggravated, thousands of meals at Lukes, ordering a crazy amount of pizza, town meetings where they constantly mock Taylor and much more!
Although I love every character in this amazing show, I must pay my tribute (?) to Lorelai Gilmore as she is absolutely HILARIOUS! She’s full of life and always finds a way to include such diverting comments and far-fetched references. Everything she says is funny; her sarcasm and remarks are simply one of a kind. Let’s not forget how special her coffee addiction is ; there’s much she wouldn’t do to get some coffee in her system. (I need coffee in an IV – Lorelai Gilmore).
Here’s a glimpse of some of Lorelai Gilmore’s best work:
I managed to find Uno and Checkers, and Battleship and most of the pieces of Candyland. Which I figure, we can mix together to create a fabulous new game, Candyship Battleland. War never tasted so good!
My life stinks. Hey, let’s look into each other’s eyes and say “I wish I were you” at exactly the same time — maybe we’ll pull a “Freaky Friday.”
Hey, maybe instead of going to college, you should drop out and I could quit my job and we can form an all-girl band with Lane, you know, like Bananarama. We could call it Tangerinarama or Banana-fana-fo-fana-rama…or something.
Emily: A bad storm is heading your way. It’s already hitting us here.
Lorelai: Well, don’t panic. I’ll get the ark, you get the animals.
Rory: The house is burning and you can save the cake or me. Which do you save?
Lorelai: That’s not fair. The cake doesn’t have legs.
Lorelai: Okay, I know I was the one that said I was craving mashed potatoes, but, oh my God, they’re a lot of work.
Rory: It’s instant mashed potatoes. Key word: instant.
Lorelai: Oh, no, not instant. I have to mix water and butter into it, not to mention the adding of salt and pepper.
Rory: This is just wrong!
Rory: You washing two socks!
Lorelai: They were dirty.
Rory: That’s wasteful.
Lorelai: I really wanted to wear them tonight.
Rory: They are your dancing Santa Claus socks. You’re not gonna wear them for another ten months.
I will keep watching Gilmore Girls and laugh and be a bit more of a WYSEcrack just like Lorelai Gilmore!
