Hello and welcome to an extensive list of all of my favorite quotes. No, these are not all Michel complaining. I just added that for the sake of including almost all members in these fun titles. Without further ado, let the Gilmore quoting commence.
LORELAI: I'm sorry Dad. How do you mix up Anton and Sophia?
RICHARD: What do you mean?
LORELAI: Well, one is a man and one is a woman.
RICHARD: And your point being?
LORELAI: That one is a man and one is a woman.
RICHARD: I have a lot to do in a day, Lorelai. I don't have time to keep up with the multitude of people that your mother employs.
LORELAI: But one is a man... and one is a woman.
RICHARD: Physical fitness is as important as intellectual fitness.
LORELAI: I told her she should go out for the debating team.
RORY: It's not a sport.
LORELAI: It is the way the Gilmores play.
EMILY: You can use your mother's old golf clubs. They're upstairs gathering dust along with the rest of her potential.
RICHARD: Now, what do you know about golf?
RORY: That it's a good walk spoiled?
This is often attributed to a quote by Mark Twain in that golf is a good walk spoiled, but this is not the case. The saying appeared in “The Saturday Evening Post” in August 1948. However, Twain died in 1910.
RICHARD: There are no rights and wrongs to the learning process.
JACKSON: The world was flat until someone took a boat trip.
LORELAI: Tell me something happy.
SOOKIE: I can't make the strawberry shortcake.
LORELAI: Wow. You suck at this game.
LORELAI: Well good intentions and no physical exertion whatsoever is what the game of golf was built on.
LORELAI: Dad? Yeah, it's Lorelai. Who else calls you "dad"?
LORELAI: You know what I was thinking?
RORY: That Madonna and Sean Penn should get remarried?
LORELAI: Besides that.
LORELAI: Do you want something to drink?
RORY: Are you trying to make up?
LORELAI: No, I'm trying to hydrate you.
LORELAI: A crazy evil spirit obsessed with bra size took over my body.
RORY: It happens.
LORELAI: Well, now especially that the crack den is closed down on the corner all her really good friends are gone.
