I miss the Girls!!!
So I have been thinking all weekend about Rand, objectivism, egoism, altruism, religion, and other pretty deep topics, yet, when I woke this morning I just had a terrible sense of how much I miss Lorelai and Rory!!! I know, a post on collectivism verses the individual will soon be coming, but for now, let me just say that I miss the girls of Gilmore.
I became slightly addicted to GG when I came down with one of the most horrific illnesses of my life in New York City. I was unable to walk or sit up and I had to get a cab, lay in the back, and ask them to take me to the ER as I was dying. The cabbie barely batted an eyelash and sped with alacrity to the NYU emergency facilities. If he would have offered to help me into the actual building we might be married by now. So, in recovery, my roommate Becky introduced me to GG. This was 2004 and Gilmore Girls had just started it's forth season. I watched season 1 straight through in about 2.5 days. I credit it with my continued desire to live. Ever since then I have been an addict. Yes, hello, my name is D'Arcy and I am addicted to Gilmore Girls and Hagen-Daz Chocolate Peanut Butter ice-cream.
Gilmore Girls taught me about the Sex Pistols, Bill Moyers and the Power of Myth (how else would you want to spend spring break?), the Pixies, Norman Mailer, Elsa Clench, Merlin Perkins, and whether I want a "Nick & Nora" or a "Sid & Nancy" type of love.
Man, there is just an empty void that I can't shake every Tuesday night at 7 pm
Now, can I get to the really crazy part. I actually had a notebook that I would write down particularly funny phrases that I wanted to remember. I KNOW!!! It's insanely weird and wrong, but just read on, I promise you'll laugh.
HERE IT IS---SOME OF THE FUNNIEST LINES FROM THE WORLD OF GILMORE:
"While He is being sexy--he's also being grammatically correct." --Rory
"I know I've always dreamed that a boy would give me a really confusing Czechoslovakian novel." --Lane
"I guess this goes on the 'Boy Was I Wrong List' right below gauchos, but above the Flashdance phase." --Lorelai
"I'm afraid once your heart is involved it all comes out in moron." --Lorelai
"Show her a picture of Nick Nolte's mug shot!"
"Bob Hope is laughing in heaven, but I'm not." --Rory
"Let me check my spinster calendar..." --Lorelai
"I'm smiling because you're crazy and that's what you do to crazy people to keep them calm." --Rory
Logan: You're special, Rory.
Rory: Like "stop eating the paste" kind of special?
"Because Rory, when I read my autobiography I don't want to be bored!" --Paris
"There is no use for lava lamps unless you are on drugs." --Emily Gilmore
"You once told me you loved 'Saved by the Bell', what can be more humiliating than that?" --Lorelai
And Finally---Hep Alien's Finest Moment:
Zach: Yeah. Dave, you're a Christian. So what? That's cool.
Brian: It's nothing to hide.
Zach: Christians can still rock.
Dave: They can?
Lane: Yeah, yeah, Dave. Christians can still rock, don't hide it.
Zach: Marshall Stacks don't know Christians from atheists.
Dave: Gosh, I just wasn't sure if you guys would be accepting of my devoutness.
Brian: Dave, it's a part of you, and we think you're cool, so it's cool.
Dave: Great. Thanks, guys.
Zach: But no way are we playing Creed, man.
Dave: Oh, no, of course not.
Zach: Or Amy Grant. That's where we draw the line.
