God I love Michel. You don’t get to see him often, but when you do, it’s always a treat. I don’t know why he’d be the one to help Rory give a CD to Lane, but I’m glad he did.

Best quotes and one liners
CHRISTOPHER: Hey Lor, it’s Chris.
LORELAI: Hey you, how’s it going?
CHRISTOPHER: Good, good. I’m on a little business trip here and I thought I’d call and check in on Rory.
LORELAI: Oh, she went to some biker party a few days ago and never came back. CHRISTOPHER: Again?
LORELAI: Yeah, we gotta start disciplining that girl.
[In the centre of town, Rory walks down the sidewalk as a pay phone rings. She answers it] RORY: Hello?
LANE: It’s me.
RORY: Lane, this is flat out stalking.
LANE: Look, I don’t have much time. I’ve already used up my five minutes of phone time so this is totally illicit, but I have to talk to you. There’s a new Belle and Sebastian single coming out today.
RORY: I know.
LANE: I have to have it.
RORY: I don’t know if I have time to pick it up.
LANE: What? Rory, do you wanna hear how I used up my five minutes of phone time today? Talking to Amazon.com trying to get them to overnight it to me in a plain package with a return address referencing something Korean and religious.
RORY: They wouldn’t do it, huh?
LANE: I think they notified the government.
CHRISTOPHER: Uh, that Paris was a little intense.
LORELAI: Ha, a little? The opposing team could bring her up on war crimes.
RORY: Yeah, her approach will come in handy when she becomes a CEO or a dictator of a country or something.
SHERRY: And your uniform is darling, really. I love the blue. Of course, I’m sure you look good in anything.
LORELAI: Oh yeah, you should see her in chaps.
RORY: No, that was just my mom being funny.
LORELAI: Yeah, it comes and goes. You’ll learn to notice the signs.
CHRISTOPHER: The waves get really still, the animals start to act funny.
LORELAI: Okay, well, if you wanna grab a drink after the movie, Rory’s got the list of places that serve minors.
RORY: Nah, I got a flask in my purse.
SHERRY: Okay, I’m gonna have to drink a lot of coffee to keep up with you two.
LORELAI: Damn, our secret’s been revealed.
LUKE: You don’t seem your chipper self.
LORELAI: I brought some sparklers. I’ll light them later and do some kicks.
LORELAI: So, I’m dying to hear about your night with Sherry. How was it? Give it to me, A to Z, beginning to end, soup to nuts.
RORY: Well, she is what she seems.
LORELAI: Details please.
RORY: She’s a very cautious driver. She doesn’t roll through stop signs, doesn’t speed, she always signals before she turns.
LORELAI: Hm. Commendable, but not the person I want driving our getaway car.
RORY: What are we robbing?
LORELAI: Sephora. We had it all planned out.
RORY: Oh my God. Michel, are you okay?
MICHEL: I’ve been running around this stupid square for over an hour.
MICHEL: Why? Because the plan was to drop the CD at nine o’clock.
RORY: No, it got changed to ten. I told my mom and she said she’d pass it on. She didn’t pass it on, did she?
MICHEL: Definitely not.
RORY: Oh, well the mission was a success.
MICHEL: Yes, my cardiologist will be thrilled. Ah! I’ve got a cramp, I’ve got a cramp!
RORY: Can I do anything for you?
MICHEL: Ah, get away from me evil girl! Never will I do anything for you again, ever, ever, never!
RORY: Well if it makes you feel any better, you had really good form.
MICHEL: You are your mother’s child.
RORY: Thank you!
Final thoughts and fun facts
I’m not a fan of Sherry but my god is Mädchen Amick beautiful.
Coincidence or not, Gilmore Girls has many resemblances to Twin Peaks. This episode introduces Christoper’s new girlfriend Sherry, played by Mädchen Amick, who previously played diner waitress Shelly in Twin Peaks, that was famous for its cherry pie. Also Lorelai and Rory are wondering where they can take Sherry, and Rory says that she probably doesn’t look like a diner chick, making a reference to her occupation in Twin Peaks.
Paris tells Rory that she is not speaking fast enough when practicing for the debate. This could be an inside joke, since Gilmore Girls is known for their quick speech.
