Lorelai Gilmore’s 10 Best Quotes
The clever sarcasm and witty banter of Gilmore Girls differentiated it from any other television show in the same genre. Lorelai Gilmore, in particular, became known for her signature dialogue full of stinging comebacks and quick remarks that kept us laughing in hysterics throughout every episode. Her atypical parenting techniques, constant bickering with her mother, passion for junk food and coffee addiction created a character that was super relatable and the best friend (or mother) any girl could wish for. Follow along for 10 of Lorelai Gilmore’s most iconic quotes from the seven season run of Gilmore Girls:
10. Season 7, Episode 7 — French Twist
The show wouldn’t have been as iconic as it is without the Gilmore’s infamous love of junk food. Loralei’s unabashed passion for food and boundless appetite was unexpected because in the past female television stars were expected to eat in a lady-like and polite manner. Loralei, however, had no shame in admitting her favourite cuisines included the likes of Pop tarts, tater tots, hot dogs and mini-donuts (and even all in one sitting), but this is exactly what made Loralei’s character so real and relatable.
Lorelai: “I would like a cheeseburger, with a side of cheeseburger, and see if they can make me a cheeseburger smoothie.”
9. Season 1, Episode 17 — The Breakup Part 2
Although Lorelai’s parenting may come across as unconventional, her breakup advice for Rory was undeniably one of the best TV has seen. Rather than telling Rory to shove her feelings under the rug, she told Rory the best way to move on with her life was to wallow and allow herself to be sad. She of course took it to an extreme, but nevertheless the core message of her advice is strong and insightful to help Rory along through the moving on process.
Lorelai: “Get back in your pyjamas, go to bed, eat nothing but gallons of ice cream and tons of pizza, don’t take a shower or shave your legs or put on any kind of makeup at all and just sit in the dark and watch a really sad movie and have a good long cry and just wallow. You need to wallow.”
