Episode One Hundred Twenty-Six: “I’m OK, You’re OK”
Original Airdate: April 4, 2006
Zach knows he and Lane make a great team. What he didn’t know is that he and Mrs. Kim make a great team, too. And Lorelai and Rory are fine—just fine—with the men in their lives. Really, they’re fine.
Ah, the start of round two.
PARIS: You, Logan Huntzberger, are nothing but a two-bit, [he tries to push past Paris] spoiled waste of a trust fund. You offer nothing to women or the world in general. If you were to disappear from the face of the earth tomorrow, the only person that would miss you is your Porsche dealer.
LOGAN: Want to chime in here?
RORY: No, I think Paris has got it covered.
And of course, you gotta love Luke in this scene. I laugh every time I see it.
I do have to say I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how Mrs. Kim is evolving. How she’s becoming so supportive of Lane and Zack and their music. It’s awesome!
DOYLE: I do! In fact, I almost hooked up with a really hot chick tonight.
RORY: I don’t see how that’s gonna help your case, Doyle, at all. [to Logan] Know what Fine. Let’s take this out into the hall.
PARIS: You could have hooked up with a hot chick?
PARIS: In rhinestone buttons? Who was it — Sheila E.?
LUKE: Yeah, it’s weird, ’cause usually it’s me calling her to do things. This is the first time that she’s called me.
LORELAI: Well, good. That’s progress, right?
LUKE: I think so, but I can’t take a week off from the diner. Plus, you and I probably have all sorts of plans next week.
LORELAI: Not that we I of, oh, wait was next week the week we were gonna start our lives as outlaws?
LORELAI: Kirk was in here today.
RORY: Nothing good starts with, “Kirk was in here today.”
LORELAI: And he’s trying to be a realtor and he told me that he’s been taking my parents around to look at houses.
RORY: Around here?
RORY: But why?
LORELAI: Why?! Because Luke and I are getting married, and I guess they figure we’ll be having kids, and they want to be near me when that happens, really near, like in the room wearing Bill Blass scrubs.
RORY: Oh, boy.
LORELAI: I don’t know what to do. I moved 30 miles away from my parents for a reason. Those 30 miles act as buffer so that when my mother says something that makes me want to kill her, I have to drive 30 miles to do it. 10 miles in, I usually calm down or I get hungry or I pass a mall, something prevents me from actually killing her. That buffer is my mother’s best friend. Take the buffer away and you got Nancy Grace camping out on miss patty’s lawn for a month.
