If you’re a Gilmore Girl fan like me, you know that Gilmore Girls is more than just a show! In the words of one Lorelai Gilmore, ” It’s a lifestyle, it’s a religion.” That being the case, one cannot help but relate to the various antics of the Star Hollow residents and wishing that we too could live in an idealistic town. Though there are an infinite number of quotes from this show that we could include on this list, here are just 10 Gilmore Girl quotes that are totally relatable!
1.”I need coffee in an IV!”
For all of you caffeine lovers out there, there has never been a statement that rings more true! On those mornings when one cup of coffee just doesn’t seem to be enough, having an IV hooked to your arm would be ideal. Of course, it would probably be inappropriate to walk into the office like that, but we could dream. There are too many coffee quotes that could be included on this list, but this one speaks to any coffee loyalist’s soul. Well, we could think of one more but maybe it’s a little too NSFW for this post.
2.”People are particularly stupid today. I can’t talk to any more of them.”
Like our favorite grumpy, French, concierge, Michel Gerard, you’ve probably had to deal with some difficult people in your line of work. There are those days when you wish you could just ignore all your calls and let someone else deal with the annoying customers. Unfortunately, not all of us could be as rude as Michel even though there are times we really wish we could be as sarcastic. Until that day comes, we’ll stick to our fake smiles and customer service voices.
3.”I’m afraid once your heart is involved, it all comes out in moron.”
Anyone who has ever been in love or had a crush on someone could probably relate to this. Remember when Rory got kissed at Doose’s and all she could say was “Thank you”? To a person looking in, it makes no sense, but to someone who’s brain becomes mush as soon as their crush walks by, it seems the only logical response. There is something about attraction that just makes all rational thought fly out the window and there are plenty of times the Gilmore Girl quotes share the wisdom on the matter throughout the show.
4.”I just take a book with me everywhere. It’s a habit.”
Rory Gilmore gave bookworms everywhere validation when she uttered these words! A book can save you from many a situation including waiting in line at the doctors office or a boring school dance. If you’re like Rory, these Gilmore Girl quotes should you have a book for all types of situations. Biographies for the bus, short stories for lunch, and essays for when you don’t feel about reading someone’s life. You’re always prepared!
5. “Rory: Sarcasm does not become you. Lane: Maybe not, but it does sustain me.”
Let’s face it! For a large majority of us, sarcasm is our favorite language. There is not an opportunity that we would pass up to hit someone with a witty remark. It’s basically the code we live by and probably one of the requirements to take up residence in Stars Hollow. We’ll fit right in!
6.”I can be flexible. As long as everything is the way I want it, I’m totally flexible.”
Really? We’re not control freaks. There is just a certain way we like things done. It’s not our fault that all of the file have to be alphabetized and the pens color coordinated. Those are just the rules. Follow them and we are as flexible as yoga instructors!
7.”I want the healthy glow of someone who goes consistently to the gym without actually having to go of course.”
Kirk is all of us when we’re dreading our gym session. As much as running on the treadmill and feeling our muscles burn as we lift those weight excites us, there are just days when we’re not feeling it. We would much rather go on a juice cleanse that will guarantee to make our skin glow. Right Kirk?
8. “I don’t like Mondays, but unfortunately they come around eventually!”
While this Gilmore Girl quotes was voiced by a distraught Lorelai minutes before she breaks up with Luke, it does teach us something philosophical about life. Mainly, that just because we don’t like something doesn’t mean we will be able to avoid it forever. We have to face our fears! We have to confront our obstacles whether we succeed or fail! It’s the only way to get through life.
9.”Nothing excites me before 11:00.”
Unless you’re a morning person or have imbibed copious amounts of coffee, nothing remotely worth doing or getting up for happens before noon. If we didn’t have to go to work or school, we wouldn’t voluntarily get up early. Unless again, you’re a morning person. Yawn! It’s time for our afternoon nap.
10.”I want to live my life so that I’ll be able to read an in-depth biography about myself in later years and not puke.”
Leave it to Paris Gellar to inspire us with her comforting words. Hey sometimes things can’t be sugar coated and Paris is here to show us the tough love. However, her words inspire us to chase our dreams, live in the moment, and make memories that our biographer could write about for all to revel in years later. Sounds ideal to us!
