    • Paris: Janet, wait, wait! (runs into the room and hugs Janet) I hate that our little clique is breaking up. It's so the end of something. JANET: You off your meds, Paris? Paris: You never get emotional at goodbyes? Janet: With people I like. See you.

    • Liz: Were you this nervous on your wedding day? Lorelai: Mmm, never been married. Liz: You have a kid! Lorelai: Yeah, found a way around that. Liz: I see. You want to get married? Lorelai: Oh, now, Liz. It's inappropriate for you to propose to me on your wedding day.

    • Liz: This is the first of my weddings I've been sober for, so I'll probably remember this one! Miss Patty: Ooh, the ones you remember are the ones that stick!

    • Jess: (Jess knocks on the door as he walks in) Are you ready? The crowd's getting restless. Liz: You're getting restless. Hey, do you two know each other? Lorelai: Oh, Jess and I go way back. He dated my daughter. Liz: Oh, you broke her daughter's heart? Jess: Ah, I, uh... Lorelai: No, no, he didn't. It just didn't work out. Liz: Good, 'cause I don't want him to be like his father, breaking hearts. I want him to be like T.J. Or my second husband or, like my boyfriend after my third husband, who died. THOSE were good guys.

    • Jess: Yeah, but, in a relationship-any relationship-it's important to let the other person know you appreciate them so you don't create barriers that delay any hope for reciprocation. Luke: I think I read that somewhere. Jess: Yeah? Luke: You were hoping for reciprocation? You got it. I'm here, Jess. I'm always here. Jess:Thanks.(They shake hands then hug)The tie work out? Luke: The tie was perfect.

    Trivia (16)

    • In this episode we learn that Liz has been married three times.

    • Liz and T.J.'s wedding is the only wedding in which the vows are shown almost entirely. All other weddings between core characters only show pieces of the ceremony.

    • When Mrs. Kim knocked at the door the second time at Lane's, you could see that Lane lifts up the curtain to see who's at the door, but when she opens it she is surprised to see Mrs. Kim there. Now wouldn't she have seen her through the window when she lifted up the curtain. So then why was she surprised?

    Allusions (2)

    • Lorelai: It involves the "J" word. Rory: Oh, not more about Jesus. I'm sick of him and Mel Gibson.
      Rory is referring to the 2004 movie The Passion of Christ, which was co-written, co-produced and directed by Mel Gibson. It was considered by some to be one of the most controversial movies of all time.

    • Lorelai: Think they know any Zeppelin? (Two women dance down the aisle tossing roses) Ooh, roses -- nice. Luke: Does she remind you of someone? Lorelai: Can you say Leslie Van Houten? (A jester tumbles down the aisle) Now, that's impressive. Leslie Van Houten was a member of Charles Manson's 'Family'. She was convicted of the murders of Rosemary and Leno LaBianca. She was sentenced to death in 1971 but a year later her sentence was commuted. She has applied and been denied parole 16 times...the last time being September 7, 2006. This is the second time Lorelai has referenced a member the murderous Manson Family. The last time was in Season 2, Episode 12, "Richard in Stars Hollow" when she spoke of Patricia Krenwinkle... Lorelai: Rory's my kid and I make the rules, so if she comes home one day and says, 'Hey, uh, I'm gonna spend the weekend with Patricia Krenwinkle' I say, 'Okay, grab a sweater,' you just have to deal.
