Sookie St. James
Emily\'s DAR Friend
We learn in this episode that Martha's full name is Martha Janice Lori Ethan Rupert Glenda Carson Daisy Danny Belleville and Davey's full name is David Edward Belleville.
When Bo enters the church in his white suit, a bunch of change drops to the floor. He shakes his leg as if to suggest that it came from a hole in his pocket but if you look closely, you can see him toss the change to the ground with his right hand.
One of the pieces of clothing that Rory takes back from the maid and places on her bed is the pink floral dress that she was wearing the night of the Dragonfly Inn opening (ep 4x22), the night she first slept with Dean.
Lorelai, Luke, Sookie, Jackson are all supposed to be friends and yet Luke doesn't attend the baptism.
In addition, he's Lorelai's fiancé, so it would make sense that he goes with her.
Even Kirk was invited!
The tune that comes to Zack that he starts to hum while sitting in Luke's is "Brass Bonanza," the fight song of the Hartford Whalers.
Whenever there is an event in Jackson's life, his family springs something on him. First in episode 2.22 "I Can't Get Started" Jackson's father tells him that he has to wear a kilt on his wedding day, and in this episode his mother tells him that he has to be baptized.
We learn in this episode that Jackson's full name is Jackson Matthew Belleville. The reverand calls his name out in the church before the baptism begins.
There is a poster of Michael Moore's movie, Fahrenheit 9/11, on Lane's room's door.
In the scene after the Baptism, Lorelai and Bo are talking and Lorelai's bra is visible on her left side, when she walks away to talk to Rory its concealed again. When the shot goes back to her for the last time its showing again.
Which one goes better with a baby?
Lorelai and Rory both say this line, with only a one word difference, in the episode. First Lorelai to Luke and then Rory to Logan.
In this episode Jackson said it was cousin Rune that told Bo that Lorelai was a horndog. Rune was the one who Lorelai went out on the double date with Sookie and Jackson in the season one episode "Double Date" and the date went badly. So where would he have got the idea that she was a horndog.
Rory calls Logan after the Baptism of Sookie's children and catches him in class. Why would Logan, a known slacker, be in class on a weekend?
Jackson says that Rune told Bo that Lorelai was a 'horn-dog'. However, in the season one episode "Emily in Wonderland", Sookie says that the rest of Jackson's family doesn't talk to Rune.
Rory: Listen, I know this sounds really lame now, but you can have my new number if you want it.
Lorelai: No. It's okay. I'll call the house, and Grandma can leave you a note.
Rory: (fighting with her mom about why she got a new number) I lost my phone.
Lorelai: Well, if you lose your phone, then you suspend your service until you get a new one. That way, you get to keep the same number. Ever heard of that? You don't get an entirely new number--nobody gets an entirely new number!
Rory: Yeah, well, next time I'll suspend my service!
(Reverend Skinner asked about their religious beliefs)
Lorelai: Well, um, religion. But, you know, I can't speak for Rory, but I have a strong belief in good. You know, over evil. I mean, if I was asked to choose a side.
Rory: I read the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Lorelai: I have a bible. Although I may or may not have accidentally given it to Goodwill, because I'm remodeling. But, Goodwill is a religious organization. I think. But even if it's not, Good. Will. It's in the ballpark.
Rory: I buy tons of Girl Scout cookies.
Lorelai: I have two 'Mary is my home-girl' t-shirts.
Reverend: Well, these are all very positive, if somewhat irrelevant, things. And it seems like your hearts are in the right place.
Reverend Skinner: We are honored with the privilege of being here today to witness and support in faith the baptism of David Edward Melville, Martha Janice Lori Ethan Rupert Glinda Carson Daisy Danny Melville, and Jackson Matthew Melville. I hereby charge Lorelai Gilmore, Rory Gilmore, and Bo Melville with the reponsibility of seeing to the spiritual welfare of these children and this believer. We will now begin a series of ceremonial questions. Lorelai Gilmore do you renounce Satan and all the spiritual forces that rebel against God?
(Lorelai isn't paying attention and doesn't respond)
Sookie: Why aren't you renouncing Satan?
Sookie: He said 'do you renounce Satan' and you paused. That's not something you pause about.
Lorelai: Oh. Sorry. Yes I renounce Satan.
(Rory lies in bed staring at the ceiling. The alarm goes off. She turns it off)
Logan: Go back to sleep.
Rory: I have to go to the Baptism.
Logan: Blow it off.
Rory: I can't.
Logan: You can do anything. You just have to believe in yourself. Do we learn nothing from Mad Hot Ballroom?
Rory: I have to go to Stars Hollow. I have to see my mom.
Logan: One, two, cha, cha, cha.
Rory: Okay. Nothing left to do but get up and face the music.
(She gets out of bed, opens the closet, and holds up two dresses)
Rory: Which goes better with the baby?
Rory: Well, everything seems appealing when you're stumbling out of an Amsterdam Coffee Bar.
Finn: Tell me about it. One night, I spent half an hour hitting on a bike
Rory: You look nice today, Kirk.
Kirk: Thanks. This is the suit they buried my dad in.
Rory: (to Lorelai) Look, I know this is lame at the point, but you can have my new number if you want it.
Lorelai: You know what, it's all true – I'm a horn dog.
Kirk: Do you know which is the Davey side of the church and which is the Martha?
Rory: I don't think they are sides, Kirk. It's not like a wedding. I think we're all on both kids' sides.
Rory: I doubt that she will talk to me again until I'm back in a dorm room with a course catalogue on my lap, if then. I don't know. Maybe we'll never talk again.
Beau: (licks Lorelai's clothes and his own with a finger) What do you say we get out of these wet clothes?
Lorelai: Shouldn't a mother have a way to contact her daughter in case of an emergency?
Rory: Taking time off has been great. It was absolutely the right decision for me.
Rory: I'm going to be Davey's godmother.
Lane: Very religious. My mother would be impressed.
Lane: Oh my God! The tour money! You went into my underwear drawer?! I cannot believe that you went into my underwear drawer.
Zach: It was business, not pleasure, Lane.
Brian: I had my eyes closed the entire time. It was all by feel.
Sookie: Perhaps this looks familiar. His butt. It's your butt. It's your butt, Luke. It's your butt.
Luke: Sookie, stop screaming "It's your butt". People are eating.
Sookie: What are the odds of me finding a cake-topper with exactly your butt?
Sookie: Luke, Luke, Luke, look, look, look. Oh! Luke Luke Luke, look look look! (laughs) That was kind of funny, it just came out!
Beau: All right then. See you soon. licks room key and winks at Lorelai who exhales sharply and looks disgusted.
Jackson: Lorelai checked Bo in.
Sookie: We are so, so sorry.
Bo: Well, aren't you accommodating. I guess I'll just go get my duffel bag out of the mini van. (exits)
Lorelai: (to Jackson) That's the first time I ever heard the word 'duffel' sound dirty.
Jackson: I am so, so sorry.
Bo: Risky business, huh? Are you into risky business?
Lorelai: No. All of a sudden, I hate it.
Bo: Well, hello, L.G.
Jackson: He thinks you're a nympho. Bo said Rune said you're a horn dog.
Lorelai: A horn dog?
Jackson: His word, not mine.
Sookie: His family, not mine.
Lorelai: (about Michel) He's snarky.
Sookie: And sarcastic.
Lorelai: He's snarkastic.
Sookie: (about Jackson) I got my buffer.
Sookie: I hate prop comedy.
Lorelai: They're not freeloading hicks. They're our guests.
Rory: (about Katrinka) Who's the skirt?
Lorelai: Sookie, you're part owner of the place.
Sookie: Oh, yeah.
Lorelai: Whoa! Whoa! Sookie, don't do math. You know that hurts your head.
Jackson: Sookie, look at the Baptism as a bargaining chip. If we give my mother this, then it will soften the blow when she finds out that we're not having any more children because of the vasectomy.
Lorelai: Who's getting Baptized?
Sookie: Oh, our kids are, because apparently we're suddenly super-religious.
Maid: Mrs. Gilmore says that autumn is the time for sweaters and wool, not for sundresses and flipper-floppers.
Lorelai: Every journey begins with a single step.
Luke: What are you doing yelling 'fire'? You can't do that.
Lorelai: No, that only pertains to movie theatres, crowded ones. If you're watching a Wednesday matinee of Deuce Bigalow, you can yell 'fire' all you want, hell, you could start a fire and no one will complain.

Lorelai: Nice sunglasses. Very Risky Business.
Beau: Oh, yeah? You like "risky business"?
Lorelai: No. All of a sudden I hate it. Tom Cruise in his underwear makes me wanna barf.
Lorelai is referring to the sunglasses Beau is wearing are similar to the ones worn by Tom Cruise's character in the 1983 film Risky Business
