Kirk Gleason (Episodes 44 - , recurring previously)
It is worth noting that in the first episode of season 6, "New and Improved Lorelai", after Luke's long speech about kids and plants, Lorelai responds immediately that "kids would be good".
On the other hand, her lack of enthusiasm is obvious when Chris suggests they have a baby.
Logan comments that Marty and Rory hung out during their freshman year. In fact, the two didn't spend that much time together freshman year, but were close friends sophomore year, which is when Logan met the two of them.
This is Marty's final appearance
When Lorelai is holding Doula outside Dosey's, her right hand is on the baby's back. When the position of the camera changes however, she is suddenly holding Doula's head. An 11-day-old baby could never hold its head on its own.
When Christopher asks Lorelai to "go for it" about having a baby, the bed has the same sheets like the bed in Paris, in the 7th episode: "French Twist".
When Liz bring her baby to Luke's diner, she shows her to Ms. Patty. Ms. Patty says "Look at those eyes", then it cuts to the baby, and she is sleeping.
When Rory is buying a food pass for Logan, the cashier says it costs $9.75. Rory hands him one bill, but receives no change, only a receipt.
Lorelai: Hon, I thought we had a deal
Rory: We had no deal!
Lorelai: No, a deal for life. You got my back, I got yours.
Rory: I'm planning to have a good time at your wedding party and more important I'm planning to making sure you have a good time at your wedding party, there for, I think is important you be involved at the planning of your wedding party. So, in the big picture, I do very much have your back.
Lorelai: Yeah, whatever.
Lorelai: Sorry boys suck.
Rory: Hmm. Stupid bowls of soup.
Rory: (after Logan tells Lucy about Rory and Marty) What is wrong with you?
Logan: I was asked a direct question. I'm not gonna lie. She's a nice girl.
Rory: Yeah, I know she's a nice girl. She's my friend.
Logan: You were going to tell her, anyway.
Rory: Not here. Not like this. You totally humiliated her!
Logan: Lucy was humiliated because of what you and Marty did to her, not me. I just told her the truth, which is something she could use a little more of from her supposed friend and boyfriend.
Rory: I can't believe you're trying to justify this. What you did was so obnoxious!
Logan: I was just being honest.
Lorelai: So, what's going on? I thought it was an all Logan week.
Rory: It was.
Rory: Boys suck!
Lorelai: Oh, hon...
Rory: They totally suck!
Lorelai: Sometimes they do.
Rory: Tell me it gets better when they get older.
Lorelai: It gets better when they get older.
Rory: It does?
Lorelai: Well, it gets more confusing, more complicated, more complex. Does any of that sound better?
Emily: I've come to talk to you about your marriage.
Lorelai: My marriage?
Emily: Yes. I'm concerned. I don't like what I'm seeing, and I've come to offer you some friendly advice.
Lorelai: Mom, I really don't want your advice.
Emily: Well, then, consider it unfriendly advice. Christopher is immature, often foolish, and a little lacking in common sense. He doesn't always make the best choices.
Lorelai: Like with me, Mom? Are you saying he chose wrongly in choosing me?
Emily: I'm saying he's your husband, Lorelai, for better or for worse. I like Christopher.
Emily: I think he's good for you. But it's not going to be perfect. He's not perfect, and God knows you're not perfect. But marriage is not about always being happy, and often it's about not being happy at all. It's about compromise, which is not you strong suit. Marriage is about swallowing your pride sometimes, about doing what he wants. It's not always about winning an argument, which may make you sad because that's what you love, but....I just don't want to see you ruin this. Marriage is serious business, Lorelai, and if you don't take this very seriously, then this whole thing is going to fall apart faster than you could possibly imagine. Then he'll be gone, and you'll be alone again. A ring is no guarantee.
Kirk: I think it's safe to say they won't be getting that new gym anytime soon.
Luke: You must be proud.
Kirk: I am.
Chris: Uh, no, we said one sugar cereal.
Lorelai: (holding a box of Captain Crunch) You're going to deny me the captain?
Liz: She's been attached to my boob for 2 weeks, and TJ's finally decided to get a work ethic.
Emily: Lorelai, come look at these invitations.
Lorelai: Can't we just send an e-Vite?
Lucy: Congratulations on buying the internet or something.
Logan: Thank you, although Al Gore and I are still negotiating, so it's not a done deal yet.
Lorelai: I'm not much of an outside the shower singer.
Luke: Look, I don't want this to get ugly. I just want what's fair.
Lawyer: Custody battles get ugly, Luke, and there's not always about what's fair. The truth is that this will be long, it will be expensive, and you'll probably lose--but if you want your daughter, it's the only way. And time is of essence here, because once Anna moves April out of the state, it becomes infinitely more complicated.
Rory: Hi, is Lucy home?
Olivia: Yeah, she's here.
Rory: Can I see her?
Olivia: She doesn't want to speak to you right now, and frankly, neither do I.
Rory: Olivia, please just let me explain.
Olivia: No. (closes door in her face)
(Luke is walking down the street pushing Doula in a stroller when Lorelai comes out of Dooses.)
Lorelai: (gestures to the stroller) Who's, who's this?
Luke: It's Liz's baby.
Lorelai: Oh, how sweet. Congratulations. You're an uncle again. Huh?
Luke: Yeah, thanks.
Lorelai: Oh, well, she's cute. She looks just like T.J.
Luke: And hopefully she'll grow out of that.
Lorelai: No, she's adorable. She's sweet. So, what's her name?
Lorelai: Oh is that-
Luke: A weird name? Yeah.
Lorelai: Weird. A little bit. But, no, it's special. It's one of a kind. Distinctive. Can I? (holds her arms to hold Doula)
Luke: Oh, sure, of course.
Lorelai: (picks her up) Hi. Hi. Oh, precious. (holds her close) How old is she? Two weeks?
Luke: 11 days.
Lorelai: Oh, wow! And how's Liz?
Luke: Oh, they're great. They're both doing great. They're gonna make very strange parents. Strange, but good ones, I know.
Lorelai: Nothing wrong with strange but loving households.
Luke: I guess.
Lorelai: (laughs softly; about Doula) Look at her long fingers.
Luke: (standing closely to Lorelai) Yeah, I know.
Lorelai: (to Doula) What are you gonna be, a pianist when you grow up? Is that what you're gonna be, pretty girl? Or, a pickpocket? Oh, yes you might. You might be a pickpocketing pianist.
Luke: Oh, look what she did. (wipes her mouth as Christopher comes out of Doose's and sees them talking softly to the baby)
Lorelai: Hey. Look, it's Liz's new baby.
Lorelai: (to Luke) Yeah, well, thanks for letting me hold her. (hugs her and puts her back in her stroller)
Luke: Yeah, sure.
Lorelai: And, um, tell Liz, congratulations for me.
Luke: Will do.
Lorelai: Alright. See ya.
Luke: See ya.
(she leaves with Christopher and Luke goes back to walking with Doula)
Lorelai: Avoid the words 'Made with real vegetables'
Rory: How goes the party planning?
Lorelai: What? What happened!?
Rory: That good, huh?
Lorelai: Is he okay!?
Rory: I'm not participating in this.
Lorelai: Oh my God! What can I do? What do you need!?
Rory: You're not using this phone call to get out of party planning help.
Lorelai: I'll be right there.
Emily: I can hear Rory on the other end Lorelai. You're not as clever as you think you are.
Emily: I have the most exciting news!
Lorelai: You're cancelling my wedding party?
Emily: I caught Randell Farber as your party planner.
Lorelai: So he's cancelling my wedding party?
Chris: What's with the face?
Lorelai: My face? What face? It's my face. You don't like my face?
(about exchanging vows)
Christopher: I don't think it's such a bad idea.
Christopher: It might be kinda nice.
Lorelai: (scoffs) Wait a minute? Is this an ambush. Are you guys ambushing me?
Emily: No one is ambushing you Lorelai. The idea of your exchanging vows in front of all your family and friends isn't so outrageous.
Lorelai: Mom, the whole reason we eloped is to avoid the whole wedding thing.
Christopher: (sharply) Uh, no, that's not the reason we eloped. We eloped because we love each other and we wanted to get married.
Lorelai: Well, you know what I mean.
Christopher: No, I don't.
Christopher: What is the big deal?
Lorelai: The big deal is I don't want to do it. We're already married.
Christopher: So, that's it.
Christopher: (scoffs) I don't even know why I'm here. It's not like my opinion really matters.
Lorelai: Of course it does.
Christopher: You're gonna do what you wanna do, house, wedding, kids. It's all your call right?
Emily: Are you talking about having more children?
Lorelai: (to Christopher) Thank you.
Emily: (excitedly)No, wait, are you pregnant?
Christopher: (scoffs) Yeah, yeah, that's nice.
Christopher: You don't have to act like it's the most terrible thing in the world.
Lorelai: Can we not talk about this now?
Christopher: Why? You don't wanna be spur of the moment? Let's talk about this.
Emily: Randall, maybe we should give them some privacy.
Randall: Of course.
(they walk off)
Lorelai: What is wrong with you?
Christopher: What is wrong with you?!
Lorelai: Well, you're airing all our business in front of my mother, of all people.
Christopher: What is your problem with the wedding?
Lorelai: We're already married.
Christopher: Exactly! So, what's the big deal? You planned a whole big wedding with that diner guy!
Lorelai: That diner guy?!
Christopher: I'm sorry, should I be showing more respect to a guy that punched me in the face?
Lorelai: Is that what this is about?
Christopher: No, this is about us. At least, that's what I thought. Apparently, it's just about you.
Lorelai: What's that supposed to mean?
Christopher: You know what? I'm going back to work.
Lorelai: No, no, Christopher, wait.

Rent is the Broadway musical-turned-movie written by Jonathan Larson, loosely based on the opera La Boheme. Rent tells the story of eight friends and the year they spend together in the Village. The characters fall in love, battle AIDS and try to accomplish their goals for the year, such as finishing a documentary or writing a song.
Lucy: Congratulations on buying the internet or whatever.
Logan: Thank you, although Al Gore and I are still negotiating, so it's not a done deal yet.
Logan's statement refers to a comment made by Al Gore during the 2000 Presidential Elections where he said that he helped to create the Internet. Gore's comment was the brunt of many jokes thereafter.
Randall: Have you made a list of your favorite music?
Lorelai: No list necessary. It's going to be Burt Bacharach and nothing but.
Burt Bacharach is an award-winning American pianist and composer. He is best known for his many pop hits from 1962-69, co-written with Hal David and sung mostly by Dionne Warwick.
Emily: She's a senior at Yale

Both actresses Meryl Streep and Jodie Foster are Yale graduates.
Chris: We could be the town's dunces.
A Confederacy of Dunces is a novel written by John Kennedy Toole, published in 1980. The title derives from the book's epigraph by Jonathan Swift: "When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him." The book is famous for its rich depiction of New Orleans and the type of dialogue spoken there. Many locals and writers think that it is the best and most accurate depiction of the city in a work of fiction. Not all locals are enamored of it, however; some New Orleanians think it portrays the city and its inhabitants in an unfavorable light.
