Kirk Gleason (Episodes 44 - , recurring previously)
Lorelai says to Rory "He could have been the one" about Luke. She realizes that she pushed too hard, and made mistakes by hiding her friendship with Christopher. This will change her into a better girlfriend if/when Luke takes her back.
When Lorelai and Luke are watching the film in the Black, White and Read movie theatre, she says "Man. They sure talked fast in these things." - This could be a tongue in cheek reference to the fact that Gilmore Girls is famous for it's speedy delivery of dialogue.
In this episode, Lorelai goes to the diner and has a conversation with Luke's cook, Caesar. In this episode and future episodes, Caesar is a short, kind of squat guy but in the 2nd episode, "A-Tisket, A-Tasket", Lorelai runs into the diner in a frenzy looking for Luke there is a different Caesar who is taller and skinnier.
When Rory and Paris are having breakfast in the dining hall, there are two dirty plates sitting beside them when they first sit down. When the other girls come to the table to give them advice, the plates are gone.
During the scene with Rory and Paris talking to Janet and Anthea in the cafeteria, the position of both Rory's and Paris' milk carton and the green menu change.
In the scene where Rory and Logan discuss the "hanging out" matter Logan is shot from the back. Somewhere in the discussion all of a sudden the label of his sweater is visible. Later on it isn't.
In the three different scenes in Logan's dorm room a pair of skis move around the room. In the first scene where Rory comes in and sits down next to Logan the skis are right beside the door frame, on the left. When she wakes up the next morning the skis are in the corner on the left of the couch she was sleeping on. Later on when she visits Logan to "return" Frank the skis have moved again, now about a foot to the left, next to a cabinet.
When Rory first gets home to comfort Lorelai and goes and lays on the bed with her, Rory's hair is down on both sides of her face, but when the shot switches to Lorelai, and back to Rory, the left side of her hair is brushed behind her shoulder, without her having moved her hand to brush it this way.
In the scene where Rory enters Logan's room we see the card table. Next to Robert there is one drink. When the shot cuts over to look over Rory's shoulder, suddenly there are two glasses.
Photographer: There you are. I'd love to get a few more shots in.
Lorelai: Yeah so would I.
Lorelai: Luke, I'm all in. I'm all in. Please trust me, let me show you what a great girlfriend I can be.
(Rory is asking advice about Logan and her) Althea: What was the interruption? Rory: Mom, then Dad, then Mom's boyfriend. Althea: Wow Janet: Poor guy. Rory: OKay, you definitely have to call him.
Rory: I'll have Frank honk when we leave.
Rory: I don't know, it just sounds like fun.
Sookie: Without Lorelai all we have are pancakes, and they're expecting games and stuff!
Michel: I have a fun game! How about we poke out all the doll's eyes and mix them up and they have to match them to the right doll?
Rory: I'll go out and get you something to eat.
Lorelai: I'm not hungry.
Rory: I'll get you some DVD's, too. You want magazines?
Rory: I'll get you some magazines.
Rory: You slept.
Lorelai: I guess.
Rory: Feeling better?
Rory: No you're not.
Lorelai: You should get back to Yale.
Lorelai: Rory, you can't just stay here.
Rory: Sorry, I'm here for the duration.
Luke: Fine, you want to know what I think? Here's what I think. I'm thinking that I can't be in this relationship. It's too much. (he walks away)
Rory: I have to go.
Logan: What happened?
Rory: I just have to go, I have to get home.
Logan: To your dorm?
Rory: Stars Hollow. Oh, no, I don't have my car.
Logan: Well, didn't you walk here, like a hundred yards away?
Rory: No, I mean I took it in for its six month service. It's at the
Logan: You take your car to the dealer? They so rip you off there!
Rory: Well it doesn't matter where it is! I don't have it! Which means that I have to take a bus or a train or something.
Lorelai: I'm so sorry, Luke. I will never do this to you ever again. I am absolutely humiliated. I was hurting, and I knew if I called you you'd come. I never should have done that.
Luke: It's okay.
Lorelai: No, it's not okay. It's not okay. I am not that girl. I am not the one who cries and falls apart and calls her ex-boyfriend to come and save her. Thank you so much for coming, and for breaking my door. You're an
amazing guy for doing that. (hands him a tape)
Luke: What's that?
Lorelai: It's the tape from your answering machine.
Luke: From my answering machine?
Lorelai: The last crazy thing you will ever have to endure from me, I promise. -- I just want you to know that I heard you when you said that you're out. I did. I'm going to respect that from now on.
Lorelai: Hey, Luke, it's me. I know I'm not supposed to be calling, but I am not doing really great right now, and… I was just wondering if, do you remember in 'The Way We Were', how Katie and Hubbell broke up because his friends were joking and laughing, and the president had just died, and she yelled at them and he was mad and he was going out to Hollywood, and, I mean, which she hated, and he broke up with her and she was really upset. And she called him and asked him if he would come over and sit with her because he was her best friend and she needed her best friend, and he did. And they talked all night, and they went out to Hollywood, which was a disaster, but it was good at first. With the boat, and uh, putting the books
away. I've seen this movie a lot, so if you don't remember the putting the books away scene, don't feel stupid or anything. I was just sitting here thinking about it, because I, um, I'm in my house, and I was just, uh… Could - please come over. I - please. Really need to see you and talk to you, and please - come over. Please. Come – Oh, my God.
Paris: Don't forget the raisin bran. It's good for you. Keeps you moving.
Rory: Whatever that means... eww, I just got what that means!
Rory: Where are they, Taylor?
Rory: Don't play dumb. The ribbons!
(Rory grabs the box)
Rory: Take piano lessons or something!
Taylor: She was so sweet when she was little.
Lorelai: (crying, talking about Luke) He could have been the one.
Rory: He'll come around.
Lorelai: God, I really screwed up this time.
Paris: Well, no one called, left a note, smoke signaled, Morse coded,
semaphore flagged or came by. Male, female or hermaphrodite.
Rory: Okay, thanks.
Paris: (getting up) I'm wide awake. It's your fault. You owe me Boggle.
Rory: Paris -
Michel: (talking about the dolls) You're feeding them? They have no opposable thumbs!
Sookie: The girls have no thumbs? Aww! It's a handicapped girls party?
Michel: No, the dolls!
Sookie: Dolls can be handicapped?
French episode title: "Dis Quelque Chose", meaning "Say Something".
Katie Walder appears in this episode as Janet. The last time she was seen was as Rory's roommate in the episode "Last Week Fights, This Week Tights".
This is the second time in which there was a comment made about Barbra Streisand's movie The Way We Were.
- "Dust That Dreams of Brooms" by Aveo
- "Do That There" by Lyrics Born
- "Tequila" by The Champs
- "Under the Boardwalk" by The Drifters
Luke and Lorelai officially break up in this episode. The breakup which occurs due to something at her parents' "wedding" is coincidental because the two of them began dating after attending Liz and T.J.'s wedding and sharing a moment.
The movie that Luke is watching when Lorelai finds him at the Black, White & Read is My Man Godfrey. In the film, a socialite falls in love with her butler.
Say Something, the episode name, is also the name of a song by the rock band James, from Manchester, England.
Rory: Well, I can tell you that I wasn't expecting to be Fanny Brice to your Nicky Arnstein.
Fanny Brice was the real life personality portrayed on stage and film by Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl. Nicky Arnstein was her gambler husband, played by Omar Sharif in the movie version of Funny Girl.
Rory is referring to the scene in which Nicky promises Fanny to earn the money for the two to get married, and Fanny waits up all night for him to finish his poker game and eventually falls asleep on the couch, similar to how Rory waits for Logan and, at some point, falls asleep on the couch.
Dance Dance Revolution
The arcade game that Kirk is playing at the beginning of this episode is the popular video game Dance Dance Revolution, or DDR for short. This game is unique in that the controls are dance pads that you use with your feet.
Paris: With the hair, and the chin like he's the fourth Bee Gee?
The Bee Gees were a trio of singing British brothers who enjoyed a successful career in the 60's and 70's.
Lorelai: I was just wondering if, do you remember in The Way We Were, how Katie and Hubbell broke up...
The Way We Were is a movie about
two people from very different backgrounds have a wonderful romance, but their political views and convictions drive them apart. It features Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford.
Paris: (to Rory, dressed in a suit) What's with being all k. d. lang?
k. d. lang is a lesbian singer/songwriter who frequently dresses in suits.
Rory: They will feel the wrath of the Green Destiny.
Rory quotes the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Green Destiny was the name of a mystical sword, and the young princess who wielded it was virtually invincible.
Colin: Since when did you become Tipper Gore?
Colin asks to change the music and the snide comment about Tipper Gore relates to the fact Tipper headed a committee to put parental warnings on music she and her committee deemed 'inappropriate'.
