Gilmore Girls

Season 3 Episode 6

Take the Deviled Eggs...

Aired Tuesday 8:00 PM Nov 05, 2002 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • Kirk complains about not being allowed to drive a car, but in the last episode of season 2, his car was blocked in by Christopher's car at Sookie's rehearsal dinner. Clearly, he was driving at some point.

    • Why is Jess's car littered with about two dozen perfectly-spaced, perfectly-round egg marks?
      The girls only threw about three apiece on the hood of the car, not the sides. Deviled eggs would crumble so why is it all over his car as if they were wet? Even if they were real eggs thrown, it wouldn't show up as a hyper yellow color.

    • At Sherry's baby shower, Sherry says she is "not a baby person" and her friends confirmed that they were surprised to hear she was pregnant. But in "It Should've Been Lorelai," Rory tells Lorelai that when she and Sherry were on their "bonding" excursion, Sherry said she wanted a baby so much she was considering artificial insemination before she met Christopher.

    • We never find out what the "Town Loner" was protesting about because his banner ripped and the town could not hear what he was shouting from the church.

    • When Sherry and Lorelai are talking, Sherry's plate keeps turning. She also has deviled eggs, but there is one shot where they are not on her plate.

    • Lorelai jokes that she got parenting tips from the movie For Keeps? but that was made in 1988, and since Rory turned 16 in 2000, she was born in 1984.

    • Goof: Why is everyone so upset by Jess having a car because he smashed Rory's car and now she doesn't have one? Richard was very against Dean giving Rory the car, but when he finally agreed, it's very likely that he made sure it was properly insured. He works in insurance! So when the car got smashed, Rory would have recieved some insurance money to pay for the repairs.

    • When Jess sees his car after Lorelai and Rory return from Boston, there are more eggs on the car than they actually threw.

  • Quotes

    • Sherry: Oh it's a Mobil! I love it Gail. Thank you.
      Lorelai: Green, again
      Sherry: Pretty green too!
      Lorelai: Wasn't it suppose to be pink? Pink for a girl?
      Gail: Pink is out!
      Susan:It's last week
      Maureen:It's in all the magazines
      Sherry: Green is the new pink!

    • (Jess has just admitted he works at Wal-Mart)
      Luke: Do you wear a blue vest?
      Jess: It's the uniform.
      Luke: Sneak out of here, wearing a little blue vest...
      Jess: It's not little.
      Luke: Get to work, put your vest on...
      Jess: Will you stop talking about the vest!
      Luke:(Chuckles, stands behind Jess, watching him eat apple pie) You're like the all-American boy.
      Jess: Call me Dirk Square Jaw.
      Luke: You're sitting there, eating apple pie...
      Jess:(puts down pie, gets up) That's it, I'm going out.
      Luke: And wave a flag over your head and sing "God Bless America!" Please!
      Jess: Goodbye!

    • Jess: Why are you going through my stuff?
      Luke: What?
      Jess: Why are you going through my stuff?
      Luke: I'm not.
      Jess: So someone else is?
      Luke: I don't know what you're talking about.
      Jess: Everything I own is in a slightly different place than when I saw it last. Now why are you going through my stuff?
      Luke: For your own good.
      Jess: "For my own good?" Could we be a little more totalitarian here?

    • Gypsy: Guys are stupid.
      Luke: What?
      Gypsy: You strip your gears, ride your brakes. And if we don't laugh after we make a joke, you think we're serious.
      Jackson: But I don't ride my brakes!

    • Luke: (about Jess's new car) Where'd ya get the money?
      Jess: Mugged an old lady.

    • Lorelai: (about Jess's new car) Where'd he get it?
      Luke: He got it from a guy, uhh..around here, at a place.
      Lorelai: A guy, at a place, you had no idea he had a car, did you?
      Luke: Not the least.
      Lorelai: Uh, way to have a handle on things Luke!
      Luke: Well, he's got a license, what can I do?
      Lorelai: Stop him, before he kills!

    • Kirk: Man, I wish my mom would let me have a car...or a bike...or my roller skates back.

    • Taylor: I just want to thank you for wasting my time!

    • Lorelai: Wait, was that a siren?
      Rory: I didn't hear anything.
      Lorelai: Neither did I, but it seemed like a cool thing to say at that moment.
      Rory: It was.
      Lorelai: Hey, lets go back and speed off like we did something really awful and the cops are after us!
      Rory: Run!

    • Lorelai: But he's our Boo Radley! And we don't have a Boo Radley...unless you count the town troubador, Pete the pizza guy, and that guy who talks to mail boxes.
      Rory: All we're saying is this: a town needs as many Boo Radleys as they can get.
      Lorelai: Yes! That's my point.

    • Lorelai: Hey, maybe that's the Town Loner's point. That, like, he's protesting man's inability to communicate by not communicating and getting us all to talk about communication.
      Rory: Whoa, you are blowin' my mind here.

    • Lorelai: "All I want's a ballerina." Poor thing's gonna pop out of her womb and land in a tutu.
      Rory: Boy, I hope not.
      Lorelai: And what is with that name – Gigi?
      Rory: It's a cute name.
      Lorelai: It is, 'cause she's copying me there, too. Rory, Gigi, Rory, Gigi. They're identical.
      Rory: They are not identical.
      Lorelai: Two syllables, repeating consonants. Rory... Gigi.
      Rory: Oprah, Uma.
      Lorelai: Don't mock.

    • Luke: Do you get a store discount?
      Jess: Fifteen percent. And if you want fifteen percent off anything, you're not gonna get it 'cause you're being a jerk.
      Luke: My enjoyment is worth the loss.

    • Andrew: I'd rather have bird crap fall on my head.
      Lorelai: There it is – our new town slogan.
      Rory: I like it.
      Lorelai: I see coffee mugs, T-shirts.
      Rory: Don't forget stuffed shish-kabobbed birds.
      Lorelai: That moan when you squeeze 'em.

    • Lorelai: Hey, what do you know about this town loner guy?
      Luke: Same as everyone. Just kinda skulks around with that backpack. Never smiles.
      Lorelai: Does he also make cheeseburgers and secretly harbor a desire to wear a backwards baseball cap?

    • Rory: I can go from zero to studying in less than 60 seconds.

    • Kirk: Man, that car's a honey. Dual piston cams, diplex overdrive with maximum torque, sixteen liter side-by-side firing three on one. Sweet.
      Luke: Kirk, none of that makes any sense. I know a little about cars. That was all gibberish.
      Kirk: Would you mind not telling people about this? I've cultivated a reputation as sort of a car aficionado, and in reality all I have is a Jan and Dean record. I should probably listen to it again.
      Luke: Yeah, I would.

    • Archie: (about Taylor) Maybe the Shakers in Woodbury would take him.
      David: Yeah, he's already got the beard. (to Taylor) Can you make furniture, Taylor?

    • (Talking to Gypsy about Jess' new car)
      Luke: He paid you for it, right?
      Gypsy: Nothing's free at Gypsy's.
      Luke: And he paid cash?
      Gypsy: Mostly twenties.
      Luke: Did you make sure Andrew Jackson was on the bills, not Alfred E. Newman or someone?
      Gypsy: Looked real to me.
      Luke: Well, when he took the money out of wherever he had it, did a mask or a gun fall out?
      Gypsy: No, but he was carrying it in a canvas bag with a big dollar sign on it.
      Luke: Really?
      Gypsy: No.
      Luke: Good.
      Gypsy: Guys are stupid.

    • Luke: I wasn't here last night.
      Jess: But you are always here, Uncle Luke, in my heart.

    • (The town is observing the Town Loner's protest)
      Luke: What's he carrying?
      Miss Patty: Something all rolled up.
      Taylor: Probably a body.
      Rory: It looks heavy too.
      Lorelai: Well, bodies are heavy.
      Taylor: That's not funny.

    • Taylor: (talking about the Revolution) No one likes the British.

    • Archie: The church is exempt from your town statutes Taylor.
      David: We answer to a higher authority, like the hotdog.
      Archie: I laugh every time you say that.
      Taylor: I can guarantee that God does not want this either.
      Archie: Did you hear that David? Taylor Doose is in direct communication with God.
      David: 30 years I'm working for God. I haven't got even a card.
      Archie: Is it by phone that you speak with him Taylor?
      David: Do you have a God phone Taylor?

    • (at the town meeting after Taylor gives his speech on the bird)
      Babette: You get dumped on Taylor?
      Taylor: It's not just me.
      Luke: If anybody has a picture of Taylor being dumped on. I'll pay top dollar.
      Kirk: I'll check the Internet.

    • Rory: These catalogs will be here forever.
      Lorelai: No they won't, they're biodegradable.

    • Lorelai: This is a stack of identical catalogs mailed to Lorelai Gilmore, Rory Gilmore, Lorelai Rory Gilmore, Lorelai V Gilmore, Lorelai Victoria Gilmore, Lorelai Gilmo, Lorelai Gil and Squeegy Beckinheim.
      Rory: How'd that get in there?
      Lorelai: I once told the store that my name was Squeegy Beckinheim just to see how many catalogs they'd sell my name to. And apparently, my name is to catalog companies what Brooke Shield's picture is to Chinese Restaurants.
      Rory: How many?
      Lorelai: 10.
      Rory: Wow.

    • Lorelai: Not according to Sherry. She made a very persuasive argument that if we left at six, there'd be an extra hour of sitting in traffic, so by leaving at seven we'd get home at the same time as leaving at six.
      Rory: She's very up on traffic flow and rush hour and all that.
      Lorelai: She's Rand McNally.
      Rory: She should do traffic reports on the radio.
      Lorelai: "Hi, this is Sherry Tinsdale. Looks like there's a tie-up on the boulevard. They appear to be moving every building in Harvard University so now it's just one point three miles from my house. Nice job, guys."
      Rory: You're awful.
      Lorelai: "Oh, and lots of cars stopped at a blue light on Garvey Avenue. Why a blue light? Well, 'cause blue's the new red."

    • Gypsy: You ride your brakes. Bad for the truck, good for me. I like replacing brakes. Pays for the cable TV.
      Jackson: No problem. How 'bout I just make the check out directly to your cable company, would that be easier for you?
      Gypsy: Yeah, thanks. And get some extra checks 'cause you're gonna be making one out to my milkman, too. Oh, and looky here, you just bought me a couch.

    • Lorelai: I never want to leave this town.

    • Rory: What should our S.O.S. signal be?
      Lorelai: How about 'S.O.S.'?
      Rory: Perfect.

    • Lorelai: (about Jess' new car) Maybe it was a gift from someone who doesn't know it's gone yet.

    • Taylor: Seeing how our attention spans are 'gnat-like' today...

    • Taylor: (at town meeting) Birds have been relieving themselves on innocent passers-by, and studies have shown that they may be doing it on purpose.

    • Lorelai: (to Rory) I'm like the Army, baby. I accomplish more before 9 A.M. than most people do all day!

    • Jess: I go to a place that gives me money.
      Luke: For what?
      Jess: For my services.
      Luke: What services? What place? (pause) Jess, are you a gigolo?
      Jess: What?

    • Rory: (to Jess) Oh, and by the way, you left your bra in the back seat.

    • Kirk: Man, I wish my mom would let me have a car...or a bike...or my roller skates back.

    • Luke: Money for gas?
      Jess: You mean this didn't come with a never empty magical tank?

    • Jess: Geez, how Andy Griffith is this town that people get so excited by a car?

    • Lorelai: Aren't baby shower balloons supposed to reflect the sex of the baby? Blue for boys, pink for girls?
      Rory: You would think.
      Lorelai: What's green for -- aliens?

    • Jess: (about the car) I bought it.
      Lane: Really? I thought you might've built it from cars you've totaled.

    • Lorelai: I just want to rearrange her whole house.
      Rory: You can't do that.
      Lorelai: Please, just let me mess up her bed. You make a distraction like setting a fire, and I'll go up and uncolor coordinate her sheets.
      Rory: I think the fire would be the thing that she would remember.
