Gilmore Girls – The Kid Code

LORELAI: Thanks. Uh, well, here’s the good news. You no longer have to worry about which college to go to ‘cause that cab ride was your college tuition.
RORY: Can we not say the word college for at least forty-eight hours?
RORY: Thank you.
LORELAI: How ‘bout collage, can we say collage? ‘Cause it sounds the same but it’s actually very different.
RORY: Collage is fine.
LORELAI: Okay, good, ‘cause I don’t even know how to get through a conversation without the word collage.
RORY: I should’ve listened to you about today.
LORELAI: Oh, no. There’s no way even I could’ve seen this one coming.
RORY: I can’t believe I had a meeting at Yale today.
LORELAI: I know.
RORY: And I can’t believe the only name that popped into my head when he asked for my role model was Gloria Estefan.
LORELAI: Well, you don’t work great under pressure.
RORY: Sucky day.
LORELAI: But excellent tacos.
RORY: Yeah, Hector really came through.
LUKE: What are you doing?
LORELAI: We’re coming from a day with my parents. Want a taco?
LUKE: Uh, no thanks. See, I already have food here. We sell it to the other customers who don’t come quite as prepared as the two of you.
LORELAI: Mm, be nice and get us some salsa.
LUKE: At least order a cup of coffee.
RORY: Coffee and tacos?
LORELAI: Sounds just gross enough to work.
LUKE: Please, I’ll finish it – hi, hi, hi, hi, hi. I’m getting the coffee.
JESS: I gotta run out for a second and get a part for my car.
LUKE: Get a receipt this time.
JESS: I’ll be back.
LORELAI: Hey Luke, what’s the record for most tacos eaten in a diner that doesn’t actually sell tacos?
LUKE: I have no idea.
LORELAI: Find out, will you, ‘cause if it’s less than five, we’re famous.
LUKE: Where’d you get those things anyhow?
LORELAI: New Haven.
LUKE: Really? That dump was close?
LORELAI: We paid a little visit to Yale today.
RORY: Yes, one that I would prefer not to relive, thank you very much. I’m gonna go study.
LORELAI: Okay hon, see you back home.
RORY: Bye Luke.
LUKE: Bye.
LUKE: Uh, listen, I just want you to know that I had a little talk with Jess earlier.
LORELAI: You did?
LUKE: Yes, I did, and I really laid down the rules concerning him and Rory. Trust me, he now knows that I am going to be watching them every second they are together.
LORELAI: Oh good.
LUKE: Yup.
LORELAI: You know, they’re together now.
LUKE: What?
LORELAI: Oh yeah. ‘I have to get a part for my car’, ‘I’m going to go study’ – that’s kid code for ‘Meet me at the previously agreed upon location far away from my clueless uncle.’
LUKE: You’re kidding me, right? You don’t really think that. . .damn, they are! They’re together. They used the kid code and now they’re together!
LORELAI: It’s okay, Luke.
LUKE: It’s okay, Luke? They are out there right now doing God knows what, completely unsupervised. How did you let this happen?
LUKE: Yes, you. I thought you were against this.
LORELAI: I thought you were all, ‘This is so great and Rory’s gonna change Jess.’
LUKE: What is she, a miracle worker? Come on, Lorelai, wake up – the guy’s trouble. I have to find ‘em. Caesar, I’ll be back in a little while.
LORELAI: You’re seriously gonna run all over town looking for Jess and Rory?
LUKE: If I have to, yes. And if you were really a concerned mother, you’d go out there with me.
LORELAI: No, I can’t do that. But if you like, I’ll let you sniff Rory’s sweater. Maybe her scent will help you track them down.
LUKE: The things you find amusing astound me sometimes.
LORELAI: You’re not really gonna sniff it.
LUKE: No, it’s cold out. She might need it.
