Sookie St. James: Not crying, right?
Lorelai Gilmore: Not crying. Keeping our cool so we don’t miss anything.
Sookie St. James: Tears get in your eyes.
Lorelai Gilmore: And you miss things.
Sookie St. James: So we’re not crying.
Lorelai Gilmore: Not crying.
Sookie St. James: [to Jackson] Not crying.
Jackson Belleville: Not crying.
Jackson Belleville: [to Luke] Not crying.
Luke Danes: What?
Lorelai Gilmore: No crying.
Luke Danes: I’m not crying.
Sookie St. James: Uh, oh …
Lorelai Gilmore: Hang in there.
Sookie St. James: Not crying.
Lorelai Gilmore: Crying a little.
Sookie St. James: Crying a little, but not blubbering. That’s what we meant when we said no crying. No blubbering.
Sookie St. James: On the verge of blubbering here.
Jackson Belleville: Not doing too well myself.
Lorelai Gilmore: [to Luke] Not you, too.
Luke Danes: I’m blubbering. You’re freaks!
