9 'Gilmore Girls' Quotes That Sum Up Just How Much You're Dreading The End Of Summer

In one memorable episode from Season 3 of Gilmore Girls, Lorelai has a dream that she lives with Luke. This happens long before the eventual coupling of the world's best couple, and so in Season 3, the dream is chalked up to summer haze. The episode is even called "Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days," named after the Nat King Cole song, "Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer." And since seasons play such a big part in the mother-daughter comedy of the early 2000s, it's only right to sum up the end of summer with Gilmore Girls quotes.

Sure, winter is kind of Lorelai's jam, and it always seems like Stars Hollow is perpetually boasting the quintessential New England fall foliage, but the episode from Season 3 during which Lorelai dreams of a life with Luke proves that summer is the background for so many pivotal moments in Gilmore Girls. While some shows never reveal the actual timeline of events in relation to the earth's rotation around the sun, Gilmore Girls provides audiences with a keen sense of awareness of the show's time of year. It also provides audiences with the perfect quotes to sum up how it feels to prepare for the end of the warmest season of the year.
