**Memorable quotes from this episode of Gilmore Girls:
- Luke: “In the dance of life, each week brings its rhythm, sometimes a fight, sometimes a waltz, each step crucial, each movement telling a story.”
- Rory: “Growing up isn’t merely a passage of time; it’s a collection of choices, of saying no when the heart wavers, of standing firm when the world swirls.”
- Lorelai: “Dreams nearing reality are like dawn breaking; there’s excitement in the light, but also the anxiety of a new day.”
- Jess: “Impulsivity is the language of the restless heart, speaking in bursts, in hopes, often unanchored and fleeting.”
- Luke: “Weddings are not just unions of two hearts; they are tapestries of hope, love, and the eternal promise of togetherness.”
