Emily Gilmore: That’s a pretty color. What is that?
Lorelai Gilmore: It’s called “Vicious Trollop”.
Emily Gilmore: Oh stop it.
Lorelai Gilmore: [holds up the lipstick tube for Emily’s inspection]
Emily Gilmore: Now why would you name a lipstick something like that?
Lorelai Gilmore: ‘Cause “Dirty Whore” was taken?
Emily Gilmore: You frighten me.
Lorelai Gilmore: Wanna try some?
Emily Gilmore: No thank you!
Lorelai Gilmore: Come on, mom, try it.
Emily Gilmore: It won’t look good on me.
Lorelai Gilmore: Sure it will!
Emily Gilmore: Well all right. But if I look ridiculous …
Lorelai Gilmore: I’ll be the first one to point it out.
Lorelai Gilmore: You’re a Vicious Trollop, you’re a Vicious Trollop…
Emily Gilmore: Lorelai.
Lorelai Gilmore: Sorry.
