"When you’re a kid, they tell you: it’s all grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid, and that’s it. The truth is the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker, and so much madder, and so much better."
"Any true pleasure comes with a price. We drink too much; we wake up hungover. We eat too much; we pack on the pounds. You enjoy one moment of lust, and you live a lifetime of guilt. What feels good comes with a cost. At the end of the day, I suppose it’s just a matter of figuring out how much you are willing to pay."
from the “Mooning and Crooning” episode of Eastwick
"If by that you mean that I dislike celebrity magazines, prefer food to anorexia, refuse to watch TV shows about models, and hate the color pink, then yes. I am proud to be not really a girl."
from “A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle” by John Green in Let It Snow.

"I’m a genius, Rory. I have deep and powerful clairvoyant abilities. For example, I can instantly deduce that when someone hears the name Paris in the same sentence with the word “date” jaws will drop, confused looks will cover faces, words like “how” and “why” and “Quick, Bob, get the children in the minivan because the world is obviously coming to an end” will immediately fly out of people’s mouths."
Paris Gellar. From Episode 1, Season 3 of Gilmore Girls.
I often think you could replace the name Paris in this with Jenna have a great understanding of my life.
