Everyone on Gilmore Girls is pretty quick and smart, but Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop) is the queen of burns. In each episode she knows exactly what to say to get under people’s skin. So which were the best ones? Here are ten!
1. This read burns so hard.
2. She might love Rory, but she wasn’t exempt.
3. You need to see how ridiculous you look, Lorelai!
4. This is a classic Emily guilt trip.
5. No one disapproves of Rory and walks away unscathed.
6. Miss Manners says only children blow out birthday candles.
7. Stop being awkward, Lorelai.
8. Emily wouldn’t be herself if she didn’t point this out.
9. Lorelai actually helped her out with this one.
10. For when someone keeps messing with the car windows.
