22 Day Rory/Jess challenge | Day 16 – Favorite general Rory/Jess quote; 2x21 Lorelai’s Graduation Day

Jess: I said, why did you come here? I mean, you ditched school and everything. That’s so not you. Why’d you do it?
Rory: Because you didn’t say goodbye.

Ahhh, so perfect. It’s my ultimate favorite Literati quote because to me, it describes their releationship in the fullest way. To me it means that no matter what happens between them, no matter how far away from each other they currently are, they’ll always find their way back to each other. Because it’ll never be over, not really. Notice how there is no goodbye in 6x18 either - because I think that deep down inside, they always knew it as well. That it’s not the end and that it’ll never be.

22 Day Rory/Jess challenge | Day 15 – Favorite Rory quote about/to Jess; 2x19 Teach Me Tonight

RORY: Serious question?
JESS: Okay.
RORY: You know you’re smarter than most everybody at your school. It takes you like five minutes to finish a book. You read everything, you remember everything, you could ace those classes easily. Why don’t you? You don’t need a tutor. It’s crazy that they’re talking about leaving you back. (…) You can do anything you wanted, you can be anything you wanted.
(…)
JESS: Okay, so I just go straight and we’ll be back at Luke’s.
RORY: Good sense of direction.
JESS: Of course, I could turn right and then we’d just be driving around in circles for awhile.
RORY: Turn right.
JESS: As you wish.

I love this entire scene to bits. I love how there is a lot of smiling and flirting and joking around but also so much support they give each other. Rory has always believed in him and she didn’t buy his ‘i don’t care about anything and anyone’ attitude and she wasn’t afraid to talk about it. Jess’ “I’ll help you practice” comment was the cutest and the “turn right” part was so damn great. Just look at the smile on his face after she says it ♥ I said it before and I’ll say it again - Jess made it obvious he liked her but he waited for her to realize it and take initiative and he wanted it to be HER choice. Her 'turn right’ answer was kind of perfect because I think this is the first time she made it so obvious she liked to spend time with him and not because he tricked her into it but because she wanted to be there and with him.
