'Gilmore Girls' Thanksgiving

13 ‘Gilmore Girls’ Thanksgiving Quotes That Capture Your ~Quirky~ Vibe

The CW

Gilmore Girls is the perfect Thanksgiving TV show. It's set in Stars Hollow, which is maybe the coziest, most autumn-hued town ever show on TV. The entire setting feels like a one giant (albeit sometimes overly talkative) family. And to top it all off, the titular Gilmores have a near-magical ability to eat anything and everything. All of that together creates the quintessential Thanksgiving vibe. That's why these Gilmore Girls Thanksgiving quotes for Instagram captions will make your holiday posts really shine with that extra bit of Gilmore charm.

The Gilmore girls celebrate Thanksgiving a few times throughout the show's seven seasons (plus the four-part mini-series followup in 2016). But there's one episode in particular that really bursts at the seams with Thanksgiving energy. In Season 3, Episode 9, "A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving," Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) try to squeeze four Thanksgiving dinners into one jam-packed day. They visit Luke (Scott Patterson), Sookie (Melissa McCarthy), Emily (Kelly Bishop) and Richard (Edward Herrmann), and Lane (Keiko Agena), so the episode features a full cast of quotable Gilmore Girls characters. The quotes from that episode — and plenty of other festive Gilmore Girls moments — will make for the perfect cute and funny IG caption on any of your Turkey Day posts this year.
