LORELAI: Go, Luke! Rant, Luke!

LUKE: The whole city is a decaying heap. It’s too many people crammed into too many buildings on too small a piece of land. It’s an experiment that’s failed. They should just give the whole island a push and float it over to Europe.

I will always love you.

and I-I-I will always love you,

RORY: Um... um, wow. Um, wow. I -- wow.

LOGAN: Is there a "yes" in between those "wows"?
Rory to Logan. RORY: Logan… I'm sorry… I can't. I love you. You know how much I love you. I love the idea of being married to you... but... there are just a lot of things right now in my life that are undecided. And that used to scare me, but now I-I kind of like the idea that...it’s just all kind of...wide open. And if I married you, it just wouldn't be.
Thanks you to FNDchairnam for the original list

FNDchairman

This was originally posted on TWoP, but I thought it would be appropriate for me to include it here as well (given the last several posts):

I went through every episode in seasons 1-5 and searched for the term "love you." I then read it in context and included only those that I deemed serious ILY's. (Note: 1-2 non-serious ILY's may have been accidentally included as I did this rather quickly.)

email me if you have any corrections or additions to the list
