Favorite David Quotes:
"I'm always striving to go to the next level and to get the next job and to move up the ladder," he says. "But I'm amazed that I got this far and I'm grateful for what I have now."

"The fans of the show - there's a lot of issues that a lot of young girls have with their fathers so they project a lot of those issues onto me - so sometimes when I'm out they're like 'Why weren't you at Rory's graduation?'" he says. "They're very upset."

“Occasionally, I go on line to see where the audience stands with what Christopher is doing and how they’re reacting.”

How lucky I am to be part of something that has seeped into the conscious of the public. I’m very proud to be part of it"

"Just make sure you’re having as much fun as you can and make people laugh.”

"I play Rory's father. It's a great role because whenever I come in, there's lots of tension, lots of drama, we have very juicy story lines"

"I grew up loving Three's Company and loving John Ritter as Jack Tripper. I got to meet John when I was doing I'm With Her. It was a big deal for me to meet one of my idols."

Favorite Chris Quotes:
CHRISTOPHER: She’s a great kid Lor. I wish I could say I see more of myself in her other than we have similar left ear lobes, but she’s all you - chip off the old....perfect block.

CHRISTOPHER: I haven’t been enough a part of Rory’s life. So I wanna be around more, to be a pal she can depend on. I mean I’m not crazy, I know there’s already a life going on here and God knows she doesn’t need anyone besides you but....if you give me a chance....

CHRISTOPHER: Whoa! Hold it right there. A lady never runs out to meet a gentleman caller who hasn't been announced.

CHRISTOPHER: It's not your fault. Ballroom dancing is a wonderfully sexist thing. Any woman can do it, all she needs is a strong male lead. No offense Dean.

CHRISTOPHER: This town is like one big outpatient mental institution

CHRISTOPHER: Well, I show up everyday, drink bad coffee, exchange lame pleasantries in the break room with Linda from marketing, and then at the end of two weeks they give me a paycheck. It's a pretty cool system.

CHRISTOPHER: No, it's actually pretty interesting. I'm working for this firm that helps those overblown tech companies scale back and stay afloat now that they're facing leaner times.
LORELAI: I'm sorry, uh, what's the interesting part?
CHRISTOPHER: We dress like superheroes when we do it.

CHRISTOPHER: I drove here as fast as I could and I went to the hospital but you guys had already left so I tried your cell phone but all I got was the voice mail so I came here but the place looked dark so I got the key out of the turtle and came in but you guys were already asleep so I just grabbed a chair and. . . and apparently my evil plan worked exactly as I anticipated.

CHRISTOPHER: I think you're awesome, Lor. With everything you do and raising Rory the way you did, you're superwoman.
CHRISTOPHER: Maybe all this stuff we went through - that's the journey we needed to take to end up here.
LORELAI: Maybe.
CHRISTOPHER: Being a family - Mom, Dad, kid, Volvo.
LORELAI: Ugh, the Volvo will have to go.
CHRISTOPHER: It has a nice ring to it.
LORELAI: Yeah, it does. I guess. . .

CHRISTOPHER: Couldn’t sleep. I sweet-talked the maid into leaving me about ten thousand pillow mints and then I proceeded to eat them all.

CHRISTOPHER: It’s all the plants in here, too much oxygen.

CHRISTOPHER: Well, does that mean there’s a chance for a repeat amazing?

CHRISTOPHER: So this morning you woke up and felt sorry about last night?

CHRISTOPHER: Listen, Lor, I just want you to know that I only called you before
because I was desperate. I mean, there was no other reason. I was just
panicked and I didn't think, you know?
LORELAI: Chris, sure.
CHRISTOPHER: I know that I shouldn't have bothered you. I know you have your own
life and your own stuff, and I shouldn't be butting in. But it was just a
one-time thing, you know? So you don't have to worry about it.

CHRISTOPHER: Come on. Let me give you something. A castle in Ireland? A Civil War cannon. A brewery. Yeah! Buy a brewery! That would be cool! You could brew your own beer!

CHRISTOPHER: So, how do I do this? Do I give you the cash, or do I pay Yale? Do they take checks or does it have to be a money order? What is a money order anyway? I mean, how is it different from a check? Isn't a check a piece of paper forwarding money? What's the difference?

CHRISTOPHER: Gigi is completely out of control. I can't say no to her. I'm just - I'm just so - I don't know. I'm so mad at Sherry for taking off like that. I mean, who leaves a kid? Yes, I know. I left a kid. I tell you, Lor. I don't think I really got how you felt about me until now, because I want to kill Sherry!

About Chris-
SOOKIE: I’m looking for a guy that looks like a guy that you could be with, only I’m deducting seventeen years off his age and I’m adding an all-boys private school uniform and a Yankees cap (It Should've Been Lorelai)

Thanks for the thread!

I was looking at the opening post, and I think there's so many things from this season we could update it with. Are there any good season 7 pictures of DS or quotes we should add in?

mmm...good thread I didn't know it existed! good thing...I'll come more often...I like chris a lot and I cannot understand why he has "dissapeared" from the show...it's odd three months ago he was in all the scenes and right now he's nowhere. I can understand he's getting divorced from Loreali but it's not normal the treatment the writers are given to his relation with Rory...come on! he's his father...

Nice to see this thread! great pics!


Cause Stars Hollow is everything except a boring place...

Welcome SpanishJess! Please visit as often as you like.

IA on Chris! We should start a Where's Chris search? The potrayal of him as a father is deplorable. After seeing his growth, we are expected to believe he would just vanish. Whatever!

I really liked Chris in seasons 1 and 2! After that the writers screwed him over because DS refused to committ to GG-not that I blame him right now.

SmashinglySweet- Why don't you like Chris in later seasons????? I feel he is the same charming guy he always was. The only thing I object to with him over the years, is that he likes Logan and they gave Chris an absurd back-story in season 6, saying that that he was a total rat-bag like Logan when he was young. So not Chris. If anything Lorelai was the real brat, and Chris just followed along. Chris always struck me as way committed to high school, as well as just being a gentle and well-mannered boy. Also, I just don't think Chris would like a sef-indulgent, arrogant, self-important jerk like Logan.

Well, I like Logan so I don't think there is anything wrong with Chris liking Logan. I don't think Logan is arrogant and self-important, he's just too used to getting his own way, and he's a bit hot-tempered and impulsive. But I think he means well and just has some growing up to do.

As for Chris, I can see him getting into trouble. Not out of deliberate rebellion, but from a lack of direction or purpose to his life.

But I agree Chris was a better-developed character in Seasons 1 and 2. In Seasons 5 and 6 he was just an obstacle to Luke and Lorelai, someone to drag Lorelai back to her (supposedly) immature and unhealthy past. In Season 7 I don't think the writers did Chris' character justice at all, considering his amount of screentime. We had much better Chris-Rory scenes and learned more about Chris' life outside of Lorelai in Seasons 1 and 2. In Season 7 Chris' presence was only about Lorelai and the writers just had Chris behave in whatever way they needed to further their Chris-Lorelai romance plot.

I think David Sutcliffe gave Chris more depth than he could have had and still made me love Chris, but frankly, they could have done a lot more with his character than have him trailing Lorelai through the streets of Stars Hollow like a lovesick puppy dog, demanding houses, babies and new Christmas stockings ASAP, or ranting about a stupid plot device (aka custody letter).

By the way, although most people don't seem to see it which makes me feel odd for mentioning it, one of the reasons I like Chris-Lorelai interactions (romantic or otherwise) is that, especially when they're happy and having fun around each other, the interactions look real. I sense that a little bit with Rory-Lorelai and Rory-Chris too, but not at all with Luke-Lorelai. Their interactions may be good, convincing acting--but it's still acting, and maybe I look too far beneath the surface of the characters, but I've somehow always seen obvious differences in the types of acting. There were moments (mainly in the early part of the season when Chris and Lorelai were happiest together) when to me it looked like LG and DS weren't really bothering to get into the Chris/Lorelai characters, they were just enjoying being together and simply letting their real feelings show up onscreen. I've heard they are good friends and honestly I don't see how I could believe otherwise. Even the best acting can't match the way two people interact when they really know and like each other, and that's just the sense I get with those two. And it's enjoyable to watch.

That's interesting because season 7 was the only time I liked him even a little bit.
