Noddies (Scott/Luke) #96: Because he is the best father and father figure

This is the 96th Luke/SP Appreciation thread! :drool:


Noddies = Naughties :eyebrows:

His hat, his truck and his flannel...

...and his hammer.

" LUKE DANES, the owner, is taking a fresh pot off the coffee machine. Duke is a scruffy though handsome man in his thirties with the body of a fireman under that apron. "


Luke: You're harassing me now.

Lorelai: I'm not harassing you. We're your groupies. [in high voice] Oh Luke, you're so dreamy, be my guy!


Lorelai: You don't look so good.

Luke: Thanks.

Lorelai: That's not what I meant. You know you always look good.

Luke: Yeah?

Lorelai: I mean you always look healthy.

Luke: Ok.

Lorelai: But you don't look so healthy now. Now you look...

Luke: Unhealthy.

Lorelai: Yes.

Luke: Ok.

Lorelai: Oh what? So I said you look good. We’re not in 5th grade. 'You look good', big deal. Stop staring at me.



Luke: Hey, I own this business, kid! I built it, this is mine! I'm not at the mercy of some boss waiting and hoping to be chosen employee of the month for a couple extra hundred bucks and a plaque. I'm always employee of the month. I'm employee of the year, of the century, of the universe. You should be so lucky to have a job like mine


LUKE: Look, I've lived in this town my entire life, longer than most everybody here.

BOOTSY: I beg to differ. I'm five weeks older than you, that means I've been here five weeks longer.

LUKE: I've never bothered anyone. I've kept to myself and I've done the best I could. I pay my taxes, and I help people when I can. I haven't pitched in on the decorative pageantry town stuff because it all seems insane to me, but I don't get in the way of that stuff either.


Liz: He's pretty amazing though. No matter how much I screw up, he just keeps fixing it. I need money, he gives me money. No place to live, Luke finds an apartment. Even my kid when I was having trouble with him -- did you ever meet Jess?

Lorelai: Oh yes, I did.

Liz: I tell you, he was hell on wheels. I couldn't do a thing with him. I didn't know what to do, so...

Lorelai: Luke fixed it?

Liz: He tried. He wasn't entirely successful. I don't know, maybe if I had sent Jess to him a little sooner… Well, anyhow, Luke did what he could. He always does. He's like my hero, you know. Like one of those Greek gods with the golden helmets and the shields and the sandals


Kirk: [climbs to feet] Thank you. Thank you! [shouting] I love you, Luke Danes! I love you!

Luke: [muttering to himself] I'm stupid.

Kirk: [yelling loudly] I love you! I love Luke Danes! Love, love!


Lorelai: So, when you went up earlier, you were going to bed. [Luke smiles sleepily] You go to bed early, which makes sense, because you get up early. And, ugh -- now I got it.


LORELAI: You're the perfect man.

LUKE: Thank you.

LORELAI: I used to think it was Kelsey Grammer. But it's not. It's you.


LORELAI: "Once Luke Danes is in your life, he is in your life forever!"

"In the real world, those things happen for a reason and people rebound from them," said Patterson. "It is really a precarious position to be in. I think he'll have to do some soul searching to work his way out of this one. It is not checkmate, but it may be check." [quote from Scott Patterson about Season 7 and Luke dealing with what happened at the end of last season]


"It's gonna be a hot and heavy season for the Lukester. I think I've earned it. I have tolerated all number of indiscretions, insults, and challenges to my manhood, and I have deflected each and every one of them, and I am still standing." [quote from Scott Patterson about Season 5]


Ode to the Hands

Long lean
Tender, not mean
Oh ready to handle the steam...

The Hands
Of our man...
If he can't broil...
No one can...

To drizzle bake or
Nothing says Fashizzle

Like the Hands
Of our man...
He can broil, bake, and cook...
The hand of the man
Is what it took....

To make Lorelai
Wonder why
It took so long
To see he's more than pie

The Hands of of Our Man...Luke.

I like Luke in blue the most I think.

onebreath 06-22-2022 01:56 AM

He does look particularly great in blue.

Talula78 06-22-2022 05:00 AM

I prefer him in red but he also looks great in blue. :)

onebreath 06-22-2022 07:27 AM

He looks great in red, so I hate he never wore much red beyond the early seasons.

stellar_dust 06-22-2022 09:58 AM

I wonder why that is. He does look really good in red.

onebreath 06-22-2022 01:48 PM

Food for thought. Luke did go through a lot in season 7:

Talula78 06-23-2022 05:35 AM

Nah, it doesn’t come off as a personal vendetta against a character and more like what Rosenthal’s idea for what creates real emotional drama that keeps viewers watching. Generally speaking when you raise the stakes for a character it means the payoff will feel more well-earned. I’m not saying that’s the case here but I’d presume that’s what was going through David’s head as he storyboarded the season.

onebreath 06-23-2022 08:15 AM

I actually think Luke had growth in season 7 and all of that was because of what he went through. We see him dealing with the fallout of the LL relationship in a healthy way. Yes, he is in pain in seeing Lorelai "move on" with Christopher, but Luke focuses all his energy on April and that was such a healthly way to deal with the breakup. He isn't faking happiness in a rebound relationship - he is building a relationship with his daughter and then fighting to have a right to be in her life. Had all of those obstacles not been thrown at him, we wouldn't have seen him go through that growth.

I agree with this. I don't like season 7, or there is very little I do like about it, and Luke is one of those things.

onebreath 06-23-2022 12:23 PM

Yeah, I like Luke's story in season 7. Sometimes his scenes are the only scenes I'll watch in episodes.

stellar_dust 06-24-2022 02:52 AM

I love seeing his relationship with April grow. He really embraced the role of being a dad and that is excellent character growth.

Talula78 06-24-2022 05:00 AM

I agree with y’all, I felt Luke had a tremendous amount of character growth in s7. I loved watching him fight for April. :love:
