Coffee, the finest organic suspension ever devised. ~ Star Trek: Voyager
“Just as casseroles made with canned string beans and ersatz [Campbell’s] cream of mushroom soup led to Julia Child [Margaret Fulton] and the foodie revolt in the 1960s, so did the ubiquity of Nescafé and other caffeinated insults lead to the birth of the speciality coffee industry”
“The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., “Over the Teacups,” 1891
(Dean and Rory are sitting at a table in Luke’s Diner. Luke refills Rory’s coffee mug)
RORY: Thank you.
LUKE: Do they let kids drink coffee before school?
RORY: Why, do you think it might lead to harder stuff? Lattes, cappucinos…
LUKE: Forget I asked. (walks away)
RORY: Great. Oh, there’s my bus. Sip. (sips coffee) Kiss. (they kiss) And bye.
(Rory exits the diner and runs to catch her bus as Luke walks over to the table)
LUKE: Fast runner.
DEAN: It’s the coffee.
LUKE: Not your face?
DEAN: Excuse me?
LUKE: Sorry, just missed my youth for a second. I’m back. Coffee?
