This is a collection of quotes from most of the episodes in the Luke/Noah storyline. Below is a list of quotes from episodes that aired in August 2008!
Lucinda: There you are, Darling. And there you are, Darling. Hi. Well, I think I have found you the perfect director for your new foundation.
Lucinda: Well, you said that you felt that Damian’s money was burning a hole in your pocket. So if you want to wait, we can wait, but –
Noah: Absolutely not. You think of like ten ideas an hour for how to help people with that money. If you don’t start soon, you’re gonna drive us both crazy.
Luke: I really wish you weren’t working tonight.
Noah: I’m sprung.
Luke: Awesome! Well, do you want to go say hi to Aaron?
Noah: Well, actually, I was wondering – would you like to go on a date with me, Luke Snyder?
Luke: A date? When?
Luke: But you have to work early tomorrow morning.
Noah: Well, that’s why it’ll be an early date. One hour from now, which will give us enough time to go say hello to Aaron before we change.
Luke: Change? Like – like “Get dressed up all fancy” change?
Noah: It’s a date.
Luke: But why?
Noah: That – right there. That smile. I missed it.
Noah: Isn’t it great? This money you didn’t even want is gonna help so many people.
Luke: Yeah, well, I should thank you. You’re the one who convinced me to take it.
Noah: Well, I had a little help from Lucinda.
Luke: Well, that is true.
Luke: Yeah, it is. I wish Noah was still here. I’m bummed.
Brian: You two are very close.
Luke: Yeah, well, we are now.
Brian: I’m sure it wasn’t always easy.
Luke: Well, what relationship is? So, tell me more about this foundation business. I’m still pretty clueless.
Brian: Well, you know, one thing you should know, the world you’re entering, it can be a conservative place.
Luke: Okay, well, I’ll always remember to bring my suit and tie.
Brian: That’s not exactly what I was talking about. Luke, the philanthropic community, while generous, can be – well, it might not be as accepting as you’d expect.
Luke: Do you mean because I’m gay?
Brian: Personally, I don’t have a problem with it.
Luke: Good for you.
Brian: I’ve offended you.
Luke: You’ve surprised me.
Brian: See, I’m just simply suggesting that you might want to, I don’t know, rethink how open you are about your relationship with Noah.
Luke: You mean you think that I should go back in the closet? No way. No way.
Luke: Do you have any idea how hard it was for me to come out?
Brian: I’m sure it was very difficult.
Luke: It was hell. And it was even worse for Noah. But we finally did it because we were sick of living a lie. And we’re not gonna go back to that – not me, and not Noah.
Noah: You’re back. Where’s dessert? Your mom said she was gonna send us – what’s wrong?
Luke: I want Brian out of the foundation.
Noah: When I left, you guys were toasting him.
Luke: Yeah, well, he said our relationship might be a problem.
Noah: In what way?
Luke: In the gay way. He implied that people might not be too accepting of us.
Noah: Shocker. What else is new?
Luke: Noah, he came out and said that for the sake of the foundation, we shouldn’t go around “advertising” our relationship.
Noah: Well, maybe he’s right.
Luke: Of course he’s right to you. Way to jump right back in the closet, Noah.
Noah: Hey, that’s not cool.
Luke: Look, I know. And I’m sorry. I am. It’s just – how can you be okay with this?
Noah: Because it won’t change anything between us. I don’t want you to quit the foundation because you’re afraid it might. When Brian was telling us his ideas, you lit up in a way I really haven’t seen you do before. And you can’t give that up.
Luke: Yeah, but I feel that it took us so long to get to where we are.
Noah: Hey. We are still right here. Nobody can take it away.
Lucinda: I think we’re an extremely efficient team.
Brian: I do, too. You know, it was Luke who pulled it all together. You have some very strong, coherent ideas.
Noah: Uh, Luke’s been thinking about this 24/7 since he came up with the idea, so –
Lucinda: Well, now that we have such a strong mission statement, there won’t be any problems at all getting big business to contribute.
Luke: Well, unless I do anything inadvertently super gay. Got to keep an eye on that.
Brian: I already apologized for offending you, Luke.
Luke: And yet somehow I’m still offended.
Luke: Remember the first time I did this for you?
Noah: Of course. It was historic for me. That was the first time I ever wore a Windsor. You know, back then, I – I couldn’t imagine a life with you, and now I can’t imagine a life without you.
Luke: Well, lucky for you, Bubby, it’s just beginning.
Noah: Hurry up and get dressed.
Luke: Noah, he wanted me to go back in the closet. He wanted me to sell out my morals just so that we’d get some money. The fact that he’s even willing to bring that up makes me think that he’s done it before in the past.
Luke: Look, Noah, I’ve got to find out the truth.
Noah: You think all will be revealed on some mushroom hunt?
Luke: Well, it’ll be a challenge, right? I mean, those things, they can grow to be, like, what, six inches?
Noah: Oh, yeah.
Luke: What do you think we’ll need to bag one of those suckers?
Noah: I think we’ll need some grenades, some tanks, some mortars. You know, but think how proud we’ll be when we have a giant stuffed mushroom head on our wall.
Luke: Ahh, well, you must really love me a lot to put up with all of this.
Noah: Um, more than a lot. More than anything.
