    • Lorelai: Okay, I have now finished going through every single one of these movies. I've read them, reviewed their merits, and I'm proud to announce that I have chosen our movie. How does The Yearling sound to you?
      Rory: Perfect.
      Lorelai: And buh-bye.
      (There is a knock at the door)
      Lorelai: Oh, that must be Pauline Kael rising from the dead.
      Rory: Tell her hey.

      Pauline Kael was a film critic who published her movie reviews in The New Yorker magazine from 1968-1991. She died in 2001.
