While Kirk tells Lorelai about his self-made movie, Kirk refers to several of his jobs:
Kirk: It's true. Don't get me wrong, I love the blue collar work. I enjoy the plight of the every man. But as much as the mailed letter delivered and the DSL line installed and the latest J. Lo flick rented fills me with a deep sense of pride, in my soul I am Akira Kurosawa.
But he was not the DSL installer. It was the same actor (Sean Gunn), but another character: Mick as seen in Season 1, episode 2.
