The 25 Best Pop Culture References Ever on 'Gilmore Girls'


Gilmore Girls is our favorite show of all time. One of the things that makes it the best are the pop culture references and quick, witty banter. In every episode, you could guarantee that there would be references that you probably wouldn't understand (I was five when the show first started airing in 2000—there are references that even now I don't understand), but you could still appreciate the way that the characters—Lorelai and Rory, in particular—understood each other so perfectly. These are the best pop culture references from our fave 2000s show. Catch up in time for the revival on November 25!

1. When Emily was being just a little dramatic

Lorelai never put up with Emily's drama. 

2. When Rory was the geek

"What do you want a fake ID for?""So I can vote!" 

3. When Lorelai found out that someone had a crush on Sookie for 10 years

Also, ignore Lorelai's derpy face in this screengrab. 

4. When Luke tried to bring the drama

But Stars Hollow is basically Fairfield, so we get it. 

5. When the Gilmore women remembered the important things in life

They're def not into yoga.

Pretty sure the only person she upset was Lucy and that wasn't even her fault.

Very sure George Clooney in E.R. was more attractive than Rory's E.R. doctor.

11. When Michel complained about people's impressions of him

Talking about Posh and Becks isn't a bad thing at all.

The kids these days, they're cranking Metallica and smoking Korn! 

13. When Reese Witherspoon had Harvard connections

What, like it's hard? 

14.When Lorelai spoke horse

Also remember how freaked out everyone was when she got Paul Anka and everyone reminded her of the animals she had killed in the past? 

15. Paul Anka

Paul Anka the dog, not Paul Anka the person.

16. When Rory got into Chilton

Oops, Rory was an overacheiver again.
