"Alice, Pow! Right To The Moon"
This reference is the winner of a poll I did in my Facebook group. Are you in it?
Emily gets a meeting at the bank for Lorelai, but insists on going with her. Lorelai isn't happy about that and they argue.
The fight ends like this:
LORELAI: I swear, one of these days, Alice. Pow! Right to the moon.
EMILY: What on earth are you talking about? Who's Alice?
The reference comes from yet another black and white sitcom Lorelai seems to know by heart: The Honeymooners!
The sitcom's about 2 couples in the 50's trying to make their lives better.
Ralph and Alice argue a lot, about silly things, and that brings most of the jokes of the show.
For example, it's a recurring joke from Ralph, when he's mad, that he's going to send Alice to the moon one of these days.
As in... with his fist! 😳
Why It's Inappropriate
Obviously, you couldn't make that joke anymore... That clip from Family Guy explains it well 🤣
But coming from Lorelai, talking to Emily, with her legendary sarcasm... I find it quite funny!
"What on earth are you talking about? Who's Alice?"
Good to know, isn't it?
Talk later Cutie Pie,
