"Suddenly I'm living with Zsa Zsa Gabor."
Lorelai killed the battery of her car doing many things wrong! When she realizes she can’t use her car that morning, her and Rory have this very obnoxious (in a good way! 😂) dialogue:
RORY: You gonna walk?
LORELAI: I'm wearing heels.
RORY: Change your shoes.
LORELAI: I'd have to change my outfit.
RORY: Change your outfit.
LORELAI: I'd have to walk upstairs.
RORY: Suddenly I'm living with Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Zsa Zsa Gabor was a Hungarian-American film and television actress and socialite.
She's well-known for her fancy, extravagant lifestyle, which explains why the girls regularly reference her to describe overly dramatic or pretentious behaviour (or food!).
On the internet, she's often compared to Kim Kardashian, as in Kim didn’t invent anything. She was an actress, but also she was famous for being famous.
Her marriage history's a good testimony of that: she got married no less than 9 times!
The Queen of Outer Space
She starred in Queen of Outer Space, the movie the girls see at the Black-White-Read bookstore/movie theatre, that time when Luke and Rachel are also there in season 1, Episode 19.
"At Zsa Zsa Gabor's house"
Lorelai mentions Zsa Zsa Gabor too, in the pilot episode. Sookie and her are talking about dinner and...
SOOKIE: Where's your paté?
LORELAI: At Zsa Zsa Gabor's house 👸
Now you know who she's talking about!
Here’s a video of her showing her house and bedroom. It’s quite decadent and funny, if you wish to see her talk and learn more about her.
I hope you enjoyed learning about Zsa Zsa and her ways.
She’s easy to reference in real life too. Anything fancy or pretentious happens, you can compare it to her or her lifestyle!
We'll talk next week Cutie Pie! 👠
