Lorelai and Rory are in the living room when Sookie walks in from the kitchen and asks, “Where’s your pate?” Lorelai replies (with no shortage of sass), “At Zsa Zsa Gabor’s house?”
Zsa Zsa Gabor is a celebrity and actress known for playing Jane Avril in the 1952 film, Moulin Rouge. She is well known for having had 9 husbands.
It’s unclear exactly why Lorelai chose to reference Zsa Zsa in regards to pate- possibly because Ms. Gabor was born in Hungary, where pate is more common than in the U.S. Lorelai might simply be referencing Ms. Gabor’s wealth and status, since pate is much more sophisticated than most of the food Lorelai keeps in her house.
It’s also very unclear why Sookie would ever think that Lorelai would have pate in the first place.
