Look, Officer Krupke, she’s right over there.

In S1E1, Lorelai goes to the counter at Luke’s to ask for a coffee for Rory. Luke doesn’t want to give it to her because he thinks it’s actually for Lorelai, but Lorelai says, “Look, Officer Krupke, she’s right over there.”

Officer Krupke is a character from the musical “West Side Story.” He is a police sergeant working in the Upper West Side neighborhood. He is featured in the song, “Gee Officer Krupke,” in which the Jets mockingly make excuses for their bad behavior.
