Have you not seen “The Shining,” Mom?

In S1E2, Lorelai confronts Emily about the DSL that Emily tried to have installed. Lorelai gives this lovely little monologue:

“We like our internet slow., okay? We can turn it on, walk around, do a little dance, make a sandwich. With DSL, there’s no dancing, no walking, and we’d starve! It’d be all work and no play. Have you not seen ‘The Shining,’ Mom?”

“The Shining” is a 1980 horror film based on a Stephen King novel. The film’s main character, Jack, is driven insane by ghosts, and his wife finds his typewriter full of paper that reads, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” over and over. Jack goes on a murderous rampage and eventually freezes to death.
