In S1E2, Rory asks Lorelai to go meet the Chilton headmaster with her, but Lorelai didn’t have any clean clothes that morning so she is wearing cutoff shorts, cowboy boots, and a tight tie-dye t-shirt. Lorelai says, “Well, look at me. I can’t meet anybody who does anything in there. No, I look like that chick from ‘The Dukes of Hazzard!'”
“The Dukes of Hazzard” is story about a family’s adventures and shenanigans in Hazzard County, Georgia. It has two main adaptations- a 1979 Television series and a 2005 film.
“That chick” that Lorelai is referring to is the character Daisy Duke, played by Catherine Bach in the TV series and Jessica Simpson in the film. Daisy’s signature cutoff jean shorts are so iconic that the style has been named “daisy dukes.”
