The “Mommie Dearest” treatment.

In S1E1, the day after Rory and Lorelai argue about Chilton, Rory meets Lorelai at the Independence Inn but is still acting cold toward her mother. Lorelai says, “Aw, you’re not going to give me the ‘Mommie Dearest’ treatment forever, are ya?”

“Mommie Dearest” is a 1981 film based on the real life of actress Joan Crawford. Joan, an unstable perfectionist actress, adopts two children. She is highly abusive, screaming at her daughter, beating her, cutting off chunks of her hair, and isolating her.
