To me, you are the teacher in a Charlie Brown cartoon.

In S1E3, Lorelai is telling Michel about Rory’s golfing day with Richard when she suddenly stops and says, “You don’t care at all, do you?” Michel, precious sassy French concierge Michel, replies, “To me, you are the teacher in a Charlie Brown cartoon.”

Wah wah wah wah wah.

In Charlie Brown cartoons, whenever an adult speaks, a trombone is used to create the effect of a droning voice. Miss Othmar, a schoolteacher, is often given this trombone voice that the audience can’t understand, though the students hear and respond to the voice normally.
