Fresh in my first lifetime as Joan of Arc.

In S1E4, Lorelai walks into the kitchen and Sookie tells here there’s fresh coffee. However, Lorelai picks up the coffee pot and it’s empty except for some burnt coffee on the bottom, so she says, “Fresh in my first lifetime as Joan of Arc.”

Joan of Arc is a French saint and warrior who helped France gain independence from England in the early 1400’s. She led several victories against the English, but was captured and burned at the stake in 1431. She is noteworthy because she was only a teenager when she fought and died, because she was a woman, and because she fought based on religious conviction and motivated many others to do the same.
