Yeah, I love that Jim Carrey!

In S1E5, Lorelai and Sookie are having lunch in the diner, and Lorelai says wistfully, “Life is a funny, funny thing, huh?” Sookie, not catching on, responds, “Yeah, I love that Jim Carrey!”

Jim Carrey is a comedian and actor. At the time Gilmore Girls season 1 aired, Carrey was already known for several films, including “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “Dumb and Dumber,” “The Truman Show,” and “Man on the Moon.” His comedy style tends to be very physical and slapstick, so it’s no wonder Sookie likes him, being so clumsy herself.
