I got your “good ship lollipop” right here, mister.

In S1E6, when Lorelai and Rory are at Emily’s party, Lorelai brings Rory a Shirley Temple cocktail. Rory asks what Lorelai is drinking, and Lorelai answers with a sly smile, “A Shirley Temple Black.” Rory sniffs it and says, “Wow.” Lorelai says, “I got your ‘good ship lollipop’ right here, mister.”

“On the Good Ship Lollipop” is a song performed by child star Shirley Temple in the film, “Bright Eyes.” The film was written specifically to showcase the talents of 5-year-old Shirley Temple, and the film’s featured song is Temple’s most well-known.
