In S1E8, Emily calls Lorelai and tells her that a big storm is coming. Lorelai replies, “Well, don’t panic. I’ll get the ark; you get the animals.”
The story of Noah’s Ark is found in the ancient book of Genesis. In the story, God tells Noah to build a huge ark, or boat. When it’s built, God sends pairs of animals to the ark to be saved from a global flood. Noah and his family also board the ark and are saved while the rest of the world drowns. Similar stories are found in the Quran and the Epic of Gilgamesh.
