In S1E9, Rory suggests that she and Lorelai stay in the hostel that used to be Vaclav Havel‘s cell. Lorelai responds, “Absolutely. Then we should go to Turkey and stay in that place from ‘Midnight Express.'”

“Midnight Express” is a 1978 film based on the true story of Billy Hayes, an American who was imprisoned in Turkey for trying to smuggle drugs out of the country. The film was criticized for portraying Turks in too negative a light, but nonetheless, the prison is depicted as horrifying and brutal.
