In S1E9, Lane and Rory are talking about Rory’s love life, and Lane encourages Rory to go talk to Dean. Rory says, “I should do this later.” Lane replies, “No! No, you have to do this now. Rory asks why, and Lane says, “Because, I have to go home soon and my mom threw out our TV when she caught me watching ‘VIP,’ so I’m bored and I need some entertainment.”
“VIP” was a television show starring Pamela Anderson that ran from 1998 to 2002. The series was about Anderson, a bodyguard who accidentally saves lives and defeats bad guys despite her lack of actual bodyguard skills.
