“The Portable Dorothy Parker”

In S1E9, Dean discovers that Rory takes a book with her everywhere, even to the school dance. Dean asks what she’s reading, and she says, “The Portable Dorothy Parker.” Dean then reads this poem:

“There’s little in taking or giving, there’s little in water or wine, this living, this living, this living, was never a project of mine.”

Dorothy Parker, born in 1893, was an American poet and screenwriter known for her satire and wit. In the 40’s, she was accused of being a Communist and blacklisted by Hollywood. Parker willed her estate to Martin Luther King Jr., and it was passed on to the NAACP after his death.
