I’m gonna “Romeo and Juliet” them both.

In S1E12, Lorelai and Rory are talking about how great it is that Sookie and Jackson are dating. Lorelai says, “Of course, if she tells me the story of how Jackson cultivates his own mealworms to help fertilize his plants one more time, I’m gonna ‘Romeo and Juliet’ them both.”

“Romeo and Juliet” is a tragic play written by Shakespeare about forbidden love. Juliet fakes her death to avoid an unwanted marriage, but Romeo is not told about the plan. Thinking that his dear Juliet has killed herself, Romeo drinks poison and dies. Juliet then finds Romeo dead and stabs herself out of grief.
