Mrs. Kim and Robert Duvall

In S1E12, Rory and Lane get busted lying to their mothers. Rory asks if Lorelai would have lied to Mrs. Kim for them. Lorelai says, “Look. I know Mrs. Kim and Robert Duvall in ‘The Great Santini’ share a striking resemblance, but she is Lane’s mom. She has the right to tell Lane she can’t do something.”

“The Great Santini” is a 1979 film starring Robert Duvall as a successful fighter pilot. Duvall’s character treats his children like soldiers, never giving them breaks and sometimes even humiliating them.
