Right here in River City!

In S1E14, Taylor Doose is talking to Luke, Lorelai, and Rory about why Luke should spruce up the diner. Taylor says, “When standards slip, families flee, and in comes the seedy crowd. You got trouble, my friends!” Lorelai chimes in, “Right here in River City!”

The Music Man is a hit musical (1957) and 1962 film about a conman who comes to small-town Iowa and scares parents into funding a fake town marching band. He incites fear about a new pool table in the song, “Ya Got Trouble.” The lyrics go,

“Ya got trouble/right here in River City/trouble with a capital ‘T’ and that rhymes with ‘P’ and that stands for pool!”
