It’s like a damned Dickens novel!

In S1E15, Lorelai is avoiding telling Sookie about Christopher by talking about her broken toaster. She says, “It’s been cold pop-tarts for a week; it’s like a damned Dickens novel!”

Charles Dickens was a 19th century English novelist, famous for many works including “A Christmas Carol,” “Oliver Twist,” “A Tale of Two Cities,” and “David Copperfield.” Dickens’ stories frequently feature themes of poverty and oppression, such as the poor orphans and street urchins in “Oliver Twist,” the Cratchet family in “A Christmas Carol,” and Gaspard in “A Tale of Two Cities.”
