Employ 6 individual cones of silence…

In S1E15, Lorelai and Christopher are talking about their disaster of an evening with their parents. Christopher says, “Next time we get this group together we’re going to have to frisk for weapons.” Lorelai chimes in, “Hand out gags…” Christopher continues, “Employ 6 individual cones of silence!”

The cone of silence is a security device from the 1965 television series “Get Smart.” The cone of silence is a joke because it works the opposite of how it is supposed to: the people inside the cone of silence cannot hear each other, but everyone outside the cone can hear them. Of course, if everyone was in a cone of silence, no one would be able to hear anything.
