This is the monolith from 2001!

In S1E15, Christopher asks Rory what the book of her dreams is, so he can buy it for her. She tells him that it’s the Compact Oxford English Dictionary. Christopher yells to Andrew, “One Compact Oxford English Dictionary, please!” When Christopher sees it, he says, “Holy mother, this is the monolith from 2001!”
“2001: A Space Odyssey” is a 1968 sci-fi film about a mysterious black monolith that exerts power over mankind. It is often called one of the greatest films of all time.

(Also, just for reference, a new copy of the Compact Oxford English Dictionary costs about $350 today.)
