In S1E16, Dean and Rory are eating at Andeloro’s for their three month anniversary, and Dean is just staring at Rory while she eats tiramisu. When she asks him why, he says, “You eat cute!” She responds, “No one eats cute. Bambi, maybe, but he’s a cartoon.”
Bambi is the title character from Disney’s 1942 animated film. Bambi is a white-tailed deer, and the story follows his life from young fawn to Great Prince of the Forest. Between Bambi and his friends, Thumper the rabbit and Flower the skunk, the film is almost too adorable to handle.
