In S1E16, Chase Bradford tells Emily that because of a computer model at his work, he could “practically pinpoint” the day she was going to die. Lorelai says cheerfully, “Go ahead! Ask her the questions!” Emily says, “I think I’ll pass.” Chase answers, “No, NO, Lorelai. I’d have to feed the information into a computer to get the answer. I’m no Kreskin!”
The Amazing Kreskin was an American mentalist who had a television show, “The Amazing World of Kreskin” from 1970 to 1975. He also frequently appeared on “The Tonight Show” and other late night talk shows. Kreskin does not claim to have any psychic or supernatural ability; he performs his tricks through observation and suggestion.
