Jump back!

In S1E17, Rory and Lorelai are walking around town early on Saturday morning because Rory is avoiding wallowing over her breakup. Rory tells Lorelai that some people voluntarily wake up early on a daily basis. Lorelai says, “Huh! Jump back!” Rory, confused, says, “Excuse me?” Lorelai explains, “Kevin Bacon? Footloose? Reaction to the no-dancing-in-town rule as revealed to him by Chris Penn, brother to Sean, sage to all?”

“Footloose” is a 1984 film starring Kevin Bacon as a teenager named Ren who moves from Chicago to a small town where dancing has been banned. He befriends a classmate named Willard, played by Sean Penn’s brother Chris, and falls in love with the strict Reverend’s daughter. Through Ren’s actions, the ban is lifted and his high school is able to have a prom. (There was a remake of “Footloose” in 2011 starring Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough.)
