‘Gilmore Girls’: A ‘Godfather’ Reference From Every Season

Amy Sherman-Palladino is known for writing pop culture references into her TV shows. Case in point: Gilmore’s daughters. Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) feature books, films and celebrities throughout the show’s seven-season run.

Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather, in which some of the most famous film narratives of all time, occur as a single film Gilmore’s daughters references over and over again.
