“The thing that reads a lot”

[Rory enters with lots of bags]
LORELAI: Oh, behold in theatres now, the thing that reads a lot.

A possible allusion to the 1951 sci-fi film The Thing from Another World, often referred to as just The Thing. Directed by Christian Nyby and produced by Howard Hawks, it is about an alien from a flying saucer crash found frozen in the ice and accidentally revived. It was a commercial success and is considered one of the great science fiction films of the decade.
