Lucy, I’m home!

LORELAI (to Rory): Lucy, I’m home!

A catchphrase from the classic 1950s sitcom I Love Lucy, starring real-life husband and wife Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. In the show, Ricky would call this out to his wife on returning home.

I Love Lucy was often mentioned on Gilmore Girls, and as one of the first female-centred TV comedies must have served as an inspiration to Amy Sherman-Palladino. Perhaps a little of Lucy’s warm-hearted, wrong-headed wackiness is even part of Lorelai’s character.
