EMILY: We know that it’s [Europe] there in the spring but we never go in the spring because we always go in the fall.
LORELAI: It’s getting a little too Lewis Carroll for me.
Lewis Carroll was the pen name name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), an English writer, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon, and photographer. In his fantasy works such as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, earlier discussed, Carroll constantly plays with language and logic in a nonsensical way. Emily’s statement would not sound too out of place in Carroll’s Wonderland.
