“There is no there there”

MAX: I kind of picked something up there.
LORELAI: Okay. Well, drop it back on the ground and kick it under the couch, because there is no there there.

Lorelai’s comment is a famous quote from Everybody’s Autobiography, a 1937 memoir by American author Gertrude Stein which continues on from the 1933, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. The quote refers to Stein’s disappeared childhood home in Oakland, California.
