Henry the Eighth and the Roman Empire

SOOKIE: I want everything to be perfect. We are gonna make this kid think that he died and went to heaven.
JACKSON: Or Henry the Eighth’s house.

Another mention of Sookie’s cooking being compared to one of Henry VIII’s Tudor feasts.

A little later, Lorelai says Sookie is about to break her own record for the most food cooked outside the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire also has a reputation for sustained and lavish eat-a-thons – their banquets could last ten hours, and multiple courses were the rule. Of course, this was only for the wealthy.

Lorelai seems to get straight into the historical feast spirit, by calling Rory “Milady”.
