Fat Albert

RORY: Hey.
LORELAI: Hey.
RORY: Hey.
LORELAI: Yeah, look Fat Albert. Get me a soda, will you?

Lorelai is referring to the hero of the animated children’s television show, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids (1972-1985). It was created by comedian Bill Cosby and inspired by his own childhood gang in Philadelphia, and his friend Albert Robertson. In the show, Fat Albert is wise beyond his years, and serves as the conscience of the gang to maintain its integrity. The lead singer of their band, Fat Albert is also athletic and loves sports, despite his weight.

Fat Albert’s catchphrase was “Hey hey hey”.
