MIA: Nice to see you, Lucas.
LUKE: You’re the only person in the world who can call me that, Mia.
We now discover that Luke’s name is actually Lucas, and Luke is his nickname. Even Lorelai didn’t know that before. It seems like a definite Star Wars reference, with the film featuring a hero named Luke Skywalker, written and directed by George Lucas (who appears to have been inspired by his own name for Luke S, get it? – both were raised in the desert, and have several other parallels, which George Lucas has admitted).
