“Leave the pot, Ethel”

LORELAI: Leave the pot, Ethel.
LUKE: I’m just an enabler.

Lorelai is referencing Ethel Mertz, from the television show, I Love Lucy, previously and frequently discussed. In the show, Lucy often had coffee with her best friend Ethel, and here Lorelai implies that Luke is her best friend – as long as he has coffee to enable her caffeine addiction.
