“On a clear day you can see all the way to the garbage cans”

RORY: Tempting. Do you know that on a clear day you can see all the way to the garbage cans behind Al’s Pancake World?

A possible allusion to the 1970 comedy-drama musical film, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, directed by Vincente Minnelli, and based on the 1965 stage production of the same name, with lyrics by Alan Jay Sherman and music by Burton Lane. It stars Barbra Streisand, a favourite of Lorelai’s, as a woman who undergoes hypnotherapy to give up smoking, but in the process discovers she is the reincarnation of a seductive Regency lady.

The film received mixed reviews, but its reputation has endured over time.
