“Calgon, take me away”

LORELAI: So you came downstairs … to sit on an uncomfortable chair in an empty diner that smells like onion rings.
LUKE: Yes.
LORELAI: Calgon, take me away.

Calgon is a brand of bath and beauty products. In 1979, they came up with the slogan, “Calgon, take me away!”. Television commercials through the 1980s showed a woman escaping from her troubles in a relaxing bath filled with Calgon bubble bath.
