LORELAI: [on phone] You just flew back on your jet, huh? . . . From Maui?
Maui is the second largest island of the state of Hawaii, famous for its beautiful beaches, and a very popular tourist destination.
While Lorelai actually says “Maui”, the audio doesn’t seem to quite match up. Apparently, she originally said “Bali”, an island in Indonesia which is also a popular tourist destination. “Eight O’clock at the Oasis” aired on October 22 2002 – just ten days after a bomb attack in Bali which killed 202 people and left 209 injured, on October 12 2002. Because of that, Bali was re-recorded as Maui.
