The Glad Man

DEAN: You know, when all this happened with you and me and Rory, I figured I’d just stay out of everyone’s way, that that would be easiest. But now, I’m looking at you and I’m thinking, I’m gonna run from him? The Glad Man.

I think Dean is referring to “The Man from Glad”, a mascot for the Glad Products Company, which specialises in trash bags – as a dig at Jess for taking out the garbage. The mascot is a white-haired man in a white suit who arrives to save housewives from domestic challenges, with the help of spy paraphernalia, as a nod to The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

  1. Thank you!

    This is one of the references that have really bothered me over the years (decades). I’ve done the occasional googling effort but have never found anything that fits. But twenty years later, the mystery’s solved! 🙂

    While I am at it, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas!


    1. This seems to have disappeared as a reference so much that I even had trouble locating a picture – this one is quite blurry, but is one of the better ones. It’s also made a bit harder because Dean doesn’t use the “correct” title – they do this a lot with Gilmore references, and while it’s definitely more realistic that people don’t get references exactly right, it does make finding the source that wee bit harder. Glad to have helped!

      Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and happy New Year!
