Lorelai Out of Water

A twist on the familiar idiom, A fish out of water, referring to someone who feels awkward or uncomfortable in an unfamiliar environment. The earliest known example comes from The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer in 1483, and was about someone riding a horse, which they weren’t used to.

In this case, the episode is actually about fishing – something Lorelai knows nothing about.
