Bay of Pigs

LORELAI: And the plan was that [Jess] calls you whenever because his work time varies?
RORY: Yes.
LORELAI: Good plan. Bay of Pigs, was that yours, too?

Lorelai refers to the bay of Pigs Invasion, a failed military landing operation on the coast of Cuba in 1961 by Cuban exiles, covertly financed and directed by the United States. It was aimed at overthrowing Fidel Castro’s communist government. The operation took place at the height of the Cold War, and its failure widened the division between the US and Cuba, while pushing Cuba closer to the Soviets.
