LORELAI: Mom, I know Gran gives you a hard time, but she did not tell anyone about this guy for a reason.
EMILY: Yes, because she’s embarrassed. She should be. He was dressed like a bookie.

Bookie, a bookmaker, a person that accepts and pays off bets on sporting and other events at agreed-upon odds. The idea that bookies dress in tracksuits seems to be influenced by the TV show The Sopranos – I wonder if Emily has also seen this favourite show of Lorelai’s?
