Every movie referenced/watched in Gilmore Girls (including quotes) !

Buzzfeed once published a list of all the movies referenced in Gilmore Girls, which was great, but also not entirely correct. Because the person who made the list included movies that weren't actually referenced because they misunderstood dialogue or assumed the reference made was about a movie when it was actually about a book or play of the same title. They also just left some out.

I am here to rectify this.

If the reference made could be about either a movie or some other art form of the same name (like To Kill a Mockingbird) and it isn't clear which one they're referencing, I included it. If the reference is clearly not about the movie, I didn't include it.

Films are listed in the order in which they are originally referenced, with the quote(s) listed in the notes.
