The movie Luke turns on in the hospital is The Philadelphia Story, a classic Katherine Hepburn/Cary Grant/Jimmy Stewart film. The storyline has parallels to Lorelai's relationship to Christopher. Hepburn and Grant play a rich society couple who grew up together and fell in love. The scene Luke is watching is just before they get married for the second time. When they mention 'eloping to Maryland', Luke realises why Lorelai mentioned Maryland when she asked him to elope. See more
