Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The appearance of the Gilmore mansion is very different in this episode than in following episodes. Here there are steps leading up to the front door, but none in later episodes, and the area people park their cars changes significantly as well.

Trivia: In some episodes, Rory speaks Spanish (e.g when she is talking to her grandmother's maid). She speaks very poorly, typical "school-Spanish". This is just acting; Spanish is actually Alexis Bledel's first language. Her mother is from Mexico and her father is from Argentina.

Chosen answer: Lorelai and Christopher get married impulsively in Paris but they get divorced shortly after returning home. I don't know the exact number of days or weeks but they definitely weren't married for more than a couple of months.
