Gilmore Girls

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.

Trivia: Although, Rory loves coffee in the show, she hates it in real life. So, whenever she gets coffee from Luke, a stand, etc, Coke is the actual beverage in the glass.

Emily In Wonderland - S1-E19

Trivia: While waiting for the movie to start, the actress portraying Lorelai sneakily gives the middle finger for a total of four seconds to the actor playing Kirk. The actress playing Rory seems to know this was planned because she looks like she's trying very hard to stifle a laugh.
