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.

Trivia: In the credits at the end, they list that Tanc Sade played Quinn, instead of his real character's name of Finn.

Pilot - S1-E1

Trivia: The girl who mocks Rory for doing her assignment is Tristan's girlfriend at Chilton who dumps him at the party.


Trivia: The bailiff at Luke and Anna's court is the same man who was Rory's teacher at Yale when Logan and his friends burst in, also taught another class at Yale and can be seen as a Stars Hollow resident during the knit-a-thon.


Wedding Bell Blues - S5-E13

Trivia: During the quickly improvised bachelorette party for Emily, Lorelei and Rory talk about the Sheldrakes, the people who were bumped so Emily and Richard could get the Rose Room. The Sheldrakes are a nod to Kelly Bishop's role in the movie Dirty Dancing. The hotel where Johnny Castle and partner performed was called the Sheldrake.

Emily: Well, uh, Rory, I don't think I wore the right shoes for the grand tour. Why don't we just drive?

Emily: Oh, no, I don't think so. Rory hold on a minute.
Rory: Grandma, you will be missing the true Stars Hollow experience if you don't walk. Trust me.
Emily: All right, but I won't wear anything with rhinestones or zebra stripes or anything that has batteries or that sings or make animal noises or moves on its own.
