More NEW Actual Gilmore Girls Dialogue


In the bleak wilderness that is the absence of the Gilmore Girls movie, I’m now sifting through the garbage and finding sustenance in gems like these.


Actorsite has a few pages of the shooting scripts from a couple of episodes, including this scene from season 4 episode 22, Raincoats & Recipes, wherein the newly rebuilt Dragonfly Inn has its grand re-opening.  Sookie has too many staff in the kitchen; Kirk seeks love (and loving) advice from Luke; Jason returns to win Lorelai back; and Rory goes home to fetch some CDs.

This scene slots in between Jason preparing for a long wait for Lorelai and Lulu telling Kirk she’s ready for bed.

how about some King of Tokyo?


Dinner is over. A lot of the guests have cleared out. Coffee, cookies and board games have started. Jackson and Taylor are playing Monopoly. Rory and Tom are playing backgammon. Luke and Babette are playing Yahtzee. Kirk and Lulu are playing Life.

Taylor, stop it. You’ve counted it three times.

There’s no point in playing if you’re not going to play correctly.

Okay, fine. I’ll give you two hundred dollars and Park Place not to count that money again.


Jackson hands him the money and the property. Taylor chuckles to himself.

TAYLOR (cont’d)
Oh, it’s just too easy.

Read it here, along with the scribbles and crossings out (or should that be crossing outs?  Culs-de-sac?!):

There’s also the pre-shooting script of season 7 episode 6, Go Bulldogs! in which Luke meets April’s swim coach. It’s right on the internet here:

Did anyone reading this ever appear on the show?  I wonder if they let cast members keep the scripts.  And what swag each person took after the show ended?  I remember hearing Courtney Cox took the picture frame on the back of the Friends’ apartment door and I think they each took their apartment key from the last episode.

I’d nab Max’s Proust book, Colonel Plucker and an apron from Doose’s.  What about you?  (I’m pretty sure I’ve asked this question before but anyway).

Pics c/o The WB and Actorsite and please let us Crowdfund the movie.  Please please please.



Rich originally began contributing to GIlmore News as 'Dairyman' in 2013, a reference to the character Dairyman Dick in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, (call me Rich). Here in the UK we were late to the Gilmore party and I don't remember what made me watch my first episode - the one where Lorelai picks Rory up from the police station after she and Logan steal a yacht - but I remember watching it again immediately. And then again. Thankfully, the next show was on the next day and I watched that one three times too. And then the boat one again. I couldn't believe the dialogue was so quick and so funny and I pretended to myself that I was only watching it so I could figure out who I was more keen on - the mom or the daughter. I swore that Aaron Sorkin must have been involved but I couldn't find his name attached anywhere, even on the internet. So I watched and loved and laughed and cried and the day after the series finale, they ran the entire show from the beginning again and Rory turned into a baby so then I was all about Lorelai. Lauren Graham is astonishing ("Mother: Breathtaking") and the show was - and is - lightning in a bottle. It's a treasure for those who watch and get swept up in it, like I did and like the readers of Gilmore News. It's heartbreak and chicken soup, family dysfunction and blind optimism, lighthearted romanticism and balls-out brilliant. Thanks to Arieanna and for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.

    Dear authors of the website,

    Thanks so much for keeping this website going – it’s truly outstanding. Never give it up, so many people love it. :)

    Rich thank you for writing these – i wish i could have a go but you do such a fab job, It keeps the Gilmore magic alive.

    I would take the horoscope, Jess’s book and maybe the insulting copper ball glued to wood thingy – it would be a great conversation starter.

    Perfect time to chime in. Love this site, loved the show. Thanks for keeping the obsession alive… you nail it constantly!

    How about a Luke’s menu, Richard’s stamp collection, or Lane’s drum kit??

  • April 26, 2014 at 10:12 pm

    I’ll take the plastic dancing pork chop at Luke’s, please.

    Shucks guys, you’re making me blush!

    Today I’d choose Kirk’s 24-hour Dance Marathon trophy, the giant ball of wool and needles from the Knitting Marathon and the Town Loner’s protest banner. I bet it actually does say STOP THE NOODLESCOOZE. And I’d nick Jess’s book from Sarah ‘cos that’s brilliant.

    On a serious note folks, do drop us a line if you’d like to contribute something – or things – for the site. Perhaps you fancy stretching your writing muscles, building up a blogging portfolio or just want to air out your inner Gilmore Geek. The Gilmore Community can always do with another enthusiastic voice out there and I’m sure our audience would appreciate a change. I know I would :O)

    Besides, I’ll need the help when things get crazy because the movie’s coming y’know, it really is.

    The monkey lamp
    The cow napkin holder
    Their coffee maker
    A paper bag from Doose’s
    Lorelai’s Jeep (When I went to visit the set in 2007 they were actually selling it online. I kick myself for not buying it!!)
    The chuppah
    And I would steak all my booty in a canvas sack with a big dollar sign on it.

    The Jeep was on sale?! I wonder where it ended up.

    Sorry about any confusion with your post Alysia, for some reason I had to fish it out of the Spam folder!

    I had the Jeep on a second alternate list alongside the Wickham (Wycombe?) house and Logan’s trust fund.

    Max’s dog.

    There. I got dibs. You guys can take all the tat you like because I got the magic dog.

  • May 7, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    *swear swear swear*
    You know I meant Digger, right? Right? Digger’s dog.
    I’m I out of the gang now?
    I still get dibs.

    I actually had Cyrus on my original list too, but took it off since I figured 10 years out he might sadly only be in “Original Dan” mode–.

  • May 7, 2014 at 8:28 pm

    Not much of a difference, from what I remember….

  • May 8, 2014 at 6:35 am

    You guys crack me up :O)

    Emma, you’re relegated to Emily’s ‘safe room’ and you have to take Cyrus with you, whatever state he’s in. If you can’t remember the keycode, we’ll release you so you can be on the team at the inaugural Stars Hollow Con Quiz but you don’t get to answer any questions on pets. Or keycodes.

    I’d take:
    -Rory’s Dean bracelet
    -The clock from Dwights house in 5 o’clock at the oasis
    -A button that says “I do not want to know the Sex of my baby”
    -The monkey lamp,
    -A menu from lukes
    -Max’s copy of Swann’s way
    -The book that Jess steals from Rory’s room
    -The Gilmore Girls House phone or one of their cell phones
    -The Barnyard animal alarm clock or the fuzzy alarm clock
    -The shoes that Lorelei wore to the dance marathon

  • September 22, 2014 at 1:12 pm

    I’d take: *deep breath*
    -Lorelai’s Jeep
    -dog Paul Anka
    -Luke’s Diner Sign
    – The fuzzy purring alarm
    – The farmyard alarm clock (for when the fuzzy one doesn’t purr on time)
    -The evil Swan (To attack anyone I don’t like)
    -A Doose’s apron
    -The Monkey lamp

    Thank you both! Today, hmm. Emily’s Venetian glass apples, James Madison’s door knocker (‘It was commonly known that James Madison liked big knockers’) and Lorelai’s answering machine. My, that’s very home furnishing oriented, isn’t it? And Chris’ 2000 Indian 80-horsepower 5-speed close ratio Andrews transmission motorcycle.
