Twenty-One Is the Loneliest Number - S6-E7

Other mistake: Though I love the 21st birthday at the casino plan, it's flawed. Rory will not be able to play blackjack until she is 21. She can't be playing when she turns 21. Casinos, to the best of my knowledge, won't let you on the gaming floor unless you are 21. She has to turn 21 first.

Ellexx

Red Light on the Wedding Night - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Lorelai, Rory and Max are having breakfast at Luke's, their coffee cups change from red to blue in one shot. Also Max's coffee cup goes back and forth from the left side of his paper to the right. (00:14:50)

Lorelai Out of Water - S3-E12

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the episode Rory and Lorelai are about to open the garage door. You can see a crew member in the reflection of the glass moving his arms around the camera - you can also slightly see his head for a split second. (00:39:00)

Roshe

Here Comes the Son - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Luke knocks on the kitchen door (at the back of the house) and calls Lorelai out to talk on the back porch, Lorelai grabs the doorknob to go out that door, but in the very next shot from outside Lorelai is actually walking out of the side living room door which is at the side of the house while Luke is standing there. Two completely different doors, at different sides of the house, and the back porch is not connected to the side/front porch. (00:06:10)

Love and War and Snow - S1-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Rory gets the photo album from her mother's bedroom and shows her grandparents, just as Emily reminds Richard about getting the baby dress in London, a piece of filming equipment can be seen at the right side of the screen. (00:27:25)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Kirk introduces himself as "Mick" in the second episode. From episode 3 and throughout the series his name is "Kirk."

Christopher Returns - S1-E15

Visible crew/equipment: When Lorelai argues with Richard in his study, nothing gets resolved and Richard says that he's tired, then in the last shot of Lorelai a crewmember's fingers can be seen holding equipment at the right side of the screen. (00:25:55)

That Damn Donna Reed - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Lorelai and Luke are in Luke's Diner to choose the color for the walls, Luke turns around the 'closed'-sign on the door. In this shot the venetian blind at the door is quite messed-up; partly closed, partly opened. In the following shot, where all the people are standing outside Luke's Diner looking through the windows, the venetian blind is orderly and completely opened.

Love and War and Snow - S1-E8

Other mistake: When Rory is dropped off in the morning after spending the night with her grandparents, she walks from the car to the porch where Lorelai is standing, but even though it's snowing there aren't any snowflakes anywhere on Rory. (00:39:10)

That Damn Donna Reed - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: In the first scene when Dean brings pizza and they are discussing about Donna Reed, in one shot Lorelai is opening the pizza box and she and Rory take a piece and start eating while they are talking. In the following shot, the piece of pizza in Lorelai's hand is gone and Rory takes a piece from the box - you can see that the pizza is complete again.

Haunted Leg - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When the new maid tells Emily the dinner is ready even though it's only 6:30, Emily concedes and they all head to the dining room, and just as Emily says they all can be in bed by 9:00, the boom pole and mic can be seen in the living room behind them, at the top of the screen. (00:33:20)

Haunted Leg - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: After Emily tells the new maid it would wonderful to remember the difference between the bells, as Emily, Lorelai, and Rory walk away from the front door, the white, red, yellow, and green tape marks can be seen on the floor behind them. (00:32:00)

More quotes from 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.

Show generally

Question: Does Lane live with both her parents? I've heard her talk about "parents" in plural but I've never seen her father, nor heard anyone talk about him. Anyone who knows?

Answer: Yes, Lane lives with both her parents. Her father does live with them, but he was only seen in the Netflix revival.
