Show generally

Continuity mistake: This was in season six in the Martha's vineyard episode (Valentine's day). Lorelai comes into the kitchen and we see a shot of Rory cooking. Next to her is the orange juicer. In the next shot, it is not there. It reappears as Lorelai is watching Rory cook and Rory reaches into a drawer and pulls it out.

Back in the Saddle Again - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Lorelai sits down with Dean to discuss how "clingy" he is with Rory, both Lorelai and Dean's hand positions change between shots, specifically whether their fingers are laced, resting normally on the table or raised in the air.

Let the Games Begin - S3-E8

Visible crew/equipment: During the Friday night dinner, something that looks like a microphone swings back and forth next to Richard's arm. It is most visible in the first shot of him (from behind).

The Reigning Lorelai - S4-E16

Plot hole: When Emily is dialing a number for Manny Martelli, to make arrangements for the funeral, she only dials two digits. She just got the number from someone else, so there's no way it was speed-dial.

Richard in Stars Hollow - S2-E12

Visible crew/equipment: At one point during Lorelai's argument with Richard at the end of the episode, a boom mic is visible above Lorelai's head. (00:40:25)

Red Light on the Wedding Night - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Rory and Lorelai are testing cakes for the wedding at Fran's bakery, Rory is seen taking pieces out of the raspberry cake several times. However when the angle changes you can see that the cake is whole as if none of it had been eaten. (00:00:45)

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.
