7. Sean Gunn, who plays Kirk, made his first appearance in episode 1.2 ("The Lorelais' First Day at Chilton"), but not as Kirk. / Via Tumblr

His character was named "Mick" and he was installing a DSL server at the Lorelai's home.


11. Luke's character was originally written to be played by a woman, but the producers figured that "there wasn't enough testosterone" in the series. That resulted in Scott Gordon-Patterson turning the character around.

12. Luke wasn't signed on to be a series regular; he was only supposed to appear in the pilot, but after the discovery of the undeniable chemistry between him and Lauren Graham, he was contracted for more episodes.


14. Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) was supposed to have his own spin-off show called Windward Circle. But due to the high cost of filming on location in Venice, California, the WB changed their minds and decided not to go forward with it.

16. Rory occasionally speaks Spanish with Esperanza, where she uses moderate broken Spanish. Ironically, Bledel identifies as Hispanic and she can speak Spanish fluently. English is her second language.
