Their lips are sealed! The cast of Gilmore Girls hinted at the much-anticipated last four words of the Netflix revival at the Los Angeles premiere on Friday, November 18. But lest anyone give away any secrets, none of Stars Hollow’s favorite residents fully spilled the beans.
Scott Patterson, who plays Lorelai’s beau and local curmudgeon Luke, joked that he had the key to the secret.
“Drop the gun, scumbag,” he told reporters, when asked what the final four words were. “That’s me saying that to Kirk, or me saying that to Taylor, or me saying it to … I wouldn’t call Miss Patty that. I would say to her, ‘Drop the gun, beautiful.’”
Keiko Agena, who plays Lane, Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) best friend, added her two cents. “Tickle bunny naughty bits,” she told Us. “Oh, I don’t know — that one might not be great.”
Yanic Truesdale, who plays Lorelai’s (Lauren Graham) concierge on the series, was more coy, telling reporters that though he did know the final words, he wasn’t allowed to tell.
“My final four words would be my feeling at the end of the four episodes,” he said. “‘Hope it was good!’ There you go, there’s four words.”
Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has gone to great lengths to tease the important final four words in promoting the Netflix revival. In an interview earlier this month, she told TV Line that in order to ensure complete confidentiality, “we never put them down on paper.
“If someone has a script with the last four words in them, they are not the last four words,” she said, adding, “We shifted [the dialogue] around a lot, did a couple of rewrites. It was a little silly. It was a little cloak and dagger.”
Regardless of what the last four words are, however, Gilmore Girls star Graham told Us that it was the first few words she read of the script that have had the most lasting impact on her.
“The day I first read this script, back in 2000, it was the time I connected most strongly to a piece of material and was dying to do it from the first words,” she told Us on Friday. “And so to get to do it again, to come back with a sense of appreciation and gratitude for the fans who helped bring it back, and just to get to be in a moment and know how lucky you are was a real treat, a real rare life experience.”
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres on Netflix Friday, November 25.
