Gilmore Girls Cast Discusses the Show’s Final Four Words

Apparently they're "philosophical"

Gilmore Girls super fan Jimmy Fallon grilled cast members Scott Patterson, Liza Weil and Sean Gunn about the show’s final four words on The Tonight Show.

Only Patterson, who plays Luke Danes on the show, knew the final four words, which creator Amy Sherman-Palladino used to end the Netflix revival. Of course, Patterson wouldn’t spoil the ending, which he called “philosophical,” but that didn’t prevent Fallon from guessing with the other cast members.

“Maybe it’s ‘Kirk is your overlord,'” said Gunn, who plays Kirk Gleason. Patterson revealed his rejected pitch to Sherman-Palladino was, “Drop the gun, Kirk.”

“Stars Hollow never existed,” Fallon offered as his guess.
