Gilmore Girls Script

The CW


One of the hallmarks of Gilmore Girls is Lorelai and Rory’s ability to talk really, really fast. We try to quote their lines at the same super-speed, but we might not consider how their style of talking was reflected in the script. The average sitcom TV show script is about 40 to 50 pages but Gilmore Girls‘ was about 70 to 80 pages per episode. Additionally, the show had to come up with different filming methods for the quick speed. An average script page tends to be one minute of screen time but in Gilmore Girls it was about 20 to 25 seconds. In other words, the actors had to work harder than everyone else.
