40 Gilmore Girls Facts That’ll Make You Say “Oy With the Poodles Already!”
There were way more than 1,000 daisies at Lorelai’s proposal.
*Very old spoiler alert:* Who could forget the epic proposal at the end of season one? You know, the one where Lorelai’s then-boyfriend Max Medina (Scott Cohen) proposes with a room full of 1,000 yellow daisies? After Lorelai told Max about her dream proposal (“There should be a thousand yellow daisies, and candles, and a horse, and I don’t know what the horse is doing there unless you’re riding it, which seems a little over-the-top…”) he took her words to heart. In reality, there were more like three to four times as many yellow daisies as what Lorelai talked about. Creator-director Amy Sherman-Palladino explained to EW, “A thousand yellow daisies actually sounds like a lot, but when you put a thousand yellow daisies in a big room, like our set, it’s kind of like a table arrangement. Three or four times we had to send people back to get yellow daisies. I think we wiped out yellow daisies on the West Coast.”
