About This Quiz

The beloved "Gilmore Girls" series introduced quick-witted mother-daughter duo Lorelai and Rory, but are you quick-witted enough to beat this quiz?

In October 2000, The WB premiered the series about Lorelai, a single mother raising her bright and ambitious daughter, Rory in their small town of Stars Hollow. You witnessed the quick banter between mother and child, the meddlesome behavior of the town's residents, and even their sometimes explosive town hall meetings. Not to mention the complex relationship between Lorelai and her own mother and how it drastically differed from her relationship with Rory. 

You watched Rory blossom from a shy high school student to an Ivy League graduate who endures heartbreak and experiences love. You enjoyed the  long-winded exchanges between Luke and Lorelai over her obsession with caffeine and the subtle flirtations between them that had everyone rooting for them. 

As a devoted viewer, do you remember Rory's first kiss? Can you rattle off the names of Lorelai's boyfriends? Do you recall the name of the actor who played Tristan?
