Rory and Lorelai might have spent their lives pinching pennies, but their off-screen counterparts Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham won’t be worrying about cash flow for a quite awhile.
According to a report from Variety, the stars of the highly anticipated “Gilmore Girls” revival on Netflix made $750,000 per episode. That may seem like a lot of money — who are we kidding, it’s A LOT of money — but considering how much Netflix stands to make off of these four episodes, we think it’s more than fair.
We’ve got absolutely no clue how Graham and Bledel plan to spend their hard-earned fortune, but we do have a few ideas about how Rory and Lorelai would blow $750,000.
650 pairs of Jimmy Choo’s
Coming in at $1,150 a pair, Jimmy Choo’s would be Lorelai’s go-to purchase with a sudden influx of cash.
15 years of Yale tuition
The pricey tuition of a year at Yale would absolutely be Rory’s first purchase.
300,000 cups of coffee
So this money would last … 10 years at best? At the rate Rory and Lorelai drink coffee, it’s impossible to tell.
18,600 boxes of Mallomars
Nothing says happy birthday like a table full of mallomars, and something tells us Rory and Lorelai would need a lifetime supply at the ready.
We would not want to receive the invitation to that DAR meeting … Can you imagine Emily (Kelly Bishop) and Rory’s blowout over this many balalaikas?
26,000 bouquets of yellow daisies
Only cheapskates propose with 1,000 yellow daisies. Nothing says “marry me” like a truckload of weeds.
An antique humidor is a hard gift to find when shopping for Richard Gilmore (Edward Herrmann), made harder by the fact that a good one is at least $800 a pop.
1,875 Bangles tickets
Ninth row dream seats aren’t cheap, but Lorelai and Rory could probably buy out the stadium if they wanted.
31,000 ‘Babette ate oatmeal’ T-shirts
Kirk’s Stars Hollow novelty tees weren’t exactly flying off the shelves, but maybe the girls have had a change of heart in the past eight years?
178 dog statues
Lorelai built a pretty good rapport with Emily’s “horrifying” dog statues, so she could probably buy them off her mom for a bargain.
150,000 Macy Gray CD’s
When your mom keeps stealing your favorite Macy Grey CD, it’s probably time to buy in bulk. You never know when you’re going to want to crank “I Try” and despair over your social life.
32 Jeep Wranglers
How much are we willing to bet that Lorelai still drives that same old Jeep Wrangler around Stars Hollow to this day? Seems silly when she could buy herself 32 brand new ones.
31,250 baseball caps
Luke might only have two caps (the blue from Lorelai and the black break-up hat), but why settle for two when you could stuff your closet with thousands?
7,500 cases of Zima
If Luke ever proposes again to Lorelai, they better celebrate with Zima. And now, they can buy boxes for everyone they know!
“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” premieres Friday, Nov. 25 on Netflix.
