** Luke and Lorelai tried to keep their RelationshipUprgade (from close freinds to boyfriend-girlfriend) when they had sex in Luke's apartment above his diner. They were found out immediately when Lorelai went down to the diner for a cup of coffee early in the morning wearing one of Luke's shirts, forgetting the diner would be open for breakfast and full of customers.
** Lane Kim and Henry Cho kept it secret, especially from Mrs. Kim. Ironically, Henry would probably be the perfect boyfriend for Lane in her mother's eyes, but Lane decides to hide the relationship since she thinks her parents would either never approve or approve of him so much that Lane wouldn't like him anymore. Eventually Henry broke up with her when he got sick of all the effort and not being able to go out on a real date with her.
** Lane and Dave, her bandmate. Dave really went an extra mile on that one, and pretended to be really mean to her in front of their bandmates. In order to hide that specific relationship from her mother, she pretended to date Yung Chu (who was using her to hide his relationship with his secret Japanese girlfriend).
** Lorelai Gilmore dated Max Medina and they kept it hidden because he was her daughter, Rory's, teacher. They were serious and got engaged, so people found out.
** Lorelai and Jason "Digger" Stiles kept their relationship hidden from her parents because he worked with her father, Richard, and her parents thought they would not be suited to each other romantically. Digger strongly disapproved of Lorelai's decision and always wanted to be honest, saying that it all eventually gets revealed and it is bound to be embarrassing.
** Lorelai and her ex Christopher try to hide their return to each other because she thought no one would approve.

* ShippingTorpedo: Emily loves doing this to boyfriends she considers 'unsuitable' for Lorelai and Rory. She tries to break up Luke and Lorelai by bullying him and pushing Christopher back into the picture. (They split up temporarily but get back together soon after).
** She pulls a similar trick with Rory and Dean by introducing Rory to "better prospects" (including [[{{SpoiledBrat}} Logan]]). This time she succeeds. When Dean realized he couldn't fit into her world, he broke up with her.

to:

* ShippingTorpedo: Emily loves doing this ShippingTorpedo:
** '''Lorelai''' is against some of Rory's boyfriends. Considering she's her mother, she has a right
to worry and to her credit, she doesn't openly meddle in her relationships.
*** She is not fond of Rory/Jess and instead ships the rival pair Rory/Dean.
*** Later Lorelai opposes Rory/Dean since he cheats on his wife Lindsey with Rory.
*** Lorelai is not a fan of Rory/Logan because Logan brings Rory back to the rich life that Lorelai ran away from.
** '''Richard''' and '''Emily''' are willing to undermine the girls' relationships if they happen to consider their
boyfriends 'unsuitable', often to the point of RelationshipSabotage:
*** Everybody in Rory's life in Stars Hollow views Dean as a good boyfriend but Emily and Richard dislike his lower-class background and lack of interest in academic pursuit.
*** Emily is livid when
she considers 'unsuitable' for Lorelai hears that Rory dates Jess and Rory. She she's unable to see him as anything than a typical troubled bad boy.

** Rory quickly becomes anti-Christopher/Lorelai despite them being her parents. She soon realizes they're a poor match and ships the opposing Luke/Lorelai.
** Marty is in love with Rory and thus not a fan of her and Logan.
** In a humorous example, Taylor initially opposes Luke and Lorelai's relationship out of a fear of what the breakup would do to the town. He even draws up maps for a division in the event of a breakup.

* WillTheyOrWontThey: Especially Luke, but also all the rest of Lorelai and Rory's love interests. With one exception, they ''always'' do. [[spoiler:This particular plot point was established in the first episode and did not resolve until the final scenes of the series finale. Much like Ross and Rachel, it literally could not have been dragged any further.]]
** The town considered the relationship with Luke a constant source of entertainment. [[spoiler:They finally marry in "Fall", with Rory, Lane, and Michel as their witnesses.]]
** Rory and Jess during Season 2. [[spoiler: They do but break up at the end of Season 3. Come and go, during Season 4 and 6 as Jess reappears a few times, leaving the question of them dangling]].

The show, like many popular properties, suffered its share of ExecutiveMeddling. After the sixth season, contract disputes resulted in the departure of the creators and showrunners, CreatorCouple Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino. (They had begged for a larger writing staff--something the studio was obliged to hire after they were let go.) After the seventh, the show was canceled, without a real ending. On October 19, 2015, {{Netflix}} announced that it has closed a deal with Warner Brothers to release a limited series revival, titled ''Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life''. This six-hour, four-episode mini-series was released on November 25, 2016. Basically every actor who was or had ever been important to the show expressed an interest in returning, though many (particularly [[Series/ThisIsUs Milo Ventimiglia]], [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Jared Padalecki]], [[Series/HowToGetAwayWithMurder Liza Weil]], Melissa [=McCarthy=] and [[Series/SwitchedAtBirth Vanessa Marano]]) had very limited screentime due to the compressed narrative and their own commitments to other projects. All episodes were written and directed by the Palladinos, and included the specific four words which Amy had intended to close the original show with.
