I found some online, and then one of our [crew members]'s sisters had a son who was into wrestling. … She brought us all her son's wrestling photos, and I photoshopped Jackson's face onto them. Then Brenda [Maben, the costume designer,] took the images and heat-pressed them at Kinko's. We were still ironing them on and got them onto Jackson just in time.”

“When someone said to me that Gypsy had ended up with Andrew… I don’t even know why I thought this but I said, ‘Gypsy? She’s got a crush on Lorelai,'” Rose Abdoo said at the festival. “She’s so delighted to be in any scene with Lorelai. I’m sure you guys remember the episode where the town has pink ribbons and blue ribbons [after Luke and Lorelai break up.] I was very protective over her. …Gypsy loves Lorelai.”
