"gilmore girls" has been sort of a pasten thing until now, and when we went to do the revival, we had wrapped our second season of "how to get aw with murd" so it got to -- it was lovely to be able to do one thing, you know. we didn't have to do it all at the same time. and yeah, they kind of exist separately. but yes, it was bizarre to go back. >> jimmy: it was weird to go back? >> yeah. >> super weird. jimmy: sean, did bringing kirk back? did you go, yeah, no. >> it's just weird. yeah, no, i mean, the whole thing is crazy. it feels like the show is more popular now than it ever was, you know, even when it was on the air. so to hear, you know, fans are so excited for it, for a show that we did, you know, we started doing it 15 years ago or whatever, it's crazy. >> jimmy: and you've got a good ride of your character. what a fun character.
you knock it out of the park. >> you know, i came on as the dsl installer in the first episode i did. i was just supposed to be a a one-day job, you know? back in 2000. and you know, here i am now. >> jimmy: but you chose this character, he's just so out there and weird. [ cheers and applause ] and i loved it. but all three of you, home runs. i mean, i feel like, i mean after how many seasons? was it seven seasons? >> yeah. >> seven. >> jimmy: you really got to work as an actor. what an arc. me guys. i'm like, it's crazy. that's how great television is, i think. because movies are great as well, t they're two hours, you get in, you know the character, you get out. a show is -- i mean, i got 60 hours left. [ laughter ] and i'm already -- i'm already three quarters of the way through. so, i mean, did you get -- as soon as you hit the set do, you go, oh, i know what luke is all about? yeah, yeah. >> you know, i thought i did. i put the hat on, and i thought that would be the big shining moment that the character would come back. it's been ten years. i had a son. you know, i was a different
i was more laid back, i was happier. you know, i had this little boy running around. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and i got on set and got into the diner and started rehearsing a scene, amy was directing and i had no idea what i was doing. i didn't feel like the guy at all. so i asked permission to go take a walk around stars hollow and when i got to the gazebo, i sat down and, you know, i started feeling like the guy again. and i went back in. >> jimmy: oh my god. >> i thought i was going to get fired. >> jimmy: you can't get fired. you're luke. you fire them. what are you talking about? it's a telephone, get out of here. that i thought, i need to take a walk. i might as well go walk back to my trailer and take off. >> jimmy: no way. amy sherman paladino, she had this idea, it's day in the life, it's four seasons, is what i'm assuming. i don't even want to know too much 'cause i don't want to spoil anything. but i know that it does end with the four words, right, that she planned on it always ending? >> yes, i believe that's right. >> jimmy: does anyone know what the four words are? i do. >> jimmy: you do? >> i don't know.
know? >> no, i want to watch it with the fans. >> jimmy: maybe it's "i don't want to know." [ light laughter ] well, it could be that. >> jimmy: it's tricky. >> i'll tell you what it's not. >> jimmy: what's that? >> maybe it's "kirk is your overlord." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i could see that. >> my idea to amy was "drop the gun, kirk," and she rejected it. >> jimmy: drop the gun, kirk. no. but it's a much deeper, right? >> it's more philosophical. >> jimmy: it is. >> you had some better ideas in your monologue. >> jimmy: right? that stars hollow never existed. it's like this whole thing is in a snow globe and that's the way it ends. >> who's going to pay my mortgage in that case? >> jimmy: no, exactly. yeah. i was just trying to figure it all out because i'm trying to think is it a carol king reference. it's very tricky thing. so i don't know what -- >> yeah, it's bigger than all of us. >> jimmy: yeah. it is. >> yeah. >> jimmy: no, that's six words. [ laughter ] i can't wait to see this. it comes out friday, but i love you guys. i love you guys. i love you guys. on behalf of all your fans.
