While Patterson admitted that he does know what the final words will be, Gunn opted not to be informed. "I want to watch it with the fans and see," he explained. "Maybe it's 'Kirk is your overlord.'"
Patterson joked that he pitched "Drop the gun, Kirk," while Fallon -- going along with his snow globe theory -- thinks the last words will be, "Stars Hollow never existed."
Sherman-Palladino has said that she's known the last four words of the series since the beginning, and hopes that fans keep it to themselves while watching the final episode.
"It would be great if people who only wanted to see the last four words first got some therapy before it actually aired and got rid of that inclination because it really is a journey leading up to the last four words and it's going to mean a lot more if you've taken the journey," she said during the summer Television Press Association press tour in July. "It's going to mean a lot less if you just flip to the last page. That being said, what can I do?"
