The “Gilmore Girls” are known for their quick wit and even quicker dialogue, so Ellen DeGeneres decided to put star Lauren Graham’s speed talking skills to the test.

The duo played a game of Five Second Rule, but DeGeneres modified the rules of the game in her favor. DeGeneres had to name three things in five seconds, while Graham — who plays mom Lorelai Gilmore opposite Alexis Bidel as Rory Gilmore — had to name four things in five seconds.

The game ultimately ended in a tie, due to the handicap, but Graham proved she can still spit out words as fast as she could when “Gilmore Girls” ended in 2007. The Netflix revival series, “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” starts streaming on Netflix this Friday.

The four mini-movies will pick up almost 10 years after we last saw Bledel and Graham in their famous mother-daughter roles. Luke (Scott Patterson) and Lorelai are together, while Emily (Kelly Bishop) is a widow. Rory is now a hard-hitting journalist.

Melissa McCarthySean Gunn, Keiko Ageno, Liza Weil, Matt Czuchry, Milo Ventimiglia, Jared Padelecki and Yanic Truesdale are also on board to reprise their roles.

The original series debuted in 2000 on the WB, which morphed into the CW in 2006. It ran for seven seasons and ended on May 15, 2007, following single mother Lorelai Gilmore and her relationship with her daughter. They lived in the town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, which was populated by a wide range of eccentric characters.
