Alex Borstein attends the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton

Alex Borstein was set to play Sookie St. James in Gilmore Girls. She even appeared in the unaired pilot for the series. Then, Fox wouldn’t allow Borstein to do both MadTV and Gilmore Girls. Melissa McCarthy, a relatively unknown at the time, stepped in to fill the role and shined in it. Borstein didn’t disappear from Gilmore Girls completely, though. She was close friends with show creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino and writer Dan Palladino, and they worked her into the series when feasible. Most loyal fans already know she took on two different side roles during the show’s seven-season run. What most people don’t know is that Borstein also lent her voice to the series. 

Alex Borstein lent her voice to a memorable season 2 episode 

There are a handful of Gilmore Girls episodes that seemed uneventful at the time but remain seared into the brains of fans. The season 2 episode, “Eight O’Clock at the Oasis,’ is one of those episodes. While nothing truly major happens in the episode, Lorelai Gilmore is tricked into caring for her new neighbor’s lawn. Dwight, an oversharer, told Lorelai all about his troubled marriage and his angry wife, Doris, before giving her instructions on watering the lawn, all within moments of meeting her. During the watering duties, Rory Gilmore learned just how angry Dwight’s wife was with him when she left an answering machine message that still has us shaking in our boots.
