Lauren Graham can talk faster than almost anyone else on TV. Indeed, part of the anticipation for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life comes from wanting to hear Graham unleash Lorelai Gilmore’s motormouth skills once again. So when Graham stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show on Monday for a game of Five Second Rule, DeGeneres modified the rules specifically for her. While the host had to name three things in five seconds, Graham had to name four things in five seconds for each category.

Unsurprisingly, Graham proved fully capable of talking so quickly. For instance, one category asked the contestants to name things they bring over to someone’s house for Christmas. DeGeneres hit her three (hot chocolate, kittens, and dogs) and Graham easily hit four (candles, wine, dessert, and presents). Eventually, the game ended in a tie.

Watch the clip below, and then catch up on EW’s coverage of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life before it hits Netflix Friday.
