Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will make a guest appearance on the Oct. 25 episode of the WB's "Gilmore Girls."

"I am a big fan of `Gilmore Girls' and I had a great time," Albright said in a statement. "It was an opportunity to do something different for a quick minute, and I learned how hard it is to memorize those lines."

Albright, secretary of state under President Clinton, filmed a scene with Alexis Bledel, who plays Rory Gilmore. The episode involves the ongoing estrangement between Rory and her mother, Lorelai Gilmore, played by Lauren Graham.

Norman Mailer and Carole King also have appeared on the show. Mailer appeared as himself, and King played the owner of the town's music store in two episodes.

Still, Albright left quite an impression on the WB set.

"If you think she seems brilliant and sassy strutting around the Middle East, you should try talking to her in person," "Gilmore Girls" executive producer Amy Sherman-Palladino said in a statement. "We are very honored, very lucky, and soooo not worthy."
