It's funny. I saw this guy - I never met him before - I saw him at a TV convention 8 years ago - and we were just passing each other in the hallway, saying a quick hello.

And I'm taking my name back.

I don't know who he thinks he is.


Add that! I think it's funny! I don't know who he thinks he is! Hahaha!

He should Michael C about getting a new name!

First of all, I apologize for that lame scrawny dance.


Start with that.

And then to answer the questions - he TOTALLY did. He would take us, Molly and me, to record stores and stuff. He would be the one turning US on to music! And whether it was like, literally the Beatles - he used to make mixtapes, I swear, on cassette - so the thing is, this is another thing you can add Victoria - he had a room in his house that looked like a record store, and he had a computer in the corner, and every wall was ALL music. At that point in time, hip-hop wasn't really there yet, New Wave and everything was what was big then, we had bands from the US and the UK, he would have old Beatles albums, all kinds of stuff. He wrote in that room, the room full of 12 inch vinyls, and he would literally write music cues into his scripts.

Because he would be listening as he would write his scripts, so it started to seep through.

So a lot of the music in his films - that was him deciding it - a lot of times, people didn't know who those bands were! He was like a guy running a record store. And literally that room in the record store - that's what I'm saying, it became part of his style, when the characters would hook up at the end, or be so much happier, and there was a music cue - it would be from his own inspiration.

It's very interesting, how he incorporated that into his writing.

I hope so, because if not, what was the point of all that group therapy? Right? Haha!

But what's cool about it is to see the next generation, to see that it resonates. It really is that kind of thing. People project themselves onto the different characters, in an emotional way, which is cool and interesting.

I think it's rare for a film to do that.

And I think that's why it's held up, in some ways.

Seeing him sit next to the camera, when we were filming and shooting, and he would always be laughing. He was always directing from that vantage point, so that was cool.

I don't remember that, but I like Subway!
