So I went back out and I said, “We’ll do one more.” I made it get the tongue right in there and then I said to Mary, “Look, I’m sorry about that.” She was like, “What are you sorry for, it’s the most fun I’ve had in ages.” It was a lot of fun. She was a really good sport. We have to bring her back, you know. We really want to see that character again. It was so great we got a second season and fingers crossed she’s back.
Wood: Yes, it was a great episode, too, I think in the sense that it explored some of the psychological background to the Ryan character and developing his back story a little bit as well, sort of an interesting multi-layered episode that I think we’re really proud of.
Gann: I’m not really proud of my last comment. Now that I’ve heard Elijah’s really intelligent answer to that, I mean all I talked about is making out with ... I vow to have more intelligent answers for future questions.
Wood: But, but look, I mean ultimately the make-out is a stellar, very important piece to the puzzle that we created.
Gann: Well, yes, yes. Thank you, thank you. It is, and it’s also like the humanizing of behavior and I’ve seen dogs just get their tongue right in the mouths of humans.
Wood: Yes. And, and, you can also look at that as – is Ryan making out with his own mom? ... is he ... ?
Gann: Yes, gee, all right.
Wood: I didn’t mean to open a can of beans.
Gann: Maybe it’s time we move on to the next question.
Since every episode basically starts off with its own little problem and it gets tied up at the end, we have the little recurring things that happen, but for the season finale, is it going to be something like that or are you guys going to give us a cliffhanger?
Wood: I don’t know how much we –
Gann: ... question – yes, I don’t know how much we can say. Let’s just say that there will be more questions than answers.
Gann: There will be answers – that doesn’t mean there won’t be answers.
Wood: There will be.
Gann: Yes, I think we – yes, it’s a lot less packaged. The last two episodes are a lot less packaged. You’re right in that the episodes do start with a problem that gets somewhat resolved by the end, but you know, now that we’re this far into the season we’re – and we’ve really created the rules and the parameters of the show we’re able to, I think, stretch those a little bit and play with the form a bit more so it’s a little less packaged.
