This is really cute here. When you actually have the balls to tell a girl that you like her, you want this kind of reaction to it.
It's awesome when you can write it for yourself, huh? How things pan out. I remember in the script, it said "She's so cute." Like, that was the stage direction. I was like, "Hmmmm."
Yeah and you know what, when I look at that shot I think "She's so fuckin' cute."

These making-of sections usually add a lot to the movie but usually don't stand out. This one had a very specific quality, quite close to that of the movie. People seemed to have enjoyed working on this movie and they all seem to have an actual personality, but not in a pseudo-fake-glamor way. And it really doesn't seem to be a personality cult despite the fact that the movie seems to be largely Zach Braff's pet project. Braff himself comes out as a normal person who worked on a movie he cared about. This idea (mentionned by Natalie Portman) that it's nice to work with young people in both cast and crew is well-taken. The crew really seems typical of "Post-Busters" who do things their own way, regardless of whether or not it's completely different from what people have done in the past.
